95.7 The Game’s ratings trending upward, KNBR still on top

The Nielsen numbers were released today. If I’m not mistaken, the San Francisco figure posted by 95.7 The Game is the highest since we started posting the sports talk ratings for

It’s not like we really needed any further proof, but it wasn’t hard to tell on Monday night which Bay Area team is the best in baseball and which is in

Against all odds, Giants come back and win a game Tim Lincecum didn’t start

I had an entirely different post ready to go in the top of the ninth. Can you blame me? The Giants were down 3-2, they had only two hits, and

Giants only have one good outfielder right now, which is a problem

Angel Pagan has a bulging disc in his back, and the Giants hope an epidural injection today will help speed along the healing pain-tolerance process. Pagan has already received multiple

With the Giants at their lowest, it’s Tim Lincecum to the rescue

You know you shouldn’t believe in this stuff. Baseball games aren’t affected by what month it happens to be. Seasons don’t turn on one inning. So let’s just accept the fourth

Brewers fans crushing Giants fans in All-Star balloting – will Giants get more than one All-Star?

Stuffing the ballot box is sooooo 2012. That’s the apparent mindset of Giants fans, who pissed everyone off a couple years back when they voted three Giants (Melky Cabrera, Buster Posey

Brandon Belt keeps destroying minor league pitching, so don’t expect the Giants to be patient for long

I’ve been wrong about a lot of things. Turns out Brian Wilson, who pitched to a 0.96 ERA with 10 strikeouts over 9.1 innings in June, isn’t done yet. I

Giants no longer in sole possession of first place (or a decent offense other than Posey)

Getting no-hit again by Homer Bailey would’ve been preferable, if only because it would’ve brought this whole thing full circle. Instead, it’s just another lousy offensive performance and the strongest

Romo blows save, Posey ties game, Giants lose 7-3 in 11 innings, Krukow questions Bochy

This one had it all. A return of vintage Matt Cain. Multiple Sergio Romo hanging sliders, which led to a two-run home run and two almost-homers. Buster Posey coming off

So much for that Lincecum lift, maybe they could use a Belt bump

Tim Lincecum is “gonna party” after no-hitting the Padres for the second time in less than a year

After last night’s loss, Bruce Bochy called out the collective performance of the starting rotation as the “biggest issue right now through this tough stretch.” That wasn’t the case on

It’s about time: Giants place Pagan (who’s suffering from nerve irritation) on DL, call up Duvall

If only predicting the outcomes of games were this easy. For now, anyway RT @AlexPavlovic Bochy said Pagan is in Scottsdale today, getting more tests on back. They still don’t think it’s

Pagan decision coming soon, Groeschner “concerned” about swelling in Belt’s hand

The season is too long to expect that any baseball player will get through the entire campaign without playing hurt. The tough part is negotiating injuries to key players when the

Giants look clueless against Odrisamer Despaigne (the new Kirk Rueter)

Before Monday night’s game I asked Manolo Hernández Douen, the writer behind beisbolporgotas.com, what he knew about Odrisamer Despaigne. He compared the 27-year-old Cuban right hander — who was set
