San Francisco Giants Baseball (SF Giants...:
First Seattle, and now Anaheim. The San Francisco Giants have lost back-to-back series to American League teams on the road. Next up for the Giants is the Athletics in Oakland.
Infielder Aubrey Huff is eligible to come off the disabled list on Tuesday, but manager Bruce Bochy isn’t going to guarantee he’d rejoin the team that day.
Matt Cain‘s hat, cleats, game ball, infield dirt, first base, a “K” sign, and the Chronicle’s front page (next day) will be given to Jeff Idelson (President of HOF) in a pregame ceremony Tuesday night.
Don’t forget to go to the SF Giants Rumors Facebook page to share your thoughts on the Giants dropping 2 series in a row, Huff’s injury and Cain’s gear going to the HOF!

Between worrying about Tim Lincecum‘s performances, the recovery of a “heavier” Pablo Sandoval, the joys of watching Matt Cain pitch perfectly or Melky Cabrera move into third in the National League for starting outfielder in this summer’s All-Star game, I’ve decided to shed some light on the future of the Giants organization.
Before this season, I was excited about the...
The San Francisco Giants have dropped game 2 of the 3-game series to the Angels. Barry Zito tossed 3 1/3 innings before Bruce Bochy finally decided to pull the hook. Zito gave up 8 runs in his short outing.
Outfielder Melky Cabrera is having an awesome year thus far. Last night he reached 100 hits in 291 plate appearances. That’s the fastest in San Francisco history! The living...
Episode 80: We Got 25 On It is out!
In the eightieth episode, Thomas and Danny talk about Aubrey Huff’s freak injury, Barry Zito’s regression to the suck, Matt Cain’s perfect game IN CASE YOU HADN’T HEARD ABOUT IT, Danny’s venture into Seattle, the Designated Hitter position, fun with lineups, and they watch some Brandons.

Three consecutive singles. Two walks sandwiched around a defensive misplay. Then three consecutive strikeouts. That's how San Francisco Giants right-handerTim Lincecum gave up three first-inning runs Friday at Oakland. Weird inning in a weird game in a weird season for the two-time Cy Young Award winner. Lincecum followed up a sloppy first inning with five hitless innings...
Tim Lincecum is 2-8. He has not won since April 28. His team has lost 9 straight games he has started. He has an ERA over 6.00. He has a career worse 4.8 walks per 9 innings. His average fastball velocity is lower than ever. Tim Lincecum is also 28. He has won two Cy Young Awards. He is striking out more than a batter per inning this season. He and the team claim that he is healthy...
Brandon Belt hit a tying two-run double and scored on Hector Sanchez's single during a four-run ninth inning, and the San Francisco Giants rallied past the Bay Area rival Oakland Athletics 5-4 on Friday night.
Ryan Cook (2-2) walked Buster Posey and Pablo Sandoval on nine pitches to open the final inning. Belt sliced a double down the left-field line just out of the reach of...
4, 2, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 0, 6, 0, 6, 10, 3, 4, 4, 1, 5, 5, 0.
Those are the total runs scored by the Giants in each game they’ve played since the beginning of June. Before today’s game the Giants were averaging 4.01 runs per game, which is just below the league average of 4.17. They had an OPS+ of 101, and had managed to scrape together a perfectly cromulent offense. Weird.
Tim Lincecum is not alone.
Sure, the Giants' foundering ace is the most obvious example of year-to-year All-Star regression, but plenty more 2011 All-Stars have struggled to repeat their success.
It was only last July that Lincecum arrived at the Midsummer Classic as a National League selection for the fourth straight season. He was a defending World Series champion, too, en...
Tim Lincecum (credits below) I won’t be doing the self-rating this week. It will be an every-other week thing, so that it doesn’t become redundant.
Sell High: Bryan LaHair
One of the nice surprises of 2012 has been Bryan LaHair, who has both invigorated Cubs fans and infuriated them. LaHair has provided the Cubs with the dilemma of whether to sell on LaHair to make...
