Nostalgia, baby!

For those of you sick of the nostalgic goodbyes that have been a staple of the past few seasons with Matt Cain, Hunter Pence, and Bruce Bochy, I have got some bad news for you.

The 2020 season just so happens to be the 10 year anniversary of the 2010 title run that resulted in the first championship in San Francisco Giants history, so empty your glasses and make room for another nostalgia fest.

Some may roll their eyes at it, but I for one cannot wait for the NBC Sports Bay Area broadcast to cue up a nice “On this day 10 years ago” memory from 2010. It will remind us that there was a time when the Giants were actually good and give us some hope that maybe, just maybe, they will be good again some day.

There are only two guys on the roster left over from the 2010 run, Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval, but they will certainly celebrate all of the other heroes from that year as well.

It would be great to see guys like Freddy Sanchez sit down with Kruk and Kuip for an inning or two to drum up some memories from his contributions to the team. Does anybody else wonder how Mike Fontenot is doing these days?

Some fans may be dreading San Francisco Giants Nostalgia Fest 2020, but I cannot wait to revel in it like a pig in mud.
