    For most of the Astros existence a local radio station carried their games, first with Gene Elstin and later with the great Milo Hamilton. Now there is no local broadcast.

    sorta like here, all my life local radio carried the Giants games, then 7-10 years, ago they stopped. Mountains mess with radio, and I'm in the Giants blackout zone, so not eligible for mlb.tv/.radio, and I'm too cheap for sirius, I just had to do without,.. it's cool to hear the radio call-in shows again

    Theriot won the World Series with the San Francisco Giants in 2012. In Game 4 of the series, In the tenth inning, he hit a leadoff single and eventually scored the go-ahead and winning run which gave the Giants the clinching victory in a 4-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers.

    Bryce Harper is headed to Philadelphia.

    Harper's 13-year, $330 million contract with the Phillies will keep him in the National League East

    13 years, good god,.. I was afraid he was gonna sign with the Giants

    He would have looked great in an Astros uniform.

    I would have thought you would want him to sign with the Giants.
