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.
