All Systems Go For Opening Day!

Today is Opening Day for most teams, and it’s obvious excitement is in the air. I have logged on to MLBlogs and seen so many new blogs in the most recent activity area. I have seen blogs that I never seen before. Everyone is pumped and wants to write about it. Today is the day that every team is still in it and has a chance to be #1. I really wanted to take today off to watch some games, but I decided to work today. I’m going to be off work tomorrow, so I can watch the Giants Opening Day against the Brewers.
 
As a Giants fan I was pretty damn happy watching the Braves game last night. It was nice because the season was finally starting. Just seeing how good Derek Lowe looked. That must make all Giants fans happy to see him pitching like that for any team other than the Dodgers. =) I can’t believe the Dodgers didn’t even try to get him back. Something else must have been going on. It was not even a question if he will return to the Dodgers once he became a free agent. Everyone knew he was going to end up pitching somewhere else.
 
Since I’m also playing Fantasy Baseball this year. I did have some other interest in the Braves game. I have Brian McCann as a player on one of my teams and he did hit a 2 run home run. My other player is Shane Victorino. He didn’t do anything last night, so thanks for nothing Shane! lol
 
Well all I can do today is check scores and highlights from teams playing. I might watch the A’s and Angels game tonight. Just getting myself pumped and ready for Lincecum and the Giants tomorrow. I heard there is chance of rain tomorrow. This game better not get cancelled cause then I might have to take another day off to see their first game. =) I get Lincecum tomorrow, Johnson on wed. ( my b-day) and then I’m going to the Sharks game Thursday night. Talk about a very nice week for me. =)

John Millers thoughts on the Giants Spring Training..

Jon Miller the Giants announcer and ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball announcer was on the radio talking about the Giants Spring Training. He said the Giants had their first inter-squad game today and it was Randy Johnson against Barry Zito. Johnson faced Buster Posey and had him in an 0-2 hole

Miller thinks Fred Lewis is going to hit well this season. Said Lewis was playing hurt most of last season and still had a decent bat. He said the only way Lewis isn’t going to hit is if the Giants sign Manny.
 
Last year the Giants wanted to mix in as many Giants as possible to see what they got. This year they want to be completive and hope the good players emerge and next season they wanted to try to win the division. Miller said that if the Giants did get Manny then all of a sudden they are the favorite to win the NL West this year. He does think Manny will end up with the Dodgers as well. Manny loves the LA lifestyle. Don’t worry Giants fans there is still hope until his signing with the Dodgers is official.
