Here’s a few nuggets for all you die-hard San Francisco Giants fans. The G-men will be starting a three game series tonight in Washington against the Nationals.
Catcher Guillermo Quiroz was DFA’d, and has accepted his triple-A assignment and will report to the Fresno Grizzlies today.
Manager Bruce Bochy told Jim Bowden that he thinks Angel Pagan looks great, and is at full speed taking BP. Pagan could possibly start his rehab assignment later this week, reports Bowden (via Twitter).
Steve Kroner of the San Francisco Chronicle (via Twitter) chatted with outfielder Roger Kieschnick about wearing No. 22, worn by Jack Clark and Will Clark: “It’s definitely a special number. I’m very humbled by it,” says Kieschnick.

Last night infielder Joaquin Arias didn’t let the rain delay game stop him from having a four hit night. However, his monster night wasn’t enough to get the San Francisco Giants in the win column. They fell to the Nationals 4-2.

*Here is Part 2 of the Top Ten Guys the Giants should sign in the offseason. Again, the whole article was really long, so I had to break it up. I apologize again for the inconvenience. Enjoy.
4. Ben Zobrist – IF/OF- I’ll be honest here. The only reason why Ben Zobrist is ranked higher than Justin Morneau, is because he’s cheaper, and more versatile, and the Giants love them...
Sometimes, things happen in this game in which one just cannot wrap their head around.
Case and point: The 2013 San Francisco Giants. Raise your hand if you would’ve guessed the team that has two of the last three World Series Championships would be in last place in August and 14 games under .500.
That’s what I thought.

The San Francisco Giants were reviewing the surveillance footage from Sunday’s game because Orioles outfielder Adam Jones said a fan threw a banana at him during the game. However, the Giants couldn’t identify the person that threw the banana at Jones. They also apologized to Jones and the Orioles, reports John Shea of the San Francisco...
With the San Francisco Giants having a scheduled travel day, I found it appropriate to discuss the team’s 2013 struggles. A year ago, the Giants sat comfortably in first place with a commanding lead in the NL West. After capturing their second world series title in three years, the front office was focused on keeping the team intact. By signing Angel Pagan, Marco Scutaro and...
It has been a disappointing season for the San Francisco Giants to say the least. Teams have exploited their weaknesses in Left Field, and in the front end of the bullpen, as well as a tired, banged up starting pitching staff. And losing their center fielder and leadoff hitter doesn’t help either. While, rebuilding isn’t really the best option, as the Giants still have great...
So… here’s something that quietly happened on Tuesday in Giants land:
doesn't seem like a trade candidate at this moment, but Barry Zito has cleared waivers. 7 weeks left on $126M, 7-yr deal.

MLB’s waiver trade deadline is Aug. 31. But I can’t come up with any scenario where a team would be crazy enough to trade for Zito...
The funniest thing I heard recently was a comment made by a caller on a local San Francisco Giants sports talk radio show. The question was, what to do with a 52-65 team with the 7th worst run differential in baseball (-69), 15.5 games out of first place in the NL West?
The caller emphatically stated that "You can't just blow up this team, the Giants only need some tweaking...
Right in the feels.
Here’s the situation: last night the San Francisco Giants, trailing 6-1 to the Washington Nationals begin to mount a daring and valiant late-inning comeback, scoring three runs in the top of the 8th and one more in the 9th. Hunter “How Is This Guy A Baseball Player?” Pence is at the dish with runners on first and second, two outs.
Little did the Giants know...
The search for answers in the tragic disappearance of the San Francisco Giants ability to win baseball games continues.
Since the start of the 2013 season the local Bay Area sports media has come up with a series of theories in their attempt to explain exactly why the Giantes 2013 season ended faster than Lindsay Lohan's attendance at a rehab class.
Trouble is, the local...
Giants starting pitcher Tim Lincecum is scheduled to hit free agency at the end of the year and he figures to be a hot commodity on the open market.
The Giants have not held contract discussions with Tim Lincecum, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. An executive estimated to Rosenthal that Lincecum may command a three-year deal worth $14-15 million per year on the open...
Gio Gonzalez and Madison Bumgarner pitched to a virtual stalemate the first time they opposed each other this year.
With the San Francisco Giants continuing to struggle offensively, more pressure could be on Bumgarner the second time around.
The two left-handers match up again as the Giants visit the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night.

It was a soggy victory, but the Washington Nationals’ 4-2 win over the San Francisco Giants was a victory nonetheless, giving them a modest four-game winning streak for just the third time this season.
The Nationals sandwiched nine innings of baseball around a 77-minute rain delay, and kept their offense humming dimly throughout, even after most of the crowd had been...
