OK this is absurd!
Brad Penny is 3-0?
Brad Penny has a 1.64 ERA with the Giants?
Did Brad Penny just save the Giants season?
It sure looks like he did.
Well, now there is no wiggle room.
There is no room for error.
The Giants need to win tomorrow with Lincecum on the mound against the Rockies.
Then they have to win on Tuesday against the Rockies.
Then they have to win on Wednesday against the Rockies.
A sweep of the Rockies would put the Giants 1 back in the loss column with 16 games to play.
Taking 2 out of 3 would put the Giants 3 back in the loss column with 16 games to play with no remaining head to head games with the Rockies.
One loss will more than likely sink the team in this series.
And then I am sure Brad Penny will have another chance to save the day.
