If one chooses to believe in karma, then (not)Tommy Lasorda’s last post on this blog doomed the Giants to their current plague of injury and suck. Sorry about that.
Vogelsong is out for several more weeks, Pablo is now on the DL with his foot issue and Pagan continues to nurse a sore hammy. What’s more, it seems Scutaro has messed up his left pinky so bad that he can’t straighten it out.
With things seeming to fall apart, the one thing we can take solace in is the knowledge that the Giants are still within striking distance of the division lead having just taken two of three in Arizona. This is a team that hasn’t hit its stride yet this season, if they can get things together at some point in the remaining year they could once again be looking at a World Series run.
As it stands, however, I’d be happy enough if they can get through this road trip without any more starters going down with injury.
