Hudson Makes History as Giants Complete Sweep

San Francisco’s offense teed off against a struggling Kendall Graveman. Angel Pagan got it started with a lead-off walk before Duffy sent his ninth home run of the year into the left-field bleachers.

Tough decision await the Giants at the trade deadline

It’s an odd year, which means the San Francisco Giants really shouldn’t bother trying to add anything at the trade deadline since there’s no point. But the Giants find themselves in the thick of contention with a chance to get to an odd year-playoffs for the first time since 2003, and that means they’ll be actively shopping over the next seven days. The Giants, though...

Is Outfielder Angel Pagan on the Hot Seat for the San Francisco Giants?

(AP Photo/Alex Brandon) The San Francisco Giants outfield has been hit hard by injuries this season, having lost Hunter Pence (twice), Nori Aoki and Gregor Blanco for extended periods of time. One player who hasn’t been hurt, at least not officially, is center fielder Angel Pagan. Heading into 2015, Pagan had been the most injury prone of the Giants intended starting outfield...

Are the San Francisco Giants in the Market for Outfield Help?

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...

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...

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...
