Blackout Rules

On a lighter note...

Felt like the Oakland Football Marketing Association days today with the Giants blacked out on local TV thanks to Fox's exclusivity rights on Saturday afternoons. But the upside was getting to listen to baseball's best trio of announcers - Jon Miller, Duane Kuiper, and Mike Krukow - do the game together on KNBR. At one point, Miller did his Vin Scully impression, passing it back to Duane, Mike, and "Jim," perhaps daring Johnny to again argue against this announcing team as baseball's best with Jon Miller added to the equation. While talking about last night's winner, Ryan Sadowski, Miller even went on at length about what a terrific movie The Big Lebowski is, and they threw in a few quotes from The Dude. I couldn't agree more.

It helped that the Giants pounded Mikey's Astros, scoring 8 insurance runs for Tim Lincecum, who looks to be making another serious Cy Young bid.
