MLB Injury News:
Entering yesterday’s exhibition contest, San Francisco
Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval expressed confidence he’d be ready for
Opening Day. However, his outlook was less optimistic following the game after
he aggravated his elbow injury.
Manager Bruce Bochy told reporters – including Daniel Brown
of The San Jose Mercury News – that Sandoval was shut down after he experienced
discomfort in his right elbow. Sandoval suited up as the team’s designated
hitter against the Oakland Athletics, but he was removed after two plate
appearances. It was his first time in an exhibition game since March 16.
Sandoval had been sidelined due to a bone spur and irritated
ulnar nerve in his elbow. His chances of suiting up Monday were looking good,
but now the Giants may be forced to enter the season with Joaquin Arias at the
Sandoval hit .283/.342/447 with 25 doubles and 12 home runs
over 442 plate appearances last season. The 26-year-old owns a career batting
line of .303/.353/.490.

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...
In a new commercial promoting the upcoming season, San Francisco Giants pitcher Sergio Romo is asked by a female fan what he would have been if he wasn't a professional pitcher.
While Romo could envision himself being an astronaut, a DJ, or maybe a chef, the female fan (identified as Katrina) could see him as a professional dancer...of the exotic variety.

In one of the more amusingly awkward promotional commercials by a major league ball club thus far this year, San Francisco Giants right-handed relief pitcher Sergio Romo is asked by a female fan what career he would choose to go into if he were not a professional pitcher.
Romo rattles off a few alternative careers: An astronaut, a DJ, a chef. But then the female fan — who for some...
POCKETS FULL FOR POSEY
Brian Sabean said he wanted Buster Posey to be a Giant for life, and that could very well be the case with the news that they have signed the reigning NL MVP to a massive deal.
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...
San Francisco Giants fans can rejoice, Buster Posey will likely never wear another uniform again. The icon of the Giants signed a 9-year deal that will keep him in a San Francisco jersey until 2022.
The contract extension includes a full no-trade clause and can include incentives if Posey achieves certain accolades. It is an 8-year deal but could include a 9th year on a team option...
Buster Posey is the San Francisco Giants' new franchise man.
The Giants rewarded NL MVP and batting champion with a $167 million, nine-year contract Friday, a deal that includes a club option for 2022 that could raise the value to $186 million over a decade.
The agreement is the longest for a catcher and the largest in Giants history, surpassing Matt Cain's $127.5 million...
Yesterday was getaway day for the San Francisco Giants. They played their final game in Arizona, and then boarded a plane to head back to San Francisco. They’re facing the A’s tonight at AT&T Park.
Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News reports (via Twitter) that manager Bruce Bochy is optimistic that Pablo Sandoval will be ready for Opening Day. If Sandoval has to start...
Yoenis Cespedes' slow start to spring training is a distant memory. Now Oakland's slugging outfielder is hoping to carry his hot swing into the regular season.
Cespedes homered for the second time in three days, a three-run shot off San Francisco starter Ryan Vogelsong, and the Athletics held on to beat the Giants 4-3 on Saturday in the final tuneup for both teams.
“We goin’ Sizzler. We goin’ Sizzler.”
That’s one of my favorite lines from from one of my favorite movies, “White Men Can’t Jump.” The line comes early in the movie when Sidney (Wesley Snipes) and Billy (Woody Harrelson) put money on a shooting contest. When it appears Sidney is about to make Billy look like the chump that he is, Sidney’s friend starts mocking...
The San Francisco Giants got hot at exactly the right time last season and carried that momentum not only to a National League West division crown, but to a World Series championship by blowing through the Detroit Tigers in a dominating sweep. The Giants have won two World Series championships in the past two seasons and the question is, will anybody in the National League West be...
