The Crazy Crabbers:
I've been working on this list for far too long, I have gone back and forth on a number of guys but then I realized I am not a full time scout by any means and this is just for fun.
So here is my top 20 Giants prospects list:
For the most part I focused on poten...

The San Francisco Giants are so 2010.
Showtime is moving on to greener pastures after following the World Champs last season in its inaugural cable television docu-series, “The Franchise.”
On Tuesday, the network said that it plans to shoot a second season of its popular series with an announcement on which team will be in the Showtime spotlight coming as early as Thursday...
Chris Haft of MLB.com says catcher Buster Posey has added running to his workout regimen. Posey has mixed 30 and 60-yard sprints, agility drills and mild distance running into his routine three times per week since the new year began.
“Part of it is rehab for his ankle and part of it is normal conditioning to get ready for the season,” head athletic trainer Dave Groeschner...
According to an unconfirmed source, the San Francisco Giants have re-signed Triple-A starters Matt Yourkin and 2011 PCL All-Star Andrew Kown. Again, there’s no confirmation as of now. So take it for what it’s worth. But I wouldn’t be posting this if I wasn’t pretty confident about its accuracy.
So I have started working on my Giants top prospect list, and while doing so I have had a hard time ranking two third base prospects, Conor Gillaspie and Chris Dominguez.

Whether Freddy Sanchez can bounce back from an injury-shortened 2011 remains an open question. With Mike Fontenot and Emmanuel Burriss slotted in as primary backups, we wonder if the necessary depth is there.
The San Francisco Giants are hoping 2011 was the beginning of great things for veteran pitcher Ryan Vogelsong. After posting mediocre numbers that led to a three-year stint in Japan, the 34-year-old returned to the United States with a vengeance this past season, posting a 2.71 ERA in 179.2 innings. The Giants rewarded that performance on Wednesday and signed Vogelsong to a two-year...

Addressing both of their daunting to-do lists Wednesday, the Giants agreed to terms with right-hander Ryan Vogelsong on a two-year contract with a club option for 2014.
Ryan Vogelsong and the San Francisco Giants have agreed to a two-year contract worth approximately $8.3 million after he became one of the team's most reliable starters and an unlikely All-Star last season.
