Found October 13, 2013 on Nation Orange:
Trivia time! This year Giants outfielders Gregor Blanco, Jeff Francoeur, Angel Pagan, Hunter Pence, Juan Perez, and Andres Torres combined for 23 outfield assists. Can you name who led the team in outfield assists? Was it Pence, who played all 162 games? Francoeur or Perez, who played only a handful of games, but have cannon arms? No cheating!

Giants Offseason: Who’s Staying? Who’s Going? What to Expect

Coming off of their incredible World Series run in 2012, 2013 didn’t go exactly how the San Francisco Giants imagined. Two World Championships in three years covers a lot of wrongs, but fans will expect more from the team and front office come 2014. But what moves should they make to assure that they reclaim their National League West crown? There are a lot of returning players...

San Francisco Giants 2013 Cy Young: Madison Bumgarner

A few days ago we crowned our 2013 Giants MVP: Hunter Pence. Well, today it’s time for the Cy Young. And, as you probably could guess, it ain’t a very close race. Yup, our Cy Young winner for the 2013 San Francisco Giants is none other than Big Country . . . Madison Bumgarner. Despite being only 24 years-old, Bumgarner pitched like a season veteran all season long, matching...

Barry Zito thanks Giants fans in full page ad

Zito pulled off a classy move by taking out a full page ad in the San Francisco Chronicle to thank the fans of the San Francisco Giants for their support over his seven years with the organization. Were there bad times? Of course, and Zito even admitted as much in the ad. Anytime you’re given a seven year, $126 million deal there are certain expectations that you inherit and Im...

Barry Zito Buys a Full Page Ad to Thank the Fans

We thought that Barry Zito's performance in game #162 was the proper send-off. He entered in the 8th, faced longtime friend, ex-teammate, and retiring veteran Mark Kotsay, struck him out, and left to the ovation that he truly deserved. But now he has truly put the feather in the cap of his exit. After the fans sent the lovable lefty out in style, Zito re-paid them in...

Zito’s contract was inescapably...

Best and Worst Case Scenarios for Giants in 2014

With our favorite non-Giants teams out of the playoffs, we're shifting our focus from back to Giants baseball . . . with a little rooting interest on the side for anyone playing the Los Angeles Dodgers. Okay, a lot of rooting interest. Anyway, it's already time to start thinking about the floor and the ceiling for next year's San Francisco Giants. How good can...

Top 3 Moments of San Francisco Giants Season

What a year it was for us San Francisco Giants fans. There was the beginning, when expectations were high, following two championships in three seasons. There was the middle, when everything seemed to go wrong. And there was the end, where optimism resumed, and thinking ahead to 2014 became as trendy as rooting against the Dodgers. And in between, there were moments. So...

Boston Media-Strong

Yeah, that was actually said during the baseball broadcast by Joe Buck last night.  I mean, good for the New England area and all, but most of us get nauseated by the amount of coverage around them during the regular season. What are we waiting to talk about? Will Tim Lincecum come back? Will Javier Lopez get a better offer elsewhere? Are the Giants actually going to get Jose Abreu...

Hunter Pence Nominated for the 2013 Hank Aaron Award

It's been individual accolade after individual accolade for one of MLB's most team-oriented players. Tying records. Setting records. Player of the Week awards. Player of the Month awards.
