Opening Weekend Sucked!
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.
