SF Giants Rumors / Trade Rumors 2011: Of Ponytails and Charlie Sheen

The Realistic Giants Fan: A Discussion on Poor Decisions

Some interesting things have been coming out of Giants camp of late. First and foremost we must discuss Tim Lincecum's decisions involving hair. Let's just come out and say it, the mustache was dreadful. It looked like something from 7th grade. Look, we all want the opposition to fear as many beards as possible, but some just aren't the facial hair type. What's next? Matt Cain with patchy chops? Lincecum followed one hair story with another, this time pulling his long locks into a ponytail. I don't believe I have ever seen a pitcher - not counting softball - that performed while sporting a horse tail. I hope, as far as in the regular season, I never do.

I told you left field was gonna be a cluster-mmmph. I also told you that Aaron Rowand was exclusively a center fielder. That assessment has been held up by Bruce Bochy. Now they have thrown Schierholtz in the mix. Why? I think Nate belongs in right. If, in the unlikely case, that he cracks the opening day lineup, who are you moving him to left for? Cody Ross? Nate Schierholtz is a natural right fielder, who knows AT&T well. He also has a cannon for an arm, which comes into play more often in right. I am no baseball genius, so I'm sure the coaching staff will catch onto that as well.

Wilson tweaked his back, then went and allegedly kicked it with Charlie Sheen. The Charlie Sheen incident reeks of Showtime. Wilson said he went there to discuss technical aspects for the upcoming Major League 3. That is obviously more of Mr. Wilson's overactive imagination at work, seeing as if there were another Major League, it would be the 4th installment. I don't think being around Charlie Sheen is the best of decisions right now. I think Brian knows this. Some have given him a pass, so to speak, by arguing that of course a young single man would take the oppurtunity. That's probably true for most, but Brian Wilson, as we know around here, though odd, is actually very intelligent. He should know better.
