Reds ink 2 minor league and 1 major league deal

In the land of the baseball-news-deprived, the rumor that the Reds were courting free agent infielder Emmanuel Burriss was hot stuff. Today, the rumor was made flesh when the Reds signed Burriss to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training. It seems pretty unlikely that Burriss is going to do much with the Reds. If he breaks camp with the big league team, he’ll...

Postgame Wrap: Giants Struggle in Post-Manny Burriss Era

Last night I wrote about the redeeming qualities of last night’s loss; today, there were none. Barry Zito looked bad, the bullpen looked bad, the hitters looked bad. Today was a game that we will deny happened in two weeks. The closest thing to a silver lining was Marco Scutaro’s first appearance at third base since 2008; he looked fine, made the throw well, and generally managed...

Diamondbacks fan snags foul line drive

An Arizona Diamondbacks fan leaned over a railing with his glove to make a nice snag a line drive foul ball during Sunday's game against the San Francisco Giants. Your browser does not support iframes. It happened in the top of the fourth inning as Giants second baseman Emmanuel Burriss hit a line drive foul down the first base side. Burriss ended up grounding out to the...

Update on bogus Brian Burres-to-Giants rumor

by Troy Nelson, Many of you have asked me to provide an update on my post from a couple of days ago, when I wrote about how skeptical I was about the supposed report that pitcher Brian Burres had been signed to a minor league contract by the Giants. My skepticism arose as soon as I heard that the Giants had also re-signed infielder Emmanuel Burriss on the same day...

SF Giants Rumors: One Less Arbitration Case, Burriss Signs

The San Francisco Giants (Press Release) have knocked off an arbitration case by signing infielder Manny (Emmanuel) Burriss to a one-year major league contract.   Burriss is expected to come off the bench in 2012.

Giants sign Brian Burres and Emmanuel Burriss

Unconfirmed: Giants sign reliever Brian Burres

On a day when they signed a Burriss, the San Francisco Giants have also apparently signed a Burres. Confused? Me too. So, I went to the supposed source, Kristy Robinson, a Pittsburgh Pirates beat reporter for Ohio Valley Athletics. She’s a self-proclaimed “rookie” in the business, and I wanted to make sure she didn’t confuse Emmanuel Burriss (the Giants infielder who did...
