Hello and happy Tuesday.

During Monday night’s game against the Houston Astros, San Francisco Giants catcher Chadwick Tromp committed a costly catcher’s interference. It was his first of the season, but the fourth that the Giants have had, as Tyler Heineman has a trio of the errors.

Just how bad is that?

Here’s how bad: The four catcher’s interferences that the Giants have committed this year is more than Buster Posey has had in his entire career.

The Giants have played 18 games this year. Posey has played 987 career games at the catcher position.

Oh.

And, not surprisingly, the Giants are trying to lap the field when it comes to this dubious category.

Well... at least they’re number one at something?


Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

Yes.

August 11, 2001: Against the Chicago Cubs, Bonds hit a 3-run home run in the 2nd inning off of Joe Borowski, scoring Livan Hernandez and Rich Aurilia. It gave the Giants a 6-0 lead, and they would win 9-4. It was his 50th homer of the year.
