Panik walks off the Angels, plus a goodbye letter from Ruthless Sports Guy

The Giants walked off their 2015 interleague debut with what turned out to be an awesome pitcher’s duel/really weird late inning pie fight with the Angels on Friday night. Both Chris

Bumgarner is Bumgarner again: Giants’ ace outpitches Kershaw, yells at Dodger

This was one of those games where any fan who was wearing orange and black in the Dodger Stadium stands will brag about how they were in attendance for the rest of

Giants’ weaknesses on full display in loss to L.A.

It’s way too early to look at the Giants’ record (8-12 after Monday night’s 8-3 loss to the Dodgers) and project a .400 winning percentage throughout the entire season. Buster Posey’s

Casey at the bench: It’s time to move McGehee to the DL

This is a bit overdue, unfortunately. I wanted to post something on what we’re seeing from Casey McGehee last night, but I only had time for this: Casey McGehee has grounded

Good vibrations: Giants win Bumgarner vs. Kershaw showdown with Panik’s walk-off sac fly

The bottom of the ninth was so very, very Giants, the kind of walk-off win that would’ve seemed routine last April. Madison Bumgarner was good but he wasn’t perfect, San

Thanks to Maxwell heroics and Lincecum double plays, Giants rout Dodgers 6-2

There is no such thing as a “must win” game in April, but losing Tuesday night’s game would’ve been rough. And it wasn’t the standings as much as the idea that

Unlucky 13: How much longer can the Giants keep an extra pitcher?

The Giants are actually 13th in Major League Baseball in batting average, which means they’re in the upper half. Hooray! Yet they’re hitting .231, and it’s a punchless .231 at

After all that Madison Bumgarner did last October, he deserved one more day in the sun. Before 1 pm the clouds parted at AT&T Park, and Bumgarner received the loudest

Giants’ rotation is what we thought it was (except not really at all)

The Giants owe a debt of gratitude to Clayton Kershaw, both for keeping their business model (“We’re the opposite of the A’s, because our shit works in the playoffs”) looking

Giants beat D-Backs, and Chris Heston can pitch

There would’ve been no reason to throw in the towel after the first series of the season if the Giants got routed in this game, especially since none of their injuries

Why Cody Ross is a perfect fit for the A’s (and not the Giants)

Last night Susan Slusser reported the Oakland Athletics’ interest in Cody Ross, who’s famous around here for hitting five home runs in the 2010 postseason, including two off Roy Halladay.

Giants lose another player, lose 7-6 to D-Backs

The good news is that the soul of this team hasn’t vanished. This is the same group of fiery, talented players that we remember from October, and they gave Arizona

Bumgarner and new look offense lead Giants to Opening Night win

So far, so good … once the game started. The Giants released a worrisome Matt Cain update before the game, along with the expected announcement that Ryan Vogelsong would start in place of

The last time the A’s and Giants were shut out of the postseason in the same year was 2011. Most experts think that’ll happen again in 2015. According to a
