It’s Coors Field time

That’s either the good news or the bad news.

The San Francisco Giants are headed to Coors Field, where baseballs see their dreams of sprouting wings come to fruition. It’s a magical place for hitters, a demonic place for pitchers, and equal parts mesmerizing and infuriating for fans.

You might be excited to see a road series against the Colorado Rockies. You might be horrified.

You might even be both, which is not only allowed but encouraged....

Chroncast #92 - Dubi’s gone away

The Giants made 16 transactions this week and one of them hurt a little. Also, who will the Giants select as their sponsorship patch for next season?

This week’s episode was recorded before the end of the San Francisco Giants drubbing by the St. Louis Cardinals, so there’s no talk of pitcher Luis González or pitcher Albert Pujols. BUT! Bryan and Doug do talk about Mauricio Dubón’s Giants tenure and the other trades the...

Monday BP: Weekend round-up

Not the best weekend, but it could always be worse.

Good morning, baseball fans.

I know, I know. This weekend’s series between the San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals kind of stinks for Giants fans. I feel you. I wasn’t able to watch much of it (I made the Ford Right Choice of the weekend by choosing to watch Eurovision instead on Saturday) but I did have the radio broadcast going yesterday, and despite the charming...

Carlos Rodón vs. TBD.

It’s series finale time, and the last time the San Francisco Giants have to face Paul Goldschmidt, Nolan Arenado, and the rest of the St. Louis Cardinals this season. Barring a postseason matchup, that is.

The Giants are sending their ace, lefty Carlos Rodón to the mound. Rodón has a 1.80 ERA and a 1.20 FIP, with 53 strikeouts to 12 walks in 35 innings. He leads the National League in strikeouts, FIP, strikeouts per...

San Francisco’s 6-game win streak snapped by Yadier Molina and the Missouri sunshine

The San Francisco Giants six-game winning streak came to an end with a 4-0 loss against the St. Louis Cardinals.

On a hot, bright, sweaty, sunscreen-in-the-eyes Missouri afternoon, starter Jakob Junis re-matched against Dakota Hudson. Junis put up similar numbers...

Giants trade Mauricio Dubón for catcher Michael Papierski

A popular Giant is heading out as the team deals with a roster crunch.

The San Francisco Giants traded a fan favorite on Saturday as they deal with an increasingly crunched roster. A few hours before their morning game against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Giants announced that they had traded utility player Mauricio Dubón to the Houston Astros in exchange for catcher and first baseman Michael Papierski.

Papierski, a 26-year old...

Jakob Junis vs. Dakota Hudson.

It’s time for the second game of a three-game series between the San Francisco Giants and the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Giants will try and build on an impressive victory in the series opener.

The Giants are sending right-handed pitcher Jakob Junis to the mound for his fourth appearance and second start of the year. Junis currently has a 1.20 ERA and a 2.79 FIP, with 15 strikeouts to three walks in 15...

Happy weekend, San Francisco Giants fans. The Giants enter the weekend on a six-game winning streak, so hopefully you’re happy.

It seemed like a good time to do a round up of some of the recent video content that the Giants have put out. First off, we’ve got another episode of Night Kap, Amy G’s weekly scotch-fueled hangout with manager Gabe Kapler, who is sporting some Golden State Warriors...

Giants play very good baseball, win sixth straight

Photo by Michael B. Thomas/Getty Images

Curt Casali homered, Logan Webb allowed one run in six innings, and the Giants won their sixth straight game.

The San Francisco Giants game against the St. Louis Cardinals got off to a funny start. The cliché is to call these things “ominous starts,” but when the Giants go on to win — as they did 8-2 — that doesn’t really seem like an apt descriptor.

Anyway, the normally punctual baseball powers that be (read: umps) delayed the start of the...

Logan Webb vs. Jordan Hicks

The San Francisco Giants head to Busch Stadium tonight to take on the St. Louis Cardinals to kick off a three-game series tonight.

Taking the mound for the Giants will be Logan Webb, making his seventh start of the season. Webb enters tonight’s game with a 3.82 ERA, 2.67 FIP, with 27 strikeouts to eight walks in 35.1 innings pitched. Webb has not been as sharp as he was in his dominant season last year, averaging three runs in...

Oh look it’s your favorite Cardinals team, again

And so we run it back, this time in Missouri.

I know you don’t want to see the St. Louis Cardinals again so soon. Or ever, for that matter. But that’s the reality the San Francisco Giants are facing. And you know who they get after the Cards? That’s right, the Colorado Rockies. Again.

Cool.

I think the MLB schedule makers are seeing double.

Friday BP: Tyler Beede picked up by Pirates, Mike Ford traded back to Mariners

Tyler Beede, as well as the TBD/T. Beede jokes, shall be missed. And, well, we never really got a chance to get to know Mike Ford enough to miss him but we wish him well nonetheless.

Good morning, baseball fans.

Happy Friday! The San Francisco Giants are headed to Missouri today as they prepare to take on the St. Louis Cardinals once again.

Some news broke yesterday during the off-day. The Pittsburgh Pirates have claimed Tyler Beede off of...

Pirates claim RHP Tyler Beede off waivers from Giants

Devoting an active roster spot to a pitcher still battling control woes proved too much for a win-now Giants team, but that’s an easier dice roll for a rebuilding Pittsburgh club.
