A Toast To Lincecum

First of all…Tim Lincecum, I want to say Congratulations…and Thank You.  I know that the relationship between you and the fans hasn’t been so clean the last couple of seasons, but we are still rooting for you, and we appreciate that you are still working on your art and craft, and doing it so that Giants fans can appreciate it, rather than some who don’t, and wait until...

San Francisco Giants – Mid-Season Report Card

Team:  San Francisco Giants Record: 43-51 (6.5 GB) Biggest Surprise of 1st Half: The biggest surprise of the 1st half is obviously how poorly the Giants have played the past couple of months, playing themselves out of 1st place and into 4th in the NL West division.  But if I had to choose a player, it would be Giants second basemen Marco Scutaro.  Since being traded to the Giants...

San Francisco Giants: Tim Lincecum reestablishes former dominance with no-hitter

All-Star giveaway: Win a copy of San Francisco Giants World Series Champions Collector’s Set

Ok, Lunatic Fringe. You want World Series DVDs. Trust me, Danny and I love popping in the 2010 disks, switching the audio to Kruk & Kuip and reliving the best October either of us can remember. You want to see Pablo Sandoval hit three home runs against one of the best pitchers in the game and a guy who sounds like a joke in a Bugs Bunny cartoon. And it’s all right here. MLB...

San Francisco Designates Chris Heston For Assignment

Right-handed starter Chris Heston has been designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for outfielder Jeff Francoeur. Heston, who was struggling mightily at the AAA level, had a 5.80 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 19 starts. To keep Heston in the organization, he will have to clear waivers. Something that appears likely given his struggles. The post San Francisco Designates...

Tim Lincecum's No-Hitter Gives Giant Management A Rare Opportunity

When the San Francisco Giants won two games in a row last week against the struggling San Diego Padres, a glimmer of hope seemed to appear amid the nightmare of the 2013 season. Then San Francisco Giants starter Tim Lincecum threw the 15th no hitter in Giants' franchise history Saturday against the Padres and fans flooded the local sports talk radio airwaves with the news...

Hot or Not: Aces stay hot, bats get cold

Madison Bumgarner – Hot This was an easy choice for the hottest player on the Giants. Why? Well, the team is playing awful right now. So finding a player playing well is easy in a sea of terrible. In a stretch where the Giants are 5 – 14, Bumgarner is the reason for three of those wins, shutting down the Rockies, Dodgers and Padres. In fact, in his last six starts, Bumgarner...

What You Need to Know: The Lincecum Before the Storm by Daniel Rathman

Tim Lincecum`s no-hitter was a great moment for Giants fans, but it didn`t make Brian Sabean`s job any easier.

Zito, Bullpen Undone by Padres, Drop Finale 10-1

Three straight wins including a no-hitter isn’t too shabby for the defending World Champions, however a four game sweep of the Padres was not to be. Sunday afternoon was less than favorable for starter Barry Zito as he allowed four runs in two plus innings as well as three home runs. The Padres got some measure of revenge for Lincecum’s no hitter on Saturday, tattooing Giants...

The Shameful Melancholy of Tim Lincecum's No-Hitter

Despite Brian Kenny's protestations, a no-hitter is still an event to get excited about, like Christmas morning even after you know Santa Claus isn't coming. The combination of talent meeting luck, as an entire team is stymied by the pitcher and nine men who, for one day, are positioned in just the right way so no hard liners, bloop singles, or slow rollers can find safe...

Tigers could be interested in San Francisco’s Tim Lincecum

The Tigers’ bullpen has been serviceable as of late with Joaquin Benoit taking over the closers role while Drew Smyly has been murdering left handed hitters while taking on the 7th and 8th innings. The jury is still out on Bruce Rondon and whether or not he’ll eventually come around but despite things being somewhat quiet for the Tigers in terms of the bullpen there’s still...
