Welcome to the upcoming 2014 San Francisco Giants season. And to The Giants Cove.
The Giants Cove reports on the World Champion 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 $18.00 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.
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.)
Once again The Cove has been busy conducting its rigorous off-season 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 we are now ready to face the 2014 season and can’t wait for Opening Day. Oh, and did I mention that we’re really fired up?
With The Giants Cove, everybody wins: for San Francisco Giants fans their empty, listless world finally starts to make sense again. For Major League Baseball aficionados The Cove is a welcome place to find thoughtful discussion, analysis and flat out excitement about the game.
And for the Giants front office staff it’s back to ducking out the side entrance of the main office with their heads down, reacting to The Cove the way Jerry Seinfeld reacted whenever he saw Newman.
To sum it all up, the great Yankee statesman Yogi Berra might have put it this way:
“The Giants Cove welcomes the 2014 MLB season with one word: bring it on!”
Posting "Comments" on The Giants Cove
Let's discuss, give opinions, sharply criticize, completely disagree, and question. But all within the context of respect for people.
Some commenters feel it's not enough to merely give their opinions and thoughts. Their opinions need the additional help of stating that whomever they disagree with is "stupid", or the other person's opinion is worthless. That school yard mentality is not only demeaning it's boring, and it's why sports blogs in particular are easily dismissed by the general sports establishment.
The following comments are not allowed:
-- Attacks, insults, or inappropriate name-calling towards other commenters, the post author,
journalists, teams, players, or anyone else.
-- Otherwise harassing or threatening other commenters/authors/MLB personnel in any way.
-- Inappropriate language, including swearing and related censor bypass attempts, lewdness,
-- Juvenile comments or extensive use of text message-type spelling.
-- Writing comments in all or mostly caps.
-- Spam-type links or self-promotion.
-- Idiotically dumb general comments about how you're sick of this topic/this person or that
the topic is not newsworthy.
Say, can you tell me the names of these 2 Novocain announcers the Giants permit to suck up air time?
I have go to say man that I love your blog! I might not know more about the technicalities/analytics of the game, but have learnt quite a lot reading your articles. I was not born or raised in SF, but have quite a liking towards the game and Giants, and am learning my way through.
@Dhara Mistry Dhara--You are so right. My blog is to be loved! I could not have said it better. I am appointing you as the President of The Giants Cove Blog Fan Club. Which does not yet exist. Your duties are simple: read me, adore me, follow my direct orders.
So glad you are into baseball and the Giants-- everyone is equal among us, be you a new fan or long time tedious boring story-telling frump of a fan.Have to go eat cookies--- bye!--Rich Dyer
