The San Francisco Giants Season has ended. The Sly Show's Postseason Coverage of The 2016 San Francisco Giants has ended. We turn the page, as the SF Giants were eliminated on Tuesday night. It was a really fucked up season, mainly because, the 1st half when the Giants were actually killing it, doing dope things, winning games, etc, performing like an actual Baseball team. Everyone and their momma watched the Golden State Warriors compete for a world championship of their own.
After that failed, the whole Warriors and their championship run, etc. The Giants were just about headed to go on their All-Star Break, they had an eight-game lead on the Dodgers, they were the best team in baseball (yes, even better than the Cubs), they were on pace to win 100+ games, things were looking good. Giants fans everywhere were ready to have their team compete for 4th world title in 6 years. Warriors failed their task, losing to the Cavs, blowing a 3-1 lead, which is heavily joked about in sports circles. The Giants having a great first half was the perfect shift for San Francisco sports fans. Then, the second half happened. The 2nd half was horrible, absolutely garbage. The 2nd half featured exactly what took place on Tuesday nights season ending meltdown, bullpen woes, bullpen woes, and more bullpen fuckery.
The Giants were able to sneak into the playoffs as the season wrapped up, beating the Dodgers all three games of the season, holding off the ST Louis Cardinals, who were neck and neck with the Giants for the 2nd Wild Card spot, The Giants had life, new life, they entered the playoffs, did well, Conor Gillaspie had his moments, probably the most notable moment was in the NL Wild-Card Game taking Jeurys Familia deep, sending the Giants to a Division series match against the Cubs.
The Giants Bullpen was always the bullpen, as the saying goes “The 2016 SF Giants Bullpen, Gon Bullpen,” it was a cool little series against the Cubs, but in the end, The Giants lost. Sly ramped up coverage last few weeks, as things got really exciting, the entire SF Giants fanbase felt brand new. After coming back, in an epic win Vs Cubs on Monday (10/10/16), things felt good, momentum felt like it shifted, being down 2-0, now 2-1, things felt great, Giants on their home field; they had something here.
Since 2010, the Giants have won in even years, 2010, 2012, 2014 and now, 2016 was here and it was meant to be for the Giants to win it all, right? WRONG. In the end, the San Francisco Giants will be remembered as a team that did good the 1st half, sucked the 2nd half, and sucked more when it came down to it. The way the Giants blew-the-game in embarrassing fashion.
Heading into the 9th inning in the final game, the Giants had a 5-2 lead and they fucking blew it, “they” can be narrowed down to the 2016 SF Giants Bullpen. Sly talks about these things + much more, Sly does not fuck with the 2016 SF Giants bullpen and repeatedly says changes “must be made.” All in all, Sports' is part of everyday life, it brings people together, and, the art of competition is something that everyone can enjoy, Giants came up short, Cubs move on to the next round, but these are basic facts of life, to quote the famous poet Tupac Shakur “Life goes on,” and in this case it definitely will.
