Box Score Bytes - Game 31

You know at some point you just have to shake your head in disbelief and say baseball has a strange sense of humor.  I respect all teams but I do dislike the Giants and their current make up and to see this cobbled together lineup just win night after night against the Rox is just painful. 

I mean you have a nice young catcher, third baseman, and average right fielder but then you've got a 34 yo first baseman (0.281/.343/.473), 33 yo journeyman second baseman (0.297/.335/.413), 37 yo SS/3B  (0.286/.337/.460), 34 yo left fielder (0.254/.362/.474), and a 33 yo centerfield (0.276/.334/.441).  Bunch of misfits for a bench. 

Of course you do have a hell of a pitching staff and a surprising amount of former Rox relievers but why this team has our number is just a mystery of baseball...I will leave it at that!
