The Atlanta Braves and the San Francisco Giants face off in an MLB showdown at Oracle Park on Monday.

The San Francisco Giants are 67-73 overall and have won two straight. In each of the last two games, the throwing has been good. The Giants offense was strong at the start of the season, but it slipped. The Giants are averaging 4.38 points per game, which ranks them 14th in the league. Joc Pederson has hit 22 home runs and 62 RBIs so far this season.

On the other side of this game, the Braves are 87-53 overall, but they are coming off a loss on Sunday. The pitcher really struggled to give up eight runs and that led to the one-run loss. The Braves are averaging 4.98 points per game, which is second in the league. Austin Riley hit 36 ​​homers and had 90 RBIs. In this game, the attack must be good.

On the mound for the Braves is Spencer Strider who sits with a 10-4 record and a 2.69 ERA. In his last start against the A’s, he went six innings, allowing two hits and two runs.

On the mound for the Giants will be Alex Cobb who sits with a 5-6 record and a 3.68 ERA. Cobb has been inconsistent at times, but they need the right Cobb here.

The Braves are 5-0 in Strider’s last five starts. The Giants are 1-6 in their last seven games as a home underdog. Over bets are 4-0-1 in Strider’s last five road starts. Over bets are 3-0-1 in the Giants’ last four games against a right-handed starter.

I don’t expect many points from both teams in this game. Strider sits with a 2.69 ERA and allowed just two runs in his last start. Cobb sits with a 3.68 ERA but he’s going to slow down the Braves’ bats enough to keep this game underscored. Save the sub to cash out easily.

San Francisco isn’t ready for monkeypox, despite what we’ve learned from COVID Fri, 08 Jul 2022 11:03:11 +0000 Days after Adam Fuller attended a big party over Pride weekend, he received a disturbing message in a group thread. It was a screenshot of party organizers alerting attendees that someone at the event had tested positive for monkeypox.

Fuller got to work. “There were so many people there that it’s almost impossible to know if I had contact with this person or not,” he said. He researched the disease, learning that it belongs to the smallpox family, is transmitted by skin-to-skin contact, and that there is an effective vaccine even after exposure. His doctor referred him to Strut, a Castro District health center run by the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. But when he reached out, Fuller was told he wasn’t eligible.

The reason: a limited supply of vaccines. Despite months of advance warning that monkeypox cases were rising and a 40% rise in cases citywide in just one week, Strut only has 60 doses of the Jynneos vaccine.

It’s an oddly familiar and infuriating scenario. Two and a half years into a global pandemic, why are we so ill-prepared for monkeypox?

Many saw it coming. Tyler TerMeer, CEO of the AIDS Foundation, said they feared they would only receive a few dozen doses of the vaccine before Pride. The disease has largely affected members of the gay community, which, through its many programs, the organization is well prepared to serve.

“We knew there were limited cases in the United States at that time, but it was increasing and the number of cases could probably increase here in the Bay Area after the events of Pride,” said Ms. TerMeer said.

This prediction turned out to be true. The alert Fuller received was sent to thousands of people. Outrage ensued, with many taking to Twitter to decry the vaccine shortage.

The city is completely unprepared for a small outbreak of monkeypox. Once again, we find ourselves responding to a public health crisis for which we have had ample time to prepare.

According to guidelines from the city’s public health department, anyone attending two parties where cases have been recorded is eligible for the shot. But the city’s vaccination clinic, which offers vaccines on a first-come, first-served basis, is so overwhelmed that it has suspended all COVID and low-cost vaccines due to monkeypox demand, and notes on her website that due to staff shortages she may I am not aware of voicemails.

The AIDS Foundation faces a similar increase. Within a day of setting up a monkeypox vaccine hotline, she received 500 calls. As of Wednesday afternoon, 300 people exposed to monkeypox were on the waiting list for a vaccine.

The Ministry of Public Health told me on Thursday that they had just received 2,000 doses and were working out where to deploy them. But that may not be enough yet and the supply is low. Last week, the US Department of Health and Human Services announced that it plans to distribute just 56,000 doses across the country. An order for 2.5 million doses from Danish manufacturer Jynneos is not expected to arrive for months.

In the meantime, the lack of preparation and attention from the federal government and drugmakers has reignited a deep trauma for queer people since the early years of the AIDS epidemic.

“I am a person who has lived with HIV for 18 years and I am very concerned that we are woefully unprepared in this country to respond to it,” TerMeer said. “It feels like that urgency isn’t there, which is hard to digest when you’re someone who identifies as queer and knows the history of what happened to our community.”

Next week, the AIDS Foundation plans to hold a town hall on monkeypox, and Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, who represents the Castro, has called for a hearing on the city’s response. But for the thousands of people who received exposure notifications after Pride, who are seeking timely testing and vaccines, a hearing is too little too late.

As for Fuller, he is in quarantine at home, but not for fear of transmitting monkeypox. At some point during the Pride festivities, he contracted COVID-19. The irony is not lost on him. “My challenge right now is figuring out if my symptoms are related to monkeypox, or is it just COVID?” he said.

Until San Francisco catches up, he can’t test to find out.

San Francisco 49ers say they have no plans to release Jimmy Garoppolo Tue, 29 Mar 2022 05:57:48 +0000

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch spoke to the media from the NFL meeting site in Palm Beach, Florida earlier this week. Needless to say, one of the main topics of conversation was the status of veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

It wasn’t until Feb. 1 that Garoppolo held a press conference shortly after San Francisco fell to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game that appeared to be his last as a member of the 49ers.

Fast forward two months and Garoppolo remains on the roster. That comes with the market for quarterback needy teams drying up following blockbuster trades in the NFL world. It also led to increased speculation that San Francisco might just be forced to release the Super Bowl quarterback.

Speaking to the media, Lynch pushed that back in a big way.

“I don’t foresee that. He’s too good a player. I think Jimmy will play for us or play for somebody else,” Lynch said Monday of the 49ers potentially releasing Garoppolo, via ESPN Nick Wagoner. “He’s too good of a player not to be.”

It’s very good and dandy. It’s also a public relations strategy on the part of the 49ers’ front office. Financially, there’s no scenario in which the 49ers can reasonably field Garoppolo and his capped $26.95 million for the 2022 season. That’s especially true with San Francisco gearing up for the No. 3 pick. of 2021, Trey Lance, to start under center.

The San Francisco 49ers still seem to be looking for a trade with Jimmy Garoppolo

Lynch covered the financial aspect of this situation when addressing the media, ultimately indicating that they would be fine if Garoppolo was on the books in Week 1.

“We appreciate the strength in this position,” Lynch said. “To be completely blunt, though, when you do a trade of this magnitude (for Lance), most of our options didn’t include Jimmy on our books. On our team. But you still have to adapt and a streak A lot of things happened that it didn’t work out. But that’s not a bad thing, though. We feel positive about it. And we’ll make it work.”

The overriding conclusion here is that San Francisco is sending a message to the limited number of teams that might be interested in Garoppolo that he won’t be available in free agency. On the contrary, they will have to abandon the capital project. From there, said team would then have to restructure or expand Garoppolo to lower his 2022 cap number. Whether any team will take the bait remains to be seen.

A series of circumstances prevented San Francisco from trading Garoppolo earlier in the offseason. In addition to the hit trades I mentioned above, the quarterback recently underwent shoulder surgery. According to Lynch, that also played a role in keeping Garoppolo on the 49ers’ books.

MORE FORBESWhere Jimmy Garoppolo and the San Francisco 49ers stand after a string of blockbuster NFL trades

“I think ultimately the teams that we were closest with, the surgery gave them a break and they ended up going in other directions,” Lynch said.

The idea of ​​giving up draft picks to a high-priced quarterback entering a contract season and recovering from shoulder surgery can’t be considered appealing to rival teams. Even then, the 49ers’ public stance that Garoppolo won’t be released ups the ante a bit.

Jimmy Garoppoo Trading Market Limited

This is the major backdrop that Lynch and Co. cannot publicly ignore. Garoppolo’s service market has thinned since reports of his shoulder injury became a public record.

The Indianapolis Colts were previously tied to Garoppolo. Earlier in March, they completed a trade for Atlanta star Matt Ryan. The Cleveland Browns and New Orleans Saints were also on a potential Garoppolo trade. Cleveland completed a blockbuster for Deshaun Watson while the Saints re-signed Jameis Winston to be their likely Week 1 starter.

None of that takes into account the Denver Broncos making a move for former Super Bowl-winning quarterback Russell Wilson and the Washington Commanders jumping in by trading for a struggling Carson Wentz.

Where does that leave the 49ers when it comes to Garoppolo’s trade market? Not in a great place. The Carolina Panthers, Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans are three teams with questions left at center ahead of the 2022 NFL Draft in late April. Neither Carolina nor Houston seem interested in Garoppolo. Meanwhile, it’s foolish to believe that two division rivals in the 49ers and Seahawks would pull off a trade of this ilk.

In an attempt to publicly sway the dynamic, Lynch told reporters Monday that a number of teams are still in contact with San Francisco regarding Garoppolo, but those conversations are “fluid.”

Outside of a surprise team like the New York Giants showing an interest in Garoppolo, this should be limited to the three organizations I mentioned above as needy entities.

Jimmy Garoppolo’s finances remain on the books of the San Francisco 49ers

In an interesting development, Lynch told reporters that Garoppolo’s status has no bearing on the NFL team’s free agent plans.

“Our plan was our plan and we were able to do everything we set out to do in free agency, Lynch said. “We knew we wanted to fill that corner role, and a number of other deals that we could put together. And that was our plan whether we got Jimmy or not.”

Some will point to San Francisco’s focus on signing All-Pros Deebo Samuel and Nick Bosa to massive contract extensions this offseason. Given the large receiver market, Samuel is looking at well north of $25 million a year. As for Bosa, his next contract is expected to exceed the record $28 million that TJ Watt received annually in his extension with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Those who point the finger at finances here and conclude that Garoppolo staying on San Francisco’s books prevented anything from happening are missing the point. Any new deals for Samuel and Bosa likely wouldn’t increase their salary cap too much for 2022. Rather, the big money would come in 2023 and beyond when the NFL’s salary cap is expected to rise significantly with the new TV deal bringing in record revenues.

That said, it’s foolish to believe that reaching Garoppolo’s $26.95 million cap for the 2022 season hasn’t impacted San Francisco’s free agent plans. The team’s only significant signing came in the form of former Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Charvarius Ward. Other than that, the 49ers have been largely inactive in free agency — bringing in second-wave options on cheap contracts.

MORE FORBESSan Francisco 49ers target special teams in series of profitable moves

Currently just $1.92 million under the cap, it’s hard to fathom that the cap Garoppolo hit hasn’t directly impacted the 49ers in free agency.

Either way, it’s something San Francisco will need to work out before and after the 2022 NFL Draft. In its current cap situation, this team wouldn’t even be able to sign their draft class.

None of this takes into account the dynamic that would come with Garoppolo remaining on the 49ers roster heading into the offseason program. San Francisco used three first-round picks and replaced Lance last year. They gave him the keys to the kingdom. Garoppolo took it like a champion last season. Expecting the same to ring true this summer and in training camp just doesn’t seem likely.

Regardless of what the 49ers brass want us to believe publicly, the Jimmy Garoppolo situation is soon coming to a head here one way or another. It’s the simple reality.

49ers News: Is the Jimmy Garoppolo era over in San Francisco? Tue, 28 Dec 2021 20:01:00 +0000


Now that it looks like Jimmy Garoppolo could miss a long time, it’s fair to wonder if the number 10 played his last snap for the 49ers. How will the Jimmy Garoppolo era be remembered if this is the case? We asked this question on Oh, Hey There! podcast with Leo Luna and special guest Jason Aponte.

“As far as the Jimmy Garoppolo era is concerned,” Aponte said, “it will always stay on my mind. I’ll stay in this. I understand what’s going on now, but I don’t want to be a prisoner of the moment things happened. 2019 will forever be a season that I will always remember. Obviously you will never forget him because of the way it ended. But he was part of it.

He participated in the revival of this franchise. In 2017, as he was doing what he was doing in those five games, people had the thought that a lot of us had. “Dude, wait till this guy finds out about the offense.” Wait until you put guns around this guy. Wait until he really starts to process everything. Either way, I have no hard feelings with the guy. He resuscitated this franchise a lot for a few years, and I have to give him credit for that. “

Jason is right to bring up the context of Garoppolo’s arrival in 2017. The 49ers were a team that had lost 24 of their last 27 games before their first start to the Bears. Then, all of a sudden, the young and handsome former heir of Tom Brady arrives, and the team wins five straight games to close the season. This injection of hope goes a long way with a fan base that has grown used to losing in recent years.

We all know what followed – injuries and inconsistent play sandwiched around a Super Bowl race in 2019. Personally, what I will remember the most from Jimmy’s time here is how good it is. ‘was polarizing. Few players in franchise history have split a fan base as much as Jimmy GQ has. Colin Kaepernick was undoubtedly polarizing, but it had more to do with reasons other than football than with anything going between the white lines. Garoppolo could cause shock arguments, even after a Week 7 random match.

All told, Garoppolo’s record as a San Francisco starter goes down the history books as 30-14. While there is certainly a lot of context needed to fully explain this record, that stuff tends to wear off over the years. Ultimately I think people will remember that he started the seventh Super Bowl in franchise history and most Sundays played by Jimmy Garoppolo ended feeling great.
