What I don't like is that we have been completely shutdown 2 nights in a row by pitchers with an ERA approaching 5.
Complete games no less.
Hopefully it's just a mini slump.
2 tough roadies ahead.
Good teams generally beat up on the scrub teams and play even with the good teams.So far this year.
4-2 vs. LA3-1 vs. NY Mets2-1 vs. Pit1-1 vs. St. Louis2-4 vs. Cincy4-5 vs. Arizona lost 3 in the beginning of the year but won 2 of 3 twice1-2 vs. Texas & AngelsAbout .500 which is not bad. They are able to play with them.
Just the ludicrousness of this thread though. Let's follow the thread starter's false assertion that we lose all the time to good teams when we are at about .500.Arizona is 2-5 against Atlanta1-2 against NY Mets1-2 against Pittsburgh1-2 against Washington0-3 against St. Louis
They stink against good teams, at least we play .500 against them.
They should just throw in the towel because they can't compete against good teams, nowhere near as good as we do?
If anybody wants to see a team by team grid against other teams, here it is:
Back to complaining about the Beltran trade? Are you ever going to get over this? Maybe you ought to seek some counselling about it.
Also pretty sure the trade was made in an attempt to bolster the offense and make it back to the world series not to put bums on seats as they were selling out every home game and would have continued to do so Beltran or no Beltran.
"These were tough losses...and having lost their momentum..."
I kind of figure they will be going up and down all year. This team has a whole lot of streakies, pitching and hitting....The key is to learn from all the up times so they can get it started in the appropriate time in September.
Giants don't match up as well with cincinnati. But we do fine agains the rest of the leagues good teams. Our starting pitching is superior to just about everyone in the league though. Nobody else can go five deep in quality.
If it comes down to the Giants and reds in the playoffs, we will come out on top because of our pitching depth. Also, we wil punish latos like a red headed step child. When the chips are down he will go down, just like in 2010.
"Cincy's pitchers' ERA is inflated by having to pitch in that bandbox"
Perhaps you can explain this to me then.
