They say a picture is worth a thousands words. So with this week’s Torture Report we are going to play fast and loose with the rules of this column. The following is a visual heavy version of the:
Giants Torture Report: Week Nine
Remember this? (Because these are moving pictures, you may consider this clip roughly 100,000 words)
Why is this good you ask? Because for a few minutes it showed there was some fight (pun fully intended) left in this team. It proved the pride is still there. If only it would have put an actual spark back in the play on the field. Sadly, it was not enough to catapult them to victory in the game, or the series.
Are we just gonna sit here & act like Buster Posey isn't the worst teammate in the history of sports? My man didn't even think about helping

This tweet list goes on and on. Anyone who questions Buster Posey‘s loyalty to his pitchers or his team is flat out ugly. There I said it. I’m all for a spirited debate, but on this, you will be wrong. Like this guy.
I lied a little, I did care. Not because he dropped the mic, but because people who know nothing about the Giants felt the need to weigh in on this issue.
Stat of the week: In Friday night’s 10-0 win over Philadelphia, the Giants loaded the bases in five out of the nine innings in the game.
