I heard some crazy number about when the Giants score 4 or more runs and what their record is. It’s 45-9! If the Giants can score just 4 runs, they have an 83% winning percentage. Ridiculous! Here’s one I counted. When the Giants score just 3 runs, they have a 21 – 8 record. So with the above number, the Giants are 66 – 17 when they score 3 runs or more.

The Giants got 6 walks tonight, and Burrell was in the lineup. I don’t think there’s any coincidence there. I have a feeling that when the Giants walk more than 4 times, they have some ridiculous winning percentage.

It’s well documented how anemic the offense is this year. But I was startled to see that the Giants are 22 and 5 when they score 5 or more runs.

Giants (38 – 32)
runs scored
5+   4-
w  22  16
l    5     27

Dodgers (47 – 24)
5+  4-
w  32  15
l     5    19

I stated tracking this 2 weeks ago, and since the Giants have had 2 losses in which they scored 5 or more runs. Perhaps the bats are heating up as the pitching has been feeling the stress?

In games where the Giants allow 5 or more runs, they have lost every game. So essentially when the pitching falters, the result will be a loss.

On the plus side, global warming has also heated up their long dormant bats.

Take a look, incredible really. The St. Petersberg Times article recaps the story. As it turns out, the umpire was a replacement ump. What I found funny was the fact that there International League’s umpires are striking, and…

“Chris Hubler, a regular International League crew chief, said in an e-mail to the Times that Young had previously handled himself in a “respectful, professional manner,” and the quality of the replacement’s work could have been part of the problem.”

Nobody likes a scab.
