We’re here, we’ll cheer for Opening Day!

We’ve waited through a warm winter, soaking in the news of the new Cubs, Padres and Dodgers.

We’ve watched free agents go to other teams, a few opting to stay away from the 3x World Champions.

Now, we’ll see the fruits of every front office maneuver, the handiwork of “Dream Team” front offices and fantasize about foot long hotdogs and jalapeno cheese gut busting fries.

Then we’ll sit back and watch our boys, the San Francisco Giants. It’s the same as it has been for the last six years or so, minus the blockbuster bank breaking Aaron Rowand type signings. Our front office made a few moves and we lost our beloved Panda who, during Spring Training, made us realize that the piles of food that went into his mouth would make its exit as a giant, loudmouthed and unclassy belch. So long, Pablo. We wanted to keep our great memories of you. You could have been like Juan Uribe, who still gets cheers despite wearing the Dodger blue. Now we’ll just ship you off into obscure Brett Butlerville.

Meanwhile, we have a season to enjoy. This is an off year, whatever that means.

Welcome to JDR, and get your fingers ready, set go…

    7:00 P.M. Dish Channel 913: San Francisco Giants vs Arizona LaRussaBacks

    FYI, Free MLB Games Promotion week on Dish Network – Channels 900 to 914 . Shel can catch his Dodgers at 1:00 P.M. on Channel 909 play those *New and Kembrel-Improved* Padres with the exciting possibility of joining his unrequited love, GeeJaybytheBay, and split screen her ‘beloved’ Nationals v Mets game also at 1:00 P.M. on Channel 907).

    Opening Day of Major League Baseball! Better than Christmas for some of us!!!

    (I cannot confirm how long the Dish Network will run – the website has been down all morning.)

      edit: that’s “Kimbrel” as in Craig Kimbrel traded along with Melvin Upton from the Braves just yesterday. Yikes! The Padres appear determined to compete this year!

      • annapirhana says:

        Meanwhile, the Braves are wondering if there will be an opening day crowd after the post-apocalypse roster trimming!

        Of all the “re-tooled” teams, I am most excited about watching the Poodres. I have no beef with them. If our boys can’t do it this year, I’d like to see San Diego enjoy a run at the WS. AT&T Park South is a great stadium, and Poodre fans are nothing but pleasant to invading Giants horde. Plus, they vehemently hate incoming Dodger fans, and will let everyone know of their sentiments. Who can dislike that?

        • shoelessinbearvalley says:

          The Padres, the 2015 Cinderella powerhouse of just possibly not only the West but the NL. Yeah, if not the SF (perish the thought!), I’ll be rootin’ for ’em … although some lost soul-less sods will still find themselves rooting for the souther team in pewter blue.

  2. shoelessinbearvalley says:

    Red Sux shredded the Phillies today, 8-0. ‘Funny’ thing was, Pablo went 0-5 with 3 SO’s … I’m shocked, shocked! 😛

  3. shoelessinbearvalley says:

    Wow. Rollins just crushed a 3 run homer in the 8th. LAD breaks the tie and goes ahead (although rather ashamedly and meekly), 6-3. boo.

  4. shoelessinbearvalley says:

    nice hit by Aoki on 3-2 count … but gets “cut down” trying to score on Panik’s double. double heck.

    • shoelessinbearvalley says:

      Pagan drives in Panik! Pagan 2-2 tonight. Giants take now almost insurmountable lead over DBacks … 1-0.

  5. xoot says:

    The Giants are swinging the bats, playing good D and MadBum’s strong (if a touch wild). I like all that. Meanwhile, Roberto Kelly learned a lesson, I hope. And the bad news about Peavy and Cain took some of the shine off opening day. Well, a long tough April will weed out some of the bandwagonners. Still, it’s opening day!

    • shoelessinbearvalley says:

      Worse case scenario … I cannot go there right now; but I agree Cain’s lingering soreness after his last start is not what I was expecting to hear on opening day. Meanwhile, Peavy’s ‘dead arm’ appears to have migrated to his back now.

  6. shoelessinbearvalley says:

    Aoki scores! Pagan doubles again! Wow!

  7. shoelessinbearvalley says:

    Panik scores on Posey sac fly. Giants 3 DrussaBacks 1.

  8. shoelessinbearvalley says:

    Pagan and McGehee both score on Crawford’s triple! Giants 5 DoobieBacks 1.

  9. shoelessinbearvalley says:

    Crawdude! DP. … no one on for Goldschmidt. ha!

  10. annapirhana says:

    Well, bad things happen when I leave the room to brush my teef. It’s now 5-4, Giants. I’d hate to see MadBum’s beauty marred by the boolpen.

    • shoelessinbearvalley says:

      Yeah. Machi was hammered. And tonight R-O-M-O didn’t spell relief. Bochy calls on Affeldt to stop the hemorrhaging.

      • shoelessinbearvalley says:

        Apparently, Machi too is trying to help Kontos make Bochy’s regular season roster a more permanent thing once Ishikawa comes back from the DL. Machi just not good tonight. Alas, Romo had to come in and hardly had a moment to show anything but his version of the wayward, non-sliding slider.

  11. shoelessinbearvalley says:

    Affeldt strikes out Peralta! preserves Giants now down to 1 run lead. A game that looked ‘in the bag’ is now a must win (or prove a big let down). C’mon Giants. Score an insurance run or two in the 9th.

  12. shoelessinbearvalley says:

    Goldie strikes out to Casilla. Ballgame! The Giants remain tied for first place. Good job from MadBum, Affeldt, Casilla, and Giants bats tonight.
