Tired of Tim

The road trip through Hell continued with another ugly loss to Colorado, 10-2.  This game featured all the current glaring flaws of  the 2013 Giants; shitty starting pitching (Tim Lincecum, 3-3, 4.70 ERA) and troubling defense. Three errors today... isn't that like 12 errors in the last seven games? Please tell me that's wrong. I can only hope this is what a a fielding slump looks like, not sure I have ever seen one before. Certainly not one this bad.

Last time he was very good. This time he was very bad. What can I say? Tim Lincecum is tiring to watch. I'm sick of it. We could always chalk it up to Coors Field.  After all, his numbers are very "mile high" :  5 innings, 7 hits, 6 runs, 2 walks, 4 strikeouts. Sure, let's blame it on the the crappy ball park. I'm tired; tired of thinking about how shitty Tim's command is getting. I'm exhausted just reliving Tim's lovely error and spectacular balk.  Yeah, it was the frigging ball park.

Let's hope we play an error free game tomorrow. We must shake this streak of sloppy play before it defines us. Go Giants!

This is the same team that miraculously got to the World Series because of some manic hyperventilation. Obviously they can't maintain that through a boring old regular season, and certainly not on a Mid-May road trip.

I seem to recall the Giants being the worst defensive team in baseball for much of the early going last season. Then, they turned it around. They've played 43 games. There are 119 to go. The fielding will get better. The pitching will get better. Good teams look bad some of the time.

Dave Zirin's take on the labor dispute happening at AT&T. The Comical covered this about a week ago:

In the midst of all the ugly ball-playing, it could get ugly at the Park. I'm not much for politics on a baseball blog, but when you think about the millions flowing through that place, they ought to take care of the people who do the grunt work.
