Bullpen, bats bail out Rodón

Giants win 6-5 over Arizona to extend winning streak to 5

As the old saying goes: “I’d rather be dead in California than alive in Arizona” whether that rings true for you or not, I think Carlos Rodón vibes with that sentiment as of late.

Weekend BP: Barry Bonds wants Aaron Judge to break his record (and sign with the Giants)

As the reigning home run king, Bonds knows a thing or two about chasing legends. And he’d like to watch Judge continue to do so at Oracle Park in 2023 and beyond.

Good morning, baseball fans!

Aaron Judge is the talk of baseball right now, as well he should be. The New York Yankees outfielder is chasing legends with every swing of the bat and you’d have to be asleep or hate fun to be a baseball fan who isn’t loving and following every minute of...

Carlos Rodón vs. Tommy Henry

The San Francisco Giants kick off a three-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks today at Chase Field.

Taking the mound for the Giants will be left-hander Carlos Rodón, who enters today’s game with a 2.84 ERA, 2.27 FIP, with 220 strikeouts to 49 walks in 167.2 innings pitched. His last start was in the Giants’ 4-1 win over the Atlanta Braves last Wednesday, in which he allowed one unearned run on two hits...

What to root for over the final 12 games

Individual performances, mainly.

The San Francisco Giants are 73-77, leaving just 12 games for the team to do two of the following things which I deem important:

Get to 75 wins Get to 81-81

81-81 is an extreme longshot, but 75 wins is well within reach. We might even see it happen this weekend, even though the Giants are 34-41 on the road this year and 5-8 against Arizona (1-5 in Arizona, where they begin a three-game series tonight).

But 75 wins...

Everything Brandon Crawford needs to have a successful 2023

Sure, history is no friend, but that doesn’t mean he can’t have a good and fun (potentially) final season as a Giant.

When I pitched Brady my initial set of ideas just to see if I could still blog about the San Francisco Giants — I had really, truly stopped writing since leaving this site — I had one on the list about Brandon Crawford’s career tail and what would presumably be his farewell season in 2023.

Barry Bonds wants Aaron Judge to break his record, sign with Giants

The other major subplot to Judge's season is that he remains unsigned beyond this season and will be the most sought-after free agent on the market if the Yankees are unable to re-sign him before the winter.

Giants look for fifth straight win in tilt vs D-backs

Mike Yastrzemski is well aware that he is winding down on an underachieving season. But the San Francisco outfielder is intent on finishing the season strong and looks to make an impact when the visiting Giants play the Arizona Diamondbacks in the opener of a three-game series on Friday night at Phoenix.

Friday BP: Former Giant Stephen Vogt announces he will retire after 2022 season

Photo by G Fiume/Getty Images

Vogt, briefly a Giant in 2019, announced yesterday that he will retire after a ten-year career.

Good morning, baseball fans.

Although he had a brief, if memorable, stint with the San Francisco Giants, Stephen Vogt has spent the majority of his career with the Oakland Athletics, where he has been beloved by fans from both sides of the bay.

On Thursday, Vogt announced that the 2022 season, his tenth in the majors, will also be his last.

Gonna be thinking about that play for awhile

I was this kid all afternoon: heavily reclined in my chair, a bag of tortilla chips on my lap with one eye on the game and the other perusing Martin Sheen’s Wikipedia page.

It’s not the most exciting place to be—it’s not bite-through-your-cuticles-and-pull-your-hair-out-while-walking-on-coals excited/anxious baseball every night like it was back in ‘21— but there’s a certain level of peace bordering on...

Giants call up Shelby Miller

More churn! More veterans!

In a shocking twist, the San Francisco Giants have made — gasp! — yet another move! Prior to their series finale against the Colorado Rockies on Thursday, the team announced that they had purchased the contract of AAA right-handed reliever Shelby Miller. To make room on the roster for Miller, right-handed reliever Cole Waites was optioned.
