San Francisco Giants Link Dump, 3/25

You could say the Giants are...dropping the ball! It's wordplay, people. Very clever.

I am going, I am going, where streams of link dumps are flowing

Six days until the Giants play real baseball games again! I can't wait. Also, I am also terrified that the positive stats from spring training are all flukes and the negative ones should all be taken extremely seriously. So, you know, standard issue panic.

Too many unknowns to crush either side in Sandoval negotiations
BASG talks about Pablo Sandoval, and gives a thoroughly reasonable take, which is absolutely no fun whatsoever. How am I supposed to call the Giants front office idiots who have no idea what they're doing and are intentionally running the franchise into the ground so they can move it to Montreal now? I mean, I will, but my heart won't be in it.

Report from Arizona: SJ Giants Spring Training Update
Joe Ritzo reports on yesterday's minor league game between the Giants' and Cubs' High-A affiliates. Having watched a similar game on Sunday, I can assure you it's hard to keep track of everyone. He must have done some actual reporting or something.

Inside the Clubhouse: Our Boys are Back
One day in July you will be watching TV without really paying attention, and this will be on, and it will take you 20 minutes, but eventually you will realize, "Hey, I watched this in March. Without commercials!"

Anyway, between the cliches (and they are as plentiful as sweat on Tyler Walker's face), there's a lot of good footage of Bochy joking around with some of the players, Hunter Pence doing Hunter Pence things, and the video of the Brandons playing Madden. Which one leaves in a hilarious and awkward huff? You'll have to watch to find out!

Electric Giants Car
It's more of a golf cart, but still, it's the thought that counts.
