After getting swept on the road by the Cincinnati Reds, it’s time to realize that the SF Giants are just not a very good team right now.

All season we’ve been told not to panic and that it’s early, but the time for excuses is over for the SF Giants and it’s fans that only see orange and black.

This team is just not very good right at this point. And I make an emphasis to say they aren’t good right now, because I still think they’re better than what they’ve shown in the early going.

However, they are digging themselves such a hole that it’s really hard to see them getting out of it at this point.

They currently have the worst winning percentage in the National League at .344 with a record of 11-21 … that’s just sickening to think about.

The excuse that Buster Posey missed some time and Madison Bumgarner has been injured don’t fly with me anymore. Posey only missed six games, and they were 2-4 during that stretch.

Losing Bumgarner for an extended period of time is certainly devastating as he’s a pitcher that can stop a losing streak, but the SF Giants still have good enough starting pitching to contend without him.

What happened in Cincinnati this past weekend is unacceptable. For as bad as they’ve been, the SF Giants had a chance to get their offense going against a very bad pitching staff, and instead it was the Reds offense that exploded.

At some point you have to come to the realization that this team just isn’t very good.

I really thought bringing up Christian Arroyo would give this team the spark they needed. But even with how well Arroyo has played, it hasn’t been enough to ignite this offense.

I’m not saying it’s time to blow up the team, but some definite changes have to be made soon. Yes, there is still a lot of time left in the season, but you can’t just sit back hope things get better anymore.

This team can’t just wait for Bumgarner to come back and hope everything will be fine. If this team is going to have any chance of making the postseason this year, changes must happen right now.

Getting swept by the Reds was the final straw for me. And if you’re still stuck behind those orange and black goggles, wake up, because this team is not very good right now.
