Giants drop game, series to Cubs

Jeff Samardzija was pretty okay, but this lineup needs more than pretty okay to win.

The Giants lost the game. They lost the series. They looked bad doing it. And I want to unpack this tweet just a little bit because it explains nearly everything:

It’s not an excuse, per se, but it makes a lot more sense — and is a lot less freaky — than mystery soreness in the elbow and shoulder. It’s probably directly related to the time he missed in spring training, if I’m playing amateur digitologist.

That doesn’t mean that blisters aren’t nagging, pernicious monsters. Rich Hill can’t stop missing time because of them. But if you’re asking me to choose between a pitcher saying, “I can’t feel my thumb and my elbow is making this high-pitched humming sound that makes it so that I can’t be in the same room as a dog” and “ayup, blisters,” I’ll choose the blisters.

At least all of the three home runs were solo home runs. Now you know what that feels like, suckers!

It probably feels pretty good, just like last night. Oh, well. Down the hatch.
