We suggest you go visit Kyle at Crossing Broad this morning for a full report on what Pat Burrell was up to very early this morning in Philadelphia. There are rumors of Pat the Bat & Chase Utley holding court at some bar called the Pen & Pencil. Needless to say we’re on pins & needles waiting for the shirtless pics & the videos to surface. It’s Burrell weekend in Philly and all hell is about to break loose. Skanks should be on HIGH ALERT! Pics of Burrell to share? mail@bustedcoverage

SF Giants Rumors Interview With Joe Panik

The San Francisco Giants selected shortstop Joe Panik in the 1st round (29th overall) of the 2011 draft. He’s now working his way through the Giants farm system, and Giants fans hope he’s on fast track to the Big Leagues. Panik has been kind enough to sit down and do an interview with Steven Robles of SF Giants Rumors. This interview was taken place after batting practice on...

Tim Lincecum Struggles As Giants Fail to Get the Sweep

Over their previous five games, the Giants had drawn 33 walks — 31 of them unintentional; this is a team that’s been all about swinging at the first pitch, putting the ball in play, and avoiding strikeouts at the expense of working the count and drawing walks, but for once, it seemed as though they had begun to adopt a more patient approach. Sunday’s game against Bartolo Colon...

Guy Wearing Yellow Suit Runs Onto Field at San Francisco Giants Game, Tries to Scale Outfield Wall (Video)

Running onto the playing field is never encouraged. But if you're going to be dumb enough to do it, at least don't make yourself look like more of an idiot than you already are. Unfortunately, one fan in San Francisco was unable to avoid such embarrassment. Not only did he run onto the field, but he sprinted to the center-field wall, at which point he tried unsuccessfully...

Phillies Honor Pat Burrell

Tonight, the Philadelphia Phillies will honor a long time love to  hate/fan favorite, Pat Burrell.  Pat "the bat" was drafted by the Phillies in 1998, as he was first overall pick from the University of Miami.  Burrell played 9 of his 12 years with the Phillies, and will be honored in a pre-game ceremony before tonight's 7:05 start versus the Boston Red Sox.  Burrell...

Postgame Wrap: I’ll Have Another

I feel like I can’t go a day without describing that day’s Giants game as “weird.” But this game was weird. For the first 6 innings, this game was vintage 2011, except for the whole getting-on-base part. Tyson Ross looked bad, but the Giants couldn’t do anything with it. By the beginning of the 7th, it looked like Tyson Ross had had a good day, when one well-timed hit by...

Giants 4, Athletics 0

Ryan Vogelsong allowed one hit in seven scoreless innings and played a key role in San Francisco's go-ahead rally as the Giants beat the Oakland Athletics for the 11th straight time at home, 4-0 on Saturday. Vogelsong (2-2) retired the first 13 batters he faced and allowed only a soft single to right-center by Seth Smith with one out in the fifth. But he was still locked in...

That Golden Gate Bridge Patch

The Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary Patch Want to get that awesome Golden Gate Bridge patch the Giants are wearing?  They’re for sale from the GGB’s 75th Anniversary Store for a ridiculously reasonable price.  Seriously, I usually pay more than that for shipping.  Wait…I am paying more for shipping on that than for the actual patch! I blame UPS.  And rising gas prices...

Brad Penny, Giants agree on minor league deal

Right-hander Brad Penny has agreed to terms on a minor league contract with the San Francisco Giants as a candidate to help in the bullpen. Penny, who briefly pitched for the Giants down the down the stretch in 2009 and went 4-1 with a 2.59 ERA in six starts, is scheduled to report to extended spring training in Arizona on Monday. He threw a bullpen session Friday afternoon at AT...

Giants 8, Athletics 6

Barry Zito outdid his old Oakland team, Brandon Belt drove in three runs, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Oakland Athletics in the Bay Bridge Series opener 8-6 on Friday night Hector Sanchez had two RBIs to back Zito (3-1), who won the 2002 AL Cy Young Award across the bay in Oakland but left for a $126 million, seven-year deal with the Giants before the 2007 season. Josh...

Athletics 6, Giants 2

Collin Cowgill drove in the go-ahead runs and scored in a home plate collision with pitcher Tim Lincecum, and the Oakland Athletics snapped an 11-game losing streak in San Francisco with a 6-2 victory over the Bay Area rival Giants on Sunday. Cowgill capped a four-run fourth inning against Lincecum and the collision put a scare into San Francisco and its struggling, shaggy-haired...

Pushup Recognition

Sure, I post this after the Giants won by getting a lot of hits, but this goes back the last few weeks. It is getting damn frustrating watching a lot of these guys, even the ones I have irrational man-love for like Schierholtz and Belt, swing at terrible pitches, and then let fastballs in the zone go by.  What are they looking for? Now, since my parents (and multiple jobs) have...

POSTGAME WRAP: Colon Cleanse

Tim Lincecum gave up four runs to the A’s. That’s like giving up a 3-pointer to Ronny Turiaf. He’s broken folks. Sure, some of those hits were on good pitches and just found holes, but hitters used to struggle to make contact on Timmy’s pitches. Missing bats is what won him two Cy Young awards and got him to four consecutive All-Star games. Oh, and the hair. The hair helps...

Bridge To Nowhere? A's Travel To SF

In recent years, knowing who would win a game in the Bay Bridge Series was as simple as looking at the location of the game. Both the Oakland A's and the San Francisco Giants have dominated in their home parks against one another. The A's will look to buck that trend this weekend, as they travel to AT&T Park for a three-game set. Chris Biderman previews the match-up.

Blanton and Lester Headline "Pat Burrell Day"

Look Out Ladies! Today, Pat "the Bat" will officially retire as a Phillie after he signs a one-day contract with the team he got his start from. There will be a nice ceremony before the game, he'll throw out the first pitch and most likely collect a standing ovation from the crowd. That's nice, for Burrell spent most of his career (2000-2008) with the Phillies...

Phillies Honor Pat Burrell, Lose in Wild Offensive Showing

Final: Red Sox 7, Phillies 5.  WP: Lester (3-3, 3.95) LP: Blanton (4-4, 3.74) SV: Aceves (9) Pat Burrell walked into the friendly confines of Citizens Bank Park Saturday evening and said his final goodbyes before officially retiring as a Philadelphia Phillie.  His 251 homeruns with the Phillies ranks 4th in franchise-history. Burrell threw out the first pitch prior to the...
