Down By The Bay: Build Me Up To Knock Me Down

Good morning everyone. Yesterday we had a couple of good baseball games, as has been the case for the last couple weeks. Even as a Giants fan who is contemplating never watching baseball ever again, I can admit it was a good day of games (and competitive eating - check the story stream) and accordingly we have some links from, at the very least, Athletics Nation and McCovey Chronicles.

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: It was a crazy game yesterday. I'm still a little numb myself, and couldn't even bear to pick up and play MLB 2K10 since a friend brought it over. The post-game thread and recap is up over at McCovey Chronicles, but don't expect cheery faces (messages).

A's: Enjoy things as they are right now, A's fans. The A's had a good win yesterday but their string of beating bad teams unmercifully can only continue so long as they play a bad team. Either way, there is cause for celebration, so head over to the post-series thread/recap and party like it's some obscure year used in "party like its..." jokes.

Warriors: There were some rumors yesterday that the team could be interested in a 3-way trade, but Golden State Of Mind made good on that post with... another post, stating that the rumors aren't true. I would not have been a fan of that trade, that's for sure. 

Sharks: Fear The Fin examines a scenario for the Sharks in the trade market. They are not done this offseason, that's for sure. A defenseman is on the way, whether he knows it or not. I do like the idea of Bieska. A very solid acquisition if the team targets him.

49ers: 49ers fans took a look at their confidence levels, as they've been doing for the past week or so, by looking at Vernon Davis and what he's likely to produce next season. He should probably be a beast again. Just sayin'.

Cal: There's no shame in being sell-outs, and there's no reason not to read a good post about fandom and where it comes from. You have to keep busy during the offseason, and I happen to find stories of fandom and the like to be particularly interesting. Do you have one?
