    With a little over a month now until pitchers and catchers file into Scottsdale, the Giants reported that Tim Hudson will undergo surgery to remove bone spurs from his right heel. He is expected to be out at least 8 weeks but the Giants are expecting him back in time to start the season.Anyhow, it has sort of enhanced their search for rotation depth again. I mean with Huddy pushing 40 and the workload his small frame has endured the last 16 seasons, it's probably not a bad idea to look into adding some rotation depth. This guy was pitching for the A's when the Giants were still playing at…
  • Remaining options for Giants' roster

    1 Jan 2015 | 9:11 pm
    January 2015 is here and that means we're only about 6 weeks away from pitchers and catchers reporting to Scottsdale and the Giants begin their quest to repeat but they still have some work to do before then.After the re-signing of Jake Peavy and the trade for Casey McGehee, the Giants may have put a wrap on their offseason. However, they remain linked to James Shields and continue to scour the market, mainly via trade, for a possible solution in left field.The Giants obviously still have some money set aside that they were intending on giving to either Pablo Sandoval and/or Jon Lester, but…
  • Giants' new projected 25-man roster

    20 Dec 2014 | 12:14 am
    Finally, on December 19th, the Giants have found their third basemen for the 2015 season. It wasn't a big deal like for David Freese, Pedro Alvarez or Ben Zobrist. Not even a Trevor Plouffe or Lonnie Chisenhall, who would have been at least interesting in a new league.Instead, the Giants sent low-level minor league arms Kendry Flores and Luis Castillo to Miami for Casey McGehee. The 32 year-old third basemen hit .287 with 4 HR, 76 RBI and a .712 OPS in 2014, which won him NL Comeback Player of the Year honors. That's a higher average than Pablo Sandoval provided last year, but a huge fall-off…

    The offseason seems to really be heating up and despite all the action that's gone on over the last couple of weeks, one of the biggest markets in baseball and the reigning World Series champs have been one of the last to get going.They did make their first notable moves of the offseason this week though, bringing back one of the most important components to their bullpen in Sergio Romo, and the guy they traded for last July, Jake Peavy. They re-signed Romo, to a 2 year/$15M deal. Romo is coming off a bit of a down year, as he started out strong in the closers role, but relinquished the gig…

Sure, (arguably) the greatest coach in NFL history sports a Patriots logo on his sleeveless sweatshirt, and (arguably) the best quarterback of all-time dons a Flying Elvis on his helmet, but every other God-fearing football fan across this great nation has yet to bow at the altar of Bob Kraft, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.

Mangini spent one year as the New England Patriots [2005] and it was a rocky one at that.

    Americans who live abroad — more than six million of us worldwide (not counting those who work for the U.S. government) — often face hard questions about our country from people we live among. Europeans, Asians, and Africans ask us to explain everything that baffles them about the increasingly odd and troubling conduct of the United States.  […]

     Martin Luther King. Jr.’s birthday holiday is past us. Black History month is approaching, perhaps it is time for a bit of reflection. Black Lives Matter but what can I, one person, do to make that known? What did I do today that made one person feel better about themselves? Did I acknowledge with a […]

  • Berkeley Rep Named to 10 Best Theater List: Thoughts on 6 years of creative risk-taking

    ‘The Great Game: Afghanistan’ – that time I sat through a three-part, nine hour play at Berkeley Rep about Afghanistan, and … loved it. Berkeley Rep Theater has been named to the “10 Best” list on Forbes. Annie Bruce suggests that “the next time want to see some of the best theater in the country, hold off on booking a ticket to New York and instead see what might be playing closer to home…” Here, here. Others receiving accolades included the Cleveland Play House, Arena Stage (Washington, D.C.), Paper Mill Playhouse (New Jersey), Steppenwolf…
  • ‘Build’ at City Lights: A riveting look at video game developer culture and A.I. (Review)

    Max Tachis, left, and George Psarras play hotshot game developers. (Photo: Mike Ko) Hello World. Silicon Valley has its own television show (on HBO). Now it quite possibly has its own play. Build, which opened over the weekend at City Lights Theater in San Jose, hits pretty darn close to home, deftly zeroing in on this region’s most unique, quirky, and captivating elements: wealth, greed, compassion, ego, narcissism, and desire for community. Various themes, often at odds, drive this new work with fresh energy and lingering tension. Silicon Valley is at times a paradox. There’s…

    Symphony Silicon Valley plans to live sync the complete LOTR trilogy. 250 musicians and singers on stage will perform Howard Shore’s legendary score – a mere 1200 pages long. Here’s something you don’t get a chance to experience often. Symphony Silicon Valley announced that in April it (along with SSV Chorale) plans to screen all three of the Lord of the Rings films with live orchestral accompaniment. Organizers say there will be “two cycles’, each featuring a dedicated day for one part of the trilogy: Day 1 – The Fellowship of the Ring; Day 2 –…
  • ‘Tree’ and the magic of theater at San Francisco Playhouse (Review)

    26 Jan 2015 | 3:46 pm
    Cy Ashley Webbs says Tree richly delivers and that spending time at this play will bring you back a little wiser. Here’s the review of Tree, the latest production at San Francisco Playhouse. JJ Price (Tristan Cunningham) reveals long-lost letters to Didi Marcantel (Susi Damilano), changing their perceptions of the past. (Photo: Jessica Palopoli) This might be the wrong place to say it, but sometimes you shouldn’t read anything about plays. Tree is no exception. If you looked too closely at what’s written about this show, you might dismiss it as being about race and that might…

    A Super Play just in time for a Super Bowl. Cy Ashley Webb checks out X’s and O’s (A Football Love Story) at Berkeley Rep, a play that examines the traumatic effect our most famous of sports has on players and families. (l to r) Anthony Holiday (Addicott) and Eddie Ray Jackson (Anthony) perform in the world premiere of X’s and O’s (A Football Love Story), a hard-hitting docudrama at Berkeley Rep that examines our country’s passion for a game that is life-giving yet lethal. Most love stories lapse wistful – and in this respect X’s and O’s (A Football Love Story) is no…
