GIANTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Aug 27

Yesterday I suggested a Giants stack against Jorge De La Rosa plus Matt Shoemaker in the rotation. Shoemaker and Buster Posey delivered big and my pair of Dodgers chipped in solid efforts, but the rest of the Giants did little. Overall the lineup scored 114.30 points, finished outside of the money in the Daily Moonshot, and won most of its double ups. In terms of rank, it beat 61...

A Good Reason To Watch Yusmeiro Petit Pitch

The Giants can take no more. Well into Tim Lincecum‘s third straight year of mediocrity — since the start of 2012, he’s got a 134 ERA- and 114 FIP- – and most of the way through the first year of his 2/$35m extension signed last winter, San Francisco will skip him in the rotation and instead […]

Pablo Sandoval uses fan's phone for great selfie during rain delay

Remember the disastrous rain delay during Tuesday’s Cubs-Giants game in Chicago? Well, it was good for one thing – an awesome Pablo Sandoval selfie. According to a fan on Reddit, the Panda borrowed the phone from the female fan pictured in the backwards hat and snapped this great picture: This might be one of the better quality selfies I’ve ever seen, even if Tim Lincecum...

Mad-Bum Beats Ski Bums

Madison Bumgarner threw a near-perfect game vs. the Rockies, ending with a one hitter and 13 Ks. Tim Lincecum was the first one to congratulate him, saying, "I'll see you in the bullpen in two months." Then Lincecum laughed, a hallow, empty laughter and his eyes glazed with what appeared to be tears. Yesterday, Bum was so impressive that even Gattis said, "I...

Tim Lincecum: Now a Reliever, Maybe Needs to Close

Tim Lincecum is headed to the bullpen. After a miserable start to the second half — opposing batters are hitting .331/.422/.622 against him since the All-Star break — the Giants have finally removed him from the rotation and will experiment with Lincecum as a relief pitcher. Of course, Lincecum famously dominated out of the pen […]

Giants Injury Update: Marco Scutaro not expected to return this year

The San Francisco Giants fell to 68-62 on the season following a 3-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Monday. At five games behind in the division and second in the wild card race, the Giants have a good chance at a playoff push down the stretch. They'll have to do so without veteran infielder Marco Scutaro, who is likely to out for the rest of the season. #452152814 / gettyimages...

Giants Rumors: Will Tim Lincecum make his next start?

Since the All-Star break, San Francisco Giants starter Tim Lincecum has been largely awful. Despite being bumped up to the third starter in the rotation thanks to a dominant streak that began with the June 25th no-hitter against the San Diego Padres, Lincecum has not lived up to recent expectations. So far this month, his ERA is an appalling 7.94 in only 17 innings pitched. That...

Tim Lincecum doesn’t have it — will he make his next start?

The Giants will be discussing Lincecum’s status in the rotation. After the two-time Cy Young Award winner was pulled in the third inning of Saturday’s 6-2 loss to the Nationals, manager Bruce Bochy wouldn’t commit to Lincecum making his next start. “This is something we need to talk about internally, what our best option is,” Bochy said. “We’ll look at it and see what...

San Francisco Giants: Buster Posey’s future

Amidst the uncertainty and disappointment of the San Francisco Giants’ 2014 season, one narrative remains consistent: Buster Posey may not, and possibly should not, finish out his career behind the plate. Analysts and fans alike have shown the desire for Giants management to make the move from catcher for Posey, but the organization has shown few signs that any such plans are in...

San Francisco Giants: Whiff on another Cuban Star

The San Francisco Giants missed out on another Cuban sensation as they decided not to take a risk on Cuban star Rusney Castillo. The Giants need a player like Castillo and had an opportunity to land him, but failed. Will they regret it or do they know what they are doing? The 7 year 72.5 million dollar contract that Castillo received is not outrageous. It’s in line with the money...

Unfortunately, with Buster Posey hurting and slumping, and both Brandon Belt and Hector Sanchez potentially done for the year because of concussions, that's exactly what they haven't got.According to Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area, Posey was out of Wednesday's lineup with soreness in...

San Francisco Giants: Better off as Wild Card?

Today’s double-header against the Chicago Cubs will be a key point in determining if the San Francisco Giants still have hopes of a division title in 2014 but could the Wild Card be the best thing thing for the Giants to compete for going forward? If the Giants fail to beat the Cubs in today’s suspended make-up game, they will fall four games back of Los Angeles, with just over...
