Giants infielder Matt Duffy again rocking ‘Duffman’ on his bat knobs (photo)

Given the easy leap from his surname to “Duffman,” the enthusiastically psychotic beer pitchman from “The Simpsons,” it’s hardly a surprise that San Francisco Giants infielder Matt Duffy has gravitated towards adopting the moniker as part of his baseball identity. But that doesn’t make it any less cool. As was the case late last season...Read More The post Giants infielder...

The 2015 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide and Draft Pack, with two great draft day tools, are here! Get your copies today! By ERA and WHIP, Madison Bumgarner was his usual, dominant self last season.

Tim Lincecum Continues to Impress at Spring Training

It seems like just yesterday San Francisco Giants pitcher, Tim Lincecum was one of the best pitchers in baseball. Since 2011, Lincecum has had a pretty big fall from grace; in 2012 he finished with an ERA of 5.18 and a career high, 15 losses. Since then, he’s been mediocre at best, finishing the 2013 season with a 4.37 ERA, and the 2014 season with a 4.74. What is puzzling about...

2015 MLB Predictions: San Francisco Giants

San Francisco Giants: It’s a family affair for Tim Lincecum

With Spring training now in full swing for the San Francisco Giants, people will find that Tim Lincecum and his long, luscious hair are back and more importantly so is his father, Chris Lincecum, as the three time champion’s full-time pitching guru. The two had grown apart over the past three years, resulting in spotty pitching and tough critiques from Lincecum’s father. But...

Burrell Finally Gets His Due

Pat "The Bat" Burrell was WSBGMs first inductee into our Hall of Fame.  Here's a snippet from the first ballot from back in 2009.Pat Burrell - Burrell is my favorite Phillie of all time, so this is a sentimental pick for me. But he has some WSBGM's Hall cred, too. Possibly no other player has been as analyzed and scrutinized as often and as severely as Pat Burrell. But his on...

Young Giants duo confident after playing key role

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Joe Panik is young but full of confidence at spring training. It helps that the 24-year-old is the projected starting second baseman for the defending champion San Francisco Giants after a stellar half-season in 2014 that saw him hit .305 in 73 games and log five extra-base hits and eight RBIs in 17 postseason games.

San Francisco Giants Prospect Profile: Andrew Susac

The San Francisco Giants farm system isn’t strong by any means.  While they have depth at pitching, none of them rate as potential front-line aces; much more like #2,#3 starters or even back-end starters at the MLB level.  As for position player, it’s even more bleak in terms of depth.  But they do however have one prospect that is a cut above and projects to be a very good...

Madison Bumgarner looking like Paul Bunyan

Madison Bumgarner is as country as it gets, and we mean that in a good way. This dude can rock tight jeans, a flannel, suspenders and ax with the best of ‘em. Does anyone look more perfect alongside an ox all Paul Bunyan-style than this guy? It’s a great fit. Photo via @SFGiants

Madison Bumgarner dresses as Paul Bunyan at spring training

Given that the legend of Madison Bumgarner is quickly reaching that of a mythical figure, it’s only fitting that Bumgarner dressed up as a Paul Bunyan-esque figure for Giants spring training. Bumgarner modeled the outfit (along with his ox friend) for the cover of the Giants’ official team magazine. #BusterPosey might be the #FaceOfMLB but Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Tom Seaver, Yusmeiro Petit, Hunter Strickland and Deception

“Tom Seaver, he had the whole package. Power, deception, command, everything,” said Giants pitching coach Dave Righetti last week before FanFest.

San Francisco Giants continue to innovate internally

Innovation doesn’t always come on the field. Innovation can invade any part of the sport, really. And innovation doesn’t always mean you are first in your field, even if that sounds wrong. If you define innovation as the introduction of something new, the Giants are constantly innovating upon their own processes. “You always have to […]
