The San Francisco Giants Love Each Other: Valentine’s Day Special

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I decided to reminisce on the love that has been shared throughout the San Francisco Giants clubhouse. The Giants have had their share of bromances, and what better day to celebrate those love affairs than today. Muah!   Matt Cain, Jeremy Affeldt and Madison Bumgarner What a group. Interesting to […] The San Francisco Giants Love Each Other: Valentine’s Day Special - Around the Foghorn - Around the Foghorn - A San Francisco Giants Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

San Francisco Giants and Madison Bumgarner are Not Rushing a Contract Extension

Heading into his ninth year in the major leagues, Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants have yet to discuss extending his contract. While the Giants would be foolish not to keep Mad Bum, it makes sense to table extension negotiations for the time being. As Madison Bumgarner emerged from the backcountry of South Carolina […] San Francisco Giants and Madison Bumgarner are Not Rushing a Contract Extension - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

San Francisco Giants: Expectations for the rotation heading into the season

Recently, every year the San Francisco Giants enter the season with one, if not the best rotation in all of baseball. For the Giants, the 2017 season is much of the same. San Francisco will be relying heavily on their starting staff to carry them into the postseason. For the most part, their rotation is […] The post San Francisco Giants: Expectations for the rotation heading into the season appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Posey, Melancon among Giants set for FanFest

SAN FRANCISCO -- The strange timing of this year's FanFest won't keep most of the Giants from attending. The entire lineup will be on hand next weekend at AT&T Park, with the exception of center fielder Denard Span. While Madison Bumgarner, Johnny Cueto and Matt Cain will skip the event, the rest of the projected pitching staff is expected to attend. New closer Mark Melancon will fly out to San Francisco, along with Matt Moore, who was acquired in the middle of the 2016 season. First-yearcoaches Jose Alguacil and Phil Nevin are among the newcomers.

MLB Network ranks Madison Bumgarner, Johnny Cueto among 10 best pitchers in baseball

MLB Network ranks Madison Bumgarner, Johnny Cueto among 10 best pitchers in baseball

It might or might not be true, but the idea should get you a little more excited about Opening Day. I spend most of my days worrying about Jarrett Parker and Mac Williamson. There’s a post coming today or tomorrow on it, and I’ll probably have one next week and the week after that. For the Giants to go with a pair of unknowns in a corner outfield spot, when they’re likely going to need every win they can scrounge up? Dunno, man. Seems risky. On the other hand, the Giants just might have two of the 10 best pitchers in baseball. That should help make up a lot of the difference. That...

Giants’ farm system ranked 20th by Keith Law, ESPN

Giants’ farm system ranked 20th by Keith Law, ESPN

Although our homes will be swept away in a river of bile and pus before these prospects make an impact, the depth is still encouraging. The Giants haven’t had a top farm system since the days of wee Buster Posey and teenaged Madison Bumgarner, and that won’t change for 2017 according to Keith Law. According to ESPN’s prospect expert, the Giants’ farm ranks 20th out of 30 teams. However, that’s also their highest ranking in years, which would be somewhat encouraging if we weren’t all going to die before some of these prospects are scheduled to debut, which we are. While the...
