Giants Roundup: Didn’t Splash Hits Get Retired Three Years Ago?
The Homer Watch is heating up: Alex Rodriguez 9, San Francisco Giants 7.
Meanwhile, in “real” games, the Giants beat the Cardinals in 12 innings. Barry hit a splash homerun in the bottom of the eighth to send the game into overtime. Jonathan Sanchez looked good. Pedro Feliz had a key error. Rich Aurilia was the other hero, singling in the bottom of the 12th. [SFGate]
Lance Niekro has started taking ground balls at third base. Could this mean the end of the Pedro Feliz era? [Scouts Inc]
All three Molina catching brothers were in the Bay Area yesterday: Jose with the Angels in Oakland, Yadier with the Cardinals and Bengie with the Giants. You know what that means? Tickle fight! Slumber party!
The bad news? Barry Zito is making about $90K per inning pitched. The good news? Jason Schmidt is already on the DL. [Rumors and Rants]
