Observations from the center stripe: Play ball edition

THE GIANTS scored 89 fewer runs and gave up 42 more last season. They haven’t done much to improve their run production, so the pitchers better have a great year…MOST TEAMS that lose two of their five starters (including their ace) in Spring training would be counted out, but we’re talking about the Oakland A’s. They always have somebody waiting in Sacramento to step-up…HAVE GLOVE, will travel: Pitcher Josh Roenicke, a 2001 grad of Nevada Union, will be playing for his fifth team in six years if he makes the Washington Nationals roster…PEOPLE IN Anaheim are still upset because the Anaheim Angels changed their name to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Who don’t they split the difference: Los Anaheim Angels…MANY PEOPLE think baseball is slow enough without more instant replay…UMPIRES CAN use those replays to figure out the new “Buster Posey Rule” governing collisions at home plate…SOME NASCAR drivers think baseball is boring. Maybe they should sit in the stands and watch a bunch of cars make left-hand turns for five hours…BUDWEISER IS behind a semi-serious effort to make Opening Day a national holiday. I’ll drink to that.

    The old joke about LA baseball was: On LA freeways you’re either a dodger or an angel. Steeee-rike!
