Giants walk off the Mets for the third time in four days

Mike Yastrzemski. That’s it. That’s the entire article. Yastrzemski - who made his MLB debut less than two months ago, and was nearly optioned just a few weeks ago - came up to bat in the bottom of the 12th inning,...

Giants vs. Mets, 7/21

Regrettably, I must jinx the Giants again by not typing out the lineups. A question this game could answer: how similar are Conner Menez and Steven Matz? Beyond being left-handed pitchers, they’re both 92-93 with their fastballs, and throw...

Derek Holland and Ryder Jones designated for assignment

Well, I was wrong. I went ahead and guessed that the two players the Giants would designate for assignment today would be players who have recently performed poorly at the major-league level (Tyler Austin & Ty Blach). Actually, it’s almost...

Sunday BP, 7/21/19

Good morning, McCoven! You’ve all heard the commercials a million times on KNBR. “Wells Fargo and Brandon Crawford are teaming up to step up to the plate for education!” or something to that effect. Anyway, it’s a pretty great cause....

Giants clearing a path for two rookies

Earlier today, Henry Schulman reported that the Giants planned to move Drew Pomeranz to the bullpen and replace him in the rotation with Connor Menez. A little over an hour ago, he followed up that report saying that infielder...

Mike Leake came within three outs of perfection

On Friday night, Mike Leake stood a soft grounder away from history. The Mariners starter and #ForeverGiant pitched eight perfect innings against the Los Angeles Angels, and he just needed to work through Luís Rengifo, Kevan Smith, and Matt...

Giants finally lose

Any thought of a comeback was squahsed in the bottom of the sixth inning when Buster Posey grounded out softly to second base to end a two on, two out threat. The rest of the game was watching a...

Giants vs. Mets, 7/20

I’m an occasionally superstitious baseball fan, so it brings me no pleasure to report that I’ve jinxed the Giants today. I am not able to get to a computer to post these lineups properly. By that I mean, I...

Donate to the Junior Giants

Hey you! Do you love baseball? Do you want to make a difference in a kid’s life? Do you have disposable income? Then consider donating to the Junior Giants Stretch Drive! A couple of weeks back, in an article that...

Saturday BP, 7/20/19

Good morning, McCoven! The Giants Community Fund’s annual Junior Giants Stretch Drive is going on now! The Community Fund raises money to help with health, education and violence prevention as well, and you may have seen the 50/50 raffle they...

SF Giants Minor Lines 7/19/19: Luis Matos won’t stop

There was so much going on in yesterday’s edition I had to scratch this little gem, but with a slightly calmer, more sedate Minor Lines today, allow me to present in all its glory, the no-ball-put-in-play triple play: And with...

Beede out-duels deGrom as Giants walk it off again, winning 1-0 over Mets

The Giants beat the Mets Friday night, 1-0, in another extra innings pitching duel. This time, between Tyler Beede and Jacob deGrom, who made Thursday night’s 16-inning standoff look like a high scoring affair. The game ended because of...

Giants vs. Mets, 7/19

Hi, I know you never read these and you just want to go down to the comments, but before you do, let me tell you about ESPN+, the new streaming service from ESPN*. Tonight’s Giants-Mets game will be streamed on...

Checking in on the guys the Giants let go

The Giants are doing well right now, but what if they could be doing ... better? From the beginning of February through around mid-May, the roster churn was excruciating. Guys got DFA’d, guys got picked up off waivers, guys who...

The Giants are hot, but who’s hottest?

There are a lot of arbitrary end points you can choose when isolating the San Francisco Giants current stretch of good baseball. You can go for the large sample route, and point out that the team is above .500...

Giants rally in the sixteenth inning to beat the Mets, 3-2

If every win went down like this, we’d probably like baseball a lot less. But every once and a while? When it extends a winning streak? Sure. Let’s do it. Turn that baseball knob to 11. Let’s blow it...

Giants vs. Mets, 7/18

The Giants made some roster move ahead of today’s game. Let’s break them down: ROSTER MOVES: • LHP Andrew Suarez optioned to AAA Sacramento.• LHP Williams Jerez recalled from AAA Sacramento. • RHP Jandel Gustave added to the 40 man roster...

Series Preview: The Mets haven’t lost a series in San Francisco since 2014

I know, I’m shocked, too. The Giants swept them in San Francisco in 2014, but since then, the Mets have gone 9-4 in San Francisco. Stretch it back to 2009, and the Mets are 20-14 in whatever the Giants...

Donovan Solano demands your attention

I used to work at this mediocre California restaurant in Chicago. Turnover in food and bev is already pretty high, but this was an especially lousy place to work, so people came and went before you could even learn...

Thursday BP, 7/18/19

Good morning, McCoven! Continuing on our theme this week of talking about the Giants suddenly being good, speculating on whether they can sustain that, and some people having cautious optimism about a Wild Card chase (or having thrown caution to...

SF Giants Minor Lines 7/17/19: Hunter Bishop blasts off

So.... this happened HIGHLIGHTS: Bryce Johnson reached base for 18th straight game; Heliot Ramos reached base 5x; Hunter Bishop homered in SK debut; Marco Luciano doubled, tripled; Luis Matos had four hits, two doubles. Sacramento won at Salt Lake Bees (Angels),...
