My predictions from last year:"I think 87 wins is about right...and it could be enough to win the West. Wrong. 92 wins and they needed almost all of them! Who would have known that SD would have been that good?I really don't think that Timmy will get cy young #3...in fact, I hate to say this, but I think he will take a step back this year. I'm not saying he will be bad, but his whip will probably go back up to the 1.10-1.15 range. [ Right, Timmy slipped up and his ERA went back into the 1.3 range, yikes!Definitely not happy with bringing Bengie back...I think it will be bad for the clubhouse and I was really looking forward to getting to see Posey play. Now Posey will probably start the season in the minors [Right, Giants didnt take off until Posey came up and Bengie was jettisoned.Definitely not too happy with the moves that Sabean made in the offseason. Too many utility guys who don't get on base very well and don't play good defense. In regards to DeRosa, this was right. Sabean's offseason moves didn't help the team, but his in season acquisitions of Burrell, Ross, and Lopez surely did. Gotta give him credit for that, even though I still think he sucksHopefully, the Giants' young hitters will continue to develop and our pitching carries us to the playoffs. Posey developed into one of the best catchers in the game and our pitching came up strong down the stretch and carried us to our first World Series Championship in San Francisco!Last season was seriously the most amazing sports experience I've ever had. The fact that nobody expected the Giants to win made it even better. It's so much sweeter to root for the underdog and have them come through than to root for a team that is expected to win.
well put!i cant wait to call up bradon belt. this kid is tearing the cover off the ball. we have too many infielders on our roster. i have no idea where huff is going to play when we call up belt sometime this season.side note. i heard a bunch of giants fan pitched in and got an airplane to fly over dodger stadium opening night, with a banner reading, "San Francisco Giants: 2010 World Series Champions. Beat LA!"i cant wait to hear how loud the stupid dodger fans boo when the champs take the field. im tempted to buy a standing room ticket for the home opener against the cardinals..... i want to see them unveil our world series pennant and watch the players get their rings.
