I dare you to care about this game, like in any meaningful way as far as the division goes the division is won, and there isn’t a ton to analyze here, so I give you this.

Which was done in reference to this

So that was the only cool thing, really, Jimmy Rollins trolled Madison Bumgarner, the bullpen was good but not good enough to overcome a putrid Mike Bolsinger start (who by the way has been generally awful since getting inserted into the starting rotation). It’s probably time to believe that his true talent level isn’t that of a good to very good starter and closer to a back end guy that you’re hoping you don’t have to rely on for more than Stephen Fife, realistically for him to achieve the results he had early in the season, his command had to be at levels rivaling Cliff Lee, and…well… that’s probably not a safe bet for Mike, which is fine considering they got him for free in the offseason, and it also does not matter not even a little bit at this point in the season, they are going to the postseason and he probably won’t make the roster which is okay with me.

Uh so that was pretty much it, aside from Joel Peralta raising his K/9 nearly a full point by striking out 4 Rockies somehow and tossing 2 scoreless innings. Also Ian Thomas tossed 2 scoreless innings and maybe he’s not a total zero out of the bullpen.

So yeah, the magic number is still 3 but might wind down to 2 by the end of the night considering the Giants are down 4-3 in the bottom of the 7th.
