Johnny Cueto Is Also a Giants Ace

The appeal of lists and rankings, whatever its cause, is very real. That thing you like? Sure, it’s good, but is it better than this other thing?!

We’ve even clung to “Trout or Harper?” for as long as we possibly can. Whether...

Why the San Francisco Giants are on the verge of a historical collapse

It’s not supposed to be this hard for the Giants in an even-numbered year. However, San Francisco is holding on for its postseason life with 11 games remaining on its schedule.Winners of the 2010, 2012 and 2014 World Series, the Giants are in danger of making some dubious history.

Johnny Cueto blew an awesome gigantic bubble

Well, San Francisco Giants pitcher Johnny Cueto gave...

This Is the Best Johnny Cueto We’ve Seen

Remember when Johnny Cueto was viewed as a risk? I mean, he’s a pitcher, of course he’s a risk — all pitchers are risks.

Between his underwhelming second half and ugly postseason with Kansas City, a right elbow that barked multiple times throughout the year, and his heavy workload...
