Hello and happy Friday. I hope it’s a wonderful day.

Thursday sure was fun. Not only did the San Francisco Giants have a hit parade and earn their third straight win, but Joey Bart made his MLB debut.

He played great defense. He got on base twice. He hit a double. He had the hardest hit ball of the night.

It was grand.

But it wasn’t what he did on the diamond that made fans most excited about the future of the Giants organization. It was what he said before his debut, when he called fellow top prospects Marco Luciano, Heliot Ramos, and Alexander Canario “really freaky.”

It’s OK to be excited; it is exciting, after all.

Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

Well ... yeah.

August 21, 2003: Against the Atlanta Braves, Bonds hit a walk-off, solo home run in the 10th inning off of Trey Hodges, giving the Giants a 4-3 win. It was his 39th homer of the year, and his second walk-off home run of the series.

August 21, 2006: Against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 4th inning off of Livan Hernandez. It gave the Giants a 1-0 lead, and they would win 5-0. It was his 17th homer of the year.
