WATCH: Benches Clear In Texas Rangers-San Francisco Giants Game

Did Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner try to rub Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre's head during Friday's game or something? If he did then the whole shout-fest those two had would make complete sense. That was not the case though, but for some reason the two started shouting at each other, and it became heated enough that both benches cleared.It got a little intense for a bit, but in the...

Giants strengthen rotation, add Mike Leake

The Giants addressed a major need last night, acquiring starting pitcher Mike Leake from the Reds for two minor leaguers. Leake, a free agent at the end of the season, has been on a roll lately and greatly increased his trade value in the process. He’s posted a 1.24 ERA over 36 innings this month, compiling a 4-1 record in the process. He was probably the top prize left in the...

Will the San Francisco Giants end up standing pat?

Madison Bumgarner is one of the best postseason pitchers of all time, but he can’t pitch in every playoff game. To their credit, the Giants seem acutely aware of this fact and have tried to improve the starting pitchers who follow him. They were involved in the bidding for Jon Lester last winter and reportedly offered him more money than the Cubs. They checked in on Max Scherzer...

The San Francisco Giants win the right way

Why are the San Francisco Giants successful? They adapt to overcome. They let leaders lead. Status Quo is not sufficient. People are your greatest asset. When you think of the Four Variables of Change that occur in organization: Strategies, Structures, Technologies, and People, it's not a surprise that the Giants team excels in each department. What do you do when your iconic...

Pence, Peavy Lead Giants Past Brewers

Jake Peavy contributed another strong outing, and a big seventh inning helped the Giants to a 5-0 victory and a series win over the Brewers. Both Peavy and Milwaukee starter Mike Fiers matched each other zero-for-zero through the first six frames, with Peavy going six and allowing just four hits and no walks while striking out three. He threw 91 pitches, 60 strikes. Perhaps no pitch...

Chris Heston shuts down Brewers, continues excellent rookie season

Just a reminder that the Giants designated for assignment and later released Chris Heston in 2013 to add Jeff Francoeur to the active roster. After winning 11 of 12 games after the All Star break the Giants found themselves just a game back of the Dodgers in the National League West. They were hosting the Brewers as their last home series for awhile as they hit the road to Arlington...

Giants' Tim Hudson becomes 15th pitcher to beat every MLB team

Tim Hudson can add another check mark to his list of career accomplishments. With a win over the Oakland A's on Sunday, the veteran San Francisco Giants righty became only the 15th pitcher in history to notch a win against all 30 MLB teams. "I'm not sure if you could say it's on my bucket list, but it is a pretty cool thing to be able to say you've done," Hudson said after the game...

San Francisco Giants interested in Aroldis Chapman

The San Francisco Giants have been connected to several big name arms as the trade deadline approaches, including the likes of Cole Hamels. Behind Madison Bumgarner, their rotation leaves much to be desired (although the return of Jake Peavy has helped a bit). While it appears unlikely that the team will add a big name starter (’s Jerry Crasnick calls it a “long shot...

San Francisco Giants: If Anyone Gets Traded, It's Brandon Belt

Looking over his shoulder, how apt. With the clock ticking until the MLB trade deadline, the San Francisco Giants should be willing to give up only one major piece of the team, and that’s Brandon Belt. I am one of many who have pulled for the Baby Giraffe since day one. I felt he was shoddily treated his early years in the big leagues, getting shuttled from the big club...

San Francisco Giants trade rumors: Will they make a trade?

The Major League Baseball trade deadline is less than 5 days away. The San Francisco Giants sit 1 game behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West. Will the Giants do anything at the deadline or will they stand pat? This is probably the biggest question surrounding the Giants. Why? It’s simple.

Bochy not expecting Giants to trade, content with current roster

Trade decisions ultimately aren't in the manager's control, but if Bruce Bochy had his way, he would keep the current San Francisco Giants roster intact. "Right now I don't see anything," Bochy said on the topic of potential trades, "so I just keep my focus on these 25 guys we have. That's the way I look at it. I can't say I expect something. I like this group. I don't think there...

Tough decision await the Giants at the trade deadline

It’s an odd year, which means the San Francisco Giants really shouldn’t bother trying to add anything at the trade deadline since there’s no point. But the Giants find themselves in the thick of contention with a chance to get to an odd year-playoffs for the first time since 2003, and that means they’ll be actively shopping over the next seven days. The Giants, though...

San Francisco Giants: Can the offense carry them?

The San Francisco Giants are built differently. Gone are the days of dominant pitching, in are the days of the Giants offense. The Giants playoff hopes ride solely on their offense. Why, because the pitching staff is way too inconsistent. In 2010 and 2012 the Giants built their team around pitching and timely hitting. This was something that other teams tried to duplicate as they...
