SF Giants Minor Lines 7/23/17: CJ Hinojosa collects four more hits

Thereby outhitting entire other teams.

The first five hitters in the Sacramento lineup had 1 hit — combined. The RiverCats had one of the best offensive performances of the night. Don’t believe me? Salem-Keizer managed just four hits (though three runs). Augusta scored 1 run on 6 hits. San Jose was shutout and managed just one hit.

Ugh! Time to count up our stores:

It might be time to start investigating who had the worst cumulative organizational record in baseball history. Because...

Westward no: Giants fall to 17-27 in division

Among the jarring trends that have developed as the Giants lurch through the season is their struggle to compete against their National League West brethren, which continued with Sunday's 5-2 loss to the San Diego Padres.

Giants fall to Padres, 5-2

The Giants couldn’t hit Random Padres Guy, but, really, that’s understandable.

If you’re interested in analysis about the Giants/Padres series that just concluded, start with this: The Padres are bad. This is not a point of dispute with baseball observers or even Padres fans. They’re 12 games under .500. Their adjusted OPS is 83, well below the league average. Their adjusted ERA is 89, well below the league average. The Padres are bad.

The Giants are worse.

That’s the analysis....

The Prospect Round-Up, 7/23/17

A look at who could replace the guys who might get traded...and the Giants new free (but not free) prospect!

Making Trades Make Sense: Who Would Replace The Traded?

Here in trade season, with the Giants as sellers, a lot of names are getting tossed around. Some are those with contracts up this season (Eduardo Nunez, Johnny Cueto*), but others are advocating trading players who are signed for more years since they would be worth more.

Considering the Giants are trying to reload for 2018...

Giants... >win??

The Giants have won 5 of their last 22 games against the Padres.

I mean... holy crap. The Giants won that game. They’re not supposed to do that. They’re awful and bad and dumb and useless and pathetic and embarrassing and over the hill and talentless and past their primes and urinal troughs and the fifth season of The West Wing and unwatchable and bad and not major league-worthy and garbage and bad.

And yet, they won. They actually beat the San Diego Padres, a team that’s Wil Myers...

Giants walk off in 12th on Hundley's single

Starting in place of All-Star catcher Buster Posey certainly comes with expectations. Nick Hundley met those -- and then some -- when he looped a single to the left-field wall Saturday, giving the Giants a 5-4 walk-off win in 12 innings. Hundley's delivery was San Francisco's fifth walk-off win of the season and second of the week.

Giants lose, 12-9 in extra innings

The Giants have lost 16 of their last 21 games against the Padres.

The Padres tried to lose, I promise they did. Trevor Cahill was all over the place. The Giants — the Giants! — were hitting him hard. They were messing up in the field, futzing up simple rundowns. The Giants were up 4-0, and it felt like they should have been up 7-0. When they were up 6-2, it felt like they should have been up 9-2.

And when Conor Gillaspie tied the game, it felt like they should have walked off.

SF Giants trade rumors: Who would want Eduardo Nuñez?

Lots of teams, in theory. Let’s see if we can narrow them down.

Eduardo Nuñez is fast, and he can play a lot of positions. Some of them passably! He can hit for average and has gap power. Every team could use one of those players, whether on the bench of in the lineup.
