Role Reversal

My friend Karen retweeted this on Twitter earlier, and my jaw hit the floor. Remember:

  1. The Giants offense isn’t exactly potent. They ranked last in the NL in runs and runs scored last year.
  2. Pitching in supposedly the Giants’ strong suit, yet their “ace” Time Lincecum has an ERA over 12.
  3. Barry Zito shut out the Rockies in Colorado this past week.
