Excited for baseball but less than enthused for this season.

I have a feeling watching this pitching staff will be like watch Daisuke pitch every day...pure torture.

I think the pitching will be ok...not great but good enough....as long as the bats produce the way they should that is.

It certainly will not be like last year where the pitching was good (early in the season) but they scored no runs (if they are not scoring runs with this lineup, they are in trouble).

We are taking the worlds dumbest risk by relying on the bats to carry us.

When they told him he was moving to the outfield, he hit the weight room. They said he is around 225/230.

I think I'm like most. Super excited for the offense, super nervous about the pitching. Just glad that baseball is starting again. I'm curious to see how they handle the backlog in the OF (maybe a big trade somewhere down the road). Can't wait to see how Betts/Xander come out of the gate this year. Looking for a MONSTER comeback year for Pedroia. Should be a lot of fun!

I think this for the outfield:

Rusney: Starts in AAA this year.

Hanley In left, Mookie In Center and Victorino in right

As a Giants fan, no surprise, the beat reporters already said last spring training that he was insulted at not getting a deal and there was pretty much a 0% he'd come back....so, he was probably grumbling well before this..lol. Giants were wanting to see a consistent season out of him probably. As for the people he misses, kind of rude for him to say only two people when I'm sure many of his teammates supported him...of course Posey and some others did call him out once for getting fat..he probably felt like a kid in SF coming up thru the system and being there so long, now wants to try to be a man elsewhere.
