Here’s every time the Giants couldn’t come back in the ninth inning

The Giants are 0-62 when trailing after eight innings. Let's figure out how it happened. Why would I do this to myself? Why would I do this to you? Because it was there. That’s why. See, the Giants haven’t come back in the ninth inning once this year, and I’m fascinated by that. It’s enough to make you twitchy, even without the contrast of them allowing more comebacks than...

Someone on the 2016 Giants will literally get an award for being inspirational tomorrow

Like the ancient Chinese proverb goes, the two sweetest words in the English language are “de fault” Think about the 2016 Giants for a moment. What words are coming to mind? For me, the main one is ugghhhhhhhh, but you can also throw in terms like boring and why? and spiritless. They’re playing exceptionally dull baseball and have been for more than two months; they’re utterly...

Brandon Belt wants to punch friend D.J. LeMahieu in the face

Brandon Belt isn’t thrilled with his buddy D.J. LeMahieu. The San Francisco Giants belted the Colorado Rockies 12-3 on Tuesday night, and the Giants’ long-time first baseman led the charge with three hits. Belt would have added another hit without an impressive stab and dive from his friend, Rockies second baseman LeMahieu. LeMahieu showed off his athleticism and length on...

Gordon Beckham can do an outstanding Jake Peavy impression

The two were teammates on the White Sox, and Beckham had a little fun with Peavy four years ago. It has to be weird, getting traded with a week left in the season. Especially when you know you're not eligible for the postseason. Does Gordon Beckham even, I don't know, root for the Giants in the postseason? He would get a ring, I guess, so sure. But it seems indescribably odd. But...

WATCH: Is Madison Bumgarner a bully?

Once again Madison Bumgarner has found a reason to flip his lid as his recent dustup with Yasiel Puig started up due to Puig's "looking" at Bumgarner.

Why the San Francisco Giants are on the verge of a historical collapse
