SF Giants Rumors: Throwback Lincecum, Torres Gets Big, Romo Save, MVPosey, Etc.

If you missed last night’s San Francisco Giants game, it felt like a throwback Tim Lincecum night. Lincecum was on his A-game. He allowed a bomb early on in the game, and that was pretty much it. He went 7 innings, allowing 1 run, 3 hits and 1 walk with 6 strikeouts! Let’s hope he can continue to build off of this start, and put together some quality starts going forward. Little...

Angel Pagan injury: Giants CF misses 10th straight game, plus lineup

Giants center fielder Angel Pagan is not in Wednesday’s Giants lineup, making it the 10th game Crazy Horse will miss since injuring his hamstring two Saturdays ago. Before the injury Pagan had started 45 of 49 games, all in center field. In his absence, Gregor Blanco has slid over from left field and Andres Torres has been the new regular starter. The Giants haven’t missed Pagan’s...

SF Giants lineup: Sandoval returns, Pagan still out

Pablo Sandoval is in Bruce Bochy’s lineup tonight against Toronto after missing three games with a strain in his foot. The Panda missed the entire series in St. Louis, with Joaquin Arias and Nick Noonan holding down the duties at third base. The initial diagnosis had the Giants entertaining the possibility of keeping Sandoval out for an extra week, so it’s worth keeping an eye...

Jays activate Josh Johnson, Rajai Davis from DL

The Blue Jays activated right-hander Josh Johnson and outfielder Rajai Davis from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday. Johnson joined Toronto in an offseason blockbuster trade with Miami. He is to start Tuesday night against the Giants in San Francisco. He has missed the last six weeks with a right triceps injury. In four starts, Johnson is 0-1 with a 6.86 ERA. Davis is recovering...

Toronto Blue Jays Prospect Watch: Aaron Sanchez

With the 2013 First Year Player Draft starting on Thursday, we take a look at the current crop of prospects already fighting their way to the big league team, the Toronto Blue Jays. First up: Aaron Sanchez. Born in Barstow, CA, Sanchez is currently considered the Blue Jays’ number one prospect according to Baseball America and MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo. The twenty year-old possesses...

Why haven't the Giants placed Angel Pagan on the DL?

The San Francisco Giants will have a decision to make soon.  They will have to decide whether Angel Pagan's injury is actually going to heal soon enough to justify the roster spot he is currently taking.  For the eighth-straight game, Pagan was not in the lineup.  He is battling a hamstring strain that seems either ready to go out on him further or ready to heal depending...

Why Is Matt Cain Struggling

Walk around AT&T Park and ask people inside and outside of the organization what’s wrong with Matt Cain and you’ll get a different answer every time: “He’s tipping his pitches from the stretch.” “It’s just the Cardinals, that’s all.” “The Cardinals got our signs from Bengie Molina.” “It’s his command.” It’s worth trying each pair of pants on, but...

Lincecum Gives Giants Quality Start

Tim Lincecum (4-5, 4.75 ERA) gave the San Francisco Giants (31-27) a quality start tonight giving them the win over the Toronto Blue Jays (24-33). Lincecum threw 7.0 innings, allowing just one run on three hits and one walk with six strikeouts. This outing marked the fourth quality start for Lincecum and the second-straight quality start by a Giants’ starter. Lincecum gave up a...

Resurgent Pence Providing Long-Distance Thump to Giants’ Batting Order

Last week, as the Giants were in the middle of dropping three of four games to their cross-bay rival Oakland A’s, there was one man you definitely could not blame for the team’s Interleague failings. That man was Hunter Pence, who was apparently trying to single-handedly bomb the team’s way back into the series. With the Giants struggling to get anything going against the A’s...

The Giants Have Time to Adjust: Part 2 -- Offense

Believe me, I understand. The mainstream sports media angle about the 2013 San Francisco Giants is all about the failure of their starting pitching. It's irresistible because these are virtually the same pitchers who led San Francisco to World Championships in 2010 and 2012. But with 105 baseball games yet to be played I think the jury should still be deliberating, especially...

Melky Cabrera returns to San Fran with Blue Jays

Melky Cabrera wants everyone to know just how sorry he is. Sorry for cheating, sorry for lying, sorry for letting down the San Francisco Giants and their supportive city. Cabrera returned to AT&T Park with Toronto on Tuesday night for the first time since receiving a 50-game suspension last Aug. 15 following a positive testosterone test. Calling last season's penalty &...

Minor League Manager gets Suspended for Sitting on Field After Ejection (Video)

  Marty Brown, the manager of the Toronto Blue Jays Triple-A team the Buffalo Bisons, has been suspended for three games following a tirade that will make a 5-year-old proud. During a game on Sunday against the Norfolk Tides, Brown marched onto the field after the umpires refused to make an interference call on a base runner who clearly impeded Bisons second baseman Jim Negrych...

Blue Jays 4, Giants 0

R.A. Dickey allowed two hits in 8 1-3 innings and sparked a four-run fifth inning with an RBI double that led the Toronto Blue Jays to a 4-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday. Mark DeRosa added a two-run single for Toronto and Adam Lind had three hits for his eighth multihit game in the past 12 contests to help the Blue Jays earn a split of this two-game series...

Postgame Wrap: Timmy Baffles, Torres Avenges

Revenge is a dish best served at 61 degrees, partly cloudy. After the shellacking that the Giants received in Toronto, this series had to start off the right way. The Giants fell in Toronto due to awful defense, poor pitching, and some R.A. Dickulously terrible hitting. Today, the Blue Jays lost because they couldn’t field the ball, Freaky pitching, and because the Giants never...
