Kyle Harrison vs. Cristopher Sánchez

The San Francisco Giants wrap up this series against the Philadelphia Phillies this afternoon at Oracle Park. And on a personal note, I’m extremely grateful to not have to struggle to spell Philadelphia any more times this season.

Taking the mound for the Giants will be left-hander Kyle Harrison, who enters today’s game with a 3.90 ERA, 4.11 FIP, with 55 strikeouts to 21 walks in 60 innings...

Blake Snell’s lost season

Photo by Joe Sargent/Getty Images

Oh no, his life is totally fine. The optics on his career, though? Less than.

The San Francisco Giants waited out Blake Snell and his agent Scott Boras until the cost to sign the 2023 NL Cy Young avoided a Barry Zito/Johnny Cueto situation where they paid a pitcher a lot of money for a long time and mainly got the pitcher’s decline. Snell and Boras took as a consolation prize a high AAV, with the downside risk of Snell getting off to a slow or bad...

Wednesday BP: Bruce Bochy adds another championship to his list of achievements

It’s Wednesday morning, and you deserve a fun story.

Good morning, baseball fans!

I’ve got a silly one for you today, so enjoy. Former San Francisco Giants manager has a lot of achievements under his belt. Not only was he the skipper for all three of the Giants’ World Series Championships between 2010-2014, he lead the Texas Rangers to their first World Series Championship ever in his first year back from “retirement” last season....

Bullpen > ace

Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

13 years later, a blockbuster trade is explained.

Forget the teams. Forget the records. Forget the narratives. This wasn’t supposed to be a fair fight. It had nothing to do with the San Francisco Giants. It had nothing to do with the Philadelphia Phillies. Styles make fights, and sometimes fights aren’t fair.

This wasn’t the team in red vs. the team in orange. It wasn’t the Giants vs. the Phillies. It wasn’t the powerhouse vs. the team trying to...

The San Francisco Giants continue this series against the Philadelphia Phillies tonight at Oracle Park.

Make sure you take a look at Bryan’s updated on the roster moves so you’ve got an idea of who is currently on the team before tonight’s game.

LaMonte Wade Jr.’s hamstring injury leads to heavy back of the roster churn

There’s a “Hey, It’s That Guy!” and a “Who?” along with a “Him?” as the Giants reshuffle their position player deck.

I step away from the computer for an hour and all heck breaks loose... at least at the back of the roster. This afternoon, the San Francisco Giants announced a series of roster moves to address yesterday’s unfortunate hamstring injury sustained by LaMonte Wade Jr. along with their pitching’s unfortunate......

Yesterday’s action on the farm.

Apologies for the sporadic Minor League Baseball updates lately, but I’ve been traveling a bit and it’s thrown off my schedule. But the San Francisco Giants had two of their affiliates in action on Monday, so we might as well talk about them!

The latest Giants news.

Rejoice, San Francisco Giants fans. For yesterday was a glorious, glorious day. Not only did the Giants beat the Philadelphia Phillies 8-4, but Ángel Hernández retired. Could you imagine anything better?

It wasn’t all peaches and roses though, as first baseman LaMonte Wade Jr., left Monday’s game after injuring his hamstring on a double. The Giants announced that Wade has a hamstring strain and will have an MRI today, but...

Sizzling Giants likely without LaMonte Wade Jr. against Phillies

The San Francisco Giants hope a strained hamstring suffered by hot-hitting LaMonte Wade Jr. doesn't stall their offensive momentum as they continue a three-game series against the visiting Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night.

Bottom of order helps Giants top Phillies

Mike Yastrzemski, Heliot Ramos and Brett Wisely -- the bottom three batters in the order -- combined for five hits and six RBIs Monday afternoon and the San Francisco Giants took advantage of some shoddy defense on the part of the visiting Philadelphia Phillies for an 8-4 victory in the opener of a three-game series.

Blake Snell vs. Taijuan Walker.

Hey, the San Francisco Giants are hosting the Philadelphia Phillies! I forgot to put up a gamethread, but better late than never, right?

Anyway, it’s Blake Snell vs. Taijuan Walker. You probably already know that because the game started half an hour ago. Enjoy. Go Giants. They’re winning right now. Don’t blow it, dorks. You’ve been warned.

Adios, pelota!

Giants-Phillies Series Preview

The Giants come home after a fun road trip, but they’ll be facing a team that’s better than them in practically every way. Does the fun ride end here?

These two teams met at the beginning of the month and so what’s a bit of elegance, the San Francisco Giants will get to face off against a team that’s clearly better than them and have the chance to gauge just how much better they’ve become over the past few weeks.

Ever since...

Monday BP: The Giants pitching plans are up in the air

Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/Getty Images

Who will pitch? No one knows.

The schedule-makers did the San Francisco Giants no favors this week, as the team returned from a six-game East Coast road trip on Sunday, and not only doesn’t get Monday off, but has to play a day game. Just for good measure, that game is against the Philadelphia Phillies, arguably baseball’s best team ... and a squad that already swept the Giants in a four-game set this season.

Close watchers of both the games and...

I guess the last thing the Giants want is a lead in the 9th.

The San Francisco Giants road trip ended as it began—with a blown lead in the 9th and a blown gem by their ace Logan Webb.

Like stuffing slices of tender and juicy and rare smoked tri-tip between two frozen Eggo waffles—it could’ve been a helluva of a sandwich.

Yup, a 6-0 road trip was well within San Francisco’s reach, but they botched the bread.

The New York Mets appeared pinned, down...

Logan Webb vs. Sean Manaea

The San Francisco Giants wrap up this series against the New York Mets this morning at Citi Field.

Taking the mound for the Giants will be right-hander Logan Webb, who enters today’s game with a 3.03 ERA, 2.83 FIP, with 53 strikeouts to 18 walks in 65.1 innings pitched. His last start was in the Giants’ 7-6 upset loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday, in which he allowed two runs on six hits with six strikeouts and a...
