Giants Rally To Win 6-5

There was nothing typical about today’s San Francisco Giants (64-58) and Philadelphia Phillies (54-68) game. Especially if you watch the Giants on a consistent basis you would think that after being down in the sixth inning 5-1, the game was as good as done. Not so fast. After a solo home run in the first inning from Hunter Pence and a not-so-great outing by Giants starter, Tim...

MLB Game Picks - Saturday: August 16, 2014

Even though yesterday finished over .500 (barely), it was a disappointment after the previous three days. In those previous three days, the picks had gone 29-10 including 9-1 on Thursday. That kind of success made me happy. Yesterday did not.And you know what? It was those danged extra-inning games that continue to drive me crazy. There were three of them yesterday and all three...

Giants Offense No Match for Shields

The Giants offense continued to flounder as they wasted a strong start from Tim Hudson and fell to the Royals 5-0. Both Hudson and Kansas City starter James Shields took shutouts into the fifth inning before Hudson gave up a solo home run to Alex Gordon. It turned out that that would be enough to earn Shields his 11th win of the year, as he tossed the complete game shutout. He allowed...

Lackey starts on a high note as Cards beat the Brewers

The day of the 300-game winner in baseball may be long gone, and the day of the 200-game winner is nearly extinct with just two active hurlers over that level in Tim Hudson (213) and injured CC Sabathia (208). The next milepost is the 150-game winner, and there are only four more who are active besides Hudson and Sabathia. The Mets’ Bartolo Colon, foiled at 200 on Sunday in New...

Cubs 7, Dodgers 3: Bad Pitching Is Bad

I think a lot of fans hate hearing about “BABIP” and “regression,” but this is why we talk about it: because it’s real. Just like we all knew that Tim Hudson wouldn’t keep his ERA under 2.00 all season up in San Francisco, it was pretty clear that Josh Beckett wasn’t going to pitch like a top-10 starter all season in Los Angeles, and that was before the hip injury that’s...

Giants Suffer Sixth Straight Loss

There doesn’t seem to be any answer on why the San Francisco Giants (57-50) have been struggling and no one knows the exact reason. They are in the midst of a six game losing streak, with the last five games being at home, and are desperately seeking answers. With the Los Angeles Dodgers (59-47) solely at the helm of first place, the Giants have a lot to figure out and time is...

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, Jul 24

Thursday marks our usual shortened MLB schedule. We have the usual names up top, but a new name brings up the rear. With a projected 3.38 ERA and 1.28 WHIP against the Phillies, it’s not that the system projects Tim Hudson to get lit up. Rather, he just doesn’t have the strikeout punch to make much of an impact in that category and he happens to draw a buzz saw matchup, Cole...

Giants look rejuvenated in topping Marlins for 3rd straight

After the Giants beat the Marlins 5-3 on Saturday night, winner Tim Hudson talked about doing "what it takes to win ballgames, and get back into the race, and try to right the ship." Back into the race? Right the ship? The Giants have the best record in the National League again. They had a 9-22 stretch, yet all they needed to...
