I read this story this morning and was as astonished that i hadn’t heard of it as much as I was with the details of the story. This is incredible.

    There appears to have been more to the Giants role in the physical resurrection of Gustavo Cabrera’s hand than the usual suspect ~ protecting an investment. There was a lot of caring involved. Good karma.

    A great piece, Flav, thanks for posting it. Here’s hoping that Gustavo can make it all the way back because as a physical specimen he looks pretty impressive. His hands are as big as a first baseman’s mitt. Popeye forearms. A young, slugging 5 tool LF would be a great addition to the Giants roster.

    And Andrew Baggarly continues to be an outstanding baseball writer.

    Kudos to our medical staff.

    Heard interviews yesterday with both Trevor Brown and Grant Green. Both sounded intelligent and guys you could easily root for.

    Warriors are 21 pt favs tonight vs pathetic 76ers. Not sure I’ve ever seen an NBA bball spread that large. Golden State was favored by 17 vs the Lakers last month….and lost by 17.

      Sixers barely lost to Blazers last night. If I bet, I’d take the under…

      Anybody have an idea as to why media and random so-called experts are ragging on the Dubs as not being that good, or at least not as good as they appear? Some are putting the Spurs ahead in “power ranking”, though obviously their record is not as good, and the Dubs cleaned them when the Spurs were at Oracle. Seriously, I don’t get it. This team is 65-7, that is crazy. Ridiculous. It’s no accident, yet people go out of the way to somehow find fault with this team. If the Knicks did this, or Lakers, the adulation and genuflection would be incredible. The Dubs do it? Nah, must be a mirage…

    Good story on this kid. Looks like he has an arm, bit of a loopy swing. It would be a great story if he makes it to the bigs in a few years, but that’s a crapshoot. Anyway, if he doesn’t, he’s got use of his hand the rest of the his life…

    Jim Harrison died. Amazing writer. You may remember the cure for the common cold that I quoted from his first novel, Wolf. The treatment involved a fresh grapefruit juice and lukewarm water cleanse, rest in a dark room, followed by a 2-3 pound porterhouse steak cooked rare and eaten with bare hands, no salt, and a long soak in a hot tub of water while drinking a full quart of the best bourbon you can afford. Then long sleep.

    • snarkk said, on March 27, 2016 at 12:30 pm

      Add an afternoon with Daisy the barmaid and I think I’ll try to catch a huge cold ASAP…

      • xoot said, on March 27, 2016 at 12:50 pm

        I think that fantasy follows after you awaken revived from the cure.

    • wilcojoe said, on March 27, 2016 at 4:35 pm

      Sounds like my “cure” for a hangover.

      • xoot said, on March 27, 2016 at 6:30 pm

        I don’t know where that hair of the dog fantasy falls.

    Blue Jays’ hurler gets hit in back of the head with a thrown ball, the team takes him outta the game forthwith. Giants’ Cueto gets clobbered by a batted ball in the forehead, he stays in for 3 frames. Hmmm…

    An article I read recently was a reminder of how hard it is for the average minor leaguer to get to the majors. It mentioned that about 1300 players were drafted before Piazza, and about 1100 of them never played an inning of major league ball.
    Hopefully Gustavo makes it to the bigs. He’s got awesome determination.

  10. Flavor said, on March 27, 2016 at 2:08 pm

    Ishikawa just cleared the bases with a triple. Lol.

    • zumiee said, on March 27, 2016 at 2:30 pm

      MLB is a small freakin’ world. 🙂

  11. Flavor said, on March 27, 2016 at 2:12 pm

    Mac Williamson just missed catching his 2nd ball of the inning.

    • Flavor said, on March 27, 2016 at 2:13 pm

      Peavy wants to murder him lol

  12. zumiee said, on March 27, 2016 at 2:14 pm

    Dodger game is on the MLB Network. Maeda looks good, but the challenge for him will be the grind of a full season.

  13. zumiee said, on March 27, 2016 at 2:35 pm

    I wonder how long Peavy lasts in the rotation this season. He looks like a guy who doesn’t have a lot left in the tank.

    • Flavor said, on March 27, 2016 at 3:34 pm

      last start was good and this one would have been much better had Williamson caught either or both of the 2 catchable balls hit to him

  14. alleykat69 said, on March 27, 2016 at 4:17 pm

    And that’s why Mac starts the season in AAA.But then again his power with this latest bomb is always intiguing!

  15. Flavor said, on March 27, 2016 at 4:42 pm

    I don’t have a problem with a guy with a big bat and suspect D. But I want that guy playing every day. Take him out in the 7th or 8th inning to avoid a little of his defense. In order for the power to pay off it’s gotta be across playing an entire season. Doesn’t do much good to have the guy play sporadically, you don’t get the true power unless it’s a full season of at bats.

  16. wilcojoe said, on March 27, 2016 at 4:44 pm

    Mac is reminding me of Jesus Guzman. Rakes during spring training and in the minors but he’s so bad defensively, you can’t keep him on the roster.

    • Flavor said, on March 27, 2016 at 6:21 pm

      If he was hitting 30+ bombs a year, you’d find a spot for him

  17. xoot said, on March 27, 2016 at 5:16 pm

    Peavey’s not quite ready to go his usual five but he’s close. I’m afraid we’ll see Ehire in the OF before we’ll see ham handed Mac out there.

    How about Syracuse? Nice to get a late round upset.

  18. Macdog said, on March 27, 2016 at 5:38 pm

    Looks like Parker and Williamson to start the year in the minors.

    • Flavor said, on March 27, 2016 at 6:19 pm

      good. Unless they are going to play every day up here, that’s where I want them,

  19. Bozo said, on March 27, 2016 at 5:46 pm

    Coaching vs. a team you know you are a lot better than was never enjoyable to me because I was impatient to blow them out. Philly is putting some points on the board but Warriors are on pace for about 150 tonight.

    as many as they have given up I doubt Kerr is too happy about it though they are creating good shots for everyone.

  22. zumiee said, on March 27, 2016 at 7:40 pm

    The way the rotation is set up, Peavy will start against the Dodgers in the home-opener. If he can give us 5 innings/3 ERs, I’ll take it. I like our chances against the Dodger #4 guy.
