The very NSFW video involves Rihanna toying with that idea — kidnapping a wealthy woman, dragging her around the desert, and hanging her upside in abandoned warehouses, periodically calling the…

    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. Bickford has bounced between the pen and rotation in his…
  • Duffy/Aoki outplaying Sandoval/Morse

    6 Jun 2015 | 3:03 am
    Remember when everybody was worried about how the Giants would replace the offensive production they got from The Panda and Michael Morse when both departed as free agents over the winter? Well, a third of the way through the first year post-Sandoval, and without Morse's presence from 2014, the incumbents have outperformed their predecessors.First off we'll take a look out in left field, where Nori Aoki took over for Michael Morse and allowed Bruce Bochy the flexibility to drop Angel Pagan (who, let's face it, isn't the world's best leadoff hitter) down in the order and it's worked out for…
  • Belt's success, Pence's return difference makers

    28 May 2015 | 10:39 pm
    For the first month or so of the season, the Giants had some roller coaster moments. They had a few upswings, then a few downswings with some injuries, but as we inch towards the end of May, they've really have seemed to have gotten things on track.Duffy Makin' Pablo Loss EasierFirst off all, the big news over the last week or so has been the reassignment of new third basemen Casey McGehee to Triple-A Sacramento, a role in which he didn't have to accept and could have collected his paycheck regardless.

    20 May 2015 | 2:22 pm
    Now that Hunter Pence has made his highly anticipated return, doing so with a bang I must add; more on that later), Brian Sabean and co. can start to really plan their course of action as we move toward trade season (at least in terms of positional needs). It's taken 6 weeks of the regular season but the Giants A-Lineup has arrived and it's looked pretty darn solid!Hunter Pence wasted no time making his presence felt in that batting order, as he went 4-8 with a whopping 5 runs scored to go along with a home run and two RBI. Talk about an explosive couple of welcome back games! Pence's return…

  • Padres Memories From Brent Strom

    sdpadres360
    2 Jul 2015 | 3:58 pm
      Brent Strom was born in San Diego and grew up playing baseball locally.  He was drafted by the Angels and Giants but never signed with either club.  He was finally drafted in 1970 with the 3rd pick in the 1st round by the New York Mets after a great career at USC. Brent made his debut with the Mets on July 31st, 1972, against the Expos where he pitched 6 2/3 innings, giving up 2 runs on 2 hits, walking 4 and striking out 7.  When the 1972 season was over, Brent was traded to the Cleveland Indians where he struggled most of the season finishing with a 2-10 record and a 4.61 ERA.
  • Fernandez homers in comeback to help Miami beat Giants, 5-4

    Vince Cestone, KRON
    2 Jul 2015 | 3:45 pm
    MIAMI (AP) – Jose Fernandez’s comeback required a comeback. The precocious right-hander shook off a rocky start in his return from Tommy John surgery, pitching six innings and hitting a homer Thursday to help the Miami Marlins rally past the San Francisco Giants 5-4 and complete a three-game sweep. The first two batters to face Fernandez scored, and he screamed at himself as he walked off the mound to end the first inning. After that, Fernandez found the form that made him the 2013 NL Rookie of the Year. Pitching for the first time since May 9, 2014, he went six innings and…

    The wait if finally over. Matt Cain is back in uniform and is ready to contribute. Today’s game just ended and Cain didn’t do so well. But what can you expect from a pitcher who hasn’t pitched in what seems like ages. He was once the best pitcher on the Giants’ staff and will look to continue that role, however, with Bumgarner taking over that title there’s a little less pressure on Cain to be the ace. If he does well the next few starts and stays healthy this came at the perfect time. This enables the Giants front office to look for other improvements at the…

    MIAMI (AP) – Matt Cain’s season debut Thursday came without the hype or souvenir masks accompanying the return of his counterpart, Jose Fernandez. But for the San Francisco Giants, Cain’s comeback provided a welcome boost, even in defeat. The three-time All-Star allowed five runs in five innings and lost 5-4 to Fernandez and the Miami Marlins, who completed a three-game sweep. Cain, sidelined last July by an elbow injury that required surgery, threw 89 pitches and was encouraged by his outing. “It was probably one of the better days I’ve had feeling-wise, which…

A baseball savant, he sat idly by in the Central Catholic dugout as sometimes things unraveled from within. He was athletically ineligible due to the move from McCutcheon. As a senior, Kiracofe had one season to perform in a Knights uniform and thought to himself, “What can I offer this program that is really needs?” Never one to mince words, Kiracofe became a leader, a voice of reason welcomed…

  • Is Jim Tomsula of the 49ers really the least powerful head coach in the league?

    2 Jul 2015 | 2:27 pm
    The San Francisco 49ers are starting to look like the Rodney Dangerfield of the NFL: nobody is giving them any respect. Not only has no 49ers player appeared on the NFL Network’s Top 100 list so far, but NFL.com is ranking Jim Tomsula dead last in their latest head coach power rankings. Here’s what Elliot Harrison wrote on Tomsula: “Tomsula is our caboose, mostly because he inherited the worst situation. It’s not like the 49ers are devoid of talent, but this has been an offseason of turmoil. Unlike the other rookie head coaches, Tomsula is following a guy in Jim Harbaugh who…

    July 4th is right around the corner, marking the last major holiday in the US before training camp. If it seems at this point that I’m marking every milestone I can until the offseason is finished then you are correct.  Football is the greatest sport in the world, but it also has the longest offseason. Fans of the San Francisco 49ers are in the most anxious group of teams: those that are talented, but unsure of how they’ll turn out. The ceiling and floor of such teams is wide.  Teams like the Bills, Dolphins, Texans, Saints, and Lions find themselves daring to dream of a deep…

Despite the fact that the offseason seems interminable, we’ll have a steady stream of actual football starting in a little over three weeks.  Training camps across the NFL are great drama if you know what to watch for. For established starters, training camp is little more than practice, but for rookies, both undrafted and drafted alike, and backups training camp is more accurately described as a month long tryout.  You get a handful of padded practices and…

    TweetHere you go, from yesterday: And here come the umbrage-takers: It’s still going on, the umbrage-taking, even a day later, even after a modified Tweet from Zagat what used Our Full Name, all 13 characters. I know that saying “San Fran” is risible to some hot-headed residents of Frisco, but I don’t know _why_. (Like “foodie” is offensive to some as it’s diminutive, right? It’s crazy to worked up about such matters, but at least I get that one.) Someday, somebody will explain it to me… Nickname(s): The City by the Bay; Fog City; San…

  • 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…

    You May Be From Yerington In the 50’s-70’s If…. (Part Three)  ...You thought it was fun to watch grocery trucks unload or hair cuts.  Mac the barber cut “Baby Face Nelson’s hair” right in that very chair. (CB) & (MB)  ---You hung out at John’s Cafe hoping a friend with a car would let you drag Main with them.

(CB)… You remember hearing the “dart” trucks from the…

    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 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.
