Criticism of this team?


Granted, I will be the first to admit I am not the most positive thinker when it comes to the Giants performance since 2004. I believe managment deserves all the criticism that comes their way. I've been pretty outspoken about how bad I think they are going to be this year. I've been a Giants fan for 28 years (I can remember probably 23... pretty much from 5-6 years old on. I went through the early 90's and of course 96 when they were awful.... I listened to, went to, or watched the majority of the games during that period. I think this year will be worse than any of those. I don't view that as being a downer, just being realistic. Some on here may say that makes people like me bad fans, but I disagree. I'll stoill watch or listen, and hope they win some games. Those of you that like to look on the positive side, you are certainly entitled to go that way. I guess my question to you guys is, does constantly criticising this team, make somebody a bad fan per say?

Criticism is definitely warranted, as long as its rational and thought out.

Kneejerk pessimism is as bad as kneejerk optimism. What the heck is a kneejerk anyway?

A "knee jerk" response is an "automatic" response. (Think of the doctor hitting your knee with that little rubber thing; your knee jerks and you leg kicks - no matter what : it's "automatic".)

Re: …


I won't blame the players as a group for the overall outcome of this coming season, because the blame for that rests entirely on Sabean and Magowan's shoulders.

But when Zito gives up 5 runs in an inning and a third on opening day to THE BUMS, and Ray Ray goes 1-26 the first week --- then yes, I will criticize certain individual players.

That being said, I will try my best to be patient with the kids.

I wanted a full rebuild, and we are getting a partial one (at best)-- so I will also be on Bochy's case if he doesn't play the kids.

Not that anyone cares what I think.

Re: …


it's a rebuild [sign in to see URL] I ask is two things:

1) please don't be an embarrassment to the rest of the league (aka 1962 Mets)

2) please be competitive enough to kick some Dodger ass this season as that is all we really have to live for... emoticon
