The Future is Bright–But the Present is Awesome

The Future is Bright–But the Present is Awesome

One. Hundred. Wins. 100 WINS!!! I hopped around Twitter last night, saving various versions of a "100 Wins" graphic. I saw at least 4-5 different ones. One of them had Kris Bryant as the center photo, and I mean--we all love KB so far, but--c'mon, the one I put up top is the one it had to be. Buster and the Brandons. Not long after the Giants finished off their 100th win in Colorado, the Eugene...

Decisions, Decisions

Decisions, Decisions

I've always been fascinated by decision-making. In specific situations, I like thinking about "Well, what if 'X' had/had not happened? How would this have turned out differently?" You know, like in the "Back to the Future" movies or even "It's a Wonderful Life." One...

Baseball pundits have long referred to August as the "dog days" of the long season.  (If you're curious about origin of the expression "dog days," as I was, you can read about it here in the Farmer's Almanac. Spoiler: it's related to astronomy, not actual dogs.) It's...

Bryant the Giant

We waited and waited and waited and waited. We saw Starling Marte go off the board and Brad Hand and Craig Kimbrel and Joey Gallo and Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez and Jose Berrios and then, worst of all, BOTH Max Scherzer and Trea Turner go to the $^%# Dodgers. The...

A Big Week Ahead

A Big Week Ahead

Ugh. Greek Giant gets to write about the two thrilling ninth-inning comeback wins, and I get a lackluster sloppy loss to a last-place team. Added to their poor performance in Pittsburgh in May, the Giants are now 2-3 against the lowly Bucs and need to win both games...
