Winter Meetings have come and gone and it’s still quiet in San Francisco. Sure there has been a lot of hot rumors going around, but Sabean hasn’t pulled the trigger yet. The Uggla rumors is still as hot as ever. The last I heard was the Marlins want Jonathan Sanchez, Clayton Tanner and a mid-level pitching prospect. To read my thoughts on this trade rummor click here.
I also heard that the Giants organization is doing well financially. Which means they can decide to take a little pay cut and sign a big player to keep the Giants fans happy. You will want to read my thoughts on this. I explain the difference between the Giants and Yankees. To read the rest of this rumor and my reactions to it click here.

All The Latest SF Giants Rumors Updated Daily!
Tonight is the final Brad Penny start of the season. The Giants still have a shot of making the playoffs. We would have to win out and the Rockies will have to lose the rest of their games. Pretty much it’s slim to none of a chance. I’m already passed the disapointed stage. These Giants still had a very good season. I mean a good season is making the playoffs, but this team wasn’t expected to still be in the playoff race at this time. I just started a site that I’m going to use for Giants rumors and anything Giants that I want to post. The site is www.sfgiantsbaseball.net. It’s still at the begining stages so it’s not everything that I want it to be just yet.
Here is some posts that have been added.

It’s been a while since I have blogged. I have just been way to busy to do anything. I have still been talking and watching baseball. I don’t miss any games. If I can’t watch them. I’m listening or watching play by play on my phone. No I don’t have an Iphone, so I can’t get the games live on my phone. lol I can only see the pitch by pitch. lol
This season for the Giants has been magical. No matter how it ends. It will go down as a great/exciting year. I really loved the trade to get Freddy Sanchez even though he’s only played 13 games with us so far. This guy is a great player and his bat will be nice in our everyday lineup. I liked the Garko deal too, but he just hasn’t got hot yet. He did have one good game in Colorado where he hit 2 homeruns. Right now as I’m writing this blog. Brad Penny is making his first start as a Giant. I also like this pick up. Were basicly picking him up for nothing and he’s our #5 starter. That’s a great #5 starter cause I think he’s way better then a #5 starter. He’s going to be fine now that he’s back in the NL West. He’s not facing the Yankees over here.
The Giants have called up Buster Posey today after saying they were not going to bring him up this year. This is very exciting for Giants fans. He’s our future catcher and we know he’s got some game in him. He’s getting his chance to audition for the Giants, so they can decide to bring Bengie back next season or not. I’m sure Bengie is all of a sudden going to be able to play. Which is what I just heard. He said he’s going to be able to start tomorrow. I’m sure we will be seeing a Posey start soon too.
If you were to ask me at the beging of the season if I would be happy with the Giants record right now. I would have said hellllll yeah!!!!! Well now I want more wins (I’m greedy like that). I want them to make the playoffs and their behind the Rockies by 1 game. I think they can win the wild card spot with the pitching they have, but they just need to get some offense going.

With the first half of the season over. No one including myself expected the Giants to have a record like they have. We knew they would have a chance to win games cause they had a good starting staff on paper. Well they starters came out and pitched just as well as advertised!
doing that and has been on fire as of late. He’s even starting the All Star Game for the National League. Everyone kept saying Randy Johnson would just try for 5 wins and then shut down. Randy Johnson is an intense pitcher when he’s on the mound. There is no way this guy doesn’t try to go out there and go balls out every time he takes the mound. I did expect Matt Cain to have a good year, but 10 wins by the All Star break. Wow – that’s above and beyond what anyone could have asked for by this point of the season. We have two guys (Lincecum & Cain) that can be in it for the Cy Young Award. Zito has shown some good games and some bad games, but still better than last year. Sanchez was finally going to show up what he has this year and then ended up losing his starting spot in the rotation. Then he came back to the rotation because of a Randy Johnson injury. Sanchez then tosses a “No-Hitter”!
The Giants are coming off series at home that they got swept by the Angels. Does this just mean the Giants are not as good as the better teams out there? They start a series at home tonight with the Rangers. Randy Johnson takes the mound tonight. Giants fans are hoping he can stop this little losing streak. There is also talks of the Giants skipping Jonathan Sanchez next start since he hasn’t seem to come around this season.
Okay now I don’t know why Bochy continues to bat Sandoval after Molina. I do like Bengie but he’s a very slowwwww runner! That’s not a knock on him. It’s just the reality. Everyone knows Pablo Sandoval can swing it. He’s got some pop and can flat out hit. I think it’s time the Giants move him to the third or fourth spot in the lineup. Keep him ahead of Molina so he can drive some runs in. Molina can be on 2nd base and Sandoval will get a hit and Molina won’t score. If they want Molina at the 4 spot then put Sandoval 3rd. I mean it’s not like we have a set solid middle of the lineup so why are they so stuck on batting Molina 4th and Sandoval 5th?
I’m starting to ramble on and on, so I will cut this blog short. =) Go Giants!
