Will Tim Lincecum pitch for the Giants again?

Tim Lincecum has pitched his entire nine-year career in San Francisco, has won two Cy Young Awards and three World Series titles with the Giants, and will forever hold a special place in Giants fans' hearts as the lovable "Freak." Yet, as he underwent season-ending hip surgery on Thursday, Lincecum's career in San Fran might be done for good. The 31-year-old quirky right-hander's...

Joe Panik makes wicked barehanded play in rehab game (Video)

In 1978, we had Ozzie Smith. Now in 2015, we have Joe Panik. OK, maybe the comparison is a little bit off, but that’s the only parallel we can draw to possibly comprehend the spectacular play that Panik made in a rehab game on Thursday. The Giants second baseman is currently on assignment with the Sacramento River Cats of Triple-A trying to work his way back from a lower back...

How Does Tim Lincecum Stack Up Among Giants Greats?

Early Thursday morning Tim Lincecum had surgery on his troublesome hip, possibly ending the chapter of his career spent in San Francisco.  The righty is slated for free agency after the season and a return to San Francisco for Lincecum is very much up for debate. If the surgery and subsequent rehab go well, Lincecum should be able to land a one-year deal for next year with a...

Madison Bumgarner is back to October Bumgarner

Madison Bumgarner has been having quite a month of August. He’s posted a 53:4 strikeout-to-walk ratio while allowing only six earned runs in 37.2 innings, and he’s looked almost as unhittable as he did last October, when he relentlessly took the ball for the Giants in high pressure situations during the playoffs. That’s not a coincidence, it turns out, as Bumgarner is currently...

Duvall homers in first at-bat as a Red

Welcome to the Cincinnati Reds Mr. Duvall! One of the big pieces in the Mike Leake trade between the Reds and the San Francisco Giants came through in a big way on Monday night. In the sixth inning of the team's game against the Chicago Cubs, Adam Duvall stepped in for his first at-bat as a Redleg. And, it was a memorable one as Duvall hit a two-run homer putting the Reds up 7-5...

Giants Round Third in the Race for an NL Post Season Slot

Even though the San Francisco Giants are 3 1/2 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West, and even though it’s August 31st, we haven’t quite hit Defcon One in The Giants Cove War Room. Don’t get me wrong. San Francisco is at the point where they need to fiercely focus on winning baseball games, but there are no must-win games on the immediate horizon...

Madison Bumgarner has once again put Giants on his back

August is just about in the books, and the Giants managed to survive a brutal schedule and keep themselves within striking distance of a playoff spot. And while we’re supposed to believe baseball is a team game, they basically have one person to thank for keeping them in contention: Madison Bumgarner. Bumgarner had one of the best months any pitcher could have in August. He...

San Francisco Giants Likely Need To Win NL West Division To Defend World Series Crown

One thing about a defending World Champion is that it is always entertaining to see that team have the chance to go for back-to-back titles in the following season’s playoffs. Unfortunately for the San Francisco Giants, their title defense is trending towards ending in the regular season unless they can surpass the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West division.

Has Tim Lincecum thrown his last pitch for the Giants?

San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum’s hip is giving him so much trouble that he might never pitch again for the franchise. Speaking with Andrew Baggerly of, the two-time Cy Young Award winner revealed he is worried any return to the mound this year could cause further damage. And, since he’s a free agent, this could mean his final pitch with the Giants...

On the inequity of the 2015 NL Wild Card Game

The Wild Card races in the American and National Leagues could hardly be more different. Over in the AL, only four teams are playing at a level that would normally make them contenders, but the rules require that a fifth team qualify for the postseason, so one team from a remarkably mediocre group is going to get rewarded with a playoff spot even though they may end the year with...

Jeremy Affeldt hurt his knee playing with his kids

Details on this are still a bit sparse, but it’s tentatively going into the “stupid baseball injury” Hall of Fame. Giants reliever Jeremy Affeldt hurt his knee…while he was playing with his kids. I’ll let the AP report take it away. The Giants placed left-hander Jeremy Affeldt on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday after he sustained a left knee subluxation while playing...

What makes Bruce Bochy and Joe Maddon great?

With the Cubs in San Francisco to face the team just behind them in the wild-card race, it makes sense to compare the two managers. After all, they both ended up within the top five in a recent survey, and their teams have both found success in recent years. Though they were born just a year apart, their styles are different enough that they seem to be a study in contrasts...

San Francisco Giants: Marlon Byrd providing a spark
