Random thoughts for 2012 Giants


Other than attaining mediocre in 2010, since 2005 they have been hard to take offensively. Asking Buster and Pablo to carry the load to 100 more runs is not reasonable. Zito back in the rotation? Lincecum or Cain sneezes and/or Vogelsong slips back even a bit. Its a breakeven season at best, give or take.

Off-season signings of position players for several years have been pedestrian and marginally effective. Certainly not deserving of blind faith. A fan's hope is what they're worth. Thats not all bad. I've been there.

But I have no expectations other than to expect a repetition of the Ground Hog's day effect of Zito disappointing every 5-6 days or so mixed in with a curiosity of the over/under on games in which 3 runs or less are scored. Based on 98 last year, they could go over 100.

If the Zeets had any sense of wanting a legacy for himself, he would be embarrassed and just walk away after 4 consecutive years of public displays of career incontinence. Apparently he's too self-absorbed to be mortified.

I can see one, two or even three seasons if there was hope of improvement. But this is five years of punitive roster composition that the Giants are shoving up the fans' ass.

The 2010 WS is in the bank. Not much looking forward to other than Cain and Lincecum going out of their gourds one more season with no run-support. I've seen that act 4 out of the past 5 years. No thanks.

Niners are going one way, the Giants are going the other. Big switch in just a few years. Niners have 8 All-Pros, an outstanding head coach who draws comparisons to Bill Walsh. The Giants have Bochy and Sabean who draw comparisons to Lou Costello and Groucho Marx. Even Alex Smith has turned things around.
