San Francisco Giants Link Dump, 7/17

I can show you that when it starts to dump, everylink's the same Happy birthday to Justin Knoedler! Uh, the pickings were a little slim today. BASGcast (Ep. 100!): All-Star Break Giants check-in with Grant BrisbeeThe Bay Area Sports Guy podcast talks to Grant about trade possibilities for the Giants, and as any longtime reader would expect, Grant waxes poetic about Ben Zobrist. He also discusses other second basemen too, like Martin Prado, some Murphy (Daniel, I think, but it might be Donnie or Davey or Dale), and Chase Utley, but let's not be fooled. Zobrist is the apple of his...

Giants interested in Ben Zobrist

Second base has been a wasteland for most of the season. The Rays' second baseman would help. You're not thinking about the trade deadline. You're thinking about the Giants being terrible. Over the last 30 days, they've played like they're 25 pieces short of a contender, give or take. Still, as long as they're in contention, rumors like this will play. From Chris Haft and Ryan Hood at SFGiants.com The already active speculation about the Giants' interest in Tampa Bay handyman Ben Zobrist has increased. Giants special assignment scout Pat Burrell recently was seen at Tropicana Field, where...
Tampa's Joe Maddon ejected as potential beanball battle begins with Tigers

Tampa's Joe Maddon ejected as potential beanball battle begins with Tigers

DETROIT — Has last year’s game of one-upmanship and retaliation spilled over to this season? Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon was ejected in the sixth inning of Friday’s game against the Detroit Tigers, after warnings were issued to both benches following a third hit batter of the game.

At the time, Maddon said he wished Cabrera “didn’t cry so much.” Friday’s plunking battle started in the...
