Ugly outing by Santos. Just when my SPs decide to have a nice day, my only RP implodes. !+)
It's good for Jansen owners. ;-D

Gibson brings in Heilman to ruin IPK's final line. Just wish the Dbacks would DFA this bum.

Guerrier is decidedly mediocre yet managed a nice career and fooled a team into giving him a nice contract.

Matt Joyce is a beast. 2 triples today.

However, I can't seem to get legitimate offers for this guy.

I'll just ride him and check for myself if he has actually turned the corner or not.

brilliant managing by Bob Geren.

Cahill had been mowing down the Giants all night - 6 innings of 1 hit ball, just 83 pitches total.
so in the top of the 7th with 2 outs, runnner on 3rd (who got to 3rd on a "passed" ball only because home plate umpire John Tumpane is a freakin idiot who missed the clear foul ball that glanced off the bat AND HIT HIM IN THE LEG )Geren yanks Cahill for pinch hitter Matsui.

except theres a pitching change and Matsui is then pulled to be pinch hit for as well. soGeren sacrifices his best pitcher and most powerful hitter to bring up ....CONNOR JACKSON! who promptly grounds out to end the inning.

he did the Giants a huge favor bc we had no chance of hitting Cahill.
pure genius
