'Just one of those days' for Brewers pitching

MILWAUKEE -- Inning by inning on Wednesday, the Milwaukee Brewers made loud outs, spraying line drives and deep fly balls all over the place with only one run to show for it through six innings. The offense eventually got to Ryan Vogelsong and the San Francisco bullpen for four runs, but a big inning early and another one late helped the Giants to a 7-4 victory over the Brewers at...

Like Morse, just enjoy the ride

There's really something to be said for being able to totally relax and enjoy what's going on around you. It's the way you feel on vacation, the way you feel when you gaze out at something beautiful with nowhere to be; your phone only making an appearance to take a picture because there's no service anyway.It's an odd feeling-- almost surreal when it happens...

I just wish...

San Francisco Giants: Week Two Review

"Say it wrong one more time, I double dog dare you!"My hope for this week is that San Francisco Giants play-by-play man Duane Kuiper stops calling Mike Morse “Michael Morris.” I get it, the first couple of days, sure, “Morse” becomes “Morris.” But this is two weeks in. Kuip takes pains to get Jean Machi's name right (at least it seems like it), but Morse...

A healthy Morse comes to camp enthusiastic

Reactions to the Michael Morse Signing

Reactions to the Giants signing Michael Morse:Giants take a gamble on Mike Morse - Me at BASGThe Giants are taking a gamble that he can play the Pat Burrell role from 2010, three at-bats and then a late defensive replacement while providing some home runs down the lineup. Perhaps that’s not a bad bet to make, but it’s far from a sure thing. If he stays healthy and hits the Giants...
