Didn’t somebody try to tell me the Giants had the best starting pitching in baseball?
UPDATE: As far as being utterly and completely vindicated, I guess tonight’s disgrace to humanity would pretty much handle that, no? Noah Lowry gave up 9 hits and 9 earned runs while recording but 4 outs. Yeah, and if that’s not bad enough, he was handed a 3-0 lead before he took the mound. Not only was this the fourth consecutive embarassing performance by a starting pitcher for this dismal, repulsive, unwatchable, pathetic collection of talent; but it was also a game in which the hitters came out of the gate and put the team in prime position to end the recent slide. So much for that.
Oh, and by the way, Frank, to suggest that the players on this team have somehow let San Francisco down is beyond absurd. It is provably, patently, clearly, and unequivocally wrong, inaccurate, false…. I can hardly get through the thesarus fast enough for this piece. This is a team of misfits, castoffs, has-beens and never-was’s who have performed exactly as expected, exactly as predicted. Only an idiot could come to the conclusion that this team has under-performed. There is not one player on this team who could have reasonably been expected to be any better than they have been. Not one. Give me a break.
The blame for this sham of a season falls on Sabean and Magowan, for taking the concept of building a veteran team to its absurd conclusion.
