    CSN Bay Area’s Andrew Baggarly made an observation while hanging out in the Giants’ clubhouse here in Scottsdale the other day: I looked around the room, I realized that [Willie] Mays, and his assistant, were the only people of African-American heritage in it … Sure, there have been times when the Giants did not have a…

    The Astros aren’t the most lethal of opponents, but we caught a glimpse of vintage Tim Lincecum on Saturday night in San Francisco. And it was good. The Giants right-hander yielded just five hits over eight scoreless innings, racking up 11 strikeouts while issuing just one walk. He needed 114 pitches and his velocity declined…

    Ramon Santiago, Austin Jackson

    It was a really rough weekend for people in Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C. Storms, trees down, power outages and intense heat made it for a really crappy weekend. We were fairly lucky here at Chez Craigy. The power was out for only about 24 hours before coming back Saturday evening.…

  15. Santiago Casilla, not Sergio Romo, is the Giants’ new closer

    Apr 18, 2012, 12:16 PM EST

    San Francisco Giants v Colorado Rockies

    Sergio Romo has been one of the best, most dominant relievers in baseball while setting up Brian Wilson for the past four seasons, but with Wilson headed for elbow surgery it was Santiago Casilla, not Romo, who got the call in the ninth inning last night. Casilla did the job, saving a 4-2 win over…

    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.
