The Giants are going to bring back an old road jersey

The website Sportslogos.net hears “from a reliable source” that the Giants are going to bring back their old interlocking “SF” road jerseys as a road alternate next season.  It’s supposed to be a slight update of this number:

Eh.  I’m kind of partial to their current look with the block “San Francisco” on it.  But I guess it beats a black jersey or something equally lame.

You can’t pick your family and no one knows that better than Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford. His sister Amy married Astros starter Gerrit Cole in November 2016, so the two players are brothers-in-law.

The two players have matched up against each other 18 times in the past, as Cole spent his first five seasons in the National League with the Pirates. Cole often won that battle, holding Crawford to four hits — all singles — in 18 plate appearances.

Crawford finally got the better of Cole on Tuesday night, hitting a line drive into the appropriately-named Crawford Boxes at Minute Maid Park for a two-run home run, cutting the Astros’ lead to 5-2.
