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

You know it’s going bad when a beer commercial comes on celebrating World Cup soccer and you think, “Wait, is there a match on right now? WHERE IS THE REMOTE

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

AT&T Park Garden now open, two smaller avocado trees now growing behind CF wall

Buy me some kumquats and artichoke … The Giants are growing a bunch of fruits, vegetables and herbs behind their center field wall, as they’re betting that *some* (definitely not all) baseball fans will

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

Giants somehow didn’t lose their seventh in a row

This was either a pivotal moment or the first lucky outing for Sergio Romo in quite a while. With runners on second and third, the Giants held a 6-4 lead

Giants change their minds and promote Joe Panik, still hate utilizing the DL

Brian Sabean knows trades for starting position players or pitchers simply don’t happen in June, but he couldn’t keep waiting around for the Giants to pull out of this tailspin. After

Giants lose again, prove Krukow’s theory of ownage

Giants sign Daniel Carbonell, a Cuban CF who’s “considered a five-tool player by some scouts”

The Giants love switch-hitters, and they added one that surprised some folks today. There were five teams rumored to be after 23-year-old center fielder Daniel Carbonell, but the Giants weren’t

Tony Gwynn will be greatly missed

Baseball lost one of its best today. Tony Gwynn died at the age of 54, which is really too young for anyone, but seems especially cruel in this particular case.

Romo blows second save in less than 24 hours as Pagan’s misplay leads to inside-the-park HR

After Sunday’s Tim Hudson-led win over the Mets, Bruce Bochy was honest: “No, there’s nothing I can complain about.”  This game has a painful way of evening things out. “It’s baseball,” Bruce
