2013 San Francisco Giants Thread

SWEEP SWEEP SWEEP
Love this team

I looked through the supposedly top 20 Giants prospects according to the web site, although I don't agree with the ranking but it appears 11 of the 20 are worth keeping tabs on 9 who are pitchers. However, It appears there are only two position players who could become decent every day role players one second baseman and one catcher

You can click the player on the scroll bar to see how each player is performing

Worth keeping tabs on

1 Kyle Crick San Jose currently on the DL

4 Joe Panik Richmond (has potential to be an average every day second basemen starting in 2015)

7 Martin Agosta Augusta

10 Edwin Escobar San Jose

11 Clayton Blackburn San Jose

15 Joan Gregorio Augusta

18 Alberta Mejia San Jose

19 Ty Blach San Jose

Jury out

On big league roster

Giants are now 11-4 against the Dodgers since that sweep in LA caused them to trade for Gonzalez. And 2 of those 4 losses came in the final series of last year when we were resting up for the playoffs.

They can keep spending money and depleting the farm system, but were just going to keep winning. We play as a team, they play as a bunch of individuals.
lol



Reminded me of:

Guess who hit HRs for the Blue Jays today? Melky Cabrera and.....Mark DeRosa, lol....
It was pretty cool that espn had guy in a kayak in McCovey Cove handing out free hotdogs.

It's funny, yesterday I benched him on my fantasy team for the first time this season because he's sucked. And then he goes 3/4 with a HR. Didn't matter for the outcome in my matchup though.

Way too early in the season to label him a bust. He had a slow start last year too and once he got acclimated he had a pretty good year for himself.
