For the birds: Gull struck by winning hit | MLB.com: News

Not Giants-related, but pretty funny. Bonus: The bird was alright.

Greg Minton Statistics and History - Baseball-Reference.com

BaseballAmerica.com: Catching Up With Tommy Joseph

Tommy Joseph love from DRaysBay readers

Draft Reactions Around the Blogosphere - Beyond the Box Score

The Giants make a Cinderella bid for the playoffs | Dodger Thoughts | Los Angeles Times

Jon Weisman looks at the Giants, unintentionally reminds me of "Spinderella" from Salt 'N' Pepa. I have a ton of respect for Weisman and his blog, even though his choice of team is painfully misguided, but I'm not sure about his ability to evaluate movies.
