Giants host improving World Series-champion CubsMatt Moore faces the Cubs in the opener of a three-game series on Monday night.The last time the Cubs played at AT&T Park, Moore pitched eight shutout innings and handed Game 4 of the Division Series to a bullpen that gave up four runs in the ninth.The 103-win Cubs went on to win the World Series and the Giants went home.For the Cubs, who were supposed to be a force for years to come (like the 2017 Dodgers), they are one defeat plus one Brewers win from being out of a playoff position on Aug. 7.The Cubs are 18-7 against left-handed starters and start the series against Moore, who cannot get out of his own way on the mound.Everything now is about setting himself up for 2018 (assuming the Giants exercise their $9 million option).Three years after Yusmeiro Petit saved the Giants with six shutout innings in the 18-inning playoff win at Washington, and two years after the Giants bade him farewell because he started to get expensive, he is Yusmeiro Petit-ing again for the Angels.Suarez made 12 starts and 10 relief appearances as a 26-year-old rookie.Suarez disappeared from the map in 2017 because he hurt his shoulder at the start of the minor-league season after not making the big club.Since his activation and promotion in July, Suarez has looked like a better version of his 2016 self.The Giants need to improve their bullpen for 2018, and Suarez could play a crucial role as that swingman, who not only can start (which he wants to do) and provide long relief when things get out of hand early, but has the mental equipment to provide an old-style, multiple-inning save.The Giants have actually outhomered their opponents 10-6 since July 25, and to borrow a joke from one of my Twitter followers, no, I’m not counting the four that Eduardo Nuñez has hit for Boston.Henry Schulman is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.

- Big Tech’s Half-Hearted Response To Fake News And Election Hacking
By Cale Guthrie Weissman - Friday Sep 15, 2017
Despite big hand waves, Facebook, Google, and Twitter aren’t doing enough to stop misinformation.
Every day a new front emerges in Big Tech’s battle against fake news. Signs of trouble reared their head during the election, when hyper-partisan misinformation began materializing on Facebook. Months later it became known that many of these sites had been weaponized in a larger misinformation campaign spearheaded by external players, including the Russian government.
- Giants take series from Cubs behind another Bumgarner gem
By Henry Schulman - Wednesday Aug 9, 2017
Doubt that he might return as the same pitcher, doubt that his once-separated shoulder would hold up, even a sliver of doubt that he would remain in the Giants' long-term plans after a selfish act.The big fella held the Cubs to an Albert Almora Jr. solo homer in a 3-1 victory Wednesday that gave the Giants the series against the defending World Series champs and ended a 5-3 homestand.After a rough two games off the disabled list, Bumgarner has pitched 26 innings in his past four starts and allowed four earned runs.The Giants broke a 1-1 tie in the seventh when three left-handed hitters --Parker got Span home with a single through the left-side hole and an aggressive "send" by third-base coach Phil Nevin.Bochy had a bit of fun when asked how he thought Hunter Strickland would be greeted in his first game against the Nats since he threw at Bryce Harper to start that Memorial Day brawl at AT&T Park.On Wednesday he hit the first of three singles against Kyle Hendricks in the second inning and scored the game's first run.Sandoval also made a nice play at third, diving to stop a Zobrist grounder throwing him out from his knees on one hop that Ryder Jones scooped as if he had played first base his whole career.The Cubs tied the game 1-1 on the third-inning homer by Almora, a destroyer of left-handed pitchers regardless of their pedigree.

- Names & Faces: Julio Jones, Curtis Samuel
Wednesday Jul 26, 2017
The Atlanta Falcons’ receiver is paying SCUBA divers to find his diamond earring valued at more than $100,000, which is sitting on the murky bottom of a Georgia lake.WXIA-TV reported that Jones lost it when he hit a boat wake and took a spill while jet skiing in Lake Lanier, about 50 miles outside Atlanta.The divers have been searching the lake bottom, hoping to capture a flashlight’s reflection off the jewelry amid old trees that have been submerged since the man-made lake’s creation in the 1950s.The Carolina Panthers’ rookie was dropped off for his first day at NFL camp in Wofford, S.C., by his mother, Nicole Samuel.According to Panthers reporter Bill Voth, Samuel, who went to Erasmus Hall High in Brooklyn, N.Y., said that “his mom needed the car, so she’s driving it back.”
