Down By The Bay: What's Going On?

Today we have bits from bot habseball teams and both football teams, but beyond that not much else. Both the A's and the Giants lost yesterday, so the Bay Area is feeling kind of down. Oh and, 49ers RB Glen Coffee announced his retirement and one has to wonder what exactly is going on in their front office. If you didn't know, Coffee is only 23 and in his second year of the league. And isn't hurt. Odd stuff.

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.

The folks over at McCovey Chronicles have decided they will all collectively up and go insane. Then they remembered they did that last year and have since decided that it's gone out of style and just reverted to the general paranoia and depression that accompanies a divisional loss. The post-game thread is right here, but it ain't pretty. 

Here are the minor lines as well, you know - just because.

About the only thing as demoralizing as the Giants loss yesterday was the A's loss. It was not a pretty sight. The A's played well, they looked good. They hit. They hit well. They hit better than their opponents but it just wasn't enough. They've got a post-game thread over at Athletics Nation, but as with McCovey Chronicles (with slightly less brain aneurysms), its ain't pretty.

Niners Nation covered the retiring of running back Glen Coffee. Yes, the retiring - for some reason, the 23-year old was compelled to leave the game of football, and it's not immediately clear why. They had their official story on the matter here, and also a 300+ post fanshot from a reader that went in an... interesting direction.

There was also the fanshot about LB Scott McKillop clearing waivers, which is a good sign for the team. On top of that, they took a look at the defensive battles that will be going down tomorrow when the 49ers play the Colts to open their preseason.

Beyond all of that, they also had a highly entertaining Caption This! post, which are some of my favorite things on these blogs, as well as a post looking at the stability at the quarterback position for the team. Feels weird to type that.

The Raiders are happy with their win, and a day removed from the win, Silver And Black Pride took a look at ten things from the game. There's an awful lot of unanswered questions, but anything that brings one closer to clarity is a good thing.
