Greek Giant

The Giants tied the Mariners in yesterday’s Cactus League action, 0-0. The Giants had seven hits in the game and committed one error. Alex Cobb started the game and went five innings pitching a shutout along the way and allowed only three runs. He also threw five strikeouts against zero walks.  He looked ready to start the season.

I never will. Here it is:

That at bat shows how much courage and smarts Sergio Romo had. He was a Great Giant.
