Still not the strangest thing Brian Wilson has ever done. This is a spoof of the Funny or Die bit, Between Two Ferns, only this one’s called Uncaged with Sasquatch!, with the mythical beast serving as host. This time around he interviews Giants closer Brian Wilson, except that the segment doesn’t go as planned because Wilson keeps receiving personal phone calls via telephones he brings with along with him. This upsets Sasquatch to the point that he storms off the set. Cue the hilarity! Public access television or not, who in their right mind would give Sasquatch his own show, knowing how terrible an interviewer he is. Still better than those clucking hens on The View though.

The Lineup Card: 8 People Who Could Use a Change of Scenery by Baseball Prospectus

1. Brandon Belt Brandon Belt burst onto the scene in 2010 and was, in Kevin Goldstein's words, "the biggest breakout in the minor leagues in 2010."It’s hard to argue with that assessment. Belt was the Giants’ fifth-round selection in the 2009 amateur draft, and all he did in his professional debut was zoom from High-A to Triple-A, hitting a cumulative...

Postgame Wrap: No Ham is Safe

Tonight’s game was vintage NL West. The Giants got up big in the first inning, and then fizzled. The Padres fought back in the second, and then fizzled. Madison Bumgarner, who looked shaky early, settled down and allowed just 3 hits, a walk and a hit-by-pitch – and 7 strikeouts – after the second inning. Edinson Volquez, part of the Mat Latos trade, looked shaky early but allowed...

Giants Beat Padres 7-1, Improve to 54-42

The Giants tagged Clayton Richard for four runs in the first inning of tonight’s game and it was cruise control the rest of the way, as Ryan Vogelsong held the Padres to one run over seven innings, and Buster Posey added a three-run blast in the fifth inning for good measure. Pretty much everything went right — or at least, everything that needed to go right. The Giants’ 2...

Daily Friar 7.25.12

Every time we play the Giants it has a playoff atmosphere to it. I get that vibe especially when we are playing in San Francisco. I don't know if it's the sold out crowds or what, but it feels like a playoff game every time. Those people up there live and die with every pitch it seems, they go crazy for a base hit even. But that place really exploded when Angel Pagan stole...

That seems to be the opinion of the Aggies’ coach, anyway.  Sumlin said it’s easy to kick a guy off the team...
