Scenes from a debacle

In the fifth inning last night, this game was a joke. Yusmiero Petit was terrible for the Giants from the start, and then they relieved him with Jake Dunning. Dunning is the guy that was just called up to take the place of Matt Cain and his minor league numbers might as well spell “mop-up guy” out in huge letters. Dunning immediately threw two run-scoring wild pitches and only...

San Francisco Giants: It’s bullpen time

San Francisco Giants: It’s bullpen timeEven though the San Francisco Giants had a disappointing 2013 season the one thing on their team that stayed consistent was their bullpen. The Giants bullpen ranked 9th in all of baseball with a 3.30 ERA last season. However, it could have been even better if not for some setbacks in the bullpen. The most important issue with the bullpen last...

Postgame Wrap: Giants Finally Remember How to Baseball, But Too Little Too Late

Update: I wrote this whole wrap after the sixth inning, assuming the worst. And hey, I was right aside from the last hurrah in the ninth. Obligatory LOLeague and BeatLA. Things looked good for a while there. The Giants hung with the Puigs for five whole innings, and a small part of me wondered if Mike Kickham would turn out to be some kind of crazy Dodger-killer, some secret weapon...

Josh’s Top 30 Prospects: 20-11

20-Adam Duvall-3B Duvall had one of the biggest years in 2011 among Giants minor leaguers. An 11th round pick out Louisville, Duvall was the everyday 3B at Augusta and hit .285/.385/.527 finishing 5th in the league in home runs. The main reason I can’t rank him higher is because of concerns that he may have been beating up on younger/weaker competition and there are concerns with...
