WATCH: San Francisco Giants win NL pennant with walk-off homerun

The 2014 postseason will be known for incredibly exciting games (in absence of incredibly exciting series).  But the drama every night is real.  No more real than Thursday in which the San Francisco Giants sealed their third National League pennant in five years with a walk-off victory against the St. Louis Cardinals in front of their home fans.  An unlikely power source in OF...

The Giants’ Role Players Shine

Anybody in baseball could have had these guys. Gregor Blanco, Yusmeiro Petit, Javier Lopez. Sure, the Giants spent a little to get them, but that little has meant a lot to them in return. All three came up huge in Wednesday’s Game Five victory. And the tweaks those players made to get where they are […]

No magic needed: Resourceful, persistent Giants succeed by plan

SAN FRANCISCO — This column is coming to you live from the Voodoo Lounge at AT&T Park, at the corner of Smoke and Mirrors in the city by the bay. I mean, that’s what we’re talking about, right? A mystery train rolling through the fog, taking the Giants on one big serendipitous ride through the NLCS? Not quite. The Giants are good (not great), resourceful (occasionally lucky...

Giants "House Money" run boggles the mind, makes me happy

People will ask me in passing, "Getting nervous for tonight?" or "This must be nerve-wracking. Isn't it crazy?"I've finally come to grips with my actual feelings recently, and they're not what I usually expect to happen.Over the years, I've driven myself to tears and even to dry heaving over playoff sports. You could say I'm pretty into it...

Ranking the top 10 performers in the MLB Playoffs thus far

It's no secret that dark-horse MLB stars step up and showcase their stuff on the October stage every season. Strong postseason performers are able to maintain the same calm, level-headed approach they would employ during a regular season game in April. There’s no questioning the fact that the playoffs present a prime opportunity for players to shine on the big stage...

Processing History

Well, that was historic. Too many people are going to cut this game in half in retrospect, and focus all their talk about Matt Williams taking out Jordan Zimmerman with two out in the 9th.  I’m not going to deny that it was big.  It was huge.  But it’s unfair to drop this game down to one managing decision. The 9 innings afterwards might be boring to some…but it was anything...

Who should be on the Giants Postseason Roster

#455999940 / gettyimages.com Starting Rotation: Madison Bumgarner (18-10, 2.98 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 217.1 IP) Jake Peavy (6-4, 2.17 ERA, 1.04 WHIP since being traded to the Giants) Yusmeiro Petit (1-2, 4.40 ERA, 1.08 WHIP in September) After Jake Peavy the Giants rotation gets shaky very quickly.

Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, Sep 25

Would you believe the hardest part (for me) about playing on DraftKings is simply entering my lineup? For the third time this month, I failed to press the “Confirm Changes” button (or whatever it says) after editing my lineup. I guess you need to not only submit it but then confirm that you want to submit it. Not sure if this happens to anyone else, but it keeps tripping me up...

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, Sep 25

Ah, the last shortened slate of the 2014 season! Max Scherzer is the clear ace of the day and should get the win against Trevor May and the Twins (48.3 W% is pretty high). As for the rest, let’s turn to the rankings: On a weak day of pitching, Yusmeiro Petit grabs high marks in his start against the Giants. I like Petit in this matchup, but his high ranking is fueled by a Steamer...

The day in shutdowns: deGrom, Pagan, Minor

The final three blog posts for the 2014 season will be full of "Player X has been shut down" news, so we apologize in advance for the repetition. Also, remember that starting today, all starting pitchers will be making their final starts whenever they pitch. Watch them, then waive them.

DraftKings – Yous May Roll With Petit

Do other parts of the country say 'yous'? Maybe it's because I have South Jersey roots but I say it a lot. I also say "jawn" more than I probably should and I end up sounding like a crazy person out here in rural Ohio. Yous see that jawn? Yous see Yusmeiro Petit's jawn ($7,100) on that DraftKings jawn? No, Mike, we have no idea what the hell you are talking...

Dodgers 4, Giants 2: Clayton Kershaw, Most Valuable Everything

On Friday night, the Giants whomped the Dodgers, 9-0. On Saturday night, the Dodgers decimated the Giants, 17-0. For what was expected to be a very competitive series between the only two non-train wreck teams in the NL West, this weekend had turned into a hilarious joke that had seen both games all but over from the very start, as Hyun-jin Ryu and Tim Hudson had each lasted just...

Dodgers @ Giant Sept. 14, 2014: Clayton Kershaw looks to clinch series

As Mike said in his recap, last night was fun. Today could be fun for a different reason: It’s Clayton Kershaw day! The Dodgers and Giants have split the first two games of this series — in decided fashion — and Kershaw is on the bump for the rubber game. Yusmeiro Petit goes for the Giants. Here is what ‘Frisco is looking at today. Clayton Kershaw owns the lowest career ERA...

Yusmeiro Petit’s latest feat: 84-pitch complete game

Last season Yusmeiro Petit missed throwing a perfect game by one batter. Last month he set the all-time record for consecutive batters retired with 46. And last night he threw an 84-pitch complete game. Not bad for a 29-year-old former prospect bust turned journeyman turned rotation regular for the Giants, who’ve gotten a 3.61 ERA in 152 total innings from Petit. In holding the...
