San Francisco Giants Rookies Get Hazed, Forced To Walk Around Times Square ‘Naked’

They were in New York...

Boston Red Sox at San Francisco Giants Pregame Notes 8/21

A night after walking off on a Marco Scutaro walk, the San Francisco Giants send out Barry Zito (4-8, 5.34 ERA). It will be his 22nd start of season for the lefty, but his first since July 30 when he lasted just 3.1 inning against the Philadelphia Phillies. The veteran has made four appearances out of the bullpen since his last starting assignment. Zito is actually 4-1 with a 3.18...

Giants top Red Sox 3-2 on very questionable walk-off walk

When a team such as the Giants is "dying for a win" as Marco Scutaro put it it cannot quibble about the method. When the Giants beat the Red Sox 3-2 at China Basin on Tuesday night on Scutaro's two-out bases-loaded walk in the ninth the crowd was silent because everyone thought the pitch was a strike. Scutaro did not immediately jog to first. Roger Kieschnick was just...

​Scutaro ​G​ets day ​O​ff, Bochy ​H​appy ​W​ith ​S​wings of Belt, Kieschnick

The “Marco Scutaro batting leadoff” experiment might have come to a quick end.   Scutaro is 0-for-9 in two games since Bruce Bochy took the San Francisco Giants leadoff production problem into his own hands, inserting the team’s everyday two-hitter into the first spot in the lineup. But after a second straight hitless night, Bochy could ditch the plan as quickly as it began...

Giants end their five-game losing streak with a 9-2 victory over the Phillies

The Giants received huge contributions from fresh blood Wednesday night. Roger Kieschnick’s debut was highly productive and Brett Pill finally brought the bat he used to mash the Pacific Coast League all season. But the moves that management didn’t make might have been just as inspirational in the Giants’ 9-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. GM Brian Sabean didn...

Down on the Farm: Juan Perez

After waiting since May 25th for Angel Pagan‘s inflamed hamstring to heal after his epic dash around the bases to beat Colorado in extra innings at AT&T Park, the Giants finally relented and placed him on the DL, retroactively, ensuring he can rejoin the team on Wednesday against Pittsburgh if he is ready.   In the meantime, rather than promoting red-hot prospect Roger Kieschnick...

2013 Top 10 Prospects: 7 Through 4

Unlike last year, we won’t be doing a special comic for number 1, so four prospects today. It might seem like I’m down on a lot of prospects this year.  Well, to be perfectly clear, 2012 was not a good year for Giants prospects.  Many top prospects had disappointing years, at best.  Only Kyle Crick and Clayton Blackburn really had huge years.
