I’m a man of few words today. Maybe Miguel Montero could learn a lesson from me.

  • It’s an odd-numbered year, so we expected the GIants to be down this season. But no one expected them to be this far down. Ken Rosenthal has a look at the problems of the team inside the clubhouse, where the Giants don’t seem to have the same comradery that they had in their title seasons. Rosenthal reports on how new closer Mark Melancon hasn’t fit in with the rest of the team, although no one dislikes him. Maybe that’s the problem, because the quote from this piece that is getting all the attention is:

Some with the Giants muse that the team even misses Angel Pagan, who created an odd sort of unity because most of the players disliked him.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.
