Well…. It’s hard to say. We’re in last place, we’re the worst offense in the game, we play pretty shitty defense…. In many ways, we’re bad.
On the other hand, we’ve got 8 wins in the first 19 games, and Tim Lincecum has been simply outstanding. Some of the other pitchers have been pretty damn good as well, Yabu, Valdez, Wilson, Walker, Taschner…. so, we’ve thrown the ball pretty well.
On the pitching front, I’d like to mention that it’s possible that Lowry’s injury is really bad, like, even career-threatening bad. You don’t hear that too often, but it needs to be considered. The injury itself seems like nothing, except it’s not. Anytime you have an injury to your pitching arm, and it turns out to be one that almost no one’s ever had, and then you start suffering setbacks…. well, it ain’t good, that’s for sure.
And then there’s Bowker. What a start, what a find. Can he continue? Unknown, at this point. But, at this point, he’s the best we’ve got. Here’s hoping.
