    Meh, hasn't had a great spring, and Huff will work fine as the long reliver. I'd rather Law make the team.

    Petit, Machi and Law would be my guess.

    Strikeouts are overrated

    The difference between me and you is I don't need the internet to discuss baseball intelligently.

    I think Bochy will want a 3rd lefty.

    He could. Petit, Huff and Machi are all out of options so it could be all three. No telling with Bochy/Sabean.

    Petit/Machi/Huff would be the most uninspiring decision but also the most likely. For a team that didn't do anything to upgrade the starting rotation, there's no excuse for using carrying those 3 guys in the pen. The Giants plan should have been to shorten games not allow teams to comeback vs their bullpen.

    The could also use the age-old Giants tradition of the phantom DL. You're probably right though. Like Steven said, that would be pretty uninspiring.

    You have to admit Hudson is an upgrade.

    Yeah, I suppose the Giants deserve some props for replacing Zito, but you get the point.

    I do share your disappointment.

    I was going to comment on that as well. Replacing Zito with Hudson is a momentous upgrade.

    I'd call it a 126 million dollar-upgrade.
