Hall of Very Good:
The San Francisco Giants have invited Brian Wilson to re-join the team April 7. Kinda.Before the World Champs hit the field Sunday to take on the St. Louis Cardinals, they will be presented with their 2012 World Series rings. And, well…they’d like the bearded one to be part of the celebration. According to Henry Schulman, the team’s senior vice president of communications said the club has asked Wilson to come, but has yet to receive an call back. Wilson, who pitched in just one game last season before having year-ending Tommy John surgery is currently a free agent. The Giants had hoped to resign the enigmatic closer, but not as the price tag he was demanding. He can currently be found living it up at Disneyland with Dallas Braden.

Opening Day has finally arrived and this is the day that all San Francisco Giants fans have been waiting for! Matt Cain will lead the Giants into Los Angeles against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers.
Giants Opening Day Roster
If there's one thing I love about our fans is that they're loyal. Case and point, our undying love for Barry Bonds amid a sea of hatred by the rest of America.
We love our role players, our bullpen guys, and everyone in between (unless they're terrible of course).
Even me, The Dodgerhater, the mean guy that I am, feel pangs of sadness to see guys like Eli Whiteside...
The major league season has begun, but the farm is about to start games as well. For all you Giants fans out there, here’s a quick guide to the guys you should keep an eye on at each level of the farm system for the future of the Giants.

• Gary Brown – The top pick in 2010, Brown was expected to be on the fast track to be the Giants center fielder...
Opening Day didn’t go the way San Francisco Giants fans had hoped for, but guess what?!?! It’s just game 1 of 162! The Giants are back at it tonight against the Dodgers, and Madison Bumgarner will try to get the Giants their first win of the 2013 season.
Matt Cain started his first career Major League Opening Day, and it didn’t end like he hoped it would. However, he did pitch...
Buster Posey will be counted on to lead the Giants for the next several years.
Tools of ignorance indeed.
Try telling that to Giants catcher Buster Posey. He just signed a nine-year, $167 million contract extension. It’s the largest guaranteed contract in history for a player with three or fewer years of major league experience.
Posey rebounded from an horrific injury in...
As the 2013 Major League Baseball season gets underway, we step off the diamond for a moment and into the financial records of each of the 30 teams in the league.
We are taking a look at the salaries each team has on its records as of April 1, a joke to some folks but Opening Day to fans and teams alike. Obviously, with trades, cuts, call-ups and whatever else these numbers are...
When you hear the saying, “We’re golden,” it’s not often that you think of a team uniform in Major League Baseball. There have been highlights of it (the Nationals come to mind), but not to the extent about to unfold.
When the San Francisco Giants receive their second World Series rings on Sunday, April 7 they will be wearing these specially-designed jerseys from Majestic...

Losing a fly ball in the sun is part of afternoon baseball. Sunglasses help, but there’s only so much they can do. As Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Hunter Pence could tell you, they do even less when you don’t use them to cover your eyes.
During the sixth inning of Philadelphia’s 4-0 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday, Pence was unable to track down a shallow fly...
The San Francisco Giants came into today looking for revenge against the hated rival Los Angeles Dodgers and they got exactly that. After starting off the season being shutout 4-0 by Clayton Kershaw, San Francisco sent 23-year-old Madison Bumgarner to the hill and he delivered in a big way.
Bumgarner (1-0) shutout the Dodgers offense for 8 innings while only allowing 2 base runners...
It's like stepping in a large pile of deja vu on the sidewalk. All over again. On April 1, 2013, the San Francisco Giants lost their 6th season opener in the last ten years.
Will anything get this off my sneakers?
Before the Giants met the newly diamond-encrusted, gold leaf festooned Los Angeles Dodgers yesterday at Chavez Ravine word on the streets was, SF's gonna...
The parity of the Giants-Dodgers rivalry is one of the few ways that some national writers will admit that the west coast rivalry beats out that east coast one.
I still hate seeing the Dodgers win, however.
Props to Clayton Kershaw, however. That guy is an amazing pitcher. Nothing but respect to him as a player, but I’ll still always boo him. Dirty Dodger…
