2021 Player Review: Scott Kazmir

Kazmir’s return to the Majors was brief and uneven and probably inconsequential for the Giants 2021 season.

The Scott Kazmir San Francisco Giants Experience in 2021 was, as far as an “experience” goes, a little all over the place.

On the one hand, it’s undeniably a feel-good story: A 37 year old journeyman, three time All Star, one time World Series starter, signing a minor league deal after going AWOL for five seasons, before getting...

Giants Close To Adding Another Key Rotation Piece In Alex Cobb

The San Francisco Giants are having a fantastic offseason. The team entered free agency with a tall mountain to climb. Four of the club’s five starting pitchers from the 2021 campaign began the offseason as free agents.

Rockies interested in Kris Bryant

It remains to be seen whether the Rockies will actually engage in a serious pursuit of Bryant or are merely hoping to serve as an opportunistic landing spot in the event his market doesn’t crystallize as hoped.

The right-handed reliever will return for $837,500.

The San Francisco Giants have re-signed their first arbitration-eligible player of the offseason, agreeing to an $837,500 contract with right-handed relief pitcher John Brebbia. The deadline for non-tendering arbitration-eligible players is today at 5:00 p.m. PT, so the Giants had to either offer Brebbia a contract or non-tender him.

Jay Jackson is probably better than you think

But now he’s gone.

Next up on the list of San Francisco Giants season reviews is right-handed reliever Jay Jackson.

2021 review

23 games, 21.2 innings, 3.74 ERA, 4.05 FIP, 1.246 WHIP, 28 strikeouts, 12 walks, 0.2 rWAR, 0.1 fWAR

I’ll always remember Jay Jackson’s brief Giants tenure for three things:

First, he was the epitome of a Farhan Zaidi move. The Giants signed him as a Minor League free agent, seeing some upside. They...

The deal has yet to be confirmed by the team, but reports indicate that it is pending a physical

Good morning, baseball fans!

I know things have seemed like they are slow going for the San Francisco Giants in this week’s frenzy of free agent signings before the likely lockout tomorrow. The Giants have lost, not gained, top tier pitching talent, with Kevin Gausman’s decision to sign with the Toronto Blue Jays.

That said, there is progress. Even...

Alex Cobb, Giants finalizing agreement

There’d be room for further additions to the Giants' rotation even if Cobb’s deal does get across the finish line, and there should be plenty of spending capacity with which to do so.

Take comfort, the Dodgers are moving backwards

With Corey Seager and Max Scherzer gone, the Dodgers don’t look quite as intimidating at the moment.

All things considered, this is a relatively optimistic San Francisco Giants article, so let me kick it off with a healthy dose of bad news: the Los Angeles Dodgers will be very good in 2022. They might even be great.

I say this because the Dodgers are a very good organization with very good players and a crew of people who make very good baseball...

Everything Giants fans need to know about MLB’s labor negotiations

MLB’s CBA expires on Wednesday. Then what?

The San Francisco Giants mesmerizing 107-win season is firmly in the rear view mirror, and a good chunk of their offseason happenings — both good and bad — are as well. Which means it’s time to shift our attention to the thing I’ve been trying to avoid giving attention to for the last ... uhh ... roughly year or so.

I can wait no more.

With MLB’s collective bargaining agreement...

Monday BP: Kevin Gausman to sign with the Blue Jays

Gausman is reportedly signing a five-year deal with Toronto.

Good morning, baseball fans! I hope you had an excellent holiday weekend.

It was rumored over the weekend that Kevin Gausman was likely to make a decision on where he wants to play next. The rumors indicated that the decision would come over the weekend but that didn’t happen (unless it happens after I write this, it’s currently 5:15pm Sunday night).

Welp. Kevin Gausman is...

Blue Jays giving righty Kevin Gausman five-year, $110M deal

The signing represents the end of a rather lengthy courtship, as the Blue Jays’ interest in Gausman dates back to at least the 2019-20 offseason.

The Mets have already significantly bolstered their offense. Maybe that will help them attract top-tier pitchers such as Scherzer.
