For the record, the Yanks are my first and only love. The Giants ... well, we're Just Friends. My National League team, y'know?
Now that the Giants have figured out how to win at home, the baseball is REALLY stirring here at the City by the Bay. After starting the season 4-11, San Francisco went 14-3 and is in second place. Somebody must have told the starting pitchers that they were ... well, starting pitchers because they've kept their team in the game until the offense (not just Barry Bonds anymore) can score runs.
The turning point was the 4-game sweep of the Mets at Pac Bell Park. The shift in momentum was palpable, and the fans sensed it (even the corporate lackey types sitting in the MVP section). A great turnaround in what has been called by national sportscasters the best ballpark in the majors.
If the pitching holds up, they will contend for the wild card and (maybe) for the NL West. Watch these guys.
