Another Frustrating Year?

As a loyal fan of the Giants for over 40 years I have grown accustomed to the typical excitement one feels before the start of another baseball season, only to find more frustration in knowing, that the powers that be, have made yet again, poor decisions.

I must admit that last year was a pleasant surprise to all. We  almost pitched our way to the playoffs, but with a poor hitting team, the pitching staff eventually dried out.

So knowing all that, one would think that smart tactical decisions would be made to bolster the hitting line up. From what I can see, nothing in my eyes was really done.

How do you explain signing hacks (Huff, and De Rosa)that no longer matter to a team and to keep players like Frandsen, and overpaid players like Rowand and Renteria. Come on guys, what are you thinking?

Freddy Sanchez was a bust. His injuries prove it and he's not getting any younger.

Ishikawa does not have what it takes to be a Major Leaguer and it looks the same for John Bowker. About the only bright spots in the Giants hitting department was Pablo Sandoval,(He still has to prove it was no fluke), Eugenio Velez, and Juan Uribe.

I would really consider 2010s new slogan to read more like " The magic is slipping away"

I'm a realist and I have seen too many wasted years come and go. If the Giants fall on there faces this year, look for Sabean and Bochy to go.

If the hitting miraculously comes through, then  we could see something, but it better happen quick, because the magic is slipping away.
