Washington Times columnist refers to Michael Morse as “dumb,” gets Morse’s stats completely wrong

I don’t make a habit of reading the Washington Times, and I’m generally distrustful of anyone who goes by “Thom.” But neither of those things stopped me from clicking on one of

Giants can’t recover from Cain’s shaky start, drop third straight

Giants lose second game in a row – what’s that all about?

Krukow: Giants think Wheeler threw at Pence for swinging too hard

The Giants are literally winning two out of every three games

It’s tough to go all-in and declare that a team is really, really good in June, ESPECIALLY after watching all of their games. Instead, the tendency is to talk about how

Giants come back, celebrate jersey-ripping, walk-off win over Mets

The Giants would’ve trudged back to a quiet clubhouse after a 4-3 loss, before driving sadly to their homes and apartments – if this game took place in 2013. But it’s 2014, and

Sergio Romo’s struggles – slump or trend?

Worrying about a closer who’s tied for the Major League lead in saves sounds a bit ridiculous, but here we are. Besides some injuries that don’t really seem to be

Probably just a coincidence: @957thegame tweeted far more about the A’s last night than the Giants
