…. Countdown to Armageddon

I’m sorry, but this is just delusional.

…. General manager Brian Sabean was asked Sunday if he ever saw this coming.

“In a word,” he said, “no.”

“It was unforeseen, and a lot of stuff that happened couldn’t be predicted, inside or outside the organization. We’re kind of at a loss at how things spun out of control. Injuries are part of the game, the severity of which you have to deal with. Some things didn’t happen with expectations, including the pitching staff and starting staff, that we’re still scratching our heads about.”

I mean, the entire online baseball community, with the exception of a few dedicated Giants sites, predicted that the Giants would have a very tough time staying healthy with such an old lineup. For crying out loud, Bill James wrote about this stuff twenty years ago! For Sabean to sit there and say that he and his crack team of baseball experts had no idea that they could be hit with an epidemic of injuries is absurd, and suggests a long rebuilding process, as the article also hints that should the Giants put together any kind of win streak, they would be willing to trade youth for veterans yet again.
