Joe Kelly gave his old mates fits. Well, maybe he gave them fits before too. Maybe they weren’t his mates. Maybe there were long-simmering disputes between him and the Cardinals about politics and religion and things. We can’t know!

Don’t look now, but the Angels are only a game back of the A’s in the AL West. And, thus, a game away from having the best record in baseball.

Dude, the sign said “beware of flying objects leaving the playing field.” So really, it’s your fault.

All’s quiet on the Pablo Sandoval contract extension front.
May 30, 2014, 6:48 AM EDT
A gem from Josh Collmenter, an ugly dud from the Braves and a horrible, horrible bit of stream of consciousness from me about what would happen if the season ended today.

Pablo Sandoval is still seeking a nine figure contract despite his slow start to the season. Is he worth it?
Apr 17, 2014, 6:06 AM EDT
Lots of shutouts yesterday. Including one that was the Platonic Ideal of a baseball game. At least if you have taste and stuff.

The Giants have tabled extension talks with third baseman Pablo Sandoval, who is scheduled to become a free agent five days after the conclusion of the 2014 World Series.

Earlier, we learned that the Giants and third baseman Pablo Sandoval haven’t made any progress on a contract extension. It appears Sandoval wants a deal similar to Hunter Pence‘s five years and $90 million, which was struck last September.

CSN Bay Area’s Andrew Baggarly reports that Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval came up lame running out a grounder in the eighth inning of a Venezuelan Winter League game last night.

As with Prince Fielder, I’m inclined to wait for something more than mere weight loss to declare a Best Shape of His Life. It requires the weight loss along with some declaration — implied or explicit — that superior performance is soon to follow. Or a suggestion that the shape is unprecedented or something. Sure,…

There’s baseball going on down in Venezuela. And Pablo Sandoval — who is on his second tour of Best Shape of His Life Status — is picking it at third base. Check this out: He’s been rather cagey about how much weight he’s lost, but I cant’ remember seeing the Panda make that kind of…
