Admit it, you were worried after that Dodgers series.
The Dodgers are way too close, and there’s a dash of fear…or more…that the offense was just the result of being in Coors and facing the Rockies’ pitchers. But damn, that sort of offense does feel a bit good.
Not that I’m turning my back on AT&T Park…or thinking about bringing in the fences…or doing anything to boost the offense. I like the tight games when I attend. Usually the blowouts, even the rare ones by the Giants, have a tendency to bore me. I think the only time I wasn’t was Game 2 of the World Series. And that really wasn’t a blowout until the Rangers bullpen imploded like an original Vegas casino.
But, geeze, the Giants needed the offense. Hopefully, this continues in a crucial meeting in St. Louis with the Dodgers nipping at the Giants’ heels.
