After the end of today 9/13's games for the four....wow...what a race for that final third Wild Card spot in the NL....only 1/2 game separating all four teams....the Diamondbacks and the Reds both at 76-71, anf the Giants and the Marlins both at 75-71.

Tomorrow the Giants play the last game of the day....by 4 1/2 hours over any of the other three.

By the time the Giants play tomorrow, they'll know the current day's outcomes for the others.

The Giants were, by a few percentage points ahead of the other three teams for the last wild card. Then, in the next three games ending 9/16, they lost all three, while the other three teams each won two in a row.



Giants are now 2 1/2 back re the third Wild Card slot.

Well, they’re now officially a sub-.500 team. Of Kapler’s tenure, 4 seasons, they were at or below .500 for 3 of them. Of course, there’s the great 2021 season where they won 107 games but I attribute that more to Buster Posey’s leadership than to Kapler’s.

There’s always next season.

Also, IMO, Kapler's lack of overall success generates appreciation for Bochy .

Unfortunately for the AL West, he didn't stay retired and is now in Arlington....new stadium, and then a new manager.

No one can take the 3 titles in 5 seasons away from us . I've been looking on eBay for an 'all three titles cap'. No such animal seems to exist....T-shirts yes, caps no.

I may have one made ....and have an A's '72, '73, '74, and '89 one made as well (I went to every A's postseason game in Oakland through 1975).

Outside of their most recent teams (the Padres, Cubs, and Blue Jays), the Giants have the best odds of landing Blake Snell, Cody Bellinger, and Matt Chapman:

I don't know about Bellinger. How do you go from an MVP to 3 years in a row struggling to hit .200 then back to an all star level last year? What will he do once he has a long term contract? Last time he struggled to hit .200 3 years in a row.

The reigning Cy Young Award winner, Blake Snell, agreed to a two-year, $62 million deal with the San Francisco Giants last night, ending a prolonged free agency.

And they have Chapman.

Two out of three from my 12-31 post.
