Contra Costa Times: Goodwin’s gamble leaves Giants with no chance for rally. “Let’s give Tom Goodwin credit for being honest. In hindsight, he said it wasn’t such a wise move trying to advance to third with the Giants trailing 1-0 and Barry Bonds ready to step to the plate for some potential ninth-inning magic… ‘That’s probably the first time I’ve ever tried that play,’ said Goodwin, who walked against Byung-Hyun Kim and stole second before David Bell grounded to third baseman Craig Counsell to put the [double-]play in motion. ‘With Barry on deck I don’t know what I’m thinking.'”

We’ll have to see what the Giants can pull off against the very hot Colorado Rockies tonight.

Scripting News: “The RadioPoint Tool turns the outliner into a presentation authoring program… As weblogs are showing up at conferences, it makes sense to integrate presentation software into the weblog software. Create your slides before-hand, link the presentation to your weblog so people can get a preview. No need to bring a laptop, just find a Web browser on stage, click on the link, and start talking.”
