Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com says (via Twitter) there’s some teams that are checking out Freddy Sanchez‘s medical records. Sanchez was only with the San Francisco Giants for a few seasons, but I’m a huge Freddy fan. Which means, it would be hard for me to see him in another uniform. I actually thought he would probably just retire after missing all of the 2012 season.   Freddy has been with the Giants since July 29, 2009. That’s when the Giants pulled the trigger by trading away pitching prospect Tim Alderson to the pirates for Sanchez. Sanchez only played one full season with the Giants and that was the year they first brought the World Series Championship to San Francisco (2010)! Sanchez hit .292 with 7 homers, 47 RBI, and 55 runs scored. The guy was clutch with the bat, and was the perfect guy to have at the plate for a hit-and-run. On June 10, 2011, Sanchez tried to make a diving play and dislocated his shoulder against the Reds at AT&T Park. He ended up having to have season-...

SF Giants Rumors Interview With Andrew Susac

During the 2012 season, I attended a San Jose Giants game to interview San Francisco Giants catching prospect Andrew Susac. Susac went on to hit .244 in San Jose with 9 homers, 52 RBI, and 58 runs scored. Check out the video below to listen to the interview. I must admit, I did mess up by saying he was from the Bay Area. I guess Sacramento isn’t considered the Bay Area. Anyways...

SF Giants Rumors: Buster Posey Arbitration Eligible, Giants Closing In On Japanese Infielder Kensuke Tanaka

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says (via Twitter) there’s been no contract discussions between the San Francisco Giants and Buster Posey‘s agent.   Posey is entering his first of four years of arbitration. Which means he’s under the Giants control till the end of the 2016 season. He’s going to start getting paid now that he’s entering arbitration. I would...

Barry Bonds, The Hall of Fame Should Be Chanting Your Name

It’s that time of the year again, everyone is going to put in their two cents about which players should or shouldn’t be voted into the Hall of Fame. With that said, here’s my argument for one of the greatest baseball players to ever put on spikes. Yes, I’m sure you already knew I was talking about Barry Bonds. I can give you 762 reasons as to why the Home Run King should...

SF Giants Rumors: Giants Are Number 1 In Power Rankings

Finally the San Francisco Giants are getting some respect in the baseball world! Buster Olney of ESPN.com (video blog) explains why he has the Giants ranked number 1 in his offseason Power Rankings. Olney points out that despite the critics, it’s time to give the Giants credit after winning two championships in a three year span. They’ve done it by having the ability to win...

Voters disappoint with 2013 Baseball Hall of Fame class

The rumors had been floating around for a while, but, as a baseball fan, I hoped they were untrue.  The Baseball Hall of Fame voters were not going to vote anyone into the Hall of Fame in 2013.  Today, those rumors came to fruition.  On a charged ballot featuring the first time candidacy of Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, and Sammy Sosa, no one was elected into the Hall of Fame....

Report: Giants sign Japanese infielder to minor-league deal

The San Francisco Giants have signed Japanese second baseman Kensuke Tanaka to a minor-league contract, which is expected to include an invitation to spring training, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Tanaka, 31, is expected to be in the running to make the Giants' roster as a utility infielder after hitting .300 with three home runs and 13 stolen bases last season...

When Barry Bonds Made an Out

It was announced earlier today that Barry Bonds has not been voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Nobody was voted into the Hall of Fame, and there are several topics worthy of discussion, but I’m partial to the Bonds one, myself, because the voting results provide a reason to look at Bonds’ career statistics again. Asterisks or no asterisks, Bonds’ numbers are downright impossible...

Kyle Crick And Building The Scouting Profile

Kyle Crick enters 2013 as the top prospect in the San Francisco Giants organization. Having seen his final start of the 2012 season, I can attest to his having both the raw stuff and durable frame to eat innings at the Major League level. On a night where I saw him bad, Crick’s arsenal was awfully good. Seeing a great prospect on an off night presents an opportunity to discuss...
