Bumgarner looks like a complete superstar, throwing his first everything, complete game, shutout, one-hitter.
Wow. The Giants try to make history again today, with Cain looking to see if they can somehow keep this improbable shutout streak going. 36 innings and counting.
UPDATE: Wow. That was fast. Oh well, on to the next streak. I just looked up the rankings of starters in baseball, and the Giants are second in ERA, first in innings pitched, first in total strikeouts and second in runs allowed. So, basically, we’ve got one of the
top rotations in all of baseball right now. Let’s get back into the swing of it tonight.
UPDATE, Part II: Well, let’s hope E isn’t omniscient. Now that the Giants have started playing some of the best teams in the NL, let’s hope they can compete. The Reds have been beating the shit out of them for going on three seasons now, and after tonight, we’re once again talking about how to get past ‘em.
