You MUST check out this Deadspin article. It's every Pat Burrell stereotype from his whole career in Philly all rolled into one, except it's legitimate. Some highlights: Pat Burrell removed his shirt at the bar the night before his first pitch appearance Saturday,  with Chase Utley and Jennifer Utley Burrell "made an ass of himself" Burrell "stiffed the bartender and left no tip" It's a must read.

The Giants defense to blame for disappointing record

  Throughout this season, the Giants have had flashes of brilliance, mixed in with moments of complete disgust – typical roller coaster San Francisco baseball (commonly known as “torture”). After over a month of baseball this season, where do we pinpoint the source of the Giants struggles? The Giants offense has been much better than expected (3.78 runs per game), but still...

Pablo Sandoval gets reporter Jaymee Sire IN THE FACE with shaving cream

In resisisting a vast array of horribly inappropriate headlines, we bring you this video from CSN Bay Area after a Giants win over the Athletics this weekend.  As CSN's Jaymee Sire is interviewing Angel Pagan in the Giants locker room, injured third basemen Pablo Sandoval is lurking in the wings ready to pounce with ye olde towel full of shaving cream.  Sandoval eventually...

Worley Sees Dr. Andrews; Rollins Out of Lineup

Vance is seeing Dr. Andrews. (AP)-Three words you never want to hear if you’re a pitcher: Dr. James Andrews. Vance Worley is hearing those words today as he sees the infamous doctor to get a better sense of why he’s having elbow pain. Ruben Amaro gave that update today, but did not have any results from the appointment as of roughly 4:30 pm. Results from an MRI showed a bone...

2012 Uniform Change: San Francisco Giants Golden Gate Badge

The Golden Gate Bridge turned 75 this year and the entire Bay Area is celebrating (seriously, there’s a site dedicated to it and everything). A post on Uni Watch Blog had a picture that showed the Giants sporting the 75th Anniversary Patch as part of the celebration: I did some research and you can’t buy this patch from the Giants website, however, you can purchase it from...

SF Giants Rumors: Lincecum, Pagan, Cabrera, Penny, Theriot, Burriss, Sandoval

The San Francisco Giants just took 2-out-of-3 from their Bay Area rivals (Athletics). Giants fans should be feeling good about this series win right? Well, that doesn’t seem like the case. Most fans expected Tim Lincecum (2-4, 6.04 ERA) to snap out of his funk and get right back on track.   Lincecum only tossed 4 innings and gave up 4 earned runs. He’s allowed 4 or more runs...

Bryce Harper Hoping Phillies Fans Won't Be Throwing Batteries at Him in First Trip to Philadelphia

Bryce Harper is already at the center of the bad blood that is brewing between his Nationals and the Phillies. Harper made news last week just by taking a Cole Hamels fastball to the back in his first at-bat against the veteran left-hander. Hamels took the situation to the next level after the game when he admitted to intentionally plunking Harper. Everyone and their brother had...

Yes, The Phillies Lie About Injuries, So What?

The ballpark remains packed. Vance Worley is on the DL, and we now know he has bone chips in his elbow. Could be one, could be many. Could be bad, maybe not though. What's funny is, the day before his last scheduled start, he was still going to throw, right up until that game ended. Then he went to the DL the next day, not just missing a turn. Now, we find out this...

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...

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...

The stars aligned in Philly for what was a special night. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel had a great view of the game...
