Joe Morgan - FIRED!

Well, technically, so did Jon. But, ah yes. I can only imagine the joy oozing out of Jon's ears and yelling out a William Wallace-esque: "Freeeeeeeeedom!" It would be nice to have Jon Miller doing the Giants' TV and radio broadcasts permanently, but I hope he can land a better weekly gig on MLB Network.

John Shea: Oakland's team isn't getting an A in attendance

29

It's actually not as bad as when the Giants' tenancy was ending at Candlestick. But, I find it humorous when Oakland fans, players, and ownership try figuring out why fans are not showing up to games. LOL: "On April 16, they were outdrawn by their top minor-league team, the Sacramento River Cats, 14,014 to 12,225."

Erin Yoshida has signed with Chico affiliate of the Golden Gate League. It will be pretty awesome to see how far she goes. Last I heard, she has been taking pointers from knuckleballer, Tim Wakefield. I wish her great success.

Jason Bay and a Bum Knee

32
Beat writer Rob Bradford reports that Theo Epstein was concerned about red flags pointing to Jason Bay's knee. This ultimately led to Bay signing with the Mets. Bay took a physical in July, and the Red Sox's medical staff had some red flags, namely the condition of the left fielder's knees. Bay's agent Joe Urbon had come to Boston, presumably for a press conference announcing the ne deal. Instead, general manager Theo Epstein informed him of the team's concerns, and the deal was put on hold. The Red Sox said that they would keep Bay's AAV -- average annual value -- the same, at $15 million per year. But they wanted protection in the third and fourth year, in the event Bay's knees and shoulder acted up. The team also wanted Bay to undergo surgery at the end of the 2009 season. and then LOLMETS At any rate, Bay found another suitor -- the Mets -- that didn't share Boston's concerns about his long-term health. And that was where he ended up. If Bay has knee problems at some point over the next four years, the Red Sox will be proven right to take the conservative approach they did. Wow. I look at this, and then at the Giants current situation with F. Sanchez. I am just dumbfounded by the Giants medical staff and Brian Sabean's decision to re-sign him. So with this are you guys glad we didn't sign Bay?

What are things that bring a smile to my face? From BA: Venezuelan League San Francisco’s Pablo Sandoval powered the Navegantes del Magallanes to the best-of-seven championship series against Caracas. The series begins tonight. Sandoval, 23, hit .395/.425/.604 in 20 regular-season games, then batted .477/.500/.932 with five home runs in 10 playoff appearances. Maybe I'm incorrect, but didn't Giants brass pull him out of Winter ball?

Ozzie Guillen. Not a bad guy. From the Chronicle: White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen found a way to honor the fallen (Oakland) officers, writing "OPD" on the front of his cap with a silver marker. "There's no reason to take a person's life," he said. "It's a hard day for the Bay Area. I've never seen anything sadder than a police funeral. If it's police or fireman or military and you take their life away because they're protecting our country, it's a sad thing. It's a sad day not just for the Bay Area but the United States."

Judge tosses out key evidence in Bonds's ttrial

21

Your tax dollars hard at work. From the Chronicle: The judge's ruling places some of the government's most significant evidence off-limits. No longer available are: -- Reports on private steroid tests from 2000 and 2001, allegedly arranged by Anderson via the Bay Area Laboratory Cooperative in Burlingame. The government says they show Bonds was using the injectable steroids methenelone and nandrolone. -- "Handwritten notes, calendars and drug ledgers" seized in a raid on Anderson's Burlingame condominium in 2003. The government says the trainer created the documents to track Bonds' regimen of banned drugs. -- Testimony about doping calendars from Oakland A's slugger Jason Giambi and six other ball players who admit they obtained steroids from Anderson. The players said Anderson kept calendars for them that are similar to the ones he allegedly kept for Bonds, according to the government. The players still may be permitted to testify about other matters.

I'm really looking forward to seeing this movie. From the Apple site: Sugar follows the story of Miguel Santos, a.k.a. Sugar, a Dominican pitcher from San Pedro De Macorís, struggling to make it to the big leagues and pull himself and his family out of poverty. Playing professionally at a baseball academy in the Dominican Republic, Miguel finally gets his break at age 19 when he advances to the United States’ minor league system; but when his play on the mound falters, he begins to question the single-mindedness of his life’s ambition.
