    my pat comment to the final weekend of the '93 season:
    as great as i felt on saturday, that's how horrible i felt on sunday.

    i had tix to that one-game, do-or-die, winner-take-division crown, would-be play-off game... the one that ended up not needing to be played. that season *still* churns my stomach waaaaay more than did the 2002 season ending.
    I hated the Rockies for years for going 0-13 W-L against the Braves in 1993. Seriously, you Rockies couldn't beat the Braves even one time in 1993?! And the Giants lost the final home game (Will CLark's final home game as a Giant) to the Rockies! Ugh.

    Perhaps the greatest and most disappointing Giants season ever, until perhaps 2002. For veteran Giants fans those five straight second place finishes from 1965-69 must have been really frustrating as well!

    So the Giants ended up with a 94-68 W-L (.580) record for 2012. This is the 7th best W-L record in San Francisco Giants history. Top 10.

    1. 1993 103-59 (.636)
    2. 1962 103-62 (.624)
    3. 2003 100-61 (.621)
    4. 2000 97-65 (.599)
    5. 2002 95-66 (.590)
    6. 1965 95-67 (.586)
    7. 2012 94-68 (.580)
    8. 1966 93-68 (.578)
    9. 1989 92-70 (.568)
    10. 2010 92-70 (.568)

    The 1965, 1966, and 1993 teams didn't make the postseason.

    That was a great Giants comeback yesterday. The Giants are sharp and ready to go for the playoffs.

    Of Course we know Petco park is an extreme pitchers park

    but today

    1) The Padres hit 3 HR off Tim Lincecum there

    2) then in the top of the 9th and the Padres leading 5-4, Padre closer Huston Street entered the game, he has been injured much of the year but he entered the game with 38 IP and just 14 hits allowed and zero home runs and was 23/23 in save opportunities. Then Xavier Nady lit him up for a solo home run, the first home run hit off him this year and his first blown save and two batters later Hunter Pence smashed a two run dinger hanging him with the loss. Nady's homer was his first as a Giant and poetically the 100th for the team this year.

    melky is not going to play in the PS:

    probably the team wanted to avoid to much media attention since that might distract the other players.

    wow, Zito goes 6ip today for his 14(!)th win! He's got to be about the best 5th starter in mlb.

    And Marco Scutaro has to be about the best mid-season pickup. What a season he's having.

    now I wonder if I'm going to have to redo MY math.
    Sadly, it sure seems that way.
    I love it when I'm wrong like that- I couldn't be happier that they clinched the division.

    I am ready to eat humble pie whenever anyone would like- it'll never taste so good.

    I can hardly wait for the postseason and next year- the Giants come back to New York for interleague at New Yankee Stadium- right after their series with the Mets.

    Six games in a row for the Giants in New York? Seems like old times...

    it seems that the giants are gonna carry all five of their starters into the divisional playoffs... with one of the five being delegated to the bull pen.

    who do ya think it'll be?
    Cain
    Bumgarner
    Lincecum
    Vogelsong
    Zito

    You beat me to it west coast! Until last night Timmy had been quite solid since the All Star break. He probably has one more full start left.
