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 can be loaded with incentives. It’s a big risk to offer arbitration and risk him getting paid another $8.5 million or so and not be able to pitch in 2013.
Since 2010, Sergio Romo has the lowest WHIP (0.85) in the Major Leagues. Romo was the Giants closer as the season starting winding down and the entire 2012 playoffs.
The Yankees have claimed backup catcher Eli Whiteside off of waivers from the Giants. There really isn’t much need for Whiteside, as the Giants have backup catcher Hector Sanchez.
Buster Posey has won the players choice award for NL 2012 Comeback Player of the Year.
Melky Cabrera will receive a full...
BEST OF MAXIM
Gary Brown is one of the Giants top prospects, and is the potential center fielder of the future. After destroying pitching in High A San Jose, he ran into a bit of a wall in AA Richmond.
This morning Baseball Prospectus has him as their prospect profile (for free!). It's a nice little glimpse into what has been going on with him if you haven't been following his...
The baseball players' union concluded Melky Cabrera's agents didn't know about a scheme to create a phony website in a defense of his positive drug test but said they failed to properly manage the employees of the firm who tried to carry out the scheme.
Brothers Sam and Seth Levinson, the heads of ACES Inc., were probed by the Major League Baseball Players Association...
San Francisco Giants fans got rowdy following their team’s World Series win over the Detroit Tigers, and at least one fan has lost his life in the aftermath.
CBS San Francisco reports that 37-year-old Sean Moffitt has passed away, due to injuries he suffered during Giants fans’ celebration of last week’s world championship. Giants fans took to the streets following the decisive...
Do you see random sh$% while driving to work and think it needs to be seen by the masses? Does the guy who sits next to you at work look like a tool on a daily basis? Does your dog lick his balls in an odd fashion? Is your neighbor working on some sort of outer space vehicle behind his shed? We want your WTF photos.

Although the World Series is behind us, that doesn't mean there is a shortage of musical tributes done by San Francisco Giants fans.
In case you forgot, singer Ashkon became a viral sensation in 2010 for his remaking of "Don't Stop Believing" for the Giants World Series run against the Texas Rangers.
Now, here is his 2012 version using "We Are the Champions...
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...
What do you get when you mix a couple of World Series heroes with a bunch of middle-of-the-road middle infield free agents? Why, this top 10 free agent list of course!
1. Marco Scutaro - For over half of the season, Marco Scutaro looked like a baseball player in decline. Over 415 plate appearances for the Rockies, Scutaro hit .271/.324/.361. Then, after a trade to the Giants...
With all apologies to Meat Loaf for the admittedly ripped off title,
after watching the best hitter in baseball barely move as the third
strike crossed the plate to end the 2012 baseball season, my mind turned
to what seems to be the question of the day in sports and I wondered to
myself what the legacy of the Giants will be in this current era. At
this present time, I...
For those who don't know, Money For Nothing is a wonderfully terrible John Cusak movie from the early 90's. Look it up, watch it, live it. But also realize this article has nothing to do with John Cusak or that movie. Instead, we are talking about the formerly suspended, formerly great, formerly inspirational Melky Cabrera. Cabrera was suspended for 50 games for...
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...
Giving themselves another backup catching option, the New York Yankees have claimed Eli Whiteside off waivers from the San Francisco Giants.
The 33-year-old was 1 for 11 in 12 games for the Giants this year, when he hit .224 with one homer and 20 RBIs in 60 games at Triple-A Fresno. He appeared in 56 games for San Francisco's World Series champions in 2010 and 82 last year....
