Who Is Going To Replace Vogelsong?

Well, that wasn’t nice to watch. I’ve been rough on Ryan Vogelsong this season because, well, his pitching had been pretty rough.  I thought he’d be the first one to miss a start, but not like this.  Seeing him get hit on the hand pretty much ruined a big win that the Giants (and their fans) needed. Vogelsong’s comeback story will always be one of my favorite stories of...

What’s more worrying is the pitching.  Pitching’s harder to tweak and fix.  Pitching can fluctuate from year to year.  But practically everyone’s fluctuated...

DENVER -- Giants manager Bruce Bochy wasn't sure Tim Lincecum would survive the first inning Sunday.
