Countdown to Cooperstown: Tim Hudson

When Tim Hudson’s career ends, his Hall of Fame case is going to be an interesting one. Nothing about Hudson really jumps out at you from a historical perspective. His 3.44 ERA is good, but not great. His 1896 strikeouts aren’t the stuff of legend. Even Hudson’s 205 wins are nothing to write home about. But the sum of all the parts outweighs each part separately. In...

Hunter Pence’s bobblehead is riding a scooter (Photo)

Did you know Hunter Pence drives to AT&T Park on a scooter? I did not know that. I guess I’m more behind on Giants ballpark transportation trends than I would like to be because I’m still mystified by Tim Lincecum singing Hall & Oates in his car: Anyway, Hunter Pence rides a scooter to work, which a lot of people in the world do, only he’s a Major League Baseball player...

Giants Notes: Brett Pill reaches an agreement to play in Korea

SF Giants DFA Eric Surkamp

We recently talked about how the San Francisco Giants are selling Brett Pill’s contract to a foreign ball club. The talks began when the team signed Michael Morse, and needed to clear up space on the 40-man roster. So Morse is taking Pill’s place, right? Wrong. Since Pill has not yet reached an agreement with the Kia Tigers of the Korean Baseball League, the Giants...

Giants Sell Brett Pill's Contract to a Korean Team

The Brett Pill era is coming to an end in San Francisco. And unlike former players like Brian Wilson and Juan Uribe, the Giants won’t have to face him: because he’s headed to Korea. The Giants have agreed to sell Pill’s contract to the Kia Tigers of the Korean Professional League. And before people mention how rough it is to get traded to Korea, you cannot sell a contract...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Regarding Hunter Pence’s Scalding September

We all – to some degree – suffer from recency bias. It’s natural. Whenever you’re drafting in a few months you’ll likely remember Michael Wacha’s postseason performance and maybe rank him a little higher. You’ll remember that Pablo Sandoval was awesome in September and perhaps give him another chance despite the fact that he was dreadful for most of the season. You’re...

Why The Giants Should Have Signed Corey Hart Over Michael Morse

  Image used under Creative Commons from Steve Paluch I wrote an article a couple months ago and mentioned that the San Francisco Giants signing Corey Hart would have been a bright move given he is coming off an injury and he has tremendous potential. Impact of this means the Giants get a good player for less money. The injury while major was not career threatening and every...
