Giants Offense Finds Lift from Unexpected Places in Win over Cubs

The Giants recovered from a wet Tuesday night to take the first full game of the series against the Chicago Cubs 8-3. Andrew Susac hit his first Major League home run, and Travis Ishikawa drove in three in the rout.

Giants Going “Series to Series,” Finally Get One at Home

San Francisco won a series at home, gained a game on the Dodgers, and got a win for Tim Lincecum when he didn’t have his best stuff as they defeated the Phillies 5-2 on Sunday. Lincecum looked anything but sharp, lacking control from the first batter of the game. Ben Revere singled to lead off the top of the first, but luckily for Lincecum, was thrown out by Andrew Susac trying...

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) A little bit of patience has led to a lot of confidence for Michael Morse, who finished the three-game series with Philadelphia reaching base in nine straight plate appearances. Morse got three hits and scored twice as the San Francisco Giants won consecutive home games for the first time in over two months, beating the Phillies 5-2 on Sunday. ''I'...

Susac Looks Like Posey And It’s Awesome

We have all had that experience where someone we know starts to emulate us. And not just emulate, but copy every. single. little. thing. At first it’s cute and then even humorous. After a while, it was nothing but obnoxious. For me, it was my youngest sister. Maybe for you, a younger brother or a cousin. Or that neighbor kid who tried to keep up as you pedaled away with your friends...

Giants Suffer Sixth Straight Loss

There doesn’t seem to be any answer on why the San Francisco Giants (57-50) have been struggling and no one knows the exact reason. They are in the midst of a six game losing streak, with the last five games being at home, and are desperately seeking answers. With the Los Angeles Dodgers (59-47) solely at the helm of first place, the Giants have a lot to figure out and time is...

That Childhood Feeling

It’s always the joke at Spring Training, that you never know half the guys names.  That your scorecard will become a scratchpad of substitutions.  That half the guys wear numbers better suited for offensive lineman and wide receivers. I’ll probably re-use those jokes for strips in the future. The truth is, this spring is less confusing than most.  The majority of the team...

Futures

Ok guys, today I went to probably my favorite Spring Training game of all time – the San Francisco Giants B-squad vs. the Giants futures. There was no one in the stands, it was nerdy, and I loved it. Here are some things that I took away from Sundays game: 1. Madison Bumgarner is good at baseball. He made light of the futures line-up by tossing four shut-out innings. He gave up...

2014 Top Prospects – Part 3

In case you missed it, we here at the Lunatic Fringe got to do a Guest Lecture at Surviving The World, a unique photo-webcomic by Dante Shepherd.  He’s a big baseball fan…but forgive him for rooting for the Red Sox, will ya? As with any system, there are quite a few players who don’t make the Top 10.  With the Giants, it’s interesting because of quite a range of second...

2014 Top Prospects – Part 2

Giants’ Top 10 lists have been rather intriguing and spread out…at least, after Kyle Crick.  There are varying thoughts about which of the mess of pitchers the Giants have are ahead of the others, there are disagreements about the ceilings of the low-ceiling offensive players, as well as how much to believe in some short-season stats. That’s not going to stop me from entering...

Draft Locally, Act Globally

I watch a lot of amateur baseball. You can maybe tell from my articles and tweets that the origin of prospects and how they enter professional baseball is of great interest to me. While brainstorming ideas for this article I was looking over the San Francisco Giants farm system and I got to looking at where their prospects originated from. I don’t only mean high school or college…...

Mets Absent From MLB.com AFL Top 20

Jim Callis and Jonathan Mayo over at MLB.com recently put together their list of the top 20 prospects in the AFL. As expected, Byron Buxton (OF, Twins) topped the chart. A shoulder injury limited Buxton to 12 games this offseason, although, he still managed to show-off his many tools and slug three home runs. Second on the list is Kris Bryant (3B, Cubs) who is credited with having...

Giants Prospects Kyle Crick and Andrew Susac Make the Fall Star Game

It’s not exactly a well-kept secret that we’re excited about the players in the San Francisco Giants farm system. There isn’t a surplus of surefire prospects, but there are a few that have us pretty geeked. And two of those prospects just made the roster for the Fall Star Game (previously the Rising Stars Game), the All-Star event of the Arizona Fall League, and the premier...
