Looking ahead: Kelby Tomlinson could play interesting role in 2016

It seems weird to write about next year, since it’s late August and the Giants are chasing the Dodgers. However, Kelby Tomlinson’s speed, plate approach and offensive results got me

Poorly-kept secret: Giants’ website has Heston starting Sunday in place of Cain

Dodgers’ bullpen problems go past the obvious

I was walking through downtown San Francisco on Wednesday afternoon, and with the A’s leading the Dodgers 3-2, I thought it might be interesting to check out the Dodgers’ side

Has Ryan Vogelsong come through since rejoining the rotation? YES! YES! YES!

I’m not sure why I didn’t think to write about Hunter Pence clutching his left side last night as he rounded first. I guess I just always assume Pence’s muscles
