Re: CroixdeStick


March 18, 2007 - I finally made it to spring training!! woo hoo!!! Of course, it would be 90 degrees and wall to wall people in Scottsdale. The bleacher bums, which I was a part of, all moaned when they saw the misters turned on over the seats behind home [sign in to see URL] was threat of a revolt and major theft but everyone pretty much suffered/sweltered through it.

Game was against the Royals. Not too many names I knew except for Teahan and former Giant Reggie Sanders. Lowry got beat up a [sign in to see URL] missed his worst inning. Amazing players for the game:

Armando Benitez - he's looked sharp all spring and today he was looking strong and in command of his pitches. Mando Blownitez is not one of my favorites so for him to impress me like this, [sign in to see URL] there is still hope (for a trade!!...lol) emoticon

Mr. Happy goes 3 for [sign in to see URL]. Clutch hitting, going to opposite field, waiting on pitches, making some key infield [sign in to see URL] we finally see something happen here?? Someone pinch me when it happens.

Freddy Lewis and Jason Ellison - speed does win [sign in to see URL] beats out a throw to first and an errant throw bounces away and he makes a heads up move to take second. Gets to third and Jason hits a big ole bouncing ball to [sign in to see URL] goes wide as throw was rushed to beat Ellison to first, Freddy [sign in to see URL] win!

Saw a couple of good covers at first by Kline and [sign in to see URL] looked sharp.

And, although there were two outs at the time, Frandsen laid down a nice bunt to try to score a run and throw off the [sign in to see URL]'t quite work but lots of people were excited about the prospect of our team doing something exciting like a suicide [sign in to see URL] we haven't seen in a long, long time!!

 emoticon to the head to Durham, Linden and [sign in to see URL] on guys, we need those bats!

Next Giants game for me will be Wednesday down in Tucson to see the White [sign in to see URL] are next to the Giants dugout so I hope to have some pictures.
Unfortunately, I have to watch the Pod people for the next two [sign in to see URL] think I'll bring a book to read!

Hamels started toward the dugout after what he thought was a strike. Lincecum didn't get the call & buzzed ump Dana DeMuth w. a fastball that slammed off the backstop & then froze Hamels w. another 3rd strike. 4/28/10 Timmy the ump killer.

Re: CroixdeStick


Four games later, I survived spring training. Had an opportunity to see the Padres play the A's (and about 1/4 in attendance were in Giants gear), then the Padres vs. the Angels ([sign in to see URL] the Peoria field is one of the nicer venues). Went to Tucson to see the windiest game east of Candlestick when the Giants played the White [sign in to see URL] heartbreaker of a game with our bullpen taking a big hit and Richie pulling a groin muscle trying to avoid GITP (that would be ground into TRIPLE play!). Had the luxury of sitting two rows from the field and seeing a very antsy Tim Flannery coach third base. Scoop alert!!!....Flannery had a friend sitting in front of me and said that the regulars were faking pulled muscles to get out of playing and stated the our bullpen is in need of help (and commented that they had a better bullpen in San Diego than here).

Last game was against the [sign in to see URL] very soggy scene, which lasted 6 1/2 innings (the bottom of the 7th, Noah's ark came through)...Morris looked pretty good, [sign in to see URL], he looked like the Mando we all know and love. Flannery might be right...

Heading [sign in to see URL] ate a lot of ballpark [sign in to see URL] resumes tomorrow!!! Opening [sign in to see URL] I come!!!
