Today is the day that the San Francisco Giants pitchers and catchers are taking the field. Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com says (via Twitter) presumed Opening Day starter Matt Cain leads the first bullpen group. Catching prospect Andrew Susac gets to catch Jeremy Affeldt‘s bullpen session.

Non-roster invitee Chad Gaudin is throwing to the National League’s MVP, Buster Posey. 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. He’s a good candidate for the long reliever role. He pitched in 46 games for the Marlins in 2012, and posted a 4.54 ERA.
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...

Today is day two of Spring Training for the San Francisco Giants pitchers and catchers. Position players will check in Friday, and Saturday will be the first full squad workout.
After Tim Lincecum had his first bullpen session yesterday, Lincecum said he’s “definitely ahead of where I was last year” in how his body feels and his delivery...

Today is the day we have all been waiting for! The San Francisco Giants pitchers and catchers reported to Spring Training. Position players are scheduled to report on Friday.
Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com says (via Twitter) the Dodgers and Reds were both interested in outfielder Andres Torres. Torres told his agent not to hold...
Andres Torres won the World Series in 2010 with the Giants as the starting center fielder but spent 2012 with the Mets after being traded for the Giants’ current starting center fielder Angel Pagan.
Torres is now back with the Giants this season to compete with Gregor Blanco for the starting spot in left field.
Torres reportedly had interest from a few teams, specifically the...
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...
Citing statistics from FanGraphs, San Francisco Giants general manager Brian Sabean is certain faded ace Tim Lincecum has forever lost his blazing fastball. Lincecum (10-15, 5.18 ERA), who has gone 79-56 with a 3.31 ERA since debuting in “The City … Continue reading →
Today was day one of a 231-day odyssey. Beginning today, the Giants defend their world championship. Pitchers and catchers take their first steps on a long and arduous path. So many uncertainties lurk ahead for every team and player, that prediction is futile. Essentially, everyone has a shot at the title today.
The Giants’ pitching staff remains ostensibly the same as the World...
The San Francisco Giants decided to bring back the core of players that carried them to the 2012 World Championship. Angel Pagan was one of those players.It took Pagan a long time to finally earn a full-time job in the majors as his age-31 season in 2013 will be just his fourth full year, but don’t hold that against him. He makes living mostly with his legs and has developed a...
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...
The following is an interview conducted by Jeremy Dorn, an Editorial Intern at San Francisco Magazine and an experienced sports blogger with a number of great credits (and several disturbing ones).
Through no fault of his own, Jeremy was born in the Bay Area but was raised a Los Angeles Dodger fan. Perhaps it was due to an unhealthy mix of Cap'n Crunch cereal and that white...
