The Giants made a big decision Friday. They decided to finish the season with less than 100 losses. Good choice.
Oh, don’t get me wrong. They’re still bringing up the rear. If all goes the same, they will have the first draft pick, they are tied with Detroit, and followed by Philadelphia and the Chicago White Sox. I’ll let you know how it all shakes out. The last time the Giants came close to a No. 1 pick was in 1985, they had the second pick overall and used it to pick up some guy named Will Clark, aka “Will the Thrill.” Not a bad choice, right?
Our last Orange Friday of the 2017 season was a game reminiscent of our WS Champs—pick a season—they looked and acted like the teams who, like the Goonies, never say die. Never when they are in the postseason, anyway.
They had their hitting shoes on. 17 hits in all. Buster Posey and Brandon Crawford tied with three RBI’s each. Pablo Sandoval and Joe Panik had one RBI a piece. They were playing like Gold Glovers–which makes sense because a couple of them are–they turned a nice double play and made a couple of tough outs.
The final score was: Giants 8, Padres 0
On a personal note, My husband and I celebrated our 38th anniversary. Tempus fugit.
Thank you Giants for a great anniversary.
Happy Anniversary Anthony!
