    Hall of Fame slugger McCovey dies at 80

    https://www.mlb.com/giants/news/hall-of-famer-willie-mccovey-dies/c-300075672

    I feel like crying,.. most Giants fans adore Mays,.. I've always loved McCovey the most, my all-time favorite baseball player.

    The last Giants game I went to,.. I had front row seats close to 3rd base. Just before the game they had a ceremony at home plate. I watched, then my jaw dropped, there was Willie McCovey in a golf cart heading for the plate, they drove right by me, within 10 feet,.. I was kind of stunned, but as he passed I yelled, "Mac",.. he didn't turn, but he raised his hand, I love to think he heard and waved for me.

    He was a wonderful kind man with a tremendous heart.


    God bless Willie McCovey

    Goddamn Cardinals trade for Paul Goldschmidt whom I was wanting the Astros to sign.

    Astros sign some catcher. Definitely not Realmuto. Marlins want Tucker.

    I sure hope so. You thought pujols post-steroid contract was bad. Phillies could use him. But 400-500 mill for .249 34 and 100. Bregman hit .286 31 and 103 in only his second full season.

    Giants fired their GM at the end of the season, hired Farhan Zaidi, Zaidi was the dodgers GM, though their executive structure was such, he was really someone else's top lieutenant, highly respected. He's made a couple of decisions, one is to retain Bruce Bochy and staff, which is good,.. the other decision is to look into trading Madison Bumgarner, that will hurt, but we should get a lot for him. Feels like a new beginning.

    Astros sign J.T. Brantley, still in the mix for Realmuto.
