Down By The Bay: 49ers Active

The A's were the only team that played yesterday, but the game didn't go over so well. Beyond that, the Raiders had some practice, the Sharks and the Warriors stirred in their sleep and the 49ers had all kinds of stuff go down. Was a pretty darn active day for them, so there's a few links regarding 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.

The Giants had the day off yesterday, but McCovey Chronicles put up some posts anyway. Grant took a look at why the Jose Guillen trade makes him sad, and I'm inclined to agree on all fronts. They did exactly what he described, and the result of what they did will be exactly as described.

On top of that, they had the usual minor lines from the Giants farm.

The A's continue the trend of not being able to win a game, dropping the first game of the three-game set against the Blue Jays 3-1 and only getting one hit in the whole affair. Athletics Nation has a pretty depressing post-game thread.

 

The Niners signed running back Brian Westbrook yesterday. This comes after Glen Coffee retired, and now the running back hierarchy is pretty much set. Niners Nation had a post on the matter. On top of that, they also had a post for the press conference streaming with a bit more information.

For one, the 49ers traded defensive lineman Kentwan Balmer to the Seattle Seahawks for a sixth round pick. We had a bit about that here.

 

Things are rolling right along for the Raiders. Silver And Black Pride provided us with a weekend update, looking at notes, quotes and the like from practices over the weekend. And after that, another update on the practice from Monday and anything else going on for the Raiders at the present.

 

Sloooow offseason is slow. No seriously, I forgot the Sharks exist and I am obsessed with the Sharks. Fear The Fin took a look at the fact that Tomas Kaberle is staying in Toronto, and what it means for the Sharks. It would have been nice, but I didn't think it was going to happen anyway.
