I distinctly remember writing a blog post called 10 Possible Reasons People Walk Off Against the Giants So Much last June. It’s May 9th and karma is proving that it exists and if you haven’t been to the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, go right now. There’s lots of fabulous stuff about karma in addition to which it’s a completely lovely museum and they have a glass elevator and stuff. So, seriously. Go.
Back to the point: an uncomfortable number of people walked off against the Giants last June or thereabouts. (I’m trusting my blog on this one. I have the memory of goldfish and can’t distinctly remember much of anything about last June. But still.) So now here it is, May 2013 and the Giants have turned that on its head and walked off about a million times so far this season. 5, to be exact.
Not bad, eh?
There’s a lot of panic – not the neon hairdye manic kind, get your mind out of the hipster gutter – about the starting pitching because it hasn’t been that good at all. But I mean, while there’s Hunter Pence and hopefully more of his kind on whatever alien planet he came from who are just waiting for the right alignment of the stars to come down to earth and help us, things should be okay.
Speaking of more Hunter Pences, was I the only person who was dead convinced that Chewbecca was the only/last of his kind until all the wookiees appeared… at some point in the series? (Er, can’t say I remember when that is, exactly.) Anyway, I like to think Hunter Pence is the same way. We’re all resigned to the fact he’s the only one and then in the nick of time a whole bunch of them descend.
Well, that’s probably enough for now. If I missed some important news, apologies, but there are like thousands of little baseball sites here on the internet so we’ll probably all survive.
