Posey – Yes, he made a few mental fielding errors and had a poor AB to end the game on Sunday. But overall he looked like his old self. We’ll see how his body is holding up after a few weeks, but so far so good.
Melky and Pill – It looks like we are going to be getting the 2011 version of Melky Cabrera instead of the feared earlier editions. Brett Pill hit a PH HR in game 2. Hopefully he takes away AB’s from Huff instead of Belt in the near future (We all know he will be starting soon).
The Bullpen – 8.2 IP, 2 ER. Solid as ever.
Belt – He is pressing and struggling. He seems to be more aggressive at the plate (Suggested/demanded by Bochy and the Organization). This approach really isn’t working so far. I really hope they stick with him.
The Starting Pitching – Lincecum, Bumgarner and Cain all gave up two HR’s each. It wasn’t a pretty sight, but let’s wait another couple times around the rotation before getting too concerned.
Crawford/Theriot/Burriss – Combined they went 2-21 and Crawford made two brutal errors. Laugh all you want at Willie Bloomquist, but I would feel way more comfortable right now if we had him and Fontenot as the starting middle infielders.
Huff – Pilates aside, he looks like the same player we saw in 2011. He made real nice contact a few times and couldn’t even get the ball to the warning track. I hope Bochy and Sabean learned their lesson last season.
The viewing party will be taking place in our Mother’s basement this friday starting at 12 p.m.
First ten best friends to show up will receive a complimentary scanned copy of the Giants section from this years Baseball Prospectus.
Also, Mommy made a run to Costco last weekend so there should be enough Pizza Pockets and Capri Suns to go around for everyone!
Boy Genius @GiantsNirvana will be in attendance making balloon animals and might even be able to work his magic to turn a balloon into your favorite player (Brett Pill for me please) !
We will also be giving away World of Warcraft gold (or Reddit karma) to everyone in attendance for every good play that Brandon Belt makes in the game.
