A New Friend to the Fans- Tubesox Nation

I came in contact with a new Giants Blog out there I think you might enjoy. It's kinda like a media watch dog group, except it's focus is toward the Giants ownership and the penny pinching weenies trying to milk us for every cent possible.

I have to say, Tubesox Nation is not only a very entertaining read, but extremely informative. John is taking a stance against the marketing dept and the management. If you're looking for informative stuff, take a few minutes here. You'll enjoy it.

Thanks for the shout out, Jim . . . Nuschler's News is doing a great job of calling out the Giants on their on-field product, and Tubesox Nation is trying to do the same in regards to marketing, pricing, etc.

Here's to giving them the old one-two punch.

John, er, botcho

Sounds great, we'll just have to keep giving it to them

gave you a shout out over a Tubesox Nation, Jim. Hope the fire-fighter puns aren't too much.

Great blog! I'm a member of the Tubesox nation and a lifelong Giants fan. My favorite all-time Giant is Kevin Mitchell, and I am a bit surprised he wasn't even on the ballot.

Anywho, I'll be reading and cheering.

Yeah, it took a lot of restraint for me to not include Kevin Mitchell. He is actually one of my three or four all time favorite players as well. I thought I should try to limit the total options, but almost immediatly regretted it...

I've been long thinking about starting the poll over with other players like Mitchell, Robbie Thompson, Rob Nen, Jeff Leonard, Chilli Davis, Dave Dravecky, plus a few others and some of the current players since there are many more fans on here that only know the current generation than I thought.

Anyway, if you have any other suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Thanks, jim

By the way, tubesox nation is my favorite blog now, keep it up!
