San Francisco Giants: 5 Trade Proposals That Will Provide Instant Help

It’s fair to say that the San Francisco Giants may not be playing like the 2012 World Series Champions that they are.  Currently with a win-loss record of 39-44, good for 5th in the horrible NL West division, the Giants find themselves at a point in the season where it’s gut check time.  Do you rise above and finish strong, or do you continue down a path that leads to a flame...

Buster Posey portrait made of LEGO

A Buster Posey portrait? Sounds kinda boring. But a Buster Posey portrait made out of LEGO bricks? Now it’s exciting (even if only for the potential risk of total disaster)! With the Giants playing a series in nearby Cincinnati the catcher had a chance to come face to face with the artsy LEGO version of himself on Tuesday. It’s normally on display at the Louisville Slugger Museum...

Madison Bumgarner halts the San Francisco Giants’ six game slide

  The 2013 San Francisco Giants have had their share of ups, but more often than not, their downs. This year has been a far cry from the magical 2012 season that culminated in a World Series Championship. Prior to the Sunday finale against the Colorado Rockies, the Giants had lost a season high six straight games. This has been the club’s longest losing streak since 2010.   Saturday...

Four Myths About Why the Giants Have Stumbled in 2013

Make no mistake about it. There isn't a team in the National League West that believes the 2013 San Francisco Giants are toast. Or even partially broasted . That would include the three teams ahead of the 4th place 39-43 Giants in the NL West standings (Arizona, Colorado, and San Diego), as well as the rejuvenated and surging last place LA Dodgers. And that's a very...

Giants' Ryan Vogelsong throws for the first time since injury

The San Francisco Giants are struggling.  They are just three games back in the National League West, but they are four games under .500.  They just got blown out by the Reds in a rain-shortened game.  The team needs some good news, and they got it yesterday.  Ryan Vogelsong took a major step forward in his recovery. Chris Haft of MLB.com says Vogelsong threw yesterday for...

Giants move LH Mike Kickham to bullpen

Left-hander Mike Kickham will pitch out of the Giants' bullpen for now. San Francisco moved the rookie out of the rotation on Tuesday, a day after he had another rough outing. Kickham lasted only 2 2-3 innings in an 8-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds, allowing seven runs. Kickham lost all three of his starts since he was called up to replace the injured Chad Gaudin on June 24...

Reds, Giants both struggling

The San Francisco Giants' run to last year's World Series title nearly ended in the division series until they swept their road games against the Cincinnati Reds. The Giants will have a more modest goal when they return to Great American Ball Park. San Francisco will try to turn around what's so far been a miserable road trip while Cincinnati will seek to bounce back...

Buster Posey Wins National League Player of the Week

After getting swept by the Dodgers and losing two out of three to the Colorado Rockies this past week, the San Francisco Giants were in desperate need of some good news. Luckily, their MVP catcher was around to provide a silver lining to a team that needed any lift it could get. Buster Posey was named the National League Player of the Week for the week ending on Sunday, June 30....

Please Let This Be Rock Bottom

Okay, maybe this isn’t as far as a team could sink…  Sure, the Giants aren’t in contention for the number 1 overall pick in the draft next year. They’re only 3 games back in what I will gently call a competitive division. They are mostly the same team that won a World Series last year, albeit with a couple of injury problems.  More, it’s a lot of players playing under...

Video: Brandon Phillips starts unusual double play

Your browser does not support iframes. Brandon Phillips is known to be one of the slickest fielders in baseball. On Wednesday, he reminded us all of why this is true. During the third inning, the three-time Gold Glove second basemen initiated one of the most unusual double plays you are likely to see this season when he let a pop-up hit by Giants hitter Hunter Pence fall to...

A Few Words on All-Star Ballot Box Stuffing (Would MLB Allow Eight Giants as Starters?)

(Image: Morry Gash/Associated Press) As of this writing, Troy Tulowitzki has a commanding lead in All-Star Game voting at NL shortstop.  Since Tulo is on the disabled list, it appears likely the starting job will go to the second-place candidate, San Francisco’s Brandon Crawford.  Brewers shortstop Jean Segura is a relatively close third, so it’s conceivable (albeit unlikely...

White Sox rumors: Alex Rios' no-trade list

Chicago White Sox outfielder Alex Rios is being talked about as a potential trade target for some teams. While those teams are interested in Rios, he may not be interested in them. According to a report from Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune, Alex Rios has the Astros, Athletics, Diamondbacks, Rockies, Royals and Yankees on his no-trade list. While no deal appears imminent...

Bumgarner, Posey, and Pence give Giants a much-needed win

Madison Bumgarner went seven strong innings, and Buster Posey homered (again) to give the Giants a much-needed 5-2 win over the Colorado Rockies. For the first time in the series, San Francisco got on the board first. For the second time in the series, Posey went deep, this time launching his 12th homerun of the season to left field to give the Giants a 1-0 lead in the third. But...

MLB Trade Rumors: Alex Rios and Matt Garza Are on the Giants Radar

Following a disappointing stretch that has seen the Giants below .500, and go just 2-8 in their most recent ten-game stretch, Brian Sabean is reportedly already looking to the trade market to assess what players he may be able to acquire to help right the ship in San Francisco as they try to defend their 2012 World Series Championship. The Giants are arguably in need of a pitcher...

The Giants will have a more modest goal when they return to Great American Ball Park. San Francisco will try to turn around what's so far been a miserable road trip while Cincinnati will seek to bounce back...
