Postgame Wrap: Beer > Giants

Tonight’s wrap is going to be pretty quick. Pretty half-assed, honestly, thanks to the fact that I spent most of the night shmoozing with BayAreaSportsGuy and company, and drinking a beer for every run that Timmy gave up. So yeah, this game sucked, but in a very status quo kind of way. The Giants, true to fashion, managed one rally that produced two runs and made their fans not...

SF Giants Rumors: Struggling Lincecum, 3rd Base Option

However, the G-Men still dropped 2-out-of-3 to lose the series.   Although he’s showing signs that he’s back, Tim Lincecum hasn’t put it all together yet.

Ryan Vogelsong and Cause For Concern

Right-hander Ryan Vogelsong proved to be one of the feel-good stories of the year in 2011. The 34-year-old owned an unsightly career 5.86 ERA through 315 major-league innings with the San Francisco Giants and Pittsburgh Pirates coming into the 2011 season. He then seemingly flipped a switch and handcuffed the league with a 2.71 ERA and 3.67 FIP over 179.2 innings for the Giants and...

BP Unfiltered: Miguel Tejada Did It by Sam Miller

In fact, Melvin Mora said, he recently spoke to former Oriole Miguel Tejada, who was cut this season by the San Francisco Giants, and talked about reuniting in Baltimore. “I said, ‘Why don’t we go back to the Orioles?' And he said, ‘You want to do that?'" Mora said. “I don’t know. I guess we have to see who the general manager of the Orioles is to see...

D-backs look to continue success vs. Giants

Facing the San Francisco Giants might be the ideal way for the Arizona Diamondbacks to get back on track. It's usually led to positive results for Trevor Cahill. Cahill and the Diamondbacks hope to continue their success against the Giants on Saturday night at Chase Field. Arizona (15-18) snapped a five-game losing streak Friday with a 5-1 victory over San Francisco (15-17...

We Meet Again…Wait, Have We Met?
