I like the way the San Francisco Giants are shaping up for the 2007 season?
It's going to be interesting to see what Bruce Bochy brings to the table. One of the main areas I'm really interested in watching is how they do with runners on base. The Giants have very little difficulty getting guys on base but they were routinely leaving 7-8-9 or more men on base through the last couple seasons. I think the pitching staff is shaping up fantastically. I think the Giants gained much more with Zito than they lost with Schmidt and the starting rotation (at least 1-4 look pretty solid). Having Correia and Hennessey as anchors for the bullpen is solid and I think Worrell could do well as closer or set-up man. The Giants have had a very solid defensive team for two years running and I'm glad they didn't mess with that - especially the infield. I'm happy to see Aurilia back and I think he can do well at first base. Hopefully Barry will return to form and be worth that 16M. And Klesko might prove to be a great pick-up especially playing for his old coach. Go Giants!

I totally agree with you. And now with Ortiz in the mix it should be interesting. He hasn't had much luck when he left us. I hope he gets back to 2002 form.

Bochy is definitely a great manager, I like that move a lot. They got some championship caliber role players added to the mix too. (Klesko, Molina, Roberts) I like their chances of making the palyoffs. They for sure better do it this year or next though, because their position players ain't getting any younger!

Zito is the only worthy player at this point. I agree the new management might create a buzz this year but the only buzz you should be hearing about the Giants is when Barry somehow breaks the HR record with a huge asterisk next to the number.

They are a .500 ball club no matter how you look at it. Their biggest mistake and the worst off season signing of any team was the signing of Bonds. The Giants probably would be a contending team if they would have used the money that Bonds is getting for other players. In addition if every Giant fan is a Bonds fan... More
