San Francisco Giants Baseball (SF Giants...:
The San Francisco Giants start a three game series tonight in Milwaukee after taking three out of four from the Cubs in Chicago.
In the final game of the Cubs series, Hunter Pence came through like a champ! Pence was down to his last strike, and hit a homer to center field to tie the game in the 9th inning. The Giants did go on to win the game 10-7 in extra innings. The hometown guy (George Kontos) picked up the win, and closer Sergio Romo recorded his 7th save on the year.
Ex-Giant Nate Schierholtz received his ring from manager Bruce Bochy. Schierholtz also was trying to give some payback to the Giants for trading him in the Pence deal. Schierholtz went 5-for-12 in the series against the Giants with a homer and 2 RBI.
Infielder Nick Noonan picked up his first two RBI’s of his career on Sunday, congratulations Nick!
Brett Pill has returned from his rehab assignment and reinstated from the DL. He’s been optioned to the Fresno Grizzlies (via Giants tweet).
Pitcher Andrew K...
BEST OF MAXIM
WHO DEALT IT?
The Giants just called up Jean Machi on Wednesday, and it looks like the reliever is already becoming fast friends with Jose Mijares. Mijares just learned a brutal, sour lesson that the silent ones are always the deadliest. By the time the hot air had risen it was too late. We don’t think he’ll be sitting next to Machi in the bullpen anymore. And here’s more of the aftermath...
Alright, so which Giants pitcher did it? Was it Jose Mijares, who’s on the left and gets blamed for the fart, or was it Jean Machi, who was on the right and smelled it first?
The world may never find out.

MLB News: Jean Machi was recalled by the San Francisco Giants Tuesday from Triple-A Fresno. He is expected to pitch middle relief.
Fantasy Ramifications: Machi will be pitching middle relief, so he holds no real value in any fantasy baseball format.

MLB News: The San Francisco Giants placed pitcher Jeremy Affeldt on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 15. He will miss a minimum of two weeks. Jean Machi takes his place.
Fantasy Ramifications: Being that Affeldt is a middle reliever, as solid as he may be, the fantasy value just isn’t there. He should not be owned in any fantasy format.

Jeremy Affeldt has proven himself as one of the more valuable relievers in the game. At least for the San Francisco Giants. Affeldt was re-signed to a three-year, $21 million contract this offseason, so the Giants clearly feel he is valuable. Unfortunately, they will be without him for approximately three weeks.
According to Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area, Affeldt was...
Monday the San Francisco Giants activated first baseman Brett Pill from the 15-day disabled list and then immediately optioned him to Triple-A Fresno.

Maybe I don't watch National Geographic enough, but I don't think I've ever seen a Panda Bear jump let alone jump a fence. Saturday when the San Francisco Giants were playing the Chicago Cubs in Wrigley the fans got to see one when Pablo Sandoval went over the wall to make a catch.

Barry Zito has picked up right where he left off from last season, and so have the San Francisco Giants.
The World Series champions continue their road trip with a short trek north to Miller Park, where they open a three-game series Tuesday night against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Often maligned for underperforming after signing his seven-year, 126 million contract in 2007, Zito (2...
Or have I just gone plain insane? Fearing the impending Joey Votto 2012 injury to sink my team, I perhaps overcompensated a tad bit this year regarding my everyday players. By doing that, I neglected my starting pitching.
Ok. I only have five starting pitchers and three of them go on the same day.
This is not the wisest move you can make when playing head-to-head. So, it was time...
The 2013 season opening schedule for the World Champion San Francisco Giants looked like the it was put together as part of a blind tasting of Walmart brand vodkas.
That might explain why the winners of the 2012 World Series, a) opened on the road in Los Angeles (I suppose because Modesto doesn't have an MLB team); b) were almost immediately sent on another road trip, this...
The Lexington Legends had been the Low-A affiliate for the Houston Astros for quite some time. Walking around Whitaker Bank Park, you would see images of Hunter Pence and that one time Roger Clemens pitched there. Those images aren’t there anymore after the Astros bolted and the Royals came in. This is a little sad because this would have been the year to see the Low-A Astros team...
