Pablo Sandoval costs Giants first pick with walk-off homer

Even when the San Francisco Giants win, they lose. Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval hit a walk-off home run Sunday against the San Diego Padres — costing his team the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 draft. Instead, the Detroit Tigers secured the spot when they lost to the ...

Johnny Cueto, who can opt out, kids about whether he’ll return to Giants

After what might have been his final start with the Giants, Johnny Cueto messed with everybody. Asked if he would return in 2018, he devilishly said through interpreter Erwin Higueros, “I don’t know. Maybe. I’m sure I will.” Cueto expects to tell the Giants soon whether he plans to opt out of his six-year contract after two seasons but suggested negotiations between his agent and the Giants were necessary for him to stay. Cueto hardly has leverage after ending the season with an 8-8 record and 4.52 ERA, his worst since 2008, when he...

Giants’ Matt Cain treating final start like first 330

On the morning of his 331st and final major-league start, Matt Cain sat by his locker, alone. Someone had spliced a montage featuring dozens of his strikeouts over the years. It was playing on every TV screen in the clubhouse but one, which Cain was watching intently. He was watching the Red Sox-Astros game. Nobody would have known by looking at Cain that he was hours from ending a 16-year journey with the Giants, starting with his selection in the 2002 draft. The emotional ride awaiting him on the field at AT&T Park was not evident. In other...

Giants won’t lose 100! — they beat Padres, Cain is next

Matt Cain will make his last big-league start on Saturday and admitted to being a tad nervy. “You have nerves for the last start as you do for the first one,” he said on the eve of his finale. “You do.” The pressure’s off in one regard. Cain won’t be pitching with a 100-loss season on the line. The Giants walloped the Padres 8-0 Friday night, leaving them with 97 losses and two games to play. Their great escape avoided a repeat of the brutal 1985 season, still the only one in franchise history ending with triple-digit losses....
