@robneyer: Garrett Jones makes an awesome start toward proving that last season wasn’t a fluke. A few more multi-homer games and I’ll believe it… Considering what Mark Buehrle did today(yesterday), I sure am glad I had him No. 1 on my Fielding Bible ballot last fall. http://tinyurl.com/ybtnnww & I’ve never seen a player who looked more out of place in a dugout than Tim Lincecum. Which of course makes him all the more endearing.
