Barry Bonds homered against Dodgers in the second inning yesterday at Pac Bell. The ball went over the heads of people waiting in the food line in the center field bleachers. The Giants won to pull even with the Dodgers for the wild card. Nothing against LA, but I hope that the Giants win the wild card just so that no one has any excuse not to give the best player in the league another MVP.
Alex Rodriguez hit two home runs to power the Rangers over the Mariners and break his record of one year for homers by a shortstop. The argument against Rodriguez is that the Rangers have not been in the playoff race since May. The Rangers finish the year against the three playoff contending teams in their division. What will the critics have to say if A-Rod dominates these teams down the stretch?
