The Giants’ offseason might be over, but ...

Bobby Evans is hinting that the Giants are out of moves, but that doesn’t make it so. In almost any other winter, Giants fans would riot at the notion of a $62 million closer being the entire offseason. That’s it? A pitcher who throws an inning every other game? Seems a little light. Seems a little lazy. That’s because in any other winter, the question, “Oh, so the only...

You already saw the reports yesterday that the Giants...

Where does Eduardo Nunez fit in with the San Francisco Giants?

The San Francisco Giants made three big trades last season. Amid an injury bug issue for their incumbent third baseman (Matt Duffy), the Giants surprisingly traded for Minnesota Twins’ all-star Eduardo Nunez to fill the gap. Most Giants fans would have assumed that once Matt Duffy returned from injury, Nunez would turn into a super-utility player and perhaps end up in left field...
