But today is the day--the first spring training game!  The details (time, radio/TV) are at the bottom of this post. Here is the Giants' lineup plus the "extras" and pitchers who are scheduled to...

Placing My Bets

by DrLefty The Mr and I are in Las Vegas this weekend. We're going to the Sphere tonight to see U2. We've been talking about placing some kind of bet on the Giants while we're here. Problem is, we know zero, and I mean nothing, about sportsbooks and sports betting....

The Other Shoe

The Other Shoe

by DrLefty When I woke up yesterday, I was positively dreading writing Out of Left Field today. Nothing, and I mean really nothing, had happened in Giantsville since my last column was published. I half-considered begging off entirely. I've already used the 49ers as...

Airing of Grievances

by DrLefty Happy Festivus!  As all "Seinfeld" fans know, Festivus is a holiday invented by Frank Costanza, George's father, to escape the frenzy of the Christmas season. It includes an undecorated metal pole ("I find tinsel distracting") and Feats of Strength ("Stop...

I Left My Heart…

I Left My Heart…

by DrLefty Let's get this out of the way: I adore San Francisco, always have. And I hate LA. Lest you think this is just team spirit talking, my feelings about the two cities have nothing to do with the Giants or the Dodgers. They come from my own lived experiences. I...
