Giants starting pitcher Tim Lincecum is scheduled to hit free agency at the end of the year and he figures to be a hot commodity on the open market. The Giants have not held contract discussions with Tim Lincecum, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. An executive estimated to Rosenthal that Lincecum may command a three-year deal worth $14-15 million per year on the open market. Lincecum's struggles have been well documented, but he has pitched well of late. In July, Lincecum had a 4.50 ERA, but don't let that fool you. That includes his outing against the Reds where he gave up eight runs in 3.2 innings. If you take that outing out of the equation, Lincecum's July ERA was a 2.56. With Lincecum showing signs of his old self, he could be one of the more coveted pitchers on the open market. He doesn't throw in the mid-to-upper 90's anymore, but he still is an effective pitcher. On the year, Lincecum is 6-11 with a 4.18 ERA and a 150/53 strikeout-to-walk ratio. On the open market, Lincecum figures to have plenty of suitors willing to pay top dollar for his services.

Top Ten Players the Giants May Target in the Offseason Part 2

*Here is Part 2 of the Top Ten Guys the Giants should sign in the offseason. Again, the whole article was really long, so I had to break it up. I apologize again for the inconvenience. Enjoy. 4. Ben Zobrist – IF/OF- I’ll be honest here. The only reason why Ben Zobrist is ranked higher than Justin Morneau, is because he’s cheaper, and more versatile, and the Giants love them...

San Francisco Giants: It’s All Down Hill From Here

  With the San Francisco Giants having a scheduled travel day, I found it appropriate to discuss the team’s 2013 struggles. A year ago, the Giants sat comfortably in first place with a commanding lead in the NL West. After capturing their second world series title in three years, the front office was focused on keeping the team intact. By signing Angel Pagan, Marco Scutaro and...

San Francisco Giants: starting rotation showing signs of life

After Sunday’s loss, the San Francisco Giants are sitting at the rock bottom of the NL West with a dismal 52-65 record. The season is over and at this point the club is playing purely for its pride. Today’s loss looks ugly on paper, as the Giants fell 10-2. However, it is important to consider that seven of those runs were given up after Matt Cain came out of the game. The bullpen...

Things Giants Fans Can Cheer For

Even in 2011, the San Francisco Giants were in it until late in the season…You have to go back to 2009 to find a season the Giants were out of it…which isn’t that long ago, come to think of it. Why can’t I remember how to handle a losing season? The Giants are in a three-way tie for the fifth pick in the draft right now (which would end them up being 7th, the way the tiebreakers...

Top Ten Players the Giants Should Target in the Offseason Part 1.

It has been a disappointing season for the San Francisco Giants to say the least. Teams have exploited their weaknesses in Left Field, and in the front end of the bullpen, as well as a tired, banged up starting pitching staff. And losing their center fielder and leadoff hitter doesn’t help either. While, rebuilding isn’t really the best option, as the Giants still have great...

Giants Stumble Late in Blowout Loss to O’s

The Giants got off to a quick start Sunday afternoon, but could not hold the lead late as they lost the game and the series to their orange and black rival Orioles. Matt Cain retired 14 of the first 15 batters he faced, but he and the bullpen could not hold a two-run lead as they melted down in the later innings of the game in an eventual 10-2 loss. “It got a little ugly there...

The Giants 2013 MLB Slapdown Tour Continues

The funniest thing I heard recently was a comment made by a caller on a local San Francisco Giants sports talk radio show. The question was, what to do with a 52-65 team with the 7th worst run differential in baseball (-69), 15.5 games out of first place in the NL West? The caller emphatically stated that "You can't just blow up this team, the Giants only need some tweaking...

Racist San Francisco Giants Fan Throws Banana at Baltimore's Adam Jones During Game

It is just despicable when fans get out of hand. In the last couple of seasons we have seen countless clips of idiots running onto the field, and there have been too many incidents of fan on fan violence in the stands. But while those acts can be attributed to poor impulse control and the heat of the moment (not too mention an unhealthy amount of alcohol) what one fan did in San...

Adam Jones alleges a Giants fan threw a banana at him during Sunday’s game

Not cool, Giants fans. I want to thank whatever slapdick threw that banana towards my direction in CF in the last inning. Way to show ur class u *******. — Adam Jones (@SimplyAJ10) August 11, 2013 I love how some ppl are defending the actions by someone today. Shows how u really are also. All good wit me. I just #StayHungry — Adam Jones (@SimplyAJ10) August 12, 2013 Good chance...

Giants-Nationals Preview

Gio Gonzalez and Madison Bumgarner pitched to a virtual stalemate the first time they opposed each other this year. With the San Francisco Giants continuing to struggle offensively, more pressure could be on Bumgarner the second time around. The two left-handers match up again as the Giants visit the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night. Both pitchers were impressive in Washington...

Pence delivers, Giants hold on to beat Orioles 3-2

Giants manager Bruce Bochy didn’t always play Brandon Belt against left-handed pitchers. He sure as heck didn’t bat him third in the lineup. On Saturday Bochy did both. It was an obvious decision since Belt was the only guy in the lineup making loud contact. It seems like forever since the Giants have gotten more than one hitter in a hot streak at a time. So even when Belt...
