Greek Giant

The Giants had a good home stand, going 5-3 and in position for a respectable, if not excellent month of June. Tonight our boys of San Francisco take on the hated Dodgers for the first in a four game series at Dodger Stadium. Tyler Beede is on the hill against Kenta Maeda. First pitch is at 7:10 PM.

Here is the official Giants preview of the game.

The Dodgers are 48-24 and basically cruising with their high-powered hitting attack and superb starting pitching. Cody Bellinger is having an MVP season and Hyun Jin Ryu is having a Cy Young season. And so it goes..

For the Giants, This is a seven-game road trip and a moment in the season when they may turn the corner into respectability before Farhan Zaidi starts dealing pieces away.

Five Questions

  1. Should the Giants trade Jeff Samardzija?
  2. Should Pablo Sandoval get more playing time at third base at the expense of Evan Longoria?
  3. What is wrong with Derek Holland?
  4. Do the Giants pitchers miss Dave Righetti?
  5. Who will have the highest batting average (minimum 400 PAs) for the Giants this season?
