SF Giants Rumors: Barry Zito Does It All, Nick Noonan To Make First MLB Start

Credit: Steven Robles – SF Giants Rumors It was a nice hot day in San Francisco as the San Francisco Giants put an old fashion whooping on the Rockies (10-0) to sweep the series. Barry Zito tossed 7 innings of shutout ball, and hasn’t allowed a single run on the season. Is it too early to start the Cy Young Award campaign? Zito didn’t just do it with his arm. He also racked...

Nick Noonan Joins the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Nick Noonan's journey from 1st round pick in the 2007 amateur baseball draft (32nd overall) to getting his first Major League start as a San Francisco Giant this week could be described as circuitous. In the same way that Barry Zito's curve ball drifts up, describes a parabola, then drops through that 17 inch square target umpires hopefully recognize as a strike. ...

Tim Lincecum: I’m seen as a “piece of meat”

Not too long ago, Tim Lincecum was one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball. His long hair and his unique delivery were on the top of baseball. He won back-to-back NL Cy Young awards, won 2 World Series starts, and was the face of the franchise. He was only 27, right when a pitcher is entering the prime of their careers. Then, last year happened. His regular season was terrible...

Hot or Not: early performers, disappointments

Let me introduce another new writer (his bio is coming soon) Nathan Mendolowitz. He’s a Giants fan but can root for the A’s on occasion. He will be doing installments of “Hot or Not” of Nor Cal baseball and much more. Sorry ladies, he doesn’t rate them on levels of attractiveness. by Nathan Mendolowitz Barry Zito – Hot Who would have thought Barry Zito would be the shining...

Giants 7, Cubs 6

Pablo Sandoval hit a two-run double in a four-run fourth inning and the San Francisco Giants rallied from an early five-run deficit to beat the Chicago Cubs 7-6 Thursday. Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong walked with the bases loaded to tie it in the fifth and Angel Pagan followed with a sacrifice fly, helping the World Series champion Giants win their fourth in a row. Cubs shortstop...

Bumgarner pitches Giants past Cubs

Madison Bumgarner allowed two runs while pitching neatly into the seventh inning, Marco Scutaro had three hits and the San Francisco Giants held off the Chicago Cubs 3-2 on Saturday. Pinch-hitter Dioner Navarro hit a two-out, two-run homer off Bumgarner in the seventh to pull the Cubs to 3-2. It was Navarro's second career pinch home run in two days, each hit from a different...

Nate Schierholtz and Hunter Pence

Interesting matchups abound in the Giants series, but the rightfielders in today’s game could be one of the more intriguing matchups. The comparison comes naturally from the fact that Nate Schierholtz and Hunter Pence were traded for each other last trade deadline. The comparison would seem to breakdown at that point. Pence has been a solid everyday rightfielder for his whole career...

Tommy Bahama showcases MLB legends

There is nothing quite like thinking about the glory days of Major League Baseball. When it was America’s pastime, talked about in the same sentence as apple pie, and names like Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays were already considered two of the best players the game has ever seen.  Tommy Bahama on the other hand, one of the most recognizable brands in the clothing industry,...

Rank Relief: A double dose at Wrigley

When you see a rank relief post you always have a good chance of the Cubs being involved – usually one the bad side.  Well today they played both parts.  The Cubs were looking at a 2-0 victory if they could hold off the Giants in the top of the 9th.  Well Kyuji Fujikawa would have none of that.  Cubs fans may have thought they got rid of this kind of thing with Carlos Marmol...
