    You gotta admit, the first season of that thread was pretty awesome. There was at least one entry per day... mostly due to the fact that he benched our starting RF after the first game.

    Who didn't think we were going to make the playoffs? We should have. We were pretty much victims of the worst possible scenarios.

    Well I'm sure several people gave up after Posey went down, or in September.

    People who gave up at that time are quite obviously jokes for fans. Giving up on an entire season for losing a player, any one player is illogical in every perspective imaginable.

    Should've just left it at "...illogical in every perspective imaginable". Went just a tad over the top with that last bit. At least that confirms you're a super fan.

    And the fans were victims to the worst possible offense. It's not like the offense was great before Posey went down and it was even worse then before Sancehez went down.

    fans should be allowed to be positive or negative. an all positive board is boring...

    the attitude on the board will be more reflective of what the team is doing, don't blame the fans for commenting on the team.

    Ok, back to the origins of the thread. Nate the great. He was really have a great run in the first half of the season, but the problem with Nate as good as he is defensively, he's just as mediocre with the bat where mgmt can try to improve themselves cough Carlos Beltran.

    Nate isn't a starting OF'er, but on a team so deficient in the OF, he is here... I don't think he'll be as good as he was last year in the first half. Probably .260 minimal power, minimal RBI and great defense.

    If Nate were to have a career year, the giants would be poised to really make an impact this season. Someone will have a career year. (i think Bumgarner is going to dominate this year)

    Those are two awful examples leftymo. They were not the sole reasonse for failiure. Nor was Posey. It's no secret our lineup was nothing special anyway, but we lead AZ by an average of 10 games throughout the season and Voltron was SUPPOSED to be that guy who tipped the scale in our favor. That was the whole reason we got him. We were plagued by numerous obstacles and the end of last season was quite frankly the culmination of everything falling apart for the team, nothing really went right.

    If you don't think the absence of Peyton Manning this past season was the reason for the Colts woes, then you might be a crazy person. Obvious the team had other flaws, but with Manning in there, no way the Colts only win 2 games.

    Beltran was a move in the right direction, someone we greatly needed, but I don't think anyone really thought he'd "tip the scale" for us since our lineup was still very deficient with only him and Pablo, as you basically said.
