Giants Have a Window to Begin Rebooting for 2015

The clock is running on the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline and inside the San Francisco Giants front office that ticking noise must sound like thunder. And well it should. The Giants have a rare opportunity, right now, not only to improve their 25 man roster on the off chance they grab a Wild Card spot in October, but more importantly they can begin the complex process of re...

SF Giants DFA Eric Surkamp

We recently talked about how the San Francisco Giants are selling Brett Pill’s contract to a foreign ball club. The talks began when the team signed Michael Morse, and needed to clear up space on the 40-man roster. So Morse is taking Pill’s place, right? Wrong. Since Pill has not yet reached an agreement with the Kia Tigers of the Korean Baseball League, the Giants...

Giants Sell Brett Pill's Contract to a Korean Team

The Brett Pill era is coming to an end in San Francisco. And unlike former players like Brian Wilson and Juan Uribe, the Giants won’t have to face him: because he’s headed to Korea. The Giants have agreed to sell Pill’s contract to the Kia Tigers of the Korean Professional League. And before people mention how rough it is to get traded to Korea, you cannot sell a contract...

Predicting the Opening Day 25-Man Roster

For all intents and purposes, the San Francisco Giants have 41 players right now. They’re only allowed to have 40, but they’ve yet to clear space for Michael Morse. As we discussed yesterday, Brett Pill could likely be the odd man out, but it could be a number of different players. Either way, that 41 needs to become 25 for the opening day active roster. So who will...

Giants Looking to Trade Brett Pill

In baseball, every little bit of exciting news comes with some sad news. Take the Michael Morse signing, for example. We’re not exactly fans of the acquisition, but there can be little denying that it’s exciting. It means we have a new player, and it means that we can spend the next few months hoping he’ll return to his 30-dinger a season ways. But every give...

Drugs have always been in baseball

Twitter was quite alive last night first with the news of Brian McCann signing with the Yankees and shortly after with the news that, apparently, Jhonny Peralta is set to sign a big deal with the Cardinals. The latter provided much more irony and angst since Peralta got caught up in the Biogenesis scandal and lost fifty games of his season in 2013. Despite paying his penalty, the...

Giants rally to beat Kershaw, Dodgers 4-2

For one charmed night the Giants had the Midas touch. In a 4-2 victory Friday against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers every break went the Giants' way from a meek swing by Brett Pill that scored two runs to the Adrian Gonzalez shot that deflected off Sergio Romo's foot and somehow ended the game. They made their own luck too with six excellent innings from Madison Bumgarner...

Reports From Under the Bus: SF Giants News, Notes & Comments

In a way I don't blame Giant fans for reacting irrationally after watching their championship team capsize and completely tank this year. Those of us who reveled in winning the 2010 and 2012 World Series are finding it hard to adjust to shuffling through bumtown in a pair of tattered orange sneakers. While the Los Angeles Dodgers are soaring and have only one big problem...

Giants end their five-game losing streak with a 9-2 victory over the Phillies

The Giants received huge contributions from fresh blood Wednesday night. Roger Kieschnick’s debut was highly productive and Brett Pill finally brought the bat he used to mash the Pacific Coast League all season. But the moves that management didn’t make might have been just as inspirational in the Giants’ 9-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. GM Brian Sabean didn...

The Giants Have Time to Adjust: Part 2 -- Offense

Believe me, I understand. The mainstream sports media angle about the 2013 San Francisco Giants is all about the failure of their starting pitching. It's irresistible because these are virtually the same pitchers who led San Francisco to World Championships in 2010 and 2012. But with 105 baseball games yet to be played I think the jury should still be deliberating, especially...
