Greek Giant

Johnny Black is on assignment today and I don’t have time to get into this weekend’s games. I must say Brandon Crawford looked pretty good on the mound yesterday!

After losing two of three to a less than mediocre Cubs team in San Francisco the Giants are now 3-6 in their last nine games at Willie Mays Field. That’s not going to cut it. If I had more time I would go into detail about winning at home and how important it is. I would also spend 1000 words on these stuuuuupid bullpen games that accomplish absolutely nothing strategically exceeeeept stressing your relievers more than they should be.

Tonight the Giants begin a three-game series in St. Louis. It will be Webb (4-6, 3.09) agains Liberatore (1-2, 6.00). Game time is 6:45 PM in Ozzie Smith Park.
