San Francisco Giants: Second Base a Problem

The San Francisco Giants are 43-26 and in first place in the National League West by 6.5 games even after the ninth inning collapse yesterday.

With old friends in town, Brandon Hicks spiffs up

Mets Spring Training 2013 Preview: Brandon Hicks

Brandon Hicks, who was purchased by the Mets from the Athletics earlier this off-season, will be trying for a utility position on the Mets roster outside of camp. He has a few things going for him and some critical items against him. On the positive side he can play short stop and third base, which makes him valuable for a late inning defense replacement. Through age 26, he has had...
