At least their lockerroom is feeling good

Thankfully the Bonds cloud has lifted the spirits and joviality in the S.F. Giants lockerroom this season as Keith Law notes (Insider access required, sorry), it's going to be a long, ugly season for the black and orange:

Giants' fans are in for a long, ugly season. The team started nearly all of its projected regulars on Sunday against Morales and a JV Colorado squad -- Todd Helton, Troy Tulowitzki, Matt Holliday, and Brad Hawpe all stayed home -- and lost 10-2, mustering just five hits and playing some uninspired baseball. The buyer's remorse may already be setting in with Aaron Rowand, who looks out of shape and didn't run out a two-out groundball in the first with a man on third. Ray Durham is a statue at second base. Other than Matt Cain and Tim Lincecum, there aren't many reasons to go see the Giants this year; check back in 2010 when the fruits of the '07 draft start to trickle in.
It's good to hear back from Keith after about a month's hiatus from his blog.
