                        Nice to see the Giants moving up.

                              more jeremy affeld

                              his 1.24 era (5er / 36.1ip) is 2nd in league to cardinal ryan franklin (0.76).

                              his 20 holds puts him behind only cubs pitcher carlos marmol (21) for the league lead.
