Buster Posey Manages 1,000th Career Hit with the San Francisco Giants

Buster Posey earned his 1,000th career hit with the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday September 27th. Posey has had a quiet season, only hitting for a .288 batting average. But that doesn’t negate the fact that Posey has been one of the Giants’ main offensive weapons since he joined the team back in 2009. Aside from the 1,000 hits, he’s gone for career statistics like 442 runs...

Will the even year streak end for the San Fransisco Giants?

They have won the World Series three times in the last six years. After championships in 2010, 2012, and 2014, the Giants look to keep the streak going. After watching their cross town rival Dodgers win the NL West just a few days ago, the Giants are hoping to punch their ticket into the NL Wild card game.

When was it really the best time for the Giants to move on from Santiago Casilla?

And would it have mattered? This article starts with a premise, and it goes like this: Santiago Casilla used to be good at his job. If you can’t get past that assumption, we’re going to have a tough time here, but I don’t think it’s controversial in the slightest. The Giants won the World Series in 2014 with Casilla as the closer, and it’s not like anyone spent the offseason...

Gordon Beckham can do an outstanding Jake Peavy impression

The two were teammates on the White Sox, and Beckham had a little fun with Peavy four years ago. It has to be weird, getting traded with a week left in the season. Especially when you know you're not eligible for the postseason. Does Gordon Beckham even, I don't know, root for the Giants in the postseason? He would get a ring, I guess, so sure. But it seems indescribably odd. But...

Giants trade for Gordon Beckham for some reason

The Giants are going to have to clear 40-man roster space for an infielder who will be eligible for only the next six games. Okay. There are confusing transactions, and then there’s this one. The Giants have six games left. It’s not ideal that Eduardo Nuñez is dinged up and unlikely to contribute to them, but we’re talking about six games. Ehire Adrianza, Conor Gillaspie,...

Giants' Cueto could miss next start because of groin strain

LOS ANGELES (AP) Giants pitcher Johnny Cueto could miss his next scheduled start because of a groin strain. The right-hander had an MRI on Wednesday that confirmed a Grade 1 strain, according to manager Bruce Bochy. Bochy says Cueto could be out up to a week, which leaves the All-Star questionable for next week. Cueto (17-5) was forced out of his start Tuesday night in the sixth...

WATCH: Is Madison Bumgarner a bully?

Once again Madison Bumgarner has found a reason to flip his lid as his recent dustup with Yasiel Puig started up due to Puig's "looking" at Bumgarner. Does Bumgarner benefit from a double standard, or does the Giants pitcher just have a tendency to be a jerk who gets into skirmishes all the time? Bonta Hill and Eddie Maisonet explore the possibilities of MadBum being a bully.

Why the San Francisco Giants are on the verge of a historical collapse

It’s not supposed to be this hard for the Giants in an even-numbered year. However, San Francisco is holding on for its postseason life with 11 games remaining on its schedule.Winners of the 2010, 2012 and 2014 World Series, the Giants are in danger of making some dubious history. Their 57 wins before the All-Star break were the most in the majors; their 23 wins since the All-Star...

Jeff Samardzija throws some major shade Tim Tebow’s way

As a Major League Baseball pitcher and former All-American receiver at Notre Dame, Jeff Samardzija can certainly be labeled a two-sport athlete. That makes him a natural person to ask about former NFL player Tim Tebow and his quest to play in Major League Baseball. Samardzija was asked such a question Tuesday. His response could definitely be labeled as salty. Asked Jeff Samardzija...

Time to erase the unwritten rules of baseball

New York City’s beauty is undeniable, and a lot of it draws from its mixture of old architecture and modern buildings. Sometimes those two worlds collide, and the brick of the old falls to the need for the sleek design of the new. In 2009, the Bronx was no exception. Sport fan or not, anyone visiting New York City needs to visit New Yankee Stadium. Not only does it serve...

Graphing a Week of the Giants Bullpen

Last night, the Giants took a 1-0 lead over the Dodgers into the 9th inning. They lost anyway. At this point, the team’s lead-blowing prowess has become so well known that it wasn’t even really a surprise, and the last week has cemented the tire-fire status of the team’s relief corps. They gave up two in the ninth to lose by one last night. They gave up two in the ninth to...

Kershaw: Bumgarner was ‘asking for it’ with Puig

Madison Bumgarner and Yasiel Puig got into it once again on Monday night, and Clayton Kershaw feels the San Francisco Giants ace is the one to blame for the latest confrontation between the two. After Puig hit a weak grounder to end the seventh inning of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ 2-1 win over the Giants, Bumgarner was very animated in celebrating the out. He yelled “f– yeah...

Did The Giants’ Even-Year Luck Just Run Out?

Dodgers manager explains why he pulled Hill during perfect game

Dave Roberts did not take his decision to pull Rich Hill in the middle of a perfect game bid lightly. Apparently fighting tears after his Dodgers shut out the Marlins 5-0 on Saturday, Roberts explained that he removed Hill after seven perfect innings because of concerns about the southpaw's blister resurfacing. Roberts said there was "heat" on Hill's finger, a sign of the blister...
