If there's one thing I love about our fans is that they're loyal. Case and point, our undying love for Barry Bonds amid a sea of hatred by the rest of America. We love our role players, our bullpen guys, and everyone in between (unless they're terrible of course). Even me, The Dodgerhater, the mean guy that I am, feel pangs of sadness to see guys like Eli Whiteside leave our organization and bounce around. If I feel that way about a light-hitting backup catcher whose highlights were his HR off Roy Halladay off the foul pole that one time, his eagerness to fight the Dodgers, his gray hair, and his Led Zeppelin entrance song, imagine how hard it is for me to watch our former ace, Tim Lincecum struggle so badly. The tide is beginning to shift a bit when it comes to Timmeh.

Giants opening day roster finalized

The Giants finalized their roster for Monday’s season debut against the Dodgers.

Athletics 4, Giants 3

Yoenis Cespedes' slow start to spring training is a distant memory. Now Oakland's slugging outfielder is hoping to carry his hot swing into the regular season.

Breaking down Buster Posey’s record contract

“We goin’ Sizzler. We goin’ Sizzler.” That’s one of my favorite lines from from one of my favorite movies, “White Men Can’t Jump.” The line comes early in the movie when Sidney (Wesley Snipes) and Billy (Woody Harrelson) put money on a shooting contest.
