    Seems to be a lot of that going around in the NL West...

    The Giants shockingly send LaMonte Wade back to AAA. Wade was batting .265/.344/.470 with a 125 OPS+, but he had options remaining, so off he goes.

    Now at the all-star break and the Giants have the best record (57-32) in all of baseball. It may be time to start taking this team seriously.

    Bad loss for the Giants tonite. Leading 6-1 going into the bottom of the 5th, the Dodgers score 4 over 2 innings. Tyler Rogers comes on in the 9th leading 6-5, walks the 1st two on 9 pitches and gives up a walkoff HR to Will Smith. The good news is the Giants still have the best record in baseball, but now LA is only 2 games back.

    I just can't see the current Giants roster will outlast the Dodger or Padres given the fact both LA and SD have endured more inquires to date and that both LA and SD are prepared to go over the Luxury tax to get better at the deadline.

    If the Giants are buyers, I'd be pounding down their door, They have several primo prospects that they can afford to deal. So do the Dodgers, but you've gotta need a catcher...

    The Giants are reportedly trying to trade for Starling Marte.

    Dodgers had a chance to tie the Giants for 1st tonite. All they needed was a clean 9th inning from Jansen but he got only 1 out and allowed 5 baserunners and 3 runs and the Giants came back to win, 4-2.

    Tonight, the Giants scored 4 runs in the ninth off of Kenley Jansen to win it 5-3. Wow!
