37 days left until the regular season starts. So I figured I would go through the 40 man roster and tell you what I think of each Giant, how I think they are going to do this year. If I like them or not…… you know all the important stuff. I’m gonna start with the pitchers.
How will he do this year?
While our bullpen was amazing last year, there was still a little too many tense situations for my comfort. But when Affeldt was in it seemed like out lead was safe. Watching the way hitters reacted to his wicked late breaking curveball is almost comical at times. I think Affeldt will surprise everyone and live up the the hype that he created last year.
Do I like the guy?
hmm. kinda. On one hand he violates several facial hair rules. On the other he seems like someone who would sit back and drink beer with you while watching some terrible TV show. Also I seem more drawn to players that can give an interview without resorting to cliches and Affeldt is pretty decent at this.
Would I hang out with the guy?
Will he be an essential part of 2010 Giants?
uhhh YES! This guy is absolutely essential for the Giants to have a good season.
