The first game of the season for the San Francisco Giants was yesterday. They lost 5-0. Unfortunately, I think the season opener will be indicative of the rest of the season for the Giants; not getting blown up, but getting beat, and not scoring much if at all. A 100 loss season? Damn I hope not, but with the way the N.L. West is looking, it’s entirely possible.
I’m certainly no baseball scout, but why aren’t the Giants starting some of the young prospects? There are few to be excited about, but still – how about these guys:
- Eugenio Velez
- Fred Lewis
- Rajai Davis
All of them are young, blazing fast, and have more upside or potential. And they can be put in for the following:
- Rich Aurilia
- Ray Durham
- Dave Roberts
It’s no secret the Giants are bad. Let’s clean house and start re-building. Management has said they’re taking a team in a new direction, so it’s time to put your money where your mouth is. And by that, I don’t mean dropping 128 million on Zito.
Oh, and I realize I haven’t really been posting about sports; there may be a few more sports and baseball-related posts in the future.
