If you can't name at least three players on your home team before the season starts but try to come on when they start killing it like you've been there since day 1....you are a bandwagoner. The amount of bandwagon Giants fans in Sac is frightening.

What you just described is fairweather fan, not an Bandwagon fan. There is a difference.

I cant believe l a defending a rapper. Lol

But do you all know Drake personally? How do you know he doesnt go to games? How do you know he didin't know more than 3 players on the Blue Jays before the season started? God forbid a Toronto native gets a little more into it when the BlueJays trade for superstars and are relevant for the first time in decades.

Plane and simple the Giants just need to knock the fight completely out of the Nats this weekend.

You say potato I say potato. I don't think you deserve automatic fan hood just because you're from there. If you paid no attention to a team and didn't care at all when they were trash and start acting like you're a diehard once they start winning, you're a bandwagon IMO. I don't know Drake, he may be a legit fan in his spare time, I'm saying what I believe to be a bandwagon.

Sidenote, Seinfeld has to be one of the 3 best celebrity sports fans for his team. Dude is ride or die for the Mets since day 1.

Why do you care what the Nats do? Their play won't have any affect on the Giants. And the fight has been gone since the season started.

One less team I have to worry about in the WC chase if the Giants can't win the West. I don't believe they have completely packed it in yet.

Only way they'd make the playoffs is through the division. Nats are done.

I blame Williams and Rizzo. Rizzo has been a good GM for the most part, but his organizational hitting philosophy is ******. This team plays for the three run homer and they rarely hit it. 14 Ks in a game started by Ryan Voglesong is embarrassing. After Bryce Harper, the lineup is essentially a black hole. Not a single hitter batting over .240. There isn't much Williams can do, but why on earth continue to play Ian Desmond and bat Jayson Werth 5th? **** makes me hate baseball.

Really? Desmond has been playing good baseball for the last month....specifically the last week or so. I understand the frustration because he has had a very poor year overall. But he has been good recently.

Today in Baseball History - August 14th (Click to show)
Today in Baseball History
August 14th

1888 Tim Keefe's nineteen game winning streak ends when Gus Krock and the White Stockings defeat the Giants at the Polo Grounds, 4-2. The future Hall of Fame right-hander, who will amass 342 career victories, will finish the season with a 35-12 record.

1919 In a total of two hours and seventeen minutes, the Dodgers and Cubs split a doubleheader. In the opener, the Cubs blank Brooklyn 2-0, in one hour and 10 minutes and in the nightcap it takes the Dodgers one hour and 7 minutes to shut out Chicago, 1-0.

1932 Brooklyn's 10-inning, 2-1 victory over the Giants at the Polo Grounds makes reliever John Quinn, at the age of 49, the oldest player to win a major league game. Johnny Frederick, who will have a total of only six home runs during the entire season, hits a ninth inning game-tying homer off Carl Hubbell, his fourth round-tripper as a pinch hitter, establishing a new major-league record.

1933 Jimmie Foxx hits for the cycle in the A's 11-5 victory over the Tribe at Cleveland Stadium. The Philadelphia first baseman's offensive output drives in nine runs to establish a new American League record.

1937 At Navin Field, the Tigers sweep a doubleheader against the visiting Browns, 16-1 and 20-7. The thirty-six Detroit runs, including the eight scored by Pete Fox, establish a new American League record for tallies in a twin bill, which will not be broken until the Rangers score 39 times in two games on August 23, 2007.

1939 In an evening event that attracts over 30,000 Windy City patrons to Comiskey Park, the White Sox beat the Browns, 5-2, in the first major league night game ever played in Chicago. It will take another 49 years before their cross-town rivals play under lights when the Cubs finally install illumination in the friendly confines of Wrigley Field under the threat of not being able to play postseason contests in their home ballpark.

1958 Vic Power, who will have a total of only three stolen bases this season, becomes the first player in seventy years to steal home twice in one game. The third baseman's tenth-inning theft of the dish ends the game, giving the Indians a 10-9 'slide-off' victory over the Tigers.

1960 Mickey Mantle is booed by the fans at Yankee Stadium and is benched by Casey Stengel for not running out a routine ground ball that results in an 'ugly' inning-ending double play during a 6-3 nightcap loss in a doubleheader sweep by the Senators. On the play, the team loses Roger Maris when he bruises his ribs sliding hard into second baseman Billy Gardner's knee in an effort to break up the twin killing.

1961 In a 9-2 defeat to the Cubs' **** Ellsworth, the Phillies drop their seventeenth consecutive game and for the eleventh straight time the opposing pitcher throws a complete game against the team. The last-place club will finish the season with a 47-107 record, 46 games behind league-leading Reds.

1962 Al Jackson goes the distance in the Mets' 15-inning loss to Philadelphia. The hard-luck lefty, who throws an astounding 215 pitches during the contest, gives up only six hits, but Mel Roach, the opposing pitcher, hits a two-run single in the fifteenth frame that will be the difference in his 3-1 defeat at the Polo Grounds.

1962 For the third time this season, the Aaron brothers hit home runs in the same game. Tommie and Hank's solo round-trippers in the sixth and seventh innings, respectively, prove to be the difference in the Braves' 5-4 victory over Cincinnati at Crosley Field.

1964 In a battle of teenagers at Shea Stadium, 19 year-old first baseman Ed Kranepool homers twice off 18 year-old Phillies' starter Rick Wise. The young Philadelphia right-hander will prevail to earn the victory in the team's 6-4 decsion over the Mets.

1971 Bob Gibson doesn't allow a hit when the Cardinals beat the Pirates, 11-0, the largest margin of victory ever in franchise history for a no-hitter. The first no-hitter in Pittsburgh in 64 years, and the first in the year-old Three Rivers Stadium, is made possible thanks to outstanding defensive plays made by outfielder Jose Cruz and third baseman Joe Torre.

1981 Jeff Burroughs hits three home runs off three different pitchers in the Mariners' 13-3 defeat over Minnesota in the second game of a doubleheader. The M's right fielder drives in six runs with his two-run, three-run and solo round-trippers in the Metropolitan Stadium contest to help salvage a split of the twin bill.

1982 Phillies first baseman Pete Rose, with his 12,365th trip to the plate, passes Hank Aaron to become the all-time leader of career at-bats. The all-time hit king will end his 24-year tenure in the major leagues with an amazing total of 15,890 ABs.

1987 Mark McGwire's 39th round-tripper breaks the major league record for home runs by rookies, surpassing Wally Berger and Frank Robinson. The A's freshman first baseman will finish the season with 49 homers to lead the American League.

1993 The Yankees retire Reggie Jackson's uniform number 44. 'Mr. October', recently inducted into the Hall of Fame, played as an embattled right fielder for the Bronx Bombers from 1977-81, helping the club reach the postseason four times, including winning two world championships.

1998 The A's Rickey Henderson's stolen base in the first-inning against the Tigers makes the thirty-nine year old the oldest player to steal 50 bases in a season. The veteran outfielder will end the season with a major league-leading 66 stolen bases.

1998 In a 15-3 rout of the Indians at Jacobs Field, Chris Hoiles becomes the ninth player in major league history and the only catcher to hit two grand slams in the same game. The Orioles backstop goes yard with the bases full in the third inning off Charles Nagy and does it again in the eighth off Ron Villone.

1999 With Pudge's 20th stolen base in Chicago, Texas backstop Ivan Rodriguez becomes the first catcher in major league history with 20 homers and 20 stolen bases in the same season.

2001 In the top of the ninth, Boston closer Derek Lowe allows the tying run to score when he gives up three consecutive singles to the only three batters he faces in Seattle's eventual 6-3 victory in 11 innings at Fenway Park. The Red Sox fans show their displeasure about the blown save by tearing and then throwing onto the field pieces of the giveaway they received as promotion for attending tonight's game, a Derek Lowe poster.

2003 Despite a massive blackout in the Northeast, the game between the Mets and the Giants at Shea Stadium is the only postponement on the major league schedule. Although Detroit, Toronto and Cleveland were without electricity, the Tigers, Blue Jays and Indians either had the day off or were playing on the road.

2004 The Florida State League's Daytona Cubs will be forced to shift their home games into away contests as Hurricane Charley causes extensive damage to their historic ballpark. The facility, which was built in 1914 and renamed for Jackie Robinson to commemorate the site where the future Hall of Famer and civil rights advocate played his first exhibition game with the Montreal Royals, was also damaged by Hurricane Donna (1966) and Hurricane Floyd (1999).

2006 Matt Diaz ties a National League record and establishes a club mark by collecting a hit in ten consecutive at-bats. The Braves 28 year-old left-fielder, who goes 4-for-5 in Atlanta's 10-4 victory over the Nationals at RFK, surpasses teammate Marcus Giles, who held the previous franchise mark with nine straight safeties in 2003.

2007 For the 132nd time in his career, Atlanta skipper Bobby Cox is ejected from a major league game, breaking John McGraw’s all-time ejections record. It took the Braves manager only 28 seasons to set the new mark, compared to the 42 years in which Mugsy compiled his tosses, including 14 as a player.

2007 Phil Rizzuto, the oldest-living Hall of Famer, dies in his sleep at a New Jersey nursing home from complications of pneumonia at the age of 89. Scooter, who was enshrined at Cooperstown for outstanding play as a shortstop during the Yankee dynasty years of the 1940’s and 50’s, became a popular icon in New York as a result of his unique broadcasting style of Bronx Bomber games, his appearance in numerous commercials as well as lending his voice on Meat Loaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" rock hit which won a Grammy.

2007 After being arrested for hitting two players with a bat, former big leaguer Jose Offerman is suspended indefinitely by the independent Atlantic League for the assault that occurred during a Bluefish and Long Island Ducks game. As a result of the incident, triggered when the former All Star is drilled by a pitch after hitting a homer in his first at bat, Bridgeport backstop John Nathans sustains a concussion and starter Matt Beech suffers a broken finger.

2008 In the sixth inning of a 9-2 rout of the Royals, the White Sox become the sixth team in major league history to hit four consecutive home runs in an inning. Jim Thome, Paul Konerko, and Alexei Ramirez all all go deep off K.C. reliever Joel Peralta with Juan Uribe completing the record-tying feat by taking Robinson Tejeda yard at Chicago's U.S. Cellular Field.

2008 With his 5-for-5 performance, including a single, double, triple and homer, Mark Kotsay joins Albert Hall as the only Atlanta players to hit for the cycle. The outfielder's offensive outburst isn't enough as the Cubs beat the Braves, 11-7, giving Chicago their first season sweep of the Braves in franchise history, which dates back to 1876.

2010 Mike McClendon becomes the first rookie in Brewers' history to retire the first nine batter he faces. The 25 year-old right-hander is perfect in the sixth, seventh and eighth frames in Milwaukee's eventual 5-4, ten-inning victory over Colorado at Coors Field.
