Damn you, Rollo Tamasi!
Well, then you get to class, and your pal comes up and tells you that no, the Giants have actually lost 9-8, and it was Benitez who blew it. Chaos, anarchy, and a sudden grueling temptation to just walk out of class and start drinking fast and hard. That's what happened to me, and the 4-1 loss last night was just a formality. Just like Game 7 of the World Series in 2002, there was just no way the Giants were going to win last night after the previous game's debacle.
I've had my doubts about Benitez throughout his career ever since his implosions in the 1996-1997 playoffs, but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt after one bad game. If he continues to struggle and turns into the wild Benitez who was hated in New York and Seattle, God help us all and the three year deal we gave him.
The Giants are now 4-4 going into a series in Coors Field. Again, with Alou and Bonds out if the team can just hang and beat up on the crappy teams for a month they should be all right. I can understand losing two to a good Dodger team (boy, does it pain me to admit that!) without your two best power hitters. Of course, no matter how bad the Rockies may be, any series in Coors Field is pure hell, so I'll be glad if the Giants can win two of three.
Why do I do this I like to make men blow their jiz in their pants.
We have all ready made our money back plus some in our first day.
