Another day in San Francisco … but mostly in Santa Cruz

Day Two of the accidental vacation was equally relaxing. Spent most of the day in Santa Cruz. Was beautiful up there. I had never been there in the daytime. Had a bad dining experience, at Gilbert’s Seafood House on the Santa Cruz Wharf, and I won’t bore you with the details except to say the food was bad and the service was even worse. But other than that, it was a very enjoyable afternoon. But today, it is back to work, and I must say that I feel refreshed and ready for action. … In Grady’s defense, he really had no other option than Tomko to temporarily fill Wolf’s rotation spot. And I’m not surprised he juggled the rotation so Tomko starts here on Sunday instead of at home on Monday or Tuesday. Not sure what Grady’s reasoning was, but it might have had something to do with not wanting to subject Tomko to the incessant booing that was sure to greet him at Dodger Stadium, where the fans now boo him the minute he jogs out of the bullpen. Hey, it’s only one start. … Brian Sabean, the Giants GM, just got an extension through 2009 with a club option for 2010. Congrats to him. Giants are having a down year, but they have enough good, young talent that they’re not going to stay down for long. … The boys took early BP today and had a pretty good turnout. Looks like they were anxious to get back to work, too. … It’s a perfect day in San Francisco, no clouds, and you can see a blimp floating in the distance over the Bay. And it’s almost hot here, certainly warmer than any day since I got here late Sunday night. Should be a great weekend.
