Found September 11, 2013 on Minus Twenty-Two:
This supposedly comes from a ski shop in Sacramento. To be fair, I’m pretty sure I saw Barry Zito out there playing and decidedly not taking the summer off. He’s just terrible. As of writing, in case you needed the nausea-inducing reminder, your defending champion Giants are 66-80, in last place and 20 games out of first place. The offseason is near, Giants fans. Just a little longer until the misery ends. [photo by @nickvanexelent via Field of Teams]

Giants pitcher blames his poor season on the WBC

Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong has a nifty excuse for his struggles in 2013. It's not the broken finger that he suffered in the middle of May, it's not the fact that he's 36, it's not the fact that some fortunate peripherals pointed to an implosion. No, Vogelsong has "some questions" about whether or not his struggles are because of his participation in the...

SF Giants pull bubble gum prank on photographer (Video)

The San Francisco Giants pulled the classic bubble gum prank on a photographer during Tuesday night's game at AT&T Park. The CSN broadcast crew saw the bubble gum on top of the photographer's hat during the top of the second, with the photographer having no clue he was being pranked. The likely culprits were either Chad Gaudin or Tim Lincecum, neither of which...

End of Season Post-Mortem: 2013 San Francisco Giants

Here we are, folks: the End of Season Post-Mortem series. If you're new here (which about 50% of our reader base is in comparison to last year), here's a brief explanation: after a team is eliminated from playoff contention, we're going to put their season under a microscope and look at just what the hell went wrong, what went right, and so on and so forth. The goal is...

Giants skipper Bochy: Must be fun to be a Dodger

LOS ANGELES Bruce Bochy might know his way around the NL West better than any other manager in baseball. The Giants' skipper has won six division titles and spent his entire 19-year managerial career with the Padres and Dodgers. Bochy has seen a lot in the NL West, but a run like the Dodgers' isn't something he's seen before. A 55-18 mark and from worst-to-first...

Giants to activate Jeremy Affeldt, Chad Gaudin still a few days from return

The San Francisco Giants are set to activate reliever Jeremy Affeldt from the disabled list, according to Eric Gilmore of MLB.com. Affeldt has been sidelined since late July with a groin strain but threw his third simulated game on Tuesday and was pleased with his performance. Gilmore also writes that Chad Gaudin, who has been on the DL with carpal tunnel syndrome, still needs...

Pence's big night not enough as Giants lose

Hunter Pence joked with Giants third base coach Tim Flannery before Tuesday night's game that perhaps he was due for a big hit or two. Or three. Or four. Problem was, Michael Cuddyer had two of his own - and they both cleared the fence as the Colorado Rockies rallied for a 9-8 win against San Francisco. Pence hit a three-run homer in the first inning, an RBI double in the...

Hope for the Hopeless: San Francisco Giants

Next up: the San Francisco Giants. After World Championships in 2010 and 2012, Giants fans were looking for another trip to the...

Giants' Ryan Vogelsong wondering if WBC hurt him

35-year-old right-handed Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong did everything but outright blame his participation in the World Baseball Classic as a possible explanation for his horrid season according to Aaron Gleeman of NBC Sports. A broken finger swinging at a pitch on May 20th is what really did him in. "I’m just not sure. The only way we’ll have an answer is to have...

Yusmeiro Petit: Just Who Is This Guy?

Is it just me, or are Giants fans getting a little spoiled with the no-hitters and perfect games and near-misses in recent years? After a no-hitter drought that lasted 33 years, since John “The Count” Montesfusco blanked the Braves in 1976, the Giants have now had two no-hitters and one perfect game in the past five seasons. Jonathan Sanchez snapped the no no-no streak in 2009...

Giants rally for 4-3 win over Rockies

Marco Scutaro and Brandon Belt hit consecutive RBI singles in the eighth inning to help the San Francisco Giants edge the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Wednesday. The Giants loaded the bases with one out against Matt Belisle (5-7), and Scutaro followed with a tying single into right field. Belt's hit drove in Angel Pagan and gave San Francisco a 4-3 lead. Guillermo Moscoso (2-2)...
