Snow in September?
The less said about tonight's game against the Rockies, the better, but we did hear a minor nice bit of news: J.T. Snow will retire as a Giant after signing a one-day contract
that will see him take the field at the start of Saturday night's game. Snow, who was a Giants fixture for years, finished his active career with a lackluster half-season with the Red Sox, but has since then had a number of jobs with the Giants, including some good turns in the broadcast booth. His career stats will now show 1 appearance in 2008 and that he will officially retire thereafter.
Apparently, Snow won't actually actively play in the game or come to the plate, as the plan is for him to be subbed out before the first pitch, which is too bad. It is at least technically possible that this weekend's games against the Dodgers will be meaningful, although right now it's looking as though the hated Dodgers will have clinched at least a tie for the division by the end of tonight.
