San Francisco Giants
It’s no secret that the San Francisco Giants are going to use free agency to try and improve their team. After all, they followed up a championship campaign with a third place finish, and they know they have to find a way to bounce back.
There’s no single thing that’s the key to regaining success in Major League Baseball. It takes a lot of things going right in order to win. For better and for worse, the Giants have a lot of areas in which they can improve, besides simply upgrading personnel. Here are five areas where the Giants can – and need to – improve, if they want to have a successful 2014 season.
The season was far from over when Bruce Bochy first proclaimed that the team would spend more time in the upcoming spring training working on their fielding. Despite the fact that the Giants set a franchise record for consecutive games without an error (16), they still finished with the third most errors in the National League (107), and the secon...
BEST OF MAXIM
Just yesterday we reported that the San Francisco Giants – led by General Manager Brian Sabean, star-turned-scout Pat Burrell, and special assistant (and former manager) Felipe Alou – were heavily scouting Cuban slugger Jose Abreu, the 26-year old corner infielder who just became available as an MLB free agent, and is testing American baseball’s waters for the first time.
The San Francisco Giants will spend a good chunk of the next few months looking for a way to upgrade their starting pitching. Retaining players, signing players, or trading for players, Brian Sabean and Co are willing to do whatever is necessary to increase the quality of their five man rotation.
Well, it appears that one of the best in the game will be available. Tampa Bay...
Top international talent Jose Abreu is being eyed by several major league teams but the Giants may be the favorite to land the Cuban slugger.
Sources say that San Francisco is the front runner to sign the 26-year-old first baseman according to Joe Frisario of MLB.com.
Giants GM Brian Sabean was spotted in the Dominican Republic scouting Abreu back in September.
Abreu is expected...
We hope you're enjoying the MLB playoffs; we sure are, even with the Giants being out of it. But the real excitement comes not when the World Series approaches, but when the World Series ends. That's when free agency heats up, and we Giants fans get to see who we land . . . and who we lose.
The Giants have 12 members of their 2013 team that are set to become free agents...
For just the second time in four years, the San Francisco Giants aren't playing baseball on October 7. Which makes it a pretty undramatic day, relatively speaking.
Yep, the Giants played on the seventh day of October in both of their recent playoff runs. And while both games ultimately led to a world series, the sentiment on that day was drastically different in each...

We love you, Hunter!
Firstly, I apologize for not writing much in the waning moments of the 2013 season. It just got too depressing, too frustrating, and the same issues were being discussed ad nauseum by every source and blog between here and Timbuktu (which is in Mali, in case you're wondering). Mali is the same place that "Would Be" Champions shirts get sent. Even they are discussing...
