Eduardo Nuñez wants to come back, but he’s not a great fit for the Giants

The Giants infielder is optimistic about the future of the team, but there might not be room. Picture a world without Buster Posey. Photo by John Moore/ No, it’s not pretty. But in this world, this awful, awful world, the Giants would have exactly one likely representative at the 2017 All-Star Game. That would be Eduardo Nuñez. If it seems odd, consider that this was the exact situation that befell the Twins last year. And now they’re contending! So the Giants are right on track! But if you look at the traditional stats that voters/coaches/players look at, as...

Giants’ Bochy reacts to Maddon’s comments on Posey

ATLANTA --- It has been six years, but Cubs manager Joe Maddon cited Buster Posey’s season-ending collision in 2011 when defending Anthony Rizzo for his part in a collision at the plate in Monday night’s Cubs-Padres game. A day after Rizzo crashed into Padres catcher Austin Hedges, Maddon reiterated that he’s not in favor of Rule 7:13 that was put in place to decrease collisions and protect catchers. “I’m really confused by why it gained so much attention only except for the fact Buster Posey got hurt a couple years ago,” Maddon said Tuesday morning on a Chicago radio...

Which Giants players have trade value?

Which Giants players have trade value?

You would be surprised, but there aren’t a lot of ultra-desirable players on baseball’s second-worst team. Let’s start with the obvious: We’re not here to talk about potential trades for Buster Posey and Madison Bumgarner. Because a) the Giants value their reputation as a fan-friendly organization too much, b) both players mean more to the organization than they would to another organization, at least right now, and c) get the hell out of here. When it comes to the other players on the roster, oh, boy, let’s dig in and talk about some sweet, sweet rebuilding. It’s a lot more...

Buster Posey making quick recovery

Buster Posey making quick recovery DENVER — The Giants received favorable news Friday on Buster Posey, who hurt his left ankle on Thursday night’s home-run swing and exited after jogging around the bases. The catcher could return to the lineup at first base Saturday. “Oh, I don’t know if we could’ve gotten better news,” manager Bruce Bochy said. By the end of Thursday’s game, after getting treatment, Posey was feeling much better and continued to improve Friday. The injury to Posey left the Giants with one healthy catcher, Nick Hundley. What if something had happened to...

Giants becoming historically bad, lose to Rockies

Make that four straight losses, 13 losses in 17 games and a season-high 17 games below .500. Manager Bruce Bochy, who has little patience left, was ejected in the seventh inning during a heated argument with plate umpire Gary Cederstrom, whose strike zone during a DJ LeMahieu plate appearance ticked off Jeff Samardzija. For the second straight game, the Giants rallied late to make it close. Thursday, they rallied from a 9-1 deficit to tie it only to lose on a walk-off single. Friday, they scored three runs the final two innings, and Buster Posey was given a chance to a game-tying homer in...

Giants get good news from sickbay on Posey, Nuñez

DENVER - The Giants received favorable news on Buster Posey, who hurt his left ankle on Thursday night’s home-run swing and exited after jogging around the bases. The catcher is available to pinch hit Friday night and could return to the lineup Saturday. “Oh, I don’t know if we could’ve gotten better news,” manager Bruce Bochy said. The absence of Posey leaves the Giants with one healthy catcher, Nick Hundley, for at least one game. The news also was favorable on Eduardo Nuñez, who left Thursday’s game with left hamstring tightness after he legged out an infield single. The...

Posey, Nuñez get good injury news after walk-off loss to Rockies

DENVER There was a moment Thursday night that seemed too cruel, even for an odd year, even for a clubhouse full of rings.Trailing by seven runs, the Giants watched Eduardo Nuez, their spark plug, limp off with hamstring tightness. Five minutes later, Buster Posey hit a two-run homer and felt a stabbing pain in his ankle. Posey followed Nuez into the trainers room as Bruce Bochy scrambled to put a reasonable lineup back on the field for the bottom of the inning.

Giants lose 10-9, Posey and Nuñez hurt

DENVER - You know it’s a lost season when a team’s best player hurts himself on a home run swing. The Giants rallied from a 9-1 deficit to tie Thursday night’s game in the ninth inning, but the Rockies won 10-9 in the home half of the inning by scoring off Hunter Strickland, who appeared in his third straight game. The Giants seemed to be playing out the string in the seventh inning when the season slipped two more notches into the ditch. The training staff got called into immediate duty, as did the front office if only because roster moves seem apparent. Buster Posey hit a home...

Buster Posey injured his ankle on a home run swing and Eduardo Nuñez hurt his hamstring on his 30th birthday, and if that weren't enough, the Giants came back from a 9-1 deficit only to see their NL West sinkhole widen to 16 1/2 games.
