Sounds like BP is buying the spin (like most of us are). Fluky bad year for the pitching and a full off-season of rest for key players should lead to much better results. *Sigh* Baseball needs to start like..now

Besides the outdoor mall part, the current plan works for me. While it may not be the opportune location for housing, the city is in need of more of it. If they limit it to just a small shopping center (with a supermarket and some restaurants) so that the area could be somewhat self-sustaining then it should be ok.
Though i agree there should be some statues or at least a plaque or something that mentions some of the historical events that happened during the Candlestick days.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Okay, so what would YOU put at Candlestick Point?
@WarninTracPwr (As mentioned in article) they were there to catch people being too rowdy and rough and the best way was to dress up in enemy colors. I'd like to think they picked some officers who didn't have any particular allegiances either way cuz that would suck if you were a diehard but had to wear Seattle gear

I really only listen to the radio stuff on my drives to and from work. To work I can't stand radnich so i listen to the last hour of 95.7 but on the way back i'm all about Mr. T over Bucher and Towney.
For a while i was a convert to 95.7 since they had fewer commercials and i knew when to turn back to them (instead of getting the sports minute or the update and then going to another block of commercials). However, the rigidity started to wear on me. I like when Mr. T and Ray go off on tangents that have nothing to do with sports but are just guy topics. Makes it more real like two guys shooting the sh*t at a bar.

You missed the most important tidbit to come out of all this "need for back-up center talk." The Warriors got so desperate they tried to convince Scalabrine to come out of retirement.
WHITE MAMBA! (and yes i'm totally kidding but that would've been awesome)

I remember hearing the comment about the Home Run Tracker during the game. That one definitely made me LOL (and then cry and rewatch Pablo's 3 WS Game 1 HRs)

I liked pensive Harbaugh actually. They need to do a side by side with pensive and arguing-non-call Harbaugh. That's some Bruce Banner/The Hulk stuff right there.
4 months, 2 weeks ago on Jim Harbaugh was on fire yesterday, and we have the GIFs to prove it
I agree with Schulman, particularly if the Giants can't QO him again. If he can build off of a good year next year on the QO, then he could be in line for a decent pay day on the other end and the Giants won't have to enter that bidding war since our farm arms could be ready (or close to ready) by then

I would take Harbaugh. I think he would scrap and not go down easy. At the very least, if he channels some of the SB rage then look out for him.

The uniform/taunting/celebration fines are a little too much in my mind. The uniform violations are for pretty bogus things (if i remember correctly, they were like wrong-colored socks) and the taunting/celebration takes some of the energy out of the game if the players can't do it.

I wonder what the market for Lincecum will be. Esp with the Giants saying they'll QO him.

Oh and F- all the Belt Bashers!

I think the most frustrating part of this season is what it could've been. This doesn't have the same disappointment of 2011 (mostly because its easy to just point to Buster Posey getting hurt and/or Beltran doing Beltran things too late as the reason). However this year felt like we could be poised for another good run given the elements we had.
When everything hit the fan at once, there was always those glimmers of hope (hey the NL West sucks, "LOL Dodgers" for a while, we just need insert-player-name to come around) but as the storm went from a week to a month to now close to two months of crap, its hard to see that same WS team even though they're still mostly there....but they're not also. Always feel like its two steps forward, one step back.
TL;DR: Team with all the tools for WS 2013 run turned into ClusterF-k 2013
Go with Pence. OF market probably will be lean and we have some SP coming up through the pipeline.
7 months, 1 week ago on Lincecum or Pence – if you could only bring back one, who would you choose? (contest post)
Let him pitch it out and then buy him out at the end of the year. If anything, it might help us get a better draft pick/put us in the bottom 10 and then we can sign QO free agents w/o having to give up a first rounder.
7 months, 1 week ago on What should the Giants do with Barry Zito? (contest post)
I wouldn't go into major sell mode. I would definitely dangle Lopez and maybe even Pence but to go into fire-sale mode would be crazy. We need to be targeted with the prospects we get back (high level minor league SP, OF's). The West should be winnable for the foreseeable future (even with the Dodgers deciding to print their own Dodger Dollars to pay for players) and if all our pieces round back to even their career averages, we should stand to compete for the next few seasons still.

Either Timmy No-Hitter (#5) or 2012 WS (#3). Not sure what tickles me more, the unbridled joy between Romo and Posey as Romo finishes gangnam-styling and then gets smashed by Posey with the hug or the back hug and lift that snaps Timmy into reality that "OMGWTFBBQ!!!" i just thew a no-hitter.
