Welp, on a bright note, rookie pitching phenom Jose Fernandez was as good as advertised. Just a shame they wasted his effort with a lack of clutch hitting & a Cishek meltdown. Hoping Jose goes again next Saturday, as I already have tickets to that game.
Will be attending Opening night tomorrow......most likely the ONLY time there will be even close to a full house at Marlins Park all season.
Axford then comes in and in the 10th gives up two flyballs to the wall. Not taking the hint that they were squaring him up, Roenicke sends him back out, Pennington leads off the inning with a line drive double down the line and Eric Hinske follows with about a 430 blast to center.
Well that was a crappy day for the Giants, at least on the field. The Ring Ceremony was decent, if a bit corny and the game sucked. Maybe now that the Ceremonies are done we can stop looking at 2012 and finally get into 2013. Let's get a routine going. Let's not have ceremonies before every home game and 2012 was nice but it's a brand new year. Hopefully today is a mulligan (And as we know teams have these from time to time) and move on to the Rockies, who have been playing well to start the season.
Why did they wait until the third home game for the ring ceremony? I thought they did it on the home opener.
I would think they wanted to make it a whole weekend of celebrating. Yesterday was Buster Posey's MVP day and I think they didn't do the Ring ceremony because the game was on Fox. Also, with the way the Giants do ceremonies (Which is great by the way), having everything take place on the same day would have delayed the game like 2 hours.
