With Spring Training vastly approaching, Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com shared with us the San Francisco Giants non-roster invitees.
There is seventeen pitchers, five catchers, six infielders and two outfielders that have been invited to camp. These are the non-roster players. All players on the 40-man roster automatically receive big league camp invites.
Via @kyliehults on Twitter comes this answer about Giants closer Sergio Romo and Giants closer emeritus Brian Wilson on Tuesday’s “Jeopardy” episode. I wonder what the correct question is. “What is a nose ring?” “What is a Mike Tyson tattoo?” Man, I’m stumped. [H/T Sergio Romo]

Outfielder Roger Kieschnick was the San Francisco Giants‘ third-round draft pick in 2008 out of Texas Tech. In ’09, Kieschnick was a Cal League All-Star and shined in San Jose hitting .296 with 23 home runs and 110 RBI. Since then however, Kieschnick has struggled with some nagging back injuries which limited him to only 60 games in 2010...

It’s funny that now all three of these guys will be on the same team in San Francisco. It’s like the Giants let the Mets borrow these guys and gave us Pagan...
While San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy said general
manager Brian Sabean decides which players the team signs, he wouldn’t call the
“door’s closed” on free agent right-hander Brian Wilson, according to Chris Haft of MLB.com.

After a gruesome injury ended his 2011 season a little less than two months in, Buster Posey showed what an elite player he is in 2012, returning to not only lead the Giants to another World Series, but he also lead the majors in hitting, was the first Giant to drive in 100 runs in a season since Barry Bonds, and he won the National League...
Candlestick Park, the iconic home of the San Francisco Giants from 1960 to 1999, will be demolished after the conclusion of the 2013 NFL season. Known mostly for the fog, the dampness and swirling winds, the ballpark was the scene of numerous famous – and a couple of infamous – events. Here then are [...]
Well now we get to the fun stuff. That’s right, today we will discuss the “The Bullpen Mafia” as Clevelanders have so affectionately branded the Indians relief corps. Outside of maybe Brian Wilson and Sergio Romo in San Francisco, the Tribe probably has the most unique, fun-loving bunch of characters to ever occupy a major league bullpen. The IBI's Jake Dungan continues...
Yep, so everyone who was involved in that 2011 deal between the New York Mets and the San Francisco Giants are now on the Giants, and the two players traded to New York are back on rather inexpensive deals, at that. Oh, and the Giants won the World Series.
So, LOL Mets. Angel Pagan got pretty damn good when he came to the Giants, and both Andres Torres and Ramon Ramirez were...
