"Enjoy it while it lasts"

A month ago on July 4, the Giants lost a 15-inning nightmare in Denver and were 41-40 -- looking every bit like a team that's destined to finish the season under .500. Instead, tonight was a bit of payback for all the lousy games that the Orange and Black have endured at Coors over the years. They're now 17 games over .500 at 62-45.

Paulie at Give Em Some Stankeye has a fine post about the strangeness of last night's beatdown of the Rox at Coors Field: The Giants rapped out 19 hits, and by the time Andres Torres blasted his 11th home run to give the Giants a 10-0 lead, it just seemed cruel. It's not often these days you get to take sadistic pleasure in a vicious Giants beatdown of another team, especially not with this recent, low-offense incarnation, so games like tonight's are just fun. Enjoy it while it lasts, because another day brings another game in Coors Field and the potential for whole new parade of nightmares.

Well today didn't go over too well, but a split is a win in my book.
