Some people can see the glass as half full.
Others see it as half empty.
And others see it not only empty but shattered on the floor.
After a dreadful 2 weeks, the Giants went into Milwaukee demoralized... and then did nothing short of pulverizing the Brewers.
They didn't just win. They swept a 4 game series... On the Road... by scores of 6-1, 6-1, 15-2 and 9-3.
It was a 4 game winning streak that was just what the doctor ordered. They are just 5 games in back of San Diego and they have kept pace with the surging Dodgers and Rockies.
Naturally I called my dad, the biggest Giants fan I know, to talk about his team's good fortune.
"Your guys looked good today."
"Ahhh, Zito didn't. He was so wild that he couldn't even finish the 5th inning."
"But you scored 9 runs... in fact your bats went berzerk."
"We could have used some of those runs against Colorado."
"But after all of this you are still within 5 games of an overachieving San Diego team, a Dodgers team that can't make a big trade and a Rockies team that has been up and down."
"Ah we blew it."
Let's hope the Giants can keep their winning ways against Washington.
Maybe an 8 game winning streak will get my dad excited.
