Let’s Hope This Isn’t A Playoff Preview For The Giants

Jake Peavy has gone from the Red Sox to the Giants and still has only one more win than me this year.

The Giants bats were dead again. I know that Wily Peralta is a good pitcher. But this was the Giants lineup with Pagan. Supposedly the one that can hit.

Instead they scratched 1 run and could only get one victory in the series. Two teams with playoff hopes and one team took total control? Not a good omen for the Giants.

Then again, as I type this, the Giants are barely hanging onto a Wild Card spot, just 1/2 a game ahead of Pittsburgh and 3 ahead of Atlanta.

Maybe they should get to the dance first before I think about potential match ups.

Time to update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.

An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
