Character Matters

When you are a team that is struggling it never fails that when a rally is taking shape those players mired in a slump get the call. Hitters like Chris Marrero and Denard Span to name a couple, in this young 2017 season.

And because struggling is contagious, just as being hot can cause hitters to feed off of one another, even Brandon Crawford grounds into double-plays.

But when it's all said and done, you look for the character of a team. Guys who pull in one direction because they know their teammates represent the same values they themselves are mindful of, it's a brotherhood. All for one and one for all in its very essence.

Guys who believe when fans may be having cause for doubts. It has been three times since 2010, (that the Giants have won the World Series title) and yet with the media conjuring up stories that may sell more than just papers, some fans get to thinking TOO MUCH!

Remember the Beatle song, Eleanor Rigby? When (singer) Paul asked about the Lonely People?
All the lonely people, where do they all come from. All the lonely people, where do they all belong?  Keep with the pessimistic, negative, and cynical thoughts and YOU will find the doom and gloom where no party hats and confetti exist because you will belong with the lonely people.
