Two years to the Day- Oh Baby!!

Exactly two years to the day (May 10) the Giants comeback win over the Mets, 6-5, in New York, was the first time they have won a game when trailing after the 8th inning. 

The fact that it came at a time when nobody knew what to expect is serendipitous. But I find it interesting that a team struggling like the orange and black has been (in 2017) does something in which to build upon.  God is good, but never dance in a small boat. 

Christian Arroyo hits a bases-clearing double. Buster goes yard for the third game in-a-row. Eduardo Nunez contributes with a line drive snaring snag at third base and singles to lead off the 9th inning.

Their outfield is reprehensible. Guys getting to balls and then not putting them away (in their gloves) is all too common. And unacceptable. I mean, come on!  I grew up watching Willie Mays. And a Giant outfield that evolved into Garry Maddox, who was described by Ralph Kiner, Mets announcer, as, "Two-thirds of the Earth is covered by water. The other third is covered by Garry Maddox." (Maddox's best days were as a Philadelphia Phillie.)

There will be more roster moves. I once heard that talk is cheap because supply exceeds demand. So I'll leave it at that, for now.
