The Giants are a riot to watch. A bunch of old guy regulars with a couple of kid pitchers sprinkled in.

Among the starters last night were Omar Vizquel (39 years old), Barry Bonds (41), Steve Finley (41) and Mike Matheny (35). Maybe this is done to make Bonds feel in his element in the clubhouse.

Anyway, this is a team that needs an adrenaline boost; a double shot of get-up-and-go.

Or a couple of trades. But it's typical that with elder stars, a team would be geared toward winning now. Which is why San Francisco's 6-11 record over the last 17 games is of such prime concern, especially with Moises Alou (39 years old, by the way) out indefinitely with the ankle injury.
