Found July 03, 2013 on SF Lunatic Fringe:
Okay, maybe this isn’t as far as a team could sink…  Sure, the Giants aren’t in contention for the number 1 overall pick in the draft next year. They’re only 3 games back in what I will gently call a competitive division. They are mostly the same team that won a World Series last year, albeit with a couple of injury problems.  More, it’s a lot of players playing under the level they can. But somebody needs to figure out how to light them up. Because the combination of being no-hit, falling behind the Dodgers, and falling into last place all on the same day is pretty damn depressing. Also, good job to Homer Bailey.  Hell of a game. And, clearly, Gregor Blanco is the judge of whether Perfect Games live or die, and he rules in the top of the seventh with nobody out.

His 111 innings pitched lead Cincinnati, and is good for 16th in baseball. His 2.67 xFIP is sixth among all qualified...
