This Was for You, Bobby Thompson...

Bobby Thompson, iconic hero of the all-time accomplishment in baseball history, died this year.  No team wins the pennant like the Giants win the pennant because of this man's scorching line drive...

Too Much Rest

Rest is invaluable during this time of year.  I'm very happy that the Giants won yesterday because it gave everyone some much needed rest.  But I am a little worried it may be a bit too much....

Trade Values

APBA Baseball, anyone?

It's been a while since I have been to McCovey Chronicles.  I got pretty sick of it.  For me it became an S.A.T. Word Analogy.  McCovey Chronicles is to Baseball as Christians are to Christianity. ...

Barry Bonds Poll...

It's a simple poll.  Feel free to comment.  The man is a Giant at heart, but he wants to play more.  The Giants could open up negotiations with him again, and then again... they could not.
