We’ve been going out with the San Francisco Giants for a couple of months now. Boy, we sure had some fun on that first date in L.A. But we also had that weird week in Philly. So, we aren’t exactly going steady with the 2018 Giants. One has to ask the question: is this relationship going to end well?
Most relationships don’t end well. Many end in tears, regret, guilt, and ice cream. Nearly two months into this 2018 campaign and I’m still not sure how this will end. These San Francisco Giants have certainly teased us, haven’t they?
What with game-winning homers, sweeping the best team in the National League, and other positive developments it has looked at times like this was the beginning of a long, happy marriage. However, these Giants have shown us what they look like without makeup as well. They spilled their drink on our shorts on that date in Philly and they’re always a little too tired to do anything fun in San Diego.
I’m pretty sure that I like these Giants, but I’m not sure if they like us back. They like to lead us on, they ignore our texts for a series or two. Yet, thus far they’ve always come back to us eventually. There’s something to be said for that.
Enough of the dating metaphors. I think that the 2018 San Francisco Giants are good. There, I said it. Are you happy? They’re hovering around .500 despite a ton of injuries and I’m proud of them. We shall see if they continue to hang on but I have hope.
Even if this relationship falls apart (either in September or October), we’ll have fun with this team. Sure, there will be some tear-filled nights where we argue, but in all I think we’ll share more joy than pain.
