So Timmy threw a no hitter? Wow. I wish I could have seen that, it must have been very exciting. I heard about it yesterday evening in the Cutthroat Bar in Markleeville, CA. We were up in Yosemite for a couple of days.
It was stunning. Even though I get there, if not every year, at least every couple of years, you always forget just how grandiose and beautiful it is. The Giants, Tim's no-hitter excepted, seemed to have played some pretty shitty baseball. We dropped another series to San Diego and have now guaranteed that we will not will a series against the Reds. San Diego, if I need to remind anyone, is not a very good team. Yet they are now 5 - 4 against the amazingly-still-in-first-place Giants. Madbum was on the mound tonight. Of course, the disaster of a fifth inning happened just as I parked the car at home and before I got the radio on. So I don't really know how it unfolded and haven't bothered to check. Cueto pretty much cut threw the Giants' lineup like a hot knife through butter. Tim's no hitter has been sandwiched between four games of crap by the other starters.
