Game 14 Thread: April 22 @ Giants, 7pm

Clayton Kershaw (1-1, 4.42) vs. Madison Bumgarner (1-1, 5.29) I'm going to pretend that yesterday's game never happened.  One because we lost.  Two, because I was working until 1am last night and never saw any of the game.  So, lets start all over again and begin a new winning streak.  And we have the perfect guy to do it with the NL MVP going against the WS MVP (the first time in history those two award winners have been opposing starters in the same game per the mlb app).  So fire up all of those illegal streaming pages and VPN websites to watch the boys in blue!  Oh and here are...

What's wrong with the new World Series plaque?

A scandal at 3rd and King A specter is haunting San Francisco — the specter of poor grammar. From the giant Coke bottle in left field to the kale garden in center, a bronze curtain has descended upon AT&T Park. Do you think that intro is too grandiose? Then you don't understand the gravity of the existential threat that we all face here. Yesterday, we got our first look at a plaque outside AT&T Park commemorating the Giants' World Series win last year, and Madison Bumgarner's outstanding performance throughout the postseason. Only, well . . . take a look. There's a problem in...

Giants drop home opener, 2-0, extend losing streak to four games

Madison Bumgarner rode a horse. The horse was left on base. The game started with Madison Bumgarner riding a danged horse around the outfield. Jets screamed in the sky. A championship flag was raised, and the crowd was pulsing, pulsing, pulsing with excitement. It was a passionate, smart crowd, ready to see the Giants do good things. You can tell it was a passionate, smart crowd because new bullpen catcher Eli Whiteside got loud cheers in the pregame introductions. It was the perfect baseball day, and everyone felt it. The game ended with you asleep, so I hope you weren't listening to the...

UPDATED: Not a banner performance for Giants offense in 2-0 loss to Rockies

Overwritten with the final version for print... SAN FRANCISCO – The Giants followed “Fire On The Mountain” with a wet blanket. They raised a World Series banner, then hoisted a white flag in every clutch at-bat. They cheered Madison Bumgarner… Continue Reading → 

Giants raise World Series banner, Bumgarner rides tall in the saddle

SAN FRANCISCO – They finally let Madison Bumgarner sit tall in the saddle. The Giants raised their World Series banner prior to Monday’s home opener, and their World Series MVP delivered it on horseback. In front of a sellout crowd,… Continue Reading →

This makes all sorts of sense. Horses are awesome. They also hate Dodgers.

Game 7 Preview: 03/12 Padres vs. Giants

The Padres offense broke out against the reigning World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner last night, securing at least a series split against the Giants. Today they'll hopefully send Bochy and co. packing as the losers of the four-game set. But first, the Padres need to get past Jake Peavy and give Tyson Ross some of that run support we saw for James Shields. Peavy returns to his old home on the mound at Petco Park for the first time since 2009, and the first time as a visitor. The former Friar went 1-9 with a 4.72 ERA with the Red Sox last season before returning to the National League as a...

Extra Baggs: Madison Bumgarner breaks down what went wrong vs. Padres, etc.

SAN DIEGO – Casey McGehee went for an MRI exam. Andrew Susac went for X-rays. Giants fans probably went to the nearest bartender. (And maybe some of the Giants coaches, too.) Check back Sunday morning for test results, when they… Continue Reading → 

What Bumgarner, Bochy said about SF Giants’ defeat, McGehee injury

By Henry Schulman SAN DIEGO – When the Giants fly home for their World Series banner-raising Monday, they might want to bypass their fancy new charter plane and get on a medevac flight. Another player went down Saturday night in a homely 10-2 loss to the Padres, a rare and sound shellacking of Madison Bumgarner. Third baseman Casey McGehee injured his left knee during the seemingly innocuous act of leaving the batter’s box on a first-inning flyball to center. He left the game immediately and was undergoing an MRI late Saturday night. “It obviously didn’t look good,” Bumgarner said....

Bumgarner shelled, McGehee injured as Giants routed by Padres

San Francisco Giants ace Madison Bumgarner gives up five runs on 10 hits in five innings in 10-2 loss to San Diego Padres, and third baseman Casey McGehee becomes the latest injured position player.

Bumgarner, Vogelsong wrecked and McGehee injured in Giants' sloppy 10-2 loss to Padres

Running gamer for print... SAN DIEGO – The Giants did not set up their pitching staff for Ryan Vogelsong to lace up his spikes on Madison Bumgarner’s day to pitch. Then again, how much has gone to plan for the… Continue Reading → 

Extra Baggs: No demise yet for Giants rotation, grading McGehee's defense, Lincecum is effectively mild, book signing Thursday

SAN DIEGO – Remember way back when the Giants rotation was full of dry rot and falling apart? When you wondered how they could hope to get five clean innings from anyone besides Madison Bumgarner? When a 162-game season never… Continue Reading →

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. Brandon Belt is caught in a vending machine. There wouldn't have been sequels, but there could have been spin-offs. Baseball is over, everyone, thanks for coming. Instead, they started it up again. On purpose! And this was the kind of game...
