The Giants are in last place in the NL West, already 4.5 games out of first place less than two weeks into the season. The team has posted league worst offense at second base, second to last at first base, and third to last at third base and shortstop. Overall, the offense has been worse than I imagined, with some players looking like their careers are over –Aurilia (2 for 11) and Renteria (5 for 32)– or not ready for prim
e time –Ishikawa (5 for 22) and Sandoval (7 for 33).
On the pitching side, I'm hopeful that Lincecum will bounce back from these early struggles, but it's painfully obvious that Randy Johnson will not, and Barry Zito may be well on his way to earning $20 million dollars a year broadcasting alongside Krukow and Kuip.
I'll reserve my “told you so's” for later, but Jeez, this team looks awful right now.
