    A.J. Hinch with the anti-LaRussa today.

    In a 2-0 game, he pulled Lance McCullers after 6.2 (0 runs) for Chris Devenski. After Devenski finished the 7th and 8th innings with 1 hit and 4 strikeouts, rather than go to the closer, he sent Devenski back out there for a 2.1 inning save.

    And yesterday he pitched his "closer" in the 8th inning and the "set-up reliever" in the 9th because of the matchups. It's only the start of year 3 for him and he's already one of my favorite managers/coaches of all time.

    Probably. Wasn't it Jeff Kent who lied about getting injured doing something dumb several years back because he had a clause in his?

    Said he was washing his truck but was doing wheelies up and down the street. Though I think that was just a shame thing.

    Hey, it's hard to keep up with the Giants when you live in the Bay Area.

    Bumgarner is a pretty obscure guy. Not like he was the star of a significant World Series team or anything.

    Ron Gant was involved in a motorcycle accident just prior to the '94 season and was traded to Cincinnati a year later.

    Forgetting what hand the guy throws with is not exactly on the same level as not knowing who the reigning cy winner is. I've forgotten which hand notable pitchers throw with before too.

    After losing their ace who may or may not be left-handed, the Giants gave up an inside-the-park home run.

    ...and now that I watch the highlight it should have been a four-base error.

    Taz, what were the crowds like when you were at Yankee Stadium? The lower seats looked kind of sparse.
