Waking Giants... Pessimistic Dad

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.
