A home run in the ninth to tie a game in San Diego is like a blueberry muffin with that coarse sugar on top.
Then a five run 12th?
That’s like five blueberry muffins with that coarse sugar on top.
I mean, what a nice way to start the second half! Not to mention getting MadBum off the hook for another seriously hard luck loss.
The big news today is that Pat Burrell was placed on the disabled list and Hector Sanchez- fresh from starting the season in Single A- is coming up to the Majors. I’m so curious to see how he does and not half as sad as I should be about Burrell meeting the DL. I hope he’s okay and everything, I just can’t say I’ll miss him that much. I’ve heard whisperings about Chris Stewart going back to AAA or being designated for assignment in near(ish) future. I would like to take this moment to say that I think he is a hot streak waiting to happen. I really do. I’ve developed a fondness for him and I hope he gets a while more with the Giants to, eh, get going. Get that .170 batting average up a li’l.
Aubrey Huff seems convinced that last night is a sign of his second half hotness being in display. And I am, just for today, totally believing in fairies and that being true. X’s and O’s, Aubrey. X’s and O’s.
And then let’s take a glowing moment for our hit streak boys (at 22 and 23, respectively).
Happy Timmy Day, everyone!
