  • A Man Candy Moment: SF Giants Edition

    18 Oct 2014 | 12:00 pm
    With the Giants headed to the World Series, all the chatter in the media is about Brandon Belt’s homers, Brandon Crawford’s extraordinary plays at short stop, the speed of Tim Lincecum’s fastball – and other such jockish preoccupations. What no one in the media mentions, except in random unguarded moments, is the fact that they, as a team, are ridiculously, torridly, HOT. If there were a category in standings for number of ogles per game, they’d lead the majors. Among my straight female and gay male friends, the talk during and after games is decidedly less about stats and more…

    As Indian summer fades into the San Franciscso sunset, the cooler weather prompts us to reach for warmer gear and warming beers. We find ourselves bypassing the lighter, summer beer styles and stocking up on Harvest or Fall brews: maltier ales with a tad more alcohol and a bit of spice. And while pumpkin beers generally fall into this category - Almanac Beer Co. and 21st Amendment Brewery offer excellent local choices - we thought we would explore some squash-free beers that both celebrate and pair well with Autumn.

  • Playoff Pinch Hits: James Shields-Wil Myers Trade A Success For Royals

    By Sam McPherson In December 2012, Kansas City Royals General Manager Dayton Moore made one of the biggest trades in recent memory, acquiring Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher James Shields in exchange for four minor-league players. At the time, the Royals hadn’t had a winning season since 2003, and even that one season was the team’s only winning season since 1993. This was a franchise in despair, so to speak. So why were the Royals acquiring “Big Game” James? Certainly, there were no big games in Kansas City’s future. Giving up Wil Myers in the deal also was a…

They're the top team in the NL Wild Card race and moved to within a game of the NL West-leading Dodgers with Friday night's victory. With a soft schedule and an improving squad, they look primed for a strong finish. Last post, we talked about the steadiness of the offense, and how they've really done a complete 180 since the emergence of Joe Panik in that two hole and Andrew Susac as Posey's backup.

Then all the sudden they found themselves in the need of a catcher after concussion issues with multiple players opened a major void behind the plate and Buster Posey.Enter Joe Panik and Andrew Susac.

Nevertheless, after they've failed to turnaround a miserable end to the first half, they're still very much alive in the playoff race and have plenty of baseball left.First of all, if they're going to get things back on track, they have to start taking advantage of the soft schedule they have coming up. They wound up splitting the mini two-game set with Chicago, but now is the chance to really get going. Their next 6 games are against the…

    The merits of Barry Zito's seven-year tenure with the Giants have been debated ad nauseam, but he deserves an assist for the contributions the team has received from Tim Hudson this season.
  • Casilla's cool demeanor belies competitive fire within

    Chris Haft
    19 Oct 2014 | 4:52 pm
    Santiago Casilla keeps his emotions mainly to himself, unlike a large percentage of his counterparts, who favor gesticulations, primal screams or both when they're on the mound. "I am emotional, but I try to keep that inside," Casilla said. "It depends on how I feel. I'm not going to show it just so people can see it, but I really am amped up."

    By Sam McPherson Depending on your point of view, the 2014 World Series matchup between the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants is either everything you wanted — or nothing like you imagined. If the latter fits, you’re certainly not alone. Independent statistical analysis based on Wins Above Average shows the Royals were just the sixth-best team in the American League this year, while the Giants were the fourth-best National League team.

    16 Oct 2014 | 4:35 pm
    The Detroit Lions defense – ranked No. 1 in the nation – delivered the goods on Sunday, holding the Minnesota Vikings scoreless until the very closing moments of the fourth quarter. How good were they? Eight sacks, three interceptions, one fumble recovery, and this tribute from Vikings coach Mike Zimmer, “They kicked butt.” “Give credit to Detroit,” Zimmer continued, “they did a good job.” Quarterback Matthew Stafford completed 19 of 33 passes for 185 yards. Golden Tate, Theo Riddick, and Joique Bell added their contributions to the offense…

    Week 7 is upon us. We are just about halfway through the season and while it may be too early to start talking “playoffs,” many teams are looking like they could be playoff contenders. We kick off the week Thursday with the New York Jets taking on the New England Patriots. This is the first time Patriots CB Darrelle Revis will face his old team for the first time in a Patriots uniform. After a slow start to the season, the Patriots have won two straight. The Jets, on the other hand, have lost 5 in a row for the first time since 2007. Being division rivals, both teams know how…

Here’s what else is on tap for week seven: BYES: Philadelphia Eagles, Tampa Bay Buccaneers  -Jets (1-5) at Patriots (4-2), Thursday @ 8:25 PM EST The Jets come into this matchup off their loss to Peyton Manning and the Broncos.

  • 49ers Don’t Show up in Denver

    19 Oct 2014 | 8:25 pm
    The 49ers dropped their third game of the season and gave up four touchdown passes to Peyton Manning, who now holds the record for career touchdown passes. Anyway it was an ugly game. The 49ers had some chances but just couldn’t take advantage of it. Dropped passes and not being able to stop Manning killed them. I’m not gonna spend to much time talking about the game, mainly cause I’m not pleased. It is always tough to go against Peyton Manning and when you don’t have Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman or Aldon Smith in the game, it’s not gonna be easy. The 49ers head into their by week…

    18 Oct 2014 | 11:19 am
    The San Francisco 49ers will try to win their fourth straight game as face the Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football.  The Niners undoubtedly face their biggest game this season as Manning will try to break Brett Favre’s single season touchdown record in front of his home crowd.  Although the Broncos come in as favorites, since 2011, the 49ers have a 19-8 road record which is tops in the league.  This along with the much improved offense should make for a close game in Denver.  Here are some of the keys to the game. The Replacements With Patrick Willis out with…
  • San Francisco 49ers can run away with NFC West

    17 Oct 2014 | 5:38 pm
    The San Francisco 49ers had an ugly 1-2 start, but they’ve won three straight games and find themselves at 4-2. Colin Kaepernick is leading the charge, with six touchdowns and one interception during the winning streak. He passed for a season-high 343 yards in Monday Night’s 31-17 win over the St. Louis Rams. With the Seattle Seahawks losing at home to the Dallas Cowboys, the 49ers now have a better record (Seahawks are 3-2.) All due respect to the Arizona Cardinals, but their hot start isn’t here to last. They simply aren’t as consistent and reliable the way Seattle and San Fran…

    TweetI’ve already made this post, but I’ve just come across the route map for 2014′s Nike Women’s Half Marathon, and if this tiny blog can prevent just one unnecessary tow-job this weekend, well that’s blogesse oblige, mon frere. If I were Nike, of Beaverton, Oregon, I’d refund the $500-$1000 tow fees that a bunch of San Franciscans are going to be getting come Sunday morning, on a case-by-case basis. If I were Nike… All the deets on street closures: Nike Women’s Marathon On Sunday:  The 11th annual Nike Women’s Marathon will be held…

    Actress Elle Fanning arrives at the Mill Valley Film Festival for the screening of ‘Low Down’. The results are in. And for organizers of the 37th edition of the Mill Valley Film Festival they’re of the record-breaking variety. (For Stark Insider video highlights from MVFF37 see below.) Actors Elle Fanning (Low Down) , Hilary Swank (The Homesman), Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything), and Kristin Davis (Gardeners of Eden) and directors Jason Reitman (Men, Women & Children), Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan), and Frank Whaley (Like Sunday, Like Rain starring Green…
  • Die Mommie Die!

    Who needs the conventional when you have San Francisco? Those reluctant to sit through just another play or yet another musical ought to dial up New Conservatory Theatre Center. My first visit to the space (home to two theaters in a gorgeous building at 25 Van Ness) was nothing short of memorable. Can you believe they did that? Said that? Flaunted that (with utmost zeal)? Die Mommie Die!, written by Charles Busch and first brought to the stage in 2007, is tailor made for this city. A satirical send-up to the divas of Hollywood’s golden era, it oozes camp, sexuality, and outrageousness.
  • London’s Calling: ‘Sweeney Todd’ (Review)

    The Judge (Lee Strawn) gets a close shave from Sweeney Todd (David Studwell) in Stephen Sondheim’s masterpiece SWEENEY TODD playing at TheatreWorks. If Joel Grey were around, I might hear him leer: “Even the orchestra is beautiful.” However, with regard to the new TheatreWorks production of Sweeney Todd, the line bears rephrasing. “Especially the orchestra is beautiful.” Under the baton of William Liberatore, bassoon and clarinet wind their smoky way into every crack and crevice of these 1940 London streets, elevating every aspect of this excellent production. Producing this…

    All you have to do is glance around at most classical concerts to appreciate the aging of the audience. The situation is somewhat better in San Francisco and Berkeley than down the Peninsula, where my informal head count at a recent Ives Quartet salon produced a 15:1 ratio of grey-to-not-grey hair. I’m hardly the first to point this out: no one’s replacing this generation of concertgoers. Fortunately, the situation doesn’t extend quite so much to opera (at least locally), and it’s not entirely universal (a musician friend regularly expounds “thank God for China”), but we hardly…
  • A look at the rag trade… by the Ives Quartet

    Rags occupy an uneasy seat in American music, wedged as they are between classical and popular. Indeed, if it weren’t for off-the-chart sales of Joshua’s Rifkin’s 1970 two-record set of Scott Joplin rags, followed by the 1974 movie “The Sting,” most of us might be entirely oblivious. However, Rifkin and “The Sting” are far from the whole story about rags – or even about Scott Joplin. The Ives Quartet and musicologist Derrick Katz provided a far more enlightening picture at their most recent Palo Alto Salon. I was surprised to learn that the IQ were devoting an entire event to…
