lineup. He might not be able to play everyday which would be fine to get other guys playing time. I’m just not sure who I would sit down to get him in the game. Randy Winn is the most consistent player we have had. Aaron Rowand plays center and the Giants want Fred Lewis in left. I think I might just keep moving Winn around and whatever outfielder gets a day off that’s where I would put Winn. I’m still not sold on if I were the Giants if I would do it. It’s just hard to pass up on a power bat like Sheffield’s that’s available for only $400,000. I’m sure he will be signed soon. Just not sure what team will jump out there and snag him.
- Emmanuel Burriss went 2-5 scoring 3 runs.
- Rich Aurilia went 3-4 with 2 RBI’s.
- Pablo Sandoval went 2-5 with 3 RBI’s.
- Andres Torres went 2-5 with 1 RBI and scored 2 runs.
and then Posey hits a bullet to the left center gap for a double. That was the only hit Johnson gave up in 2 innings. Zito gave up a couple singles and struck out one in 2 innings.
heard the lady in front of us in line say the lines are shorter on the other side of the stadium. My girlfriend and I told our friends to wait in line and we will walk over and check it out. We ended up walking up to the side gate and there was a really short line that no one was in. Everyone got on the two outside lines, so we called our friends over and we got in AT&T park within a min after the park opened.
Bengie Molina was talking to my girlfriend in this picture. Should I be mad? lol

The word on Manny Ramirez right now is that him and Scott Boras are considering an offer
from the Giants. The offer is 3 years and a club option for the 4th year. I have not been able to find out how much per year.
Manny make perfect sense for the Giants. They will get their number 4 hitter that they have been looking for. This is a guy that would be able to change the outlook of game by himself. With the good starting pitching that the Giants have. They should pay the money for Manny Ramirez. Like they said on MLB Network. “Manny is a division changer. With the pitching and Manny the Giants will be the favorites in the NL West.
The outfield is already set with Aaron Rowand, Randy Winn and Fred Lewis. Fred Lewis will move to the bench and Manny will be in Left Field. Fred Lewis would still be getting a lot of playing time. He can play all 3 outfield positions. He can also come in for defense in the late innings. Now it’s time to play the waiting game and see what Manny decides to do. I’m sure he will want to go back to the Dodgers. AT&T park is not a hitter friendly park.
