Giants v. Cardinals, MLB Schedule Preview: Lineups Set for the Giants Home Opener

The San Francisco Giants home opener is this afternoon and will start a historical weekend of reminiscing fond memories and celebrating the success of their 2010 championship season. The St. Louis Cardinals should prove to be a worthy adversary to try and crash the Giants homecoming party over the next 2 days, starting today after the World Series banner is raised before today’s game.
