Spring training recap—Day 9

It was a milestone day for Giants catcher Buster Posey, who hit live pitching for the first time since May 25, 2011. I don’t need to remind you what happened on that crappy day. Today, on the other hand, was glorious. Posey stood in the batter’s box as Jeremy Affeldt stood on the mound waiting for the Giants catcher to get set. On Affeldt’s first pitch, Posey grounded one to...

Since Edgardo Alfonzo and Pedro Feliz manned the position from 2003 through 2007, the Giants have had little offensive power coming from the “hot-corner”. After Feliz hit 22, 20, 22 and 20 home runs from the 2004 to 2007  seasons respectively and Alfonzo hitting 13 and 11 home runs in 2003 and 2004, the...

Aubrey Huff, he's just back in shape.

While Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain appear destined for $100 million contracts, it might be unwise for the Giants to sign either to a nine-figure deal. Historically speaking, that is. The success rate of $100 million...

Confident Wilson declares he's over injuries

A subdued Brian Wilson began Spring Training by admitting that he pitched with a sore throwing elbow and a bad hip through much of last season. Monday, a rejuvenated Wilson sounded much more like the prescient, confident, eloquent Giants closer from two years ago who hadn't yet grown his feared beard.
