John Bowker stays hot

The Giants hammered the Cards today, 8-2, thanks mostly to a 6-run third that wound up with Bowker hitting his third HR, a two-run shot that gives him 9 RBIs. He went one for 5, so he's now at 8 for 22. I guess this means Nate Schierholtz will be staying in Fresno for awhile longer.

The Giants have DFAd Rajai Davis and called up Emmanuel Burris, so they can have two shortstops who can't hit. Isn't this Brian Bocock in stereo? Daniel Rathman at Giants Cove isn't impressed either.

Projected Giants record is now 68-94. And the Dodgers are now in last place, thanks to a 6-1 buttkick by the Braves. Here's what the LA Times reported about Andruw Jones --

With cleanup hitter Jeff Kent taking the day off to rest his legs, Torre moved Andruw Jones from seventh in the batting order into the No. 4 slot, though the manager said the $36-million free agent would likely bat fifth or sixth in the future. Jones, who hit his first home run for the Dodgers the previous day, responded by striking out three times. He was 0 for 4, failing to get Juan Pierre home from third with one out in the eighth inning with the score still 2-1 by grounding out to short.

You will rarely get a balanced story from Daniel Rathman. He may not realize it yet, but he is a congenital whiner. I've stopped reading his completely predictable laments.
