Nate Schierholtz

  1. Giants probably not a playoff team without Melky Cabrera

    Aug 15, 2012, 3:14 PM EDT

    Melky Cabrera

    With Melky Cabrera done for at least the rest of the regular season after testing positive for enhanced testosterone levels, the Giants may well fall short of the playoffs this year. Though perhaps that’s for the best, given that the cheater is a big reason they’re tied for the NL West lead at the moment. Cabrera…

  2. Nate Schierholtz broke his toe

    Aug 13, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

    Nate Schierholtz

    The Phillies have placed Nate Schierholtz on the DL with a fractured toe. There’s no timetable for his return, but it’s not like there’s any urgency in Philly at the moment. Schierholtz has seven hits in 32 at-bats with a homer, a double and two RBIs since coming over from the Giants.  Hector Luna has been…

  3. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Rangers 11, Angels 10: Holy schnikes! The Angels jumped out to a 6-0 lead and the fans were booing Yu Darvish and the local nine. Then the comeback. Make that the comebacks. Four runs in the fifth and then single runs in the eighth and ninth to force extras. Then, down by three in the…

  4. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Rangers celebrate

    One person’s thoughts on who made out best and worst at the trade deadline. Winners Texas Rangers: GM Jon Daniels wasn’t interested in parting with third baseman Mike Olt, much less shortstop Jurickson Profar, in order to counter the Angels’ Zack Greinke pickup, but he was able to keep his best prospects and land Ryan…

  5. HBT’s Trade Deadline Tracker

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:35 PM EDT

    Lets make a deal

    The 2012 non-waiver trade deadline has come and gone. Here’s your summary of who went where and for whom: 7/31/12: The Indians Acquire 1B Lars Anderson from the Red Sox for RHP Steven Wright. Quick Take: Anderson is a once-promising slugger who has seemingly run out of gas on his third time through Triple-A. Wright…

  6. Phillies rebuild not off to a smashing start

    Jul 31, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Ruben Amaro, Charlie Manuel

    Phillies GM Ruben Amaro was burnt the first time he ever had to sell, giving Cliff Lee away to the Mariners for three modest prospects, none of whom have made any sort of contribution so far, after the 2009 season. Take two isn’t looking like a big success either, as he doesn’t appear to have…

  7. Hunter Pence traded to the Giants

    Jul 31, 2012, 12:29 PM EDT

    Hunter Pence

    UPDATE: Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com reports that the deal is done and about to be announced. 1:32 PM: Heyman reports that Nate Schierholtz is in the deal too. That at least gives the Phillies and outfielder. Heyman likewise says that a pitcher could be going to Philly, making this a 3-for-1 deal. UPDATE:  The pitcher…

  8. Nate Schierholtz may or may not have demanded a trade

    Jul 31, 2012, 9:12 AM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Conflicting reports about Giants outfielder Nate Schierholtz. Jon Heyman reported that he formally requested a trade. He tells Andrew Baggarly, however, that’s not so: “I haven’t said one thing about anything other than baseball in two weeks,” said Schierholtz, who told the San Francisco Chronicle earlier this month that he would be open to a change of…

  9. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Dark Knight Rises

    Pardon me if I seem discombobulated, but I’m suffering from weekend movie whiplash. On Friday night I saw “The Dark Knight Rises.” Yesterday I saw “Safety Not Guaranteed.” If you can find me two movies out right now that are more dissimilar in terms of tone, themes, budget and every other single other relevant measure,…

  10. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 18, 2012, 6:08 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Boston Red Sox

    Rangers 18, Red Sox 3: The Rangers were definitely physically and emotionally into this game. In fact, they did a Gashouse Gorillas-style conga line around the basepaths. Josh Hamilton drove in five, Mike Napoli drove in four. Rockies 5, Padres 3:  Jamie Moyer wins and thus becomes the oldest pitcher to ever win a game.…

  11. Brandon Belt on Giants’ bench for fourth straight game

    Apr 13, 2012, 1:18 PM EDT

    Brandon Belt

    Apparently the Giants’ commitment to Brandon Belt as a regular lasted all of three games. He went 1-for-10 with five strikeouts and has been on the bench for each of the past four games, including this afternoon’s matchup against the Pirates despite right-hander James McDonald being on the mound. In fact, three of the four…

  12. Springtime Storylines: Are the San Francisco Giants going to give Brandon Belt a chance?

    Mar 29, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Brandon Belt

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2012 season. Up next: the San Francisco Giants The Big Question: Are they going to give Brandon Belt a chance? One would think that a…

  13. Taking the Belt to Bruce Bochy

    Mar 20, 2012, 8:40 PM EDT

    Brandon Belt

    CSN Bay Area’s Andrew Baggarly thinks the lineup the Giants used today is the one Bruce Bochy will go with on Opening Day as well. Which should please fans of the other NL West teams. CF Angel Pagan LF Melky Cabrera 3B Pablo Sandoval C Buster Posey 1B Aubrey Huff RF Nate Schierholtz 2B Ryan…

  14. Hector Sanchez adds two more homers in bid to make Giants

    Mar 12, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Hector Sanchez

    No catcher has played in 100 major league games in his age-22 season since Brian McCann in 2006. Hector Sanchez probably won’t be the next — actually, Kansas City’s Salvador Perez figures to pull off the feat if he stays healthy this season — but he is bidding to make the Giants as a backup…

  15. Running down the rosters: San Francisco Giants

    Feb 16, 2012, 11:47 PM EDT

    Tim Lincecum, Buster Posey

    Coming off a disappointing 86-76 finish in 2011, the Giants’ big moves this winter were a pair of underwhelming trades: Jonathan Sanchez for Melky Cabrera and Andres Torres plus Ramon Ramirez for Angel Pagan. To say the least, they didn’t make the kind of splash their fans were hoping for (but have come not to…
