He lasted a couple innings.
He reported “tightness” in his left, throwing shoulder.
Evan Longoria’s 3-run home run in the fifth inning of Tuesday’s game vs. the Padres nearly left the stadium.
Bruce Bochy didn’t know what he was thinking.
“Then you see it,” Bumgarner said about watching himself on tape. “… And it’s like, ‘Man, what are you doing?'”
Somehow, the fifth day of Dickerson may have been craziest of all.
Bochy knows the back of the baseball card does not support the lineup spot.
The Giants’ lineup is all out of Brandons.
It has been all but cemented that Madison Bumgarner will be traded by this year’s deadline.
Immediate returns, that’s what it’s all about. On June 10, the Giants traded Single-A pitching prospect Franklin Van Gurp to the San Diego Padres for 29-year-old outfielder Alex Dickerson.
“He’s been ramped up a little.”
Now the Giants hit the road a nosedive away from a definitive message to president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi that he should sell.
There are seeing-eye singles, but it’s hard to remember a seeing-eye double like Christian Yelich’s.
It is rare that Bruce Bochy is hesitant to call upon his closer in a tight situation. Will Smith has been a rare closer this year, though.
“If I hit a ball 420 feet, I want it to be a homer.”
It goes down in the box score as Will Smith’s 18th save, but he wants there to be an asterisk.
Game 3 of the 2019 NBA Finals was one marked by everything that happened off the court.
After selecting San Mateo native Hunter Bishop with the 10th overall pick in the 2019 MLB Draft, the San Francisco Giants used their second Day 1 pick on Logan Wyatt, a first baseman from Louisville University.
Hunter Bishop has been thinking about playing for the Giants since he was a toddler; watching Barry Bonds scorch baseballs into McCovey Cove.
The last time the San Francisco Giants had the 10th overall pick in the MLB draft, it was 2007, and the team drafted Madison Bumgarner.
On Sunday, the Giants proved something that should not have needed proving. They’re at least better than the Baltimore Orioles.
