Carlos Gomez and Madison Bumgarner shared a tense moment during a third-inning at-bat in Tuesday’s game, one that Gomez didn’t take too kindly to, expressing as much after the game. After the Milwaukee Brewers outfielder fouled off a fastball on an 0-1 count from the San Francisco Giants ace, he yelled at himself in frustration....Read More The post Carlos Gomez on Madison Bumgarner’s...

Giants' McGehee helpful toward Duffy despite losing job to him

Even before Matt Duffy took over for him at third base, Casey McGehee has been nothing but hepful to the rookie. According to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News, one of the first things that McGehee did after he was designated for assignment by the Giants, was tell Duffy not to feel any remorse and gave him his phone number in case wanted any advice. Baggarly quotes Duffy...

San Francisco Giants cut Casey McGehee from Roster

32-year-old Casey McGehee, former third baseman for the San Francisco Giants, took a step down to play for the Triple-A. The Giants are pounding out 17 games in 16 days before their next day off on June 4, which is not an easy task. San Francisco stressed the need to have depth in their pitching, not leaving much room for McGehee to keep his spot on the roster and making way for...

Could 2015 be Tim Lincecum’s Year of Redemption?

(Mandatory Credit: USA TODAY) The MLB strikeout-leading, Cy Young-winning years of Tim Lincecum’s monstrous fastball seem a distant memory, but, after a few solid starts this season, San Francisco Giants fans are wondering—hoping—if perhaps the old “Freak” of yore will make a return. Sadly, the prospect of Lincecum re-emerging as one of baseball’s best pitchers is virtually...

Giants' Bochy going to the bullpen more frequently than usual

Giants manager Bruce Bochy has been calling upon his bullpen quite often this year. According to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News, no National League reliever has recorded more outs than George Kontos, who’s on pace to pitch 89 innings this season. That would be the most for a Giants reliever since 2004. Meanwhile, Kontos along with Jean Machi and Javier Lopez are all...

Giants DFA Casey McGehee, Should Mets Bite?

Third baseman Casey McGehee was designated for assignment by the San Francisco Giants on Sunday. Acquired in a trade with the Miami Marlins this past offseason to replace Pablo Sandoval as the everyday third baseman, McGehee has been absolutely awful at the plate. In 110 mostly bad at-bats, McGehee hit .200 with a .248 on-base, .282 slugging, and just nine RBI. He’s struck out...

Madison Bumgarner homered off of Clayton Kershaw

This is baseball, and crazy stuff happens in baseball sometimes.

Odd year, doesn't matter: Here come the San Francisco Giants

There’s no such thing as an odd year jinx. That’s what San Francisco Giants fans have tried to convince themselves of over the past few years, anyway. The Giants’ success in even years starting in 2010 has belied their struggles in the odd years that followed, either due to bad injuries, bad baseball, or both. For whatever reason, the Giants just couldn’t seem to get it...

ESPN releases 30 for 30 Short about the Giants’ Crazy Crab

The latest ESPN 30 for 30 Short has been released, and it’s a ridiculous 12 minute exploration of the San Francisco Giants’ anti-mascot – the Crazy Crab. In response to the mascot craze of the 70s and 80s, the Giants introduced an anti-mascot, the Crazy Crab, and essentially encouraged their fans to abuse it. The Crab lasted a year, and the man in the suit (Wayne Doba) ended...

San Francisco’s Offense: A Glass Half Full and Empty

The San Francisco Giants’ offense should be better than we have seen thus far. On the other hand, the Giants’ offense should be a lot worse than we’ve seen thus far. But then again, maybe the Giants’ offense is about what we expected it to be. Below is an attempt to determine how much water is […]

Giants 2, Dodgers 0: One of ‘those’ games

These Dodger-Giant games are the worst. It’s probably a blessing in disguise they didn’t meet in last year’s NLCS. There would have been some folks (including yours truly) who wouldn’t have survived it. This was a pretty lackluster game. The Giants scored their first run in the most Giant of ways. After two were out, Joe Panik singled on a blooper and Angel Pagan followed...

3 Waiver Wire Adds, Week 7

The last time I wrote this post I touted two Giants, Tim Lincecum and Brandon Crawford. Since then Lincecum pitched a gem in his first start out, and an uneven appearance against the Reds with way too many walks. I’m buying into Lincecum, and I think this is the beginning of a second carrer for him as a different kind of pitcher. As for Crawford, he’s been tearing the cover off...

WATCH: Tim Lincecum slips during delivery, eats it

Tim Lincecum tried so hard to strike out Marlon Byrd on Thursday night that he lost his footing and hurled a wild pitch toward home plate that no hitter would have considered swinging at. With a runner on second base, and a 3-2 count on Byrd, Lincecum was looking for a strikeout. However, things didn’t turn out exactly how he had hoped. Lincecum has a violent windup and unorthodox...
