It's Brian Sabean's fault

He's the guy who has refused to get the Giants the big bats they need to avoid heartbreaking losses like tonight's 2-1 nightmare. He's squandered the available bucks on terrible deals for Barry Zito, Aaron Rowand, Edgar Renteria and Mark DeRosa -- $46 million of this year's payroll.

Henry Schulman's posted a decent story for the SF Chronicle that makes the case that it was just lousy luck tonight -- lots of hard-hit shots that didn't find holes. I don't blame bad luck. I blame Brian Sabean. The Giants got three singles, a double and 4 walks. That's just plain awful.

I also am going to give a little blame to Bruce Bochy for letting Jonathan Sanchez bat for himself in the 8th inning. Look Bruce, he's a guy who has a record of being inconsistent and who's well over 100 pitches. You're TWO DAYS away from having the Fresno guys up to pitch. WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO PROVE? And why didn't you have your best rightfielder (Schierholtz) in the outfield in the 9th?

Grant at McCovey Chronicles sums it up nicely -- What a crap game.

Yeah, this one did me in.

Hurts pretty bad, why does it feel like we are 20 games out?
