And a few DFAs to make me feel better. Madison Bumgarner was outstanding and the Giants won a game. They also cut ties with Aaron Rowand and Miguel Tejada. Both moves were overdue. In Rowand's case, the Giants are on the hook for his 2012 $13.6M.
Hope springs eternal in baseball. The Giants are still contenders despite the injuries and poor play. Last year the Giants gave up 50 runs in the month of September. Fifty. Total. That was in 26 games. Imagine if they do that again.
