Hello, omen...

I don't remember what year it was, 1997 or '98 or something close.  The Detroit Tigers held an exhibition against its triple-A affiliate - it seems like it happened during the season - and got waxed.  The score was like 18-3.  I'm not going to look it up.  I was so bad, the score made the Sportscenter scores, back when they actually showed something resembling in-depth highlights and box scores.  Well your 2008 San Francisco Giants last night fell to your 2008 Giants affiliate Fresno Grizzlies, 4-3.  Of course, it wasn't as bad as that Tiger game, and anything can happen on any given Wednesday night in baseball.  But.  Really, it says something about the team the Grizzlies are putting on the field this season.  The bus between San Francisco and Fresno will be mighty busy, not solely because of injuries, but because many of the players in Fresno are AAAA players, ready to replace many of the Giants' AAAA regulars.

But at least Ray Durham was in the lineup because, well, he's such a huge part of the future. Is the "All Out. All Season" slogan rendered meaningless when you see Durham missing games because of "migrane," and "flu-like symptoms?" What about "Ovarian Cyst?" I can't wait to see that on Durham's injury report.

I wouldn't feel that bad...Mike Miller must have pitched well. He's ok sometimes...
