3 Championships in 5 Years: I Only Asked For One In My Lifetime

As a die-hard San Francisco Giants fan, I grew up with my share of disappointments. Any Giants fan who grew up in the 1980’s like I did knows exactly what I mean when I list the following names: Jose Oquendo, Terry Steinbach, Salomon Torres, Neifi Perez, Scott Spiezio and Jose Cruz Jr. None of those guys received a Hall of Fame vote after they retired. None were ever great players...

Bullpen Roughed up as Giants Tie the Series at Two

The good news is that the Royals can now win the World Series in front of their home crowd. The other good news is that the Giants could have scored a hundred runs, and the series would’ve still been tied. The bad news is that Madison Bumgarner goes for the Giants tomorrow, and we managed virtually nothing off of him in game one of the series. Tonight’s game got off to...

The art of bunting: Giants use small ball to take NLCS lead

When Game 3 of the National League Championship Series mattered most and the San Francisco Giants just couldn’t get a bunt down, that’s when Gregor Blanco started talking to himself. “Calm down, plant your feet better, and just put it down,” he thought. And then: “Just run as fast as you can.” The St. Louis Cardinals’ defense took care of the rest. “Anybody can swing...

Perez was stationed in left field during San Francisco’s game against the New York Mets at Citi Field. Like many outfielders, Perez wears his sunglasses on top of his hat — not on his face. That move almost...

Oscar Mercado has the game of his life, Will Anderson cuts down the Crosscutters

When the Cardinals drafted Oscar Mercado in the 2nd Round of the 2013 MLB Draft, the consensus view of him was he had a great glove but his bat would have to improve if he were to have a future. His bat didn’t show up last year as he slashed .209/.290/.307 and struck out 21% of the time in the Gulf Coast League. Small sample size, but he’s struggled to start this year, slashing...
