San Francisco Giants
The following is an interview conducted by Jeremy Dorn, an Editorial Intern at San Francisco Magazine and an experienced sports blogger with a number of great credits (and several disturbing ones).
Through no fault of his own, Jeremy was born in the Bay Area but was raised a Los Angeles Dodger fan. Perhaps it was due to an unhealthy mix of Cap'n Crunch cereal and that white paste they used in grade school as glue.
Read Jeremy Dorn's compelling sports blog Jam Shots, and be sure to consult an attorney before agreeing to talk with him either in person or on the phone.
With Spring Training firing up this week, some of the Super Bowl sting is beginning to fade in San Francisco. It's time to look forward to the Giants defending another World Series title—right?
Not if you're San Francisco intern Jeremy Dorn, a lifelong Dodgers fan stuck in the heart of Giants country and trying to finagle his way to the ultimate baseball dream job in the...
BEST OF MAXIM
This is the final post in a four-part series projecting the Dodgers' full-season minor league teams. To close out the series, the Albuquerque Isotopes.
Part 1: Great Lakes Loons
Part 2: Rancho Cucamonga Quakes
Part 3: Chattanooga Lookouts
The Isotopes finished as the Pacific Coast League American Southern division with an 80-64 record. The 'Topes faced off against...
Spring Training for the San Francisco Giants is getting as predictable as Tommy Lasorda's favorite ethnic food. Or Alex Rodriguez ruining yet another very expensive lie-detector machine.
Really, what would Spring in Scottsdale, Arizona be without Willie Mays and Will Clark roaming the clubhouse and batting cages, casually dispensing wisdom and humor? And once again San Francisco...
In Mike Piazza's new autobiography Long Shot, the former Dodgers catcher has done the unthinkable: he's taken legendary Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully to task.
Piazza blames Scully for turning fans against him heading into the 1998 season, his final contracted year with the Dodgers before hitting free agency. Piazza wanted a seven year, $105 million contract from Los...
HOW DOES HE REALLY FEEL?
Carl Crawford, now a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers, bitterly recalls his time with the Boston Red Sox, referring to the environment as "toxic."
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford is
participating in baseball-related activities, but he still has a ways to go in
his recovery from Tommy John surgery he underwent in August. Even so, the
veteran is confident that he’ll be ready by Opening Day, according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.
While Crawford believes he’ll be ready by the start of the regular season...
The San Francisco Giants decided to bring back the core of players that carried them to the 2012 World Championship. Angel Pagan was one of those players.It took Pagan a long time to finally earn a full-time job in the majors as his age-31 season in 2013 will be just his fourth full year, but don’t hold that against him. He makes living mostly with his legs and has developed a...
Coming off an elbow injury and eyeing a starting job for the Los Angeles Dodgers this season, P Chad Billingsley told reporters on Tuesday that he’s not concerned about his elbow injury heading into this season. Billingsley has been battling a torn ligament in his elbow and opted not to have Tommy John surgery this offseason. The pitcher instead chose platelet-rich injections over...
So, this should be a very unsurprising top 3. The top 3 prospects of the Giants are all starting pitchers, and all three are expected to man the rotation in San Jose next season.
If you get a chance this year, go see San Jose. Chances are, you’ll see a good pitcher.
3. Clayton Blackburn – When a 16th rounder our of high school has a solid year, it’s a win. When he has...
Nobody should be shocked that Carl Crawford basically told the LA Times that his time with the Red Sox was miserable. In an interview, he opened up about his experience in Boston, and he did not hold back. Labeling it as "the toughest two years . . . by far" he continued to be truthful in the interview. He did not necessarily criticize Red Sox Nation, but essentially...
The 2013 MLB Fan Cave contest is well under way for its third season. Last month, Major League Baseball revealed it’s list of the top 50 candidates out of the tens of thousands of submissions.
Every team has at least one representative, but this isn’t about them. This is about the Dodgers, their fans and more importantly their fanatics. This is about having as many Dodger fans...
Today is Kevin Stocker's 42nd birthday. Drafted in 1991, Stocker made his major league debut with the Phillies in 1993 and what a doozy it was. Stocker's debut turned out to be a 20-inning game lasting over six hours against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Mitch Williams blew a save in the ninth inning by allowing two runs, walking three batters and a single to force in one...
