    .........................

    ST. LOUIS CARDINALS (2-4) @SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS (2-4)

    Game 1: Friday, April 8th @ 1:35 PM

    VS.
    Jake Westbrook..........Jonathan Sanchez

    Code:
                                        STATS
                                1        Starts   1            
                                0        Wins     0            
                                1        Losses   1         
                                16.62     ERA      3.18                  
                                2.54     WHIP     1.38                  
                                4.1      IP       5.2      
                                3        K's      8
                                1        BB's     3

    Scouting Report:
    Cardinals: Westbrook followed up an uneven spring with a shaky first start. He's still trying to refine his location, but that's not all that unusual for a pitcher who has often been a slow starter.

    Giants: Sanchez's appearance in the home opener is somewhat fitting, since he closed last year's regular season by contributing five innings to the Giants' 3-0 victory over San Diego that clinched the NL West title.

    Game 2: Saturday, April 9th @ 7:05 PM


    VS.
    Jaime Garcia......Matt Cain

    Code:

                                0.67     WHIP     0.83

                                0        BB's     0

    Scouting Report:
    Cardinals: A rough first month of Spring Training is totally forgotten for the second-year lefty. He pitched the season's first shutout and now faces the team against which he tossed the other shutout in his big league career.

    Giants: San Francisco's most consistent pitcher a year ago, Cain picked up where he left off last Saturday by blanking the Dodgers on five hits through six innings. Cain, who has cut down on walks in each of the previous two seasons, issued no free passes.

    Game 3: Sunday, April 10th @ 1:05 PM

    VS.
    Kyle Lohse..........Barry Zito

                                1.00     WHIP     0.83                  
                                7.0      IP       6.0      
                                5        K's      5
                                0        BB's     3

    Scouting Report:
    Cardinals: Lohse fell victim to one rough inning in his first start, but then something very encouraging happened: he rebounded and finished strong. He's healthy, and that means there's considerable optimism for Lohse going forward.

    Giants: Considering that an auto accident prevented Zito from performing his usual between-starts routine before his inaugural 2011 outing, he pitched capably. Zito surrendered three first-inning runs before retiring 15 consecutive Dodgers batters.

    So far we've played in two parks that I absolutely despise. I've never looked more forward to playing at home than I am right now. Can't wait.

    Ah damn, usually Cain would be a sure-fire confident start, but Jaime Garcia is pretty damn good. It should make for a great series...hopefully we keep Pujols cool though, if he breaks out of his funk that's bad news.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how Sanchez responds to the pressure. It'll be good for him, I think. I'm in the camp that thinks he was pretty much broken down at the end of last year's season, so this will be a great opportunity for him to get that monkey off his back.

    I don't mind a bit of torture creeping into this season. It's good for the mojo and it's good for the soul.

    I think that's a little unfair to say. He def. lost it the last two playoff games and was running near empty. But his first two playoff starts were good, and the first one vs. the Braves was the best non Timmy game (even better then Cain's masterpieces). Sanchez single handedly the pitching staff in late August, and led the charge in September. I also think he pitched great vs. the Dodgers, so let's hope he continues his progression from the second half of last season.

    I think it's been mentioned in other threads, but I know that the Giants ask MLB to start the season on the road. They prefer to play at home to end the season (which we do vs. the Rockies this season)

    In all honesty, we have the pitching advantage in each game (with game 2 being very close). For all the hate Zito gets (sometimes deserved), he def. has the advantage over Kyle Lohse.
