    Also, my computer's background on the projector is a large SF logo.
    I feel sorta bad because now those Rangers fans will look at Giants fans the way we looked at Angels fans for the last 7 years........okay not that bad but feel for them.

          Jason Schmidt comes to mind. But agree would never have wanted SF to give Uribe a deal that long. Just blows having to see him in a Dodgers uniform next season.

          • The Rockies just locked up Tulo through 2020 as well. These moves are responses to the Giants winning it all, as teams in the division want to challenge them for sure.

              • As expected after a WS win, the Giants exercised 2012 options on Boche and Sabean:

                • What is everyone's feelings heading into the 2011 now that the celebrating is over? Here some random thoughts:

                  -Panda looks to be in damn good shape and very cool to see him working out with Barry.

                  -Do not like the Tejada signing and worried about the lack of depth behind him if/when he gets hurt. Hoping Crawford makes some noise this spring training.

                  -How does the rotation fall after Timmy? Would love to see Bumgarner take the regins as the #2 starter and to be that lefty that splits up Timmy/Cainer. Do wonder if it will be asking a lot to take on that many innings early into his career.

                  -Interesting to see how they handle Belt this spring. Do they "Posey" him and it is either win a starting job or be sent to AAA or if they would carry him on the bench.

                  -Anyone else still go on youtube occasional and watch all the playoff/World Series stuff? I still get chills.

                  • My celebration of the Giants has not ended. I was razzing my Dodgers fan friend last night.

                    With the black and yellow song getting a lot of play recently, I went back to the black and orange version.

                    The rotation will again be the strength of the '11 team. I'm hoping that keeping a majority of the team in place will allow the chemistry a chance to continue to build in the regular season. With losing Uribe, other guys will have to step up and create some runs. Sabean will find another bat or two for the home stretch if they get off to the start they need,

                    I bought the World Champs DVD. A must have to remember details of their run.

                      • The Giants will actually be fun to watch for the first time in years!

                        I'll be at opening day vs the Dodgers on March 31st :).

                        • ^uhh they've been pretty damn fun to watch the last two years, no??

                          Really hope Pablo can get on track this year. Hopefully Belt is up after his Super 2 status is over. Man what a 3-4-5 that would be with Posey. I think a big key to the season will be Torres. We need him to hold down the leadoff spot.

                            90% of the last two years was torture....it was worth it in the end though :).

                              I hope you wear all your World Series gear and let them have it. They can never shove the no ring crap in our face again. BEAT LA!!!!!!!!!

                              Fired up to see Belt at some point this year. That would be an exciting batting order to have and how young all 3 are Panda (24), Posey (23), and Belt (22).

                              This is hanging at the enterence to the club house in Scottsdale. Chills.

                                Looks like Brandon Belt made the team, and Ishikawa is going to be placed on waivers.
