Greek Giant

Tonight our boys return to action after a much-needed off day. The Oakland Athletics arrive into town via Philadelphia, Kansas City and the East Bay. The Green and Gold gave us fits last year. In what is sure to be an interesting game, the A’s come in primed for a postseason run suddenly winning games after a slow start to the season. Madison Bumgarner pitches against Brett Anderson.

Pablo Sandoval may be headed to the IL with right elbow inflammation. Abiatal Avelino has been called up and is ready to go if that happens.

Aramis Garcia has been called up from AAA Sacramento as well.

Five Questions

  1. How have the Giants managed to be a postseason contender with their veterans (Belt, Crawford, Longoria, and Posey) all producing career-low numbers?
  2. How many wins will MadBum end up with this year?
  3. Who is the Giants second baseman of the future (ie. next year)?
  4. When will Marco Luciano make the big club?
  5. Should Bruce Bochy be in Manager of the Year contention this season?
