Johnny Cueto, Jeff Samardzija give Giants three horses in starting rotation

The Giants earned their third World Series trophy in a five-year span by riding the left arm of Madison Bumgarner in the postseason after manager Bruce Bochy sewed together a starting rotation that was able to generate 88 wins and garner the National League’s second wild-card slot.

Worth every penny: Cueto and Samardzija are keeping the Giants afloat

No team spent as many free agent dollars on their rotation as the Giants did this past winter, and no team had as many questions about their rotation when spring training started either. The guys the Giants spent big for – Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija – both had serious question marks. Talented pitchers, yes, but both were coming off of sub-par years that left doubt as to...

Five current MLB players who could have played in the NFL

Baseball players have caught a bad rap over the years for not being, shall we say, the most sculpted of athletes (need we say more?). There are, however, a handful of players who are so physically talented that they could also have been big hits in at least one other professional sport. In fact, many current MLB players probably could be playing in the NFL right now. With that in...

San Francisco Giants’ Jeff Samardzija Earns Five Scoreless Innings in Spring Training Bridge Series

Jeff Samardzija says he was tipping pitches during 2015 season

Jeff Samardzija says his career-worst 2015 season was down to him tipping his pitches. The right-hander had an ERA under 4 over the three seasons prior to last, but Samardzija’s 2015 was one to forget, with his ERA ballooning to 4.96 and leading the league in hits, earned runs, and home runs allowed. Samardzija believes there is a simple explanation. “When you’re tipping...
