Pat Burrell's Still Got It

Baseball has been a much more boring sport ever since Pat "The Machine" Burrell decided to hang up the spikes. But Burrell hasn't left us completely behind. Now a scout with the Giants, Burrell showed up at yesterday's game to take a few hacks in BP. Wearing slacks and a pair of Vans, the ol' slugger launched one right… » 4/03/14 9:53am 4/03/14 9:53am

Damon Bruce Was Banned From The Giants' Clubhouse For Taking Creepshots

We haven't heard much from former KNBR radio host Damon Bruce since he went on a dick-twirling rant during one of his shows. But Bruce's recent move from KNBR to 95.7 The Game elicited a column from the Press Democrat's Lowell Cohn, in which he dishes some serious dirt on Bruce. » 3/14/14 2:21pm 3/14/14 2:21pm

Barry Bonds Says He Should Be In The Hall Of Fame "Without A Doubt"

Barry Bonds showed up at camp today, and put on a Giants uniform for the first time in seven years. At age 49, he looked good—smaller than in his playing days, but nothing that would be embarrassing if he were in spring training to play. He's here to teach. And he was immediately asked about PEDs. » 3/10/14 4:45pm 3/10/14 4:45pm

Can Batkid Run The Bases Faster Than Pablo Sandoval?

Part of the San Francisco Batkid's reward for saving Giants mascot Lou Seal was a chance to run the bases at AT&T Park.

Eckersley And Canseco Nearly Fought After The World Series Earthquake

» 10/23/13 11:28am 10/23/13 11:28am

Grantland has a fantastic and extensive oral history of 1989's earthquake-interrupted World Series, which includes memories from players, fans, politicians, and reporters. But the single most terrifying anecdote comes from a poor stadium worker who had just climbed a ladder up to Candlestick Park's light towers when… » 10/23/13 11:28am 10/23/13 11:28am

What Are The Giants Doing Giving Tim Lincecum $35 Million?

He's 29 now, and the long hair is gone along with the velocity. A fastball that once kissed 95 now struggles to clear 90 mph. The ace of the staff for one championship run, he saw himself bumped to long relief for the next—and excelled. He's said he's willing to go to the bullpen if that's where the Giants want him. Is … » 10/23/13 10:17am 10/23/13 10:17am

Kanye West Rented Out AT&T Park To Propose To Kim Kardashian

As far as I know, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are not San Francisco Giants fans, nor do they have any meaningful ties to AT&T or the city of San Francisco. And yet, Kanye decided to rent out the Giants' stadium in order to propose to Kim. A live orchestra was involved, and the jumbotron read "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!"… » 10/22/13 10:20am 10/22/13 10:20am

Brian Wilson Yells At Giants President About His World Series Ring

As the Giants lined up for handshakes following last night's win over Los Angeles, former SF-closer-turned-Dodger Brian Wilson angrily confronted Giants president and CEO Larry Baer along the third-base line. Wilson was apparently pissed that the Giants hadn't get given him his 2012 World Series ring. » 9/27/13 1:47pm 9/27/13 1:47pm
