Susac Looks Like Posey And It’s Awesome

We have all had that experience where someone we know starts to emulate us. And not just emulate, but copy every. single. little. thing. At first it’s cute and then even humorous. After a while, it was nothing but obnoxious. For me, it was my youngest sister. Maybe for you, a younger brother or a cousin. Or that neighbor kid who tried to keep up as you pedaled away with your friends...

No, Thank You. I’d Rather Not Trade For Jeff Samardzija

Three Trade Targets for the 2014 San Francisco Giants

Their record, is good for first in the NL West, and is also tied for the best record in the National League. The success is due in large part to much improved offense and a strong bullpen. Led by an emerging Brandon Belt (.266/.316/.516 with 9 HRs), new...

SF Giants Rumors: Opening Series Has Come and Gone

​ Photo Credit: Marko Realmonte The Opening Series has come and gone, and the San Francisco Giants managed to take 3 out of the 4 games in Arizona. We’ve learned that the instant replay isn’t going as smooth as it should be.

SF Giants Rumors: Mark Teahen Released, No Pablo Sandoval Extension In Place, Marco Scutaro Opening Day

  Photo Credit: Mike Sandoval’s Twitter Account (mikesandoval0807) The San Francisco Giants have released infielder/outfielder Mark Teahen. When Teahen was signed, he wasn’t given an invite to Spring Training and wasn’t expected to compete for a spot on the Opening Day Roster. With only 11 days left till Opening Day, it doesn’t look like the Giants and Pablo Sandoval are...

Why Hunter Pence is worth $90 million

  Credit: Matt Hubbard – @hubbard_photography Last September the San Francisco Giants extended their right fielder Hunter Pence for five years and $90 million.  At first glance it seems like a fairly large overpay and yes, I believe the Giants overpaid to get Pence, but these days teams are having to pay top dollar to keep their potential free agents.  In my opinion, the biggestâ...

SF Giants Rumors: Barry Bonds Reports To Giants Camp

The Home Run King Barry Bonds reported to the San Francisco Giants Spring Training camp today. This is the first time Bonds has put a Giants uniform on since his last game in 2007. He then sat down with the media for about thirty minutes to answer whatever questions they wanted to throw his way.   When asked how it felt to put the uniform back on, Bonds said “Feels reallyÂ...

SF Giants Rumors: Guillermo Mota Retires, Brandon Crawford Reaches Agreement With Giants

SF Giants Rumors: Michael Morse Power, Pablo Sandoval Contract, Hunter Pence Contract, Etc

Credit: Steven Robles – SF Giants Rumors The baseball season is finally back, at least from a Spring Training standpoint.

Well… it’s because he robbed outfielder Michael Morse of a home run...

SF Giants Rumors: SF Giants 2014 Opening Day Starter Is…

With the start of the 2014 season just a little over a month away, manager Bruce Bochy has announced his starting rotation. Madison Bumgarner has been named the San Francisco Giants Opening Day starter.

SF Giants Rumors: Barry Bonds Giants Instructor, Giants Sign Tyler Colvin

The Home Run King Barry Bonds is going to be in Scottsdale March 9-17 as an instructor for the San Francisco Giants. Bonds have never officially retired, but I would say showing up as a special instructor means you’re not going to get penciled in the Spring Training lineup. With that said, you sure are missed Barry!   The 49 year-old Bonds last played in September 2007. That...

SF Giants Rumors: GB Brian Sabean Talks Pablo Sandoval Contract, Plus Other Giants News
