There is always a bit of a lull between the end of the minor league playoffs in September and the start of the annual top prospects lists in early November. Because of that gap, I’m breathing new life into an old feature that I wrote for the site in FanGraphs’ infancy back in 2008 and 2009.
The series ‘A Minor Review of 2013′ will look back on some of the major happenings...

Last night’s game was a frustrating one till after the 7th inning. There was twice in the game that the San Francisco Giants had a runner at 3rd base with no outs, and weren’t able to score them. However, the G-men were able to tie the game in the bottom of the 8th, and then won it in the bottom of the 9th with a walk-off walk!
Prior to last...
Tim Lincecum and David Price pitched as expected against struggling lineups. Then, with the former Cy Young Award winners out of the game in the 10th inning, the San Francisco Giants couldn't get anybody out.

The San Francisco Giants weren’t able to close the door and sweep the D-Backs. However, they were able to start the 2nd half off with a series win over the first place NL West leaders.
Reliever Jeremy Affeldt has a strained groin and will be out 4-6 weeks. Jean Machi is taking Affeldt’s place on the roster.

As I write this, the Giants sit within striking distance of the NL West at 5.5 GB. They're still 7 games under .500, and they still aren't hitting on all cylinders, but they're alive.
With Timmy's no-hitter heading into the break and grabbing 2 of 3 to open the "so-called second half" (as Dave Flemming would put it) against Arizona, things appear to be...
San Francisco Giants lefty reliever Jeremy Affeldt will be sidelined up to six weeks after he strained his left groin Saturday, feeling and hearing a pop on a pitch against Arizona.
Affeldt was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, while San Francisco recalled right-hander Jean Machi from Triple-A Fresno to take his place.
Affeldt, who already missed time with a strained right...

It took 13 innings for the San Francisco Giants to lose 5-3 against their division rival San Diego Padres on Monday night.
Barry Zito struck out 8 through 5.2 innings of work at AT&T Park. He gave up the Padres’ first run after opposing pitcher Edinson Volquez started off the third inning with a double down the left field line.
The Giants came back in the bottom of the fourth...
Maybe I’m weird. I’ve always taken pride in the fact that AT&T Park has no patterns cut into the outfield. It’s just pure green. I’ve always loved that about the park, and I hated it and feared it would change when the WBC came and they had cut a pattern into the grass.
But when the season started, we were back to pure green….except for the deep outfield. For...
In a pair of moves Monday, the San Francisco Giants have activated left-handed pitcher Jose Mijares from the restricted list while optioning right-handed pitcher Jean Machi to Triple-A Fresno. FFLockerRoom’s sympathies to Mijares in the loss of his grandmother.
The post San Francisco Giants Activate Jose Mijares, Option Jean Machi appeared first on FFLockerRoom | NFL - MLB News...
Best known in his brief tenure with the Giants for bombing the bullpen with deadly gas, Jean Machi has been optioned by the club to Triple-A Fresno. Creating awkward situations with Jose Mijares might have been the only thing Machi did wrong with the Giants, however. The right-hander surrendered just two runs in nine relief appearances. The Giants, though, did not have any room after...

While the San Francisco Giants were able to manage a 6-4 win in Arizona against the Diamondbacks Monday night, it was reliever Jean Machi who earned his first win of 2013, instead of the Giant’s starter and resident staff ace Matt Cain.
Once again Cain wasn’t a factor in
If you missed out on this week’s big baseball news, San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Jean Machi farted in the Giants bullpen. This is seriously the only important thing that happened in baseball this week. What are we supposed to write about, Derek Jeter being injured? Alex Rodriguez being cleared to walk on a treadmill?Actually, that is kinda funny. So hey, while I think...
When it comes to what these guys can do on the mound they are alright, but Wednesday night it was the actual bullpen itself that stunk. Reliever Jean Machi channeled his inner child by letting one rip--yes, the man passed gas while sitting there among his teammates.
It must have been pretty bad; just check out Jose Mijares's reaction.
San Francisco Giants rookie relief pitcher Jean Machi was just called up from Triple-A a few days ago, and wasted no time making a first impression on his teammates, although maybe not in the most conventional way.
Machi farted in the bullpen during Wednesday night's game against the Milwaukee Brewers, with the video evidence being the priceless reaction of teammate Jose Mijares...
Let's be honest, farting is pretty funny on all levels except for the person who smells it.
During last night's MLB tilt between Milwaukee Brewers and the San Francisco Giants, Giants relief pitcher Jean Machi appeared to let one rip in the San Francisco bullpen.
Watch the reaction of fellow relief pitcher Jose Mijares as he figures out who passed the gas:
What happens in the bullpen stays in the bullpen — unless it gets caught by cameras or wafts up into the crowd.
On Wednesday, Giants reliever Jean Machi, who made his MLB debut in 2012 as a 30-year-old, was acting more like a 13-year-old when he let one rip in the San Fran bullpen, much to the chagrin of teammate Jose Mijares.
Check out the reaction from Mijares in the GIFs...
The Giants’ Jean Machi is a normal man, except he is really good at baseball. He is so normal in fact that he has no problem passing gas in the dugout just a few days after being called up from Triple-A ball. The reaction of Jose Mijares is just perfect.

During Wednesday night’s game between the San Francisco Giants and Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park, an incident occurred between relief pitchers Jose Mijares (right) and Jean Machi that seems to be something of a smelly situation.
Mijares appears to catch a whiff of some sinister stench, grimaces and proceeds to slide further down the bench, away from Machi.
Machi has the look...
WHO DEALT IT?
The Giants just called up Jean Machi on Wednesday, and it looks like the reliever is already becoming fast friends with Jose Mijares. Mijares just learned a brutal, sour lesson that the silent ones are always the deadliest. By the time the hot air had risen it was too late. We don’t think he’ll be sitting next to Machi in the bullpen anymore. And here’s more of the aftermath...
Alright, so which Giants pitcher did it? Was it Jose Mijares, who’s on the left and gets blamed for the fart, or was it Jean Machi, who was on the right and smelled it first?
The world may never find out.
