The man who took over for Jeff Kent and had a dynamic second half of the 2003 season…

The man who crushed a grand slam off of Kerry Wood on July 30th, 2003 to power the Giants to victory…

The man who batted .529 with an OPS of 1.320 in the 2003 Division Series against Florida…

And the first player in New York or San Francisco Giants history to wear such an unlucky uniform on his back..


Let’s see the Giants stay in first place for more than a few days.

Jayson’s Werth

Remember how at the Trade Deadline it was a foregone conclusion that Jayson Werth was going to be dealt for bullpen help. He is going to be a free agent and hey! Domonic Brown would take over in right field. He got uniform #9… just like Roy Hobbs.

I wonder if anyone was thinking that today when Werth clubbed that 2 run walk off 9th inning shot in Philly.

Forget bullpen help… Werth closed the game out himself.

That coupled with Brad Lidge finding himself and this could have been the best trade the Phillies DIDN’T make.

I think it is time to forgive them for the Cliff Lee deal.
Brown could wind up with a ring at the end of the year anyway.

Big series against Atlanta this week. I am guessing Werth will come up big.

See Luke Scott’s face?

This is the face of a man who knows that he just hit a game tying 9th inning homer off of Mariano Rivera.

This is the face of a man who knows that no matter what bar or family barbecue he ever goes to, he will have the COOLEST story.

Game tying shot off a certain Hall of Famer putting up awesome numbers?

If I hit a homer like that, it would be on my business card.
Hell, it would be how I preface a sentence.

“As a man who hit a game tying shot off of Mariano Rivera… I will have these shirts light starch and on hangers.”
