Clash of the Titans

Who knew the Padres coming to San Francisco would be a matchup of the NL West's hottest teams? The Padres and Giants are both doing it with pitching. The Cardinals are tops in FIP (3.36), with our boys (3.47) right behind and the Friars (3.65) in third place. Which means, of course, we are in for some 10-9 slugfests! SF and SD are tied for the NL lead in runs allowed with 97 (Tampa Bay has only allowed 94.)

Barry Zito goes tomorrow against Wade LeBlanc and Matt Cain sees Clayton Richard on Wednesday. I'm not sure why there's a TBA for Thursday--I expect we'll see Jonathan Sanchez, don't you?

Let's hope that if the Giants are able to throw another one hitter that they can come out with a victory.

I think someone ows David Eckstein a beaning for being small and anoying.

I still havn't gotten the bad taste out of my mouth from that horrible trip to pet store park. It is a house of horrors, it would feel good to get some revenge.

Yeah, we owe them a good thumping!
