Baseball God's Shining Down On San Francisco Giants
So this is what it feels like to have the best team with the best record (36-19) in major league baseball. Blissful!
My San Francisco Giants have won four games straight, winning eight of their last ten. They're playing winning baseball and dare I say they look like a powerhouse team? They can shutout a team just as easily as beating them in extra innings. They've got some big bats, shutdown pitchers and gold glove infielders. Manager Bruce Bochy is pulling the right strings at the right time, getting the most out of every roster spot.
Injuries to major parts has not stopped this team from performing with precision and purpose. They play hard yet relaxed with a skill that seems just a step above the rest. At first I thought, "geesh, the Giants are having a lucky year, getting all the breaks." But then I realized luck was a very small part of their early season success. The boys in orange and black are simply playing their butts off, hungry for another taste of this decade's even years championship pie (2010, 2012).
The Giants and their fans these days are just groovin' on a baseball afternoon, feelin no pain. Just continue to win series boys, that's been my motto from the start, win series. Its an odd feeling, to be able to look a loss squarely in the mug and shrug it off without a second thought.
That my friends is what having a dominant team does to a fan. The Giants have replaced torture baseball with tape measure home runs and eye-popping double plays. And they're making it look like just another fun day at the amusement park.
In the infamous words of Ferris Buehler,
"Ferris: Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
I don't plan to miss any of this wonderful SF Giants baseball season. It feels too too good rooting for a juggernaut as it mows down opponents. Every fan should know this feeling at least once. May the baseball God's continue to smile down on us.
