Giambi Likes Breathing Room Too You Know

Two crucial wins in the desert to complete an otherwise forgettable road trip. The Thong goes yard twice in these victories, which provided some insurance in each of the two games and ultimately in the standings. Looking like a pretty brilliant acquisition at this point to bring in the menacing left-hander for the stretch run. With the Giants, Marlins, and Braves all losing today, the Rocks have to feel much better than they did last Wed night taking the field in SF with a DLR-Cain matchup and only a 2 1/2 game lead in the Wild Card race.

12 games to go: 9 at home and 3 on the road. With a 4 1/2 game lead, I like how the math is working out. Still, considering the last 3 games are played in LA (where the Rocks traditionally lose), the team really needs to continue the dominance at Coors and over the NL Central with the Cards and the Brew Crew comprising 2/3 of the home stand.

Time to make some serious home-hay...and put this WC away.
