The San Francisco Giants are bad. It is now enshrined in law that that is how every article written about this team is to begin for the foreseeable future.

I’m disappointed in this team. You’re disappointed in this team. The San Francisco Giants are disappointed in this team. Yet, we as Giants fans still have plenty to be thankful for.

I’m the most negative and pessimistic person I know. However, I feel it is my duty to find the silver lining of this season. Or maybe the bronze lining. Okay fine, whatever color medal the worst team in the league gets. What? The worst team in the league doesn’t get a medal? C’mon Manfred, work with us buddy. We’ll take any color. No, not barf green!

I miss Selig. Anyways, let’s go over nice things about the Giants shall we? Enough of all this sadness and anger.

Buster Posey

: The one player performing as expected. Buster is a treasure. The one upside of this unbelievably horrid season is that we’ve gotten to see the sassy side of Buster. Remember when he got angry at Belt for not scoring on his base hit? Who could forget him literally doing

nothing

when

Hunter Strickland

attacked

Bryce Harper

with a 95 mph projectile. Or him calling out a pitcher for hitting him and saying he couldn’t get him out. I’d prefer Buster Never Say Anything Remotely Controversial Posey next year because that probably means the Giants aren’t on pace to lose 100 games.

More from Around the Foghorn

  • Madison Bumgarner: Sure, the dirt bike fiasco was an early kick below the belt in a season full of below the belt kicks, but since he’s returned he’s been absolutely stellar. Maybe he shouldn’t ride dirt bikes next year. Just a thought Madison.
  • Bruce Bochy: Anyone tweeting about how Bochy needs to go is a Dodgers fan in disguise and should have their thumbs removed for such heresy. He’s a Hall of Fame manager and I hope his heart gives us at least 10 more seasons.
  • Kruk and Kuip: With Vin Scully’s retirement, they’re the best broadcasters in the business. Hands down. Even if the Giants are getting decimated they still make it fun. It’d be nice to hear Kuip say “He hits it high!…” more frequently next year though.
  • AT&T Park: It’s the best park in the league. No debate. In 50 years (climate change permitting) it”ll have the history factor of a Fenway or Wrigley and will be regarded as one of the best parks of all time. Even more so than it already is. It’s a shame to see it so empty these days though.
  • Uhhh…am I forgetting anything: There’s not much else to be positive about.

    Next: Panik Proves He Still Has It

    So there you have it. You already knew you should be thankful for all the things above. I just wanted to remind you that while this team is abysmal, there are still things to smile about.

    Oh yeah, and they won the World Series three times this decade.
