Back from Italy

Out of the country for 2 1/2 weeks, and I miss... nothing? Thie boys were 9-9 while their division turned from a textbook example of parity to a cartoon exaggeration of parity.

Just so I'm up to speed... we're still reserving most of our bile for the third baseman with the slugging percentage of .483 (and not the rest of the team at .406) and the closer with the 2.21 ERA (and not the rest of the bullpen at 4.98 ERA), right? Although it sounds like Benitez is making it harder and harder to defend him.

Oh, and I must admit that I would have been upset to learn that I was out of the country for the Giants' first no-hitter in thirty years. I didn't hear about Cain's effort for nearly a week, but if I jinxed him through a mysterious manifestation of international karma, you all have my sincere apologies.
