Found July 26, 2012 on RotoStars.com:
The jury is still out on whether or not San Francisco Giants third baseman, Pablo Sandoval, will go on the disabled list.  According to multiple reports, that decision will come on Friday before the Giants open up a weekend series against their arch nemesis, the Los Angeles Dodgers. Sandoval apparently suffered a hamstring strain against the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night, which an MRI did confirm earlier this week. Sandoval is no stranger to injury this season.  He disappointed fantasy owners earlier in the year when he missed six weeks of action due to injury. In his 62 games played this season, Sandoval is batting .299 with 8 homers and 33 RBI.  Owners everywhere will be anticipating the Giants decision tomorrow.

Worldy Games

The San Francisco Giants and AT&T Park get to host the finals of the World Baseball Classic.  But that doesn’t change what the WBC is: a lame makeup to Major League Baseball being unable to get it’s chops together and getting kicked out of the Olympics.  It (along with softball) became the first sport removed form the Olympics since Polo in 1936. Why did this happen? ...

Postgame Wrap: Dodgers Finally Score, Giants Call For Backup

Coming into tonight’s game, there were only two ways for this series to end: either the Dodgers win it all and end up tied for first place, or the Giants win it and take a nice, comfortable six-game lead in the standings.

Daily Friar 7.25.12

Every time we play the Giants it has a playoff atmosphere to it. I get that vibe especially when we are playing in San Francisco. I don't know if it's the sold out crowds or what, but it feels like a playoff game every time. Those people up there live and die with every pitch it seems, they go crazy for a base hit even. But that place really exploded when Angel Pagan stole...
