Gary Brown is one of the Giants top prospects, and is the potential center fielder of the future. After destroying pitching in High A San Jose, he ran into a bit of a wall in AA Richmond.  This morning Baseball Prospectus has him as their prospect profile (for free!). It's a nice little glimpse into what has been going on with him if you haven't been following his goings on very closely. Here is the introduction: Fifteen months ago Gary Brown was viewed by many as an elite prospect, destined to lose Gold Gloves to inferior defenders and lead the Giants to the Promised Land. People were amazed that 23 players were selected before Brown in the 2010 draft. When teams would inquire on Brown, the Giants would show reluctance to part with him to shore up their club in the short term.

SF Giants Rumors: Wilson Decision Looms, Romo Stat, Whiteside Gone, Posey Award, Cabrera Money

San Francisco Giants fans got rowdy following their team’s World Series win over the Detroit Tigers, and at least one fan has lost his life in the aftermath.

It’s The Ultimate Reclamation Project

It’s the small moves that make a season and a team. I admit, when the Giants picked up Ryan Vogelsong, I thought it was to sell tickets in Fresno.  I was wrong. When the Giants found Pat Burrell on the scrap heap, I expected it to be a non-factor in anything.  Nope. Cody Ross?  It seemed like sacrificing a roster spot to stop a rival.  Well, not just. Marco Scutaro?  A fine...

Jeff Kent gets booted from Survivor, is a sore loser, mad at Barack Obama

I don't think I've seen an episode of Survivor since the days Elizabeth Hasselbeck wasn't a Hasselbeck.  That's been about 63 seasons ago and somehow the show is still around.  Evidently, former San Francisco Giants second basemen Jeff Kent was booted off the island last night and was none too pleased.  While you can watch the entire tribal council thingy here...

Melky Cabrera Still Reasonable Free-Agent Gamble Despite PED Implications

While one Cabrera was leading his team into the World Series, another was sitting on the sidelines, left off the playoff roster after a suspension for testing positive for testosterone.
