SAN FRANCISCO–While it’s disappointing that the Giants didn’t get their first win of the season it’s 162 games you move on obviously if they win you can point to creating momentum with the opener and how important it is to try and start the season on the right track. You just couldn’t get it better in baseball than this. Their back to work on Tuesday after having a day off on Monday in Arizona. What is disappointing they spent that money and they didn’t get that immediate reinforcement from their new star closer Mark Melancon.

It’ll be interesting to see that first save for him and in my mind he’s the guy I know Melancon’s make up, I know his method and he’s really going to be exactly what they need but he obviously wasn’t his first time out. Melancon has the goods he’s the legit closer that San Francisco picked and let’s go back to when this decision was made they had Adroldis Chapman on the free agent market in the off season and Giants got Melancon and are very happy to pick him up.
