Heston dominates, Giants solve Despaigne, Hector hurts Padres’ feelings

What good is an unbalanced schedule if you can’t make fun of some of the teams you have to face 19 times? With the Giants usually playing fairly boring, fruitless

Giants have many starting pitchers, should trade for one more

“This is our rotation, what we have right now,” said Bruce Bochy. “We’re going to run with it.” It was a totally vanilla postgame quote after another snoozer in San

Did Buster Olney really say Aroldis Chapman was a “realistic option” for the Giants?

Today Buster Olney joined 95.7 The Game’s morning show, and included in his segment was a discussion about possible additions the Giants could make. And no, Olney didn’t mention Everth

Giants break losing skid with Pence’s return and Cain’s best start in ages

Baseball is a funny game. Those who write about baseball tend to describe baseball’s funny traits more than scribes who cover any other sport, save for golf. But the Giants

The Giants’ Angel Pagan problem

It was brought to our attention when Dee Gordon raced around the bases in less than 15 seconds at the beginning of the Giants’ pathetic road trip. Angel Pagan now

Giants have the best battery in baseball

You won’t find too many people who’d call Buster Posey the best player in baseball. Mike Trout is the God of WAR, Miguel Cabrera was a Triple Crown slugger three

Giants starters answered some rotation questions this week

Just for fun, I’m going to write something that’ll piss off the Small Sample Size Police Dept. Because if you can’t piss off the uber-correctors, the people who get joy

Buster Posey hits grand slam, Giants shut out Padres

What’s the big deal? It all seemed so easy from where I was sitting. After all those weeks when the Giants made winning at AT&T Park look more difficult than commuting in the Bay

Pablo Sandoval benched for Instascamming on “diva” during Red Sox game

I’m not a huge fan of hashtags (sorry, Colin), but today gave us a chance to dust off “#scandoval,” an old favorite of Giants Twitter. That made-up word was created in 2011 to

Chris Heston throws awesome (and unique) no-hitter, proves Giants are terrible at sharing spotlight

It was the kind of day that makes me seriously wonder what the hell I’m trying to accomplish, covering all these teams. Or trying to, anyway. I already get enough

Giants draft next Tim Lincecum in first round (maybe … in a sense)

Giants’ main weakness becoming readily apparent

Bruce Bochy sent Yusmeiro Petit to the bullpen as the fourth inning started — not a good sign for Chris Heston. Then Petit came in with two outs in the fourth

Kids don’t like baseball, huh? Could’ve fooled me yesterday …

Ask anyone, from a baseball fan to a sports business reporter, why kids aren’t watching baseball like they used to, and you’ll get a wide range of answers. Playing youth

Giants’ top 8 most surprising May performances

This is getting a little ridiculous. A record of 20-7. 5.15 runs scored per game while allowing just 3.37. Four straight home shutouts. They’re hitting .298/.352/.446 as a team, including

Giants make surprising move, designate Casey McGehee for assignment

With Casey McGehee not hitting or fielding well for several weeks, it appeared likely that a difficult decision would come at some point. I’m just surprised it happened before June

Giants win seventh straight, Vogelsong and Belt loving life in May

We could focus on how this was a very Coorsy game. There was a rain delay in the bottom of the ninth that lasted an hour and 44 minutes, and
