Exceeding low expectations

I'm pleased with Brian Bocock.

Yes,  he is a graduate of the Ruben Rivera school for Runners Who Can't Run Good and Can't Do Other Stuff Good Too. But the D has been exceptional in the regular season, so far. He looks good turning the Duece, hasn't made any terrible throws.

The best part has been the offense.I know this has a lot to do with my expectations of him, and probably a lot to do with him hitting eighth as well. But,he has an Approach! 6 walks! That's an awful lot for a Giant.  And does he pay royalties to Lansford for that opposite field nubber based  hitting style? Love it.

Of course, it's only been a week, and I'm sure the scouting departments aren't knocking themselves out trying to come up with ways to get Brian Bocock out (especially since the best way so far is let him get on - he'll do the work from there).

This is the kind of season we're looking at. I'm just happy that one part of the team hasn't been as bad as I expected.
