Todd Linden gets his lead off of 1B. Another good game for Todd. 3 for 3 (all singles) with a walk, 3 RBI, a stolen base and a run scored. I don't know.........if Winn has another year like last year......Linden may take his job.

I still think Linden can be an above average player in MLB. From the write up on the Giants website, it sounds like Bochy likes him better than Felipe did.

Winn is a bust, Im sorry anyone who knows anything about baseball knew that the numbers Winn put up after his trade to San Francisco were most likely an apparition and were subsequently appauled by his new contract. Linden is, in my opinion already better than Winn. I think he'll get a chance to prove it in at least 400 at bats this year.

i remember seeing on tv last season a slo-mo replay of linden's swing. it seemed like he had a lot of secondary movements (is that the word?) prior to his swing. can you tell if that's still the case? did he simplify his swing?

The knock on Linden batting from the left side has always been that his swing was much longer and more looping than his swing from the right side. That left a big hole in his swing from the left side that you could drive a truck through. There was even talk of him giving up switch hitting because of it.

Word is he worked on his swing from the left side, shortening it up considerably. It does look more short and compact. I believe all 3 of his hits wee from the left side yesterday. So far so good.

all singles though.. not something special..

im hoping for winn's average season not his numbers after the trade.

something like .287 18 78 (SB: 15) Would be good enough for me.

Tough crowd. So a guy comes to the plate with men in scoring position and two outs three times in one game. Each and every time he hits an RBI single and that isn't "something special"? Like I said.....tough crowd. You don't see that very often.

linden has had all the chances in the world to prove he's mlb ready, and he hasn't. I've already given up on him.

Linden should have Winn's job right now.
