Meh Tim

In one of the limpest performances of the year, the slumping Giants never really seemed to have a chance tonight and Arizona won easily,  4-1.  One lousy run in that ballpark against a weak starter that had nothing.  Sure, we got a run in the first but this one was quickly out of reach. One month ago, we won this kind of game. Now, we got nothing.  Which team are we?

Start #15  Loss  (5-5, 4.90)   6 innings  7 hits  4 runs  4 earned  1 walks  1 strikeouts  0 hr

Not much to analyze, really. Low strike out total. That's probably bad. Too much Goldschmidt. What's new?  Not a disaster, especially considering the ball park.  He had to be God Tim to stop this streak, though.  That just doesn't happen very often any more.

Thanks to this continued onslaught of crap play, we now have a WEENIE THREE GAME lead! Shit! Oh well, it is better than a poke in the eye with a blunt stick.

The blue scum blew a save to the puds, so I guess our lead is still 4 games. That is definitely better than a poke in the eye with a blunt stick.

I can't take it anymore. I think we're finally seeing the real Giants now. The first 2 months were all smoke and mirrors, or something. I don't get it.

Well, it probably wasn't all smoke and mirrors. The crazy home run numbers had to dry up, no surprise there. But the rest of the offense, assuming Pagan ever comes back, should be pretty good. What is terrifying me now is the pitching. We should NEVER have long streaks due to our pitching depth. But no one is stepping up! MadBum and Cain must be STARS and they are not close. If the pitching does well in the next rotation, this bleeding will stop.
Remember, it is still a long haul. We will define which team we are in the next month

Wow, looking back on the last week is rather amazing. I don't know if I can remember a worse one. It all started with the Romo/Pagan meltdown 5 run ninth. Wow.
This is happening at a good time. There is time to regroup and grind it out. We just have to be there at the end.

Yup. Get the shit out now. Re-group. Get back on the horse. These guys are pros, and veterans, and know what it takes. I thought they were a good team before they had the best record and I still think they are a good team.
