Casey McGehee's horrible start isn't new for Giants third baseman

If you heard that a certain Giants third baseman had hit .165 through 24 games with a .253 on-base percentage and a .294 slugging percentage, you would probably assume that that was Casey McGehee. Actually, those are the numbers that Pablo Sandoval put up last season through his first 24 games. McGehee’s numbers are comparable this year. Through Saturday’s game (in which he got...

Are Giants Considering Dealing For Murphy?

According to a report on ESPN New York, San Francisco Giants executive VP Brian Sabean has quietly been at Citi Field during the Mets-Nationals series. Although the reason for Sabean’s visit is not exactly clear, Adam Rubin speculates that the Giants could be looking to upgrade at third base this summer. The Giants traded two pitching prospects to the Miami Marlins over the Winter...

JABO: Casey McGehee, Leadoff Hitter

When the Giants watched Pablo Sandoval leave as a free agent this off-season, they didn’t really have any internal replacements ready to take his place at third base. With most of their money allocated towards re-signing pitchers Jake Peavy, Ryan Vogelsong, and Sergio Romo, the team ended up bargain-hunting for a new third baseman. They […]

VIDEO: Nolan Arenado’s Defense Victimizes the Giants Again

Last week, in a game against the Giants in San Francisco, Rockies’ third baseman Nolan Arenado made a ridiculous catch on a foul popup by Gregor Blanco, catching the ball right as he collided with the tarp and ricocheted partway into the stands. Here’s a video: Well, he’s at it again. Last night in another game against the Giants, this time in Colorado, Arenado made a diving...

Is Casey McGehee the Giants’ Best Option at Third?

The Giants showed some life against the Dodgers, sweeping the division leaders to close out a ten-game homestand. But it was not a promising start to the 2015 season at AT&T Park, as San Francisco managed to go just 4-6 over that span. The biggest reason for the skid? A lack of offensive production, particularly with runners in scoring position. It is early. We know that. There’s...

Giants are 4-10, Let’s Keep Calm and Panik

The San Francisco Giants are in last place. Only two teams in baseball, the Miami Marlins and Milwaukee Brewers, have a worse record than the Giants’ 4-10 mark. The Giants are next-to-last to only the Boston Red Sox in hard-hit ball percentage. Buster Posey, the team’s cleanup hitter and former league MVP, is currently hitting .229 with two extra base hits.

Madison Bumgarner struggles, Casey McGehee Injured in San Franciso Loss to Padres

SAN DIEGO – James Shields was unable to defeat Madison Bumgarner and San Francisco during the 2014 World Series while pitching for Kansas City, losing games one and five.

Giants’ Casey McGehee Exits Game with Left Knee Sprain

SAN DIEGO – Every team experiences injuries throughout the season. The hope is that injuries are spread out and not clumped together. San Francisco is suffering from the latter, as Casey McGehee exited tonight during the first inning with a left knee strain. The injury occurred when McGehee hit a drive to left-center, which Wil Myers chased down. As McGehee exited the batter...

There in the Giants clubhouse, behind the stars you’ve heard everything about, are two rare players. They’ve made a circuit that very few players have made before.

San Francisco Giants: Casey McGehee to replace Pablo Sandoval

The near total absence of Panda hats at the Giants FanFest on Saturday at AT&T Park was “conspicuous, if not a bit eerie” as described by San Jose Mercurcy’s Carl Steward. In November, Pablo Sandoval had signed a five year $95 million contact with the Boston Red Sox as a free agent, shocking fans who had hoped he would remain with San Francisco. With that in mind, it will...

On a Tuesday appearance on MLB Network radio, Sandoval confirmed that he didn’t let the Giants make the final offer, and...
