Giants v. Rockies, 2011 Spring Training Preview: Chance of Rain May Give Giants a Day Off

Well, it’s my last day here in Scottsdale for the San Francisco Giants’ Spring Training and, just my luck, it is supposed to rain today. Awesome. But I won’t let a little wetness stop me from heading down to Scottsdale Stadium anyway for their weather permitting matchup with the Colorado Rockies today, with the first pitch scheduled at 1:05 p.m. The weather according to my sources says the precipitation should start around noon, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed as hard as I can that it doesn’t.

The Giants first day off from Cactus League games is scheduled for tomorrow, and I’m sure they wouldn’t mind two days off instead of one, but after losing both of their split squad games yesterday, maybe they’d like to redeem themselves a bit.

And now, you San Francisco Giants:

CF Andres Torres
2B Freddy Sanchez
1B Aubrey Huff
C Buster Posey
LF Pat Burrell
3B Pablo Sandoval
RF Cody Ross
SS Miguel Tejada
P Tim Lincecum

rain, rain, go away….come again any other day but today!
