Found August 13, 2012 on Baseball Prospectus:
During Friday's Rockies/Giants game in San Francisco, a rather memorable visitor appeared in McCovey Cove: Your browser does not support iframes. That's right. A Delorean hovercraft was out making waves during Tim Lincecum's start Friday night. Let's just say fans at the game that night aren't going to forget it anytime soon. Monday afternoon, these tweets showed up: Yes time travel is possible. Will explain later. — Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) August 13, 2012 And: Call me the modern day doc emmit brown. Stay tuned. — Jose Canseco (@JoseCanseco) August 13, 2012 Coincidence? I think not.

Buster Posey and the Plate Appearance of the Season

Fast-forward to the eighth inning. Buster Posey is up. The bases are loaded, with one out. The Giants are down by one run. The game is essentially in Posey’s hands. The leverage index (LI) of the situation is 7.59, the second-highest it’s been for any Giants batter at any point this season. And Rafael Betancourt, who has held right-handed hitters to a .196 wOBA this season, is...

Brandon Belt Gets Hot

After a pretty dismal July, Brandon Belt has put together a very nice start to August. In August only Buster Posey and Chase Headley have better wRC+ in the NL than Belt's 219 (before tonight's game). Tonight he had to his hot month with three hits and three RBI. Even this undersells what he did tonight with two homers missed by mere feet. His adventures on the base...

Giants activate Sandoval from DL

The San Francisco Giants activated third baseman Pablo Sandoval from the disabled list before Monday's game against the Nationals, but Sandoval was not in Monday's starting lineup. Manager Bruce Bochy had said earlier that Sandoval would not start Monday's game, but he is expected to be back in the lineup Tuesday and Wednesday. "I wasn't going to start him...

Buster Posey - MVP candidate

The race for the Most Valuable Player is a lot like a singing contest. It doesn't really matter much how the song starts, but how it finishes. And while most agree that if the season were to end right now, a certain Mr. McCutchen of the Pirates would probably get the nod. The season is not over yet. With a little more than a month and a half to go, Buster Posey has more than...

Wezen-Ball: The Giants' Shark Killer by Larry Granillo

The 1958 San Francisco Giants, in their first year on the west coast, finished in third place, twelve games behind the defending World Champions (and eventual World Series losers) Milwaukee Braves. Their 80-74 record was the best the club had managed in four years. The race for the pennant wasn't always so one-sided, however. In mid-July, the National League was wide-open. For...

SF Giants Rumors: Series Win, Posey, Pence and Cabrera

The San Francisco Giants were able to get the win Sunday to secure the series win against the Rockies. The G-men have won 7 of their last 10 games.   Buster Posey (.332 AVG ) had the biggest at bat of the game. Which resulted in a 10 pitch battle, and a sacrifice fly that tied the game in the bottom of the 8th inning. Hunter Pence followed that up with his first homer in a Giants...

Awesome DeLorean "Boat" at the San Francisco Giants game

Either James Bond or Marty McFly was navigating through McCovey Cove outside at AT&T Park in San Francisco on Friday.

Giants 6, Nationals 1

Madison Bumgarner pitched a five-hitter and Brandon Belt had three hits and three RBIs, leading the San Francisco Giants to a 6-1 win over the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night in a matchup between NL division leaders.

Giants 9, Rockies 6

Hunter Pence hit a three-run homer during a five-run rally in the eighth inning that lifted the San Francisco Giants over the Colorado Rockies 9-6 on Sunday. Buster Posey's sacrifice fly in the eighth tied it. Melky Cabrera, who had an RBI single in the comeback, drove in three runs. Brandon Belt doubled twice and went 4 for 4 for the Giants. Matt Belisle (3-4) took the loss...

Jose Canseco finally loses his mind (OK, maybe he did awhile ago)

We couldn't pass this story up, mostly because Jose Canseco was once a promising Major League Baseball player and has somehow devolved into a bizarre, desperate for attention, whack job. And there is a reason we say this. Jose Canseco Jose, or at least somebody pretending to be him, appears to have written an article for a magazine called Again, we have...

Nationals-Giants Preview

Striving to hold their respective division leads, the San Francisco Giants and Washington Nationals can both use any wins they can get. The Giants might get a boost Monday with All-Star third baseman Pablo Sandoval set to come off the disabled list before the opener of a three-game set against the visiting Nationals. San Francisco (63-52) heads into this series holding a one-game...
