DO THEY NEED A CHAPMAN?

Ben and Adam discuss the 49-30 Giants. The bullpen hasn’t been great, but the offense and starting pitching have carried the Giants into first place. Do they need to shore up the bullpen with a trade? Or can this team win it all as constructed?

BEST STRETCH IN SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS HISTORY

Before last night’s loss, the Giants were 27-8 in their last 35 games. That’s the best 35-game stretch in S.F. Giants history. It’s hard to complain because they’ve been playing so well, but Matt Duffy’s recent achilles injury means the lineup is in need of right handed hitters even more than before. Will the team […]

FLAWED BUT ROLLING

Although the Giants (39-26) sit comfortably in first place, six games up on the L.A. Dodgers, the team isn’t without its flaws.

MUCH BETTER THAN THEIR RECORD

Ben and Adam are at it again, this time talking about how the Giants are much better than their early season record. It was an ugly start to the week, with the Giants getting swept in a four game series at home, but they’ve rebounded nicely, winning three of four, with Cueto and Samardzija going […]
