It’s back in black and orange for the San Francisco Giants!

I, as well, am back in action writing about my favorite team. You can expect regular updates from me on games, stories, and insider tips, and rumors.

The season started off great for the Giants with their first victory over the Milwaukee Brewers 10-6.

Tim Lincecum, 2008 NL Cy Young winner, took the mound on opening day for the Giants. He was totally amped to start the season, as the adrenaline was getting to him all night. He couldn’t calm himself down and only lasted three full innings.

The Giants hitters looked especially sharp today—including their youngsters.

Travis Ishikawa hit a first inning base clearing triple into triples alley that got the crowd rockin’. Pablo Sandoval looked impressive and made Sabean look like a genius. We also had three homers in the game by Randy Winn, Aaron Rowand, and Bengie Molina—our savvy veterans.

So much for the team that can’t hit, huh? Maybe this season will turn out better than we thought!

The best part about the first day of the season is all of the anticipation. Are we going to have a good team this year? That is to be determined.

However, I’ll make my official declaration here and now that the Giants win the National League West this year and finish the regular season with an 85-77 record.
