Down By The Bay: Stop Losing, Please

Good morning folks. It's a mixed bag in Bay Area sports today (because of yesterday). The A's and Giants lost their respective games in bad ways (A's keeping it very close, Cain having a bad game). The 49ers and Raiders signed some draft picks so that's a good thing, and the Warriors did nothing to even it up by being part of a personnel issue that fans are divided on. So yeah..

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.

A's: Gotta feel bad for the folks over at Athletics Nation. The A's mounting a seemingly endless number of comebacks in this one game but still fell to the Angels 6-5. They've got a post-game thread over there.

Giants: It was a less traumatic loss for the Giants, but a loss is a loss is a loss... etc. Cain had a bad game, Strasburg had a good game, and what you get with that formula is another San Francisco Giants loss. McCovey Chronicles has the post-game thread up for your discussion.

Warriors: There's just no way Warriors fans can agree on something. That's not because they're a fanbase that enjoys arguing, it's because every move seems to have a bit of upside but also a lot of downside. They just can't seem to get something good going. Drafting Udoh is a good example. The team didn't get this horrible player, but they passed on a lot of good players and picked him far too early. Such is the same with the Anthony Morrow to Nets deal that's going down.

Sharks: Fear the Fin had their first episode of Fear The Fin Live, which I really wish I could have heard live, but I got busy with something I can't even remember at this point. Still, I'm actually about to listen to it but I expect only good things from Plank and the gang

49ers: The 49ers had some things going on yesterday, and I had a post here covering their signing of sixth round pick Nate Byham. Beyond that, at Niners Nation, they took a look at the fan's confidence in running back Anthony Dixon. I personally think he'll end up as the third running back. They also had a post in the morning about what the team'sbiggest weakness would be in 2010.

Cal: New yesterday at Calfironia Golden Blogs is some more from the "Where I Come From" segment, this one looking at memorable moments. I'm really enjoying this series of posts.

Raiders: Not a lot from Silver And Black Pride, but we did have a post here on SBN Bay Area covering the signings of Jared Veldheer and Bruce Campbell. Good progress by the team to get them under contract. I expected problems with Campbell, personally.
