Down by the Bay is a daily catch-up of Bay Area sports action from the previous day. It's here on SB Nation Bay Area every morning at the same time, and it's the first thing you should be reading to catch up on the San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders, San Francisco Giants, Oakland A's, San Jose Sharks and Golden State Warriors. After the jump is all you need to know, so make it and let's get to it. When I say jump, jump. So, uh, jump, right now.
The Giants won their game yesterday. Just another one of those meaningless games, right? Except it wasn't. It was greatness. NLCS, baby. McCovey Chronicles has a postgame thread for your perusal. And then they had a post-postgame thread for ... further perusal. And then after that, a post-post-postgame thread. God.

Niners Nation took a look at this 49ers team in comparison to the 2009 Titans team that started 0-6 and finished 8-8. They then examined Frank Gore's struggles. Personally, I feel like there's enough left in the tank, but things aren't going well with any facet of the 49ers right now.
Silver and Black Pride took a look at the Raiders and their propensity for playing it safe, and why that's a bad thing. After that, a look back at their recent victory over the Chargers. What a victory it was, still can't believe it.
