Found May 24, 2012 on Outside the Boxscore:

Previously on Outside the Boxscore, we showed you a clip of Giants pitcher Santiago Casilla drawing a walk with his unique batting stance.

Well, Casilla had to bat during the extra inning affair between the Brewers/Giants and showed again that he doesn't like standing batters box:

Giants P Casilla jumps out of batter's box

Here is the video of San Francisco Giants pitcher Santiago Casilla taking an at-bat in the 14th inning last night against the Brewers.Look at how far away he tries to stand from the batter's box. Casilla is not used to hitting at all and he is very scared of getting hit by the pitcher. The fun begins around the 1:05 mark of the video. Here is another at-bat from...

Brandon Belt and Strikeouts

Brandon Belt hasn’t started his season as most would have hoped, as he currently boasts a .227/.346/.330 line. He’s had solid on-base numbers to this point, but he’s failed to hit the ball with much authority — in fact, he has yet to hit his first home run of 2012. Additionally, he’s striking out at a rather high clip — 26.2% of his plate appearances have ended in a strikeout...

Marlins look to rebound against Giants with J.J.

San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy is confident that Tim Lincecum will regain his All-Star form soon. Miami Marlins starter Josh Johnson already has. While Lincecum will try to get back on track Friday night in Miami, Johnson will seek a third straight win. Lincecum (2-4, 6.04 ERA) has allowed four runs in each of his last three outings and didn't make it past the fourth...

Giants' Cain finally getting run support

There's a verb in Giantsville describing a pitcher who has an excellent game and walks away without a win. It's called Cain. Or the act of getting Cained. Nobody has been Cained more than Matt Cain in recent years, the victim of lousy run support year after year. Well, things are changing. He gave up four runs in each of his past two starts and won them both. The...

To The Moon, Buster!

Matt Cain just wasn’t quite right all night. But that’s okay, because his battery-mate Buster Posey was. Posey hit a ground-rule double in the first, then followed that up with dead-center no-brainer panty-dropping 2-run home run in the 6th that hit the scoreboard. Before today’s game, I didn’t know where the scoreboard in Miller Park was. Buster showed me the way. I could...

SF Giants Rumors: Looking To Sweep, Arias And Posey Go Deep, Just Another Day At The Office For Melky

Catcher Buster Posey hit a monster shot that hit...

Zito looks like old struggling self

After two innings, the San Francisco Giants trailed 8-0. The game in Milwaukee virtually ended there. They lost 8-5. Is Barry Zito back to his old ways? Zito pitched a clunker in a season he's been surprisingly good. Does the fan base take Wednesday's performance as a blip on the screen? Or the beginning of more struggles for the left-handed pitcher? Zito walked three...

Giants-Marlins Preview

A lack of run support has prevented Anibal Sanchez from sporting a better record for the Miami Marlins. He has not needed much help from his teammates in order to achieve success against the San Francisco Giants. San Francisco's Ryan Vogelsong knows a thing or two about receiving little support. Sanchez hopes to avoid a third straight losing start while trying for a fourth...

Take Roy With A Grain O’ Swalt

I almost made Tim Lincecum today’s Buy. His FIP really isn’t bad. He just always seems to have one bad inning. His numbers with men in scoring position: .346/.471/.547 vs. .243/.313/.379 with none on. But I’m not going to tell you to Buy Lincecum. I’m not sticking my neck out for him! He smokes marijuana! Now, Roy Oswalt I can get lukewarm about! How’s dem apples...
