    In Philadelphia, the fans are notoriously hard on everybody who sets foot on the field at Citizens Bank Park—players and non-players alike.

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/17/12 — Barry Zito

    Barry Zito’s career can be described as somewhat of a roller coaster ride that has had its fair share of ups and downs.  His 2012 season can be described in a similar manner, and on Tuesday night he was experiencing an “up” during his start against the Atlanta Braves.

    Whichever team ends up representing the National League in this year’s World Series will probably want to thank the San Francisco Giants.  After all, it was the solid performance from three of the Giants’ all-star representatives that helped the National League earn the 8-0 victory during last night’s midsummer classic, thus earning the NL World […]

    Crazy Fight Between Giants’ And A’s Fans (Video)

    Stat Line Of The Night — 6/3/12 — Barry Zito

    Since joining the San Francisco Giants in 2007, pitcher Barry Zito has had difficulties putting together a successful season on the mound.  Not only has he failed to keep his ERA under 4.00 in each of his five seasons in a Giants uniform, but he has also been unable to put together a record above […]

    At ballparks across America fans are warned to “be aware of objects leaving the field of play.”  Typically, those signs are referring to bats and balls that make their way into the stands, but on a windy day in San Francisco, that warning sign should have also included napkins, as an unsuspecting fan was smacked […]
