Giants Have An Excellent Opportunity to Re-Set Their Attack

There is one safe assumption we can make about every Major League Baseball season: virtually every team will have injuries to players on the active 25 man roster. No one wants to see any ballplayer on any team get hurt, but when the inevitable does happen it can be an opportunity for teams that rarely make big changes to their every day line-ups to do some serious re-structuring...

San Francisco Giants lose Nori Aoki to broken leg

The San Francisco Giants are now down two starting outfielders with only the injury-prone Angel Pagan still standing. Left fielder Nori Aoki was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday with a small fracture in his right fibula.  I’m not a doctor but speaking as someone who suffered a broken leg, I would expect him to be out longer than that, even if the fracture is small...

As the middle of June approaches, the All-Star break is right around the corner. Let’s take a look at the potential players who might represent the Pirates in this year’s game. The list of Pirates players is very short due to the fact that voting for this game is based on a popularity contest more than anything. Andrew McCutchen sits at 5th among outfielders and is currently...

Andrew McCutchen got robbed twice, but it didn’t matter

During Monday night’s Pirates-Giants game at AT&T Park, Andrew McCutchen could have had a huge night. In both the third and fifth innings, the 2013 NL MVP came up to the plate with the bases loaded and one out. A hit in either situation would have likely plated at least two runs with the speedy Josh Harrison on second and Gregory Polanco on first. But instead, McCutchen was...

Giants 2, Dodgers 0: One of ‘those’ games

These Dodger-Giant games are the worst. It’s probably a blessing in disguise they didn’t meet in last year’s NLCS. There would have been some folks (including yours truly) who wouldn’t have survived it. This was a pretty lackluster game. The Giants scored their first run in the most Giant of ways. After two were out, Joe Panik singled on a blooper and Angel Pagan followed...

Fantasy Baseball - Buy or Sell

3 Waiver Wire Pickups, Week 3

Two weeks ago I started off our Waiver Wire articles in the opening week of the season. I advised caution and patience with the guys you drafted. You drafted them for a reason, and two to three days of o-fers doesn’t change that. But, I did recommend three guys that should be picked up if you were facing injuries, or if you drafted injured players to stash on the DL.  Those three were...

Despite the title of this article, generally speaking, you shouldn’t make waiver wire moves in the first week of the season. I believe in trusting your draft choices.

Pagan: ‘Giants are probably better this year’

Despite missing a chunk of last season, Angel Pagan played a key role in the Giants’ third world championship in five years. Pagan missed roughly half the season in each of the last two years, and the Giants are depending on him to stay healthy this season. However, despite the time he missed last season, Pagan has no regrets. “Why would it be bittersweet? If I’m part of the...
