Lincecum, T. - 52 (2)

Yep, it's shocking, astounding, even scandalizing, to learn that Timmeh is second best at anything, but in this case he is. Ubaldo Jimenez is first with 61.  Phrasing the response in the form of a...

JuggerNot? MRI for Schierholtz

Giants outfielder Nate Schierholtz was examined by a specialist Monday and is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam to determine the cause of spasms in his lower back. Schierholtz already has missed time because of a sore hamstring that probably is related to the back issue. He said he had never experienced any problems with his back until now. --- It has been a rough spring for Schierholtz, who had an emergency root canal a week ago. The problem stemmed from a chipped tooth he sustained in that famous collision with Chinese catcher Yang Yang while playing for the Bronze-medal-winning U.S. Olympic team in Beijing last summer. The price of Freedom Stains is eternal vigilance, or at least a bit of novocaine. --- Plus other Baggsarific items.

Giants to carry 3 catchers in '09?

It's a roster construction you don't see very often anymore (and no the emergency catcher -- Pedro cough Feliz -- doesn't count) but it just might be the Giants will end up structured this way next...


Semi-OT: Jamie, Sarah & Me

Frederick Deshaun Lewis. LF - SF Giants. 2008 All-Star. There, I said it. And it's not as far-fetched as it might sound.


P(b)itching Situation

It's worth noting that if you subtract the awfulness called Brad Hennessey the Giants bullpen ERA would shrink to 2.92 which would be good for third best in the NL so far this year. It's hard to...
