Giants Rumors & News

In the last game the Giants will ever play at Giants Stadium, the 2009 Giants decided to honor the team that ushered in the stadium, the 3-11 1976 Giants, by playing just like them. Actually they played worse. Craig Morton, Walker Gillette and John Mendenhall were nowhere in sight, but somehow their ghosts invaded Giants Stadium (and somehow they have ghosts even though they’re not dead yet), as this year’s edition played like a last place team. The final score was 41-9, but the game really wasn’t that close.

This game is probably beyond analysis, but we’ll try anyway. Tackling? Pathetic. Rushing? Pathetic. Defense? Pathetic. Offense? Pathetic. That pretty much covers it. With the season on the line, the Giants just didn’t show up, and now they’re as dead and buried as Jimmy Hoffa.

MDC Fantasy Baseball Expert Draft Review

Fantasy

Undervalued picks:

Round 3: Justin Upton

Player A: 159 games, 606 at bats, .297, 26 homers, 101 rbi, 97 runs, 34 steals

Player B: 138 games, 526 at bats, .300, 26, homers, 86 rbi, 84 runs, 20 steals

Player A is Matt Kemp who went 6th overall (1st round) and player B is Upton who was the last pick in the 3rd round. Upton missed games last year because he was placed on the DL with a right oblique strain. He is only going to get better next season and why not draft someone two rounds later when the numbers are similar.

Round 5: Kendry Morales

Morales had a breakthrough year last year batting .306 with 34 homers, 108 RBI and 86 runs. He hit .330 with 19 homers and 59 RBI after the All-Star Break. Even though he struggled in the post-season his ranking next year  should not be effected. 1st baseman Joey Votto was drafted in the second round and his numbers should be around what Morales does this upcoming season.

Round 6: Carlos Lee

Lee is one of the most …
