Brandon Belt out of lineup again

Lincecum being caught by anyone-but-Posey is creating some complications. Here's a lineup for you: Tonight's #SFGiants lineup: Aoki lf Panik 2b Pagan cf Posey 1b Maxwell rf Susac c McGehee 3b Crawford ss Lincecum p — #WeAreSF #WeAreGiant (@SFGiants) April 27, 2015 This is the same kind of suspenders lineup that Bruce Bochy used on Saturday. I call it a suspenders lineup because apparently you don't need a Belt with it. Hahahahahahahaaaaaa. Ha ha ha. Ha. Anyway, this is annoying. Apparently, there are two threats to Brandon Belt's spot in the lineup these days: Left-handed...

The do's and don'ts of worrying about the 2015 Giants

It's a four-game losing streak, everyone. Time to freak out or calm down, depending on your tastes. Four-game losing streak. Last place. Under .500. It's only the second week of the season. Four-game losing streak. Last place. Under .500. It's only the second week of the season. Four-game losing streak. Last place. Under .500. You can just feel the fun of April when things don't go well. I'm here to help. You know that Norichika Aoki isn't going to hit .412 this season, just as you know that Brandon Belt isn't going to hit .154. This, then, is a guide for all the things in between....

Brandon Belt, Jake Peavy likely to avoid DL

For all the doom and gloom of the last 48 hours, the news could be worse. After yesterday's sopping mess of baseball news and events, we have a positive update from Arizona. Brandon Belt's groin is fine. That is, his right groin strain is low grade, and he hopes to take batting practice. The MRI showed a mild strain, and he's listed as one of the possible players off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks. He seems likely to avoid the disabled list.

Giants lose, 7-6, Brandon Belt hurt

Other than that ... This is why baseball should have ended last year. Pablo catches it. There's a parade. Everyone thanks the baseball players for everything they've done. The credits roll. There's a where-are-they-now montage at the end. Madison Bumgarner is roping horned animals. Buster Posey is Governor of Georgia. Joe Panik is Lieutenant Governor.

On purpose! And this was the kind of game...
