The Giants are struggling after a decent start. Problems are popping up here and there. Starting pitching has not reached the potential and what we have come to expect from this group, only Cueto have performed up to what we could expect. Peavy and Cain are struggling to stay in long enough to save the bullpen.
Reliving staff took a blow when Rome had to go on the DL with a Flexor problem in the elbow. Not long after he was joined by Kontos with the same issue and both have to rest for considerable time. They have been replaced by Law, Broadway and Overt. All there of them have made their MLB debutes and performed well.
Unfortunately the offence have gone pretty cold and not been able to create runs with the small ball or the long ball as earlier in the short season. We need MadBum to be the stopper tonight but he needs some help with some timely hits.
In the Premier League Liverpool is trying to keep up with the teams ahead in the standings in chasing another place in Europe. Away win at Bournemouth this past weekend was good.
But more importantly they managed a serious and unlikely comeback against Dortmund at Anfield in the Europa League. 1-3 was turned to 4-3 in the last 30 min with the winner coming on injury time.
Over here Hammarby beat local rival Djurgården 1-3 and makes for a good start to the season. This was tha second time that we beat Djurgården this season, we also won in the Cup.
Finally the Spartans from Chula Vista High in southern San Diego are playing better even if they lost to San Ysidro yesterday.
