Joe Panik’s extreme night: 5 hits, 0 runs, 0 RBI

Giants second baseman Joe Panik had an odd game last night against the Diamondbacks, going 5-for-5 while scoring zero runs and driving in zero runs. He’s the first player with zero runs and zero RBI in a game with five or more hits since Adam Kennedy in August of 2009. And the only other times that happened within the past 10 years were Aaron Miles in 2008 and Curtis Granderson in 2005.

Daily DraftKings Picks: Wednesday, Sep 3

Yesterday was a disappointing day. Wade Miley did exactly as I expected, but my team was tanked from the start by Shane Greene’s implosion against the Red Sox. Greene had been extremely consistent, but Boston’s big name bats chose that to to erupt. My three hidden players were Joe Panik (14.00 points), Luis Valbuena (14.00 points), and Greene (-6.00 points). Tuesday’s Official...

Panik gets shot in Pence's No. 2 slot in Giants lineup

Manager Bruce Bochy dropped Hunter Pence to fifth in the order Thursday, the first time Pence has batted lower than second since April 19, a move that could portend a significant shift in 2015. A lot of that depends on the development of rookie second baseman Joe Panik, who batted second. "Joe could settle in and be a good two-hole hitter," Bochy said. Bochy has tapped...

Posey, Panik power Giants to end Nats' 10-game run

The old man of 27 still has it. Not that he ever lost it. But based on chatter from certain columnists, bloggers, tweeters and radio talkies, the time is coming for Buster Posey to hang up his shin guards and order a new line of first baseman's mitts. To which Posey says "nonsense." He's actually not saying that. But his performance is. Friday, he hit his 15th...
