Its kind of amazing how little I care about what happens to the Giants when they have to play all the way in CANADA of all places. The toronto series has been a complete afterthought for me... we did manage to salvage the last game of this series after dropping the last two.
In classic Giants style, Barry Zito and Matt Cain did great jobs respectively and got the loss, while Jonathan Sanchez was knocked out in the 3rd for his shortest outing of the year, and we ended up winning...
However, at the request of some readers I've decided to go into a less baseball related topic and into aesthetics.. mainly: Who is the *CUTEST* Giant (shoot me now...)
Here are some of the candidates that have been proposed recently:
okay.. not a horrible choice. I can see how girls are goin for the "latin lover" thing...
Most athletic guy on the Giants, bilingual
Not rich (career minor leaguer)
Also, I will not ridicule, he's not a bad looking guy, nice enough, won a 2 time all star and has a bunch of money saved up
Honest,hardworking, nice disposition
That connect the dot thing going on, on his face...
Really? ... this guy? as my friend Jeff would say, Nate is probably the most normal looking guy on the team. He's completely featureless, no color. At least he's got a cannon for an arm.
Rocket arm, safe
Boring, quiet, receding hairline.
Personally, if I'm talking in a purely competitive standpoint. I wouldn't want to stand next to Barry if I'm at a club trying to pick up girls. He has money, cars, and now a resurgent career. He's got some pretty high profile ex's too (alyssa milano, hillary duff)
Uber Rich (7 years $126 million), Philanthropist (founder of Strikeouts for Troops), Musician
Weird (collects stuffed animals), Parents were hippies so he acts accordingly..
Eli Whiteside - nah he's got all gray hair
Brian Wilson - just a tatooed meat head
Travis Ishikawa - I would have included him but he barely plays anymore
Buster Posey - too young
Tim Lincecum - too gangly
Alright girls, what do you think? I think Barry wins out as the most sensible choice here. Heck for $126 million I'd date him too... maybe...
Laws of the Day
Giants completed their first win in an AL park today beating the Blue Jays 9-6
Getting Support: Giants have scored 40 runs in the last 5 starts by Jonathan Sanchez who has posted a 3-1 record in that span.
