  • San Francisco Giants - Blown Leads

    Hey there Gang,

    One of the things that I've always been curious about is the matter of blown leads.

    Blown leads are primarily attributable to the pitching, but can also be exacerbated by shoddy defense too.

    The San Francisco Giants have blown 25 leads so far this season, with their largest lead lost being 7 runs.

    John Miller on Friday night's KNBR radio broadcast was talking about blown leads himself, and never mentioned what was the largest lead ever blown by the San Francisco Giants.

    So I decided to create an excel spreadsheet to answer that question as well as show the history of the blown lead in regards to the San Francisco Giants.

    I think you'll find this to be a very interesting look at one of the dark undersides of the Giants 2008 season, as well as their history of 50+ seasons playing in San Francisco.

    How's this for irony, while I was compiling this I was also watching the Giants play the Dodgers in Los Angeles, and they gave back 5 runs of a 7-0 lead in the 5th inning!!

    interesting numbers, bbb. many thanx for sharing your detailed work
    so far this season, the giants have converted 28 of 39 save opportunities.
    percentage-wise (72%) they are 3rd in the league.

    is that you in section 113?

        Good stats. Thanks.
        Blown leads make me sick when it comes too well pitched games like Lincecum is known for throwing...
        Go Gigantes!
