Greetings and Salutations
Some of you might be wondering what Stankeye means. Well, if you are you certainly aren't a Giants fan, and are so ignorant in the ways of the great ones that I don't even want to talk to you, but I guess I'll just go ahead and enlighten you as to the meaning of the term and the purpose of naming this page after it anyway. Stankeye is a Mike Krukow-ism for when a batter gets buzzed by a high and tight fastball and glares at the pitcher with a "do that again and I'll plant my maple stick in your noggin" look. Krukow calls it stankeye, and I figured it's an appropriate name for an opinionated fan page because I will probably give everybody who underperforms or just plain sucks, on any team, including the Giants, the written equivalent to stankeye. Some will get it occasionally, some will get it every day (cough Mike Matheny cough). Some may get it as they sleep at night, when I drive to their house after a game and peer in their windows...uh, never mind. So it's a blog rife with stankeye, and you can bet I'll break out many more Krukisms along the way (vis a vis "Help me, Jesus fastball" or "Rear back, fill your pants and throw").
Anyway, my first actual post (not counting this contrived and laughably overlong intro) will be along sometime this coming week, where I'll focus on two moves which Brian Sabean has made this offseason that, in my opinion, are absolutely horrendous. Yeah, I like to start off a new blog all pessimistic like that.
