    Probably to some extent, but catchers to have something to do with the success of pitchers since they call the pitches and go out and talk to pitchers to calm them down when they need to. We may...

    Molina will be gone after this year one way or the other. They've basically guaranteed Posey will start at least five games a week. I'd guess at least one of those each week will be behind the plate....

    He also mentioned Fred Lewis as a possible trade piece for the Giants. Apparently he's not paying much attention.

    I do like the idea of getting Willingham, Sizemore or Cabrera though. I'm not a...

    Was there when Timmy got his Cy last year. It was the 2nd game of the season, when Johnson was pitching.

    I went looking around ESPN.com for some sort of schedule for the season, but left disappointed. The best option looks like checking each Sunday schedule and looking for the ESPN logo for their...

    We have the potential to be the best overall staff in the league if both Sanchez and Zito swing toward the higher end of their wide range of possibilities.

    Quick, name the catchers in the league who can both hit in the middle of the order and call a good game .... maybe a half dozen.

    Pretty sure they're planning on getting Posey his catching experience in Fresno. No need to panic.

    He's also a former good pitcher. Not that interested unless he can prove he's got his stuff together in the minors or something.

    And I admit I don't know much about the deeper stats. I simply thought WAR meant that player had a better chance of creating wins.

    I will agree that Lewis is average. I guess I'm just tired of...

    On base percentage is great. It's important. The best general indicator of a player's value on offense. But simply having a career .355 OBP is not enough to guarantee a guy a roster spot over someone...

    Unfortunately that's probably true. And probably true of most 8 and 9 hitters in most lineups. The fact remains that he hasn't been able to consistently do the little things. He's a one-tool player....

    The thing about the leadoff spot is that you're only guaranteed to lead off an inning once per game. Other than that, the main thing is that you're going to get more plate appearances than anyone...

    Yeah that's true. You do get points for putting together strikeouts, since they count as putouts by the catcher, but it would be nice to get credit when your pitcher throws a complete game or a...

    So I'm sure this has been brought up before, but I just bought my copy of The Show '10 and I LOVE the fact that you can now call games a a catcher in "Road to the Show" mode. Really makes it a...

    Ok so that's one aspect of baseball. How about moving runners over or driving them in? If there's a man on third and one out, you need to get that runner home. It's great he can take a walk once in a...

    I think Fred Lewis has fallen out of favor with Giants management for some reason.

    They're pretty set on seeing what DeRosa can do in the 5-hole. Leadoff is set (Rowand), as are 3-4-5 (Panda-Huff-DeRosa). I'd be surprised if Molina is not 6th, considering Bochy loves his power,...
