However, I did get a chance to watch the Giants parade on TV.   Now that the season and parade...

Free agent preview: San Francisco Giants

The Giants trudged along this year in the NL West, getting continually overshadowed by the Dodgers trading for every name player with a pulse and spending money by the truckload.

The Dynasty Known as the San Francisco Giants

I’m not going to recap the four games of the World Series.

The Giants handled the Tigers in four games after being pushed to the brink of elimination in the NLDS by the Reds and again in the NLCS by the Cardinals...

Some are best-of-three...
