Bay Area Buzz 4/29: Curry's Magic Ride, Giants Lose 5th Straight


Stephen Curry’s Magic Ride, the 4:22 That Will Last Forever, and Everything That’s Possible Now for the Warriors

When Stephen Curry is officially anointed the greatest shooter of all time, they will talk about this game and they won’t have to say much else.

When and if the Warriors finish off Denver in this series, they will point to the final 4:22 of the third quarter Sunday night and it will all be explained.

When thousands of Oracle Arena fans suffer from partial hearing loss for days and weeks, maybe years… well, they will know what happened.

Curry happened, like a thunder clap, over and over and over again.

Giants Lose 5th Straight: Vogelsong Knocked Around, Scutaro Might Need a Break

The Giants are dealing with a dependability drought, and until that turns around they’re going to continue to experience embarrassments like getting swept in Milwaukee and San Diego. Ryan Vogelsong, as sturdy they come throughout 2011 and 2012, needed to put Bruce Bochy’s mind at ease with at least six strong innings, and hopefully more. Instead, he gave up three home runs and six runs (five earned) through only five innings.

A’s Use Thrilling Comeback to Defeat Orioles in 10 Innings

The A’s stormed back in the sixth, tied the game in the seventh, returned the lead in the eighth and then tied it again in the bottom of the ninth with a two-run homer by Cuban star Yoenis Cespedes, who was playing in his first game since coming off the disabled list.

When the dust settled, the A’s won, 9-8, on consecutive bad throws on attempted sacrifice bunts. It ended on a walk-off error.

It was that kind of game.

Draft Review: Oakland Raiders

Give McKenzie credit — this roster has improved at numerous positions compared to where it stood earlier in the spring. In the best-case scenario for the Raiders’ Class of 2013, these three things happen: 1) Hayden is a starter-caliber player from the get-go; 2) Watson and Wilson build on their potential; 3) the Day Three picks other than Wilson provide solid depth, with one or two panning out better than Oakland expected.

    Scutaro is playing about as well as he should be expected to play. Late last season was a Giant fluke.
