And so it begins...

Welp, the G-men opened up their cactus league schedule today against the Cubs, and promptly lost 12-6. Kevin Correia got absolutely hot-barbecued, allowing 7 hits and 4 earned runs in just 1 inning of work. It's ok though Kev, no need to look over your shoulder just yet, your '07 performance has granted you immunity through even a villa of spring training turds.

A few bright notes: Freddy Lewis and Velez both tripled; Winn went yard; Rowand picked up a couple hits; and the Beach Boy worked a perfect ninth, getting two ground outs and a whiff.

Little Franny, despite receiving inspiration from his idol Robby Thompson a few days back, loxed up a bagel at the plate in three appearances.

The club did commit two errors, but none by anyone who matters.

Winnin' Big at the PR crap table

2008 is the perfect time for the Giants to be spending their 50th season in San Francisco. This will allow the black and orange community to celebrate with various alumni all season long, and distract us from the 70-win season goin' at the ballpark!
