Elmer loses his control in the sixth again? Kata had half as many errors as hits? Mantei grumbles but does his job? It's freakin' Colorado? Man, that was what ya call a season-defining game...

It's still a little early to call it a "season-defining game." While 12 wins at any point in the season is incredibly impressive, esp. for a team that's lost both its 1 and 1 1/2 starters (sorry, but Schilling isn't a 2 starter - he's just an ace that doesn't start on the days the ace should), that's doubly impressive. Unfortunately, they're still behind a couple of strong teams, one with outstanding pitching, the other made it to the World Series last year. If they can keep up this general pace when Schilling and Johnson come back, then I'll be convinced.

Giants will probably have to make a deal for pitching, Aurilia isn't doing much, Alfonzo is going back to when he was hurt, etc.

As far as Lalaland, granted Kevin Brown is pitching like he used to, but their offense is even weaker than ours is, there's still some personality problems, and that bullpen is being used heavily.

I'm not so sure the Giants will have to make a deal for pitching. Rueter's fine, Schmidt's excellent - the only possible they may have is a third starter. (This is assuming Ainsworth, who's now thought to be back in August sometime, isn't ready to be the third starter.) I wish I could tell you what's going on with Alfonzo, but even I don't know. Aurilia should come around eventually.

As for the Dodgers, their lack of offense will probably catch up to them at some point, but when you're winning games 2-1, they still count the same as 8-3. It's not just Brown, either - it's their entire staff, pretty much. I don't think the bullpen will hurt as much as you think - the way I see it, if Andy frickin' Ashby can step in and win games, they're doing all right. They've got a semi-surplus of quality bullpen arms, I believe. (Brohawn's due off the DL soon, I think, if he's not already.)

Moss was/is the three man. He started off gangbusters, but got stopped by a brick wall. He should even out. He's nowhere near as good as he was when he won five of six decisions to start the year. He's also not as bad as he's been lately. Basically, he's a solid number three pitcher, especially considering his home park. Williams and Foppert are no bums themselves, and they've got Ryan Jensen down here in Fresno with MLB experience if they need another starter. Feliz seems to be finally emerging at third base, Aurilia's been rung up by one injury after another this season. All I've heard about the Giants on the trade front is them trading for a half-season rental at closer.



Baseball's Sad Lexicon

These are the saddest of possible words:
"Tinker to Evers to Chance."
Trio of bear cubs, and fleeter than birds,
Tinker and Evers and Chance.
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
Making a Giant hit into a double-
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble:
"Tinker to Evers to Chance."

ugh, now we go the other way...somehow I don't think patterson isn't going to stay when the big 2 come back...

anyways, moss throws garbage, but he's not as developed as kirk or glavine. Worrell's fine as the closer.

and you know the walks are gonna pile up on nomo and ishii, perez already isn't as good as he was last year. they're so dependent on Green it's funny.

We gave up HAREN!? WE GAVE UP KIKO'S DELIVERY SERVICE?! Aw, shit. I guess this makes sense, but I really didn't want to see Danny go. Sup, I guess. Marquis, sure. But not Haren.
