A few days ago I opined that I would like to see the Giants end the season with a better record than the Padres and the Rockies. I doubt that will happen, as we waste chance after chance to control our own destiny. It's the fucking Rockies, for Chrissake.
Madison Bumgarner picked up another loss. He soon will be a .500 pitcher. He did not throw deeply into the game. In sickeningly repetitive fashion, however, it would not have made a damn bit of difference. The Giants did not hit Jhoulys Chacin, who cannot possibly be spelling his own first name correctly, until the 7th inning. He reportedly was pitching with a fever, but the Giants were so fucking weak, he could have been comatose on the mound and still won.
Rarer than a no-hitter in Curs is a no-hitter that allows a run. In the 4th, a walk, error and double play gave the Giants a run. Not like they hit the ball or anything. Know what else is rare? A World Series Champion ending the following season in last place. It has been done once, by the Marlins, and they TRIED to finish last.
