Pablo Sandoval is the reigning World Series MVP. What will he do to your fantasy team in 2013? Photo courtesy of Flickr user Redwood Coast. Ladies and gentlemen, I am stumped. I have followed his whole career extremely closely and am still pretty stumped. What can we expect from Pablo Sandoval, the reigning World Series [...]

Free agent reliever and fan favorite Brian Wilson has completed his long-toss program and will be throwing off a mound soon, reports Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Schulman points out that the San Francisco Giants are still willing to discuss a contract with Wilson, but it would be in Wilson’s best interest to hold off signing with the Giants or any team at this...
NO CLASS OF '13
Former Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine lit into the baseball writers for failing to elect any players into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
“C’mon guys, offer me a contract… please?”
It is January 12, 2013 and Brian Wilson does not have a contract to any MLB team.
Two years ago, that statement would sound like ridiculous mumbo jumbo. Nowadays, the Giants and the rest of the league are hesitant to give the All-Star closer a look.
After rehabbing from his second career Tommy John surgery last year, Wilson has...
Our final installment about Barry Bonds, and why he should, eventually, get into the Hall of Fame.
I think it’s a little ridiculous that no one got voted in this year. It was one of the most amazing ballots in years, steroids or not, and no one got in. But this may be just the shock the Hall of Fame needs to do something about this and change things, or give a clearer direction...
We’re on Island time T…
The former San Francisco Giants star and alleged Steroid monger has been spotted hanging around Maui this week with a special someone. The news came crashing in yesterday that Bonds and several others failed to make the Hall of Fame cut. We all knew this day would come.

Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com reports (via Twitter) that the San Francisco Giants have signed 25-year-old reliever Mason Tobin to a minor league deal. Tobin will get an invite to Spring Training. He only has 4 games under his big league belt, and that’s from 2011 with the Texas Rangers. Tobin missed all of 2012, after having Tommy John surgery.
Don’t forget to go to the...
When we looked at the top twenty fantasy second basemen we discovered that the crop was pretty weak. That means the same will also be true of the free agent crop of second baseman. Most of the prominent second basemen have been signed, but there are still a few left on the open market. There might not be any starting quality guys (depending on who you ask) but they could be valuable...

I was reading an article on Yahoo! Sports questioning if the Giants had enough offensive firepower to be successful again. You can read the article here, but let me summarize it for you: the Giants were lucky twice and they will be bad like they were in 2011 because they only have Pablo Sandoval and Buster Posey hitting home runs.
Honestly, I completely...
