They do something similar to this over at MLB Daily Dish, and since it was a busy week at the blog (and with the Giants, for that matter), I figured I’d take a brief look back at what happened this week (well, a little more than a week, to be exact):
- Though it was a little longer than a week ago, I offered up my thoughts on the idea of Buster Posey changing positions: to summarize, I want him to stay at catcher.
- After reading an excellent piece by Wendy Thurm over at Baseball Nation, I was inspired to write a post about Barry Zito — in which I suggest that maybe it’s time for him to part ways with the Giants.
- In admiration of the awesome season that Sergio Romo has had, I wrote up a brief bullet-point list of amazing Romo stats.
- The Giants released their 2012 schedule: they’ll open in Arizona, and are set to face all four AL West teams in interleague play.
- I previewed the 2012 free agent outfield market, which is unfortunately looking a little thin.
- A couple days ago, news broke that Bill Neukom would no longer be the Giants’ CEO. In response to this, I wrote up a brief post on Bill Neukom (I didn’t like the news).
- Yesterday, Neukom and Larry Baer held a press conference relating to the news in which, among other things, Baer said that there won’t be a change in organizational philosophy, and he doesn’t expect payroll to go down.
- On the field, the Giants have been playing quite well lately (they’re currently on a five-game winning streak). Earlier in the week, Clayton Kershaw and the much-less-talented Dana Eveland dominated the Giants, but things suddenly clicked for San Francisco after that as they managed to score eight runs in back-to-back games. Pablo Sandoval hit for the cycle last night, and Carlos Beltran reached the 300-home run milestone the day before.
Thanks for reading!
