Hasn’t this season sucked enough? Hasn’t the parade of injuries and nose-dives at the plate been sufficient?
Now they have to blow a heartbreaker… to the goddamn Dodgers?
I’m not going to give up on the team, because that’s just lame and you know damn well that no matter how terrible the last two weeks of the season are, come late January you’ll look back and they’ll seem as fond as your first trip to Disneyland. But hell, at this point I wouldn’t blame them if they wanted to mail in the rest of the schedule.
This has been a brutal year. Yes, they still have one of the better records, but can you really think of any team that has suffered more this year? The bad teams knew they were going to be bad. The rebuilding teams knew they were going to see players come and go. But hell, other than Ryan Vogelsong there just hasn’t been much in the way of good news for the Giants this year.
On the other hand, next spring is going to be glorious. Guys will be healthy, the rookies will be that much closer to taking everyday jobs, and, best of all…BUSTER! That first time we see Posey penciled into the cleanup spot will be a total sportsboner. Seeing Sanchez in the two spot definitely won’t hurt either, especially if there’s a “Beltran” or “Rollins”in between the two.
But in the meantime, let’s at least salvage some pride here and beat the fucking dodgers.
