Hudson, Giants Roll to Seventh Straight at Home

It was a pitcher’s duel on Friday night at AT&T Park, as Tim Hudson silenced the Braves bats and the Giants won their seventh-straight at home with a 4-2 win.

Two Giant Developments: Hitting Shows Signs of Life and Roster Improves

Few things happen in the fan-centric, old school world of the San Francisco Giants. It’s a staid place where players get contracts for being fan favorites or for just being inexpensive, and those fans become extremely upset on the rare occasions when those players are cut or traded. Meanwhile, in the rest of baseball, teams are continuously making actual baseball moves: dropping...

San Francisco Giants: Two Third Basemen Enter, One Third Baseman Leaves

I didn't realize that when Casey McGehee accepted his demotion to Triple-A Sacramento from the San Francisco Giants that, well, he only kind of went.According to the guy who knows these things, because McGehee said okay to the demotion, he becomes part of the 40-man roster and is available for immediate call-up if they need him. If he'd fought the assignment, his road back to the...

Giants' McGehee helpful toward Duffy despite losing job to him

Even before Matt Duffy took over for him at third base, Casey McGehee has been nothing but hepful to the rookie.

Baggarly quotes Duffy...

Giants' Bochy going to the bullpen more frequently than usual

Giants manager Bruce Bochy has been calling upon his bullpen quite often this year. According to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News, no National League reliever has recorded more outs than George Kontos, who’s on pace to pitch 89 innings this season. That would be the most for a Giants reliever since 2004. Meanwhile, Kontos along with Jean Machi and Javier Lopez are all...

Giants DFA Casey McGehee, Should Mets Bite?

Third baseman Casey McGehee was designated for assignment by the San Francisco Giants on Sunday. Acquired in a trade with the Miami Marlins this past offseason to replace Pablo Sandoval as the everyday third baseman, McGehee has been absolutely awful at the plate.

Odd year, doesn't matter: Here come the San Francisco Giants

There’s no such thing as an odd year jinx. That’s what San Francisco Giants fans have tried to convince themselves of over the past few years, anyway. The Giants’ success in even years starting in 2010 has belied their struggles in the odd years that followed, either due to bad injuries, bad baseball, or both. For whatever reason, the Giants just couldn’t seem to get it...

ESPN releases 30 for 30 Short about the Giants’ Crazy Crab

The latest ESPN 30 for 30 Short has been released, and it’s a ridiculous 12 minute exploration of the San Francisco Giants’ anti-mascot – the Crazy Crab. In response to the mascot craze of the 70s and 80s, the Giants introduced an anti-mascot, the Crazy Crab, and essentially encouraged their fans to abuse it. The Crab lasted a year, and the man in the suit (Wayne Doba) ended...

San Francisco’s Offense: A Glass Half Full and Empty

The San Francisco Giants’ offense should be better than we have seen thus far. On the other hand, the Giants’ offense should be a lot worse than we’ve seen thus far. But then again, maybe the Giants’ offense is about what we expected it to be. Below is an attempt to determine how much water is […]

3 Waiver Wire Adds, Week 7

The last time I wrote this post I touted two Giants, Tim Lincecum and Brandon Crawford. Since then Lincecum pitched a gem in his first start out, and an uneven appearance against the Reds with way too many walks. I’m buying into Lincecum, and I think this is the beginning of a second carrer for him as a different kind of pitcher. As for Crawford, he’s been tearing the cover off...

WATCH: Tim Lincecum slips during delivery, eats it

Tim Lincecum tried so hard to strike out Marlon Byrd on Thursday night that he lost his footing and hurled a wild pitch toward home plate that no hitter would have considered swinging at. With a runner on second base, and a 3-2 count on Byrd, Lincecum was looking for a strikeout. However, things didn’t turn out exactly how he had hoped. Lincecum has a violent windup and unorthodox...
