    As Dirt mentioned yesterday SF-Oak game got funky when Dyson went up and in on Khris Davis after giving up a bomb. Dyson got lit up and apparently has been awful. Last year with SF a fluke or not? He was dreadful before SF picked him up too.

    Blach and Stratton appear to have leg up for last 2 rotation spots so who does that leave to fill out pen?

    Yahoo has pix of the Greek soccer club owner who stormed field packing heat after goal by his hometown team was disallowed by ref. Wild.

    july 31 2012 Phils traded Pence to SF for Joseph, Seth rosin (?) and Nate the less than Great.
    Hoping if Giants are in contention same time this year Sabes pulls off another steal.

    the O’Doul book is pretty good. he had long career esp local SF PCL as player and mgr. and was interesting guy.
    Probably too short a ml career to get in Hall, unfortunately.
    The “ambassador” in title is something I was completely unaware of, his involvement in bringing American baseball players to Japan and helping to grow game over there.
    Also, since he’d grown up near the Stick, knew ahead of time it wasn’t great place to build a stadium.

      Yah he was part of the barnstorming teams of the ’30’s with the Babe and all those guys. But he did more tours in Japan in the 50s and early 60s i think. Shit, he managed the DiMaggio brothers for the Seals. That alone should get him in.

      From Lefty O’Doul’s, a pic of Lefty with the Babe

    I heard second hand that Hector got dinged in the head by a foul a few days ago while catching. Anyone know?

      All I’ve seen on Sanchez is this note in Duggar story yesterday on Giants’ web site: Catcher Hector Sanchez has been sidelined since Feb. 28 because of a hamstring injury and is expected to miss up to two more weeks, which is right around the time the Giants are slated to break camp.

    Great photos, Chuck.
    I recommend the book. I’m liking it a lot. It’s full of interesting things. He grew up in the Hunter’s Point area when it was a big beef slaughtering area. The stench would sometimes waft into the city.

      Kinda like Hunter Pence now..
      Hmmm Hunter’s Point&Hunter Pence a sketchy combination..

    Bonnies up 5 on UCLA at half.

      Lanier must be doing the job on Alcindor…

    • Flavor said, on March 13, 2018 at 7:31 pm

      excellent.

    There’s never been a cooler shot than his skyhook.

    • snarkk said, on March 13, 2018 at 7:47 pm

      Unstoppable…

      • willedav said, on March 13, 2018 at 8:34 pm

        Nate Thurmond would have begged to differ.

    • willedav said, on March 13, 2018 at 8:41 pm

      #1 one there cruising to the hoop would be Oscar. Bucks had cool team then and I always liked the ones Nelson had afterward with Lanier and then Moncrief Marques J yada yada.

    You can make a very strong argument that he was the GOAT…

  10. Macdog said, on March 13, 2018 at 8:19 pm

    Bonnies win!

    • willedav said, on March 13, 2018 at 8:36 pm

      Aron Holliday melted down completely at the end. Score 1 for the A-10.

  11. djloo27 said, on March 13, 2018 at 9:23 pm

    Sabbathia looks about 375…

  12. zumiee said, on March 13, 2018 at 9:53 pm

    A Phil Nevin sighting. He’s the new 3b coach for the Yankees.

    • zumiee said, on March 14, 2018 at 12:06 am

      That’s pretty great.
