Gaudin is throwing hard in his first bullpen session, says Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle (via Twitter). Gaudin is looking to impress in hopes of breaking camp with the Giants.

Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News (via Twitter) says Tim Lincecum‘s catcher for his first bullpen session is with Posey. I’m sure manager Bruce Bochy is going to try to pair them up a...

SF Giants Spring 2013: New Energy and a Familiar Question

Spring Training for the San Francisco Giants is getting as predictable as Tommy Lasorda's favorite ethnic food. Or Alex Rodriguez ruining yet another very expensive lie-detector machine. Really, what would Spring in Scottsdale, Arizona be without Willie Mays and Will Clark roaming the clubhouse and batting cages, casually dispensing wisdom and humor? And once again San Francisco...

2013 Top 10 Prospects: 7 Through 4

Unlike last year, we won’t be doing a special comic for number 1, so four prospects today. It might seem like I’m down on a lot of prospects this year.  Well, to be perfectly clear, 2012 was not a good year for Giants prospects.  Many top prospects had disappointing years, at best.  Only Kyle Crick and Clayton Blackburn really had huge years. That said, I still like the farm...
