Buster Posey hits another grand slam, Giants storm to 6-0 win against Padres

Ryan Vogelsong was marvelous again, and he added some goop to a messy situation. Ian Kennedy had allowed a home run to the Giants before. The longtime Giants nemesis gave up one just last year. It was Chris Dominguez's only career hit, and it went a long way. Also, the Giants lost. He allowed two in 2012, one to Melky Cabrera and one to Brandon Belt. The Diamondbacks were up by three runs in both games, and they would hold on to win. In 2011, he allowed two in the same game, one to Cody Ross and one to Aubrey Huff. The Diamondbacks won by three. Here is the underrated villain for the...

Giants thump Dodgers behind Buster Posey's grand slam

The Giants scored nine runs, and they're making us think they're really good at beating the Dodgers. The 2015 Giants season is a six-hour foreign film with mixed reviews, and you're about a third of the way through. There are amazing stretches of transcendent brilliance. There are extended segments where the lead actor changes the diaper of an avocado and cries and cries and cries. You want so much to like the good parts, the bad parts are so very long, so very bad. It's hard to analyze right now. We need the benefit of hindsight. Except, let me offer a helpful reminder: If this weird...
