Do Any Giants Deserve to Make The All-Star Team?

What is this madness? As of the last NL-All Star Ballot, no Giants will be starting in the All-Star game. This will be the second year in a row where no Giants start since 2012, where we had four. Surely, we are being snubbed? Right? That’s what I’m here to figure out. Have any Giants deserved an All-Star nod thus far? Here are where the Giants are in the standings: C Buster...

If you seem like you’re out of the race, you still have the second half of the season to make a run. Here are some guys who might be able to...

Lack of Depth Highlights the Giants’ Current Tailspin

That the San Francisco Giants have hit their first serious bovine pie roadblock on the 2014 season trail is not really breaking news. Good teams, bad teams, mediocre teams– all MLB teams will have nosedives and any number of consecutive losses in a given season. The keys are, how deep is this team built and how proactively will the organization respond when the stuff hits the fan...

Young Giants Fan Drilled By Baseball, Pain Quickly Eased By Getting Ball (Video)

A young San Francisco Giants fan had his chance Monday night. He had his chance to make a nifty little snag down the right-field line at AT&T Park. He did not make that play, and the ensuing results are even better than could have been imagined. Giants infielder Brandon Crawford turned on an offering from Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg in the second inning and...

Little Kid Takes A Baseball To The Knee, Milks Injury Until He’s Gifted The Ball

One young Giants fan had a tough night in San Francisco on Monday. Not only did he fail at securing a Brandon Crawford ground rule double in the second inning, the ball hopped over the wall and took out the kid’s knee, sending him to the ground hard. And if that wasn’t embarrassing enough, the kid couldn’t seem to hold it together and the waterworks were unleashed as he tried...

Which Giants Deserve to be All-Stars?

It’s that time of the year again. The time when fans can go social-media crazy. The time when they can argue tirelessly with other fans over which player is more deserving. The time when teams will bribe their fan bases to vote. That’s right, it’s All-Star voting time. In 2012, Giants fans managed to piss off baseball fans all over the country when they voted in Buster Posey...

Crawford's 2 homers help Giants finish sweep of Braves

OK, children, go to Wikipedia and look up Ronald Reagan. He once sat in the Oval Office (and look up "Oval Office" if you must). It was a long, long time ago. Before the Internet. Reagan was president the last time the Giants swept a three-game series in Atlanta, in 1988. They finally repeated the feat Sunday with another homer barrage and a 4-1 victory, their ninth in...

Brandon Crawford's HR in 10th lifts Giants over Rockies

What a great story. Manager Bruce Bochy lights a fire under Brandon Crawford by declaring the shortstop will sit against some left-handed pitchers. Crawford seethes. Every time he faces a lefty and the ball comes to the plate, he imagines the ball is Bochy's big head and attacks it with fury, getting hit after hit, culminating in Sunday's game-ending home run against Colorado...

Giants Who Could Win MVP, Cy Young, or Gold Glove in 2014

It’s never too early to start thinking about how the San Francisco Giants may fare in the next year. In the last few seasons, we’ve seen the Giants collect quite a share of individual accolades; namely Buster Posey, who won the MVP award in 2012, and Tim Lincecum, who won Cy Young awards in 2008 and 2009.
