The Giants have lost six of seven and are sinking fast. This is probably the toughest stretch of baseball in Gabe Kapler’s young career as the Manager of the San Francisco Baseball Club. The boys are shorthanded and the other teams are not being nice. The bullpen has been awful. Darrin Ruf has lost his stroke and I picked the wrong week to stop drinking Martinis.
The TWG Community said it best last night.
The #SFGiants made the following roster moves prior to today’s game:
• RHP Zack Littell reinstated from the Injured List
• RHP Gregory Santos recalled from Triple-A Sacramento
• RHP Tyler Beede designated for assignment
• IF Kevin Padlo optioned to Triple-A Sacramento

The big news here is the Giants DFA’ing former first round pick Tyler Beede. I remember interviewing Beede when he was at A Ball and one of the rising promising stars of the organization. This move was an important one as it was clear now that Beede was not succeeding as a Giant. We wish him luck.
Happy Birthday Willie!
