1. Giants Pitcher Yusmeiro Petit Throws His 76th Straight Imperfect Game


Yusmeiro Petit came precariously close to ending his flawless 76-game imperfect throwing streak yesterday when — in the ninth inning, with two outs and two strikes, without having allowed a single member of the Arizona Diamondbacks to reach base — the San Francisco Giants' pitcher successfully managed to let pinch-hitter Eric Chavez hit a a line drive to right field that landed just inches from Hunter Pence's glove. Congratulations on keeping the magic going!

Ask Hillary Clinton about that. Ask those assholes." Lots of people are talking about Rodman, so his trip is being considered a huge success.
