Here is the opening to my Sunday column about the Giants:
As we approach the All-Star break, let’s take stock of the San Francisco Giants. It’s especially important to take stock now, because fans fret so much about the team. You’d think the Giants were on the verge of elimination — or even extinction.
“Fret” is the correct word. Here are typical frets:
Can Pablo Sandoval ever improve his physique? (I admit to being a big fretter about the state of the Panda belly.)
Have we seen the end of Timmy as we knew him?
Is Brandon Belt the true heir apparent at first base?
You get the point.
It says here the Giants are going to make the playoffs.
