Found January 09, 2013 on Fangraphs:
Kyle Crick enters 2013 as the top prospect in the San Francisco Giants organization. Having seen his final start of the 2012 season, I can attest to his having both the raw stuff and durable frame to eat innings at the Major League level. On a night where I saw him bad, Crick’s arsenal was awfull...

SF Giants Rumors: Freddy Sanchez Drawing Interest

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com says (via Twitter) there’s some teams that are checking out Freddy Sanchez‘s medical records. Sanchez was only with the San Francisco Giants for a few seasons, but I’m a huge Freddy fan. Which means, it would be hard for me to see him in another uniform. I actually thought he would probably just retire after missing all of the 2012 season.   Freddy...

SF Giants Rumors: Brian Wilson Update

Free agent reliever and fan favorite Brian Wilson has completed his long-toss program and will be throwing off a mound soon, reports Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.   Schulman points out that the San Francisco Giants are still willing to discuss a contract with Wilson, but it would be in Wilson’s best interest to hold off signing with the Giants or any team at this...

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says (via Twitter) there’s been no contract discussions between the San Francisco Giants and Buster Posey‘s agent.   Posey is entering his first of four years of arbitration.

Barry Bonds, The Hall of Fame Should Be Chanting Your Name

It’s that time of the year again, everyone is going to put in their two cents about which players should or shouldn’t be voted into the Hall of Fame. With that said, here’s my argument for one of the greatest baseball players to ever put on spikes. Yes, I’m sure you already knew I was talking about Barry Bonds. I can give you 762 reasons as to why the Home Run King should...

Voters disappoint with 2013 Baseball Hall of Fame class

The rumors had been floating around for a while, but, as a baseball fan, I hoped they were untrue.  The Baseball Hall of Fame voters were not going to vote anyone into the Hall of Fame in 2013.  Today, those rumors came to fruition.  On a charged ballot featuring the first time candidacy of Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and Sammy Sosa, no one was elected into the Hall of Fame....

When Barry Bonds Made an Out

It was announced earlier today that Barry Bonds has not been voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Nobody was voted into the Hall of Fame, and there are several topics worthy of discussion, but I’m partial to the Bonds one, myself, because the voting results provide a reason to look at Bonds’ career statistics again. Asterisks or no asterisks, Bonds’ numbers are downright impossible...

Total Run Index Series: Top Free Agent Second Basemen

When we looked at the top twenty fantasy second basemen we discovered that the crop was pretty weak. That means the same will also be true of the free agent crop of second baseman. Most of the prominent second basemen have been signed, but there are still a few left on the open market. There might not be any starting quality guys (depending on who you ask) but they could be valuable...
