MLB—It’s time to back off on manager bashing - ESPN

“In close games, managers can sway and make a move that may turn the tide,” San Francisco’s Jake Peavy said. “That said, the majority of the games are going to be decided by the guys who put the uniform on between the white lines. Your manager has a big thing to do with the way he’s got his guys ready to play and the way they believe in him as far as the game management. And whatever he says, guys believe it’s going to work. It’s just the way it works, especially after you’ve had some success.”

Rewind: Giants burn up base paths to overwhelm Royals in Game 4 | CSN Bay Area

As a sometime hat tosser, I encourage Bochy to use the hat toss to reduce stress during crucial game moments.

That is what happened to Bochy’s hat in the third inning Saturday night, as out of place as the stars and stripes amid gum wads and seed husks. It arrived there on a frustrated flick of the wrist from the manager following a chopper to the right side and an awkward angle to first base and a blind, backwards stab with a foot where Ryan Vogelsong found flat-earth disappointment instead of a base.

Giants to promote Brett Bochy

Gleeman is not a fan.

The Giants are rolling a family reunion into their September call-ups.

The team plans to purchase the contract of right-hander Brett Bochy, son of manager Bruce Bochy, along with four other additions after Triple-A Fresno plays its season finale on Monday.

The younger Bochy, a 20th-round pick in 2010 out of Kansas, posted a 3.57 ERA in 34 games (two starts), striking out 47 and walking 24 in 53 innings… The 27-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery shortly after the Giants drafted him and has made steady progress over the past four seasons…

This isn’t the first time a Giants manager has had his son on the roster. Bochy’s predecessor, Felipe Alou, managed Moises Alou with both the Montreal Expos and Giants.
