2012 Low Point
The low point of this 2012 season occurred during the Giants/Cardinals game tonight at Busch Stadium. The low point was not the 15 - 0 drubbing that the Giants handed the Cardinals. The low point was not the 3:19 minutes it took to play this game. It wasn't the home plate umpire, Tim McClelland, and his incredibly slow strike call. It wasn't that the Giants outhit the Cardinals 15 - 4. The low point was not that rain was threatening at the end of the game. (It started raining 11 minutes after the game ended) No, the low point occurred in the bottom of the ninth inning with a runner on first base (single) and nobody out. The low point occurred when the Giants pitcher WALKED the batter with a 15 - 0 lead and rain threatening at any moment. I probably did not have to write this as I'm sure everyone heard my screams of disgust when ball four arrived at home plate.
