A Place To Talk About Giants Baseball

Did Dutch Say Too Much?

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on May 12, 2019

“To be honest I have no idea what they’re doing. And I’m not talking about Boch and them, it’s the front office….I did a fake injury, so I’m not happy about that…”–Holland.

So, say goodbye to Derrick Holland. You can’t call out your boss like that and skate free. And that’s fine, he’s not part of any solution, he was, at best, not a bad dart throw from our past.

But this is good for Zaidi to hear. I like all the moves he makes because it’s the polar opposite of Sabean and Evans who literally did nothing once the season started. And as I said repeatedly before the season, last place was always GUARANTEED for this squad. Moves NEED to be made. But we’re still dealing with human beings here, and even worse baseball players, some of the worst creatures of habit roaming the earth.

So hopefully he’s learning as he goes. He can’t expect his players to celebrate the 32 catcher transactions he puts in each week…..

    I’m not as OK with Belt in leftfield as I was before. The last time out there he looked really SLOW. Like a snail out there.

      Probably due to ongoing issues with his knee. Considering that he’s the only real thread in the LU, Belt should play exclusively at 1b imo

    I’ve said it before and I’m sure others have as well, time to have Joey Bart learn another position. Why take the chance of an early career with that guy?
    Let him learn how to play the OF, just might be the best way for the Giants to develop an Outfielder in their system.

    Right. What bugs me about this is it’s not like outfield is some giant mystery. I’m no superstar ball player, but shagging flies isn’t insanely difficult. Practice enough, and you should be able to get it within a few months. And really what else do these guys do? Infield is much harder to master. At least to me.
