Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, Apr 16

Thursday brings us our first legitimately short slate of the MLB season now that most of the odd opening week start times and off days have passed us. Let’s take a look at the rankings!

Bumgarner’s Bat Only Fourth Best Among Current NL Pitchers

Every once in a while I like to listen to local Bay Area sportstalk radio, where those otherwise asked by society to leave the room always have a voice. One recurring theme I’ve noticed is that the vast majority of sportstalk callers are apparently unaware that actual Major League Baseball facts, statistics, and basic information are readily available on the internet. As a result...

San Francisco Giants 2015 Preview: 3 Up and 3 Down

The San Francisco Giants defied the odds once again in 2014 to win the World Series. Winning their third title in five seasons solidified them as a mini-dynasty. The Giants, despite injuries to Matt Cain, Angel Pagan and Brandon Belt, were able to continue along their odd-even trend. The Giants offense for much of the season was really good. They had power with Michael Morse, Hunter...

Madison Bumgarner dresses as Paul Bunyan at spring training

Given that the legend of Madison Bumgarner is quickly reaching that of a mythical figure, it’s only fitting that Bumgarner dressed up as a Paul Bunyan-esque figure for Giants spring training. Bumgarner modeled the outfit (along with his ox friend) for the cover of the Giants’ official team magazine. #BusterPosey might be the #FaceOfMLB but Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

McCarthy was rumored to the Giants, but not signing him is no big deal. Santana is decent, but no biggie there either. However, missing out on Lester stings. How will the Giants recover? Well, they have more...

Bumgarner's MVP prize was recalled earlier this month

San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner cemented his place in history as one of the greatest World Series pitchers of all time with five shutout relief innings in Game 7.
