Okay, fearless SoSGers, I have a question.
Tonight the Giants host the Rockies in a meaningless game, with Andrew Cashner going up against Yusmeiro Petit. This was the same matchup in Petco Park last week, when Cashner owned the Giants through eight and came away with the 3-2 victory.
I have a chance to go to tonight's game. I don't get to see a lot of baseball games live anymore, so I am kind of interested in going to this game.
Now, I didn't want to go to the game if there was a chance that I would get to see the Giants clinch the Wild Card at home. But, by virtue of Milwaukee's 5-3 loss to the Reds this morning, the Giants have already backed into the Wild Card spot. So there is nothing to play for tonight, except pride (more so for the Padres).
And look, the Giants are far from done here. It's clear that their two recent World Series wins evidence that the baseball gods have shined upon San Francisco recently. If they get over the one-game hump, there's a very good probability that we would meet the Giants in the playoffs again. And remember, we were only 10-9 against them this season: hardly a dominant ratio. So I am still worried about the Giants, so long as they have a single breath of life in them.
From a mojo perspective, is this okay for a diehard Dodger fan to attend this game? Or should I stay home and not risk angering the baseball gods?
