Giants lose game, NL West

The Giants lost a dull game against the Padres, and the Dodgers came back in the ninth to win the division. Okay. On a day that started with a reminder that the individual results of baseball games don’t really mean anything, the Giants lost again and the Dodgers won the NL West.

Why the San Francisco Giants are on the verge of a historical collapse

Graphing a Week of the Giants Bullpen

Last night, the Giants took a 1-0 lead over the Dodgers into the 9th inning. They lost anyway.

Did The Giants’ Even-Year Luck Just Run Out?
