Post-Game Recap: Giants keep rolling

Aubrey Huff might not be as slow as I thought, but danged if he doesn't look as if he's going to lose control of his bowels and crumple into a heap after running about 270 feet.

The Yankees can keep all of those fleeting moments of transient glory they call "championships." Those things don't last. If the Yankees really wanted to make their mark on the game, they'd sprinkle fringe swingmen and fifth starters across both leagues. Brian Burres, Carlos Villanueva, Pat Misch, Clay Hensley, Matt Palmer...and that's not even getting into the fringe bullpen arms, a dozen of whom are in Toronto's bullpen right now.

That's how you make a difference. You can keep your championships, New York. The Giants are going to put their stamp on the league for a lot longer. They're kind of like this guy, but impregnating the league with fringe arms instead.

Ahem.

The Giants won again, but I'm not sure how they did it. Which isn't to say that they eked out a win -- they just scored nine runs quietly, if that's possible. They walked, they hit singles, they hit doubles, there was a home run...it was as if they were an actual major league offense. It was just so danged efficient.

Fun facts: Did you know that this was the first time that Bengie Molina has reached base five times in the same game as a Giant? Hard to believe, but it's true. Good game, Bengie.

Other fun fact: Last year, Juan Uribe didn't get his fourth walk of the year until June 7th. It's just a wee bit early, but there's a chance that Hensley Meulens is, in fact, made of magic. The Giants should ink him to a ten-year deal, just in case.
