The Braves series started off with a bang, as the San Francisco Giants took the first two games of the 4-game set. They ended up dropping the next two games to split the series with the Braves. However, the G-men did manage to win the season series (7 games) 4 games to 3. They haven’t won a season series over the Braves since 2009.   If you missed yesterday’s game, you didn’t miss much. There was a lot of runs given up, and just a single run scored for the Giants. It also was just another Tim Lincecum loss at home. He’s now lost 4 out of his last 5 games at AT&T Park. Lincecum is now 7-14 on the season, and the team is 7-20 in Lincecum’s starts. It was nice to see outfielder Hunter Pence have a nice game at the plate yesterday. Pence went 3-for-4, so let’s hope this is a sign that he’s starting to heat up! The bullpen could be getting some help tomorrow in Houston. Relief pitcher Guillermo Mota is eligible to be reinstated tomorrow (Tuesday) after serving his 100 game PED suspen...

A Corgi In A Grass Skirt And The Very Best Of The San Francisco Giants Dog Days 2012

Then again, she also likes to roll around in cat poop, so maybe she was a Mets fan in another life. Either way, no team can really hold a candle to having pooches as fans like the San Francisco Giants, as their annual Dog Days celebration is really something to behold. Sure, plenty...
