Found March 07, 2012 on The Dodgerhater:
When your fellow Giants fans ask you, 'Are you excited for the season??!!', your automatic response is 'Yeah! Can't wait!'.Mine is the same. Of course I can't wait. It's the Giants, it's BASEBALL for God's sake. How could one not be excited? I mean, you'd have to be some kind of Communist foreigner not to be excited about the 2012 season. Beyond that initial excitement for Giants baseball and my upcoming fantasy drafts, I feel very uneasy.I feel uneasy about the lineup again. I feel uneasy about management's willingness to do what needs to be done about our lack of offense.I feel uneasy about the Tim Lincecum situation. I feel uneasy about the Matt Cain situation.I just don't know what 2012 will bring, and it's beyond "anything can happen, it's a new year" sort of jitters.For the first time in a few years, I'm not feeling confident. I've always tried to not be a negative fan, but for some reason, I can't s...

With a Grain of Salt: Reacting to Spring Training, Part 1

On Monday I got to watch my first Spring Training game, between the Giants and the Brewers. I only caught the game partway through, and then stopped to watch a movie about someone pretending to be Shakespeare, or pretending not to be Shakespeare, or something. There was an earl, who was secretly the son of another guy, who may or may not have secretly been the son of someone else...

Territorial Whining

This week’s squabbling between the A’s and Giants just led to one realization: I’m tired of this crap.  Just make a decision.  I don’t even care anymore. This is just getting ridiculous.  The Giants are touchy about their finances for the future, which has to be killing signing Matt Cain longterm.  The A’s are in a holding pattern for life, especially for what fans...
