I’m just going to stop talking about how I’m utterly shocked that the Giants keep winning. Of course they keep winning. Apparently that’s what they do. Apparently the Giants are the best team ever. Apparently all it took was sticking Cody Ross, Edgar Renteria, Freddy Sanchez, Pat Burrell and Juan Uribe on the same team […]
