NL West Leader, Zito to DL, Sanchez Done!

The San Francisco Giants have a losing record since Carlos Beltran has put on the Orange and Black.

The Giants have lost 4 in a row and are now clinging to a 1-game lead in the NL West. It’s no time to panic Giants fans as we still have 9 games left of our 10 game homestand. Did I forget to mention the next 2 games are against the Diamondbacks? Win those 2 games and the G-Men are back to a 3 game lead in the NL West.

Barry Zito has been placed on the DL with a fake injury to make room for Jonathan Sanchez to be added to the roster. Sanchez will get the start Friday against the Phillies.

Freddy Sanchez is having season ending surgery tomorrow (Wednesday) on his right shoulder.

SF Giants 2010 Opener

Opening Day has come and gone. The Giants are currently on pace to win 162 games. That will more than likely not happen, because we do have Barry Zito pitching about 29 of those games. Which means the Giants will probably go 133-29 this year.  I’m only kidding….

 

The Giants looked great last night in the opener. Tim Lincecum was awesome and shined like a bright star in space. I’m just messing around with the star comment, but he did look really good. He went 7 strong innings and only allowed 4 hits. He didn’t give up any runs or walks. His velocity was around 92-95mph, so that quiet down some of the Lincecum haters that said he wasn’t going to be the same pitcher.

SF Giants Rumors – Zito Has Rust, Posey Back on a Bus

The Giants have three more games to go before they season starts. Last night Barry Zito got lit up by his former team the Oakland Athletics. I didn’t care if the Giants won or lost. The only thing I wanted out of that game was for Zito to pitch a decent game. Now that he got rocked. I’m sure his head isn’t right, and he won’t be as confident as he takes the mound in Houston.

 

Buster Posey is more than likely to start the season in Fresno. It hasn’t been announced as of yet, but he would lose a lot of AB’s at the start of the season if he made the 25 man roster. The Posey era is on hold for now.

SF Giants Update!

Hey what’s going on Giants fans (or just baseball fans)? The Giants are off to a pretty good start in Spring Training. I know, I know it’s only spring games. They don’t count, but I say we start printing the World Series tickets now! I’m only kidding!!

 

The few available roster spots are keeping the Giants players focused. Some players have got back into the mix like Kevin Frandsen. He’s back in the mix, because Emmanuel Burriss went down with an injury.

 

John Bowker is another guy that is trying to show he belongs in the Big Leagues. He done nothing but tear it up in the minor leagues. He just seems to have a brain fart in the pro’s. Like he’s forgot how to hit the ball. He does how some power that the Giants need, so if he can get the bat going. There should be no denying Bowker.

 

I also have updates on more players from the Giants Camp. Just visit SF Giants Rumors for all the latest SF Giants Rumors. There is even a recent post on how much money Pablo Sandoval and Barry Zito made last year. The kicker to that story is how much they really should have made based off their numbers!

Random Giants Thoughts

I know Pablo Sandoval is no Barry Bonds, but man is this guy fun to watch or what? He had 2 home runs in last night’s game against the Angels. This guy has a .332 AVG and is near the top in the NL. I know he could have more RBI’s if he wasn’t hitting behind Bengie, but hey he can just control what he does at the plate.
 
The Giants were getting spanked last night until they decided to make their come back. It was a little to late, but at least they didn’t just throw in the towel and wait to try till the next game. The final score was 9-7 Angels. It was looking like it was going to be a 8-0 score till the Giants started to get some stuff together.
 
I think the Giants are open to anyone that is available in a trade. I mean if a 1st baseman comes available. The Sandoval can go back to 3rd base. If they find a 3rd baseman then Pablo can go to 1st base. Even Fred Lewis hasn’t played well enough to keep his job, so we can take a corner infielder or an outfielder.
 
I’m getting people asking me what I think about Dan Uggla and other players. I don’t think Uggla is the big bat that we do need, but I do think we need more than one bat. Which means I wouldn’t mind adding that bat. Burriss is playing 2nd and is like in an 0-24 slump right now. Uggla can’t do much worse than that and has home run pop. I would be fine with adding Uggla and try to add another decent bat. I doubt were going to be able to snag a superstar through trades this year, cause the Giants do not want to part with their top prospects.

The Giants Take Game One From D-Backs – Trades?

Matt Cain took the mound and didn’t look as good as he’s looked all season, but it was good enough to get the win last night. Cain is now sitting with an 8-1 record. I’m sure some people might start to consider him as a possible Cy Young candidate for this season. He’s got an 8-1 record, 2.55 ERA and 59 K’s. Since all the draft talk is going around. Matt Cain was drafted in the 2002 draft at the #25 pick from Houston High School (TN).
 
Pablo Sandoval hit a monster shot last night that probably still hasn’t landed. It was like a Barry Bonds blast. This guy is my favorite everyday player. He just plays the game at a 100%, and has fun out there. I guess before the game Sandoval told the team that no one will give high-fives to the guy that hits the first home run. Well Juan Uribe hit one and walked into the dugout pumped up and no one even looked at him. You can see Bengie Molina trying to hold back his smile/laugh. Uribe finally just started high-fiving everyone till they gave in and reacted with excitement like him. It was funny to watch. They kept replaying it after the game.
 
The Giants send Zito to the mound tonight. Hoping he can secure the series win with the D-Backs tonight. We all know the Giants will more than likely make a trade soon, but no new names have surfaced in the trade rumors. I’m pretty much done with Fred Lewis. I want him to do good and I think he’s athletic. He’s just not able to put it all together. He strikes out half the time he’s batting. I’m willing to part with him in a trade and get a corner outfielder. We have a lot of holes, so we pretty much can get any decent player out there and plug him in somewhere. This teams needs to make more than one move to fill some holes. I’m just hoping they at least make a move soon to get the train moving in the right direction.
