    That's just great.

    In other news, Andres Torres hit a home run for the Mets against the Phillies.

    I'm watching the Giants-Dodgers game with MLB.TV. Vin Scully happens to mention the Giants lack of patience at the plate. I believe the team should work on being more patient hitters like the Mets, drawing walks and two-out hits.

    Here's an example from Mets catcher Mike Nickeas:

        That's a situation hitting issue and that falls on hitting coach Hensley Meullens. I believe Meullens should be fired immediately and replaced with Will Clark.

        • The real Barry Zito showed up today in Milwaukee as he allowed 8 runs in the first two innings. The Giants lost 8-5.

          • Got to give Sabean and Co. some props. Melky Cabrera has been huge so far this season. He's only 27 and looks like a real keeper.

              To be fair Wags, the Giants defense was poor again, half those runs were unearned.

                I know it's not even June yet, but YOWZA, the Melk Man can play

                  Wasn't one of the errors in the Brewers' 6-run first inning a throwing error by Zito?

                    Yeah, he was just looking to keep his era down.

                    • I thought I throw this out there with the Giants' struggling offense. Should they give AAA prospect Roger Kieshnick a shot? He's pounding the ball at Fresno, hitting .333/.407/.656, 13 HR, 33 RBI, 43 R, 12 doubles, 23 BB, 52 K. Yeah, the PCL ia hitter's league and he's never been this good in the lower minors, and he's still striking out a ton. His AAA stats come to an MLE of .285/.347/.530. The Giants could sure use a hitter like that. I wonder if Sabean is even considering calling up Kieshnick?

                          What the heck happened to Torres? He's hitting .208/.347/.289?!!

                          • The Giants are actually 10th in the NL in runs scored, only nine runs behind the #5 team. The Giants have scored the second most runs on the road but are second to last in home scoring.

                            Giants scoring
                            4.72 R/G (road)
                            3.35 R/G (home)

                            What gives?

                                He's been hurt and getting sporadic playing time. He got hurt on opening day and missed more than a few games.
