Baseball players and Volcanoes, in the same article?!?!

I demand an article from Grant comparing different baseball players to something he is familiar with: whiskey/bourbon/scotch.

Rob Neyer still unhappy about his credit card

There's going to be a great deal of change in the National League West. I don't expect the Diamondbacks' rebuilding efforts to pay off immediately and the Padres are obviously going to miss Adrian Gonzalez terribly, but it's hard to figure where everyone else ends up. Still, the Giants might surprise a lot of people by dropping from world champions to third place, and perhaps even a not particularly competitive third place. In 2010, almost everything that could have gone well for them did go well, with a number of Giants enjoying surprisingly good seasons. If there's reason for optimism, it's tied almost solely to the assumption that Buster Posey and Madison Bumgarner will continue to thrive in their first full seasons. Will that be enough to balance the presumed regressions of Aubrey Huff, Andres Torres and Jonathan Sanchez, along with the departure of Juan Uribe (who's been replaced by Miguel Tejada)? We'll know in eight or nine months. -- Rob Neyer

A's, Nationals In Serious Talks About Willingham

I'd love for Sabean to swoop in on Willingham, if the Giants outfield situation wasn't so crowded already. Also a good FA target next winter.

SI's Tom Verducci Picks San Francisco Giants as his nomination for Sportman of the Year award

Surprisingly well written, given that I have always hated Verducci's writing in the past. Nothing new for Giants fans to learn, but just a nice read to summarize the experience.

Sorry, Bruce, your post season shenanigans did not count except for winning the 2010 World Series for the San Francisco Giants. That last part is starting to sound real!

The dangers of maple bats...

Colvin had his lung punctured by the broken barrel of the bat while at third base. Scary stuff.

Shawn (CT) Did you see Neyer last week trying to match your snarkiness in his chat? It was good, but not KLaw good. Just thought you should know. Do you think we could start a new phrase of KLaw good? Like Simmons has hot vs press box hot? Klaw (1:09 PM) I don't care how Neyer performed in his chat. I've seen Neyer chats, and the questions in Neyer chats just aren't very good. Anyone who knows how to ask a question is in Klawchats. So guys like Rob are facing four-A questions.

One less FA catcher that may stand in the way of Posey getting his shot.
