GIANTS RUMORS & GOSSIP

San Francisco Giants’ Bullpen Injured Again

The acquisition of right hander Matt Moore couldn’t have come at a better time. Even though Moore struggled from his transition into the National League, he proved through 8.2 solid innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers that he’s made of good stuff. Moore plus lefty Madison Bumgarner and righty Johnny Cueto make for a deadly start to the Giants’ bullpen. But the rest of the...

The mini-roll stops cold with a lineup missing three key pieces

Not much to say about this one other than "yuck." Here's the final write. -   The Giants’ first three-game winning streak since early July will have to wait awhile longer. They’re still not up to it. With a severely depleted lineup and a substitute starter on the mound, the Giants were subdued 3-1 at AT&T Park Saturday night by an unheralded young righthander named Mike...

San Francisco Giants inching closer to a record they really don’t want

Entering the All-Star break, the San Francisco Giants had the best record in baseball at 57-33. Since the All-Star break, they rest comfortably in the Major League Baseball cellar with a record of 12-25.

Pence not in lineup vs. Braves, Nunez takes a seat

When Hunter Pence left the game Thursday night in Los Angeles with hamstring tightness, his absence from the lineup vs. Atlanta surely was in doubt. What awaits is to determine how severe the injury is, or whether this is just a precautionary day off. Tonight's lineup vs. Braves righthander Joel De La Cruz (0-6, 4.47): CF Span, LF Pagan, C Posey, SS Crawford, 1B Belt, 2B Panik, 3B...

Dodgers fan toasts Matt Moore losing no-hit bid with dual middle fingers (vid)

San Francisco Giants: Breaking out of the breakdown

The San Francisco Giants have been the worst team since the All-Star break. That’s not just me being cynical again, the numbers back it up.

Bumgarner gives up grand slam, hits HR in same inning

Madison Bumgarner without question is one of better slugging pitchers in Major League Baseball in recent history, if not the very best. The San Francisco Giants ace’s prowess at the plate was on full display during Thursday’s 10-7 win over the New York Mets, although it probably didn’t play out they way Bumgarner would have scripted it. Bumgarner was in the midst of a rough...

San Francisco Giants: A too early look at free agency

The San Francisco Giants need help, or a jolt of confidence.  The second-half of the 2016 season has been down right awful for the Giants, and if they want to get out of it, they need to win and they need to win now. Their acquisitions of pitchers Will Smith and Matt Moore have been average at best, and if they want go into the 2017 season better, they need to look at whose available...
