However, reports that the San Francisco Giants have claimed San Diego Padres closer Heath Bell is making headlines all over the blogosphere. The Giants and Padres now have two days to complete a trade, or else Bell will be forced to play out the rest of the season in a Padres uniform.

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Dan UgglaNow that Dan Uggla has gone hitless for once, can we please remember that the Atlanta Braves are in a playoff race? As everybody must know, Uggla went 0-for-3 against the Chicago Cubs on Sunday to snap his consecutive games with a hit streak at 33, but with all the attention Uggla’s been getting over the last month and a half, you wouldn’t know that the Braves currently have a four-game lead over the San Francisco Giants for the NL wild card.

Slumping San Francisco Giants losing ground to Arizona Diamondbacks

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Tim LincecumThe San Francisco Giants have been anything but worthy defenders of their World Series championship lately. They’ve lost more than they have won lately and have seen a somewhat comfortable lead in the NL West over the Arizona Diamondbacks shrink to a mere half game. The latest insult came on Thursday night when Cliff Lee – who last pitched against the Giants as a member of the Texas Rangers in the Fall Classic – shut them down and kept them off the scoreboard, handing them their ninth loss in 14 games.

Closer role still a work in progress

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Brian WilsonIn the last few decades, the role of the closer has grown exponentially from guys who had to mop up games that a starter couldn’t finish to pitchers with defined jobs that earn them save stats all their own as well as paychecks with a significant number of zeros. However, despite the prestige the role gets when successful, it’s still very much a work in progress. On average, teams only convert 68 percent of their save opportunities.

Barry Bonds found guilty of one count of obstruction of justice

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, MLB, News,

Barry Bonds guilty on one count of obstruction of justiceBarry Bonds, the former Pittsburgh Pirates and San Francisco Giants slugger, has been found guilty of one count of obstruction of justice, but a jury of eight women and four men couldn't come to a verdict in regards to three other charges. The obstruction charge could carry a 15-21 months jail sentence, however, similar verdicts for other athletes involved with the long-time steroids case involving BALCO (Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative) have brought six months to a year of home confinement. Something similar should come to Bonds, who has constantly denied knowingly using performance-enhancing drugs. Speculation will always abound and Bonds will likely always be dogged by this situation. The next judgement will be for the Hall of Fame and it'll be interesting how the voting goes.

Brandon Belt may be ready for majors

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB, Rumors,

Brandon BeltIf you were in Bruch Bochy’s position, you would probably feel just as spoiled as he does. For years, spring training for the San Francisco Giants’ manager was simply an opportunity to see if there was anyone he could work with and just hope the season didn’t turn out to be as average as the one before it. This year, with a World Series championship still coursing through his veins, everything’s changed. And not the least of that comes with the emergence of first baseman Brandon Belt.

Bengie Molina wins ring with losing Texas Rangers

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Championship, MLB,

Bengie MolinaBengie Molina couldn’t lose in this World Series. Sure, his Texas Rangers did roll over to allow the San Francisco Giants to win their first World Series since moving out of the Polo Grounds, but Molina’s allegiance to both teams during this season gave him the right to wear a World Series ring regardless of how the series played out. Molina started the season with the Giants, but was sent to the Rangers to make room for Buster Posey behind the plate.
