Remember when, a couple weeks back, we opined that it couldn't get worse? It has. Another 1 run loss to a team that defines mediocrity, the Chicago Cubs, decade in a decade out. Today's lineup featured a trio of Giant cast-offs, among them Nate Schierholtz, who hit a solo home run, in the NINTH FUCKING INNING to win 1 - 0 today.
No offense for the Giants. None. Chances - RISP in the 5th, 6th and 7th. No runs scored. Then, in the 8th, there were bases LOADED with NO outs. Did the Giants score? They did not. In the 9th, there were bases LOADED and ONE out. How would a double play work to make the game suck in totality? In the words of Duane Kuiper - "Unbelievable!" If there is any, tiny upside to this, it is that we are not likely to make a move to hope to boost the Giants into the playoffs. Because they need soooo much more than a boost.
