On the one hand, the Giants blew a beautifully pitched game by Jonathan Sanchez with a ball hit by Carlos Gonzalez that was played with all the grace and skill as one of the chases at the end of The Benny Hill Show.
They've lost 4 of 5 and the wheels seem to be coming off.
On the other hand, they haven't been LOSING much ground. The Padres are on a season high 5 game losing streak. San Diego seems to have been winning with smoke and mirrors all season. What if the law of averages are finally catching up to them? More talented teams have blown a 6 game lead in September. (Did someone page the 2007 Mets?)
Philadelphia is only up by 2 in the loss column for the Wild Card race and there are 30 games left in the Giants season to make up those 2 games.
And it always better to have your lousy stretch in August in September. Maybe the Giants can get it all together.
Go ahead, Giant fans. Describe the glass.
