Odds are, today's going to be a sequel.
But the question is, what kind of sequel? A Bat Boys II, Jerry Bruckheimer, high-production-values, feel-good action flick, or a downbeat, downright scary 363 Days Later horror-fest, with Jack Cust and Dan Johnson as the only two men left alive in a lineup of undead zombies?
Your Major League ERA Leader (with an alphabetic advantage over Jake Peavy) Dan Haren takes the mound for the A's, against the oft-frightening Matt Cain for the Giants.
Still no Bradley; Duchscherer allegedly may be available out of the 'pen tonight. And for those who still despair at Chavvy still hitting so high in the batting order, here's some minor consolation: at least he ain't Happy Pete. And, FWIW, if I were an opposing manager, I'd pitch to Bonds right now before I'd pitch to DJ.
