The young first basemen, Brandon Belt, had high hopes when he made the team out of spring training and got the opening day start. Unfortunately soon after, things started to spin out of control for the young lefty as nothing was going his way. Due to some injuries and roster changes Belt got another opportunity to prove himself in the majors, the only question was if he’d take advantage of this chance.
The Giants family was sad to hear about Brian Wilson, their one-of-a-kind closer, going on the disabled list for the entire 2012 season, but the one bright spot is we get to see him take the mic with Kruk & Kuip! This Sunday as we finish up the series versus our Bay Area rival the Oakland A’s we not only get to listen to Wilson in the booth, but we also get Wilson gnomes! If you are as excited about this as I am you better catch the game on CSN Bay Area Sunday afternoon at 1:05 local time.
It was no surprise to Giants fans when Tim Lincecum got off to a rough start to begin the 2012 season, it’s how he usually begins the year, but to be struggling this far into May has the whole Giants community on their toes. He finally seemed to be getting on track Tuesday versus the Rockies until one bad inning where he gave up 3 runs, he ended his day going 7 innings and getting the no decision. Giants fans are holding their breath when Timmy makes his next start on Sunday versus our Bay Area rival the Oakland A’s to kick off inter league.
