Follow-Up of Hunter Pence’s New Contract

Back on September 24, 2013 I wrote a piece that previewed the contract breakdown between Hunter Pence and the San Francisco Giants. As I do not work in the Giants front office I could only estimate the deal from my research. So let’s see where I was right, and wrong… To begin, Hunter […]

Pence and Lincecum Offseason Preview

With only 6 games left there is no doubt that the Giants are thinking about next season. Well, they’ve probably been thinking about next season since the end of July when, all of a sudden, the defending champs were 10 games out. Even though this season the Giants were, and I guess still are, […]

While the A’s make their playoff push, the Giants are beginning to think about next season. Former MLB player Wladimir Balentien, who just broke the single season home run record in Japan, has reportedly become a major target for the Giants this offseason. Balentien was once a top prospect (he played in the […]

It is not hard to remember the years of “Fear the Beard” in San Francisco. No one was more popular and representative of the Giants success in 2010 than former Giants closer Brian Wilson, but now he’s gone. Just years later one of the most beloved athletes in San Francisco is gone. Yea he was […]

The lack of big-time prospects in the Giants’ farm system has been well-documented. Although Kyle Crick has emerged as a possible future star this season, there is still little to be excited about in the rest of the organization. This is why Giants fans have resorted to being excited about a relief […]

With August coming to a close and the San Francisco Giants hanging at the bottom of the NL West standings, it is time to look to the offseason and figure out how to repeat 2012 and forget 2013. It’s appropriate that the Red Sox just visited San Francisco because they are in the […]

Of all the possible moves bandied about for the Giants around the trade deadline this season, the only one that was likely to have a truly significant impact on the direction of the franchise moving forward was a possible Hunter Pence deal. Pence was the only piece the Giants had capable of bringing […]

What Went Wrong With Tim Lincecum?

The cute names have passed. The story about his father putting a dollar bill on the ground has grown old. So what happened to the kid that won consecutive Cy Young awards in ’08 and ’09? For Tim Lincecum, I’m sure this is the question that has infected his thoughts every time he takes the […]

But, have you ever wondered just how much Bruce Bochy drinks on a weekly basis? Let’s take a look at the relevant numbers: According to Fox News, the average American consumes […]
