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...

Giants lose, slip back into second place

The Giants could have won the series, but they, well, didn't. Blame Noah Syndergaard. In the last two or three weeks, the spambots have been going bonkers on Twitter. It’s hard to explain if you’re not on there, but these random computerized accounts are digging up tweets from months and years ago and liking them. I don’t know the algorithm. I don’t know the point. All I...

Giants lose to Mets, 9-5

They most likely stayed in first place, though. Just pretend that the Giants and Dodgers both won, and somehow that feels better? SAN FRANCISCO — The sun was oppressive, the lemonade was expensive, and the Giants were poopy on this late summer day, with the Mets and Yoenis Cespedes clubbing their way to a 9-5 win. This was a game of simple hopes and honest queries. "Can I have...

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...

San Francisco Giants Swept Out of First

The San Francisco Giants are snakebit. They can’t seem to put together nine innings of quality baseball and are being beaten with regularity as a result. Wednesday’s 6-5 loss to the Pirates marked their fourth straight loss at home, their second straight dropped series at home and their eighth series loss of the second half. “We’re taking some blows right now, but it’s...

San Francisco Giants Fall out of First Place

Baseball is a strange game. It is a sport needled by statistics and statistical analysis, yet it is often talked about in terms of feeling momentum, sometimes even particles. Right now, the San Francisco Giants can’t find momentum and the particles aren’t on their side. Tuesday night’s 4-3 loss to the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates was the Giants third straight loss at home, and...

What to make of the struggling San Francisco Giants?

You’ll forgive San Francisco Giants fans if they checked their calendars in mid-July to make sure that it really wasn’t New Year’s Eve and it had suddenly become an odd year. That might be the only reasonable explanation for what’s happened to the team since then. The Giants have been beaten up in the second half, posting an 8-16 record while watching their once-formidable...

Barry Bonds got ejected in a game against the Giants

San Francisco Giants legend and current Miami Marlins hitting coach Barry Bonds was ejected from Wednesday afternoon’s Giants-Marlins game at Marlins Park for arguing about the strike zone. I’m curious if this is Bonds’ first ejection as a coach — I’m assuming it is, considering it’s his first year as a coach in the majors. Also, this is probably the first time Bonds...

Buster Posey slides face-first into base (VIDEO)

San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey laid it all on the line for his team on Monday night, but he may be paying for it in the future. The team’s game against the Marlins was tied 7-7 in the eleventh inning, and Posey was so determined to get to third base after a Brandon Crawford single that he slid toward it head-first. Unfortunately, his face hit the base first, and then...

Hunter Pence shows off black eye from foul ball

It is safe to say Hunter Pence is a gamer. If you need further evidence of that, his response to taking a foul ball off the face should convince you. In Saturday’s game against the Washington Nationals, the Giants outfielder fouled off a pitch that bounced up and hit him just below the right eye. In fact, he got drilled so hard you could immediately see the seams of the baseball...
