Poor Giants fans, 50+ years without a WS title has turned them against one another.
hey, I already know that we haven't won a World Series since 1954. You don't need to remind me, evil Dodgers fan. :club:

I'm so sorry for having faith in my fav team and talking them up BEFORE the regular season starts. Obv i dont think they have a realistic chance to win it all, but i would like to think that if everything 'clicked' for some reason then we would have a shot. Maybe i am just delusional, but I dont care. To clear something up, I don't think Sabean is the greatest thing since sliced bread, I just was defending some of his veteran signings while bonds was around. P.S. eff you. since when is talking up your team being "dumb" and not just being a "fan". You sir are jaded.
I'm glad you have faith in the Giants. Don't get your hopes too high though. :)And I'm still a Giants fan, always have and always will. And I'm far from jaded. This lineup is like the other Giants teams of the past six years. With the huge free agent signings Renteria and Johnson (Sebean said that, not me), we still don't stand a chance. And the great teams of the 90s you referred to. Did you mean the 1993 Giants who won 103 games and missed the playoffs by one game because Dusty decided to keep our best pitcher for the one game playoff? Or the 1997 Giants who looked great and then got swept by the Marlins. Or how about the 1998 Giants? Losing in the one game playoffs to the Cubs. They had some great teams, but nothing special besides the 93 Giants. Sebean is horrible and needs to be gone asap.

"Madison Bumgarner, at 19 the Giants' top pitching prospect, just struck out Manny Ramirez on three pitches. Ramirez hit the first two foul then swung ahead of some kind of offspeed pitch, maybe a changeup.UPDATE: After coming out of the game, Ramirez praised Bumgarner, saying, "He's great. He's nasty. Nineteen? Wow. That's unbelievable. He's great. Good fastball, good curveball and sneaky. He throws hard."'Link to articleCan't wait for this guy to make the big leagues...maybe a September callup?Posted Image

Bumbgarner will be super sick. I want the Giants to give him as much time as he needs. Or call him up and he wins the Cy Young in his first full season like Timmy L. :club:

haha me either....but I am glad they got off to a good start. I think the reason I am so excited about this season is that its the first time in a few seasons that they have a legitimate chance to compete for the division title. 2009 here we come! :club:

Your definition of this word differs from mine I think. Maybe I'll be surprised by them though, we should know by the end of May or so.

Only two more tables until you achieve poker orgy! Chips will be flying every which way, nonstop suck outs galore, and you won't know where you blew your stack but damn it'll be a great night.
