Can you "jump the shark" while dressed as a "Killer" pea? Fans of the San Francisco Giants might have found out Monday night at AT&T Park when four folks in the bleachers tried to nickname a segment of the team's roster.
Did you know that Hunter Pence, Angel Pagan, Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval (head obscured by child) form the "Killer P's"? It's a riff on what the Houston Astros used to call the "B" part of their lineup, which included at times in the late 1990s and early 2000s: Craig Biggio, Derek Bell, Lance Berkman, Jeff Bagwell, Sean Berry, Carlos Beltran, Chris Burke, Eric Bruntlett, Michael Bourn, Geoff Blum, Tim Bogar, Doug Brocail and Brandon Backe.
This "P" phenomenon is not as phenomenal.
The pod costumes are great. But, as noted curmudgeon Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle wrote in April, stuff like "Killer P's" has been done. It's time to eat your peas, grab a giant Bruce Bochy head and do something with that.

Miguel Cabrera doesn't exactly need to remind us that he's really, really good at hitting baseballs. Coming into Sunday's game against the Texas Rangers, the reigning AL MVP and Triple Crown winner already led baseball in batting average and RBIs.
With an other-worldly display Sunday, the Detroit Tigers slugger showed why he's a Triple Crown candidate again. He hit three homers, going 4-for-4 and driving in five runs. He now has 11 home runs, which is one behind the AL lead.
But here's the reality check: The Tigers still lost to the Rangers 11-8 in a matchup that many think we could see again come playoff time. The Rangers have the best record in baseball at 29-15, while the Tigers are in second in the AL Central at 23-19, behind the surging Cleveland Indians.
En route to the victory, the Rangers pounded out 18 hits and scored 10 total runs in the fifth, six and seventh innings. Still, after the game, even Rangers manager Ron Washington was gushing about Cabrera's greatness:
''I've never seen a guy that puts the bat head on the ball as regular as he does, and on all pitches,'' Washington said. ''He's just a tremendous hitter. I'm very happy that he's headed to the airport.''
Phillies beat Reds with dramatic comeback: As good as Aroldis Chapman is, even this happens to him: Freddy Galvis and Erik Kratz hit back-to-back homers in the bottom of the ninth Sunday as the Philadelphia Phillies stunned the Cincinnati Reds, 3-2.
The Reds went into the eighth inning up 2-0 after Homer Bailey pitched seven scoreless innings. The Phillies got on the scoreboard in the eighth, when Chase Ultey singled in Ben Revere. Chapman, the fire-throwing Reds closer, blew his second straight save, something he's only done once before in his career.
Indians 6, Mariners 0: Justin Masterson gets his seventh win as the Indians improve to 17-4 since April 28.
Marlins 2, D-backs 1: Ricky Nolasco strikes out 11 for the Marlins.
Rays 3, Orioles 1: Matt Moore improves to 8-0 for the Rays after giving up five hits and one run in seven innings.
Braves 5, Dodgers 2: The Braves sweep the Dodgers after an eighth-inning rally.
Pirates 1, Astros 0: Pittsburgh pitcher Jeff Locke locks down Houston. The Pirates have won eight out of their last 10.
Red Sox 5, Twins 1: The Red Sox win their fifth straight in a rain-delayed game.
Cardinals 4, Brewers 2: The Cardinals beat ex-teammate Kyle Lohse for the third straight time.
Mets 4, Cubs 3: Daniel Murphy's go-ahead homer in the eighth is the difference-maker for the Mets.
Angels 6, White Sox 2: Jason Vargas out-pitches Jake Peavy for his third win of the year.
A's 4, Royals 3: Yoenis Cespedes hits an eighth-inning home run to push the A's past Royals for a three-game sweep. Each game was decided by one run.
Rockies 5, Giants 0: Carlos Gonzalez goes 2-for-3 with two RBIs as the Rockies top the Giants again.
Padres 13, Nationals 4: The Padres beat up on Dan Haren and the Nats to split their four-game series.

Juan Lagares of the New York Mets isn't going to catch that one, try as he might. It wasn't all bad for Lagares, though. He hit his first big-league homer on Sunday, a two-run shot in the seventh that helped the Mets beat the Cubs, 4-3.
• Sunday was the first time Aroldis Chapman has given up two home runs in one game.
• The Cleveland Indians have faced eight pitchers this season who have won a Cy Young Award. The most recent being Felix Hernandez, who the Indians beat 6-0 on Sunday.

Jake Peavy is the only one to have beaten the Indians.
• Before Friday's game, the Giants had beat the Rockies 10 games in a row. The Rockies won Friday, Saturday and Sunday, outscoring San Francisco 25-11.
