Official from Giants. Tonight's game postponed.

Here's a story about how the Giants' Mauricio Dubón has bonded with a Honduran child with some wonderful pictures that help tell the story:

Fabulous piece by @pgammo  on the great Roger Angell including a story on a night out in San Francisco with @pfimrite  ‘s legendary dad and an earthquake “prediction” hours before the ‘89 quake.

Who should Giants fans root for?

For today's A's-Astros Division Series opener, make sure to follow @susanslusser  and @Chandler_Rome  of our sister paper @HoustonChron , a fantastic reporter and writer. The only media members from the Bay Area and Houston at Dodger Stadium. Kudos.

Hearing Giants about to trade Matt Moore or Hunter Pence (or both) to clear up payroll space and that a deal is done pending a physical.

Scully; "One hundred and thirty-three pitches and a blooper to right, and so it goes in this great game. It seemed almost unfair."

Giants trading Matt Moore to Texas for prospects. Deal pending physical.

Mo'ne Davis throws out first pitch. Was asked to throw from front of mound. Instead walks to top of mound, throws fastball for strike.

Giants will retire Barry Bonds' number 25 in an Aug. 11 ceremony. Pirates will be in town. There you go. Wall of Fame. Retired number. Will we see a statue next?

I can confirm Pablo Sandoval deal with #redsox  is done pending physical and that it should be announced shortly. #sfgiants  need 3Bman.

Scully's final sign-off: "I have said enough for a lifetime. And for the last time, I wish you all a very pleasant good afternoon."

Whoops. The Freeze came all the way to the All-Star Game to beat some guy in a race ... and lost.
