  • Posted Outside the Box to El Lefty Malo
    When Brian Sabean first took over as GM of the Giants, one of his first moves was to trade fan favorite Matt Williams.  The move took some stones to pull off but turned out to be one of the biggest...
  • Posted Your 2014 SF Giants!! to El Lefty Malo
    I need some help here guys, there are going to be some tough decisions eventually by 2014 if not sooner and it is time to see where your loyalties lie!!  I figure that by 2014 the payroll is going to...
  • Commented on SF 15, MIL .... Hey, Stop Right There, You Think I'm an Idiot or Something?
    You may be right about the rumors starting in Milwaukee and not here in SF.  You have to admit though that this trade scenario does sound like something Sabes would go for.  Also, what the Indians were asking for last...
  • Commented on SF 15, MIL .... Hey, Stop Right There, You Think I'm an Idiot or Something?
    I don't get the whole Corey Hart obsession Sabean apparently has.  Is he that much of an upgrade over the outfielders we already have and is he the difference maker that is going to get us to the playoffs?He isn't...
  • Posted buyers or sellers to El Lefty Malo
    The trade rumors have started to pick up now that we have less then a month before the deadline.  The question every Giants fan should be asking themselves is whether we should be buyers or sellers.  I hear rumors of...
  • Commented on SF 3, HOU 1: Two Gems Stood Out
    So here is the deal Campanari, we all get caught up in stats and everyone uses them to justify their opinions on particular players.  Based only on his small sample size of stats I would agree with you that he...
  • Commented on SF 3, HOU 1: Two Gems Stood Out
    You are joking right?  Do you ever watch the games or just fall in love with small sample sizes of stats?  Renteria is horrible defensively and one of the softer hitters you will ever see.  At 9 million a year...
  • Commented on SF 3, HOU 1: Two Gems Stood Out
    Sabes may have finally lucked into a few good moves, I will give him that but in all fairness it doesn't make up for the fact that he is paying a combined 26 million or so for Rowand, Molina, and...
  • Commented on Once Again the Giants Have a Prospect Problem
    Maybe I am just overly negative towards Sabes but this is more of an opportunity to me then a problem but I don't think he has the brains to put together a deal to bridge the gap.  If I were...
  • Commented on SF 10, BAL 2: Indeed
    Here is a complaint for you regarding your loverboy Franchez, 0 homeruns and 0 stolen bases.  You are loving him now that he has the hot bat but unless he hits like this for the rest of the year, get...
  • Commented on SF 6, OAK 2: Huff of the Week
    It wouldn't be so frustrating if Sabes was a little easier to like.  It wouldn't take much, maybe throw us the fans a bone and let us know what you are thinking instead of the way he typically handles things...
  • Commented on SF 6, OAK 2: Huff of the Week
    I don't know about giving Sabes or Bochy too much credit for recent moves and success, everyone and their mothers have been begging them to bring up Posey, get a right handed bat, and less playing time for Rowand and...
  • Commented on SF 6, CIN 5: Changing of the Guard
    I laughed too when Kruk and Kuip praised Rowand for maintaining his defense at such a ehem "high level" through his offensive struggles.  He is also a great clubhouse guy and a gritty veteran...Bengie wasn't missed at all last night,...
  • Commented on The First Two Months
    Rowand isn't identifying breaking balls down in the zone and more then ever it seems like he is up there guessing and obviously guessing wrong.  Bengie has a better eye then Rowand but his bat speed is way down compared...
  • Commented on Q&A With Dan Fost of "Giants Past and Present"
    DF: I know a lot of fans wish the Giants had started rebuilding sooner. And certainly even more of us wish they had made a deeper commitment to rebuilding, rather than being stuck with older, over-priced, under-performers like Rowand, Renteria...
  • Commented on SF 4, WASH 2: A Cool Drink of Water
    Looking at the Giants purely from a business standpoint I would think bowtie has to be itching to make some moves.  I would love to see some attendance figures and tv ratings because lately I haven't even been able to...
  • Commented on I Have a Movie Idea
    Here is a title for your movie Lefty:  Don't tell mom the Giants offense is dead!There is no sugar coating this disgrace for an offense 99, Sabean has had 5 years to find a bat and replace the offense that...
  • Commented on I Have a Movie Idea
    There has to be some accountability for this team continuously sucking year after year.  Everyone has heard it before but the definition for insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and hoping for a different result.  Bowtie...
  • Commented on Giants' Fifth Starter: Prize at the Bottom
    Much like Ishikawa last year, I would suggest leaving Welle at home instead of taking him with you on road trips.  He clearly isn't going to help you on the road and he is fairly affective at home so do...
  • Commented on AZ 8, SF 7: Even With LaRussa in Charge, Giants Can't Outslug Snakes
    I can't argue with that.  I do think though that there has to be some accountability if this continues because last year the excuse was that expectations were so low that our record last year exceeded them and this year...
  • Commented on AZ 8, SF 7: Even With LaRussa in Charge, Giants Can't Outslug Snakes
    How are the Giants going to win their division when they can't beat anyone in it?  At first we thought it was just San Diego that was giving us problems but I don't see any difference against Arizona and anyone...
  • Commented on If Freddy is Ready, Will Downs Go Down?
    You and Sabean must share a brain obsessive.  It is that kind of thinking that has gotten this team guys like Rowand, Renteria, and your buddy Sanchez.  Those are just the current players who have "long career batting lines in...
  • Commented on If Freddy is Ready, Will Downs Go Down?
    6 million a year for Freddy Sanchez or league minimum for Downs?  12 million for Rowand or league minimum for Torres or Lewis, or Rajai?  10 million for Renteria or 1 million for Uribe?See a trend here?  This is the Giants...
  • Commented on Could the Fish be ready to unload Hanley?
    If he were a wide receiver in the NFL it would be no big deal, the Patriots would trade a 5th round pick for him and he would go on to help them win the super bowl!  Funny how different...
  • Commented on Sabean's Boners -- Let's Keep Track!
    I suggest you write a book not a blog on all of Sabeans blunders.  You could do chapters in alphabetical order like chapter one - A for Aaron rowand, Chapter 26 - Z for Zito, etc....
  • Posted Could the Fish be ready to unload Hanley? to El Lefty Malo
    I just watched the clip of Hanley dogging it after he kicked a bloop that allowed the runner to make it to third on the play.  He was then removed from the game mid-inning and may be benched for longer...
  • Commented on SD 3, SF 1: Same Old Same Old
    http://www.rotoauthority.com/2010/05/fastball-velocity-gainers-and-losers.htmlVery interesting stuff, this lists pitchers who have gained or lost velocity this year and unless you have had your head up your ass this season you probably noticed a trend among Giant pitchers this year, they are all throwing...
  • Commented on SD 3, SF 1: Same Old Same Old
    Thank you Lefty for addressing the Rowand situation.  I don't know if there is a spot in the lineup where you could hide his ineptitudes, I would prefer to see him in the 7th hole though.  Nate might be the...
  • Commented on SD 1, SF 0: Latos Intolerance
    The Padres are playing the way the Giants wish they could.  Both teams are built around pitching and both teams know they arent going to hit a bunch of homers but the difference is that the Padres are playing small...
  • Commented on Let Us Cheer Our Spirits with Schierholtz
    I have been looking all over for those christian laboutin shoes, I can die in peace now that I have found out how to acquire them! ...
