Matt Duffy is baseball’s biggest surprise

Guys drafted in the 18th round aren’t supposed to amount to much. Every once in a while you get lucky, but for the most part teams are drafting for organizational depth by then: players who might move up a level or two in the minors, but nothing more. It’s where teams draft a light-hitting infielder with a .253/.305/.289 overall college slash line with no career home runs....

Meet Matt Duffy, An Underrated Baseball Player

When the San Francisco Giants won the World Series a season ago, they seemed to have everything going their way, but there was one question that had yet to be solved and that was their situation at third base. Pablo Sandoval, who had manned the hot corner and made a name for himself in San Francisco, was a free agent. There were people, who ended up being right, who said Sandoval...

Giants’ Rollercoaster Search for Consistency, Runs

The San Francisco Giants have spent the first sixty-six games of the 2015 season in a rambling search for their identity and for consistent run production. After 40% of the season in the books, and a respectable 35-31 record through June 16th, the Giants have the feel of a Spring Training squad still seeking a team identity, with the additional baggage of several unresolved foundational...

Stats Don’t Lie: Matt Duffy outplaying Pablo Sandoval in 2015

When the San Francisco Giants lost Pablo Sandoval this past offseason, it was viewed as a major loss and rightfully so. They had little-to-no depth behind him at third base and ended up trading for Casey McGehee to replace him, which turned out to be a bad move. With McGehee now in Triple-A, the team has the inexperienced Matt Duffy starting at third base and he has been a blessing...

Giants Bats Cold at Home This Season

In the offseason, the Giants went about filling out their offense with high-contact, low-power types like Nori Aoki and Casey McGehee. The consensus opinion among baseball analysts going into the 2015 season was that the Giants would rank dead last in the power stats. They currently rank in the bottom half of teams in the National League in home runs, but don’t let that fool you...

Two Giant Developments: Hitting Shows Signs of Life and Roster Improves

Few things happen in the fan-centric, old school world of the San Francisco Giants. It’s a staid place where players get contracts for being fan favorites or for just being inexpensive, and those fans become extremely upset on the rare occasions when those players are cut or traded.

Trade targets: who might possibly be on first for the Cardinals?

The St. Louis Cardinals took a big hit to their lineup this week, losing first baseman Matt Adams to a torn quad muscle for most (likely all) of the season. The Cards don’t really have an in-house replacement for him (unless you count Mark Reyonlds, and… you probably shouldn’t count Mark Reynolds), which leaves them with a fairly large hole to fill. The Cardinals currently...

Even before Matt Duffy took over for him at third base, Casey McGehee has been nothing but hepful to the rookie. According to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News, one of the first things that McGehee did after he was designated for assignment by the Giants, was tell Duffy not to feel any remorse and gave him his phone number in case wanted any advice. Baggarly quotes Duffy...
