I guess there are things in the Giants world to write about on an off day. Are the Giants really going to screw around with Ryan Theriot and Joaquin Arias in the outfield? What's Pat Burrell up to? Why come them pitchers no pitch much good like back over there?

Yeah, there are things to write about. But for some reason, I'm in a navel-gazing, nostalgic kind of mood. That's probably why I wrote about Brian Johnson today, albeit in an Orioles/Pirates context. And I'm also in a mood to write about Matt Cain's perfect game.
