Tony: Still streaking, but not as good as Texas.
JJ: Like Texas, feasted on National League in interleague.
Tony: Need early-season Ethier, not the guy of last few weeks.
JJ: 22-8 since May 22. They are who we thought they were.
Tony: Ok, it's for real. Trout may be in MVP race.
JJ: Recent struggles have allowed Giants back into race.
Tony: Zimmerman is not right, which is a huge blow.
JJ: I always thought Tony was a weird wuss anyways.
Tony: This team was better when Chapman was a robot.

Tony: Beltran's still awesome, team still hanging around.

JJ: If Alvarez is coming around, could keep 'em in contention.
Tony: Beachy injury leaves them vulnerable.
