….and that’s about all for your Giants news.

Hey, Niner fans, this guy wrote a good article on why SF is fucked with this Kaep situation:

I can’t see us doing a deal with the Rams but the rest of his case is surprisingly accurate in it’s doom and gloom.

Catch any new dumb ass Hunter Pence videos this morning? I did, will post later…..

    Noticed where MLB.com did a rating of farm systems~ the 10 best as they see it ~ and that the LaBumbos are rated #1. Giants did not even make the cut. Wondering whether they should revise their concept or at least add the correlation of which farm systems have contributed the most to their team’s on-field performance during the current decade.

    Also wondering about 4 in 7 might do to those rating systems ~ particularly if there are significant contributions from the likes of Williamson and Arroyo.

      The Dodgers’ rating will drop next season. Seager will be a regular MLBer this season.

    Mac Williamson with a big bomb. I’d like to see him really hit well this Spring. Giants playing guys I never heard of — the beauty of Spring Training. Now Beede on the mound — let’s see what this kid can do…

    Beede walked 3 straight, Boch had the hook. Good to get him outta there, not let the Dauber get down this early in Spring. Gear up for the next outing…

      Given the ump calls I’ve seen in the on-line ST feeds so far, I think it’s pretty hard to walk 3 in a row unless you’re really off. The zones are large and the hitters are swinging. Beede lost something. But I agree, it’s very early ST. If any team can get Beede right, it’s the Giants.

    FG started measuring homegrown talent on the 40s a couple years back and the Giants have always been high on the list. The current IF shows it. Oakland a’s have been last for a while. Beano treats minor league players like chips in a Saturday afternoon poker game at the country club. (Wait. Do country clubs ban gambling? I know next to nothing about CCs. I went to a couple of meetings at one and received a list of rules that banned all sorts of stuff. Eff em.) Anyway, I’d say the value of a farm system shows in the harvest, and the Giants have done very well since 2009.

    Week ago tonight we went to the SF Ballet to see “Swan Lake” in its classical glory. I’d never seen it live, so performed by a world class outfit was special. The younger Snarkkette and her best girlfriend who are currently studying ballet were awestruck by the artistry, the moves, the balance, the perfection. I asked them if the prima ballerina was good, very good, or ? They stared at me and both agreed she was “perfect” — amazed at how long she could stay en pointe in perfect balance, the spins, jumps and all those french-named moves. All dancers were superb athletes, no doubt, with incredible flexibility, range and fluidity. Even the second stringers and corps were all together and impressive. No wonder baseball players in the past have worked out with ballet dancers. Not to mention the live orchestra was awesome with the classic Tchaikovsky score. An evening well spent with a reminder how humans can achieve greatness when they put their all into an endeavor. I’ve no doubt Timmy and his nimble body and balance would have made him a great ballet dancer…

    Williamson making some noise early on this ST. Two huge bombs today.

    • snarkk said, on March 5, 2016 at 3:29 pm

      Yep, I’d love to have him push the Giants into a tough outfield decision at the end of Spring. I’d love a guy off the bench with major pop. Let’s see how he does in two weeks when the pitchers get winnowed down to major leaguers, and those guys are getting dialed in a little…

    An Arias sighting, trying to make the D-Backs squad.

    • snarkk said, on March 5, 2016 at 4:09 pm

      “Our” Arias? If he makes their 25, that would make me worry less about them…

      • zumiee said, on March 5, 2016 at 5:38 pm

        I saw him get a single.
        I also saw Culberson get a hit. He of the Marco Scutaro trade. The D-Backs didn’t have their A-squad going against the Dodgers today.

    Austin Peay just won its conference tourney, after being a #8 seed, and now heads for the NCAA tourney. IMO these conference tourneys are dumb, dumb. An entire season, you have a conference winner, and then this kind of thing happens. So the conference season winner in this conference, or another conference, has one less spot in the NCAA available to it to qualify because a team that was crap all season got into a 3 game hot streak. Ridiculous…

    • Macdog said, on March 5, 2016 at 8:36 pm

      I agree completely. It doesn’t make sense for the smaller conferences that only get one bid not to send their best teams, the ones that won the regular season, to the NCAAs. In this instance, the Ivy gets it right.

    I could see the Rams trading up with Tenn to get a QB like Goff. Fucking Wentz is now supposed to be the #1 though. He went from a mid 2nd rounder to #1 without throwing a pass.

    I don’t see Denver going all in on Osweiler either. He rode the baloney pony to finish the season. They could very well trade for Kaepernick. Kubiak would do well with a guy like Colin. Shit, he won with a noodle-armed Manning. Thing is, Kappy has no control where he gets traded. We could trade him to New Orleans to sit behind Brees.

    And he has 0 chance of getting cut.
