It May Be Only June 10th…But Never Thought I Would See This

Yes, the Rox are in first place.

Yes, only by 2.5 and 3.0 games.

Yes, it is only June 10th.

But take a look at this item. The 3X World Series Champs, the San Francisco Giants, who I think other than the Cubs, are my least favorite team in baseball. I like Madison Baumgarner and Buster Posey both a lot, as human beings and as baseball players. But, this has to make all of us dance a little Snoopy Dance. Have the Rox ever been 15 games up on the Giants? I mean, total, in the 24 years prior to this, if you added all the years they ended behind the Rox, do they add up to 15 back? Sorry, don’t mean to take delight in the misfortune of others, but after seeing the Giants win and win, and after seeing the national voices pick the Rox to finish behind the Giants (did anyone pick them to finish ahead of them?), this feels…really nice. One more thing to smile about.

 

TEAM         W             L              GB                 HOME              ROAD

Rox             40            23             —                    17-13                 23-10

Dodgers     37            25             2.5                  23-10                14-15

DBacks      37            26             3.0                  24- 9                 13-17

Giants        25            38            15.0                 13-15                 12-23

Padres       24            38            15.5                  14-16                 0-22

 

Just…take that in. The Rox have won just 2 games less…on the road…than the Giants all season.

 

Okay, resume enjoying the season.

“Padres 24 38 15.5 14-16 0-22” You missed a digit. Since the Padres took 2 out of 3 games from the Rockies the first time they visited Coor’s Field this year, they can’t be 0-22 on the road. They are 10-22 on the road so far this year.

Now up to 41-23 and still in first place on June 12th (before the games). I don’t think we have been sitting in first place from Opening Day through mid-June except for 24 hours being 1/2 back of the Dodgers. Think about this….Colorado only needs to play .500 even the rest of the year and still finish with 90 wins. But we don’t want to be at the mercy of a one-game wild card play-in. The way Arizona and Dodgers… Read more »

And now 16 games up on the Giants! We must be sending doctored baseballs to all the other teams in the league when they play SF.

Who throws an 0-2 pitch over the plate??? A Little Leaguer who doesn’t listen to his coach, that’s who!
This has happened to the Rox more than once. Stop it.
