Dan Uggla, Tyler Colvin officially designated for assignment

After a weird couple of days, the transactions we were expecting finally happened. Perhaps you were not around when the Giants accidentally designated Sergio Romo for assignment. That was a blast. I didn't think we'd have anything like it, but this Wednesday came close. Chris Haft got a (correct) scoop that was probably not supposed to get out, and there was damage control. Our celebrating was rudely interrupted. The scoop was that Tyler Colvin and Dan Uggla were released. It was quickly retracted, with the Giants saying they weren't sure what was going to happen with Uggla and, say, Tyler...

Giants do absolutely nothing at the trade deadline

Dan Uggla is still on the roster, though! The Giants had one of the most obvious holes on a contending roster, with second base a wasteland for almost the entire season. The Giants did not fill this hole with a trade. It's officially time to Panik, unless things get really, really Uggla. There were second basemen who moved, with Asdrubal Cabrera going to the Nationals for a 24-year-old 2B/3B with power, which seems like a moderately high price for a pending free agent who hasn't hit much this year. The Rays added Nick Franklin, my white whale, and all they had to give up was an aging...

UPDATE: SF Giants option Tyler Colvin, expected to part with Dan Uggla

UPDATE, 7:35 p.m.: The Giants have optioned struggling outfielder Tyler Colvin to Triple-A Fresno. I didn’t know he had an option remaining, but apparently he did. “Tricky stuff,” one source said. Dan Uggla is still a Giant, but probably won’t be when the team gets to New York. I got indications earlier today that Uggla […]

Giants release Tyler Colvin, Dan Uggla

The Dan Uggla era was vicious and violent. Many Twitterers were lost. In the end, the Giants realized he was bad at baseball, and they parted ways with him. If only there were some form of moving pictures or statistical record that could have alerted them before hand. Alas. Chris Haft has the scoop: The Giants did not officially announce cutting ties with Uggla, the three-time All-Star, or Colvin, who was signed to a Minor League contract during Spring Training. But multiple sources confirmed that the transactions were engineered. The final tally for Uggla as a Giant: 0-for-11, one walk,...
