The Crazy Crabbers:
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. Many expected him to make it to the majors quickly and become the team’s center fielder of both the present and future.

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com says San Francisco Giants GM Brian Sabean can guarantee that Hunter Pence will be with the Giants in 2013. However, Sabean can’t make the same guarantee for Brian Wilson. “Pence is going to be coming back,” said Sabean. “We think there are some things he can do to fix what went wrong this year. We like the player. We made a big trade to get him...
Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com says (via Twitter) the San Francisco Giants have been receiving calls from teams inquiring about Brandon Belt. They don’t seem inclined to trade Belt, and say their goals are to re-sign Angel Pagan, Marco Scutaro and try to retain Jeremy Affeldt.
Bob Nightengale of USA Today says (via Twitter) the Giants are confident they will be able to resign...
With the World Series win still fresh on most fans minds. It’s now time for the San Francisco Giants front office to start focusing on 2013.
It’s going to be a big decision for them to decide if Brian Wilson should be offered arbitration or non-tender him. Wilson made $8.5 million in 2012. The Giants could be considering a deal that doesn’t guarantee as much for 2013 but...
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.
CBS San Francisco reports that 37-year-old Sean Moffitt has passed away, due to injuries he suffered during Giants fans’ celebration of last week’s world championship. Giants fans took to the streets following the decisive...
The 2012 Giants were a farm-grown team, loaded with talent drafted and cultivated by the organization, and poised to be perennial playoff contenders.
I’m a firm believer that a championship team cannot be purchased through free agency or assembled through mega-deal trades. Baseball is unique in that it is equally an individual performance sport as well as it’s a team sport. Chemistry...
Congratulations to Giants’ catcher Buster Posey for earning a 2012 Silver Slugger Award.
His .336 batting average landed him the National League batting title, as well.
This Silver Slugger award is, presumed by many, just a prelude to winning the 2012 National League Most Valuable Player award; which is expected to be announced next week.
Posey’s accomplishments this year are...
Although the World Series is behind us, that doesn't mean there is a shortage of musical tributes done by San Francisco Giants fans.
In case you forgot, singer Ashkon became a viral sensation in 2010 for his remaking of "Don't Stop Believing" for the Giants World Series run against the Texas Rangers.
Now, here is his 2012 version using "We Are the Champions...
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...
Do you see random sh$% while driving to work and think it needs to be seen by the masses? Does the guy who sits next to you at work look like a tool on a daily basis? Does your dog lick his balls in an odd fashion? Is your neighbor working on some sort of outer space vehicle behind his shed? We want your WTF photos.

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...
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.
Everyone knows of Miguel Cabrera‘s exploits in winning the first Triple Crown in 45 year, and likewise everyone knows that potent bat was absent in a World Series loss to the San Francisco Giants...
