Span ramps up charitable efforts for holidays

As a leadoff batter, Denard Span knows that reaching base ranks among his top priorities. He can dictate a game's tone by establishing his team's offensive rhythm. Span, the Giants outfielder, intends to create similar empowerment through his charitable efforts. And in American society, few possessions are more empowering than a car.

Shohei Ohtani: exactly what the San Francisco Giants need

The San Francisco Giants have emerged as one of the front-runners to land Japanese free agent superstar Shohei Otani. The Giants are coming off a 2017 full of injuries and inconsistency, and Otani could be exactly what the doctor ordered to revive this team. The Giants are looking to add another pitcher to their under-performing rotation, and another bat to their aging lineup, and Otani would fulfill both needs. “Wait,” you might ask. “How can Otani fill both a hole in the rotation and...

Wait, is it actually good idea for the Giants to trade for Giancarlo Stanton?

It seems like this question gets overlooked in our dinger haze. The Giants are the favorites for Giancarlo Stanton. That’s the opinion of the source who talked to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com. It’s the opinion of the oddsmakers at Bovada, who have the Giants as overwhelming favorites, giving them 2/5 odds to get Stanton, with the second-place Cardinals taking 5/2 odds, and the third-place Red Sox at 15/1. These are exciting times. And I’m reminded of a quote from one of the greatest...

Back off the Brandon Belt trade rumors, you jackals

In which Sami spins the rant wheel and it lands on Brandon Belt trade rumors. You people are sick. Brandon Belt is a rare bright spot in a dark and terrifying world, a lone shot of adrenaline in a powerless lineup, and you want to take him away from us. Shame on you. Shame on your house. Shame on your ancestors. Are you peddling trade scenarios about him? SHAME. Are you entertaining crackpot trade rumors? SHAME. Have you needled a Belt fan by talking about how he will inevitably be traded?...

Giants Designate Micah Johnson, Orlando Calixte

The Giants have designated infielder Micah Johnson and utilityman Orlando Calixte for assignment, as Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle was among those to report on Twitter.

Snelten to the roster*. To make room for these players, the team designated Engelb Vielma, Micah Johnson, and Orlando Calixte for assignment.

The Giants are reportedly discussing Joe Panik in Giancarlo Stanton trade scenarios

There’s a catch, though. It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. If you’re interested in Giancarlo Stanton trade rumors, I would like to present a list of names that were bandied about by a Florida-based radio host with more sources than you: Remember your safe rumor-viewing practices, people. Use special glasses or do something pointless and lame with a cardboard box, but never look at the rumor directly. The first thing to point out is this isn’t a trade proposal. Mish isn’t...

Bobby Evans: Giants ‘Very Early In The Process’ On Giancarlo Stanton

SAN FRANCISCO —When news broke that the Miami Marlins were willing to shop slugger Giancarlo Stanton, few were surprised when the San Francisco Giants came knocking. Stanton is coming off of a historic NL MVP campaign in which he almost reached the 60-homer plateau. No player on the Giants roster hit more than 18 home runs last season, and as a club, the Orange and Black finished at the bottom of the table with 128 total home runs in 2017. Adding insult to injury, the corner outfield spots...

The Giants submitted a trade proposal for Giancarlo Stanton

That means ... well, it means that they submitted a trade proposal for Giancarlo Stanton. The Giants have officially submitted a trade proposal for Giancarlo Stanton, according to Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic. This doesn’t have to mean anything. This might mean everything. As always, it’s worth noting that both Don Corleone in Godfather II and Clarence Worley of True Romance submitted trade proposals, too. They ended with dead people. This specific trade proposal doesn’t have to end...

Five San Francisco Giants offseason needs

The sentiment of every fan of the San Francisco Giants is most likely a variant of this phrase: “let’s never talk about 2017 again.” The Giants posted one of their worst records in recent memory, finishing with a 64-98 record, making them the second worst team in the league. 2017 was a season filled with injuries and just general bad luck, starting with the freak accident that sidelined star pitcher Madison Bumgarner for a good chunk of the season. Going into the offseason, the Giants...
