August 20, 20143

Game called due to incompetence of Cubs grounds crew, Giants will probably protest

The above picture shows my favorite part of Tuesday/Wednesday’s debacle: Mike Krukow looking angry enough to declaw a lion with his own teeth, while the grounds crew effortlessly drags the

Wrigley Field grounds crew lollygags, Mike Krukow calls it a “staged” effort to give Cubs rain-shortened victory

Update No. 2: Mike Krukow was no less upset during his segment on KNBR this morning.  “I’ve never been so pissed off in my entire life, at a ballgame. Watching

Now’s the time for the Giants to gain ground on the Dodgers (hey, stop laughing!)

If you feel bad about giving up on the Giants at around 2:30 pm on Saturday, don’t. The Phillies had a 5-1 lead in the fifth inning. Tim Hudson was already

Sergio Romo still trusts stuff, himself

Sergio Romo is a relatively simple pitcher. He became a reliever in 2006 with the Augusta GreenJackets, and from there he worked his way up through the organization before reaching the pinnacle in

“We came alive.” – Giants come back from four down, win 6-5

Jeremy Affeldt gave up a two-run home run in last night’s extra innings loss to the Phillies. After the game, Gregor Blanco got a talking-to from Bruce Bochy for screwing

BASG notes: Hawk does Hawk things, hang with Bochy, Warriors schedule and more

Before we get into the notes, jokes and curmudgeony comments, it’s time to update your calendars with a cool event taking place in a couple weeks — Bruce and Kim Bochy are

Giants get everyone’s hopes up before losing in 10th inning

I wrote the following two paragraphs (and bullet points) before the bottom of the eighth inning: Since this was the epitome of a “can predict ball” game, where Ryan Vogelsong gave

Sanchez’s uncertain future could delay Posey position change

It started with a tweet from Henry Schulman during Sunday’s loss in Kansas City: Posey to 3B, Susac catching in ’15? No argument here, but Posey has to be sold. #sfgiants.

Tim Lincecum gets torched, Giants get swept

After a night off from the Giants saga, I watched them lose yet another game against a team with a winning record from the comfort of a Portland living room. My

Bad omen day: Belt back on concussion DL, Giants score 2 runs on 12 hits, lose

This was one of those “maybe it’s not our year” kind of games for the Giants. Perhaps they’ll prove us wrong; after all, it’s not like the 2010 or 2012

Same old story: Giants fail to score four runs, lose another series to a good team

Angel Pagan got a couple hits in his return, but that didn’t stop Mike Krukow from telling the viewing audience that (let’s all say it together) “you’ve got to tip

Panik on fire, Sandoval in contract zone, Morse goes RBI-crazy, Giants win 7-3

This probably should’ve been a rout on the order of Sunday’s game in New York, Madison Bumgarner’s 94-pitch shutout that San Francisco won by nine runs. But the Giants were good enough

Tortora: seating capacity and sight lines gave Levi’s an edge over AT&T for Sharks outdoor game

Not that it was any huge surprise given the info leak over the weekend, but the official date-time-venue for the Sharks-Kings 2015 outdoor game was announced Wednesday morning. But you

Brewers take advantage of hanging breaking balls, trade deadline, defeat Giants 4-3

For a while, this looked like a night to write about Pablo Sandoval. Instead, it was a night that epitomized the most frustrating parts about this Giants team. Sandoval turned around

Sounds like NHL chose Levi’s Stadium over AT&T Park for outdoor Sharks game

The location of an upcoming game between the San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings, slated to play outdoors, has not been announced quite yet. But thanks to a link

What now, Mr. Sabean?

It’s panic time. Stop it, there’s no time for Joe Panik jokes. Or Joe Panik, according to Tuesday night’s lineup. The Giants have scored six runs in the last six games,
