Raise a Glass to the Trailer Park in the Sky!

RIP Shooter Beck

"Shooter was a hard nosed, blue-collar kind of guy that wore his heart on his sleeve, and that is what made him so endearing to baseball fans everywhere. He was the utmost professional whose love for the game was only overshadowed by his passion for his family. Rod was the guy who you wanted in the foxhole with you, a warrior on the field and a teddy bear at home."

- Rick Thurman, Beck's longtime agent

I'm Barry Bonds and I Approve This Message

Stop what you're doing right now, head on over to sfgiants.com and vote for your favorite members of the Giants to start the All-Star game. Considering the game is being played in San Francisco this year, I think its only fair that the Giants have about 8 or 9 players make the All-Star team. Barring that, it would be nice to see at least one member of the Giants elected to the starting lineup.

The latest update shows Alfonso Soriano moving past Barry Bonds for third place among National League Outfielders.


Bonds 177
Soriano 138


Bonds .365
Soriano .311

The deadline to cast ballots is Thursday, June 28 at 8:59 PM. Vote early, vote often!
