Veterans who used to be reliable for fantasy statistics have suddenly dropped off a cliff in terms of production, while that player no one had ever heard of on draft day is now suddenly leading the league in a key stat category. Fantasy baseball owners need to be vigilant, always on the lookout for a player that can improve their roster. You can’t cling to old favorites or local prospects; the owner that wins the league is the one that makes decisions with their brains and ignores what the heart…

    Well, much like the issue in San Diego, the Giants were again unable to get any kind of scoring going against the Rockies number 4 starter.The Giants managed  to get 12 guys on base throughout the game, but the problem with that is that only 5 of those guys got on via base hit. That just gives you an idea of how tough it is for this team to come by hits right now, which with their lack of power is crucial. That's how you get 12 base-runners and don't score, you simply don't hit. Angel Pagan, who I admit I still like in the three spot, really failed miserably today, leaving 5 guys on base…

On the plus side, they did finally get Brandon Belt back for the first time since opening day on Sunday, however Casey McGehee went down with a knee strain on Saturday, so the Giants still won't be at full strength for Monday's opener.

    Now this is where we really get to have our fun as we go through each major award for each league and then pick the batting tittle winner, home run winner and ERA leaders for each league. And yes, although we're halfway through opening day by the time this gets posted, we have taken no stats from the few games played thus far into account. So, here are the guys we think will take home the individual hardware at the end of the 2015 season.American League AwardsAL MVP: Robinson Cano, 2B, Seattle: I think year two is going to be the year Cano pays off big time in Seattle, and with…

  • Giants unable to pick up shaky Heston

    Jack Etkin and Owen Perkins
    24 Apr 2015 | 11:05 pm
    The Rockies overcame three Giants' leads to win their series opener, 6-4, on Friday. A three-run sixth put the Rockies ahead for good. The rally included run-scoring doubles by DJ LeMahieu and pinch-hitter Rafael Ynoa.
  • Giants impressed with Heston's composure after outing

    Owen Perkins
    24 Apr 2015 | 10:48 pm
    The Giants learned a lot about rookie Chris Heston when he was called up to fill Matt Cain's spot in the rotation and he responded with three starts of six innings or more while allowing one earned run or less. They may have learned even more about him seeing him face his first adversity of the season when he was touched up for six runs on 11 hits in 5 1/3 innings at Coors Field in Friday's 6-4 loss to the Rockies.

    Both starting pitchers for Colorado and San Francisco will seek to reverse their recent fortunes at Coors Field on Saturday. Tim Hudson is 0-2 with a 7.29 career ERA at Coors Field, where he's given up 55 hits in 42 innings. Jorge De La Rosa is looking to recover from a disastrous season debut at Coors when he matched a career high nine runs (seven earned) over two innings Monday.

  • The San Francisco Giants Could Become the First MLB Team to Ban Chewing Tobacco

    kivac23
    22 Apr 2015 | 2:18 am
    A San Francisco city ordinance could make the Giants the first team in Major League Baseball to ban chewing tobacco on the field. City supervisors voted unanimously on Tuesday to ban smokeless tobacco in playing fields throughout the city and specifically targeted baseball—a sport infamous for the player’s use of tobacco, according to a statement from the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, which pushed for the law. The ordinance must pass one more vote and, if San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee signs, the rule will be implemented on Jan. 1 2016—in time for the MLB baseball season. Jess Montejano,…

    The Yomiuri Giants today signed former Milwaukee Brewer and Toronto Blue Jay Juan Francisco for 140 million yen (approx. $1.17 million).  Those of you who read this blog with any regularity know that I love to write about the the North American players Japanese NPB teams recruit. On the plus side, Francisco is age 28 this season, which is just about the ideal age for North American 4-A rookies in NBB, and he’s got MLB class power and significant MLB experience, two things NPB teams covet and value.  On the down side, Francisco strikes out a god-awful lot, and NPB pitchers know how to…

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS /AP) — Tim Lincecum shut down the first-place Dodgers with some sparkling double-play defense behind him, and the San Francisco Giants came out of their first day off seemingly refreshed to beat Los Angeles 6-2 on Tuesday night. Justin Maxwell hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning and San Francisco won for just the second time in 11 games behind Lincecum’s first victory in three starts, snapping the defending division champion Dodgers’ seven-game winning streak. Nori Aoki, Brandon Crawford and Buster Posey hit RBI singles for the Giants, who turned…
  • 2015 and 2009: The tales of the Giants' offensive struggles

    Zebra
    21 Apr 2015 | 8:09 pm
    The Giants are off to a 4-10 start, in large part due to the inability of their offense to come through with runners in scoring position. In 2009, the Giants got off to a similar start. They won two of three from the Milwaukee Brewers to open the season, and then they went 0-6 on a road trip through San Diego and Los Angeles. The Giants got runners on base during that trip, but they had a hard time knocking them in. Fast forward to 2015. The Giants took two of three in Arizona, and then after a 1-0, 12-inning marathon on April 9, the Giants have lost nine of their last 10. The Giants, just…

  • NFL position rankings: Landon Collins tops thin safety group, but how good is he? (Shutdown Corner)

    23 Apr 2015 | 11:20 am
    There are few starting-caliber safeties in this draft class who fit the ideal NFL mold teams are seeking, with the ability to play in space in man and zone coverages and match up with seam-splitting tight ends, as well as coming down to help stop the run. They’re hard to find. Alabama’s Landon Collins is a former five-star prospect who appeared on the verge of stardom as a sophomore, but his game didn’t develop as expected in a good but not great junior season. Still, he declared early and likely will be rewarded for it as the first safety drafted. His combination of size, athleticism…
  • Throwback Thursday: The Aaron Rodgers Draft (and more!) of 2005 (Shutdown Corner)

    23 Apr 2015 | 9:41 am
    The 2005 NFL draft will forever be The Aaron Rodgers Draft. The most famous image from that day was Rodgers impatiently sitting in the green room until the Green Bay Packers took him with the 24th pick. And the most enduring story from that draft is that 23 different times teams passed on a future Hall-of-Fame quarterback. The team that most famously passed on Rodgers was the San Francisco 49ers. They took quarterback Alex Smith first overall. Smith hasn't been bad, but he hasn't been a multiple MVP or Super Bowl champion like Rodgers either. So many teams have regrets about passing Rodgers.

The settlement, approved by Judge Anita Brody, includes allowing for monetary awards of up to $5 million per retired player for serious medical conditions associated with repeated head trauma and could cost the league $1 billion over 65 years. NFL general counsel Jeff Pash said the league, with $10 billion in annual revenues, looked forward "to implementing the terms of the settlement and…

    Per the Chicago Times, former San Francisco 49ers and current Chicago Bears defensive lineman Ray McDonald will not be punished by the NFL after the league deemed he didn't violate the league’s personal conduct policy stemming from a domestic violence incident last August. Charges were never filed against McDonald due to his arrest on suspicion of felony domestic violence. After police investigated, they cited a lack of sufficient evidence to go forward. The 49ers released them shortly after. According to the report, the league still is investigating the incident and will keep the case…

  • Finding Playmakers at ILB - Draft Science 2015 part 3

    24 Apr 2015 | 11:25 am
    In Part three of this year’s Draft Science, I am diving into the Inside Linebackers. Most analysts will dwell on the edge linebackers, but you need playmakers in the middle too. As the NFL drifts more toward being a “passing league”, two things happen. First, Inside linebackers become more valuable if they can stay on the field on passing downs. Secondly, change of direction becomes essential in being able to play coverage on those downs.I have covered the design of these metrics in the Offensive line and Cornerback stories, so I will move on to the linebackers directly. As usual,…

  • You May Be From Yerington In the 50’s-70’s If…. (Part Two)

    20 Apr 2015 | 12:18 pm
    You May Be From Yerington In the 50’s-70’s If…. (Part Two)...You know which side of a dead cottonwood tree the edible mushrooms grow (MB)… When you are hunting, hiking or mushroom picking to close all the head gates and to pack out what you packed in. (MB),,,You love the aroma of new mowed alfalfa. (MB)...You remember the dog catcher patrolling on his 1930’s bike, but still question where the basted dogs sat. (MB)      ...You are a Giants fan who despises, no absolutely hated, the LA Dodgers.  Dodger blue makes you nauseated. (MB)...You remember when…
  • You’ve Stood the Test of Time

    You’ve Stood the Test of Time      Today, my Aunt Connie is going on the Honor Flight to Washington D.C. with the vets to see the WWII veterans memorial and other sites.  This is a program put on by the University of Nevada.  It is completely paid for by volunteers.  Someone from Aunt Connie's church will be her chaperone.  My aunt, Carol Conrad McGee, was a WWII navy nurse.  She is now 94 years old.  This will be a challenging trip for her, but has a sweet determination to go.  On her trip, they’re going to have a “mail call” on…
  • Yerington’s 1950’s Kids Chase The Mosquito Truck

    Yerington’s 1950’s Kids Chase The Mosquito Truck A Memoir by Mary Burns(Published in the Mason Valley News in 1987)Burns Kids 1950'sMary BurnsThe year is 1959(ish) in a South Yerington neighborhood after dinner on hot July evening. Twenty or so juvenile type renegades come streaming out of our houses and start gathering on the big lawn.  Our tummies now full - we are ready for some action.  Could this be the night? It hasn’t happened in awhile. Maybe it will show tonight.  Twenty little kids, nauseous with anticipation, are impatiently shifting around the big lawn.

    You May Be From Yerington In the 50’s-70’s If…. (Part One) (Compiled by Mary Burns and Chere Brown)...You wait to plant your “toms” ‘till after the snow melts off Pevine. (I’m loving all the southern Californian gardeners out today - we’ll have another freeze - guaranteed) (MB)  ...You know what a Lion’s Club Manure Haul is (was?)  (Lions club manure clean up for the fair. They haul the previous days straw and manure away to keep the fair clean.) (MB)       ...You remember school sports and activities were the town’s rallying hub.
  • Terror On Alt 95

    28 Mar 2015 | 6:43 pm
    Terror On Alt 95At the crossroads of Silver Spring, I pulled into a gas station to get my daughter, Shannon, a soda.  She had been demanding a coke for over fifteen minutes.  She was only three years old, but knew what she wanted. The afternoon was warm and we had no air conditioning in our car back in the early 70’s.  I was thirsty too.  We were going to visit my mother in Yerington about thirty-three miles away. Silver Springs was a true crossroad. East was Fallon, West led to Carson City, North was Fernley from which we had just passed through from Reno where we…

  • Dreaming Irish at Broadway San Jose: ‘Once’ (Review)

    Cy Ashley Webb
    23 Apr 2015 | 2:14 pm
    Girl – a Czech immigrant (Dani de Waal) pulls off lines that might seem unnecessarily quirky with a startling honesty. Lines like “Money will make you brave” and “he’s stopped” (in reference to someone who never got past his ex) might seem overly precious, but they work brilliantly here, coming at you filtered through the Czech translation (in English with Czech subtitles). The dialogue is only a small part of this, though. The visceral Irish tunes would have been enough – smacking as they did of long nights in Boston’s Black Rose –but here, the audience is treated to even…

  • Melissa Etheridge is M.E. – Live in the Vineyard (Video)

    Grammy winner Melissa Etheridge rocked Napa at the Live in the Vineyard music festival. “I feel like the change that has happened is sort of a balancing of power or control, back to the artist.” Fear is rampant among musicians and distributors alike when it comes to the evolution of the music industry. But, after 25 years building an award-winning music career, rock legend Melissa Etheridge decided to embrace the change, and go her own route. Not that there was any problems with Island (her former label). “They were great,” she says. “It was time to try my…
  • Enlightenment, Freemasonry & Mozart’s Magic Flute

    Opera San José resident artist Kirk Dougherty as “Tamino” encounters a dragon in “The Magic Flute” playing April 18 through May 3 at the California Theatre, San Jose. Much was in the air, when Mozart was writing.  The Reformation was stirring, as were ideas about the perfectibility of humankind.  Scratch the surface of the Magic Flute, and you’ll find them. The overture’s a perfect tease, severing the sensual effortlessness of a perfect musical gesture with the abrupt crispness of hands clapping. It burbles along, a sonic crazy quilt, a delightful sequence…
  • Meals on Wheels San Francisco Gala one to remember (Photos)

    Every year San Francisco rallies to support homebound seniors. It’s a remarkable, uplifting occasion. Meals on Wheels once again threw its lavish “Star Chefs and Vintners Gala,” and thousands come out to support the non-profit, bidding first discretely at a silent auction, and then later boisterously during a three-course dinner. By evening’s end, it was impossible not to be smitten by the outpouring of support. And, yes, also not to be satiated beyond any reasonable measure thanks to the treasures being served up by some of the city’s most revered culinary…
