Well, so much for Pablo Sandoval coming off the DL and giving the team a spark. He comes into tonight 15 for 58 since his return, with 3 doubles, 6 runs scored, and 3 RBI. His batting average was at .313, it's now at .259.

Aubrey Huff, even though it seems like he's had a decent June, in fact, he's simply vanished. He had 4 home runs in 5 at bats on the

1st and the 2nd of the month. Since then, he's had 4 doubles, 1 triple, 21 singles, and made well over 70 outs. His season, essentially a worse case scenario, has resulted in a .242/.294/.380 .674 OPS, which is killing the team, by the way, since he's hitting at the top of the order every day.

Andres Torres has disappeared as well. A disgusting .205/.326/.308 .634 OPS for the month of June is pretty much putting him on a path to the broadcast booth.

I can't for the life of me see how this team is winning games.

Right now, I get to listen to Krukow telling me that Lincecum and Dempster are locked in a pitcher's duel. Yeah, that's Ryan Dempster, who came into tonight's game 5-6 with a 5.07 ERA.

UPDATE: Heading into the ninth, Dempster has retired 20 consecutive Giants.

UPDATE: Burriss absolutely has to go on that bloop. The mindset has to be that we're not gonna get another chance. What a wasted opportunity.

UPDATE: There is no place for conservative base-running in that situation. There is no waiting for the next guy. Get doubled off second. You can see it's an out or a hit. You have to be coached to see that, and you have to chance it. And so, they lost. Just as I said yesterday, they didn't save any runs for Lincecum, and they lost a game they should have won.
