Giants Manager Bruce Bochy And His Son Made MLB History

The San Francisco Giants had one bright spot as the Dodgers drubbed them 17-0 last night. Manager Bruce Bochy and pitcher Brett Bochy became a fun piece of trivia after a pitching change in the sixth inning. Brett's major-league debut marked the first time in MLB history that a manager called for his son in relief. » 9/14/14 12:00pm 9/14/14 12:00pm

Confused Giants Fans Scramble For Invisible Foul Ball

The main thing that an adult needs to remember when attending a baseball game is this: it is of the utmost importance to play it cool if and when a foul ball happens to land nearby. Do not fight with another fan while trying to pull the ball out of a trash can, do not snatch the ball from a child, and do not… » 9/11/14 11:19am 9/11/14 11:19am

MLB Network Host Predicts Buster Posey Walk-Off Home Run, Flips Out

This shit is straight up paranormal. Greg Amsinger, hosting a live look-in to Wednesday's Giants-Rockies game for MLB Network, eerily predicted Buster Posey's walk-off home run. It started with an innocuous feeling in his "bad knee." But the real wizardry begins right before Amsinger hands off the broadcast to the… » 8/28/14 4:56pm 8/28/14 4:56pm

Madison Bumgarner And His Fastball Are Unstoppable

Last night, Madison Bumgarner was about as perfect as one can be without actually pitching a perfect game. In nine innings against the suck-ass Rockies, Bumgarner allowed one hit and struck out 13 batters while throwing just 103 pitches. And he did it by adhering to a very simple formula: Throw a lot of strikes, and… » 8/27/14 12:39pm 8/27/14 12:39pm

What Baseball's Most Famous Brawl Photo Didn't Show You

It's been 49 years since Giants ace Juan Marichal clocked Dodgers catcher John Roseboro with his bat. The moment was captured in Neil Leifer's iconic photograph, which in turn shaped the collective memory of the incident.

Giants Protest Rain-Shortened Loss, Win First Appeal In MLB Since 1986

This is neat. Thanks to the tarp shenanigans at Wrigley Field Tuesday night, the Giants-Cubs game was called after a four-hour and 34-minute delay. With four-and-a-half innings in the books and the field an unplayable mess, crew chief Hunter Wendelstedt called the game, and awarded the Cubs a 2-0 win. The Giants, in… » 8/20/14 10:23pm 8/20/14 10:23pm

Home Run Explodes In Woman's Beer Cup

At least three people tried to catch this home run—although "tried" might be a stretch for the guy in orange—and it eluded all of them. With all the hands in front of her face, this poor woman made no attempt whatsoever to catch the ball, and probably assumed at least one of the dudes around her was going to snag it.… » 7/30/14 11:11pm 7/30/14 11:11pm

Madison Bumgarner Can Dominate Without You Even Noticing

Last night's game between the Giants and Phillies was interrupted by a rain delay in the 4th inning that lasted nearly an hour. Under normal circumstances, this would have been a good time to just abandon watching the game altogether, but Madison Bumgarner was on the mound for the Giants, and that made sticking out… » 7/24/14 5:16pm 7/24/14 5:16pm

Dan Uggla Refuses To Go Quietly, Signs Minor League Deal With Giants

Dan Uggla's back, baby! Four days after being released by the Atlanta Braves, and just more than a week after being suspended (reportedly for showing up to a game at Wrigley Field just an hour before first pitch), Uggla is getting a minor league deal with the Giants, a well-known corpse repository/baseball team in San… » 7/21/14 5:35pm 7/21/14 5:35pm
