Lincecum For 5 Years, $87.5 Million: Do You Do It?

In five of his last six starts, Tim Lincecum has gone at least seven innings, and given up three runs or less. Is he back?  Is this just a hot streak for a diminished player? Well, this is the season where the Giants are playing for next season, so the real question is: What should the Giants pay to keep Lincecum around? The Upside: Well, it’s Tim Lincecum.  This is the guy who...

The winds of change are blowing..San Francisco Giants Should Call-Up Gary Brown

  There’s something strange going on in San Francisco, most notably at AT&T Park. The San Francisco Giants aren’t winning games at home like years past, and to make matters worse they are even worse on the road. Talk radio here in The City is blowing up with calls from fans clamoring for change and giving suggestions for what the Giants need to do. Fans aren’t experts...

San Francisco Giants: believe in Brandon Belt

The San Francisco Giants are still losing and find themselves fully entrenched at the bottom of the NL West. There are many facets of the team that can be blamed for this disappointing season, but the play of Brandon Belt should not be one of them. This became even more apparent during the Giants’ 5-2 extra innings loss against the Baltimore Orioles. Down 0-2 going into the 7th...

Brewers try to tame Giants' Tim Lincecum

Tim Lincecum hasn't won since his no-hitter last month, but San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy likes the way the right-hander has been throwing. Bochy can't be as confident about his club's offense heading into Thursday's series finale with the visiting Milwaukee Brewers. A two-time Cy Young Award winner and the owner of two World Series rings, Lincecum (5...

Bochy challenges SF Giants to play for each other and the fans

As soon as the words left Madison Bumgarner’s mouth Wednesday night I knew he might get some blowback. I had asked if he thought players have “checked out” mentally since it became apparent this season was lost. “Sometimes yeah I do” Bumgarner said. “It seems like some days we come in here and some days it doesn’t seem like it.” Manager Bruce Bochy addressed Bumgarner’s...

Giants 3, Orioles 2

Hunter Pence hit a go-ahead, two-run double in the sixth inning as San Francisco's stagnant lineup finally got to Wei-Yin Chen, and the Giants beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-2 on Saturday. Chris Davis hit his majors-leading 42nd home run for the Orioles leading off the eighth against Santiago Casilla, then grounded out against closer Sergio Romo to end it with a runner on first...

Pagan Desperately Missed By Giants

Can one man make a difference on a team? If you ask the San Francisco Giants (52-64), the answer is yes. They have been missing their starting center fielder, Angel Pagan, since May 25th, when he scored his final run of the season with a walk-off in the park home run against the Colorado Rockies. Since Pagan’s season ending injury, the Giants are 26-44 and in last place in the...

Bumgarner, Slumping Giants Fall to Brewers

After being a pitcher’s duel for most of the evening, Madison Bumgarner failed to make it out of the eighth inning as the Giants woes at home continued in their latest loss to the Brewers. San Francisco managed only three hits against Milwaukee, and while taking a brief one run lead in the seventh inning, three hits to lead off the eighth inning and a key throwing error to third...

Lincecum near-perfect, Belt blasts Giants ahead of Brewers

The slumping San Francisco offense finally broke open early on Thursday, and Tim Lincecum cruised to a 4-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. The mixed-up Giants lineup didn’t waste any time jumping all over Brewers starter Donovan Hand. Marco Scutaro led off the game with a single and moved to third on a double by Brandon Crawford. After Pablo Sandoval flied out, the new clean-up...

Pirates’ Rookie Gerrit Cole’s Girlfriend Is Amy Crawford

Amy Crawford might be a good luck charm. As the sister of San Francisco Giants’ shortstop Brandon Crawford, Amy was obviously a big…

Davis hits 42nd HR but Giants win

In the eighth inning Saturday, Chris Davis connected for one of the fastest, fiercest home runs to clear the fences that anyone can remember at AT&T Park. San Francisco closer Sergio Romo then found himself staring at the majors' home run leader an inning later with the tying run at first. Romo retired Davis on a game-ending groundout, and solid pitching wasn't wasted...

RECAP: Giants Beat Orioles 3-2, “It’s Nice to Be On The Winning Side”

Chad Gaudin held a tough Baltimore offense to one unearned run and San Francisco’s bats came through on Saturday as the Giants beat the Orioles 3-2 on Saturday afternoon. Gaudin held the Orioles to just two hits and one unearned run through five innings of work. Gaudin walked three and struck out six, and has now allowed two runs or fewer in nine of his 11 starts. 92 pitches limited...

Tim Lincecum dominates Brewers in series finale

Tim Lincecum had one no-hitter under his belt coming into Thursday’s series finale with the Milwaukee Brewers at AT&T Park and he wound up coming awfully close to throwing another. The Brewers managed just one hit over eight innings against Lincecum a leadoff double in the third inning by Juan Francisco before eventually falling to the Giants 4-1. Lincecum allowed just two...

Pence delivers, Giants hold on to beat Orioles 3-2

Giants manager Bruce Bochy didn’t always play Brandon Belt against left-handed pitchers. He sure as heck didn’t bat him third in the lineup. On Saturday Bochy did both. It was an obvious decision since Belt was the only guy in the lineup making loud contact. It seems like forever since the Giants have gotten more than one hitter in a hot streak at a time. So even when Belt...
