Marcus Thompson

Sorry. I said already he should be done for the playoffs RT @jacobfagan: If he got him out, you'd be in love right? haha

Tim Kawakami

Strickland is yelling and gesturing at KC's bench

Tim Kawakami

Strickland cave-in. Wow.

Marcus Thompson

Sure did RT @Ericb1980: the throw showed you why they waved him home.

Marcus Thompson

Strickland ... Why he is in for critical spots, I don't get it

Tim Kawakami

And as I type that, I see Affeldt starting to loosen up in the pen.

Tim Kawakami

Nobody else throwing in the SFG pen. This is up to Strickland for now. Infante-Moustakas after Perez.

Tim Kawakami

Strickland vs. Perez now. Thought Bochy might do it this way.

Marcus Thompson

Just disrespected Ishikawa's arm. Cain wasn't even at third when Ishi got it, still got waved home

Tim Kawakami

Gore pinch-running for Butler. Here they go.

Tim Kawakami

It'll be Lopez to face Gordon.

Tim Kawakami

Strickland up with Lopez in the SFG pen.

Tim Kawakami

Machi in. I think Bochy will go to Lopez vs. Gordon, so this is probably a one-batter appearance for Machi.

Tim Kawakami

Wonder if Bochy goes righty (Machi vs. Butler) lefty (Lopez vs. Gordon) after Hosmer here.

Tim Kawakami

Looks like machi and lopez throwing in SFG pen

Tim Kawakami

That was some nasty stuff from Herrera.

Tim Kawakami

If Sandoval hits a double here, I don't think Posey's going to try to score. Just a thought.

Tim Kawakami

Dyson in CF, Cain moves to RF, Aoki out.

Marcus Thompson

Admirable outing from Peavy

Tim Kawakami

10 in a row fo rPeavy.

Diamond Leung

Going to assume the BBQ in San Francisco is better than the dim sum in Kansas City.

Tim Kawakami

KC needs Ventura to last a lot longer than SFGs' need Peavy. No Duffy available. Giants have everybody.

Tim Kawakami

28 pitches in the last 3 innings for Peavy.

Tim Kawakami

That's 7 in a row retired by Peavy. Of course it is.

Tim Kawakami

Third base was briefly wide open, which is why Belt thought about going. He's not fast enough to think those thoughts, though.

Marcus Thompson

What happened to the Royals outfield????

Tim Kawakami

Mark Gardner just had a quick talk with Petit in the SFG bullpen, but still nobody throwing.

Tim Kawakami

The Royals have more doubles (3) than swing-and-misses (2).

Tim Kawakami

Just 11 pitches in that inning for Peavy--the Royals are SWINGING.

Tim Kawakami

Righetti out... gotta figure one more hit and Petit will start throwing. So far still nothing in bullpen.

Marcus Thompson

Already lol RT @BontaHill: This game has Yusmeiro Petit written all over it...

Tim Kawakami

Nobody stirring in SFG pen. Yet.

Tim Kawakami

Fast infield tonight.

Tim Kawakami

Both pitchers got hit solidly in the 1st, both threw 20 pitches.

Tim Kawakami

Single, fly ball, double, walk, single off of Peavy so far. He's not fooling 'em.

Tim Kawakami

Great tag by Panik. Don't know if he got him, but the short-hop tag got the call.

Marcus Thompson

Of course Blanco homers. I'm in traffic and didn't watch it

Peter Guber

#story listening is a vital component of your purposeful story telling ... bit.ly/10jzqqy

Tim Kawakami

Not always a barometer of much, but Ventura was all over the place in his warm-up pitches just now.

Tim Kawakami

Lincecum was out for the national anthem. Yes. Him.

Diamond Leung

Warriors’ Brandon Rush disappointed he’s likely out for season opener bit.ly/1FETnrG

Will Warriors’ Andre Iguodala start? Steve Kerr likes what he sees off the bench as Andrew Bogut makes a prediction bit.ly/1wbKjYu

Tim Kawakami

Cat-expert @mercbrownie is investigating. This apparently happens here occasionally. There are cats roaming the stadium.

Tim Kawakami

There is definitely a cat meowing quite loudly from the vents above the Kauffman Stadium press box. Or @annkillion and I are going crazy...

Diamond Leung

Brandon Rush said the rookies did a terrible job signing Happy Birthday to Festus Ezeli and might have to do it again at the open practice.

Diamond Leung

Steve Kerr: "I thought last night was just a case of carelessness, laziness, just a casual way with the ball."

Warriors arena project exec David Carlock said in order to preserve Oracle Arena acoustics, team hired company to laser scan current bowl.

Steve Kerr: "Last night we scored 125 points, shot 59 percent and had 79 turnovers."

Steve Kerr jokes the Warriors committed 79 turnovers last night.

Diamond Leung

Bob Fitzgerald: "If you have Ed Lee instead of David Lee, you're in trouble." Bob Myers laughs: "I don't know about that."

Rusty Simmons

Bob Fitzgerald: "You don't win anything without talent. If you have Ed Lee instead of David Lee, you're in trouble."

Tim Kawakami

And I now know that @annkillion already quoted Sabean saying that. I know this because she just told me. OOPS.

Tim Kawakami

Bumgarner had just won NLCS MVP. Sabean told the pitcher: "What the hell are you going to do when you grow up?' The guy's 25 years old."

Tim Kawakami

Spoke to Brian Sabean about several topics yesterday. One snippet: On the podium after the NLCS victory, he was alone with Bumgarner...

Diamond Leung

Steve Kerr: "I'm a Southern Californian, but I love the Bay Area."

Diamond Leung

Bob Myers said when he was an agent, players didn't know where Golden State was located.

Diamond Leung

Bob Fitzgerald calls Bob Myers UCLA's human victory cigar.

Monte Poole

Somebody pls tell SF Mayor Ed Lee: Those sports figurines are bobblehead dolls. Not Bobby-head dolls.

Diamond Leung

Ed Lee presented with a David Lee bobblehead and jersey. Ed Lee then calls David Lee his long lost brother.

Diamond Leung

Ed Lee to Warriors players: "You make us proud."

Diamond Leung

Ed Lee: "Go Ws!" As in "Go double u's!"

Mark Jackson talks up Klay Thompson, recalls how coaching and religion intersected with Warriors bit.ly/1x9kHs2

Rusty Simmons

The Warriors are considered the most fun team to watch by the GMs and have the third-best home-court advantage (behind OKC and DEN).

Rusty Simmons

Alvin Gentry was selected by the GMs as the league's top assistant coach. Also on the Warriors' staff, Ron Adams, received a vote.

Rusty Simmons

Andre Iguodala and Klay Thompson each received 7.1% of the vote as the NBA's best perimeter defender. LeBron James was No. 1 at 25%.

Rusty Simmons

Steph Curry got one vote as the NBA's best PG and 7.4% of the votes for best SG. Klay Thompson got 18.5% for best SG. James Harden was No. 1

Rusty Simmons

Klay Thompson tied with Andre Drummond for third place among players most likely to have a breakout 2014-15 season. Anthony Davis was No. 1.

Rusty Simmons

In the GM survey, the Clippers got 81.5% of the votes to win the Pacific Division, with the Warriors following at 18.5%.

Rusty Simmons

Among the general managers surveyed by NBA.com, Stephen Curry was selected as the league's best shooter by 60.7%.

Rusty Simmons

Mark Jackson: "You can take the 'think' out. He’s going to get it." ... Van Gundy: "You’re right, and he should. He’s that good."

Rusty Simmons

Jeff Van Gundy: "Klay Thompson is w/o question a maximum-salary player. I think he’s going to get it. He’s going to get it from someone."

Diamond Leung

Mark Jackson on Klay Thompson possibly getting the max: "He's going to get it."

Matt Steinmetz

Michael Cooper is another -- team's best defender who came off bench. Tony Allen mostly starter.

Matt Steinmetz

If Iguodala comes off bench for Warriors, when was last time team's best defender didn't start? Bobby Jones, Philly, early '80s?

Matt Steinmetz

Lincecum & Cain were horses for Giants. For success to continue without them is a testament to Sabean's brilliance.
