    Obviously it's been a bit of an up-and-down first few weeks of the 2015 season for the San Francisco Giants, but they were able to get back on track last week vs. the Dodgers at AT&T Park with a much needed 3-game sweep. They now get LA for another three, this time in Southern California, and their hoping for similar results as they climb their way back towards .500.Another Big Start for 55With the rain-out in Sunday's rubber match in Colorado, it pushed Tim Lincecum's start back a night, which I think is a big deal. Not only did Timmy avoid throwing in the light air in Denver where he's…
  • Giants still searching for clutch hits

    14 Apr 2015 | 12:50 am
    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…

  • Second man who beat Bryan Stow gets federal time

    22 May 2015 | 12:01 pm
    LOS ANGELES (KRON) – A second man has been sentenced to federal prison in connection to a brutal beating of a San Francisco Giants fan outside of Dodger Stadium in 2011. Marvin Norwood was sentenced Thursday to 2 ½ years in federal prison for weapons possession. Due to time served, he will be released next year. The firearms case came after police investigated the opening day attack of Bryan Stow, who was left with permanent brain damage. Police found weapons and ammunition belonging to Louie Sanchez at Norwood’s Rialto home. Norwood was transferred to federal custody in 2014…

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Madison Bumgarner homered off Clayton Kershaw and once again outpitched the reigning NL MVP and Cy Young winner, too, as the San Francisco Giants shut out the Los Angeles Dodgers for the third straight day, 4-0 Thursday. San Francisco outscored the Dodgers 10-0 in sweeping the three-game series. The champion Giants have won six in a row overall. This was the third time this season that Bumgarner, the current World Series MVP, had started against Kershaw — the Giants have won all three. Bumgarner (5-2) worked around seven hits and two walks in 6 1-3 innings, striking…

    No, I’m not talking about relationships.  I took some quiet time last night after the kids and Spouse went to bed. Yesterday was kind of a rough day and I needed some mindless television to go with my glass of Zin. I was channel-surfing when I came across the movie Field of Dreams. Good golly, how I love that movie.  I watched the last twenty minutes, tears rolling down my face. It took me back to when I first fell in love with baseball. My brother K played Little League. He’s almost four years older than me. I can’t tell you how many Saturdays we spent at the ball fields.

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – The Los Angeles Dodgers have scored three runs in Clayton Kershaw‘s three starts against the San Francisco Giants this season. They’ve scored 31 in his other six starts. Madison Bumgarner homered off Kershaw and once again outpitched the reigning NL MVP and Cy Young winner, as the Giants shut out the Dodgers for the third straight day, 4-0 Thursday.

    NFL lineman Ray McDonald has been arrested for the second time this week. The Santa Clara Police Department said the former San Francisco 49ers defensive end was arrested Wednesday for violating a restraining order by being at a residence in Santa Clara. The restraining order was issued after a domestic violence incident Monday in Santa Clara in which the 6-foot-3, 290-pound McDonald allegedly broke down a bedroom door to get to his former fiancee and their infant.

    (Reuters) - Former Chicago Bears defensive tackle Ray McDonald, released by the National Football League (NFL) franchise after his arrest this week in Northern California, was arrested again on Wednesday on suspicion of violating a restraining order, police said. The 30-year-old McDonald, who has been involved in a string of domestic assault incidents, was arrested on Monday in Santa Clara for physically assaulting a woman "while she was holding a baby," according to Santa Clara police. In Wednesday's incident, Santa Clara police learned McDonald violated a restraining order - issued as a…

    Chicago Bears chairman George McCaskey said Wednesday he has repeatedly second-guessed his decision to approve the Ray McDonald signing and asked himself what he could have done differently. McDonald was released by the team Monday following a domestic violence arrest for an incident in Santa Clara, California, in which he allegedly broke down a bedroom door to get to his ex-fiancee and their infant. McCaskey, speaking earlier in the day, said he thought the Bears were thorough before signing the defensive end to a one-year deal in March and had the safeguards in place to make the move work.

    Yardbarker: San Francisco 49ers

  • Is management ruining the San Francisco 49ers?

    29 May 2015 | 2:34 pm
    The 49ers did well during Jim Harbaugh’s tenure as head coach until a rift with management, specifically with Trent Baalke, eventually led to his departure. The 2014-15 season for the San Francisco 49ers did not live up to the standard that had been set under Jim Harbaugh during his first three seasons. Swirling rumors from inside the organization conveyed a rift between Jim Harbaugh and management, specifically general manager Trent Baalke and owner Jed York. Harbaugh’s abrasive and intense style of coaching often played out off the field, which may have rubbed people the wrong way.
  • Vernon Davis absolutely must step up for the San Francisco 49ers in 2015

    28 May 2015 | 9:16 am
    It’s a big year for the San Francisco 49ers and a lot of their players. They have a new coach looking to prove himself, a quarterback looking to step up and a totally revamped defense. Perhaps the most overlooked of all these elements though is the tight end Vernon Davis. Davis is in a contract year and it could not be a bigger time to step up for him. At age 31, it’s now or never. I remember when Vernon Davis came into the league. Drafted number six overall by the 49ers expectations could not have been higher for Davis. Following a stellar career at Maryland, Davis knocked it out of the…

    Ray McDonald has been arrested yet again. No, seriously. Just two days after getting arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman who was holding a baby, the former San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears defensive end was arrested on Wednesday after allegedly violating a restraining order, per Katie Nelson of the San Jose Mercury News. The restraining order was issued following Monday’s arrest and required McDonald to stay away from the residence of his ex-fiancée. This is McDonald’s fifth arrest since 2010 and his fourth arrest in nine months. Chicago took a chance on him two months ago…
  • 49ers veteran safeties helping out rookie Jaquiski Tartt

    27 May 2015 | 5:03 pm
    San Francisco 49ers second-round draft pick Jaquiski Tartt has a few people looking out for him as he begins his NFL career.  Safety Jimmie Ward is from the same town in Alabama as Tartt and gave the rookie some valuable advice before OTAs began.  "Really, it was just get in the playbook," said Tartt, via the 49ers official website. "That's the only thing that could keep me behind - that's the playbook." Tartt is leaning a lot from Ward as well as free safety Antoine Bethea. What is standing out to Tartt is the professionalism both players exude. "When they walk into the meeting room, you…
  • The 49ers did their homework before signing WR Jerome Simpson

    27 May 2015 | 4:49 pm
    When the San Francisco 49ers signed wide receiver Jerome Simpson this offseason, it was met with a lot of skepticism because of his troubled past. The 49ers made sure to gather all the facts about his character before deciding to pull the trigger. Head coach Jim Tomsula placed a call to Simpson's college coach at Coastal Carolina, David Bennett.  Simpson has been arrested three times since 2012. When Bennett talked to the San Francisco Chronicle about his conversation with Tomsula, he offered an encouraging outlook for the wide receiver. “I said ‘It’s y’all’s call as an…
