The 2016 San Francisco Giants won 89 games this season and were three outs away from winning No. 90 when the bullpen imploded — again. You’d think manager Bruce Bochy would have been seen this coming by now; his bullpen had blown the lead, on average, one in every five games during the regular season.

But, if baseball were that predictable, if Bochy could have seen the unseen, you could bet he would have used his managerial wisdom to reconcile the outcome.

“But that’s baseball,” said Bochy.
