THE SLIDE – A Full Overview

October 11, 2015

The Play. The Catch. For years, incredible sports moments have been immortalized, becoming fantastical memories passed down from father to son. Who could forget when Willie Mays made that incredible grab in the bowels of the Polo Grounds to keep the Indians from claiming the lead all those years ago? Or when the Cal Bears decided to play rough with the Stanford Band? Clearly, only the most incredible moments in sports history…

Nationals Dominate Early in 9-3 Win Over Giants

By: Lizzie Siegle. Follow @lizziepika// A lot of things went wrong for the Giants in their 9-3 loss to the Nationals in Washington, DC(which was, for the most part, decided in the first three batters for Washington) but the general absence of Giants’ hits did not help their case. Washington started out swinging right from the get-go in the first inning, smashing two homers, a double, and a single to…

Signing Nick Markakis Would Be a Mistake for the Giants

December 3, 2014

By: Ben Leonard The Giants, along with the Braves and the Blue Jays, are purportedly contenders for the services of veteran outfielder Nick Markakis. He had dinner on Monday night with top Braves’ officials, including manager Fredi Gonzalez. He grew up in Georgia, so the Braves may be a home-town choice for the outfielder. However, if the Giants truly have interest, they would likely be able to pay more for…

Did the A’s Lose Big With the Donaldson Trade?

December 2, 2014

By: Simon Westley On Friday, third baseman Josh Donaldson was traded away from Oakland for former Blue Jays’ third baseman Brett Lawrie and prospects Sean Nolin, Franklin Barreto, and Kendall Graveman. Donaldson has been one of the best players in baseball the past two seasons, placing 6th in the major leagues with 6.4 WAR (Fangraphs) in 2014 and only behind Mike Trout and Andrew McCutchen with 7.7 WAR the prior…

Giants Win World Series For Third Time In Five Years; Bumgarner Is MVP

By: Apurv Baichwal The Giants have been known as the Torture since 2010. They always seem to string games and series out to the very end, and they possess an uncanny ability to put themselves in the worst positions yet still win. After being shutout and completely dominated 10-0 yesterday, the Giants came back strong to win this game, and the World Series, 3-2. Simply making the World Series for…

Royals Slaughter Giants To Earn Game 7

October 28, 2014

By: Apurv Baichwal Ouch. Today’s game was bad, and there’s really not too much to be said about it. The Giants got shutout 10-0, in Game Six of the World Series. Fortunately, they were up 3-2 before today, so today’s game can simply be forgotten. Peavy had a pretty awful day by statistics, as he only lasted 1.1 innings, and he gave up five earned runs on six hits and…

Bumgarner Masterful As Giants Capitalize on Royals’ Miscues

October 26, 2014

By: Apurv Baichwal Madison Bumgarner has carried the Giants through this season, and he has been especially essential during this postseason. He has risen through the ranks of Cy Young winners Tim Lincecum, Jake Peavy, and Matt Cain to feature himself as the ace of the rotation. He is only 25 years old, yet he is pitching in his third World Series already. His composure and poise on the mound are…

Royals Cannot Pitch; Bumgarner Can; Giants Take Game One

October 21, 2014

By: Apurv Baichwal Today’s game marked the beginning of a World Series that should be a close one, filled with long, gruesome, nail-biters. This series is supposed to be a battle between the two best teams in baseball, and for this reason the games should be tight to the very end. This year, the World Series should be even more legendary, because both of the teams came into the postseason from…

Giants Drop Series to Dodgers

Well at least the loss wasn’t nearly as bad as yesterday. The Giants definitely held their own, but they weren’t able to completely figure the Dodgers’ ace Clayton Kershaw out. They also got extremely unlucky on the defensive end, and the game was even closer than the 4-2 score would make it seem. In the second inning, the Dodgers drew first blood on a couple of unlucky errors. Dodgers’ shortstop Hanley Ramirez…

Giants Annihilated By Dodgers

September 13, 2014

For anybody who got their hopes up after yesterday’s 9-0 win, today’s game was quite a letdown. Honestly, it looked more like a football game with the Dodgers shutting out the Giants and scoring a couple touchdowns and a field goal. In plainer terms, the Dodgers won 17-0. And yes, that is 17-0. This was also the worst loss the Giants have ever had at the hands of the Dodgers,…
