Baseball's a fluky game. One day the hits are falling in, and the next they're getting caught. There's no mystery to it. So it doesn't make a lot of sense to pin too much importance on the random changes the Giants have made.

I mean, you can if you want to.



Maybe I will.

But I'd also like to take a second to welcome last year's Jeremy Affeldt back. He's a little sheepish, and he knows he did wrong, but we forgive you. Nice job.

That strange, sticky substance all around you? Momentum. I hope.
