Please.

Isn't that the same line from last year? If I gambled, I would definitely take the over. 3 out of the last 4 years we've surpassed that win total. The season we didn't? When Buster Posey practically missed the entire season in 2011.


I don't think that's a horrible projection, but you'd think we get a little more respect after winning two out of the last three World Series titles.


With that said though, where can I find the rest of the teams Vegas line? I'd like to see where we're ranked alongside the rest of the teams in the league before I get a little upset about how many wins Vegas projects for us.
anyone know when the design for the championship ring comes out?

I am not one who normally puts much stock into Spring Training statistics. But Timmy's 10.97 ERA and 2.25 WHIP lead me to believe the Cy Young days are long gone.

Timmy is done.
Hopefully he starts the season off decent so we can trade him.

Please.

Very few of the national media I've seen this year believe the Giants will even win the west. They've never been believers, so it doesn't bother me. The vegas folks are generally pretty good at what they do, because the lines they set mean big money for the casinos. And the people who make their livings off of gambling (the casinos) don't usually hire no dummys to set their lines.

I don't see anything wrong with the over/under at 87 1/2. It seems reasonable to me, and it's just a starting point for a bet.
We're similar to the NY Football Giants the last several years it seems. No one thinks we/they are awesome, just decent to above average, yet stepping up and winning multiple Championships in a couple years.

f**k the NY Giants.
Noonan making his case today with three hits and Belt with his 8th HR, another bomb to right field. Lopez however looked AWFUL in relief but Hembree, Romo and Gaudin were good. Garce's boy Peguero also had a 2-run homer.
