Down By The Bay: Oh Yeah, That Happened

We've got some NFL action today as both San Francisco and Oakland will be wrapping up their exhibition season. Both teams have a few more question marks to be addressed at backup positions and bubble players will be playing tough. Yesterday, we had a couple of good baseball games including a Tim Lincecum win, shocking as it may sound.

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.

Now, that was a game that Giants fans were waiting for. It's September, which of course means that there's some cosmic reason for all of this happening. Who knows? All I know is that McCovey Chronicles has a somewhat skeptical postgame thread from the Giants win over the Rockies yesterday and also the minor lines for you to look through.

A good point is made on Athletics Nation in their postgame thread and recap from yesterday's game against the Yankees: it's a game they could and should have won. Which I suppose makes it all the more worse for them when they can't get it. Ah, well there's always next time.

Niners Nation started the day off nice and slowly with some questions from SB Nation's San Diego Chargers blog, Bolts from the Blue. Then everything went all kinds of crazy and there was a heated exchange between Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis. After that, Mike Singletary spoke on the matter and did nothing to clear anything up, as usual.

The Raiders had some injuries at the running back position, and in light of that, Silver And Black Pride had a post advocating the re-signing of Justin Fargas. I'd be all for that signing, personally. On top of that, they had their mostly-daily post covering a range of topics that's always a good, entertaining read.

So it's pretty crazy, but the Sharks are apparently set to sign goalie Antti Niemi. It's a shocking move, but then again not entirely shocking. In preperation for the actual signing, Fear The Fin got a thread up called "The Aftermath," where there will surely be a lot of excitement, complaining, fear and loathing and all the biz.
