San Francisco may be a laid back kind of place, but, well, this is ridiculous. The Giants and Nationals played a matinee game on Wednesday at AT&T park under the California sun, and during the ninth inning of the contest one fan made the catch of his life. Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford fouled a pitch off to the left, into the lower bowl of the stands. The fan, holding his young son with one arm, reached out with the other and snagged the foul ball on the fly. Just like catching a baseball, the preferred method of holding a baby is two hands. Nonetheless, check out this Giants fan show some great hands in the video below. Your browser does not support iframes.

SF Giants Rumors: Cain, Blanco, Sandoval, Scutaro, Etc.

Last night was the pitching duel that everyone expected with Matt Cain (after his rocky 1st inning) on the mound against Stephen Strasburg. Both guys did their job to give their team a chance to win, and the San Francisco Giants needed some ninth inning magic to tie the game. Blanco Payback Outfielder Gregor Blanco and the Giants were down to the last strike when Blanco hit a triple...

Down on the Farm: Michael Kickham

“You always set high goals. That’s one thing I certainly do. I’m not getting ahead of myself by any means, but sure, it is something that you think about and dream about.” That was Michael Kickham‘s response during the 2012 NLCS when asked if he had mentally projected himself experiencing playoff baseball in the big leagues in 2013 or 2014. Given Ryan Vogelsong‘s injury...

Casilla has made just two appearances since May 8 after a cyst was discovered in his knee.

Marco Scutaro on Contact

“I’m probably leading the league in bad contact, too.” — Marco Scutaro We talked for a few minutes, Marco Scutaro and I, about hitting and contact before a game a few weeks back. When I told him he’s leading the league in contact rate since 2010, he offered the response above with a slight frown and a flick of the bat. He swung a bat the whole time we talked, even. But...

POSTGAME RECAP: Django Uncained

Everybody predicted that Game One of the 2010 World Series would be one for the record books. Two-time Cy Young Award Winner Tim Lincecum was going up against Cliff Lee, a man eight feet tall with flaming red hair, with an arm made mostly of titanium who had yet to give up a run in his entire playing career.  Lincecum, a man of slight build and a back just four pitches away from...

No Clear Replacement For Vogelsong

I’m beginning to think that this just isn’t Ryan Vogelsong’s year. Even when he pitches well, it’s a letdown. On Monday night, Vogelsong pitched what was easily his best game of the season, tossing five shutout innings against the powerful Washington Nationals. As he was cruising right along, though, tragedy struck. While swinging at a pitch in the bottom of the fifth inning...

After the game, Sandoval admitted that he wasn’t feeling well and received IV treatments before the...

Giants Lose Pitchers’ Duel to Harper and the Nats

It was a good old fashioned pitchers’ duel between Madison Bumgarner and Gio Gonzalez Wednesday afternoon at AT&T Park, as both south paws were in control on the mound. Nine innings weren’t enough to decide the game, as the Giants bullpen eventually succumbed to the Nationals in the tenth inning of a 2-1 defeat. “It’s a tough loss today, but you have to be encouraged...
