Once again, the Giants will be severely handicapped defensively. Aubrey Huff will patrol right field with Aaron Rowand in center and Pat Burrell in left. Let's see how the tri-water buffalo defense works out tonight.
Here is tonight's lineup.
With the injuries to Cody Ross and Andres Torres, this is the best offensive lineup that Bruce Bochy has to work with. Defensively, not so much.
I would have liked to have seen Nate Schierholtz in there against the tough lefty Clayton Kershaw. Schierholtz did well against the St. Louis Cardinals' left-hander Jaime Garcia and seems to hit lefties better than righties.
Mychael Urban of CSN Bay Area said it best -- "Bruce Bochy loves him his veterans." That said, it is not a surprise that everyone in the outfield is in their late to mid-30s
Will Bochy's reliance on proven veterans backfire? Tune in to CSN Bay Area at 7:15 p.m. to find out.
