MLB Wins Barry Bonds Collusion Case

In 2007, Barry Bonds earned $19.3 million, led the league with an OBP of .480, and hit, by his Olympian standards, a meager 28 home runs. The San Francisco Giants did not offer him a contract the next season, which was understandable given the amount of very public shit Bonds and the team has gone through.

Madison Bumgarner Cannot Stop Hitting Home Runs

Last night Madison Bumgarner won his 15th game, good for a tie with Jake Arrieta atop the National League. Perhaps more impressively, he took Jeff Locke deep in the second inning.

We Hopped A Fence And Explored The Ruins Of Candlestick Park

On Saturday, Ryan and a friend sneaked into San Francisco’s Candlestick Park home of the Giants from 1960-1999 and the 49ers from 1971-2013. Demolition began in November of last year, but after opposition from local residents to an implosion, crews began to tear it down manually.

Chris Heston Throws Unconventional No-Hitter

Giants pitcher Chris Heston, in only the 13th start of his career, threw a no-hitter against the Mets at Citi Field tonight. If you look at the box score, you’ll notice he didn’t walk any batters, so why wasn’t it a perfect game? Because he hit three batters: two in a row in the 4th and one to lead off the 9th.… » 6/09/15 10:20pm 6/09/15 10:20pm
