I am. Tonight is the game of the year. After last night’s win, (a simply outstanding start by Zito, maybe the best he’s had in a Giants uniform), the Giants can close the gap to one game in the AILC (all important loss column). Matt Cain looks to reverse his recent trend of being just a little bit too hittable with men on, and the hitters hope to continue their recent trend of actually hitting.
All in all, if it’s a tease, so be it. Terrific rebound from some really bad baseball, some really bad luck, and some really bad situations. A lot to be desired from the team this year for sure, but, who’d a thunk we’d be seeing the Giants in this position with 17 games left? Not me, that’s for sure.
Let’s go Giants!
UPDATE: Nice tease. Shitty outing by Cain (pretty much exactly what I was worried about), lousy hitting by pretty much everyone, 4-0 Rockies in the seventh. And it’s just great listening to Krukow talk about how great De La Rosa pitched, as opposed to how fucking lousy the Giants hitters were.
