Fangraphs projects Giants to miss postseason, finish 5 games behind Dodgers

Despite the pain of a four-game sweep at Wrigley, Giants fans are still engaged, hopeful, perhaps even confident. Among the many reasons why, four jump out. 1. They looked even

A weekend to forget: Giants get swept, Aoki leaves game after getting beaned

Unlike many Giants fans, I’ve never bashed Hector Sanchez. He’s a backup catcher. His bat isn’t all that great, but every once in a while he gets a hold of

Wrigley Field evacuated after game due to bomb threat

Pretty crazy stuff coming out of Chicago after the Cubs beat the Giants 2-0, as the press box was evacuated due to a bomb threat. Police officer says they get

All hail Kelby Tomlinson (and an apology to Ehire Adrianza)

Don’t tell A’s fans, because they’re pretty sensitive about this stuff, but the Giants found their own Eric Sogard this week. Kelby Tomlinson, the bespectacled infielder who was called up

Giants’ postseason hopes rest on Matt Cain’s expensive right arm

The Giants blew two save chances last night, so naturally that got people talking about the bullpen. You know, the same bullpen that has a 1.66 ERA and 1.09 WHIP

Madison Bumgarner isn’t racist, he’s a control freak

Some people believe Madison Bumgarner is racist. They say the evidence speaks for itself. Just use your eyes — he keeps yelling at hitters who flip their bats, and none

The Boston media went into full-snark mode this week on Pablo Sandoval

When Pablo Sandoval cited his desire for a new challenge after signing with the Red Sox, the Bay Area turned into an echo chamber. Just about everyone said some variation

Giants take Leake … from Reds for Mella, Duvall

The San Francisco Giants didn’t stand pat after all. In fact, after the top three aces all went to American League teams, the Giants went after the pitcher I thought

Giants’ mission — spend Trade Deadline being Dodger-blockers — is now complete

Postcard from Dodger Stadium

I hate the Dodgers. It has nothing to do with any Giants connection because I’m not a Giants fan (what a shocker.) It has to do with what happened in

The Giants’ mission — to be in the conversation whenever a starting pitcher is mentioned under any context — is going quite nicely this month. And with Tim Hudson and

A great solution for Tim Hudson if Giants acquire another starter

I heard something in the press box yesterday that was brilliant, only I can’t credit the person who said it. For one thing, it’s hearsay. “You know what so-and-so suggested?”

SF sweeps Oakland: Giants rotation, closer aren’t perfect, but they can hit

What else could Giants fans, or the Giants themselves, ask for? They lost two starting pitchers before the season even started. They lost their two best outfielders for extended periods.
