After watching an awful selection show on TBS, complete with botched interviews, awkward moments and overlapping talking by the panel, we now know who will represent the Giants and the Athletics in the 2012 Major League Baseball All-Star Game on Tuesday, July 10. From the San Francisco Giants… Buster Posey C .296, 10 HR, 40 […]
After winning 20 of their last 29 games, the San Francisco Giants are by themselves in first place. The entire pitching staff seems to be peaking at the same time, everything about the offense is aggressive, and on defense they’ve gone from cringeworthy to competent over the span of less than a month. They’ve done […]
Since it was obvious to anyone who can count that Santiago Casilla wouldn’t enter Monday night’s series opener against the Dodgers under any circumstances, the only thing for people to question (translation: bitch about incessantly) was why Buster Posey was on the bench. Posey was the lone offensive force of note on Sunday and had […]
The San Francisco Giants, thanks to Duane Kuiper and an extremely eager marketing team, have overused the word “torture.” It’s time to hand that word to the A’s, at least for a week or two, because they’ve been tormented by this series. Oakland had this game. Shane Loux (who lately has made the Giants miss […]
Nobody predicted Barry Zito would be this bad, but a couple of you came close. Zito allowed 8 earned runs and struck...
Tough to blame Matt Cain if he were a little tired on Monday night. And it doesn’t matter how “focused” or “unflappable”...
It didn’t look good for Ryan Vogelsong in the 4th. Buster Posey did what he seems to do more often on the...
Based on how the ball is flying this afternoon, we might see some home runs hit at AT&T Park on Friday night. Check out this blast Madison Bumgarner hit, which landed at least 20 rows deep in Section 140 of the bleachers (behind the 382′ sign) and ricocheted off the sections’s back wall. http://youtu.be/i4gQhg01Eag?hd=1Video can’t […]
We arrived in San Diego on Thursday, and we’re heading to L.A. today and will stay there until Thursday. As always, I feel weird when I’m out of town and can’t watch (almost) every pitch of every San Francisco Giants game — so it’s really going to be an adjustment in July when my wife […]
There was a game last night, and from all accounts a pretty good one. I didn’t see it because I’m in San Diego, where I parked my car at Qualcomm Stadium at 6 am this morning to try to find my wife so I could cheer her on while she ran a half-marathon. After getting […]
Everyone watching the game on television saw the moment when the crowd went crazy after Melky Cabrera’s single in the 8th, his third hit of the game. Cabrera found it impossible to repress a smile, then he took off his helmet and acknowledged the crowd. Cabrera’s only been in a San Francisco Giants uniform for […]
