Just another entry in the "Good Thing It's Spring" department:
Matt Cain is the latest San Francisco starter to struggle.
The Giants' right-hander lasted just 2 1/3 innings against the Angels on Thursday, allowing five runs on five hits including a two-run homer to Vladimir Guerrero.
Lowry needs surgery. That's good. It means his mind is OK, his control issues were physical. Frandsen won't be the SS. That's good. It wasn't fair to jerk him around like that. Give him the 2B job he has earned. Messenger is sent down. That's good. He hasn't done well. This gives Merkin Valdez a better chance to make the final cut. (And what about Erik Threets?)
Otherwise, we really stink. That's bad.
