It is possible that the
Giants simply aren’t good enough.
That their Pythagarean record was not going to be different then their actual.
That they would not be the team who did something most teams did not, win more then their runs scored/runs allowed differential said they should.
After today, anything is possible.
So much for the Giants being in the Phillies heads. The Phillies are delivering their own statement, as the Giants slump at the worst possible time. Continued offensive stagnation, Carlos Beltran watching strike three instead of swinging at a clearly borderline pitch, Jonathan Sanchez continuing the latest run of pretty shitty pitching by pretty much everyone on the staff…..
All in all, the deadline deals appear to have done more harm than good. It seems that the deals have caused everyone to press even harder, and with guys like
Ross, Torres and Huff, hitting with men on base has become a legitimate nightmare.
They need to turn things around right now, because the season could spiral out of control any minute now. Somebody has to start hitting the baseball out of the park. Simple as that.
Oh, and that umpire was squeezing Sanchez tonight, just as much as the umpire last night gave Lee about ten different calls against us.
…. Fresh off a series of deadline deals meant to bolster the offense, the Giants pitching staff has completely spit the bit, en route to s season-high 5 game losing streak that has the Diamondbacks tied for first in the NL West. What a truly pathetic response to the efforts of Brian Sabean; who put his time, effort, and the future prospects of the team on the line. And, you bet the pitching has struggled, but Beltran has been a joke so far, with more strikeouts than hits. Cabrera seriously looks as old as Tejada, and Keppinger has been wasting his
time hitting double after double only to sit on second base watching the endless flail-fest.
The league is ready for the Giants pitchers approach. Adjust, Rags.
Oh, and by the way, when does Meulens get some heat? Every hitter on the team is failing right now. Every. One.
All. Season. Long.
