The Giants’ four-game winning streak has been weird, as only TortureBall can be. Capping it off was yesterday’s game, in which the only RBI goes to home plate umpire Bob Davidson for calling a bases-loaded balk. But beyond that, here are some observations from the past week:
First of all, I’d like to point to June 22, when Aaron Rowand started in center field in favor of Andres Torres, even though Twins pitcher Nick Blackburn is right-handed. Many on the Twitterverse and blogosphere (I’m not naming names) started yelling at Bochy, using this as further evidence that he doesn’t understand baseball, etc.
