The scores from the last three games were 5-0 (rained out after three innings), 8-0, and 7-1. Although it is just spring training, the Giants scoring just one run in the last 21 innings has got to be alarming.
The Giants do have the best record in the Cactus League, but that has to be taken with a grain of salt. With the bell ring just around the corner, now is the time teams need to roll, not stumble
Their competition has been looking good of late. Although they struggled early, the Dodgers have been playing better, winning four out of their last six games. The team that plays well going into the season is the team that usually starts off well.
In addition, the Diamondbacks have won four of their last seven. They could make some noise early. One player of note is Chris Young, who is hitting .306 with three home runs and 13 RBIs in 13 games.
Next, there is the San Diego Padres who have won three in a row. The Rockies are 1-1 this week, but were beating the Giants 5-0 in Monday's game that was rained out in the third inning.
Things are not getting any better for the Giants. Once again, they are getting clobbered, as the score is 13-3 Royals in the bottom of the seventh inning. This has got to be a concern.
Once again, the starting pitching has faltered for the Giants. In tonight's game, Madison Bumgarner went four and one-third innings, giving up eight earned runs and 10 hits.
Just Monday against the Rockies, Tim Lincecum gave up five runs in three innings. The Giants have got to be concerned about this happening so late in spring training.
Then again, spring training counts for nothing in the standings, but fans should be concerned about the Giants' horrible play in all facets of the game with opening day just six days away.
