As the San Francisco Giants hosted the San Diego Padres Tuesday night, Angel Pagan made a tremendous diving catch, which turned into a phenomenal double play.

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.

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...
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...

In clearly the least shocking development from Tuesday’s slate of baseball games is the news that Pablo Sandoval, the San Francisco Giants infielder who affectionately goes by the name of Kung-Fu Panda, injured his hamstring stretching out and practically doing the splits to catch a throw in order to [...]

Among the first sparks of trade deadline fever breaking out today with the Ichiro trade to New York and the Miami Marlins trading away infielder Omar Infante and starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez to the Detroit Tigers, the Giants seem to be searching for some help in the bullpen.
Ken Rosenthal and Jon Morosi of FOX sports reported yesterday they have a major league source saying the...
