The San Francisco Giants turned two months of Drew Pomeranz into several years of Mauricio Dubón thanks to briefly moving him to the bullpen prior to the 2019 trade deadline. The Brewers enjoyed great success from Pomeranz after acquiring him in that trade, and Pomeranz turned that into a lucrative deal with the Padres. Pomeranz was good when on th…

Luis Matos, Heliot Ramos, and Marco Luciano have brought a jolt of energy (and an influx of wins) to the San Francisco Giants as injury replacements over the last week or two. The trio of young Giants are essentially replacing Austin Slater, Nick Ahmed, and Michael Conforto, who are all on the injured list. What should the SF Giants do when those v…

The San Francisco Giants were in need of a spark, and instead they got a supernova. Luis Matos, recently called up from Triple-A as a fill-in for one of the Giants' many injured players, drove in 17 runs in a six-game span on his way to NL Player of the Week honors. No Giants player had accomplished the feat since Brandon Belt in 2018. Matos wasn't…

The San Francisco Giants have had a suboptimal first quarter of their season. At the 45-game mark, the Giants are 20-25, certainly not what the organization expected after investing so much money into the 2024 roster. Injuries and underperformance from key players have been a big part of the team's early struggles. But are those injuries a blessing…

After yesterday's walk-off win, the San Francisco Giants had another shot at extra-innings heroics today, but couldn't get it done against the Los Angeles Dodgers as they fell 6-4 at Oracle Park. It was another invasion at 3rd and King as Oracle Park was filled with Dodger blue, with scattered speckles of black and orange. Jordan Hicks pitched well…

Casey Schmitt had gone hitless in his first 12 plate appearances of 2024, but he sure picked a good time to collect hit No. 1.

The San Francisco Giants came into Saturday's game averaging just 2.87 runs per game since April 24, the lowest mark in the majors.

The SF Giants added…

The San Francisco Giants finally returned home from their grueling road trip but Oracle Park was not enough to get them back on track as they fell to the Cincinnati Reds 4-2.

Sweeping a team isn't easy, especially on the road and in Denver, but it would've gone a long way for the San Francisco Giants, who entered their series against the Rockies in the midst of a 1-6 road trip. The Giants leave Colorado having won two out of three, but they missed a chance to sweep in the finale. Instead of a 4-6 trip, the SF Giants com…

The San Francisco Giants finally got another road win after picking up a 5-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field.

Something's gotta give when two teams playing awful baseball match up, and that's exactly what we have in store tonight as the San Francisco Giants begin a three-game series in Denver against the Colorado Rockies. The Giants are 1-6 on their current 10-game road trip, so this has a chance to be a complete disaster if they don't turn things around a…

The San Francisco Giants are suddenly playing awful baseball. After losing two of three in Boston, the Giants were swept in a four-game series in Philadelphia. The SF Giants' offense can't get anything going, and they continue to allow way too many runs. It doesn't help that the Giants lost both of their catchers in this series. Patrick Bailey—argu…

The San Francisco Giants couldn't avoid the sweep at Citizens Bank Park, falling today to the Philadelphia Phillies 6-1.

The San Francisco Giants fell to the Philadelphia Phillies 14-3 at Citizen Bank Park on a very rainy day. The rain seemed to significantly hinder the San Francisco Giants playing ability both in the field and at the plate, while the Philadelphia Phillies looked like they were playing a version of backyard baseball or home run derby like kids in the…

The San Francisco Giants had so many opportunities to win last night's game. But time and time again, the Giants sustained self-inflicted wounds and lost by one run to the red-hot Phillies. Jorge Soler, in particular, failed to come through in two huge bases-loaded situations. Soler's season-long struggles have certainly cost the SF Giants, and the…

Today's win in Boston was huge for the San Francisco Giants. After losing the first two games of the series, the Giants needed a win to avoid a sweep to begin this 10-game road trip, and Kyle Harrison, the bullpen, and the SF Giants' defense delivered.

Blake Snell is currently on the San Francisco Giants' injured list, yet the Giants aren't relying on one of their top young starters to fill his place.

The San Francisco Giants were shutout by the Boston Red Sox tonight, falling 4-0. Logan Webb just did not have it tonight as he couldn't get out of the fourth inning despite throwing over 90 pitches.

After the Pittsburgh Pirates took the le…

The fireworks show started early for the San Francisco Giants. In a scoreless game in the bottom of the ninth, SF Giants catcher Patrick Bailey, fast becoming a mainstay in this league and perhaps even a legitimate star, blasted a three-run home run off Pirates closer David Bednar to deliver an exhilarating win for the Giants. This followed what wa…

The San Francisco Giants pulled this one out by the skin of their teeth, as beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-0 on a Patrick Bailey three-run, walk-off home run.

The San Francisco Giants looked like they had the makings of one of the best starting rotations in baseball. Logan Webb finished second in Cy Young voting in 2023 and is on a career-best run. Blake Snell, last year's NL Cy Young winner, sat right behind Webb in the Giants' rotation. But Snell is injured—a left adductor strain—and suddenly the Giant…

The San Francisco Giants fell to the New York Mets today by a score of 8-2 in the final game of their three-game set. But more importantly, high-profile free agent signing Blake Snell hit the 15-day injured list, which forced the San Francisco Giants to start Ryan Walker in a bullpen game (shoutout the Gabe Kapler regime). The loss foils the San Fr…
