San Francisco Giants
Los Angeles Dodgers
Well, it's been a few games now, and we've gotten to know our 2013 Giants a little better. Sure, they're almost the same team as last year, but every year is different. Guys get better, guys regress, and you just never know how things will shake out. Here's what I've seen so far:
-- Starting pitching has been a little up and down. Cain had one great start against LA, then gave up a historic 9 ER against St. Louis. Timmy won a game while walking 7. Bumgarner was a monster against the Dodgers and was a little shaky against Colorado. Vogelsong got lit up pretty badly.
The only guy with an unblemished statline thus far is Barry Zito, who apparently now owns the Cardinals. Let's hope this dominant Zito sticks around all year.
...Speaking of the Cardinals and our home opening series...
-- They got a little revenge for last season's NLCS. Believe me, these fans and that team are still bitter at their collapse, and they immediately got subjected to a three ga...

ONE SIZE FITS ALL
Very few of us have seen a championship ring in person. We hear how the championship rings that professional athletes receive cost thousands of dollars, but it’s hard to truly understand how massive they are. San Francisco Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford posted a photo on Twitter Sunday night that should help put it into perspective. As you can see, Crawford put his Giants World...
San Francisco Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford proudly displayed his World Series ring - on his 4-month-old daughter's fingers - with a photo he posted on Twitter this past Sunday. The photo really puts into perspective how big a World Series ring is...and how small a baby's fingers are.
The caption with Crawford's photo: "Braylyn showing off some new bling...
Ever wanted to see a World Series ring on the fingers of an infant?
Thanks to San Francisco Giants infielder Brandon Crawford, we now have that image for the life of the Internet.
Crawford posted the photo to his Twitter page on Sunday and the ring is so massive that is covers two of his four-month-old daughter, Braylyn:

It was Buster Posey Day on Saturday at AT&T Park as the San Francisco Giants honored their best post-Bonds player. It was a day where he was officially given his 2012 Most Valuable Player Award, joined by past Giant MVPs Jeff Kent, Kevin Mitchell, Willie McCovey and the GOAT Willie Mays, the pageantry was on [...]The post Buster Posey Doesn’t Need Your Spotlight…Dammit appeared...

The Giants are playing good baseball against some decent teams.
The Dodgers, Cardinals and Rockies all have had good starts to the season and the Giants have hung in there. I’m not quite sure how.
Starting pitching has been weird – for the most part. Jonathan Sanch- I mean, Tim Lincecum wins his first start despite walking seven guys and Matt Cain allows nine runs...
Buster Posey drove in three runs with NBA star Kevin Durant cheering him from the stands, Barry Zito pitched another gem and the San Francisco Giants completed a sweep of the Colorado Rockies with a 10-0 win Wednesday.
Staked to a quick lead, Zito (2-0) won his 11th straight decision, including last postseason. San Francisco earned its 16th consecutive victory in games he started...
Angel Pagan hit a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning to cap San Francisco's rally from a four-run deficit and the Giants went on to beat the Colorado Rockies for the eighth straight time, 9-6 on Tuesday night.
Brandon Crawford hit a three-run homer to start the comeback and Hunter Pence had a pair of RBI singles for the Giants, who have won the first two games of the series...
The San Francisco Giants have started to pick up steam thanks to an impressive performance at the plate.
While they may need to battle the elements, a visit to Wrigley Field isn't likely to cool them off.
Seeking a fourth consecutive win, the Giants look to continue their recent success against the Chicago Cubs as these teams open a four-game set Thursday afternoon.

It was a nice hot day in San Francisco as the San Francisco Giants put an old fashion whooping on the Rockies (10-0) to sweep the series. Barry Zito tossed 7 innings of shutout ball, and hasn’t allowed a single run on the season. Is it too early to start the Cy Young Award campaign? Zito didn’t just do it with his arm. He also racked...
