2012 San Francisco Giants Season thread
Post comments all season long in this thread...
I'll go first.
Looks like the team is going to play a LOT more smallball this season, and looking at the speed at the top of the lineup, that looks to be a very good idea. The question is, can Pagan, Cabrera, Blanco get on enough so the team can actually play smallball?
#1 By the ASG Blanco will be the starting CF. if not before
#2 Buster will be fine, but I don't expect him to hit like 2010 quite yet.
#3 Freddy Sanchez plays little if any, role on this team
#4 Belt will play 120 games, mostly in the OF. He will show flashes of greatness at the bat, but will struggle with consistency
#5 By the ASG, the team will buy out Zito's contract and DFA him
#6 MadBum has an outstanding season, winning at least 15 games if not 18-20
#7 Panda goes .320/25/100, makes the ASG and is the team MVP
#8 Gary Brown struggles in Richmond for a couple of months, then finds his swing and ends the year in Fresno. Joe Panik continues to hit well, but struggles on defense. Plays the whole year in SJ. Tommy Joseph kills the ball in Richmond and moves up to Fresno. Heath Hembree strikes out the league in Fresno and ends up replacing Romo on the Giants roster, after Romo's arm goes dead.
That's all the Tarot Cards told me....what say you?
