The San Francisco Giants’ road funk appeared to have followed them home when they lost to the Cincinnati Reds on Monday July 25th. The Reds hold the fourth-worst record in the league at 39-61, but they put up a good fight to premiere the series with a 7-5 win. For game two, Giants’ right hander Matt Cain took the mound at AT&T for the first time since May 21st. With his hamstring...
There was more to it than that, but it gives you an idea of how fun the game was. At the risk of being a party pooper, a real severed toe in the sushi roll, please note that the Giants might have lost 7-6 on Tuesday night if Matt Cain didn’t hit a three-run homer. I know the exact sequence of events plays out differently, but the margin of victory was two runs in a game where...

It’s been 101 years since the Giants last won a game at Fenway Park. Their final chance for writing the win, and avoiding the sweep, begins at 4:10 on Wednesday afternoon and they’ll be led by the only team member who was on the roster the last time the orange and black visited the historical city. Matt Cain, their former horse, of course, and the year was 2007. They lost. And...
Matt Cain was finally showing signs of his former excellence for the San Francisco Giants’ pitching rotation after a slow start to the season. He managed two wins in his last two appearances on the mound by averaging a 1.50 ERA and five strikeouts in six innings. Cain was prepared to add another in the Giants’ road series opener against the Colorado Rockies on Friday May 27th...
Over the next 30 days, I’ll look at 30 players—one from each team—that I believe should be traded, but more along the lines of a “what if” scenario. Some will seem obvious, just as others will seem nonsensical. Some may also seem desperate, but it’s important to understand that this list is entirely subjective and made up solely of notable names.

The San Francisco Giants‘ pitching staff hasn’t be tremendous this season, and with the loss of Matt Cain, it doesn’t look like it will get better. On Monday, Cain discovered he needs season-ending elbow surgery, which he will undergo on the 11th. In 15 starts, Cain was 2-7 with 4.18 ERA and 70 Ks. There are several factors that could have played in the injury. According to...
