MLB Trade Rumors reported over the weekend that although Hunter Pence is set to test the free agent market following the 2013 season, he’d much rather work out an extension with the San Francisco Giants. The outfielder was traded by the Philadelphia Phillies to the Bay area before last July’s non-waiver trade deadline. Jim Bowden of ESPN.com was the first to break the news of Pence’s wishes beyond 2013.
Through 101 games with the Phillies last season before he got traded, he was one of the few sources of power in a lineup that didn’t include Chase Utley or Ryan Howard very often. The 29-year-old hit .271/.336/.447 with 17 homers and 59 RBI in the hitter-friendly confines of Citizens Bank Park. However, once he landed in his new home at AT&T Park, he saw firsthand why this is one of the toughest places to hit, as he put together a .219/.287/.384 triple slash with 7 homers and 45 RBI in 59 games played.

If you attend Spring Training you get to see players have a little stretching session prior to batting practice. Then you see them joking around while shagging balls in the outfield. Others are getting their swings in and working on bunting. However, you might miss the hard work that these players actually put in.

Hunter Pence who is an outfielder for the San Francisco Giants needs to play more often. Someone tell skipper Bruce to make sure that Hunter is in the lineup day after day or the Internet will be flooded with more videos like this in which Hunter pierces the viewers soul and eyes.

Tim Lincecum is working his way back from the fall he took last year. No this was not a physical fall. Lincecum fell from dominant starter, to reliever, to spot starter last season. He was still able to contribute to the San Francisco Giants' World Series victory, but he wants to be a starter full time. This spring will give him the opportunity to prove he can still...
San Jose city councilman Sam Liccardo quite understandably is getting pissed off about the handling of the A’s proposed move to San Jose.
After all, it’s been four years since Bud Selig commissioned a “Blue Ribbon Panel” to look into the move. Meanwhile, the Giants continue to further complicate the matter by refusing to concede San Jose’s territorial rights to their Bay...
