Nori Aoki Should Hit Leadoff for The Giants

The San Francisco Giants officially announced on Tuesday the signing of outfielder Nori Aoki. Aoki has, over his three year career in the MLB, totaled 1531 plate appearances as a leadoff hitter and only 280 in other spots (primarily the second spot in the lineup).

Belt has been the subject of much debate around these pages. Adam Nodiff and Jake Devereaux, our two Profcast hosts, are Belt believers. George Fitopoulos and myself are not. Conversely, Adam and Jake dislike...

Revisiting Belt vs. Hosmer, 2014’s Last 1B Standing

Those of you who were reading us back in March and April are probably familiar with a year-long debate between Adam Nodiff, Jake Devereaux, George Fitopoulos, and myself — who would have the better season, Brandon Belt or Eric Hosmer? Adam and Jake were staunch Belt supporters, maligning Hosmer’s ground ball rate. George and I figured Belt had better raw power, but his ballpark...

(Nhat V. Meyer/Bay Area News Group) Let’s see, what does 8 2/3 innings, three hits, five strikeouts and not giving up a single  run with a one run lead get you in Game 2 of the NLDS.  It gives you a closer who couldn’t close the deal.  Oh, I forgot to mention it was Jordan Zimmerman, who threw such a gem and I also fail to include he retired 18 straight batters before...

Yasiel Puig arm update: still gross

Yasiel Puig’s ridiculous right arm is possibly the best aspect of his game. In the 11th inning of Monday’s Giants-Dodgers game, Puig nailed Brandon Belt at the plate with an absolute laser. Yeah, that’s just disgusting. The look on Belt’s face afterwards was priceless. It’s not just that Puig’s throw was strong, it was incredibly accurate. Great positioning by Drew Butera...
