More Splash Hits debuts

For years, I’ve followed other fan blogs on
the San Francisco Giants and other baseball issues and
thought I had voice that I could share with others. So I
decided to launch my own blog as soon as the 2009 season
ended. It seems the right time to start because the 2010
season starts as soon as the 2009 ends. So over the next few
months, we’ll be following the Giants, their offseason moves
and potential moves to make, as they put together their
lineup for the 2010 season.
