  • Another Uncompelling Installment of Sunday Night Baseball

    Perhaps it was because after watching the U.S. win their World Cup quarter-final against Brazil, any game would have seemed mundane in comparison. But this game had sloppy fielding, high pitch counts, walks and not really anything to get excited about.

    San Francisco is a very good team and despite the popgun offense, they have an amazing pitching staff that will take them far. They shouldn't have any trouble winning the division unless Colorado does one of their 18-2 runs. Arizona is a good ballclub but I can't see them hanging with the Giants in the second half. If they do acquire Carlos Beltran - look out.

    As for the Mets, they've had a nice season staying over .500 with so many injuries to heir best players. Not only that, they have to play the Phillies and the Braves 18 times each and the Marlins are no pushover and even the Nationals are at .500.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm returned tonight, but the big story on ESPN was Brian Wilson curbing his streak of bad luck as of late and finally getting the save and helping his team close the game out. Bruce Bochy will probably give him a chance in the All-Star game on Tuesday so he needed this to boost his confidence so that he could actually hang in there with the best in the world. The Giants got most of the series outside of the aforementioned blown game on Friday by Wilson. The Giants are rolling and they have a good shot at making the postseason, it is just a matter of if they can get past the Phillies again. I hope they do.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • New York Manager Terry Collins: We had (Matt) Cain on the ropes several times, but he got out of it, which is what pitchers like that do. When we're playing good, we were getting the two-out hits. We didn't do that the last two nights here.

    • Jason Bay: It could be better and it could be worse. If you were to tell me we would be missing Player A and B and still be where we are, I think most of us would take it. There are definitely reasons for optimism, no question. When we start getting guys back, it will be like making a trade.

    • (on being selected to play in his first All-Star game, as an injury replacement for New York shortstop Jose Reyes)
      Pablo Sandoval: It's exciting. It was one of those things you don't want to forget. All the fans showed up for you and made me excited.
