SF Giants Rumors: Schierholtz Days Could Be Numbered

Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says outfielder Nate Schierholtz is ready to move on if another team wants to give him a larger role. Schierholtz doesn’t get very much playing time these days for the San Francisco Giants.   “There’s no place I’d rather play than here, says Schierholtz. “It’s where I grew up. It’s home to me. I love the fans. I love the...

Another Take: Phillies' Latest Big Offer is Proof that Cole Hamels Will Not Sign

We were all good and happy last night at reports that the Phillies were offering free agent-to-be Cole Hamels between $142 and $144 million over six years.  But this morning on 97.5 the Fanatic, Assistant Program Director and weekend host Joe DeCamara had an interesting take: the face that we are learning of this offer is proof that Cole Hamels will not sign. DeCamara makes a...

Postgame Wrap: Fantastic Mr. Fox Sports

National broadcasters are an easy target. Hall of Fame announcer Tim McCarver, for example, had a whole website dedicated to his quotes (though it seems to have been taken down). was a hit back in the day, dedicated to its namesake and many others, and other sites have sprung up to immortalize the gems coming from the mouths of the best and brightest. Now, I understand...

GIFcap: LOLincecum even when he pitches well

A balk and then he forgets the outs, what can’t Tim Lincecum do

Extending Melky Cabrera

Cross posted from Bay Area Sports Guy: One of the hardest questions as a Giants fan is do you want to offer Melky Carbrera a long term contact. If so, how high would you be willing to go? Complicating the matter is the fact that he has two distinct periods in career, on e in which he has produced at a below average rate and one at an above average rate. Prior to his 2011 stint...

Giants 6, Phillies 5(10)

Hamels and fellow All-Star pitcher Matt Cain hit homers in the same inning, but Gregor Blanco...

Cole Hamels and the Phillies working towards a long-term deal

Earlier this week, we learned that the Phillies were preparing a $120 million offer to left hander Cole Hamels, but apparently he wanted more money. Today, sources close to Jon Heyman of CBSSports said that the Phillies and Hamels are “moving in the right direction” regarding the contract talks. Heyman says that the Phillies' willingness to offer Hamels six years “is a...

Kernan Makes The Case For Victorino

From Kevin Kernan:The easy route would be to do nothing and hope the old guys, Raul Ibanez and Andruw Jones, continue to produce loud hits for the Yankees. The Yankees, though, need to make a deal for an outfielder. Send a limo down the New Jersey Turnpike to pick up speedy Shane Victorino from the Phillies. Victorino would put the Yankees that much closer to victory. The Athletics...

Two Out of Three Ain't Bad, But May Not Be Good Enough For the Phillies

"Two out of three ain't bad", our Erik Seybold wrote on our Facebook page Baseball Talk: Philadelphia right after the Phillies lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday afternoon.   In normal circumstances, that may be true.  But this is the 2012 Phillies. To win two out of three all season long, the end result would be 108 wins.  A team winning 108 has not happened...
