Gotta Love The Bats So Far

The Giants have just played 4 games in this young season. Three of them in Arizona and one so far in Colorado.

Yes, these are both hitter friendly parks, but you still have to be impressed with the Giants offense!

The pitching will come along and if they can keep the runs flowing, this could be a fun/good team to watch!

We have already seen Hector Sanchez step up and show his skills with the bat. Him behind the plate is not sacrificing the teams offense like it would have if Chris Stewart was the backup catcher.

4 games down…. 158 still to go… Stay tuned!

Still No Cain Deal

Everyday that passes is a day closer to Opening Day. It’s also closer to the to the day that Matt Cain and the Giants would like to have an extension signed.

Which brings me to the question… How much is too much money for a Cain deal? Do you think he should get a deal like Barry Zito? We all know how that ended up. Fans wish that contract would be up and there is still 2 seasons left!

Do Giants Have Enough Offense To Win NL West In 2012?

Happy New Years Giants fans! Let’s hope it will be a healthy 2012 for the San Francisco Giants!

The offensive upgrades have been bringing in Melky Cabrera and Angel Pagan via trades. This offense will be much better in 2012 with a healthy Buster Posey and Freddy Sanchez. Let’s not forget that Pablo Sandoval also missed some time.

Do you believe the Giants have enough to win the NL West in 2012?

Shortstop Rumors, Brandon Crawford

The San Francisco Giants have recently been linked to shortstop Alex Gonzalez. Brian Sabean is making it clear that the Giants are out of the Jose Reyes and Jimmy Rollins sweepstakes.

Brandon Crawford tells me that he hears the rumors swirling, but they don’t bother him. They just drive him to work harder.

You can check out Crawford’s offseason insights that he shared with me at SF Giants Rumors.

Giants In Play For A Shortstop

It’s been reported that the Giants made a 2-year offer to Willie Bloomquist before he re-signed with the Diamondbacks. The Giants are looking for a fallback option incase Brandon Crawford can get things going at the plate.

It’s still early in the offseason but it seems pretty clear that the Giants aren’t in play for Jose Reyes.

Thoughts On Shortstop Targets

With the World Series close to being over. It’s time to start thinking about possible signing and trades.

The Giants have some holes to fill. First and foremost is they need a leadoff hitter. They can use an upgrade at shortstop and Jose Reyes or Jimmy Rollins can fill both those needs. If the G-Men decide to give the job to someone in house. The shortstop will be Brandon Crawford. I like the kid, and he’s been working on his swing in the AFL. He’s got a hot bat going over there.

What’s your thoughts on the Giants possible shortstop targets?

Offseason

It’s not officially the offseason yet, but it is for the San Francisco Giants. It’s time to kick the tires on ways to improve this team.

The latest rumor is the Giants are linked to CC Sabathia. Let’s not get to caught up in this rumor. Our pitching isn’t the problem right now. The Giants need to figure out a way to boost this offense next year. Look for the team to upgrade at the shortstop and outfield positions.

Thoughts on Beltran

Carlos Beltran has a wish list. He’s said that the Giants need a leadoff hitter before they even try to resign him.

Scott Boras is looking for a 5 or 6 year deal for Beltran. Good luck with that Mr. Boras! I don’t see the Giants or any other team for that matter giving Beltran that many years. The longest deal I see Beltran getting is a 3 year deal. He’s getting older and now is almost certain to hit the DL at least once a year. Of course I’m just assuming.

Thoughts all I have for you today!

Ryan Vogelsong 2011 – Willie Mac Award Winner

Congratulations to Ryan Vogelsong on winning the 2011 – Willie Mac award! Vogelsong has taken advantage of Barry Zito’s first injury by stealing the starters job and never giving it back.

Giants fans should be happy to know Vogelsong will be back in 2012. He’s arbitration eligible so he’s not going anywhere.
