2008 Season Previews: San Francisco Giants
Wednesday, February 13, 2008
Welcome to the 6th of 30 "2008 Team Previews", where I'm - you guessed it! - offering up a little preview of the 2008 season for each of the teams. Nothing super fancy, (I'm not writing books here munecas), just a few notes on what major moves the teams made over the winter and a thought or two on their upcoming season. I'm going in reverse order of 2007 standings, so next up is....

San Francisco Giants

2007 Record: .438 (71-91), Last place in NL West

2006 Record: .472 (76-85), 3rd place in NL East

Who’s Out: Barry Bonds (Cheater Cheater Pumpkin Eater), Pedro Feliz (3B), Ryan Klesko (1B)

Who’s In: Hitting Coach Carney Lansford, Aaron Rowand (OF)

Notes: Not since the deadball era has there been a team that seemed to care so little about offense. Apparently they are planning to rely on Rowand to hit for the entire team, or on new hitting coach Carnster to teach the rest of the boys how to swing their bats effectively. Unlike the O's and the Marlins, who are realistic about their situations and wise enough to forgo spending big bucks on a longshot in favor of rebuilding and focusing on the future, the Giants simply have not accepted the fact that they don't have a chance in the division for at least the next few years. Last year's signing of Barry Baked Ziti and the Rowand signing this year are evidence of that notion. This year would have been a perfect opportunity for the team to simmer down on the signings and stockpile prospects, and they missed the boat big time.

Next up: Cincinnati Reds

Granderson "shares the lessons that he learned growing up--the importance of family and choosing the right friends, the power of listening and staying positive, and most important, the value of being yourself."
