Sorry for the delay in writing about the end of the season. I was literally speechless at how the last two days unfolded. A promising season fell apart in the span of about twenty pitches, not unlike that fateful day two years ago, when I wrote:
The Giants suffered perhaps the the most disheartening and distressing loss in the history of baseball tonight, losing 6-5 to the Anaheim Angels, who became the first team in the history of the game to win an elimination game of any kind after trailing by five runs or more.
That about sums it up, no? The Dodgers rallied from a 5-0, ninth-inning deficit against the Rockies a week ago, and then pulled another rabbit out of their hat by coming up with 7 runs to ruin our season.
Magowan’s in the Chronicle saying they’ll rebound, but makes sure we know that we ain’t gonna get a big-time free agent of any kind. Thanks, Peter, for letting me know that I’m in for the same kind of torture next year.
