A Win’s a Win

Today’s 6-5 victory over the Mets wasn’t pretty, but a win’s a win.  Christian Arroyo had a big day, going 2-for-5 with three RBIs.

I’m at the stage now where I’m just glad the Giants are busy developing Arroyo before his 22nd birthday (May 30th).  Arroyo really isn’t playing all that well (.707 OPS and three errors), but he’s getting the kind of experience for which there is no substitute, and he’s young enough he really could be something some day.

I’m still concerned about how little Arroyo walks, but he walked twice yesterday, so at least I can be convinced for the moment that he is making some kind of progress in this regard.

Derek Law got an ugly save, but he still seems like a guy who can continue to help the Giants for the four seasons after this one.  Like the Mississippi River, Buster Posey  just keeps rolling along.

Justin Ruggiano got two singles today, which will probably keep him on the active roster for at least a few games longer than I’d like.  The Youth Movement is now!

    With the Giants’ current winning streak at a season high four games, they need to win only eight more in a row to reach .500.

    Giants got Kershawed tonight. What I gathered from the recent five game winning steak is that they probably won’t lose 100 games this year. A .500 record still seems like a long-shot. Act accordingly.
