From tonight’s (ongoing) game.
Watching this .GIF loop is great because it makes me think that the Giants have perfected a cloning device and 500 Romos are coming out of the clubhouse, one by one.

@sfgiants1958 This is no longer the era of our father's sportscasts. It's all about marketing now and, bottom line, that is the reason for Amy G. CSN is 30% owned by the Giants and as such it is a marketing tool of the Giants. Thus, in order to attract a wider viewing audience Giants' broadcast are designed to offer something for everyone. Yes, while Amy G. may have little to offer the hard-core baseball fan, that is not her target audience. Her target audience is those who might not otherwise tune in, "baseball mom's" if you will. Marketing the product to all and not just hard-core baseball fans is the price we have to pay. It is a price I am willing to pay or we might still be back in the not so distance past when we were lucky to have maybe 20 Giants road games, and no home games, televised a year.

Would be nice if Amy Gutierrez actually had something to add insight about the team rather than play the role as gamer babe with a microphone.
sfgiants1958 I gotta agree with 1958. Amy G feels like the token female sideline reporter in the NFL. A little too buddy-buddy with the players and too many puff pieces. I dont hate her by any means, would just prefer something else from that role. In fact, I think Jaymee Sire is much better and would be good in that role as well. Go Giants.
sfgiants1958 Amy G. regularly shares information about players on the disabled list, players on minor league rehab assignments, major league promotions/demotions, and other information to the casual fan. While you and I as readers of Bay City Ball and other blogs, staying up to the second with information regarding the Giants, we are not Amy G's target audience. While we know who has been optioned or promoted within 15 minutes of the beat writers announcing such - that is not the life of the average person tuning in to Amy G. For the casual viewer, or even fervent fan without twitter, Amy G. is an important cog in getting information to them in a timely manner.You describing her as a "gamer babe with a microphone" says more about you than it does Amy G.Cheers.
Tom, listen if you like her, great. There's probably plenty more like you. But yesterday when she came up with the photos of the Kruk and Kuip pigs at some county fair, it was just ridiculous. And then K & K responded asking which pig should be named after her. Even more ridiculous. She reported on the Petaluma little league team going to the World Series. That's great. Stick to baseball, Amy G. But when you stray off into the pigpen, and other dumb stuff, it's an insult. So I'll stick with "gamer babe with a mic" until she can prove to me that she's more into the team and less into the dopey entertainment side of things. Cheers to you, too!
tomluvsgiants well, listen tom, if you like her, there's probably lots more like you. But yesterday when she brought up the photos of the Kruk and Kuik pigs at some county fair, it just seemed really, really dopey. And then it got even more stupid when K & K wanted to know which pig should be named after her. I enjoy K & K's humor, but when we have to grovel in the pigpen, shall we say, it's just a waste of time. Stick to baseball. She reported on the Petaluma little league world series team - great. But I'll stick with gamer babe with a mic - just too much fluff.
