Michael Morse, the Game 1 designated hitter, was once a shortstop

Brandon Crawford is 6-feet-2 and plays at about 211 pounds, which makes him relatively big for a shortstop. Perhaps worried that Crawford might outgrow the position, Geoff Head, one of the organization’s strength coordinators, has joked with Crawford for years… Continue Reading →

No changes with Giants' lineup for NLCS Gm 4 - Brandon Crawford (SS) San Francisco Giants

Brandon Crawford will remain in the No. 8 spot for Game 4 of the NLCS against the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Bruce Bochy sticks with struggling Gregor Blanco at leadoff for SF Giants

Hitting woes aside, Gregor Blanco has played a solid center field in the postseason. We’ll ask Bruce Bochy why, of course, but as I speculated on KNBR today, he might have been hesitant to have Hunter Pence lead off against lefty Gio Gonzalez and drop Gregor Blanco down because of lineup balance. Bochy would have had a 6-7-8 in some combination of Blanco, Juan Perez and Brandon Crawford. Notwithstanding Crawford’s success against lefties, I think he wanted to keep Pence in that middle-order position. A listener suggested advancing Joe Panik to leadoff and Crawford to second base. Aside...

PITTSBURGH - San Francisco shortstop Brandon Crawford hit more than a home run. He hit a mute button.

SF Giants rout Pirates in wild-card game; Crawford, Bumgarner star

By Henry Schulman Pittsburgh – Brandon Crawford came into this league with a grand slam, so the feeling of trotting the bases with three mates ahead of him was not new. But given the stakes, the importance of this hit, it’s a wonder he had time to breathe. The glove-first shortstop, who failed for the third straight season to edge his batting average to .250, became the slugging hero Wednesday night in the Giants’ first foray into the do-or-die wild-card baseball. Crawford’s fourth-inning grand slam in a scoreless game, the first in postseason history by a shortstop, and Madison...
