The Giants continue to do nothing noteworthy, unable to win they score lots of runs, or when they allow few. After last night’s extra-inning loss to the Braves, the team sits a disturbing 16 games under .500, and appears prepared to ride out the season in the vain hope that they could either win 7 or 8 games in a row and steal the West, or the teams above them will lose that many and they’d make the postseason with an abysmal 70-92 record or something like it.
Meanwhile, the only Giants news worth mentioning nationwide is the absurd flap over Larry Kreuger’s diatribe. I’m not here to apologize for Kreuger, but for crying out loud, firing him? That’s the only answer? I’ve written some things here that stray far outside the boundaries of propriety, sometimes you do in an effort to express the unexpressable. I’m sure that Kreuger was finding himself unable to put into words how disgusting, how stupid, unprepared, ineffective, weak, flat and disappointing the Giants have been this season. So he said some things that were in bad taste. Fire him?
Not to mention the constant media drumbeat reminding us how terrible it is to say such horrible things. Yeah, I need to know what Joe Morgan, Peter Gammons and all the rest of these jokers think about Kreuger’s horrible faux pas.
Well, at least the Giants are in the national news, right Mr. Magowan. The only bad publicity is no publicity.
