Who here saw this coming? Ok, the question was not who HOPED this would happen. Who actually thought this was going to happen? Let me clarify... who actually thought this was going to happen after the Giants fell behind 0-2 in the NLDS after losing two straight AT HOME and after the Giants bats looked about as hot as Antartica? You, in the back, really? The Giants are looking to advance to the NLCS for the 2nd time in 3 years with a victory over the Reds tomorrow morning (for us pacific timers). It's not going to be easy. But this is Giants baseball and it's never supposed to be easy. In fact, winning the division so easily felt kinda sorta odd, did it not? It felt almost wrong. No grinding the teeth, no biting the finger nails. Just business like wins that eventually eliminated the Dodgers with about a week left in the season. Well, we knew the torture would have to come at some point. And it took the form of two ugly losses to the Reds at home to open the NLDS.
