Down By The Bay: Free Agency? Not A Big Deal Here ...

New, 3 comments

Good morning everyone. Before I get started, a quick note. Be sure to tune into KTRB 860-AM's A's pregame show at 2:30 p.m. today -- our editor, Fooch, will be on talking about our little site here, SB Nation Bay Area! So that's cool, make sure you tune in! Beyond that ...

After the jump is all you need to know when it comes to the A's, Giants, 49ers, Raiders, Warriors, Sharks and all of Bay Area sports is laid in front of you by myself, as per our team specific blogs. So jump when I say jump ... jump.

Giants: Well, as usual there's the post-game thread over at McCovey Chronicles, or you can get into discussion on what it will be like without Bengie on the team - alternatively, you can head over to the confirmation post and talk about what it IS like without Bengie. Good stuff. I'll take the sweep at the hands of the Dodgers for this.

A's: They had a bad loss yesterday, because it was a close loss. The A's were winning and playing well, only to have the life sucked out of them in a single inning. So they won't be sweeping the series, but at least everything didn't look bad for them like some other Bay Area team ... either way, head over to Athletics Nation and their post-game thread/recap and share your thoughts.

Sharks: Ivano at Fear the Fin campaigns valiantly for Anton Volchenkov. While such a prospect would make me wet my pants in utter joy (I believe this is the second day in a row I've referenced wetting my pants ... I apologize), I'm not too sure (as some people mentioned in the comments) that San Jose will have the cap room. For more on the NHL free agency and what the Sharks gameplan should be, check out their cheat sheet.

49ers: Fans at Niners Nation professed their confidence level in Alex Smith. It's a debate that's been going on for some time now. Is this his year? A 'Caption This' was also posted, asking users to provide a caption for one of Niners Nation's most notorious images. And to finish, a profile of TE Delanie Walker was posted on the front page as well.

Raiders: Silver and Pride brings up a point I'm still debating in my head - Should (could) Jim Otto's image be used in the NFL logo? Or at least in A NFL logo? It's an interesting thought, he certainly fits the profile I'd imagine.  They also look at the offensive lineman who are trying to make the cut to be on the final 53-man roster.

Cal: They've got a very comprehensive and up-to-date recruiting board. No seriously, the word "comprehensive" doesn't do this beast justice - go check it out.
