Today is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. This year, for the first time, this day holds personal significance for me. Yesterday was supposed to be the due date for my second child. My husband and I were overjoyed when I found out I was expecting again. We were waiting for the second trimester before posting it on Facebook but I was telling pretty much everyone I came into contact with that I was pregnant. We were deciding on names.

On the field, my job’s to make it work.” CEO Larry Baer said there’s no rush to find a replacement and that Brian Sabean will run the show until the newcomer comes aboard, preferably sometime next month with the GM meetings on the docket in early November. Bochy, who guided the Giants to three World Series titles but oversaw the … [Read more...] about Bruce Bochy on Giants’ next boss: ‘My job is to make it work’
