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 are in the World Series, in case you didn't know that. Did you know that? I heard it was a big deal. Not too sure, though, I don't think it's enough to detract me from this delicious, delicious pizza I'm eating. Just checked, nope, not a big enough deal. McCovey Chronicles tells us that Cliff Lee is good and the Rangers hitters are trash, or something. Maybe not that, I have selective reading. Don't judge me.
Head over and vote on what your approval rating is for 49ers head coach Mike Singletary. I'm guessing it won't be good. Niners Nation also took a look at one bright spot for the team, defensive end Ray McDonald. He's become a pretty decent impact player when he's in.
Life is good in Raider Nation, is it not? Silver And Black Pride has a post on the matter. Perhaps the 49ers will have their second win, considering the beatdown by the Raiders of the Broncos after losing to the Niners, no? Maybe wishful thinking.
