The Giants are just pounding the ball on this road trip, and after last night’s insane 15-0 shellacking of the Cardinals, they now lead the NL in runs per game on the road, at an unbelievable 5.18. Buster Posey has put himself in the MVP conversatio
n, and soon the Panda returns. Hopefully the team can continue to perform at a high level as they try to hold off the Dodgers and D’backs.
UPDATE: Well, I’m not jumping off or on the Pence bandwagon just yet. Let’s see.
He could have a knack for triples alley, he could go all en fuego for the rest of the season…. Anything’s possible. The Giants didn’t trust Schierholz, and they (among many of us) failed to
see Carlos Beltran’s resurgence (27 home runs and an NL-leading 80 RBI).
Pence seems like a good fit, although as I said earlier, I would have jumped at Hanley Ramirez instead.
