Be honest Dodger fans, you don't love the makeup of this team and you are waiting for them to meltdown. You know it's coming you just don't know when. You probably will leave this series in first place and you will probably win the division but which team do you think has a better chance of winning the world series? Our team is hot and has a knack for outperforming its talent level when it counts.

All us Giants fans are looking forward to the end of the season, can you all say the same?

Agree completely with one exception - our talent level this year is pretty high. We have a murderers row going from 1-8. When Bumgarner is hitting, its 1-9.

As I said last night, that was your best chance. No doubt we leave in first place. Tomorrow will be a pleasure. Even got a crying towel for you, NYC!


Your last prediction went so well for you:

Quote:

Anyone care to guess the over under as to when the boys in blue will open up a double digit lead? My guess is August 18.

And if Brandon Belt comes back healthy we could have a pretty nice-looking roster. Not something I thought was possible last month, but Joe Panik and Andrew Susac have surprisingly become competent Major League hitters.

I still don't know how Sabean manages to patch together such decent rosters out of spare parts, but he's done it often enough that it's probably a skill.

The fact that Peavy and Petit are 2 of our better starters is pretty amazing. Never would have guessed that Huddy, Peavy and Petit would be 3 of the top 4 starters on a contending team this season. I think we have some decent offensive pieces but we don't have guys that jump out as stars, other than Posey, and possibly Pence/Sandoval depending on how hot they are. The dodgers have more guys who are considered "stars" but they haven't outperformed our guys this season. Puig has 13 hrs which is only 2 more than Belt in about 2.5x as many atbats and fewer than Morse. Maybe talent wasn't the right word but star power.

All true. Despite having won two of the last four WS, having the most passionate fanbase in BB and one of the best teams in the NL, the Giants continue to be under appreciated and it's players overlooked.

C'mon guys. Be humble. We do best when we don't anger the woofing gods.

Let the southerners be the cocky ones.

Don't worry. We just need to anger the woofing gods slightly less than the other side.

Well whaddayaknow... 11-0...5th inning. Boys in Blue. Must be all that lack of humility from the Gigantes fans.

Kershaw pitches tomorrow.

I hope the dodgers score 25 tonight. Get it out of their system.

Kershaw usually can win on 1 run...so bring it!

No.

I'm thinking Dodgers win big and shut up the pansies from NorCal (for a day, at least), SC loses and then I get $1,600 on the ASU vs. Colorado game.

I'm pretty sure I liked last night better. I'm more into subtlety, I guess.

Plenty of reason for optimism if you're a Giants fan though. You did tie the last 2 innings.

Sorry, I thought you could read subtlety - you predicted the Dodgers would be up 10 games or more in mid-August. It's now mid-September and the diminishing lead is 2 games.
