Interesting. I still give ratings, I just don't attach them to the posts. I like hearing comments like this, because it tells me what I've written sounds like a 9 or 10. As for the rating I actually gave it, I couldn't resist ... I gave it a magnificent 7.

Also, I peeked ahead. One thing I haven't mentioned is that I chose the ten songs for the entire year back in January. Didn't write the posts, I do that each week, but I know what the 2011 Ten will be, and there is one song where I have seen the band live ... three times, actually. I'll keep everyone in suspense until next week.

Thought Drake would have won that one, but then again, I'm old now. Adele does get my vote for Best Carpool Karaoke.

I wonder if we might look to the annual Willie Mac Award, given to the most inspirational Giant as chosen by the players and staff, for at least a hint of what players might still have that aura. Here they are (some won twice): Jack Clark, Larry Herndon, Joe Morgan, Darrell Evans, Bob Brenly, Mike Krukow, Chris Speier, José Uribe, Dave Dravecky, Steve Bedrosian, Robby Thompson, Mike Felder, Kirt Manwaring, Mark Leiter, Mark Carreon, Shawon Dunston, J. T. Snow, Jeff Kent, Marvin Benard, Ellis Burks, Mark Gardner, Benito Santiago, David Bell, Marquis Grissom, Mike Matheny, Omar Vizquel, Bengie Molina, Matt Cain, Andrés Torres, Ryan Vogelsong, Buster Posey, Hunter Pence, Madison Bumgarner, Matt Duffy, Javier López, Brandon Crawford, Nick Hundley, Will Smith Not all of them fit the bill, but overall it's a nice list.
