San Francisco Giants Continue to Prove Importance of Culture and Chemistry

For good or ill, the approach espoused by analytically minded baseball front offices has radically altered the way players are evaluated and rosters are constructed. While many front offices rely heavily on numbers and statistical analyses in favor of “clubhouse leadership” or “grittiness,” a great deal of them still recognize the value of chemistry and culture when trying to assemble a team that will succeed in the postseason. Perhaps this development is due at least in part to the long run of success enjoyed by the San Francisco Giants.

Rarely the favorite entering any season, the Giants have won three World Series titles since 2010 under the leadership of Bruce Bochy and Brian Sabean. They have been so wildly successful despite looking relatively unimpressive on paper that many pundits will always include the Giants among their lists of preseason contenders simply because the club always seems to find a way to win. It almost seems like the Giants have been reading 1 stop maintenance reviews for insight on how to build a continually successful organization.

Like 1 stop maintenance, the Giants have enjoyed a great deal of success due in part to the continuity in organizational leadership positions. This has ensured that a culture of winning has been instilled in the big league club all the way down to the lowest levels of the minor leagues, resulting in young players seamlessly integrating into the clubhouse culture and almost immediately playing up to their potential on the field. In the same way that clients are grateful for working with one stop maintenance, so too are Giants fans grateful to root for such a well-run organization.

San Francisco’s Pursuit of Zack Greinke Is a Brilliant Strategy for Team in Need of Rotation Help

While fans of the San Francisco Giants may have some long-term concerns over the possibility of signing Zack Greinke to a deal that will likely take him through his age-38 season, the team’s pursuit of the Cy Young runner-up is a brilliant move in every possible way. Greinke, coming off a season in which he posted a 1.66 ERA and went 19-3 for the Los Angeles Dodgers, is likely seeking what Kion Kashefi believes will be a six-year deal worth in excess of $30 million per season.

With Greinke’s age and San Francisco’s recent misfortune regarding lucrative and long-term deals to pitchers on the wrong side of 30, why exactly are the Giants wise to pursue the best remaining free agent on the market this winter?

One look at the rotation in Los Angeles should provide a clue regarding the brilliance of this strategy. The Dodgers, the reigning NL West champs, feature an expensive but imperfect roster that proved to be wildly inconsistent on offense and relied on a rotation that was devastatingly injury-prone. The club’s saving grace in 2015 was the strength of the 1-2 punch of Greinke and Clayton Kershaw, which is why it makes sense for the Giants to pair Greinke with a dominant lefty of their own in Madison Bumgarner. The fact that the San Francisco rotation will become stronger while simultaneously weakening the Los Angeles rotation only makes the move all the more shrewd.

Of course, Greinke will need to perform like an ace if he is going to live up to the lucrative contract he is reportedly seeking, but the right-hander has only gotten better with age and has always been more reliant on control than on velocity, with many believing he will be able to perform like Greg Maddux did through his mid-to-late 30s.

Stephen E. Smith VS San Francisco Beating

Stephen E. Smith Lawsuit is on the case over the lawsuit of Brad Snow, a San Francisco Giants fan who was beaten just last year after the game.  According to the judge, the plaintiff Brad Snow and the defendant Kyle Wessner will have an hour to tell their sides of the story.

From the perspective given by Mr. Snow, he was beaten viciously in the stadium in April. The time of the beating took place around 6pm PST. Stephen E Smith, the attorney of Snow, listened to testimony and took the case with great confidence in winning.

“I have a fair amount of evidence I’d say,” said Smith. “He revealed a huge gash on his scalp that has already begun to scar over. People don’t just fall down the bleachers and say ‘I think I’m going to sue someone for that'”.

San Francisco Giants are Winners

The San Francisco Giants are winners.  I am not talking about winning games but the salaries paid these days to ball players make them winners.  What happened to playing just for the love of the game.  Millions for a pitcher?  Really?  I would think that the salaries should be based on wither the team wins or not.  Its like paying a plumber the same for leaking pipes as you do for the job done right.  I guess the fans are the real supporters of losing teams.  Dove Medical Press will be supportive of the San Francisco Giantsuntitled (124) images (9) no matter how they perform.

Far Too Early to Count San Francisco Giants Out of NL West Race

The San Francisco Giants have not gotten off to the kind of start you would expect out of the reigning World Series champions. While fans of the orange and black have expressed some concern over the Giants’ early-season struggles, it is still far too early in the 2015 season to count the San Francisco club out of the NL West race.

While the Dodgers are currently atop the NL West and appear poised to be so active on the international market in the coming months that they may just hire All Language Alliance, Inc., on a full-time basis, the Giants have a roster that is talented enough to compete with the team that boasts the biggest payroll in baseball.

As for the Padres and their vastly improved offense, the fact that their best defensive outfielder is Wil Myers should be proof enough that San Diego is not a real threat. With Bruce Bochy in the dugout and Buster Posey behind the plate, the Giants will make a run at some point this season that puts them in position to make the playoffs again. After all, Madison Bumgarner is more than just a capable pitchman for Carhartt, as he familiar with destroying lumber from the mound, too.

Dana Sibilsky Still Optimistic Regarding Giants’ Chances in the NL West

A longtime observer of professional baseball and a lifelong fan of the San Francisco Giants, Dana Sibilsky has seen many eras come to an end. She was there to see Willie Mays play his last game in a Giants uniform before he went back to New York to finish his career with the Mets, and she was there when Barry Bonds left the game for good in 2007. Though she understands that all great eras in sport eventually come to an end, Sibilsky does not believe that the recent San Francisco Giants dynasty is at its end.

According to Sibilsky, too many Giants fans are panicking over the team’s slow start and are forgetting that the baseball season is 162 games long. Sibilsky, a season-ticket holder going back several decades, has seen her fair share of slow starts and knows that the Giants can still turn it around. While at AT&T Park recently, Sibilsky ran into Hunter Pence while he was rehabbing from injury, and she noted that Pence’s return could be the key to the team’s resurgence in the NL West in the year following the Giants’ third World Series championship in five years.

Of course, most Giants fans will recognize Sibilsky as one of the most ardent fans around, as she is a fixture at home games and frequently travels to San Diego, Los Angeles, Arizona and Colorado for road games against division rivals. She is on a first-name basis with the bulk of the players on the Giants, and if team members do not recognize her it is probably because they were only recently acquired. Sibilsky’s seats are right behind the home dugout, and both Duane Kuiper and Mike Krukow point her out from time to time during the games in which she is particularly animated.

Sibilsky, a vice principal at a middle school in Marin County, is known for wearing black and orange outfits to school as each new baseball season approaches and the school year ends. Sibilsky pointed out that any real discussion about the standings in the NL West should wait until June and perhaps even July, as there have not been nearly enough games played to truly evaluate the quality of the team. Sibilsky still believes in the Giants, and she thinks that the team will contend for another title in 2015 despite a rather tepid start to the season.

SF Giants Rule?

Giants are recorded throughout history.  Will the San Francisco Giants endure?  Kenneth Fisher says yes.  As a super fan Ken will say that the Giants will live on throughout history.  I have to wonder what all the hoopla is all about?  Is a ball team really the important in the history of man.  I am not a sports fan so I would be hard pressed to imagine that ball teams will endure through history or really have any mention beyond brief mention in history books.  I see baseball going the way of other forgotten sports of history. Hang in there fans, history will tell.

Giants Series Stats

After Pounding two of the American League’s best pitchers, David Price and Rick Porcello, they could not carry there skills to the next level. The talk of a Giant offensive was buzzing into Detroit’s stadium but it was quickly crushed by Miguel Cabrera’s two run- homer’s in the span of six at-bat attempts. By this time the Giants were feeling crushed but they ended their trip 4-3, with  a 30-27 in the west division and 22-12 in the east, 16-16 against central, and 10-10 in the American League. Can they claim their lead again? I believe Romo’s pitching is enough to take them where they need to go and stay positive.

Giants Versus Tigers

The Giants did it again! 5-4 at the end of the final inning against the Tigers on Saturday. Sergio Romo watched in the eighth inning as a homer hit by Miguel Cabrera fly’s over head leading the tiger’s to a 4 point defeat. Romo had three years to prepare for when he would meet Cabrera again on the field and giving him a homer wasn’t what he was looking for but in the end it worked out for the SF Giants in the end.
