Unlikely, unbelievable, unfathomable, undeniable….
You see where I’m headed here. The Giants swept the Rockies out of town, coming back from a seventh inning, three-run deficit because of the unlikeliest of unlikely heroes, Mr. Edgar Renteria. Renteria’s grand slam wasn’t a walkoff like Spilborghs in Colorado, but it sure tasted good.
UPDATE: How about a pennant-drive pickup that matters?
…. White Sox GM Kenny Williams called teams this afternoon to let them know a large part of their roster is available in trade, including sluggers Jermaine Dye, Paul Konerko and Jim Thome and veteran relievers Scott Linebrink and Octavio Dotel.
Dye has 25 home runs and 50 walks, the two things, as you all know, that the Giants need more than anything. He’d be owed about 15% of his $12 million dollar salary, about, what, $3 million? Apparently, we just picked up Brad Penny, because we need walks and home runs. Oh, that’s right, Penny gives up tons of walks and home runs, so there’s always that.
