    Well that was the most pathetic 9th inning meltdown by the orange and black that I can recall ever witnessing.

    Iím so, SO glad, I missed that horrific choke job. 7-2 lead in the 9th? Flores a step away from first base to make it 2 outs man on 2nd? Kapler sticking with his crappy instincts and leaving Gott in there when he was obviously not right? Just reading about it made my blood boil.

    Everyone's pointing the finger at Flores despite Crawford being just as responsible (if not more) for not getting an out there.

    I can only hope that Kapler & Zaidi are purposely setting the team up for losses at this point.

    Not even surprised Spliff. Bad teams find ways to lose even when given a typically comfortable lead. Giants will need to get younger at certain positions, get way better defensively, and upgrade their pitching in the next couple years. Bright spot is, it looks like they will have some bats at least. Hard to be patient because of how spoiled we were, but I guess we have no choice.

    May be 2022 before we see any semblance of a real baseball season. Majority of these players here now, won't be here then. I assume (hope) management sees this for what it is and plans accordingly as far as looking to the future.

    This is not MLB baseball, they should have cancelled the season. I can't get into anything about baseball this year, it's a write-off to me. Feel bad for guys like Yaz, but likely he won't be here either for when things may matter again. Likely I won't be here either by that time...

    I second this. Itís already bad enough having a shortened, awkward, and risky season due to everything going on with the pandemic, but then to be tortured like this with mistake laden baseball is just pure misery.

    Donít say that my friend, we hope to have you healthy and rooting for the Giants under better circumstances as soon as next season. Of course no one can promise how good theyíll be, but society will get back to normal sooner than later. Itís been hard to follow them this year for me too. So abnormal the setup and the minimal amount of games this year. Itís been tough to get siked up.

    However, next year there will be a normal regular season, there will be real fans in the stands, and I will be one or them. Iím positive of it. Also, if youíre capable, you will attend our shining Oracle Park too . If not, I hope you stay strong and root for them fervently from wherever you are for many years to come

    I think some of these "vets" were originally planned on with the intention of moving them at the deadline.

    Been a pretty depressing year all around this year, everywhere in the world. Baseball is an afterthought for me, much as I love my Giants. Maybe next year we get back to normal baseball, but all this man on 2nd in xtra's, and 7 inning games crap is not baseball to me. Mark this season with an asterisk on top of an asterisk.

    Giants had 4 WS wins in my lifetime (okay, I was less than 2 y/o in 1954), pretty satisfying overall. Along with some exciting teams and some great players along the way. The '89 earthquake series was a big wake-up call as to how insignificant sports really are in life. You learn to take **** in stride.

    Anyhow, I'm still hoping for better things, and hoping to be around to see them. We can only hope this new regime brings us back to respectability, and we can compete with our rivals in LA, who are the class organization of the league, if not all of baseball, as I see it. No hate there from me, they're doing it and doing it right. No reason we can't do the same.

    Agreed #24. Our priorities are all different nowadays. Glad sports can serve as a little bit of a distraction sometimes, but there is so much going on. Itís hard to focus, but I take it in when I can and it brings a little happiness. At minimum itís a break from the everyday stresses weíre all facing. We just have to try and be grateful for what we do have and hope we get back to some type of normalcy eventually. I have a newborn, a good wife and family, plus a comfortable life. Couldnít ask for anything more, especially seeing all the suffering happening around us. There will be brighter days in the future.
