Probably Not Going To Win The West…Wild Card?

The Giants are on a big road trip right now. They aren’t playing great teams, but they do need to prove that they can win on the road. The Giants swept the Braves at home. Then took 2 out of 3 from the Cardinals. Now on this road trip they have took 2 out of 3 from the
 
Nationals. Where Randy Johnson also got his 300 win. They are now finishing up a 4 game series against the Marlins in Florida. The Giants have taken 2 out of the first 3 games. Johnson is pitching on short rest today to try to get the series win for the Giants. The Giants are currently 4-2 on this road trip. After the game tonight. The Giants will be flying back to the West Coast to Arizona to play a 3 game series with the D-Backs.
 
Ohhhhkay now I’m looking at the Dodgers as a baseball fan and not just a Giants fan. My Giants heart wants to tell me that the Dodgers are going to fall flat on their face and we will catch them. Now my baseball heart tells me the Dodgers my stumble here and there but they will not fall off the mountain all the way back to ground zero. Plus they should have Manny back in a month. That’s only going to help them. The Giants only shot this season is more than likely going to be the Wild Card. They will have to battle with some good teams, but it can be done with the pitching that the Giants have. We are all still waiting for Sabean to get that bat or two that we need to help us score more runs.

    hey, sorry for the random post…..I’m making the rounds on the mlb blogs to tell people about a new website for Ballhawks,

    http://www.myGameBalls.com

    You can create a profile, upload pictures, and record balls that you snagged at baseball games. It automatically updates your stats and has top-10 rankings for the current season and lifetime.

    I was doing some light number crunching over at my site this morning. Over the last 20 games the Giants haven’t gained a single game. No NLW team has gained a single game on the Dodgers somehow in the last 20 despite the Dodgers softening up at home in a big way. But with over 100 games left for either team it’s anybody’s division.

    Dodgers and Giants both in the playoffs? I was thinking one day and I realized that the Dodgers and Giants have never met in an NLCS. It just wasn’t possible until the wildcard and has yet to happen with it. That would be pretty intense for the rivalry, right?
