  Credit: Steven Robles – SF Giants Rumors Today is the first day of cuts in Spring Training for the San Francisco Giants. They’ve sent pitchers Fabio Castillo, Edward Concepcion, Justin Fitzgerald, Jose Valdez, Josh Osich, infielder Joe Panik and catcher Andrew Susac to Minor League Camp, says Giants Beat Writer Chris Haft (via Twitter). In another Haft tweet, he says infielder Angel Villalona has been optioned to the San Jose Giants roster (Class A). None of this news should be a surprise to anyone. The team is pretty much set, except for a bullpen arm or two and bench roles. However, I sure would have loved to see Panik, Susac and Villalona get more playing time for the G-men this spring. Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says the Giants seem to be concerned about Sergio Romo‘s long outing yesterday for Team Mexico. Romo threw 26 pitches and ended up with a blown save. After watching the highlights, I wouldn’t blame Romo for the blown save. An average outfielder playi...

SF Giants Rumors: Tim Lincecum, Chad Gaudin, Brett Pill

  Credit: Steven Robles – SF Giants Rumors Today is the day that Tim Lincecum was scheduled to return to the mound from his blister injury. He wasn’t ready to go, but did manage to get a bullpen session in. To me that’s still putting in work, so I’m good with that! Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News says (via Twitter) Lincecum’s bullpen session went well, and he’s...

Brian Wilson Spotted At Disneyland Rocking Buzz Lightyear Gear

I’m not going to lie, I enjoy Brian Wilson’s schtick. The dude is at Disneyland in a Buzz Lightyear zip-up yet he’s able to maintain this menacing look that only a closer could possess. Speaking of which; I had no idea where or who Brian Wilson played for.. I researched it and the answer was no one. FYI – Free-agent reliever Brian Wilson is unlikely to sign with a new team...

Barry Bonds throws out first pitch at Malibu Little League’s opening day

Barry Bonds is a man of the people. Not only has the former slugger taken up cycling in retirement, but he’s also giving back to the community. Bonds, who has a residence in Southern California, threw out the first pitch at Malibu Little League’s opening day last weekend, The Malibu Times reports. Bonds reportedly was there to support his godson, who, at 11, is playing Little...

It Doesn’t Matter…Does It?

So, Sergio Romo blew the save and Mexico lost a shocker to Italy. Well, he kinda blew it.  Here’s the play. … Well, it was blown even without the drop.  Deep fly ball to left with a man on third and one out, the game would’ve been tied. Yeah, but that’s tied, not lost.  I mean, come on, the left fielder should’ve had that ball! Yeah, but Romo shouldn’t have given up...

Tim Lincecum scratched from another spring start

Tim Lincecum has been scratched from his scheduled start today. It will be the second consecutive spring start that the 28-year-old has missed. Lincecum has been dealing with a blister on his pitching hand but should be ready to go in a couple of days. In his first spring start Lincecum struggled allowing three runs and four hits in 1 1/3 innings. The Giants will hope for better...

“Pretty Much Retired” Huff Stuff

It sounds like the Yankees have one more name to take off of the list of potential Mark Teixeira replacements. Aubrey Huff is saying he is “pretty much retired.” Although earlier in the off-season he sounded like he still wanted to play, not surprisingly, there was not much interest in a 36-year-old first baseman coming off of a 87 wRC+ in 2011 and a 76 wRC+ in 2012. That should...

Italy rallies for 6-5 win over Mexico at WBC

Anthony Rizzo hit a two-run double off San Francisco Giants closer Sergio Romo in the ninth inning and Jason Grilli escaped a bases-loaded jam in the bottom half to help Italy rally to beat Mexico 6-5 in the opening game of Pool D in the World Baseball Classic on Thursday. Romo (0-1) entered to a loud ovation from the Mexican fans, but gave up three hits, the last a fly ball by...

WBC: Mexico v. USA Postgame

Approximately 44,000 screaming Mexicans packed Chase field as the United States took on team Mexico in round one of the 2013 World Baseball Classic. All the star power (with the exception of Adrian Gonzalez and Sergio Romo) was on the American side, but the fans and final score went to Mexico.  US starter R.A. Dickey struggled early, especially when trying to throw his knuckleball...
