Top of Mind Thursday October 6, 2016: Playing Like There’s No Tomorrow

Top of Mind Thursday

Last night, Madison Bumgarner of the San Francisco Giants pitched a complete game shutout of the New York Mets to win the National League Wild Card slot and advance in the post-season playoffs.

The Giants had a bizarre season, where they had the best record in baseball for several months, followed by the worst record for the second half of the season. They squeaked into the playoffs only by winning the last 4 games of the season.

Yet it was enough to get them to the post-season, where last night’s victory was the difference between moving forward and going home. There are three more tough series between here and another World Series championship, so nothing is guaranteed.

But when it came time to have the rubber meet the road, the Giants knew it was about success not perfection. They needed to win this game, and they’ll have to play good enough to beat the Chicago Cubs in a best of five series next.

When it’s all on the line, you need to push your team to play like there’s no tomorrow. Because sometimes there isn’t.
