Giants try their luck against depleted IndiansAfter a one-game detour in Oakland, where I watched the A's beat the American League Champion Cleveland Indians on Saturday night, I'm back at AT&T Park to watch some good old-fashioned National League ball, in a National League Park, with National League lineups as the Giants face …The American League Champion Cleveland Indians.The Giants are catching the Indians at a good time (if that matters, since the Giants have struggled against titans and mites this season).Lest you think hamstring strains are the sole provenance of the Giants, two Cleveland regulars - second baseman Jason Kipnis and right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall, are on the disabled list with right hammy strains.Furthermore, the Giants will not see Opening Day starter and recent All-Star Corey Kluber in the series.The Indians purposely crafted their rotation out the break so Kluber would not have to hit in a National League park because he had a back injury this season.The question is, can the Giants pitch to anyone?Left-hander Matt Moore carries his league-worst 6.04 ERA to the mound in the series opener Monday night.More doom and gloom followed the Giants home from San Diego, with Cueto on the DL, Brandon Belt nursing a wrist sprain and a series loss against the Padres.Funny thing about baseball:Had Buster Posey hit his bases-loaded drive to left about 3 feet farther in Saturday night's game, he would have had a grand slam, the Giants probably would have won and even with Jeff Samardzija losing big Sunday the series victory would have been viewed as "a step forward."The Padres hit two three-run homers off Samardzija on Sunday.All this led a numbers wonk on another website to write a column based simply on math to say the Giants are doomed unless the blow up their entire roster and fill it eight players with uppercut swings who can hit 25 a year.If the pitching staff can curtail mistakes that lead to frustrating homers, and the front office can add a little more pop via trade, free agency and their system, they can shrink that run differential significantly by squeezing it from both sides.Brandon Belt is out again with a wrist injury.Henry Schulman is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.

- US expedites entry process for some international travelers
By Spud Hilton - Thursday Jul 13, 2017
For travelers who have conditional approval for Global Entry status — but who are stuck in the limbo of booking an interview four to six months off — there is now a back door.[...] five of them.Under the Enrollment on Arrival program introduced July 7, travelers who have completed the first phase of Global Entry paperwork will be able to complete the required interview at Customs and Border Protection — without an appointment — the next time they return to the United States through one of five airports, including San Francisco International.To take advantage of the unscheduled interview, travelers must be returning on an international flight, not domestic, Gabris said, and passengers should expect the interview to take a little longer than the average customs process.
- Herb Lee, SF’s first Chinese American police officer, dies
By Steve Rubenstein - Friday Nov 10, 2017
Herb Lee, the first Chinese American cop in San Francisco, thought the way to help a troubled kid was to take him fishing for striped bass on San Francisco Bay. And that’s what he did, thousands of times, over the course of his 30-year career. “My dad grew up with nothing,” his son John said. “It was his way of helping a kid who started out with as little as he did.” Herbert Patrick Lee, who died Nov. 1 of colon cancer at the age of 84, was a native of San Francisco and a student at San Francisco State University. He served for two years in the U.S. Navy. In 1957, according to the San Francisco Police Department, he became the force’s first Chinese American officer.
