GIANTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Moore eyes strong followup to no-hit bid

Wednesday's series finale at AT&T Park will feature two starting pitchers who have very different recent histories. While right-hander Shelby Miller will make his first appearance for the D-backs since mid-July, Giants lefty Matt Moore will be making his first start since coming within one out of a no-hitter last week.

After Cueto stumbles, Giants' rally falls short

A matchup featuring two of the game's best arms lived up to its billing early on, but Welington Castillo's two-out single derailed Johnny Cueto in a four-run fifth and Zack Greinke allowed one earned run in six innings as the D-backs beat the Giants, 4-3, on Tuesday night at AT&T Park.

Pence returns to the lineup as Giants go for fourth win in five games

Would four of five be considered a roll? Well, yes, particularly if the Giants can beat Zack Greinke. They'll need all hands on deck to do that, and the good news is that Hunter Pence is back in right field after missing 3-plus games with right hamstring tightness. Here's tonight's lineup against the Arizona Diamondbacks: CF Span, LF Pagan, C Posey, SS Crawford, 1B Belt, RF Pence...

Q&A with Steve Decker on Giants' unique challenge of developing power hitters

SAN FRANCISCO – Over the last 12 years, 139 National League players have hit 30 home runs in a season. None of them have been Giants.   The Giants haven’t had a 30-home run hitter since Barry Bonds in 2004. They have come to terms with the fact that, Sunday’s cavalcade of clouts aside, the long ball will not win them many games.   As hitting coach Hensley “Bam Bam” Meulens...

San Francisco Giants Need Consistency in Order to Make the Playoffs

The San Francisco Giants looked threatening to retake first place in the NL West. After their 4-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday August 25th, they came back to AT&T Park and slaughtered the Atlanta Braves in a 7-0 shutout win. They hoped to settle into somewhat of a groove and get a three-game winning streak for the first time in months. But the Braves were able...

San Francisco Giants’ Bullpen Injured Again

The acquisition of right hander Matt Moore couldn’t have come at a better time. Even though Moore struggled from his transition into the National League, he proved through 8.2 solid innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers that he’s made of good stuff. Moore plus lefty Madison Bumgarner and righty Johnny Cueto make for a deadly start to the Giants’ bullpen. But the rest of the...

Don't count out the San Francisco Giants

The even-year magic may finally be kicking in for the San Francisco Giants. After back-to-back wins against the Dodgers and the Braves, the Giants sit one game back from first place in the National League West. Considering the Giants have only won 13 of the last 40 games, two wins is a lot to get excited about. And it could be just the beginning. The most encouraging sign from...

San Francisco Giants inching closer to a record they really don’t want

Entering the All-Star break, the San Francisco Giants had the best record in baseball at 57-33. Since the All-Star break, they rest comfortably in the Major League Baseball cellar with a record of 12-25. Despite Matt Moore’s near no-hitter in a 4-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday night, the Giants’ current slump has them inching towards an all-time record. And...

Giants-Dodgers rivalry has provided plenty of MLB September memories

The San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers have one of baseball’s oldest rivalries, a blood feud that dates all the way back to their days in New York. That shared history of hatred makes it even better when the two teams are fighting for a playoff spot down the stretch. And with just a little over a month to go in the 2016 season, it looks like that’s exactly what will...

San Francisco Giants: Top prospect Austin Slater dominating

The San Francisco Giants are in the middle of a very rough and challenging stretch, and have the worst record in the MLB since the second half of the MLB season.  Acquisitions Eduardo Nunez, Will Smith, and Matt Moore have provided a decent boost to the Giants, most notably Matt Moore almost throwing a no-hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers.  Their presence has provided the...

Dodgers fan toasts Matt Moore losing no-hit bid with dual middle fingers (vid)

San Francisco Giants lefty Matt Moore came about as close as a pitcher can get to tossing a no-hitter, allowing a bloop single to right field to Corey Seager with two-outs in the ninth inning. And a Los Angeles Dodgers fan had a pretty outlandish reaction to his beloved team narrowly avoiding the embarrassment. Yep, as cameras panned the thrilled crowd in Dodger Stadium, said...

Can the San Francisco Giants bust their teamwide slump?

There are few things in sports more unforgiving than a slump in baseball, and when the whole team is slumping, it's difficult for the baseball-watching world not to notice. It’s 2016, and all eyes were on the San Francisco Giants before the season started after acquiring Denard Span and pitchers Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija entering another even-year season. After a mediocre...

San Francisco Giants Fall Two Games from First in NL West

San Francisco Giants: Breaking out of the breakdown

The San Francisco Giants have been the worst team since the All-Star break. That’s not just me being cynical again, the numbers back it up. Since the All-Star break the Giants are 11-23, the worst record in the entirety of Major League Baseball. They are 27th in runs scored, 29th in home runs, 29th in OPS (On-Base % + Slugging %), and 22nd in WAR (Wins-Above-Replacement). So what...

Jake Peavy Jams with Grateful Dead Founding Member

Jake Peavy has been a Grateful Dead fan for years. In fact, a couple of seasons ago, the San Francisco Giants pitcher even missed a team flight so he could catch a concert. So it makes sense that, even in the middle of a pennant race (the Giants are currently sitting atop the National League West), that the righty would do everything he could to jam with the Dead’s longtime bassist...

Bumgarner gives up grand slam, hits HR in same inning

Madison Bumgarner without question is one of better slugging pitchers in Major League Baseball in recent history, if not the very best. The San Francisco Giants ace’s prowess at the plate was on full display during Thursday’s 10-7 win over the New York Mets, although it probably didn’t play out they way Bumgarner would have scripted it. Bumgarner was in the midst of a rough...
