DraftKings: Late Night Peavy Chalk Show

We have a full 15 game slate this evening, with the last game of the night featuring the Phillies taking on Peavy and the Giants at AT&T Park.

If you are out this evening, a cool party trick you can do is to open your DraftKings app and show your friends how many points Jake Peavy has. Over his last...

SF Giants: The Numbers and the Rest of the Way

What we constantly hear in the baseball media-sphere throughout the first half of every MLB season: “It’s just too early to say anything.” What we constantly hear from the All Star break to mid-September: “Hey, there’s still a lot of baseball left to play.” At the risk of saying anything that might prove later to be incorrect, let’s talk San Francisco Giants wins and...

Bumgarner in Derby could raise money for charity

Madison Bumgarner is without question one the best power-hitting pitchers in the major leagues. So much so that the San Francisco Giants ace has expressed interest in competing in the Home Run Derby at the 2016 All-Star Game at San Diego’s Petco Park. While the determination regarding whether or not Bumgarner will get the chance to showcase his home run-hitting prowess remains...

Are Injuries Catching up with the San Francisco Giants?

The Giants currently hold first place in the NL West by six games. And while they’ve been on a role thanks to their stacked bullpen, injuries are starting to weigh in on the clubhouse.

Giants Get Ruthlessly Dingered Upon, Shrug, Win Anyway

Stick with this show. I know it starts rough, but they're doing some really cool stuff in the later episodes. The first thing to note is that the Giants are a very good team right now. They’ve won ten of their last twelve games, putting them one back of the Chicago Borg in the win column. They’ve done it with dominant starting pitching, and when the pitching hasn’t shown up...

San Francisco Giants trade rumors: Ryan Braun edition

There have been many trade rumors swirling around Ryan Braun in the last few weeks.  The Brewers are already nine games under .500 this season and many believe the team will enter full rebuilding-mode soon.  Brewers owner Mark Attanasio and general manager David Stearns appear to be willing to enter the rebuilding process, rather than try to hold onto a little dignity by winning...

Brandon Belt rips himself on Twitter after striking out to catcher (vid)

The Pittsburgh Pirates found themselves on the receiving end of a savage blowout, losing to the San Francisco Giants by a score of 15-4. But the savagery that occurred afterward in the social media musings of Giants first baseman Brandon Belt at his own expense may have been much more severe. The Pirates were left throwing out backup catcher Erik Katz to pitch the ninth inning...

Another DL-Trip for first-place San Francisco Giants

The skid of the Giants’ eight-game winning streak had company. Steak-ending company, at that. Third baseman Matt Duffy, who held the MLB-highest consecutive game appearances (188), did not appear in the lineup for Monday’s loss and has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left Achilles. The fall to injury — a season constant, thus far. Yet, the Giants...

San Francisco Giants: Why you Don’t bet on Baseball

Advance your wager at your own risk. If there is a such thing as momentum between games, the Giants certainly had it heading into Monday’s showdown with the Pirates at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. The Giants stormed into town on a red-hot terror. The club had captured 27 wins over a 35 game stretch. The organization hadn’t seen a tally resemblance like such since Willie Mays led...

WATCH: Angel Pagan almost robs home run, spikes glove in anger

Robbing a home run may be the only cooler individual play in baseball than hitting a home run. So when you think you have achieved that amazing feeling of robbing a home run, but drop the ball? That has to be infuriating. And that’s what happened with San Francisco Giants veteran outfielder Angel Pagan on Monday night in Pittsburgh. Pagan did everything right to rob a home run...

Giants looking like threats for another even-year run

Overshadowed again in a loaded National League, the San Francisco Giants have taken control of their division with a run that feels awfully familiar.

Giants pitcher Johnny Cueto pulled off a rare unassisted pickoff

San Francisco Giants starter Johnny Cueto is unlike most pitchers in the fact that his windup is intentionally inconsistent. Sometimes he pauses at the top, and other times he doesn't stop at all and quick-pitches hitters into strikeouts. He did just that on Wednesday, striking out Hernan Perez.With his unconventional windup also comes an unpredictable pickoff move. Cueto didn't...

The San Francisco Giants and Inevitability

2016 is an even year. Since 2010 that’s meant one thing in Major League Baseball: good times for the San Francisco Giants. 2010, 2012, 2014 all concluded with a World Series parade. Despite the Dodgers new ownership sweeping into power in 2012, the NL West has remained the Giants’ playground. After taking a three-game series from the Dodgers over the weekend the Giants stand...

Report: Ryan Braun on the Giants’ radar

The San Francisco Giants head into their three-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers this week with a 38-26 record in a comfy five-game lead in the National League West. They do so having lost outfielder Hunter Pence for a substantial amount of time due to a hamstring injury (more on that here). Even before Pence went down with injury, the team was rumored to be in the market...

How can the Giants replace Hunter Pence?

When Hunter Pence pulled up lame while running out a grounder last week, the Giants’ hopes of making another deep October run took a major blow. Pence is the catalyst of the offense, someone who makes the hitters around him better, and the entire lineup suffers when he’s not in it. So when word came down that he’d torn his hamstring from the bone and would need at least two...
