The first two games of the Cincinnati series were quite frustrating for the Giants this past week.
After Cain threw six and a third innings allowing just three runs, five hits (including two home runs) and seven strikeouts, relief pitcher Dan Otero finished the game in what some would call a “train wreck.”
Otero gave up six runs off of six hits in only one and two thirds innings of work, paving the way for a Reds nine to nothing lead over the Giants. The only bright spots for the Giants in that game was Pablo Sandoval extending his hitting streak to 17 games, and Buster Posey homering in the ninth inning to give the Giants a couple pity runs.
The next game was far...

Forget bobbleheads. The San Francisco Giants are stepping up with giveaway game with Pablo Sandoval Chia Pets that they will be giving young fans at an upcoming game on May 16. How cool is that? Answer: pretty cool. The team has apparently partnered with the makers of Chia Pets to create a bust of their third baseman's head that grows grass instead of hair. To promote the game...
San Francisco Giants first baseman-outfielder Aubrey Huff released a statement on Friday addressing his stint on the disabled list for anxiety. Huff was placed on the 15-day DL on Wednesday to deal with an anxiety attack he had earlier in the week. "Thank you to the fans, media and Giants organization for the outpouring of support during this very difficult week," Huff...
Aubrey Huff rejoined the San Francisco Giants after being placed on the 15-day disabled list for anxiety disorder.
Huff released the following statement toCSNBayArea.com:
“Thank you to the fans, media and Giants organization for the outpouring of support during this very difficult week. I’m especially grateful for the texts and calls from my teammates, who are like my brothers...
John McInroe would definitely give this a “you cannot be serious!” But the San Francisco Giants are as serious as a heart attack. Pablo Sandoval Chia Pets. May 16th. If this doesn’t sell out AT&T Park, nothing ever will.
This has to be the greatest and weirdest and sickest and coolest stadium giveaway ever. A Kung Fu Panda Chia Pet?! YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!
On some day late in Spring or early in the regular season (sooooo lazy), Julian (@GiantsNirvana) tweeted something that looked like this:
“On a scale of 1-10, the amount I’m worried about Angel Pagan: 0”
Julian’s faith restored my own, reminding me that Angel Pagan has started slowly before and would be just fine as the Giants’ starting center fielder. Fine, indeed.
Well this was a game that had a little bit of everything. The Giants went down 2-0 early only to come back and score two runs of their own. Then they went down 4-2 and scratched and clawed to get back within one run. Then Scott Rolen, he of the sub-Mendoza Line batting average in late April homered for the second time in the series and things felt like they’d been Cincinnati’d...

The San Diego Padres placed outfielder Jeremy Hermida on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a strained left adductor and recalled outfielder Blake Tekotte from Triple-A Tucson. The DL move is retroactive to April 27. Hermida, 28, is hitting .250 (6-for-24) in 13 games this season. Tekotte, a third-round pick in 2008, made his major-league debut last year and appeared in 11 games.
San Diego Padres right-handed pitcher Micah Owings has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right forearm, the team announced Thursday. The team called up right-hander Dale Thayer from Triple-A Tucson to take his place on the roster. The club also moved right-handed pitcher Dustin Moseley to the 60-day disabled list after he underwent season-ending...

Cole Hamels is SUPPOSED to be one of the top free agents available at the end of this baseball season, but not if the San Diego Padres have anything to say about it. Upon Colbert Hamels' (Colbert!) birth, his mother, an employee of the Padres at the time, signed a LIFETIME contract for a robust $1 with the Padres then-head of marketing Andy Strasberg. Makes that $2M bonus Hamels...
Pinch-hitter Mark Kotsay's two-run double off reliever Tyler Clippard in the eighth inning lifted the San Diego Padres to a 2-1 victory over the Washington Nationals on Thursday night.
With the Padres trailing 1-0, Orlando Hudson drew a one-out walk and Cameron Maybin dropped down a bunt single against Clippard (1-2). Kotsay followed with a double to right-center to put San...
Yasmani Grandal hit a homer in his first plate appearance in three weeks to help set the tone for Tucson. Juan Oramas continues to struggle, digging a hole so deep even Nate Freiman can't climb out. Matt Jackson was dealing in Elsinore, while the TinCaps didn't give John much to watch.
It's no secret that the Padres have been awful this season. They have yet to win a series, the best they've done is tie with the Phillies. I do have to give them credit though, they have done a decent job at winning at least one game to avoid a sweep. Of the 6 series that we've played so far, only 1 has been a sweep. The other have been 2-1 losses (minus the tie). The...
Beemer Weems and Yasmani Grandal come back to help the realing T-Pads offense...score 1 run. Missions go to 13 innings. Storm put their week long winning streak on the line. Finally TinCaps get Hedges off the DL and put Frank Garces on the mound looking for a win.
