SF Giants Rumors: Payroll Staying Around The Same, Still Room For A Splash?

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says Brian Sabean revealed to him that the 2012 payroll will be “in and around” $125 million, which means no increase over last year. That’s not breaking news, as we posted that here last week, but the new kicker is Sabean told him he could go to ownership and ask for more money based on a specific player they’re targeting. ...

End-of-season prospect roundup

It’s been a while since I took a look at the Giants’ farm system, so I figured I’d do an end-of-season roundup. These aren’t rankings per se, but rather, a rundown of few of the Giants’ top prospects, with notes on other guys to watch for. Back in late July, I posted a midseason top 25 list; since then, the system’s undergone quite a few changes. Zack Wheeler and Thomas...

Beard Goes Bird for NBA 2K

Brian Wilson does many weird things that endear him to Giants fans. Like, for instance, going back to the future. Or giving virtual tours. Our latest example of the Beard's wackiness? His appearance in an NBA 2K commercial, dressed up in full Celtics gear, which you can see at the 17-second mark in the video below. Curious why an icon of the Bay Area is dressed as a 1986...

Panda Is Giants Nominee for Aaron Award

2011 wasn't a great offensive year for the Giants, and that's the team's biggest problem heading into the offseason. But we can still look back at Pablo Sandoval's resurgent season last year and smile, plus hope that he ends up winning the Hank Aaron Award. As it stands, he's the Giants nominee for the Aaron Award, which recognizes the best offensive player in...

Giants Lose Trademark Game

 The San Francisco Giants lost one more game this year, and it was one most folks probably missed. The team was rejected by the U.S. Patent and Trademark office when they tried to get the rights to the San Francisco logo that has been worn on their uniforms 1993. It's a similar script that's found on all those tourist-trap shirts around town.  The trademark was granted...

Fantastic Brian Wilson Commercial for NBA 2K12

Click here to watch video Yesterday we showed you the new NBA 2K12 promo commercial that featured a bunch of celebs discussing the greatest NBA team ever. Today it's all Brian Wilson (relief pitcher for the San francisco Giants) and all 1986 Celtics. He does a very solid Will Ferrell/Zach Galifianakis impression if you ask me.

October 3rd

If there is one date that stands out for the Giants, it is October 3rd.   I usually think about it every year, but for some reason, did not this time around.   Chris Jaffe didn’t forget and has a nice piece on that date for baseball, as well as the Giants.   Check it out at The Hardball Times, and should we send a copy to Joe Morgan?
