We interrupt this regular old Tuesday night to inform you that Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner is working on a perfect game at San Francisco’s AT&T Park. He has not allowed a hit or a walk through seven innings and he’s thrown just 78 pitches despite striking out nine Colorado hitters. Updates to come.

That’s right, Wily Peralta.

The Tribe walks off against Texas, MadBum was dominant and V-Mart goes yard again. Note: if you were not a baseball fan, you would have no idea what any of the stuff in the previous sentence meant. It’s just barely English, yet we all get it. Cool, huh?

Colon will hit a milestone if he can reel off a third straight victory this afternoon.

The Giants’ 9-6 victory over the Phillies lasted 14 innings, involved 16 pitchers throwing 507 times to the plate, took five hours and 46 minutes, included more cramping than a track meet for septuagenarians and it finally ended 7 minutes before 1 a.m. Wednesday morning at Citizens Bank Park when Tim Lincecum really and truly recorded his first career save.

“You wanna hit grand slams today, Buster?” “Sure Madison. Can I call you Madison? That seems weird.”

The last baseball that counts for a few days. Enjoy it, folks.

Maybe Madison Bumgarner should be in the Home Run Derby.

The Giants were concerned enough with the ergonomic health of their players that they invested in a larger chartered jet this season that features more first class seats.

Mike Napoli stole home. Though, really, we should call what he did something else. Also: are we at “Peak Brandon” in Major League Baseball?

The Giants might be reeling after losing three late leads and getting swept by the Colorado Rockies, but at least Buster Posey is clear of mind.

Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reported Saturday afternoon that the Cubs have already been in trade talks with multiple teams about ace right-hander Jeff Samardzija. Some of those calls have apparently come from San Francisco.

Collin Cowgill’s walkoff homer in the 14th was something. Yoenis Cespedes’ throw in the eighth was even more something.

The Giants and Jays keep rolling merrily along. And Travis Wood [all together now] helps his own cause.

This guy needs to learn to respect the video game.

The Dodgers manager thinks too many guys are looking to take offense at the slightest bit of jocularity. He’s right.
May 10, 2014, 9:35 AM EDT
You’re never going to believe this, but Yasiel Puig ticked someone off with a bat flip again.

What a fun, relaxing weekend. Not just for all of us who watched races and sipped julep. It was relaxing for Carlos Beltran too.
