Well, I already made the "Looks Like I Picked The Wrong Week To Quit..." joke from Airplane.
But I can honestly say right now the Giants need Willie Mays... NOW... at age 79...
He could easily hit 6th on this Giants team.
They've gone into Wrigley Field and scored a run.
If Buster Posey's flyball doesn't clear the wall last night they would have been shut out two straight nights.
Want a scary stat?
In the Giants last 13 games they have scored 38 runs.
That's just under 3 runs a game. Not good for a pennant contender.
Want some scarier numbers?
Those 38 runs INCLUDES the 7 run outburst on September 9th, the 6 run game on September 12th, the 10 run game on September 16th and the 9 run game on Sunday the 19th.
So 32 of the 38 runs were scored in those 4 games.
Ready for some scary division?
In 9 critical "can't really afford to drop a game" stretch run games, the Giants scored a total of 6 runs.
Not per game.
This September they have lost 6 games where they have held the opposition to 3 runs or fewer.
Chew on that as they fall out of the playoff picture for at least a day and head to Colorado after tomorrow's game.
Bumgarner is on the mound. Hopefully the Giants can have one of their fluke offensive outbursts.
