    Didn't mean to make the 14s larger in that message; that's what I get for posting from my damn phone!

    It's the 70 and 0121 that I'm trying to confirm.

    Looking for the rear portion of a drive shaft for a 98-04 4wd Tacoma if anyone has one laying around or a spare they are willing to sell.

    Hoping to get it sometime this week if possible.

    Hah! They're actually a great size (for an FJ40) if you don't want to put on rear fender flares. 33x10.5's

    I'm not a giants fan, but it's hard to watch them give up that lead.

    Needed that big time. Dodgers didn't play and this padded the lead quite a bit. I had a feeling with Posey going to the plate 0-2 that he would get something. He sure did!

    Can't wait to see the match against MadBum tomorrow. Can't say I won't be emotional.

    It'll be a good one. But I hope the pen is ready.

    Some flags and center console divider... lots of things on the wanted list.
    Did they say in the cast that we were short on bullpen last night? It was odd we had a reliever in there for 2+ innings (7, 8, part of 9?) for sure. What happened to the Giants being the team with THE pitching pipeline? Did we lose coaching or a farm team somewhere that cultivated this?

    I think the BP is one of the best. But we’ve hit it hard over the last few games. Guys are tired and I think that’s what leads to 7-1 becoming 8-8. It’s a temporary situation.

    It’s not at all surprising this time of year but in reality only two of the five pitchers used stumbled, the other 3 were stellar and we didn’t even use the regular 7/8/9 group. They were hoping to get Desclafani out with a short day as well but his lack of control and stuff pushed his pitch count way up and he still couldn’t finish the fifth. Just couldn’t finish guys off. I think we miss having a guy like yusmeiro petit that could eat up middle inning relief or spot start to push the rotation back a day.

    They rested the regular 7/8/9 group who had all pitched 2 days in a row against the Astros and also used them and others against the Dodgers. Desclafani was gassed but only one of the four relievers used to finish the game pitched badly and he also had trouble with Houston. The pen is solid, even more so with Watson rejoining the team back to his former strength. August is going to be a tough month though, I think this game is a taste of how it will be on the offense to carry the pitching staff and just out score the opponents. Much like the Houston series was in fact.
