GIANTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

San Francisco Giants: Key in winning the West?

Injuries have been a major factor in the San Francisco Giants’ 2014 campaign and while they may have thrown a monkey wrench in the Giants’ World Series aspirations, they have also provided the opportunity for players like Joe Panik and Andrew Susac to emerge and prove they could be a big part of both the ball club’s present and future. Having just 157 career major league AB’s...

San Francisco Giants: Will Buster Posey Carry the Giants?

Throughout the ups and downs of the 2014 baseball season, one thing remained a constant. Buster Posey, the San Francisco Giants best and most well-known player, had been pretty average by the standard that he set for himself. It’s hard to get mad at a guy who’s been hitting a consistent 280 throughout the year and getting on base at a solid clip. However, he wasn’t hitting...

Record-Making Weirdness

Yusmeiro Petit now owns a pretty solid Major League Baseball record. Yusmeiro Petit. One day, I’ll tell my kid I saw Yusmeiro Petit pitch.  She’ll say “Who?”  I’ll tell a guy in my fantasy football league in New York in three days that I saw Yusmeiro Petit pitch, and he’ll say the same thing. He has a career 4.84 ERA.  This year, at 29, is his first spending a full...

Greg Amsinger called Buster Posey’s walk off homer

During the end of the Rockies-Giants game, MLB Tonight anchor Greg Amsinger said that he “got that feeling in my bad knee” about Buster Posey, inferring that he’d hit a walk off. As Juan Nicasio began his delivery to the plate, Amsinger then predicted we’d be hearing a Duane Kuiper home run call. Sure enough… That is pretty awesome, and the in studio reaction of Amsinger...

A Good Reason To Watch Yusmeiro Petit Pitch

The Giants can take no more. Well into Tim Lincecum‘s third straight year of mediocrity — since the start of 2012, he’s got a 134 ERA- and 114 FIP- – and most of the way through the first year of his 2/$35m extension signed last winter, San Francisco will skip him in the rotation and instead […]

Tim Lincecum: Now a Reliever, Maybe Needs to Close

After a miserable start to the second half — opposing batters are hitting .331/.422/.622 against him since the All-Star break — the Giants have finally removed him from the rotation and will experiment with Lincecum as a relief pitcher. Of course, Lincecum famously dominated out of the pen […]
