Posted June 06, 2012 on AP on Fox
A woman who saw part of a brutal attack on a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium has made the first eyewitness identification in court of two defendants charged in the case. Mary Dolores Donely was at the 2011 Opening Day game with family members. She recalled Thursday that she heard profanity and a scuffle before she and her husband ran toward the trouble. She testified that she heard victim Bryan Stow's head hit the ground with a crack and then saw a man she identified as Louie Sanchez kick him in the head and attempt to punch him. In court, she pointed to Sanchez as the assailant and identified co-defendant Marvin Norwood as the cohort who left the scene with him. The men have pleaded not guilty.

SF Giants Rumors: Sergio Romo On Pace For Future Arm Troubles

  Picture is courtesy of Marko Realmonte. Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says (via Twitter) Sergio Romo is throwing sliders 61% of the time and fastballs 31%. Last year Romo threw 54% sliders and 44% fastballs.   The slider is a very hard pitch on the elbow. Romo could be setting himself up for some arm trouble in the future. That’s a lot of stress on the elbow...

Postgame Wrap: A Tale of Two Timmys

Tim Lincecum had trouble out of the stretch tonight. The story tonight is Tim Lincecum. Wait, let me try that again. The stories tonight are Tim Lincecums. Lincecum looked pretty bad today, but he looked great tonight. After giving up loud contact in the first, Timmy surrendered four runs on four hits (single, 2 doubles, home run) and a walk, and looked like he wasn’t fooling anybody...

Second Freak Injury Recharges Affeldt’s Season

Jeremy Affeldt is left-handed relief pitcher for the San Francisco Giants. Some, including me, have referred to him as a LOOGY (Lefty One-Out GuY) over the years, but that’s not entirely the case. This is Affeldt’s fourth season with the Giants, his eleventh overall in the majors. The only season with the Giants in which he’s been more effective against left-handed batters...

Emergency Bullpen Action

The Giants bullpen has been a strength since Armando Benitez was exorcised.  It had moments of doubt here and there, sure.  But it’s been strength. This is probably just one of those moments.  But geeze, this thing doesn’t look good. It kills me to say that about Steve Edlefsen.  I like him.  A lot.  He had been a consistent ground ball machine.  That slider wasn’t...

SF Giants Rumors: What You Need To Know About The Giants 1st Round Pick

With their 1st round pick (20th overall) in the 2012 MLB Draft. The San Francisco Giants have selected pitcher Chris Stratton out of Mississippi State.   Stratton went 11-2 with a 2.38 ERA (17 games) this season, and was named the SEC’s pitcher of the year. He struck out 127 in 109.2 innings pitched. Stratton has a fastball that ranges from 90-95 mph, curveball, slider and a changeup...

Lincecum just can't avoid that one bad inning

This one-bad-inning stuff has got to end. Tim Lincecum had one bad inning Tuesday night. This is not a recording. He gave up four runs in the second inning. Otherwise, he retired 15 of 16 batters he faced. He struck out eight. Walked one. The second inning killed him. One bad inning. Again. "I'm finally crawling out of it, making the right push in the right direction...

Giants' Cain ignores errors to beat Padres

SAN DIEGO -- Four errors by teammates might spell doom for most pitchers. Matt Cain isn't like most pitchers, though, as the San Francisco Giants ace again showed on Thursday en route to his sixth win in a row. Cain struck out nine in seven innings without allowing an earned run, and Buster Posey, Angel Pagan and Gregor Blanco homered as the Giants beat the San Diego Padres...

Postgame Wrap: P-P-P-Petco Power!

Bye, bye baby. Coming into the series the Giants had a season total of 31 home runs, good enough for 29th in the league. 30Th? The Padres, of course, with 30. So color me surprised when the Giants go to Petco and score 5,6, and 8 runs on 13, 11, 15 hits, respectively. And a diminutive non-roster spring training invitee who had two home runs in 836 career plate appearances has two...

Pitcher Profile: Ryan Vogelsong Deserves More Love

Where in the world did Ryan Vogelsong come from?  No, no, I don’t want the birds and the bees, the stork, or the miracle of life answer (at least, definitely not the latter). After a five-year absence from the majors, Vogelsong had a huge season in 2011, going 13-7 with a 2.71 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and a 6.96 K per 9.  He allowed over three earned runs in only three outings.  And while...

Giants 6, Padres 5

Gregor Blanco homered and scored twice and Madison Bumgarner prevailed in a matchup of lefties as the San Francisco Giants beat the San Diego Padres 6-5 on Wednesday. The Giants have won eight of 10 overall and 14 of their last 19 against the Padres, who have the worst record in the majors. Bumgarner (7-4) won his second straight start while Clayton Richard (2-7) lost for the second...

Streamers Of The Day

Here are some starting pitchers that can help you out with a spot start.  Barry Zito - I know, I know, it’s not 2005. But Barry Zito is 5-2 with a 2.98 ERA and a WHIP of 1.25. He may not be striking many people out (39 in 66.1 innings) but he’s giving quality starts on a regular basis and when it comes to a one day streamer – that’s what you’re looking for. Just try...

Stratt-O-Matic

This is the first time in nearly a decade that I haven’t spent this week covering the draft.  I’d spend the entire time sitting with former SFDugout co-writer Chris Martinez (who now writes for milb.com and baycityball.com) and occasionally others listening to names, and then furiously googling and calling and getting every scrap of information possible about every player...
