I just checked the box score on mlb.com, it said pill, abreu and quiroz were on our bench????

8 games out of 162. Relax! The kid got sick and it hurt his start of the season. He will be OK and there are no better options anyway.

seriously. Belt lost 10-12 pounds when he got sick. let him get healthy and wait until he reaches at least 100 ABs before you all crucify him, like most of you did last yr.
Got a friend who's looking to listen to today's game through an app on her phone. I told her about the MLB At Bat app but it's not free. Are there any other options for her?

Anyone we can bring up as a starter? Timmy could be a perfect middle reliever but if he gets similar game like this one it should be best to put him in the pen just like in the playoffs.


My own little prediction last year when he started off so terrible was that by beginning of 2013 season he would be the Giants closer, considering his struggles at that time and the Wilson situation (injured, would be a FA). When they put Lincecum in the pen during postseason and he did so well, I thought my prediction might come true. But they're being stubborn on this and thinking he can still be an effective starter. Now I'm not so sure that closer would be the right role for him, but as you say, middle relief might be best spot for him. I wasn't sold on Romo as a closer, thought he was best-suited as a setup man, but can't argue with his results thus far.
It shouldn't have to be said, but seemingly every year people forget that......the baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint. We're 8 games into the new season people.

Romo is 5/5 saves and has allowed 0 runs... I'm pretty sure we are OK at closer.

Yeah, he's surprised me...translation: I was wrong about him.
And with him locking that down and no need to convert Lincecum to that role, I think that would set up Lincecum nicely for a move (fairly soon) to middle/long relief as he did in the playoffs. I know that raises the question of who will take his place in the rotation, but I gotta think there's an arm or two in their farm system that can do at least a little better than what Lincecum has done as a starter the past 1+ seasons.

For Belt we can only hope he will get better or at the minimum productive. Not going to get started on Timmy...

Pill didn't play in Fresno last night when they defeated Zack Wheeler. In other prospect news, Angel Villalona is 1 for 24 with 9 K's - that's = .042 for San Jose.
