SF Giants Rumors: Scoring Isn’t A Problem, Young vs. Old, Today’s Lineup

It’s no secret that the San Francisco Giants pitching is no where close to where it should be. All I can say is these guys are way to good, so they will get this turned around soon.
The offense is what really has a lot of Giants fans excited right now. We know the pitchers are going to get back in their groove, and the wins will start to pile up with the way the G-Men are putting up runs.

They’re averaging 5.80 runs per game  through the first 5 games of this young season. That’s the most in the National League and 2nd in the Majors to the Tigers (6.60).

Last Game Of The Road Trip

Today’s road trip finale has the young Madison Bumgarner (22) up against the not so young Jamie Moyer (49). Moyer has been pitching in the majors longer than Bumgarner has been on the planet earth. Moyer’s major league debut was 3 years prior to Bumgarner being born.

Today’s Lineup

Angel Pagan CF
Melky Cabrera LF
Pablo Sandoval 3B
Buster Posey C
Brett Pill 1B
Nate Schierholtz RF
Ryan Theriot 2B
Brandon Crawford SS
Madison Bumgarner P

    It was GREAT to see Nate out there yesterday! I truly believe that if he had been playing more often, he would have hit that cut-off man. And he had other near-miss plays. not to mention a HR! Go NATE !!

    I am still looking for an explanation why Thierot was kept and Fontenot not kept. Any ideas here?

    And Steven — these guys are way “too” good. It looks to me like the entire team just was not truly ready.

  • Anthony says:

    Slumps happen early; middle or late the thing is they hit every team at different times of the year.

    Right now it’s just a pitching slump. They’ll get out of it.
