Tim Lincecum provides comic relief, and some links

Anybody catch one of the funniest moments of the season last night, after Tim Lincecum struck out Jason Giambi in the fourth inning? After giving up a first-pitch blast to

Odds stacked against Giants tonight

When you watch the San Francisco Giants long enough, you notice things. Like how it’s not a real Giants rally unless at least one wild pitch, infield single or throwing

MLB Monday: Fans are getting picky

Before we go through our first link dump in a while (hey, keep your “Dannon Activia” yogurt jokes to yourself), a few thoughts on baseball attendance. In Extra Baggs, Andrew

Recap of the busiest Tuesday ever

I don’t know if I can remember a Tuesday filled with more sports activity than what we had yesterday, and to top things off I had family responsibilities thrown into

Our server = Bob Howry

For all of you who’ve been wondering why your favorite Bay Area sports blog has been running a little slow lately (or not at all), we’ve been having a little

MLB Monday: Trading Holliday

One doesn’t have to be Billy Beane to figure out why everyone’s speculating on where Matt Holliday is going to be traded. The Oakland A’s have the worst record in

NBA Tuesday: Warriors ownership needs Cialis

No offense to Larry Riley, who seems like a nice enough guy, but all today’s press conference announcing Riley as the new Warriors’ GM did was announce to the world

Manny’s got nice, child-bearing hips

I have to thank Manny Ramirez. While the drug he tested positive for couldn’t have made him as fertile as the chick on the First Response commercials (Ovulation Sensation, baby!),

Just shoot me now

I’m watching ESPN as I write this, and Jeremy Schaap is reporting that sources say Brett Favre sent x-rays of his right shoulder to the Minnesota Vikings. If the shoulder

Relax, it’s a long season

Aw man, the Dodgers are done. No Manny Ramirez, no offense. No offense, no home winning streak. Did you see how pathetic they were tonight? They only scored 6 runs

As Cain and Zito go, so go the Giants

Matt Cain is 3-1, the same record as Tim Lincecum, but he’s been the staff MVP thus far. It doesn’t matter than Lincecum has struck out almost twice as many

Don’t trust anyone over 30

That’s right, you can’t trust any of us. I’m one of them myself, a 31-year-old living in my mother’s basement. Alright, that isn’t true (as far as you know!), but

Manny Ramirez tests positive…he gone!

What a great way to wake up. Manny Ramirez, the guy many of us (myself included) wished the Giants would have made a greater effort to sign this past off-season,

Barry Zito isn’t cursed

Barry Zito may still be 0-2, but stop saying he’s this year’s Matt Cain. Sub-4.00 ERA and 1.16 WHIP aside, Zito isn’t some poor schlub who, despite working his tail

Tim Lincecum could use a bread bowl

Hey kids, it’s time for more of your favorite segment, Loosely Associated Thoughts! Today’s version of LAT is brought to you by the all-new Domino’s Bread Bowl Pasta, pasta so

Yeah, but will he let Brian Urlacher spit on him?

In the 1995 NFL Draft, the defending Super Bowl Champion San Francisco 49ers traded a boatload of draft picks to the Cleveland Browns to move up to the No. 10

Manny Ramirez, the Bret Michaels of baseball

Adam Duritz, Chris Kirkpatrick…Manny Ramirez? The former two are singers who’ve gone the way of the weaved dreads. In Duritz’s case his fake locks helped him bag a pretty shocking

Jonathan Broxton is fat

Ya closer’s so fat!!! How fat is he??? Ya closer is so big and fat that he can get busy with twenty-two burritos, but times are rough I seen him

4 hits for the A’s, 4 hot dogs for me

I’d never even come close to seeing a no-hitter in person, but if I were to see anyone pull it off it would have to be Tim Wakefield. I’ve only

Does blogging burn calories? God, I hope so

There’s so many things to go over from this past weekend that my head is spinning. Or maybe it’s all the bacon-wrapped dates filled with manchego cheese I ate yesterday
