FORTUNA IS SPINNING DOWNWARD
Seems nothing has gone right for our San Francisco Giants. Some of the plays made by opposing players have been “other worldly” causing me to shake my head rather than stomp my foot. Things have been supernaturally bad, only thing that makes sense is that Fortuna is not in our corner at this time.
Please Fortuna, hear my plea, spin upwards.
Someone mentioned it last night and I agree–there wasn’t any pain felt (by me) after Span made that catch. It was more like a joke that was funny that I didn’t laugh at. Anyway, here are the 3 *hilarious* catches this year that ended with the Giants as the punchline each time:
The first one was Venable’s on 6/17:
Next, we have Matt Kemp’s grab on 6/25:
Finally, last night, Span takes a circuitous route to finish off the humor:
I’m not sure which was the best catch or which one hurt more. Or which one was funnier.
Also, here’s a tweet that I found interesting. I have said the same thing many times:
Additionally, Brandon Crawford has negative defensive ratings in 4 of 5 categories at fangraphs. THAT is a joke.
