The Little Engine That Could couldn't quite do it today. It ran out of gas after the first inning. Ryan Vogelsong had another uncharacteristic start and the Giants never got anything going against old antagonist Clayton Richard. I'm not concerned about Vogie, everyone has ups and downs. He'll get his groove back. The lineup really looked flat, they will need to swing the bats a little better in LA. The Giants go to Chavez LAtrine down in the standings by 1/2 game, and the first man they'll face is Clayton Kershaw. Super southpaw Madison Bumgarner gets the match-up. It's crunch time, mates.
In other news, I am expecting a review copy of a DVD of Matt Cain's perfect game very soon. It's put out by A+E Networks Home Entertainment/MLB Productions, part of their "Baseball's Greatest Games" series. I don't usually do anything promotional on this site, but they contacted me about running a giveaway and I couldn't pass it up. Matt Cain! C'mon, Matt Cain. Anyway, I've got a trivia quiz put together that I'll post soon. There will be two winners and each will receive a copy of the video from A+E. Sound like fun? Details to follow.
