Did you notice the Giants are 9-2 since the All Star Break?
Chances are if you said “Yes” to that, you are my dad.
But for the rest of you… the Giants are suddenly for real and if the playoffs started today, they would be playing the Atlanta Braves in the Division Series.
Now they could probably use another bat, but with Buster Posey making his own case for Rookie of the Year, it might not have to be a huge impact bat.
That being said, as the unpredictable Marlins come to San Francisco, Giants fans need to do something unpleasant:
You need to root for the Dodgers this week.
I know it is hard for you all, but trust me it is for the best.
The Giants are 4 back in the loss column of San Diego and they’ve been winning with smoke and mirrors all season. A nice losing streak by the Friars could land the Giants in first place and the possibility of being on top of the standings is worth a few Dodger wins.
Trust me on this one.
