MLB Draft 2015: Giants picking 18th

Will the Giants draft pitching to replenish a thin system, or will they surprise the draftniks? We're about a month away from sweet, hot draft action. You don't care about the draft? Oh, I guess you don't care about Madison Bumgarner, three-time world's champeen. You don't care about BUSTER POSEY. You don't care about baseball. The Giants have two picks in the first round. This is their reward for sleeping throughout the offseason and losing Pablo Sandoval. Embrace this consolation prize. Embrace it. Over the last week, two mock drafts have come out, mock-assigning Giants a couple of...

Bumgarner won't escalate war of words with Carlos Gomez; Bochy has no plans to tell his ace to simmer down on mound

MILWAUKEE – Madison Bumgarner can speak 1,000 words with a glare from 60 feet away.

Madison Bumgarner hit a home run off Clayton Kershaw

Kershaw tried to sneak a first-pitch fastball by Bumgarner, which ... nope. As Alex Pavlovic reminds us, Bumgarner's last two home runs have been against Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw. Your browser does not support iframes. Man, what I wouldn't have given for a big ol' hypocritical bat flip right there.

Game 40 Thread: May 21 @ Giants, 12:45p

From @akaTheConman, who else?Clayton Kershaw (2-2, 4.24) vs. Madison Bumgarner (4-2, 3.20). Shit shit shit. The Dodger Express has hit a wall called AT&T Park, where their bats have gone into deep freeze. Put it this way: The first run they score today will be the second run they will have scored ALL WEEK. Regression to the mean is a bitch. Meanwhile, Kershaw keeps striking 'em out...and allowing runs. He'll be fine, Daniel Brim of Dodgers Digest tells us. Well, today would be a good day to start getting there.

Who will the Giants remove from the starting rotation when everyone's healthy?

Short answer: Not everyone is likely to all be healthy at the same time. Jake Peavy is pitching in the Giants' instructional league, now. After that, a rehab start or three. Then he would ostensibly would be ready to come back to the rotation. Matt Cain probably won't return quite as quickly, but he's hoping to come back at or around the All-Star break, possibly a little before. The question before you: What in the heck happens in two months if/when both pitchers are healthy? It's too early to speculate, so let's speculate. The rotation is currently Madison Bumgarner, Tim Hudson, Tim...
