San Francisco Giants Baseball (SF Giants...:
The San Francisco Giants finished a 7-3 homestand, and then were off to see Melky Cabrera and the Jays in Toronto. Manager Bruce Bochy presented Cabrera with his World Series ring in a private setting. Bochy said Melky wanted it that way, and Melky says Bochy wanted it that way. I think it’s safe to say that Melky didn’t want the presentation to be public with the way he left the team last year.
Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle say (via Twitter) Melky didn’t address his Giants teammates when he was suspended because “somebody” said it would be a bad idea. However, Melky refused to say who the “somebody” was.
Melky isn’t putting up the kind of numbers he was last year for the Giants thus far. However, he did light the Giants up for four hits in last night’s game. To make matters worse, the Giants also lost the game 10-6.

If you’re looking for some good San Francisco Giants talk. You should follow Marty Lurie. Today he sent out a tweet to get fans baseball juices flowing. Lurie said (via Twitter) it’s time to pull Ryan Vogelsong from the rotation. “He is killing the ‘pen & the affect on the rest of the staff is not worth another start.”

It has been 273 days since the Giants have seen Melky Cabrera. He was caught, and that was that.
The Giants were surging and had just traded for the Phillies’ slugger Hunter Pence. Cabrera was leading the league in triples (10), was second in batting average (.346) and was on pace for around 230 hits last year before he was suspended for PED use.
The San Francisco Giants lost Melky Cabrera to a swarm of controversy during the 2012 regular season.

Giants reliever Jeremy Affeldt is an all-around good guy — or dumb, depending on who you ask.
Affeldt was set to earn $4 million in 2010 as part of a two-year, $10 million contract, but someone made a $500,000 mistake. When Affeldt’s 2010 salary was rewritten into his new contract with the Giants, someone put $4.5 million instead of the $4 million he was supposed to be paid....
It looks like the Giants may soon stop having faith in all of its starting five, with Ryan Vogelsong being the first pitcher to take a fall.
It’s been hard to watch the pitching fail this season. Maybe it’s our fault for expecting so much…but wow, this isn’t just a few rough starts now. Cain and Lincecum at least have had a couple of good starts recently, but it’s not...
The San Francisco Giants are in town (or country, I guess) to play the refurbished, but still terrible Toronto Blue Jays.
During the pre-game armistice ritual of batting practice, the Giants affably chunky 3rd baseman, Pablo “Kung Fu Panda” Sandoval showed off his many tattoos to the Blue Jay shortstop Munenori “Energy Boy” Kawasaki. “Energy Boy” expressed his amazement...
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera underwent an MRI on Wednesday, apparently after dealing with soreness in his hamstring since the start of the season. Sportsnet's Shi Davidi tweeted the results of the MRI on Tuesday evening, saying that Cabrera had problems in both his quad and hamstring:

Don’t look now but the Toronto Blue Jays have won 4 games in a row, including a dominate 2 game mini-series sweep against the World Champion San Francisco Giants. The Blue Jays outscored the Giants 21 to 9 banging out 29 hits in the two games played at the Rogers Centre .

Whether you agree with the decision or not former San Francisco Giant and current Blue Jay Melky Cabrera will in fact receive a world series ring despite having no actual contribution in the Series due to a suspension over use of a banned substance.

The 2013 National League West simply will not stand still and cooperate. And it's annoying to the national sports media who are scrambling to do their best to write this season's pre-packaged NL West story-- i.e., which team will finish ahead of the San Francisco Giants.
Most pre-season predictions about the NL West are disappearing faster than executive careers at the...
The San Francisco Giants have crossed the border for a series against the Toronto Blue Jays. Whenever two teams who rarely play each other face off it makes for an interesting batting practice. Well Pablo Sandoval and Munenori Kawasaki got together and it was safe to say that Kawasaki was left speechless. Pablo decided to show Munenori his tattoo sleeve on his left arm and well...
Though they had Marco Scutaro only for a brief time, the Colorado Rockies might regret sending him to the San Francisco Giants.
Scutaro has ripped apart Colorado pitching since that trade - as have many of his teammates while the Giants have dominated this NL West rivalry - and he's on a roll going into a four-game set at Coors Field starting Thursday night.
