Another one bites the dust

Man, whatever good luck the Giants had last year in avoiding injuries hasn't visited the team this year. Posey, Sandoval, Torres, Ross, Fontenot, DeRosa. I'm not including Zito since that actually worked out by giving a starting slot to the Amazing Ryan Vogelsong.

A truly bittersweet walkoff win tonight as Freddy Sanchez goes down with a separated shoulder. Freddy's made a convert out of me. I had thought of him as a brittle guy dining off the past glory of a 2006 batting title but his solid performance last year (once he got over the offseason surgery) won me over. It's a damn shame. Carl Steward's game story for the Merc-News points out that, unfortunately, the injury was to Freddy's right shoulder.

But how about that Vogelsong kid? Wow.
