Tom Seaver, Yusmeiro Petit, Hunter Strickland and Deception

“Tom Seaver, he had the whole package. Power, deception, command, everything,” said Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti last week before FanFest. We’d been talking about tipping pitches, and deception, but any time you hear about an icon in the same sentence as Yusmeiro Petit, you put down your recording device and start looking at some […]

A dynasty is born, just like we all predicted

Ha. What a lie. No one saw this coming. Well except for me, kinda.I think once the ball got rolling during the NLDS though, we were all convinced that the Giants would take these playoffs and make them their *****.It's been the story all three times-- unfolding differently, yet the same. They just get rolling, the pitching shows up when it needs to, and the rest is history.Of our...

Mind Your Manners: Giants Not So Regal with Royals

Well, we have got a series, folks. Several had wondered going in to Tuesday night’s contest, “Would the Kansas City Royals actually lose a playoff game?” The San Francisco Giants emphatically answered, “Yes” while putting on a 7–1 drubbing in front of the Royals’ faithful—and some weird Marlins fan. Seriously, what was he doing there? Anyway, Game 1 presented us...

Five Brilliant Takeaways From World Series Game 2

Actually I have a dozen brilliant takeaways from the Kansas City Royals 7-2 victory over the San Francisco Giants to conclude the first round of the 2014 World Series. But space considerations (and not wanting to be responsible for people dozing off and damaging their laptops) forces me to keep things focused and tight. For once. Those KC faithful who last Wednesday filled Kauffman...

Grading the Home Runs Against Hunter Strickland

Harold Reynolds on Wednesday, a few pitches into Hunter Strickland‘s appearance: I think they figured out the problems with Strickland. He struggled against the Nationals and actually a little bit against the Cardinals, but, my goodness, against the right-handed hitters, we saw last night and these first two pitches, very impressive.

Hunter Strickland loses his cool, and maybe Giants’ confidence

Man, what is the deal with Hunter Strickland? Typically, the 26-year-old right-hander would be a nice story, the type we love to celebrate during the postseason. Prior to this year, Strickland was a career minor leaguer, drafted by the Red Sox in 2007 and playing in the Boston and Pittsburgh organizations before landing with the Giants last year. After compiling a 2.09 ERA in...

Giants' bullpen melts down in 7-2 loss to Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Giants manager Bruce Bochy signaled to his bullpen and got no relief. Over and over. While the Kansas City Royals showed off their late-inning heat, San Francisco's relievers melted down. Given a sixth-inning tie to preserve, Jean Machi allowed Billy Butler's go-ahead single.

Five keys for the Giants in the World Series

The San Francisco Giants are four wins away from their third World Series championship in five seasons, which is pretty unbelievable considering the franchise went 56 years between their last title and their first one in this current run. It’s been a pretty incredible few years for a team that, for whatever reason, no one ever seems to think can win it all. Standing in the way...
