Does it bother you that Colin Kaepernick was seen wearing a Dolphins cap?

Leading Off: Kap's cap and other little points to ponder

The good: 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick celebrating the Fourth of July with friends, wearing shorts, no shirt – with that physique, why bother? – and a baseball cap.


The ugly: Other than typing in capital letters? Masses of fans filling the social media morass with whiny posts about what a scoundrel Kaepernick is for wearing non-49ers gear. It makes one wish for common-sense tests for people who want Twitter privileges.

More good: Tim Lincecum pitching seven strong innings Monday against the New York Mets, striking out a season-high 11 while walking only one.

The bad: The sixth inning, an increasingly predictable midgame bugaboo for Lincecum. This time, shaky defense contributes to two runs – and a blown Giants lead.

The ugly: The Mets scoring the winning run on a 16th-inning error by shortstop Brandon Crawford, who saved a run earlier in the game with a diving stop and ferocious throw to first.

Final good: DeMarcus Cousins, 6-foot-11, 270 pounds; age 22; averaged 20 points and 11 rebounds during the 2012-2013 season.

The bad: He played in 75 games but was not on the court at the end of eight of those – 11 percent – because he fouled out or was ejected. And he led the league in technical fouls.

The ugly: The team's prospects with someone else playing center.
