    We're about 72 hours from the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline and although their isn't one particularly glaring area of concern on the Giants' roster right now, it hasn't kept Bobby Evans and Brian Sabean from scouring the market for potential upgrades.The Giants have been on of the better teams in baseball since the All-Star break, and now with the return of Nori Aoki Monday night, they are finally working with a full deck. Surprisingly, the Giants have cruised to their 55-44 record without having their projected opening day roster in-tact together much at all. They were without Cain,…
  • Giants' offense comes alive vs. Phillies

    11 Jul 2015 | 12:36 am
    The Giants have been struggling mightily since the calendar flipped from June to July, and a big reason for those struggles has been the play of the offense. They've had multiple guys go through slumps at the same time in recent weeks but all that came to a halt on Friday night at AT&T as the Giants had a historic night at the plate.Duffy relevant in ROY chaseFacing what appears to be one of the most sought after commodities of this trade season, Cole Hamels, the Giants surprisingly put forth their best offensive performance of the season, scoring 15 runs, but also set a San Francisco…
  • Time to shake up lineup?

    19 Jun 2015 | 12:02 am
    Prior to Thursday night's nice little offensive output of 7 runs in Seattle, clutch hits and runs were about as tough to come by as they've been at any point this season. My suggestion, and frankly something I'm surprised Bochy hasn't tried to do more of is mix up the lineup a bit.One of the big moves I have been pondering over in my mind is possibly swapping Matt Duffy and Angel Pagan in the batting order, at least while Hunter Pence is out. Matty D seems to be putting it together right now and is one of the Giants' better clutch hitters with runners on base and in scoring position. Mix that…
  • Giants select RHP Phil Bickford at 18

    8 Jun 2015 | 9:47 pm
    Well, as the Giants pick at 18 in the MLB's annual June Amateur Draft approached, one huge name stayed available that I was hoping would end up falling to the Giants, but alas, Brady Aiken was taken one selection before the Giants pick at 18. Instead, the Giants went with another young arm, and one that many had going in the top-15 in Southern Nevada's right-hander, Phil Bickford.SF takes RHP Phil Bickford 18thI don't know a whole lot about Bickford other than what I've read and watched in recent draft coverage and player previews.

  • Giants blow leads in 9-8, 12-inning loss to Braves

    Vince Cestone, KRON
    3 Aug 2015 | 11:38 pm
    ATLANTA (AP) — Brandon Crawford felt confident that the San Francisco Giants were about to wrap up another victory and head to the hotel early. Then everything fell apart. “We probably should have put them away early,” Crawford said. “Tough loss. We probably relaxed too much, and they jumped on us.” Crawford hit two home runs that helped the Giants to an early 6-0 lead, but starting pitcher Matt Cain and the San Francisco bullpen struggled in a 9-8 loss to the Atlanta Braves in 12 innings Monday night. Adonis Garcia ended the game — and completed Atlanta’s…

    ATLANTA (KRON) — The San Francisco Giants have placed second baseman Joe Panik on the 15-day disabled list, the team announced Monday. Panik has been out of the lineup for two out of the last four games because of lower back discomfort. He was placed on the disabled list with lower back inflammation Monday, the team said. The Giants have purchased the contract of infielder Kelby Tomlinson to take Panik’s spot on the active roster. Tomlinson was hitting .316, with a .354 on-base percentage in 136 at-bats in Triple-A Sacramento. Panik was hitting .309, with a .374 on-base…

    For the past few seasons, the NFC West has held the title of being the toughest division in the league. With the collapse of the San Francisco 49ers, will that still hold up? 1. Arizona Cardinals: The Cardinals managed to make the playoffs without a quarterback. Carson Palmer went down with an injury halfway through the season and backup Drew Stanton didn’t even finish the season before being injured. The fact that they went 11-5 despite all of that shows how good of a team they can be. If they stay healthy this season, then Arizona will be one of the best teams not just in the NFC, but…

  • Kurt Warner says Colin Kaepernick might run too often for the 49ers

    3 Aug 2015 | 2:34 pm
    Much of the hype about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick‘s improvement this offseason has been a result of his work with legendary Super Bowl star Kurt Warner. Warner’s instruction has supposedly helped shorten Kaepernick’s throwing motion and has him putting more touch on his throws. There’s no question that he can help Kaepernick become a better pocket passer, but when it comes to running that’s over his paygrade. Here’s what Warner told Eric Branch this weekend about Kaepernick’s run-and-create game: “I told him early on, ‘Here’s the one hard part about…
  • The San Francisco 49ers are totally loaded at defensive end

    3 Aug 2015 | 10:20 am
    One of the more intriguing things to me about the first day of camp for the Sam Francisco 49ers was that the defensive line consisted of Glenn Dorsey, Ian Williams, and Quinton Dial as the starters. The funny thing about that if you didn’t know is that they were all Nose-Guards on the depth-chart last season. A question that also pops into my mind when thinking about this is: “Where do Darnell Dockett and Tank Carradine fit into this?” Both are very capable players and Dockett certainly deserves the start more than Dial. It’s almost disrespectful really, but I’ll tell you why Dial…

  • Three reasons why the 49ers and Seahawks rivalry isn’t over

    3 Aug 2015 | 6:00 am
    The San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks gave us the NFL’s best rivalry from 2012-14. Due to a hugely disappointing 2014 season and horrendous offseason like no other, many believe San Francisco’s rivalry with their arch-rivals will actually die down a bit, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. We all know the good moments, but nothing beats Richard Sherman’s rant on Michael Crabtree, or him telling the 49ers fans to shut up after intercepting Colin Kaepernick on Thanksgiving last year. Now, it’s time to look at the three reasons why the rivalry isn’t over. You may also…

Many are already calling the 49ers’ the worst team in the league after losing virtually all the talent on their roster: Perrish Cox, Chris Culliver, Patrick Willis, Justin Smith, Chris Borland, Jim Harbaugh, Frank Gore and Michael Crabtee. Another key storyline will be Adrian Peterson’s return to the NFL after a year off hiatus. How will he do against a team in transition? It’ll be interesting to see.

  • Boy, Our SF “City Family” is Really Counting on Stealing the Oakland Warriors from Oakland – “LET’S GROW WARRIORS?”

    TweetIs there anything wrong with leaving the Golden State Warriors in Oakland? Anyway, here’s the scene in Golden Gate Park – I can’t imagine this arboreal/sports clothing line program “makes money” for our City Family, but rich like having fun too, and this is one way for them to do it: What’s next, “Let’s Grow Niners?”
  • Opposition to SF’s Plan to Destroy 26 Healthy Hardwoods at Geary & Masonic: “SAVE OUR TREES From DEVELOPERS”

    TweetHere’s the word on the street, from fliers posted all over: Get up to speed on the coming ARBOR-GEDDON here. I’m not sure about the reference to “DEVELOPERS.” SFGov is fixing on taking out two lanes of parking / rush-hour lanes betwixt Geary and Masonic. It’s not like they’re cutting down these trees to put up a condo building. Here’s the proposal for after these old trees get cut down – it’s another “street art” project, complete with new, transplanted palm trees. Kind of an L.A. look. Here’s what it looks like now…

    The Cracker Lady's House

  • Why My Mom Sent Me To The Vet In Yerington

    27 Jul 2015 | 9:15 am
    Why My Mom Sent Me To The Vet In YeringtonIt was the best of times; it was the worst of times, 1956 and 1957 were not my best childhood years. In 1956, at age 8, I came down with rheumatic fever and was on total bed rest for a whole year.  When I returned to school the next year, I was required to lay down in the nurse’s office at all recesses for the first six months of the fourth grade. I could see all the children playing on the playground and longed to join them.  When I was finally released to go to recesses, I went absolutely crazy.  I  rejoiced on every piece of…
  • The Cracker Lady’s House Roots

    6 Jul 2015 | 6:53 am
    The Cracker Lady’s House RootsThe question was asked recently by a Facebook friend, “ What is this cracker lady house stuff all about? I have no idea what the cracker lady house is.”  Well, the origin of the Cracker Lady goes clear back to 1977 and I was in my last year of Bible College in Tennessee.  Most of the time that I lived in Cleveland, Tennessee, I attended a very large white church.  But in my last year of college, I felt the Lord’s leading to go minister in the black church across town. Don’t ask me why He would wanted this country white girl in a black…
  • The Last Road in Yerington

    28 Jun 2015 | 12:28 am
    The Last Road in YeringtonThere is a road I’ve yet to travel.  It is not the longest or the most adventurous road I’ve traveled. It is not the first time I have driven this road, but It is the last road I will ever go down.  It will start at the corner of Main & Bridge Street.    The Wells Fargo Bank will be on the left and the Copeland Lumber Company will be on the right. It might be called something else now, but when I was a kid it stood there like a big orange square Jack-o-Lantern with its black cat logo.  Every time I went by it I would count how many…
