It became a meme on Twitter and beyond last summer, when the defending World Series champions took one gut shot after another and everyone in the Giants clubhouse wondered whether the most recent loss would represent #Rockbottom.

Mike Napoli stole home. Though, really, we should call what he did something else. Also: are we at “Peak Brandon” in Major League Baseball?

What a fun, relaxing weekend. Not just for all of us who watched races and sipped julep. It was relaxing for Carlos Beltran too.

The other owners will have to ratify the move at their next meeting, but as of yesterday it’s all but official: the Braves now own the Nationals.

Maybe he’s helped, maybe not. But the Giants do seem to be mainstreaming the guy who was once baseball’s biggest villain.

Barry Bonds is back in a Giants uniform as a spring training instructor and Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com writes that “his every word was met with rapt attention” from players. For instance, outfielder Michael Morse got some tutoring on his swing and afterward told Baggarly: Oh my gosh, are you kidding me? The guy’s amazing.…

TOP OF THE NINTH: Bailey made a nice play on a high-bouncing comebacker from the Giants’ No. 8 hitter, Brandon Crawford, to get the first out in the ninth and struck out pinch-hitter Tony Abreu with a 97 mph fastball for the second out. Gregor Blanco, who drew the walk in the seventh inning to break…

Wil Myers hit his first major league home run in impressive fashion this afternoon against the Yankees, as he took left-hander CC Sabathia deep for a go-ahead grand slam in the top of the sixth inning at Yankee Stadium. You can watch it right here. It was an opposite-field homer for Myers, which was encouraging…

Yadier Molina and Buster Posey are neck-and-neck tatto. David Wright is getting help from the cougars! Did Domonoic Brown do something awful to the pets of every All-Star voter? Confused? You won’t be, after this week’s episode of … “SOAP!” Er, sorry. After this week’s NL All-Star voting update: FIRST BASE Joey Votto, Reds 2,047,945…

On a day of odd baseball, the Giants take home the first place prize as they defeated the Rockies 6-5 on a walk-off, one-out, two-run home run by Angel Pagan. The Rockies had taken a 5-4 lead on a Troy Tulowitzki solo homer to left field off of Giants closer Sergio Romo in the top…

Mets 7, Dodgers 3: Jordany Valdespin with a walkoff grand slam. See, good things happen when he doesn’t try to bunt. Reds 1, Cubs 0: Mat Latos tossed seven shutout innings and Broxton and Chapman finished it off. Tough luck for Jeff Samardzija who struck out eight in six innings, but he’s gonna have to get used…

Reds 1, Phillies 0: CONTINUED FROM TUESDAY NIGHT: Nine minutes, a quick score and then the whole thing was over. About as good a night as you coulda hoped for when you were 17, but for the Phillies this had to be disappointing. Reds 11, Phillies 2: Well, maybe not as disappointing as this. The…

Yankees 14, Indians 1: “Man, where are the Yankees going to get any offense with all of their big hitters on the DL?” no one is asking today like they asked so much last week. I guess nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got somethin to say, but nothin’ comes out when they move their…

We mentioned this last week, but last night the inaugural Wilson Defensive Awards were announced on MLB Network. As we said previously: sponsored awards like this are kind of “whatever,” but in a world where people still take the Gold Glove awards seriously, I’m cool with any viable competitor. As you’ll recall, there were awards for the…

Gold Glove Awards were announced last night. I didn’t see them when they came out because I was doing important things like watching “Serenity” for the tenth time. Shiny. Look, I’m not going to pretend that I have any way to measure defense that is any better than what anyone else has. Quite worse, in…

The Giants are just three outs away from a sweep of the Tigers in the 2012 World Series. Marco Scutaro punched a two-out single off Phil Coke in the top of the tenth inning to give the Giants a 4-3 lead. Ryan Theriot led off the tenth with a single to shallow center field before…
