Can anyone play this game?

That, of course, is the immortal phrase uttered by Casey Stengel about the 1962 Mets, who went on to lose 120 games, while winning only 40 for a .250 winning percentage. That's how badly this current Giants team is playing. With tonight's 4-0 loss to the Padres, the Orange and Black are now 2-7 for a .222 winning percentage, which would project out to a final record of 36-126.

Hopefully, Bonds will remember how to hit again in Pittsburgh. Right now, the only regular who seems to be hitting with any kind of regularity is Benjie Molina, who is 9 for 28 with five doubles so far.

The 1962 Mets actually had one pretty good player -- Frank Thomas, who hit 34 HRs and had 94 RBIs.

So what has the Giants front office done in 2007? Sent down Kevin Frandsen, who's had a grand total of one at bat, to make room for Mark Sweeney, who was pretty useless last year. I'd love to see the team take a chance on Nate Schierholtz, who's tearing up the PCL with 10 hits in 21 ABs, including 3 HRs and 8 RBIs.

Fresno is doign so well, everyone on the Grizzlies is tearng up the PCL. I'd rather them bring up Fred Lewis than Scheierholtz.
