The Giants’ Role Players Shine

Anybody in baseball could have had these guys. Gregor Blanco, Yusmeiro Petit, Javier Lopez. Sure, the Giants spent a little to get them, but that little has meant a lot to them in return.

The Importance of Gregor Blanco

Every spring, the Giants go out and sign a bunch of players to minor-league deals. It’s baseball’s bargain bin, and history would suggest the Giants are particularly adept at this dumpster diving. Most teams are happy to come across the occasional Joaquin Arias, a useful yet seriously flawed player that is capable of serving a functional purpose at the major-league level. In...

SF Giants Rumors: Blanco Could Be A Lock, Roster Spots In Question

We can’t say anything definite on what’s going to happen. I will say he’s played as good as anyone this spring.” Blanco has used...
