I hadn't actually met David before last night and I just wanted to express my sympathy and really tell him what Mike meant to me and that the whole clubhouse in Minnesota. I wanted to show him love and support, it was good to just let him know that we're all thinking about him and his family.

Tuesday night’s game isn’t expected to be much better, but Wednesday, the Giants should be back over 6,000-7,000, and there are reasons for the disparity, largely because of the way the team sold tickets for April. Those with season tickets could choose between several different packages, and by far the most popular packages included weekend games.
When the Giants take batting practice three hours before a home game at Oracle Park, catcher Buster Posey isn’t a participant. Posey’s not arriving late to the ballpark and isn’t starting games cold, but he now has a different way of preparing for competition that’s designed to keep him fresh and healthy. I’m waiting a little bit closer to game time to do that (hitting) routine, just down in the cage,” Posey explained.
