San Francisco Giants Yusmeiro Petit sets amazing record

Baseball is a statistical sport, for which “streaks” are widely monitored and acclaimed.  From Joe DiMaggio‘s 56 game hitting streak, to Cal Ripken‘s 2632 games played to Orel Hershiser‘s 59 consecutive scoreless innings to Johnny Vander Meers consecutive no-hitters.  The San Francisco Giants pitcher Yusmeiro Petit can etch his name among those baseball legends now by...

Record-Making Weirdness

Yusmeiro Petit now owns a pretty solid Major League Baseball record. Yusmeiro Petit. One day, I’ll tell my kid I saw Yusmeiro Petit pitch.  She’ll say “Who?”  I’ll tell a guy in my fantasy football league in New York in three days that I saw Yusmeiro Petit pitch, and he’ll say the same thing. He has a career 4.84 ERA.  This year, at 29, is his first spending a full...

Greg Amsinger called Buster Posey’s walk off homer

During the end of the Rockies-Giants game, MLB Tonight anchor Greg Amsinger said that he “got that feeling in my bad knee” about Buster Posey, inferring that he’d hit a walk off. As Juan Nicasio began his delivery to the plate, Amsinger then predicted we’d be hearing a Duane Kuiper home run call. Sure enough… That is pretty awesome, and the in studio reaction of Amsinger...

A Good Reason To Watch Yusmeiro Petit Pitch

The Giants can take no more. Well into Tim Lincecum‘s third straight year of mediocrity — since the start of 2012, he’s got a 134 ERA- and 114 FIP- – and most of the way through the first year of his 2/$35m extension signed last winter, San Francisco will skip him in the rotation and instead […]

Tim Lincecum: Now a Reliever, Maybe Needs to Close

Tim Lincecum is headed to the bullpen. After a miserable start to the second half — opposing batters are hitting .331/.422/.622 against him since the All-Star break — the Giants have finally removed him from the rotation and will experiment with Lincecum as a relief pitcher. Of course, Lincecum famously dominated out of the pen […]

San Francisco Giants: Buster Posey’s future

Amidst the uncertainty and disappointment of the San Francisco Giants’ 2014 season, one narrative remains consistent: Buster Posey may not, and possibly should not, finish out his career behind the plate.

San Francisco Giants: Whiff on another Cuban Star

The San Francisco Giants missed out on another Cuban sensation as they decided not to take a risk on Cuban star Rusney Castillo. The Giants need a player like Castillo and had an opportunity to land him, but failed. Will they regret it or do they know what they are doing? The 7 year 72.5 million dollar contract that Castillo received is not outrageous. It’s in line with the money...
