Giants Preview

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Some quick notes on the second-place Giants.

  • The Marquis Grissom Renaissance has extended into April 2004: .353 average, .421 OBP, .676 slugging, 1.098 OPS, three home runs, four walks and three strikeouts.

  • Ray Durham is off to a good, .941 OPS start as well, but injured his quadriceps Tuesday. He was listed as questionable for tonight's game.

  • Neifi Perez is, well, overachieving with a .704 OPS.

  • The rest of the non-Barry Bonds crew has been downright awful. J.T Snow, Michael Tucker, A.J. Pierzynski and Edgardo Alfonso have OPS marks between .558 and .360.

  • Players batting in the batting slot behind Bonds in the eight games he has started this season are 5 for 34.

  • As a team, even with Bonds, the Giants are being out OPSed, .761 to .707.

  • San Francisco's bullpen has an ERA of 5.28, with 42 hits and 18 walks allowed in 29 innings, against 15 strikeouts.

  • Comment status: comments have been closed. Baseball Toaster is now out of business.
