“I’m probably leading the league in bad contact, too.” — Marco Scutaro We talked for a few minutes, Marco Scutaro and I, about hitting and contact before a game a few weeks back.

Pagan hits walkoff inside the park home run

Down on the Farm: Michael Kickham

“You always set high goals. That’s one thing I certainly do. I’m not getting ahead of myself by any means, but sure, it is something that you think about and dream about.” That was Michael Kickham‘s response during the 2012 NLCS when asked if he had mentally projected himself experiencing playoff baseball in the big leagues in 2013 or 2014. Given Ryan Vogelsong‘s injury...

Postgame Wrap: Lincecum Bad, Giants Worse

These days, it’s almost more confusing when Tim Lincecum succeeds than when he screws up. If there’s one thing we’ve learned by watching Barry Zito’s ascent to mediocrity these past couple of years it’s that when Zito’s breaking pitches are working, even a lineup of the best and brightest can’t catch up to an 84 mph. If Zito can establish the ridiculous curveball and...

Giants Fan Catches Foul Ball While Holding Baby at AT&T Park (Video)

San Francisco may be a laid back kind of place, but, well, this is ridiculous. The Giants and Nationals played a matinee game on Wednesday at AT&T park under the California sun, and during the ninth inning of the contest one fan made the catch of his life.

San Francisco Giants reliever Santiago Casilla has been dealing with a cyst in his knee for some time, but now it sounds as though he may actually undergo surgery to deal with the problem.

Surgery needed for Santiago Casilla?

Bruce Bochy said on Friday injured reliever Santiago Casilla, the pitcher formerly known as Jairo Garcia, might have to undergo surgery.

Lincecum Fails to Deliver While Giants Silenced

The San Francisco Giants were awfully quiet this Friday night against one of their division rivals, the Colorado Rockies, dropping game one of the weekend series 5-0.

Lincecum surrendered two quick runs in the first inning on a two out double off the bat of Michael Cuddyer...

SF Giants Rumors: Cain, Blanco, Sandoval, Scutaro, Etc.

Last night was the pitching duel that everyone expected with Matt Cain (after his rocky 1st inning) on the mound against Stephen Strasburg. Both guys did their job to give their team a chance to win, and the San Francisco Giants needed some ninth inning magic to tie the game.
