All’s Quiet in the Bay Area
Is there any buzz about the Giants and Cespedes out west?
Back here, I’d say the media vibe is he ain’t comin’ back…
Not only is there no buzz about this but I can’t recall there being a less buzzy start to an off season. There is NOTHING getting talked about, Giants related, in the Bay Area media. I’m not actually sure what the media even does out here. The Niners are so bad the radio talk show guys seem to be actively avoiding discussing them. The Raiders get a little buzz but for a team that just took over the AFC lead, you’d think there would be more. The Dubs get most of the airtime on KNBR these days.
I will be shocked if we get Cespedes. Can’t see us being anything more than a bargaining chip for him to get a little more money somewhere else…..
#FreeStix! RPOTD. Not a very old one or a very long one but this is a “Stix” post from beginning to end:
Z: Got my little 97 GrandAm through some half melted snow on my long driveway with the help of some wood ashes for added traction and drove to Brrrrmidji (40 miles one way) to catch a shower and do some grocery shopping. At one of the stores i checked out all the baseball mags and noted that Sporting News piece projecting SF at 97 wins in an Even year. Mucho Kewl.
Also the only other mag which did projections and predictions noted that the Giants would win the NLW. May be a bit hard to slip beneath the radar after all that, but the respect is long overdue and much welcomed.
