Expect the Giants to Make Some Serious Changes in the Next Three Weeks

The San Francisco Giants are going through a difficult stretch. But this “stretch” isn’t an aberration, it’s the Giants’ talent and depth finding its true level at the midway point of the 2015 season. Which in a way is a funny thing to say about a 42-40 second place team on July 4th. That’s because the current problems facing San Francisco are broad and foundational and...

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....

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. Meanwhile, in the rest of baseball, teams are continuously making actual baseball moves: dropping...

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...
