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 […]
People were just about ready to start believing in Tim Lincecum again, after he stuck out Jose Reyes with a high fastball...
Before the second of a 2-game series with the St. Louis Cardinals, San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy touched on a several injury-related topics, as well as the ever-changing lineup which causes fans to wince in pain on a near-daily basis. — Joaquin Arias isn’t in the lineup today, which leaves Emmanuel Burriss at third […]
This was the kind of San Francisco Giants loss we’re all used to. Madison Bumgarner pitched pretty well but got nothing in the way of support or luck; Buster Posey had 3 hits; the team walked zero times instead of 10. Those 10 walks last night led to a game that took 213 minutes to […]

All spring, it was about Matt Cain. Sure, we were monitoring the progress of injured Giants like Buster Posey, Brian Wilson and Freddy Sanchez, and there was the issue of figuring out the roster, but Cain’s contract discussions were of greatest concern throughout March. In Cain’s first start of the season, six days after signing […]
Matt Cain’s strikeouts reached double digits for the second time this season. The first was his near-perfect shutout in the home opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates, when he struck out 11. Still, considering two things — (1) the Milwaukee Brewers’ lineup is far superior and (2) how Cain started Sunday afternoon’s game (a 4-pitch walk […]
It’s been a gray, gloomy morning at AT&T Park, marked with periods of light rain about an hour before first pitch. The...
