Corbin, D-backs finish series with Giants

Though the San Francisco Giants have a comfortable lead atop the NL West, Ryan Vogelsong might be one of his team's few concerns.

The Giants Are 82-62

Okay, so I’ve got a lot to catch up on. Let’s jump right into it… – The Giants are 82-62, seven and a half games up in the NL West. They still have 18 games left to play (the Dodgers have 17), and the magic number is all the way down to 11. Let’s say the Giants go 8-7 before that final series in Los Angeles. That means, as long as the Dodgers lose at least three games...

D-backs' Miley goes for 16th win vs. Giants

The San Francisco Giants have had little trouble putting up runs on the road recently. The Giants hope that trend continues Saturday night when they try to deny Arizona Diamondbacks rookie Wade Miley his 16th win.

Angel Pagan Has A Higher WAR Than All Of The Mets Outfielders Combined In 2012

Angel Pagan is the #3 ranked free agent outfielder this offseason. Could any of you have ever imagined this? Me doing a post gathering data from Fangraphs and even using WAR to illustrate the point of this post? Who says you can’t teach an old dog a new trick… Anyway, I’m still trying to wrap my brain around all these wholesale changes that are apparently coming this offseason...

Time Off

True story. I mean, sure, there’s some fair guesses you can make about the NLDS, but nothing’s in stone, and the Giants overtaking the Reds for the second seed is not entirely impossible. The NLCS is a bag of questions, though.  If the Nationals are the top seed, they’ll be very vulnerable in a five-game series, especially against the Braves.  So it’s not all that likely...
