Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com says (via Twitter) the San Francisco Giants have been receiving calls from teams inquiring about Brandon Belt. They don’t seem inclined to trade Belt, and say their goals are to re-sign Angel Pagan, Marco Scutaro and try to retain Jeremy Affeldt.
Bob Nightengale of USA Today says (via Twitter) the Giants are confident they will be able to resign Affeldt. It will likely be a 3-year deal.
Congratulations to Buster Posey on winning the 2012 Silver Slugger Award!

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com says San Francisco Giants GM Brian Sabean can guarantee that Hunter Pence will be with the Giants in 2013. However, Sabean can’t make the same guarantee for Brian Wilson. “Pence is going to be coming back,” said Sabean. “We think there are some things he can do to fix what went wrong this year. We like the player. We made a big trade to get him...
Gary Brown is one of the Giants top prospects, and is the potential center fielder of the future. After destroying pitching in High A San Jose, he ran into a bit of a wall in AA Richmond.
This morning Baseball Prospectus has him as their prospect profile (for free!). It's a nice little glimpse into what has been going on with him if you haven't been following his...
Outfielder Melky Cabrera became persona non grata with the San Francisco Giants after he was suspended in August for a positive drug test, but apparently not every team feels the same way about this year's All-Star Game Most Valuable Player. Cabrera, 28, is now a free agent, and the New York Post reported that at least five teams have expressed interest in his services. The...
San Francisco Giants fans got rowdy following their team’s World Series win over the Detroit Tigers, and at least one fan has lost his life in the aftermath.
CBS San Francisco reports that 37-year-old Sean Moffitt has passed away, due to injuries he suffered during Giants fans’ celebration of last week’s world championship. Giants fans took to the streets following the decisive...
It’s the small moves that make a season and a team.
I admit, when the Giants picked up Ryan Vogelsong, I thought it was to sell tickets in Fresno. I was wrong.
When the Giants found Pat Burrell on the scrap heap, I expected it to be a non-factor in anything. Nope.
Cody Ross? It seemed like sacrificing a roster spot to stop a rival. Well, not just.
Marco Scutaro? A fine...
I don't think I've seen an episode of Survivor since the days Elizabeth Hasselbeck wasn't a Hasselbeck. That's been about 63 seasons ago and somehow the show is still around. Evidently, former San Francisco Giants second basemen Jeff Kent was booted off the island last night and was none too pleased. While you can watch the entire tribal council thingy here...
We continue on the west coast this time around to take a look at the hotly contested National League West. The San Francisco Giants have won two World Series titles in the last three seasons, but they have hardly dominated. Each race has come down to the final couple of weeks in the last three years. As many as three teams have a very strong claim to the 2013 crown, so the Giants...
With the World Series win still fresh on most fans minds. It’s now time for the San Francisco Giants front office to start focusing on 2013.
It’s going to be a big decision for them to decide if Brian Wilson should be offered arbitration or non-tender him. Wilson made $8.5 million in 2012. The Giants could be considering a deal that doesn’t guarantee as much for 2013 but...
