  1. Nice situational usage by Melvin. Doesn’t he know that Cheo kills lefties?

  2. Insult to injury. Byrnes gets a dbl hit in his corner.

  3. 99 … I guess Cruz has a rally cap! :-)

    101 … “Cheo”?

  4. 100: You didn’t see the Byrnes tyraid? He went off on the base coach and then threw a tantrum in the dugout.

  5. C’mon boys, only chasing 3…

  6. 103: See 4sd.com/blog… Cheo is the nickname for guys named Jose

  7. So much for that rally.

  8. #100: Byrnes got a horrible jump on a stolen base attempt and was thrown out easily at second. As he came off the field, he had words for the third-base coach, slammed his helmet and punched a water cooler or two.

  9. 104 … I’m “watching” on yahoo … I’m in Oregon … haven’t the bandwidth &/or $ for mlb.tv …

    103 … I s’pose “Cheo” is aka “Jose” … http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheo_Feliciano … as in, in this case, Cruz …

  10. 64 … Germano got the W tonight for the Beavers … with 7 nice IP …

  11. Looks like Buddy is saving up middle relievers to go against L.A. this weekend.

  12. Did Matty just say “The bottom of the top of the 9th?’

  13. KG needs a base hit here for his streak.

  14. Damn, another hitting streak dies in Arizona. :-(

    At least the Dodgers have let the Giants tie up the game.

  15. Prediction: Blum flies to left.

  16. Geoff “White Flag” Blum is up.

  17. 115: There’s no one on first so it won’t be a grounder to 2nd

  18. #115: Dude, you’re scarin’ me.

  19. Does this make me a Swami?

  20. If the Giants win tonite, they take over first place by themselves.

    How scary is that?

  21. Ballgame. Seriously weak effort tonight.

  22. Let’s get LA! Keep the faith.

  23. 122: Agreed, they looked really legarthic tonite. We needed some fire, and we got beat on.

  24. We are now 12-10. Season runs 101-90.

  25. 125 … here’s the BP “Adjusted Standings” … http://www.baseballprospectus.com/statistics/standings.php … looks better than I expected …
