GIANTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

San Francisco Giants first baseman Brandon Belt accidentally hit the second base umpire with a line drive during the seventh inning of Friday night's game in Colorado.It happened with one out and Giants runner Buster Posey on second. Umpire Paul Nauert had very little time to react when Belt's line drive came his way, so as he put his hands up to protect himself, the ball hit him...

Madison Bumgarner homered off of Clayton Kershaw

This is baseball, and crazy stuff happens in baseball sometimes. One of those crazy things happened on Thursday – Madison Bumgarner and Clayton Kershaw faced off at AT&T Park, and the gates of hell opened during Bumgarner’s first at bat of the afternoon. That’s right – Madison Bumgarner, Giants World Series pitching hero, homered off of Clayton Kershaw, reigning...

Odd year, doesn't matter: Here come the San Francisco Giants

There’s no such thing as an odd year jinx. That’s what San Francisco Giants fans have tried to convince themselves of over the past few years, anyway. The Giants’ success in even years starting in 2010 has belied their struggles in the odd years that followed, either due to bad injuries, bad baseball, or both. For whatever reason, the Giants just couldn’t seem to get it...

ESPN releases 30 for 30 Short about the Giants’ Crazy Crab

The latest ESPN 30 for 30 Short has been released, and it’s a ridiculous 12 minute exploration of the San Francisco Giants’ anti-mascot – the Crazy Crab. In response to the mascot craze of the 70s and 80s, the Giants introduced an anti-mascot, the Crazy Crab, and essentially encouraged their fans to abuse it. The Crab lasted a year, and the man in the suit (Wayne Doba) ended...

San Francisco’s Offense: A Glass Half Full and Empty

The San Francisco Giants’ offense should be better than we have seen thus far. On the other hand, the Giants’ offense should be a lot worse than we’ve seen thus far. But then again, maybe the Giants’ offense is about what we expected it to be. Below is an attempt to determine how much water is […]

Hunter Pence enjoys U2 concert ahead of season debut at AT&T Park

The Giants’ enigmatic right fielder Hunter Pence made his debut at AT&T Park this season on Tuesday following his return from a broken arm. Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News quotes him on his return:“This ballpark is special,” Pence said. “Coming home in front of our fans, it’s an electric atmosphere. … I’m grateful to be back. I have a lot of excitement...

Giants 2, Dodgers 0: One of ‘those’ games

These Dodger-Giant games are the worst. It’s probably a blessing in disguise they didn’t meet in last year’s NLCS. There would have been some folks (including yours truly) who wouldn’t have survived it. This was a pretty lackluster game. The Giants scored their first run in the most Giant of ways. After two were out, Joe Panik singled on a blooper and Angel Pagan followed...

Despite Sluggish Start, San Francisco Continues to Gain Momentum With Offensive Approach

(AP Photo/Ben Margot) The start of the 2015 season for the San Francisco Giants was not one that any reigning World Series team would ever aspire for. First off, they lose all-star third baseman and three...

3 Waiver Wire Adds, Week 7

The last time I wrote this post I touted two Giants, Tim Lincecum and Brandon Crawford. Since then Lincecum pitched a gem in his first start out, and an uneven appearance against the Reds with way too many walks. I’m buying into Lincecum, and I think this is the beginning of a second carrer for him as a different kind of pitcher. As for Crawford, he’s been tearing the cover off...

The top-two teams in the National League West division, not to mention two of the biggest rivals in the NL, will begin a three-game set on Tuesday of this week at AT&T Park.

Pence's return to the Giants reminiscent of McCovey

Hunter Pence homered in his second game back in the Giants’ lineup on Sunday following a 36-game absence due to a broken arm. Giants beat writer Chris Haft points out that a similar thing happened in 1972 with Willie McCovey. McCovey broke his arm in April 1972 and missed 44 games. He actually homered in his first game back with the Giants.What made McCovey’s homer perhaps more...

Professio”Nole” Athlete of the Week: Buster Posey

It was a tough week for Florida State on the baseball diamond as the Seminoles managed just eight total runs in their series with Clemson, but for a former Seminole catcher, supplying offense was not a problem. The Professio”Nole” Athlete of the Week for the week of May 11th through the 17th is San Francisco Giants’ catcher Buster Posey, who homered twice and drove in seven...

Giants' Casilla pitches 'immaculate' inning

Santiago Casilla needed only nine pitches to record a save on Sunday in the Giants’ win over the Reds. Each of those nine pitches were strikes, and they led to strikeouts of three consecutive batters. The act of three strikeouts on three pitches each constitutes an “immaculate” inning. It’s a rare feat, but not as rare as accomplishments like perfect games or four-homer games...

Roster Moves Worth Reporting But Aren’t Worth The 300 Words – Vol. 22

For Baseball Hot Corner’s articles to be recognized by Google, they put a requirement on all blogs that each post/article should be 300 words or more.  That’s usually not a problem for major breaking trades or free agent signing news.  But sometimes, there are trades and signings that do happen that are interesting, but might not need the requisite 300 word analysis.  Nevertheless...

WATCH: Tim Lincecum slips during delivery, eats it

Tim Lincecum tried so hard to strike out Marlon Byrd on Thursday night that he lost his footing and hurled a wild pitch toward home plate that no hitter would have considered swinging at. With a runner on second base, and a 3-2 count on Byrd, Lincecum was looking for a strikeout. However, things didn’t turn out exactly how he had hoped. Lincecum has a violent windup and unorthodox...

The New and Improved Tim Lincecum

Since 2012 Tim Lincecum has been left for dead — the fantasy equivalent of road kill. Over that three-year span Lincecum has a 4.76 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. Without the pedigree of being Tim Lincecum he would have been dumped from the Giants sometime in 2013, but when you are “The Freak” and have the track record of five previous stellar years, you not only get to stay in the...

According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the All-Time home run king is proceeding with a case against MLB and claiming collusion by the league’s owners.

Things were going good for the San Francisco Giants against the Miami Marlins at AT&T Park on Friday night. So good that third baseman Casey McGehee was in such a grand mood that he could flip off starting pitcher Jake Peavy after nailing a grand slam in the bottom of the second inning. In what looked like it could have been a tense situation between teammates was actually...

No one in their right mind would attempt to repeat Jim Hendrix’s guitar-only rendition of The Star Spangled Banner, right? Wrong.

Talk about shredding it. James Hetfield and his...
