NO DRAMA, NO INTEREST: In Sacramento, Scott Lebar writes "anyone who has watched the range of reality shows -- hardly real, sometimes hardly shows -- knows you need key ingredients for success on this field of celebrity dreamers." Lebar: "Some require shooting from the lip. Some, shooting a caribou. Or both. For most reality genres, though, you need confessionals, confrontation and characters. Chemistry? No way. And the Giants had plenty." The Giants have several characters on the roster, including Ps Brian Wilson and Tim Lincecum and 1B Aubrey Huff, but "if fights don't break out, it's not worth watching." The Giants instead should "stick to base knocks and the amazing pennant race" (SACRAMENTO BEE, 1/25).
