Pat Burrell homered in khakis before Wednesday’s Giants game

Pat Burrell is now a Giants scout, and clearly, he’s kept himself in shape during his retirement. Also, check out manager Bruce Bochy dancing behind the plate in an attempt to distract him. Wonderful.

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...

Reactions To The Francoeur Signing

What do I think of the Giants signing Jeff Francoeur? I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t see it having a major impact.  I was wrong, after all, about Pat Burrell. Francoeur has had a lot of bad years and only one good one over the last half-decade or so.  He’s decent against left-handed pitching only.  He’s got mediocre defense.  I don’t see him catching the Giants magic...

It’s The Ultimate Reclamation Project

It’s the small moves that make a season and a team. I admit, when the Giants picked up Ryan Vogelsong, I thought it was to sell tickets in Fresno.  I was wrong. When the Giants found Pat Burrell on the scrap heap, I expected it to be a non-factor in anything.  Nope. Cody Ross?  It seemed like sacrificing a roster spot to stop a rival.  Well, not just. Marco Scutaro?  A fine...

The NL West leading (4.5 games) San Francisco Giants came home yesterday after going 5-1 on the road in Houston and Chicago.   Yesterdays game seemed like it was going to be a frustrating let down as the Giants blew a 4-0 lead to be down 7-4.
