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

    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 […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 4/9/12 — Barry Zito

    The first complete game shutout of the 2012 MLB season has been pitched, and it may surprise some to hear who the pitcher that produced it was. Entering last night’s game against the Colorado Rockies, San Francosco Giants lefty Barry Zito hadn’t recorded a shutout in nine years, but he put an end to that […]

    Brian Wilson’s Beard Breaks Bats (Video)

    We were all warned to “fear the beard” as San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson displayed the power behind that thick batch of black hair growing from his neck during the Giants’ run to the World Series title last season.  During last night’s game against the Chicago Cubs, he put the power of the beard […]

    This Is Just Awkward (Video)

    Meet Kyle. Kyle, who has his very own YouTube channel, is apparently the king of the awkward interview.  I’m not quite sure if he is actually trying to be awkward, or if he simply can’t help himself.  Whatever the case may be, he has certainly used his mumbling voice and strange demeanor to build quite […]

    No one knows how to make a grand entrance quite like a Major League Baseball reliever.  On Tuesday night it was Paderes reliever Heath Bell getting the fans at Chase Field on their feet with a sprint-and-slide entrance at this year’s All-Star Game.  Last night is was Brian Wilson’s turn, as the Giants reliever made […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/6/11 — Nate Schierholtz

    After losing the first two games of their four-game series against the San Diego Padres, the San Francisco Giants were in danger of being swept by their division rivals.  Despite trailing late in the game, they were able to avoid that fate, thanks to some extra-inning heroics from Nate Schierholtz. The Giants right fielder entered […]

    Giants Fan Gets Run Over By Kayak In McCovey Cove (Video)

    The baseball souvenir free-for-all continues! But unlike what we have seen in previous weeks, this time the battle did not take place on the dry lands of the stadium bleachers.  Instead, it occurred beyond the outfield fence at AT&T Park, on the wet waters of McCovey Cove. Following a Pablo Sandoval blast, two kayakers squared […]

    Much like getting drunk in the outfield bleachers, throwing an opposing team’s home run ball back onto the field has become quite the tradition at Wrigley Field.  Oftentimes this turns into a rather embarrassing moment for the fan on the receiving end of the opposition’s homer, but every once in a while we get a […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/23/11 — Tim Lincecum

    Thus far the 2011 MLB season has been a disappointment for Tim Lincecum by his standards.  He entered last night’s game against the surging Minnesota Twins with a 5-6 record and a 3.39 ERA, which is very un-Lincecum-like, but he improved upon both of those stats with a Lincecum-like performance. The two-time Cy Young Award […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/2/11 — Aubrey Huff

    I know that hitting three home runs in a single game is not an easy thing to do, but Major League batters have been making it seem that way recently.  Carlos Beltran, Jose Bautista, Jason Giambi, Corey Hart and Carlos Quentin had all accomplished the feat heading into yesterday’s slate of games. You can now […]
