Sabean Speaks But Says Little- Don’t Expect Giants to Rebound Second Half Amidst Management Failures

     MISMANAGEMENT MAY DOOM SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS  FOR YEARS   Former (and some say still current  ‘co’-general manager of the San Francisco Giants), Brian Sabean  spoke in a rare interview July 11 (with Andrew Baggerly, Alameda Newspaper Group)    about how dreadful the team has been playing the last two half seasons in a row. Perhaps because the team had the best record in baseball the first half season last year, Sabean is still one of the believers that the Giants players are too good not to  bounce back the second half of 2017.       Only problem is that times have changed and the Giants haven’t . And THAT’S THE PROBLEM! .  Yes,...

How Do Lackluster SF Giants Keep Winning in Post-Season with Bumgarner ‘One Man Wrecking Crew’ ? #Steroids

How Is Bumgarner ‘One Man Wrecking Crew’ Enough for Lackluster Giants To Keep Winning In Post-Season #steroids          ‘He (Madison Bumgarner)  has now pitched in eight postseason road games. The Giants have won all eight of them. He has worked 53⅔ innings in those eight games. The opposition has scored a total of three earned runs.

Are #SFGiants / Any Team Really ‘Designed’ for Post-Season? Is Bumgarner All-Time Greatest? #Cheat Sheet

Is Bumgarner All-Time Greatest or Something Else Going On As Giants Do Their  Post-Season Thing? #SFGiants #Cheat   Nobody has ever done what Madison Bumgarner has done in the history of baseball.  He has the lowest post-season  road ERA (0.6) of anybody and he hasn’t lost a game in seven tries.  His home record isn’t much different, too.  And, it’s come consistently in the Giants World Series years of 2010, 12 and 14.  In 2014, Bumgarner was literally a one man wrecking crew  during the post-season, not only starting but relieving – and hitting – while racking up unheard-of number of  innings.

Steroid Era Back in Full Swing? Late Season Hitting, Pitching Numbers Up #PEDs #Steroids

Thought it was bad in 2015?    STEROID ERA BACK IN FULL SWING? BOTH HITTING and PITCHING NUMBERS UP #PEDs #Steroids Ever notice how one day a team will get 20 hits and the next day three for no apparent reason (eg comparable opposing pitchers, same line-up, etc)?  It’s called increased drug testing and a team  with rampant PED use will suddenly go off the PEDs when drug testing is announced, thus the lower numbers. That’s why we’re seeing this, especially with teams with known wide-spread drug use like the #SFGiants, in our researched  opinion .(SEE http://buff.ly/29OS82a)  Yet, many ‘dumber’  players are still using – and more are getting caught what with over 10...

Should Barry Bonds Be Given A Statue? Perry ‘Spitballs’ Were ‘Kids Play’ #PEDs

    DOES BARRY BONDS WARRANT A STATUE?  Voice Your Choice #PEDs #Steroids          The San Francisco Giants have honored their top players of the past with statues, most recently giving one to pitcher Gaylord Perry (August 13) of the 1960s-70s teams. In answering the question ‘Should Bonds Have A Statue?’  much is determined by one’s own feelings with regard to Performance Enhancing Drugs.   Before Barry Bonds came to the Giants in 1997 he was a ‘mere’ .275 hitter averaging  25 homers a year with Pittsburg during his mid-20s -lower combined averages than any Hall of Famers.  Of course we know what happened  when Bonds and  BALCO  burst upon the scene  in San...

BILLY BEANE ENIGMA – Who Is He and Can the A’s Ever Win It All With Him?

Billy Bean vs. Brian Sabean – Longest and formerly longest tenured GMs and Bay Area rivals  never made a trade with each other, but Beane made up for it on his own    NOW GONE IS JOSH DONALDSON and his 40 homers and .300 average  this year in Toronto. GONE IS YEONNIS CESPEDES and his 30 homers in New York. Imagine still having those two on the A’s along with Zobrist and Kazmir and maybe even Jon Lester. It’s crazy that Beane is so good at acquiring these players (the Giants could never get) but then turns around and trades them away! It can’t be all about money. Beane is a total paradox, an ego-centric...
