                        ryan sadowski makes his major league debut today against the brewers, replacing jonathan sanchez's spot in the rotation.
                        (sanchez has been moved into the bullpen.)

                        the giants become the 30th team this season to use a sixth starter.

                          Panda's second one yesterday was ridiculous. Kid golfed a low and in slider than nobody but maybe Vlad would have swung at!

                          I didn't expect him to hit for this much power. I just hope he stays within himself and not start going for the big fly all the time.

                            I dont care who is the replacement

                            sanchez had to take a breather

                            FINALLY!

                              I'd rather see them send Sanchez to the minors to work as a starter.

                                Typical Sanchez, he walks the first guy, then strikes out the side in the 9th!
