Alert: Ryan Vogelsong has a gnarly beard now

Vote in the poll! Ryan Vogelsong has a gnarly beard now. Look at this gnarly beard: He is Brandon Belt now. Looking forward to the dingers and slumpy shoulders. Unless he's not Belt, but more ... Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports Remember when that beard wasn't gross? I dyed my beard black for the 2010 postseason, too. That was after the Giants won the pennant.

Tim Lincecum almost certainly starting the season in the rotation

Bruce Bochy has spoken, and the competition for the fifth spot in the rotation probably won't be much of a competition.

Don't wake them. They seem so comfortable. Of course, that's not really fair. The Giants have been active, just in a sleepy kind of way: Casey McGehee (~ $5 million)Norichika Aoki ($4.7 million)Jake Peavy ($9 million)Ryan Vogelsong ($4 million)Sergio Romo ($6 million) Total: $28.7 million.
