Dontrelle Willis Cut By San Francisco Giants

The end of a very short roller coaster career appears to have come to an end on Wednesday when the San Francisco Giants cut ties with minor league pitcher Dontrelle Willis. Willis, who has not appeared in a MLB game since 2011, will most likely have a very tough time getting another shot at the Majors due to his age and diminishing abilities. Most remember the lefty from the five...

San Francisco Giants: Week Two Review

"Say it wrong one more time, I double dog dare you!"My hope for this week is that San Francisco Giants play-by-play man Duane Kuiper stops calling Mike Morse “Michael Morris.” I get it, the first couple of days, sure, “Morse” becomes “Morris.” But this is two weeks in. Kuip takes pains to get Jean Machi's name right (at least it seems like it), but Morse...

Giants could activate Jeremy Affeldt on Tuesday

The San Francisco Giants have used their bullpen a lot this season.  Averaging just over 3 innings a game so far, the pen has been taxed for 40.2 innings of relief.  They've also been outstanding, with the third lowest bullpen ERA in baseball at 1.99!  That bullpen could get some help on Tuesday as the Giants look like they will activate Jeremy Affeldt.  Henry Schulman of...

Tim Hudson continued to impress, the two-outs hits are back, and the San Francisco Giants took the series and the game from the Colorado Rockies with a 5-4 walk-off win in ten innings.

WATCH: Giants P Bumgarner belts go-ahead grand slam

San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner did something that many pitchers who go up to bat don’t really have a chance to do. In San Fran’s 6-5 win over the Colorado Rockies last night, the young lefty gave put the Giants ahead for good with a “giant” hit. In the bottom of the fourth inning with the bases loaded and two outs, Bumgarner crushed a grand slam. Watch Madison’s...

How the San Francisco Giants will make the playoffs

Analysts and fans alike were skeptical regarding the potential of the San Francisco Giants going into the 2014 season.

Giants could be seriously good, but also mortal

I waited a week to jump in here and write something intentionally, as to not overreact about such a small sample size. Seeing as though week one ended on a pretty lousy note in LA, I feel as though we've all been doused with a little bit of reality after a pretty sizzling start.We're not going to win 110 games. Belt isn't going to break Bonds's HR record, and Pagan...
