    Scouting Report:
    Giants: Zito hopes to regain the magic he spun on April 9 of last year, when he delivered the Giants' first win of the season with a four-hit shutout at Coors Field. Zito's woes on the road, where he's 0-7 with a 9.45 ERA, have been well-documented.

    Rockies: Nicasio had a no-decision in his last outing against the Phillies. The right-hander allowed two runs (one earned) in 5 2/3 innings. He's 1-0 with a 3.12 ERA in his last three starts.

    Scouting Report:
    Giants: Petit, who has appeared in 73 Major League games in parts of six seasons, was recalled when Matt Cain was placed on the DL on Friday. Petit pitched in one game this year, in July. He also made a start for the Giants last year

    Rockies: Bettis took a no-decision in his last outing at Philadelphia, giving up a run on six hits and a walk with five strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings. The rookie will be making his sixth career start.

    Rockies: In his first game back from the bereavement list, Chacin pitched the Rockies past the Miami Marlins 3-2 at Marlins Park. Chacin threw seven innings and the Rockies rallied for two runs in the eighth to make him the winning pitcher.

    You've got to figure Zito gives up at least 3 homers before Bochy goes out and grumbly yanks him, unless he gives up like a 3 run shot and a solo HR back-to-back and forces Bochy's hand earlier.

    CF Blanco
    2B Scutaro
    1B Belt
    C Posey
    RF Pence
    3B Sandoval
    SS Crawford
    LF Peguero
    P Zito

    Stacked lefty lineup vs. Nicasio, who's slightly more successful against LHH than RHH (.225/.322/.427 vs. .292/.333/.443) despite throwing with his right hand.

    Giants will do well when jhoulys expect it. So Zito will probably throw a shutout.

    This makes no sense, since we all know lefties can't hit lefties and right-handers can't retire lefties.



    Playoff Bochy.

    Sooner or later. Probably far later than we would have hoped. It would have been perfect if last year was his last year, and he went out a semi-hero. But noooo...back to Barry being Barry

    D-f-a!! D-f-a!! D-f-a!!

    Would you trust a blind scout? Of course you wouldn't but that's what you do when you simply go by stats

    Only one person doesn't understand the ignore list. Predictable and cowardly

    Pretty weird that all you have to do to be treated nicely when you're clearly beyond being able to play is accept $126 milllion with a smile.
