    Earlier, we learned that the Giants and third baseman Pablo Sandoval haven’t made any progress on a contract extension.

    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…

    Last night it was reported that Pablo Sandoval had lost 42 pounds. Today Sandoval said that he has not told anyone how much weight he has lost, but that he will do so when he gets to spring training. Kinda doesn’t matter what the numbers are. Get a load of this: This picture is from…

    This is Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval as he appeared last season. This is Pablo Sandoval now, courtesy of a pic he posted on twitter this afternoon. Now, the shirt is a kinda baggy.

But the dream has come to an end in Washington. According to Matt Eddy of Baseball America, the Nats officially released Maya on Saturday after getting just 16 major…

    Red Sox 20, Tigers 4: Well, that was something. Eight homers in all for the Red Sox. Two from David Ortiz, who picked up his 2,000th career hit as well.

    Pablo Sandoval won’t be having any three-homer games in the World Series this October, but he did accomplish the feat for the first time in the regular season Wednesday as the Giants crushed the Padres 13-5. Sandoval had a modest 10 homers this season before taking three relievers deep tonight. He had a two-run shot…

    1995 World Series

    Braves 2, Indians 0: Tom Glavine with eight shutout innings and David Justice with a big homer. Wait, sorry. Having flashbacks.

    On the heels of a five-game winning streak, the Nationals were three outs away from reaching the .500 mark for the first time since July 19 when Rafael Soriano took the hill with a 3-1 lead in the ninth inning this afternoon against the Giants.

    The Giants are in last place in the NL West and are playing some ugly baseball lately. Madison Bumgarner was unable to play the “we just got to play them one game at a time” game after last night’s dispiriting loss to the Brewers. First, he described a misplayed bunt thusly: “The bunt had dropped…

    Wednesday’s 8-3 loss to the Reds had to be particularly frustrating for Giants fans, considering that… – Hunter Pence went 5-for-5 and the team as a whole collected 15 hits – The team left 15 men on base, it’s high total in a nine-inning game since 2008 – Chad Gaudin, the club’s best starter of…
