Spheroid: Staats on the Giants

Why did you sign up for an MLBlog?

I mainly signed up because I have no one to talk baseball with and in the past
couple of years have become crazy obsessed with the Giants so I needed a place
to show how much I love them. My friends
have no idea what I am talking about when I go into these crazy rants about
games or players. And I also just want
to learn more about the game and so I can have more of my own opinions on it
instead of just going with my dad’s like I have in the past.

What is your favorite team and why?

The San Francisco Giants, of course! I
originally liked them because they are my dad’s favorite team but now I know
more about them than he does and I just really love all the guys. They are great players and great people.
And there is absolutely no better place
to watch a baseball game than AT&T Park.

What is your favorite thing about blogging?

My favorite thing about blogging? Hmmm…Well, I have found that since starting my
blog I have learned a lot more about baseball. I guess you could say it has broadened my horizons. I know more about players that don’t play for
the Giants when before I only cared about Giants players. I know stuff about other teams and what to
expect when the Giants are going to play them. So yeah my favorite thing about blogging is that I get to learn more
about baseball.

Favorite blogs, including at least one in the MLBlogosphere:

Baseball By the Bay and Bleeding Pinstripes are my top two with Some Ballyard
coming in a close third.

My most memorable MLB moment:

Just last Saturday I got to go on the field before the Giants played the Rockies and take pictures with all the
guys. It was amazing! I shook Bruce
Bochy’s hand and it was so big that I could barely curl my fingers around
it. The palm of his hand was almost the
size of my whole hand! He doesn’t look
that big on TV but man is that guy huge.

What would you be doing if you weren’t blogging?

Studying. I really should do that more.

Last MLB item you bought:

I just ordered a Steve Kline shirt. I
love how feisty he is.

Who is your favorite MLB player?

Omar Vizquel!  Without a doubt one of the
best defensive shortstops EVER! 11 Gold Gloves.  Most hits by a shortstop since 1957 with 2513.
Most double plays turned by a shortstop with 1596. The man is simply amazing!

 Happiness is…

Friday night in the freezing cold at AT&T Park eating garlic fries and watching the
