The Giants hired Bruce Bochy as their new manager today. Many people, myself included, are facinated by Bochy’s huge head (seriously – it’s gotta be a size 9). This made me think of a great scene from ‘So I Married an Axe Murderer’. You’ll want to forward to the 3:02 mark to get to the scene that I’m talking about.

The Giants ended their disappointing 2006 season with another loss. Was this Barry Bonds’ last game in a Giants uniform?

Bidding on the Barry Bonds homerun ball #715 started this afternoon on eBay. The bidding starts at $10,000. The last Barry Bonds “milestone” ball (#700) went for $804,129 back in October 2004. Something tells me that this ball won’t go for anywhere near that amount. My prediction: $50,000. In unrelated news, Mr. Bonds turned 42 (!) today.7/25 Update:
The bidding is off to a very slow start. 6 bids so far and the latest offer is only $11,500.
OK, so much for my prediction. 42 bids now and the price is up to $125K with 8 days left on the auction.
I had a great time at the Giants game Saturday night. A warm summer night and the Giants won their fifth straight and moved into first place in the NL West, a half game ahead of the Padres. How long will it last??? More photos here.
Well, that didn’t last very long. Three straight losses, two blown saves from Blownitez in the last three games and the Giants are now in third place, three games behind the Padres. Argh!
