Isn't that cute, getting all excited about having the fourth-best record in the league.

Isn't that cute, a fan of a team that's never won a damn thing...

Big conflict for me in this serious: I frigging HATE the Giants, been a Dodger fan for 50 years; but I've been a Senators/Nationals fan for 53 years. So, I find myself in the position of rooting for the Giants, which pains me like a sting from a red velvet ant (the cow killer). I'll survive, I like the Nats way more than the Dodgers now, haven't lived in S. Cal since 1967 and was born in Washington, DC. So, Go Giants! (mouth now needs bleach).

I think MLB's next CBA should enforce "vacating wins" to teams with players who are caught with PED. Use the WAR (Wins Above Replacement) statistic or something....

Did they figure out their closer situation? I had casilla and had to drop him due to whatever the hell happened to him.

Couldn't watch the game anywhere last night (thanks, Selig, you cock), but after hearing about the sweep, I am kinds glad I couldn't watch it.

Go Dodgers!

second time we've swept them this season I might add.

Wait until you hear his thesis on how Colon was doing it wrong.

No, I was talking about the Milwaukee Brewers. Not the Seattle Pilots, mind you, that's something else.

Some people might think I'm talking about the Orioles now, but those are simply the New York Baseball Yankees. 'Course, they'll always be the Highlanders to me. There can be only one (team nickname)!

(And don't even get me started on the Toronto Baseball Blue Jays, not to be confused with the Philadelphia Baseball Blue Jays)

Yup, 2.5 game lead with 38 to play.


Book it, done.

Tim Lincecum? Awful.

Melky Cabrera? Suspended.

The Giants? Still in first, 'cause the Dodgers suck.

New York Football Giants is their legal name. It is like say the Knickerbockers instead of the Knicks.

Well then, maybe I can calm you down with a nice story.

You see, back in this mythical time known as "The Depression," when people managed to scrape up a little cash, they would often try and find entertaining things to attend to help them forget about how much their life sucked. This is often called "Escapism." Now, in a lot of the country, people mostly had to make due with attending the cinema, which was getting pretty popular. But people in New York, well, they had LOADS of options. Take sports for instance.

Baseball, of course, was the national pastime. There were a few minor league teams, but you really wanted to go one of the three major league clubs. They had the New York Baseball Yankees, the New York Baseball Giants, and the Brooklyn Baseball Dodgers.

Course, you could also go to the Negro League games and see teams such as the New York Lincoln Negro Baseball Giants. Boy were they good! Later on, the New York Black Baseball Yankees formed as well.

But football was becoming more popular too, and some professional leagues started to crop up. One of these was called the NFL. They had a team called the New York Football Yankees, but, unfortunately, it folded before the Depression even started (that's probably where the name Depression came from, right?). Luckily, they also had a team called the New York Football Giants, and another one called the Brooklyn Football Dodgers.

The NFL had competitors, though. The biggest was called the AFL, and they had an exciting team called the New York Football Yankees. Unfortunately, the AFL folded. Luckily, a few years later, a NEW league showed up, called the AFL. They had a team called the New York Football Yankees. They also had a team called the New York Football Americans.

Now, the President of the NFL, he really liked sports. So when he found out about this new one called "Basketball", he said "By golly, let's make a league!" So he did, and it was called the ABL. And for a short time, they had a team called the New York Basketball Yankees. They weren't very good though, and soon went away. Later on, they had a team called the Brooklyn Basketball Indians, but I'm not sure why I'm telling you that because that was after the Depression was done.

There were a lot of immigrants in New York thanks to a place called "Ellis Island", and some of them brought their favorite sport along for the ride: FOOTBALL! Except we already had something called football, so they renamed it "soccer." Well, they formed a league called the ASL. It had all kinds of teams, with silly names like the New York Soccer Yankees and the New York Soccer Giants and the New York Soccer Americans.

Finally, these crazy guys from up North said "Hey, we invented a sport played on ICE! Want to join our NHL?" Well, of course New York said YES! and formed a team known as the New York Hockey Americans

Now, wouldn't that be a great time to be alive? You get together with your friends, someone says "Hey, let's go to a Giants game tonight" and you get to spend the next 5 hours arguing about which sport. What a blast!

And my entire point was that there is absolutely no confusion among these teams since we are several decades removed from when the distinction was necessary, and therefore, anyone referring to them in that manner was a douchebag.

Per the comment above, anyone who says "New York Football Giants" is correct since that is the franchise's official name, but I still feel they are a douchebag.

In other news the Rockies are on a 4 game win streak and are a real threat to move up from being the 2nd worst team to being the 3rd or 4th worst team in all of baseball.

It's not unnecessary. The team is the Athletics. The apostrophe is there because the "thletic" is not. If the team was named A, then the apostrophe would be unnecessary. Unless you were talking about its posessions, then all bets are off.
