This is so f*cking stupid.
Seriously. HOW MANY ONE RUN GAMES CAN THEY LOSE?
I’m tired of hearing about how they need Cespedes. I’m tired of saying how a bounce here and a bounce there and this would be a 5 game winning streak! I’m tired of wasted pitching performances and blown leads!
Another 1-0 loss. Another game where 1 run was insurmountable! Come on! I have people asking me is this the worst collapse I have ever seen.
(It isn’t even the worst collapse of 2014! That belongs to the Brewers so far.)
But this is so dumb and tiring and boring that I don’t even want to write about it. Win some games! I don’t care how. Win by a lot or win by a little.
Despite all this crap, they’d still host the Wild Card Game. You have 17 games to find out how to score about 2 more runs a game and shut the whole “It was a mistake to deal Cespedes narrative” up.
I guess I should update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.
An explanation of what this is all about can be found HERE.
GIANTS DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
54 Dodged Bullets 48 Teeth Grinders
A’S DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
Scott Kazmir pitched brilliantly, allowing just 1 run over 8 innings. But that was 1 run too many as Chris Sale and the White Sox shut down the A’s 1-0. TEETH GRINDER
50 Dodged Bullets 52 Teeth Grinders
RED SOX DODGED BULLET – TEETH GRINDER Tally
Clay Buchholz pitched another solid start for the Red Sox and Jemile Weeks drove home a pair of insurance runs to secure a 6-3 win over the Royals. DODGED BULLET
Dodged Bullets 61 Teeth Grinders 74
Giants play the Dodgers starting tonight. If the Giants sweep, they will be in first place by themselves.
I’m just saying.
