Welcome to the San Francisco Giants 2017 season. And to The Giants Cove.
The Giants Cove reports on the San Francisco Giants 24 hours a day 7 days a week (except days that begin with an “S” or a “T”).
You will discover that The Giants Cove exudes a scent much like the fresh cut grass at AT&T Park, and is as affordably refreshing as the Park’s generous $22.00 six ounce cup of Anchor Steam.
The Giants Cove is Richard Dyer, proven by severe medical probe testing to eat, breathe, and exude Giants baseball and MLB erudition.
You will be getting the exuding part…
Bottom line: Giants Cove baseball has got you covered. (Note: a little soap and warm water will remove most of that.)
As the late great Yankee legend Yogi Berra might have put it, “I welcome the 2017 season with one word: bring it on!”
During the off-season I was focused on conducting my usual rigorous workout regimen— glancing briefly each morning at an expensive set of free weights in the garage, and eating a strict diet of pre-packaged Oreo-based meals covered in a thick maple syrup.
But I am now ready to face the 2017 season which I expect will either be, 1) a pleasant distraction to the vagaries of life; or, 2) a raging hellscape of melting bullpens and walk-off home runs.
With The Giants Cove everybody wins:
> For San Francisco Giants fans there is finally an antidote to the honey-coated kitty litter continually being fed to them by the Giants front office.
> For Major League Baseball aficionados The Cove is a welcome place to find thoughtful discussion, drive-by analysis and metric-flavored excitement about the game.
> And the Giants front office staff will continue to duck in and out the side entrance of AT&T Park on 2nd Street, reacting to The Giants Cove the way Jerry Seinfeld reacted whenever he saw Newman.
Posting “Comments” on The Giants Cove
I love Giants fans and I am bonded with anyone who loves baseball and thoughtful discussion about baseball.
So let’s discuss, give strong opinions, sharply criticize, completely disagree, and question. But all within the context of having respect for people.
Some commentors feel their opinions need the additional help of stating that whoever they disagree with is “stupid”, or the other person’s opinion is worthless. That kind of school yard mentality is not only demeaning it’s really boring.
The following comments are not allowed (thank you MLB Trade Rumors):
— Attacks, insults, or inappropriate name-calling directed toward other commenters, the post author, journalists, teams, players, coaches, front office staff or anyone else.
— Inappropriate language and related censor bypass attempts, lewdness, insults, etc.
— Juvenile comments or extensive use of caps or text message-type spelling.
— Spam-type links or self-promotion.
— Idiotically dumb general comments about how you’re sick of this topic/this person. Go a little deeper.
