A Giant Sucking Sound: Still 13 games under

The Giants have won 9 of their last 11, including a sweep of the visiting Milwaukee Brewers. Of course, before that, they were 3-12 during Aug. 1-15, so don’t get too excited. They’re still 13 games under .500.

The home stand continues tonight with an opener against the Colorado Rockies and their Rookie-of-the-Year candidate Troy Tulowitzki who, among other exploits, performed an unassisted triple play earlier this year, giving rise to the short-lived nickname “Three-lowitzki.” Then, to make sure he had ’em all, he threw to first, giving rise to the even shorter-lived nickname “Four-lowitski.”

Meanwhile, remember that player-to-be-named-later we were supposed to get from the Dodgers for Mark Sweeney?

He has been revealed to be 22-year-old Travis Denker, an outfielder who hit .398 at AA this year.

Meanwhile, how’s Sweeney been doing? He’s 3-15 since joining the Dodgers. Ha ha!

And speaking of the Dodgers, Jeff Kent got beaned Sunday.

It’s not nice to cheer that.
