Again, another entertaining ball game. The A's win it with a walk off home run. That was a pretty entertaining series.

I was hoping for a sweep, but that was a great series. Entertaining games, odd happenings, and bay area rivals renewing ties. I like this aspect of interleague play a lot. This whole weekend has been fun with this series, the beltway series, Freeway series, Subway series and the Missouri series. In the end though, I'm glad the A's won because of that ball miss call by the ump. It was clearly fair.

I know it's still early, but I would say this series this week against the Dodgers is pretty big. Win 2 of the three games and get Cincinnati kind of unscathed.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) A California county has surprised both the San Francisco 49ers and city of Santa Clara leaders by pulling $30 million in tax funds from the new 49ers stadium.

Santa Clara County officials told the Mercury News on Saturday that they would rather spend the money on teachers.

The team and the city said voters had specifically earmarked redevelopment money to help build the $1.2 billion stadium and that the county has no right to keep it.

The 49ers and Santa Clara officials will craft an official response this week. Lawsuits are likely, according to the newspaper.

The revocation occurred Friday by a new board that oversees property tax from redevelopment zones.
I am all for teachers being taken care of, trust me, but something is fishy here. If indeed this money has been earmarked by voters for the stadium, that is where it goes. People would not like it if money earmarked by voters for teachers was yanked away, so why do the vice-versa of it? I am anxious to see what Santa Clara and the 49ers end up doing in response to this.

I don't want to turn this into a political discussion, but, Moo, let me explain to you how CA voters work. CA voters will vote for money to go to one thing, then when there isn't enough money for teachers or firefighters they will ***** about it. When someone proposes that they fix the problem by either raising taxes to fill the gap in funds, or by returning the original money to where there is a lack of funds, voters get upset because they originally voted for the money to go elsewhere.

Then CA voters will put something on the ballot stating that the state must fully fund teachers or police or whatever was lacking money by spending X amount on it. It will pass. The state/county will then not have enough money because the revenue amount hasn't changed, so it will put a tax increase on the ballot. The tax increase 7/10 fails. Because it failed the state/county can't meet the spending demands of the voters and someone will sue.

My guess, this is Santa Clara jumping all the in between steps and just going straight to "someone will sue" and they'd rather have the 49ers suing than a bunch of angry parents complaining about teachers not being funded.

Ok HF Sharks baseball fans, I come with a proposition from HF's Blue Jays fans:

All-star voting right now is a joke. Yes, we know the game itself is an equally big joke, but that's beside the point. Rangers fans are stuffing the ballot box, so Nelson Cruz is catching up to Jose Bautista for the 3rd OF spot on the AL team. Also, Edwin Encarnacion is outside of the top 5 in DH voting even though he's having a stellar year.

So here's the deal -

The HF Jays fans are willing to vote for whatever A's and Giants players you want to try to send to the all-star game in exchange for you guys voting for Bautista, Encarnacion, and Colby Rasmus (we know that both OFs won't crack the top voting #s, but it's kind of a symbolic vote for Rasmus who is absolutely on fire over the last month and a half)

Let us know who to vote for and we will.

and if anyone asks "Why should we vote for Blue Jays players", remember: I do a lot around here. You all owe me. The draft review thread I'm putting up tonight should be work enough to get some ASG votes. Plus I can totally ban the lot of you from this board.

I'm pretty annoyed that I waited too long to get tickets for this weekends game (at least, ones cheap enough for me to buy), I'll have to try to get to one later in the summer.

An impressive end to an impressive series. Shutting out a team for an entire three game series is ridiculous.

Impressive series win by the Giants yes, but that Dodgers lineup is atrocious. If Eithier has any type of serious injury they are going straight to the cellar. Their lineup looks like a spring training split team squad. I mean if even us lowly A's can sweep you...

I'm sorry but because this was the first thing I read in this thread when I opened it, I was somewhat amused.

Great series and Timmy brought the old Lincecum back today. That was a huge sweep, if there is such a thing this early in the season.

I figured they would have to see some bad luck soon but I didn't think it would get this bad. That's funny.

You are underestimating just how bad the Padres and Rockies are.
