A week ago I reported that my dad thought the Giants still had a shot...
I figured out it would take a great Giants run, a Diamonbacks flop and the Padres, Dodgers and Rockies playing mediocre ball.
Well, look what's happened since!
They have gone on a 5 game winning streak!
They've won 10 of their last 12.
In fact if the Giants held onto a 1-0 9th inning lead last Tuesday and won an extra inning game the next day... the Giants would have won 12 straight!
Neither the Padres, Rockies nor Dodgers have had an overwhelming week and the D'Backs have been hovering at .500.
He witnessed the 1951 comeback!
Maybe I should listen to my dad!
Clearly my kids are listening to him.
A few odds and ends from an eventual trade deadline
