SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS NEWS

A Long Day’s Wait

Well, say what you will about the trade deadline, at least we got to watch Jim Bowden implode on Twitter. Throughout it all, there were a few Giants rumors.  But in the end, there were no Giants trades to sate Giants fans, and there was much complaining. What, did you expect anything else?  There would’ve been complaining for any realistic trade that could’ve been completed...

San Francisco Giants: Why they made no Trades

The 2014 Trade Deadline was one of the best in recent memory. It saw the Oakland A’s and Detroit Tigers exchange jabs in an arms race for American League supremacy. It saw the St. Louis Cardinals improve themselves with the acquisitions of John Lackey and Justin Masterson. It also saw the San Francisco Giants and Dodgers surprisingly stand pat and do nothing. What was the Giants...

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...

San Francisco Giants: July Slipped Through Like Dan Uggla Fielded It

Somehow not fielded cleanly.Would it be possible for the San Francisco Giants to play all of their games on the road for the rest of the season? While for some clubs this might be seen as a disadvantage, for these guys the disadvantage is playing at home. On the road, Madison Bumgarner is 8-2 with an ERA under two, at home he's 4-6 with an ERA of 5.60. The Giants have a worse...

WATCH: Two rundowns on a walk

So is the official ruling here 1-6-1-3 or 2-1-6-1-3? Whatever the ruling was in the scorebook, it’s now the new let’s get two-outs-on-one-walk play. That is, unless San Francisco Giants’ manager Bruce Bochy has seen this kind of thing before. But since the Giants had lost six straight prior to this game, Bochy will probably go with it this time (mlb.com). Your browser does...
