Must Have Book For Hardcore Giants Fans!

Hey Giants fans or just any baseball fans that love the history of baseball. I recently have been asked to review a book called Giants Past & Present. It’s a must have book for Giants fans and really any baseball fan that loves the game! It has history from the New York Giants to the San Francisco Giants. Breaks down, owners, players and general managers. It has a ton of cool pictures of your favorite Giants.

 

The author of the book Dan Fost was kind enough to do a Q&A with me. The Q&A is posted at SF Giants Rumors. The title is “Q&A With Dan Fost – Author Of Giants Past & Present, Win A Copy!“. That’s right, win a copy is part of the title. All you have to do is go to that post of the Q&A, and leave a comment. Tell us who was your favorite Giant player of the past and why? Then you can have a chance to win an autographed book. It’s as simple as that. If you don’t win. You can still purchase the book at www.giantspastandpresent.com.

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.

Posey, Bumgarner – Top 50 Prospects

The Giants have two prospects that made the MLB.com’s top 50 prospects. The two players are Buster Posey and Maddison Bumgarner. Posey was ranked 4th and Bumgarner was ranked #10. The sad thing is we only had 2 of the top 50, but at least our two were in the top ten.

 

A lot of Giants fans are excited to see what these two guys can do. They did both play in a game together last year for the Giants. This was when the Giants got spanked by the Dodgers. Bumgarner pitched a scoreless inning with Posey behind the plate. Then Posey got his first major league hit the next inning.

 

For more insights from me on these two players. Go SF Giants Rumors! I have the scouting reports and more thoughts. These two guys will be part of our future, and lets get the future starting in 2010!

Thoughts on Big Bad Vlad

I have received emails from a lot of Giants fans. Asking me what I thought about different players that could be options for the Giants.

 

I was asked what I thought about the Giants going after Vladimir Guerrero. He has since signed with the Texas Rangers. Big bad Vlad wouldn’t have worked in San Francisco. He would need to stay in the American League as a DH. Vlad did battle some injuries, but when he was in the lineup he could still swing it. He hit .295 in 100 games. His homers were down to 15 this year. Which has been his lowest since 1997 when he played 90 games that year for the Montreal Expos.

 

Vlad can’t play the outfield. That’s the main reason he needs to stay in the AL. He just needs to focus on swinging the bat, and keeping himself healthy if he wants to stay around the game longer. I have no doubt that he can still swing it. It’s just his time has come and gone for playing right field.
