Spring Training: The Beard, the Thong, the Legend continues...

Some Spring Training odds and ends for you:

Brian Wilson has been held out of practice the last couple days from back pain. Updates from Henry Schulman and Andrew Baggerly via twitter. All indications are that it isn't anything serious, but its best to hold the beard out of practice for a few days to let him rest up.

Lincecum was out with a sore neck on Tuesday but was throwing on Wednesday and apparently looked pretty good.

Aubrey Huff reported to KNBR that he has officially retired the Rally Thong. It did its job, and its time to move on. Although I have an inkling that it'll come back if we're a couple games out of 1st place and its early September...

Another twitter update: Romo's beard requested that a mohawk soul patch be spared in case Romo decides to shave. Romo agreed.

Laws of the Day

Round trip Flights from San Francisco to Phoenix are as low as $197 on

There's a World Series Banner hanging in the clubhouse in Scottsdale.


  1. How much does it cost to see some preseason games in AZ? I know they do a bunch ever year:)
