Do The San Francisco Giants Have Any Moves Left To Make?

With the start of the New Year behind us, we can finally start to smell the scent of a freshly cut baseball field in the air.  Pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report to their team’s Spring Training facilities in a little over a month, which signifies the unofficial end to the Baseball Hot Stove league.

Two Former Giants Call It Quits

To illustrate just how important Aubrey Huff was to the 2010 Giants, you have to go back and look at the team in the years 2005-2009. More specifically, you have to look at their atrocious first base situation in span. Starting in 2005, it was almost comical how much difficulty the Giants had at finding a halfway decent hitter to play at first base. No matter who they tried, they...

Grading The San Francisco Giants Offseason

  Picture courtesy of Marko Realmonte Winter meetings have come and gone. While there still remains a number of high-profile free agents (and some not so “high-profile”), the San Francisco Giants and Brian Sabean have said that they’re basically done with major league deals for this offseason.   So… that’s it then?   If that’s the case, then I say we take a look...
