Can Hunter Pence rebound in 2013?

Hunter Pence has been the talk of the Giants, partially for his crazy singing and dancing and also because he will play a very import role in the 2013 Giants offense. Over at Bay Area Sports Guy I wrote up a post looking at what to expect from Pence in 2013. When the Giants traded for Hunter Pence last season they thought that they were getting a big bat to fill the middle of...

Buster Posey Gets Ripped On In MLB 13 The Show TV Spot

You have to give it to Buster Posey here for being such a good sport, and also have to give it to the folks at PlayStation for churning out this great TV spot.

It Doesn’t Matter…Does It?

So, Sergio Romo blew the save and Mexico lost a shocker to Italy. Well, he kinda blew it.  Here’s the play. … Well, it was blown even without the drop.  Deep fly ball to left with a man on third and one out, the game would’ve been tied.
