    Jim Bunning, Hall of Fame pitcher and ex-US senator from Kentucky, dead

    Former U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning, a major league pitching star who took his aggressive, no-nonsense brand of competitiveness into the game of politics as a congressman and senator from Kentucky, died at the age of 85. State Sen. Damon Thayer said a Facebook post from Bunning's daughter stated that Bunning died at 11:55 p.m. on Friday. Bunning suffered a stroke last October.

If you want the glass-half-full prognosis, Yoenis Cespedes began a rehab assignment on Friday with Class A St. Lucie, going 0-for-2 with a walk and playing six innings in left field, and Steven Matz and Seth Lugo make

    This will either disappear or explode on Odell — it’s up to him

    We really won’t know the impact these missed days will have for years, maybe for decades. If the Giants finish their season in Minneapolis’ U.S. Bank Stadium next February, with confetti falling from the roof and triumph filling their hearts, then the fact Odell Beckham Jr. went missing from voluntary OTAs will be little more than a footnote to all that came after. And there will be a string of told-you-so’s cued up on Twitter. Fans, as a rule, will tolerate a lot of things from their favorite athletes, both on and off the field. They will turn the other cheek until they are out of cheeks. They will endure, absorb, justify just about just about anything. Not showing up for work … Even when that
