With the San Francisco Giants now down four games behind the Arizona Diamondbacks, the season is winding to a close. Will this team, which scored a total of eight runs in four games against the National League’s worst pitching staff, have a shot at sweeping the Diamondbacks this coming weekend? At this juncture, nothing less than a sweep will suffice. Even then, assuming that all things hold up through the Chicago series, a sweep will not be enough to close the gap.
So, with an offense that is about as exciting to watch as insects mating (and substantially less funny), it is officially time to switch the focus to other things, such as which player is the Giants' best strikeout artist.
