The day has arrived. It will be the last day of Giants baseball until 2014. I’m sad.

Here are lineups for today’s final game. They’re not starting Angel Pagan.
Guillermo Moscoso (2-2, 4.21) will start for the Giants today and most are speculating Barry Zito will come into the game out of the pen at some point today for his encore. I’m going to wear my Zito shirt to the game for one last time. If the Giants win today, they will be third in the National League West with the same record as the Padres. The Giants have more series wins against the Padres which will put them ahead with the same record. Hunter Pence is locked up. He’s starting today which means he has started and played in every game this year. He just wanted to stay a Giant and looks like he made sure of that with his contract.
Pence told me full no-trade was important and Giants could “dice it up however they wanted.” He’ll get $16M next year, $18.5M per in next 4. — Andrew Baggarly (@CSNBaggs) September 29, 2013
We need to re-sign Javier Lopez. He wants to stay.
No talks yet for JLopez but he’d love to re-sign. “We’ll keep things pretty fluid w/the Giants. This is where I’d like to continue to play.” — Andrew Baggarly (@CSNBaggs) September 29, 2013
Today could be the last time we see Timmy in the dugout as a Giant.
Lincecum called a new contract “not a pressing thing for me.” Left every impression he plans to see what’s out there.
