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.
Great win for the Giants yesterday, seriously. McCovey Chronicles had a fake postgame thread(which in itself was a real place to discuss the game) and then once Grant got home and watched the game, a real postgame thread which is awesome.

Ugly loss for the Sharks, though. They've got some issues they need to address on the defensive side of the puck. Fear The Fin had a postgame thread and recap. Not every goalie can be Nabby. They need to give Niemi some help.

The Warriors picked up a loss as well yesterday, but it wasn't nearly as bad a loss as the Sharks had. Golden State Of Mind has their postgame link dump, which I've found to be a pretty valuable resource. Pretty puzzled as to why the team can't win on the road. Playing pretty good at home though, good sign.
Niners Nation took a look at the 49ers draft picks for this season and how they're performing thus far. On top of that, they did bring back their Mike Singletary approval rating. It's important not to keep those things going through five straight losses, they won't add much to the conversation. It's only a good time for approval ratings when there can be a disparity.
Silver And Black Pride took a look at steps to take to fix the Raiders. Seems like a daunting task, kind of like fixing the 49ers. Bay Area professional football is miserable right now. Then, they took a little reality check over there.
