Bochy, Giants give best Bumgarner impersonations
As the team basks in its spirited offseason, they've continued to participate in appearances and segments that bring them a little closer to MLB's fan base.
The latest is a sitdown where manager Bruce Bochy, shortstop Brandon Crawford, catcher Buster Posey, pitchers Jeremy Affeldt, Javier Lopez and Tim Hudson, as well as outfielders Hunter Pence and Michael Morse all take a stab at impersonating World Series MVP and two-time All-Star Madison Bumgarner.
It's quite a hoot.

Weekend MLB matchups
For a matchup in the west, fans will be looking towards San Francisco and Colorado this weekend. Normally nowhere near the top, San Francisco is enjoying a nice start to their season, 4 games ahead of the Dodgers and Colorado is in the perfect position to take over that spot as they are just one game behind. Check out the lines at www.sportsbook.com where everybody bets.
The Rockies find themselves with a bit more of a disadvantage given the current holes in their pitching lineup. With 2 starters on the disabled list, including Jorge De La Rosa, they are likely to start Esmil Rogers on Saturday. With only one start last season it will be interesting to see how he handles the pressure. And don’t forget, the team is still spinning from their first ever no-hitter. Not a bad way to kick off the 2010 season.
The Giants will likely open with Matt Cain, who has an 8-6 record with the Rockies. Having faced the Rockies more than any other club, 18 times, he should be able to walk out with confidence, knowing he is the more experienced pitcher. Cain has a good shot of taking this home field advantage and advancing his record against Colorado.
Sunday, the Rockies will probably plan Jhoulys Chacin who is coming off a great win against the Diamondbacks (12-1). He has proven his ability to master the fastball at this level and might just be able to work his magic again against the Giants.
That being said, the Giants will be bringing out Jonathan Sanchez, whose amazing statistics might be enough to rattle the young pitcher. Having logged his first every back-to-back double digit strikeout games against Pittsburgh and Sand Diego he is itching to improve his record against the Rockies.
The Giants have started their season hot. The Rockies have been contenders for the past few years and the Giants are working hard to prove they are worthy of their position. They know working the numbers this early in the season could help to promote their confidence as a team as well as, hopefully, drum up some fan support. I think the Giants will do anything they can to keep their current position over the formerly dominating force of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Look for them to be on fire this weekend.
As for the Rockies, it’s a rough road back when you are dealt such harsh blows early in the season. Their pitching staff has taken a major hit. But like many before them, they might just be in the position to see their club come through by calling up young talent. Starting brings pressure, but these guys are hungry. If they can stay focused they might just prove themselves as the right man to fill out the pitching staff.
Giants pitching staff need to watch out for Ian Stewart and Clint Barnes. Ian is hitting at .310 right now and some think Clint is ready for his next home run. The Rockies should look out for Eli Whiteside who has been on a bit of a hot streak, taking advantage of runners on base to make the Giants leap ahead.
New Wild West Show Continues
Exactly one month ago, the Los Angeles Dodgers were as close to a lock to win the division as there was in baseball. Manager Joe Torreâ€™s club led the National League West by nine games and was running smoother than a brand new Nissan 370Z on the Pacific Coast Highway. However, baseballâ€™s fortunes can shift gears quickly and over a 162-game schedule, very few teams in the history of the game have managed to avoid rough patches and run wide open all season. (Be sure to check the latest information on all the MLB games by visiting the LIVE ODDS, BETTING TRENDS, and TEAM STATISTICS pages.)
Los Angeles (74-51, +12.4 units) has seen their lead in the division diminish to three games for two reasons, one of their own doing. The Dodgers are 12-16 since July 25, and have a faulty offense to blame. L.A. has scored three or less runs in 13 of its recent 16 losses and it doesnâ€™t seem to be a coincidence that without Juan Pierre in the lineup on a regular basis, with Manny Ramirez back patrolling leftfield, there are fewer scoring chances with runners in scoring position. Though the Dodgers won three of four over the Chicago Cubs, they managed to score five total runs in last three contests and are 27-45 after scoring two runs or less three straight games.
The Colorado Rockies (71-54, +14 units) have been the other reason for the club from La-La Land hasnâ€™t been able to get away with playing undistinguished baseball. Since former Dodger manager Jim Tracy took over, Colorado is 53-26, proving not to be the mercurial club like in the past. The Rockies have won 18 of last 28 to close the gap to present number and came from behind three times against San Francisco, their nearest wild card competitor, to win the series 3-1, which included last nightâ€™s improbable walk off grand slam by Ryan Spilbroghs in the bottom of the 14th. Colorado comes into this series 15-4 after consecutive wins by two runs or less.
The Rockies will be tested mentally, since they have lost 10 of 12 to Los Angeles, including five of six at Coors Field. Jason Hammel (8-7, 4.54 ERA) will be the game one hurler for the Rocks and they have won seven of his last 10 starts. Los Angeles will counter with Clayton Kershaw (8-7, 2.96) whoâ€™s needed a directional-finder this month. The young lefty had been pitching brilliantly this season, however since August; heâ€™s walked 15 batters in 19 innings. The increased wildness and the lack of run support (2.3 RPG) have seen the Dodgers lose Kershawâ€™s last six starts, after winning the previous seven.
This NL West affair opened with the Dodgers as -125 money line favorites at Sportsbook.com and the number has moved against L.A. to -110, with total Un9.5. Colorado is on 26-10 roll at home and has punished lefties, winning 11 of last 12 at Coors. The Rockies are 9-1-1 OVER against teams with a winning record.
The Dodgers have experience in handling Colorado and are 14-5 on the road when the total is 9 to 9.5 this season and is 15-5 UNDER when the money line is -100 to -150, with Kershaw pitching.
This anticipated conflict and series will be available in local markets and on MLB.TV starting at 8:40 Eastern.
