Hey Giants... there are no ugly wins. Only wins
How about THIS for looking at the glass as half full for the Giants? This weekend, a three game series where Friday and Saturday's games were a gruesome house of horrors for the Giants that were done in the first inning... the Giants actually GAINED ground on the Padres!
Sure the Giants lost 2 out of 3 to a team that is on pace to lose 98 games... But the Padres got swept! That's a whole game picked up!
And all pessimism aside, the Giants are STILL only 2 back in the loss column of the Phillies for a playoff spot.
SO BUCK UP GIANTS! Yeah today's win isn't going to be available on iTunes as a classic ballgame... but there is no time for style points.
Just win games and make September meaningful.
Don't think of these as ugly wins. Think of them as having a nice personality.
