Our destiny is our own. The Giants aren't playing tonight, so it's entirely up to Arizona as they make their tenth attempt to crack the glass ceiling of one-half game ahead. The previous nine have seen the D-backs goes 6-3 - but whenever they won, the Giants did as well, so were able to keep pace. A victory this evening would also ensure the team will be no worse than tied for first-place at SnakePitFest on Saturday, so I'm entirely in favor of that. [As an aside, a large batch of T-shirts went out today, so people should begin getting them in the next few days, depending on where they are in the country.]

What, no Paul Goldschmidt? Xavier Nady at 1st? Right, that's it: I'm forming a mob with torches and storming Chase Field. Who's with me? Well, I suppose, better now than on Saturday... Picture ban is still in effect for tonight's game - and if we win, might be extended. I have no intention of rocking the boat there....
