Wait a minute! Eight San Francisco runs? Against Cliff Lee? That’s right, Lee was due for an off game and the Giants took advantage of it. Freddy Sanchez (who was in the Red Sox system for a short while, and also won a batting title while he was with the Pirates) led the attack going 4/5, 3 of those hits were doubles, 3 RBIs and 2 runs scored. Of the Giants 14 hits against Lee and the Rangers, 6 were doubles, and 1 was a 3 run homer by Juan Uribe. O’Day came into the game in relief of Lee. I was hoping for the Giants’ PA system to blare the “Dayo” from the Harry Belafonte ‘Banana Boat Song’, but did not hear it.
I think not. The Yankee’s will be pulling up with wheelbarrows full of cash on his doorstep, but Lee’s wife was not too keen on Yankee fan’s behavior for starters. Their home in Arkansas is only a 40 minute flight to the Ranger’s ball park. I say he stays with the Rangers.
