…. Crumbling blue?

The Giants came within one bad call of sweeping the four-game set from the completely hapless Dodgers. Instead, they settled for winning a rare road series on the combination of Brad Hennessey stingy pitching and Michael Tucker’s hot bat. Last night’s 4-1 win, coupled with the Padres loss, leaves the G-men 8 games back in the loss column, 11 games under .500.

The Dodgers looked lifeless all weekend, and the Giants were happy they stayed that way. Now the Giants get to face real baseball teams, the Marlins and tthe Braves, for a six-game homestand that will decide the season. Anything short of 5 wins will probably signal the death knell on the 2005 campaign, and Sabean will begin clearing out all the dead weight on the roster in preparation for 2006.

Part of me still wishes the team would rally, but the roster is so screwed up that the realist in me wants to see them face facts and begin the process of rebuilding, especially the pitching staff.

And let’s stop with the “Barry Bonds met with his teammates” stories already. He’s coming back or not depending on whether this group of chumps can get within sniffing distance of the playoffs. Enough with the tease.
