Found February 27, 2013 on San Francisco Giants Baseball (SF Giants...:
Yesterday the San Francisco Giants sent Tim Lincecum to the mound, and it was the first time he faced live hitters since the World Series. Lincecum allowed three runs, but told manager Bruce Bochy that he was happy with his outing. Bochy was also satisfied, says Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle. “I think Timmy threw the ball well,” Bochy said. “He had a good rhythm. Pitching out of the stretch, he looked comfortable. He had good stuff today. Obviously, he got out of sync last year. He knows it. He worked hard cleaning it up a little bit.” Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News says before the Giants took a bus to Glendale yesterday, they had BP at Scottsdale Stadium. Outfielder Hunter Pence was swinging out of his shoelaces, and launched one out of the stadium in his final swing. I think Pence is going to have a much better year for the Giants in 2013. He’s already found his comfort zone, and I’m sure is motivated since it’s also contract year for him. Andrew Baggar...

The Unique Power-Speed Combos of Braun, Pence and Jones

Of the positive events for hitters, home runs and infield hits are polar opposites, and not just in terms of impact. The home run is the realm of the beefed-up slugger, the lumberers. The infield hit is reserved for the wisps, the sprinters, the scrawny slap hitters. Unsurprisingly, there is a weak negative correlation between home runs and infield hits on a per-plate appearance...

Total Run Index: Starting Pitchers

Source: Jamie Squire/Getty Images North America Those that have been following my index series will notice how I treat starting pitchers differently. We should note this before we move onto the “grand table” as I am want to call it. Pitching is the most difficult position to get a handle on in fantasy baseball and in real baseball for that matter. Pitchers are fickle and subject...
