With Barry Zito‘s contract up and the possibility of Tim Lincecum signing elsewhere. The San Francisco Giants will have to be in play for some starting pitching. They’ve already been linked to a couple starting pitchers. One is a free agent and another is a trade possibility.
Free agent pitcher Bronson Arroyo thinks his...
Opening day may still be more than five months away, but it’s never too early to start predicting the opening day roster. There are still a ton of unknowns as the Giants prepare to enter free agency, but we’re going to do the best we can to look into the crystal ball. Here’s our best guess for who makes the 25-man opening day roster:
Starting Pitchers (5):
A week ago we asked you who you thought the San Francisco Giants MVP was in 2013. Despite fabulous seasons from Buster Posey, Brandon Belt, Madison Bumgarner, and Sergio Romo, the overwhelming majority (72%) chose Hunter Pence.
We couldn’t agree more.
With the 2013 season officially in the rearview mirror, it’s time to hand out someaccolades, and there’s only one...
It’s no secret that the San Francisco Giants are going to use free agency to try and improve their team. After all, they followed up a championship campaign with a third place finish, and they know they have to find a way to bounce back.
There’s no single thing that’s the key to regaining success in Major League Baseball. It takes a lot of things going right in order...
The San Francisco Giants will spend a good chunk of the next few months looking for a way to upgrade their starting pitching. Retaining players, signing players, or trading for players, Brian Sabean and Co are willing to do whatever is necessary to increase the quality of their five man rotation.
Well, it appears that one of the best in the game will be available. Tampa Bay...
Top international talent Jose Abreu is being eyed by several major league teams but the Giants may be the favorite to land the Cuban slugger.
Sources say that San Francisco is the front runner to sign the 26-year-old first baseman according to Joe Frisario of MLB.com.
Giants GM Brian Sabean was spotted in the Dominican Republic scouting Abreu back in September.
Abreu is expected...
We hope you're enjoying the MLB playoffs; we sure are, even with the Giants being out of it. But the real excitement comes not when the World Series approaches, but when the World Series ends. That's when free agency heats up, and we Giants fans get to see who we land . . . and who we lose.
The Giants have 12 members of their 2013 team that are set to become free agents...
For just the second time in four years, the San Francisco Giants aren't playing baseball on October 7. Which makes it a pretty undramatic day, relatively speaking.
Yep, the Giants played on the seventh day of October in both of their recent playoff runs. And while both games ultimately led to a world series, the sentiment on that day was drastically different in each...
Sunday Trivia! This year Hunter Pence played all 162 games for the San Francisco Giants. Can you name the last Giant to play all 162 games? Bonus points if you know what season it was!
Firstly, I apologize for not writing much in the waning moments of the 2013 season. It just got too depressing, too frustrating, and the same issues were being discussed ad nauseum by every source and blog between here and Timbuktu (which is in Mali, in case you're wondering). Mali is the same place that "Would Be" Champions shirts get sent. Even they are discussing...
The Mariners intend to extend a one-year qualifying offer to Kendrys Morales not necessarily because they are hoping for the draft-pick compensation but because they want to retain him.
They may just end up with the draft pick though.
Morales will turn down the qualifying offer as he'd expect to hit it much bigger in a market flush with cash but bereft of power (Nelson Cruz...
