Brian Wilson, M.C. Hammer and Others Stump for SF Mayor

Brian Wilson is everywhere, even wearing Hammer pants. M.C. Hammer is in the video with Giants contributor Ashkon trying to re-elect Ed Lee on November 8th.

The Weezy bit on all of the “Lee’s” he likes is pretty fun.

Giants claim Padres closer Heath Bell

Does the team with the best bullpen in baseball really need Heath Bell from the Padres. Well apparently, as the Giants have claimed him off waivers. Although Arizona GM Kevin Towers was rumored to also be going after Bell. So was it a move to block the D-backs, or is Brian Wilson just that hurt? Let’s see if both teams can agree on a trade first.

The Silence Of The Lambs…

If it wasn’t so painful,  it’d be laughable.  Where’s Carlos Beltran?  Brian Wilson?  How about Andres Torres, Sergio Romo?  Is Miguel Tejada a double play waiting to happen or am I just being a cruel pessimist?  This is crunch time, and the Giants are playing their worst baseball of the year.  When the Pirates had a Ten Game Losing Streak…  the Giants were just what the doctor ordered.  Florida had lost 7 in a row…  hey, bring on the Giants.  You get the picture.  And Houston, who’ve already lost nearly 100 games… slapped the Giants around all week.  Had Panda not gone deep yesterday, I’m telling you, Bruce Bochy was on the verge of taking hostages and barricading a convenience store.  And stop saying the Giants are set to play some losing teams.  I promise you, they’re all lickin’ their chops to get at the World Champs.  I know we’ve got more than a month to go.  But with apologies to Yogi Berra…. It’s getting’ late early.

Watch the Giants Visit the White House Today at 1pm

Everybody has been talking about the San Francisco Giants visit to the White House today, and rightfully so. I think Brian Wilson’s wardrobe has taken more interest than anything. He says he will tone it down, as they were instructed on how to dress in a memo.

You can stream the visit below today at 1pm. (7/25)

Giants On A Roll…

The Faithful got through the All Star Break… and you’ve got to admit, we’re feeling pretty good.  Ryan Vogelsong was introduced as an All Star (unthinkable in the spring), Panda ripped a solid double to drive in a run, Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain got to rest…. and The Beard slammed the door.  Props to Bruce Bochy for runnin’ the show his way.  Oh, and the Giants, even with their impotent offense….. still lead the NL West.  And if you need a little more excitement, don’t forget tonight’s premiere episode of the Giants docudrama “The Franchise” on SHOWTIME.  Get an inside look at some of the young season’s highs…. and lows, including one of the most talked about incidents of the year, the devastating injury to Buster Posey.

The Batting Stance Guy makes Fun Of Giants Players For Franchise Promo

The guy known as the Batting Stance Guy, who perfectly impersonates players at the plate, is now making fun of several San Francisco Giants players.

He is promoting the Showtime documentary called The Franchise. He takes on Brian Wilson, Cody Ross, Andres Torres, Pat the Bat, Buster Posey and many others. Torres and Posey are highlights.

Now I Have To Watch The All Star Game…

I guess the Major League All Star Game doesn’t carry the same weight as it did in the days of Henry Aaron, Mickey Mantle, Roberto Clemente and Willie Mays.  Some guys just don’t seem to want to play.  They need the rest instead.  I understand.  But this time, I’m gonna see FIVE Giants introduced, along with Giants skipper Bruce Bochy and his staff.  While it’s great to see Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum and Brian Wilson make the roster, last minute addition Pablo Sandoval has really got to be in seventh heaven.  The kid nearly ate himself out of a job last season, and rode the bench a lot during that memorable post season run to the Championship.  But I think the best story is Ryan Vogelsong, the washed up big leaguer who was cut, toiled in mediocrity in the Japanese League… and was a walk-on in spring training.  I imagine Giants fans will have goose bumps when he’s introduced tomorrow night.  Ryan Vogelsong is an All Star.
