Bruce Bochy wasn't running from the media.
He made that much clear as the 11th and final reporter filed out of his office on Monday night, when the San Francisco manager who doesn't have an ounce of Ozzie Guillen in his fiber couldn't help but be his polite self even amid this torturous time. And, no, we're not talking about the kind of close-game, hurts-so-good torture Giants fans grew to love when it became their unofficial team motto in 2010.
Things are really getting painful for the defending World Series champions.
"I wasn't running," Bochy said while explaining his bizarre and unprecedented decision to hold his postgame news conference in his office as opposed to the conference room where the media contingent had, per the routine, gathered before being relocated. "It's just (that) sometimes you might get something different or better from the players."
Which is to say, of course, that he is officially out of answers.
