Heading home to play games that count... soon.
Jeremy Affeldt to the DL? Mano... Dreamy Dan Runzler has a little opening now, he goes with Hembree, Cordier and The Law up to The City to play the Fightin' A's. Most likely this cements the Huff-Meister's chance at the 25, and that was already looking good.
My twitter machine tells me that Guillermo Quiroz gets the trip as well. Hector Sanchez just walked them off (suck it haters), so its most likely the usual Bochy security blanket/jinx deal-i-o. And check out Big Chris Dominguez getting the invite as well. Apparently another maligned slugger with huge contact issues, one Jarrett Parker, hit a grand salami today to dead red center. I am guilty of maligning. Sorry Jarrett.
In the way of The Law is one JC Gutierrez, who is fighting the good fight. One of those two have the edge over the long shot of Hembree/Runzler doing something dramatic. And Juan Perez must have the upper hand, his glove and arm are just too great, he has some good pop to boot.
Giants got through ST pretty OK. We always have to have a middle infielder, a veteran, earning about 6MM a year, injured. Its in the by-laws. And Jeremy Affeldt is injured? Shocked! Shocked!
But the Dodgers are holding their breath tonight. Kershaw has a back flare up, went for an MRI and is scratched. Hope its nothing. I really like that Kershaw guy, and I want the Dodgers to be at their best... and then destroy them.
Draft news, it isn't good... well, it is good... but not for the Giants. TOUKI! Pitched well...
We can hope for some wildness that scares teams off, drops him down. But big time players usually make their own luck. I imagine he will do that.
