Hello and happy Tuesday.

It’s been two days since the San Francisco Giants were eliminated. And while they deserve the brunt of the blame for that, it sure felt like they were on the receiving end of a truly horrendous strike zone.

But now that we’ve had two days to cool off from the frustrating game, we can say that ... yes, it was, indeed, a truly horrendous strike zone.

Rob Drake, everyone!

Well OK then. Tomorrow I’ll work on calming acceptance.


Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

We’re nearing the end of seasons past, but yes. He did.

September 29, 1999: Against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 1st inning off of Kevin Brown, scoring Bill Mueller. It gave the Giants a 2-0 lead, and they would win 5-1 (beat LA). It was his 34th homer of the year.

September 29, 2001: Against the San Diego Padres, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 6th inning off of Chuck McElroy. It gave the Giants a 2-1 lead, and they would win 3-1. It was his 69th homer of the year.
