Derek Holland gave up two runs right away in the 1st inning, and I tried not to panic.  Holland believes he’s pitching well, and I waited for him to show me that. I’m still waiting. OK, so Dutch did have a few good innings.  But they were few and far between.  Between innings when he was giving up runs.  And home runs.  It was just not Derek’s day.  And the interview they showed with him during the game didn’t really help.  He was going on and on about how he thinks he’s pitching well and doesn’t care what others think.  Actions speak louder than words, Derek. The offense tried giving Dutch something to work with.  They put up five runs of support in the 4th, but Derek gave those runs right back in a hurry.  It looked like the Rangers might take a lead in the late innings, but Elvis Andrus ran through a stop sign from Dave Anderson and was tagged out at home and then failed to bunt a ball in the dirt on a squeeze.  It was not Elvis’ day. He and Derek can commisserate together tonight

Dayton + Frenchy 4 ever

As I listened to Dayton Moore’s interview with Soren Petro of 810 WHB last week I found many things hard to stomach. For one thing Petro’s questioning was so timid that it started a #ToughQuestionsForDayton hashtag on twitter that sarcastically made fun of him. If we can’t askMoorethe hard questions at this point, when will we? Second, I hated hearingMooremove the goal line...

Giants Claim Jose Mijares Off Waivers

Earlier today, the Giants acquired left-handed reliever Jose Mijares from the Kansas City Royals via waivers. The Giants simply claimed him off waivers and didn’t have to give up anything in return, so they basically got him for free. Mijares, 27, doesn’t hit free agency until 2015, and he’s actually having a very good season: he’s tossed 38.2 innings across 51 appearances...
