The San Francisco Giants Morning Commute is back with a new name this season. We’re going to call it the Giant Commute where we’ll post a quick run down of anything that happened you may have missed. It’s a perfect way to start your day when you don’t have a lot of time.
Chinwagging – San Francisco Giants spring training notes
Around the Foghorn Editor, Mark O’Neill gives a pretty good run down of how each SF Giants player has been performing in Spring Training so far. The Giants currently have a 3-7 record.
"Spring training games may be meaningless, but much is determined nonetheless"
True dat. We care when we’re winning. We don’t when we’re losing. But there is a lot at stake for a lot of these guys hoping for a roster shot.
Duane Kuiper was on Murph and Mac earlier this week and talked a bit about what he saw during Spring Training. We talked about it on the Podcast this week, but to sum it, up he said the Giants weren’t looking great so far, “not passing the eye test,” but that at this early point in Spring, he’s not overly concerned about it unless they don’t look any better in another week or so.
Mike Axisa gives us the latest in the Panda Gate. Short story: Pablo Sandoval said some not nice things about San Francisco. Aubrey Huff said some not nice things about Sandoval. Sandoval then say ‘Who is Aubrey Huff?’
The only thing I’ll say here, because I’m so over the Panda, is that Huff is the guy that helped the Giants win their first World Series in San Francisco. Saying things like, ‘where is he now?’ doesn’t make much sense given that Huff is 10 years older than Sandoval. Huff played until he was 36, and at the rate Pablo is looking coming in to Spring Training, he’ll be lucky if he’s still playing when he’s 36, too.
