Because they are the best team in MLB and no one saw this coming this year

lol, that was supposed to be 2021 Giants but i'm drunk as i met up with old friends tonight

Bee OK, Wednesday, 4 August 2021 06:55 (one month ago) link

anyways, the Giants lost to Bumgarner tonight because of course they did

the Dodgers also lost, so today was just another day but they are running out. nothing gained but also nothing lost

Bee OK, Wednesday, 4 August 2021 06:59 (one month ago) link

but they are running out *of time

Bee OK, Wednesday, 4 August 2021 07:01 (one month ago) link

this team is magic this year.

they were down four going into the 9th inning. D-backs removed their starting pitcher who was dominating and the Giants came back to win. oh yeah, someone named Kris Bryant starting the came back and scored the extra run in the 10th to win it.

Bee OK, Friday, 6 August 2021 01:55 (one month ago) link

I don’t understand how this team is doing it.

FRAUDULENT STEAKS (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Friday, 6 August 2021 04:04 (one month ago) link

They were already halfway there last year, with a lineup hitting the snot out of the ball in the shortened season but lacked pitching/bullpen depth and Buster Posey.

Also, plate discipline. So much plate discipline.

there is something special going on this year

the Giants are playing the Brewers and they have faced some of the best pitchers i have seen this year: Burnes, Woodruff and their bullpen. Giants were down by one in the ninth and somehow tied the score (it was unbelievable). in the 10th they scored three runs but the Brewers came back and scored three runs to tie the score, it was a gut punch but this is 2021. in the 11th the Giants scored four runs to finally end the game.

Kris Bryant 3-4

Bee OK, Sunday, 8 August 2021 03:41 (one month ago) link

Yeah they are like perma locked in. The defensive flexibility and depth make them like a mesh network team. It's incredibly fun to watch, and it's reminiscent of the EYBS teams postseason play but all year.

octobeard, Sunday, 8 August 2021 06:47 (one month ago) link

wild win tonight vs the diamondbacks

sknybrg, Wednesday, 11 August 2021 05:12 (one month ago) link

i know the dbacks are the cellar dwellers of the division but they play the Giants well. the Giants have had to come back way too many times this year against them this year. i'm actually glad the Giants don't have to play them too many more times this year.

So Crawford's 2/$32M extension is officially the biggest deal Farhan Zaidi has handed out as #SFGiants president of baseball operations.

games are getting more and more intense. not sure why the Mets manager took out Walker but this was not a good game by the Giants. the Giants needs five outs to get out of a bases loaded ninth but they did. i might say this was one of their flatter games but somehow still won.

there is something about this team this year

Kapler is a Greta Van Fleet fan

brimstead, Thursday, 26 August 2021 02:53 (one month ago) link

the Giants probably put the nail in the coffin by sweeping the Mets. tonight they should not have lost but the first pitch got them, they are flat right now.

Bee OK, Saturday, 28 August 2021 05:59 (four weeks ago) link

in other words the season is starting to catch up to them to the naked eye

Bee OK, Saturday, 28 August 2021 06:01 (four weeks ago) link

Webb pitched a gem tonight, the Giants finally played their brand of baseball and had a win over the ATL

every game is becoming bigger and bigger

Bee OK, Sunday, 29 August 2021 05:23 (four weeks ago) link

one of the worst days in my life

after having the best record in baseball and being on top after more than 100 days it all come crashing down tonight

i feel the Giants need to win the division this year and that is more important than winning another World Series. in 2014, the Giants Won the World Series despite not winning the division, the Dodgers reign in the West needs to end and this year felt right

also this Texas, supreme court thing really bothers me

why go on...

There’s still time, you’ve got a month of games and fangraphs puts your playoff odds at 100% (lol)

and no mookie, i pay attention on the down years too and buy Extra Innings every single year, i just took a long break from ILB is all, as see above (too invested).

Sure, our extremely expensive, all-in season is falling apart, but at least we've never won a title

The only thing that would bring me down this year is if the Giants lose to the Dodgers in the postseason and/or the Bums win it all again.

This season is already found money (I mean they sit at 85 wins right now... a total that I would have considered amazing progress if they ended that way). They have a top 10 farm now. Tons of money coming off the books. Possibility of signing Bryant. Proven elite hitting can happen at 24 Willie Mays Plaza without the roids. I can go on. They should be competitive for some time now and the best Faidi years are still ahead. I don't see them pulling off a WS win this year since the starting pitching is completely unreliable outside of Webb, but they could get close.

Padres have had a classic case of "celebrating at half time" a la the Falcons in the Super Bowl and a ton of injuries. They can still sneak in and grab a Wild Card spot though. They remind me a bit of the 2nd half 2016 Giants but with 1000% more hubris. Until they win something that hubris will only hinder them. Perhaps they need to lose more before they truly can pull one out, a la the Dodgers.

octobeard, Friday, 3 September 2021 23:03 (three weeks ago) link

Speaking of - Dodgers are expected to win 100+, expected to win the division, expected to go deep and/or win it all.

Anything short of that is a satisfying dose of schadenfreude.

octobeard, Friday, 3 September 2021 23:06 (three weeks ago) link

what a game tonight, thou the Giants never scored an insurance run as they had to have around 12 chances with running in scoring position. to lose this game would have been heartbreaking.

Bee OK, Saturday, 4 September 2021 06:42 (three weeks ago) link

2 out of three and take the series season versus the Dodgers. that will work.

Bee OK, Monday, 6 September 2021 02:44 (two weeks ago) link

first team to 90 wins and 40 games over .500

first team to sweep the Rockies this year at their park

you can't make this stuff up. Giants cruising and put their closer on the IL today. up comes Rogers and gives up three in the bottom of the ninth. Giants tie it in the bottom of the ninth on their last strike. and then...

2 out of 3 against an Atlanta team that is fighting for their playoff lives, unfortunately the Dodger did the same. still up and in the end of the week and that is all you can hope for at this time of the season.

LaMonte Wade Jr. has now beat the entire NL West in the 9th inning.

7/22 vs Dodgers (tie-breaking two-run single in 5-3 win)

8/5 vs D'backs (game-tying two-run single in 5-4 win)

9/8 vs Rockies (go-ahead two-run single in 7-4 win)

9/21 vs Padres (go-ahead single in 6-5 win)

not sure of the last time the Giants actually gained ground on the Dodgers, might be when the Giants beat Walker Buehler.
