The San Francisco Giants. San Francisco Giants. Sorry, repeat is on my mind, just like it’s on the minds of the Giants after winning their third World Series in the past five seasons. In 2015, San Fran is back after an incredible run and is ready to take on the challenge of defending its title. […]
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) San Francisco Giants reliever Hunter Strickland is a big, strong country boy from Georgia with a triple-digit fastball.
Despite how things looked in Game 2 of the World Series when got in a verbal skirmish that escalated against Kansas City, he insists he's under control.

With Spring training now in full swing for the San Francisco Giants, people will find that Tim Lincecum and his long, luscious hair are back and more importantly so is his father, Chris Lincecum, as the three time champion’s full-time pitching guru.
The two had grown apart over the past three years, resulting in spotty pitching and tough critiques from Lincecum’s father. But...

Pat "The Bat" Burrell was WSBGMs first inductee into our Hall of Fame. Here's a snippet from the first ballot from back in 2009.Pat Burrell - Burrell is my favorite Phillie of all time, so this is a sentimental pick for me. But he has some WSBGM's Hall cred, too. Possibly no other player has been as analyzed and scrutinized as often and as severely as Pat Burrell. But his on...
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Joe Panik is young but full of confidence at spring training.
It helps that the 24-year-old is the projected starting second baseman for the defending champion San Francisco Giants after a stellar half-season in 2014 that saw him hit .305 in 73 games and log five extra-base hits and eight RBIs in 17 postseason games.

The San Francisco Giants officially started defense of their third World Series title in the last five years on Wednesday, Feb. 18, when pitchers and catchers reported to Scottsdale, Arizona. For the reigning champions, there are some concerns about the pitching rotation, but one thing for certain is who the starting catcher is, Buster Posey.
Giants’ Manager Bruce Bochy is prepared...
High five to Burrell for being named a Phillies’ Wall of Famer today.
Pat Burrell was announced as the 2015 inductee on to the Phillies’ Wall of Fame earlier today. The selection sparked debate on the internet and on the airways, as folks argued the whys and why nots of Burrell being added to the Wall.
Here are some of the arguments – feel free to jump in the discussion.
Tim Lincecum, Madison Bumgarner and Matt Cain are just a few names that have come through the San Francisco Giants system to put up several Cy Young campaigns under Dave Righetti’s watch. There seems to be a new young arm preparing himself to enter the rotation of baseball’s newest dynasty in their minor league system. Just how close is Kyle Crick?
Crick was drafted 49th overall...

The San Francisco Giants farm system isn’t strong by any means. While they have depth at pitching, none of them rate as potential front-line aces; much more like #2,#3 starters or even back-end starters at the MLB level. As for position player, it’s even more bleak in terms of depth. But they do however have one prospect that is a cut above and projects to be a very good...
Today really should be a holiday. The day that all of baseball is reporting to work. Not just pitchers and catchers, but second baseman and right fielders too. On this glorious day, let’s take a look at the defending champs, the San Francisco Giants, and their chances at a return trip to October baseball in 2015.

The calendar has flipped and spring training has arrived once again, meaning it is time for the baseball world to go crazy over prospect rankings for the forthcoming season. Based primarily on stats and potential, below is our list of the San Francisco Giants’ top 20 prospects for 2015.
1. Kyle Crick RHP: Crick was drafted 49th overall in 2011 and has now become the top prospect...
Brandon Belt was one of the more interesting stories of the fantasy baseball season’s first month. A mid-double-digit round draft pick a year ago, Belt went on a tear in April hitting longballs in five of his first eight game and knocking seven out of the park in April overall, while hitting .255 and producing 13 RBI. He’d have nine home runs and 18 RBI through his first 35...

Madison Bumgarner is as country as it gets, and we mean that in a good way. This dude can rock tight jeans, a flannel, suspenders and ax with the best of ‘em. Does anyone look more perfect alongside an ox all Paul Bunyan-style than this guy? It’s a great fit. Photo via @SFGiants
Given that the legend of Madison Bumgarner is quickly reaching that of a mythical figure, it’s only fitting that Bumgarner dressed up as a Paul Bunyan-esque figure for Giants spring training. Bumgarner modeled the outfit (along with his ox friend) for the cover of the Giants’ official team magazine. #BusterPosey might be the #FaceOfMLB but

Being the defending Champions, the San Francisco Giants are going to be dealing with lots of media attention. Due to past success they are used to it. The Giants haven’t had a lot going on yet, however, here is a run-down of what’s happening thus far for the Giants.
The most newsworthy thing the Giants had to deal with was manager Bruce Bochy being hospitalized due to heart...
The San Francisco Giants may be preparing to defend their World Series championship, but some pretty sobering news came out of Arizona on Thursday.
The team released a statement via Twitter indicating that manager Bruce Bochy underwent a heart procedure on Thursday after he experienced some discomfort.
Here’s the Giants statement in its entirety.
Following his physical yesterday...
“Tom Seaver, he had the whole package. Power, deception, command, everything,” said Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti last week before FanFest. We’d been talking about tipping pitches, and deception, but any time you hear about an icon in the same sentence as Yusmeiro Petit, you put down your recording device and start looking at some […]
Innovation doesn’t always come on the field. Innovation can invade any part of the sport, really. And innovation doesn’t always mean you are first in your field, even if that sounds wrong. If you define innovation as the introduction of something new, the Giants are constantly innovating upon their own processes. “You always have to […]
Barry Bonds is one of the greatest hitters of all time, and the San Francisco Giants are looking to put some of his knowledge to good use. Bonds had a short visit with the Giants during spring training last year, which was his first instructional role with the team since his playing days ended in...Read More
How nice it must be to be able to drop 20 grand on a bike. No, not a motorcycle. A freaking bicycle.
That’s what former Major League Baseball slugger Barry Bonds did recently. If you don’t believe us, just check out this photo provided by Business Insider.
Among other things, this insane bike weighs only 14 pounds and features one of only 250 carbon-fiber rockets in the...

The San Francisco Giants revealed what I believe is their fifth different jersey for the 2015 season. And for the first time since the heyday of Barry Bonds, the team will be wearing black during games.
