Zaidi set to embark on first Draft with Giants

In about 50 words
This will be a pivotal Draft for the Giants, who are looking to restock their farm system and improve their organizational depth after losing 187 games over the last two years. While the Giants rode a core of homegrown stars to three World Series championships in the first half of this decade, they have traded away recent top Draft picks and missed on others, drying up the flow of impact talent in their pipeline.

What they’re saying
Holmes had served as the A’s assistant scouting director since 2009 and will take over for John Barr, the man responsible for drafting franchise star Buster Posey with the fifth overall pick in 2008. Barr remains in the Giants’ front office, and he will be available as a resource to Holmes and the rest of the amateur scouting department this year.

“Michael, I’ve been in 10 draft rooms with him,” Zaidi said at the Winter Meetings. “A lot of successful A’s Drafts, I know how important he was to those. I think for him to inherit a staff that’s produced many big leaguers, many guys that were key members of the world championship teams, for him to have John’s counsel going forward is going to be a huge asset for him.”

Giants, Marlins battle for NL’s worst record

The Miami Marlins and the San Francisco Giants—the two teams with the worst records in the National League—will open a three-game series on Tuesday night at Marlins Park.

Miami just closed a 4-3 road trip with a come-from-behind, 3-2 win over at Washington on Sunday. The Nationals had won the series’ first three games.

The Giants, who have lost five consecutive games, did not play on Monday, using it as a cross-country travel day.

Marlins first baseman Neil Walker, who went 3-for-5 with an RBI on Sunday, believes his team is in a good place.

Interesting match-up to consider, given the very different directions both teams took to get into this position.

Giants must alter evaluation approach due to changes in minor leagues | NBCS Bay Area

The league has always been offense-crazy, but this season has seen new levels of production. The PCL started using MLB balls and lineups have taken off in a league where altitude was already an issue for pitchers. Teams are averaging 5.62 runs per game and an OPS of .816, and the league-wide ERA is 5.29.

“It’s a little bit like playing in Coors Field everywhere you go,” Suarez said.

Giants’ Farhan Zaidi expresses thoughts on WAR, Buster Posey’s value

Ever since the Giants hired Farhan Zaidi as their president of baseball operations this past offseason, there have been battles between talking heads arguing on the basis of traditional baseball stats and advanced metrics.

Zaidi, who earned his bachelor of science degree at MIT and his PhD at Cal Berkeley, is widely seen as a baseball mind that leans on analytics. So-called baseball fans who don’t want the game to evolve argue that he’s using too many numbers to try and change the game. At the same time, Zaidi has help lead highly successful teams with the A’s and Dodgers.

So, what are his thought on WAR (Wins Above Replacement)?

“Yeah, I think it’s a good measure on how a guy has produced in the past,” Zaidi said Wednesday on KNBR. “I think it’s a nice, valuable back of the envelope calculation for how much value a specific player brought you.”

Problem is, said value for Posey more or less requires him to stay as a catcher- at this point, his value above replacement level is chiefly connected with his defensive play and position.

The Strange Dynasty Of The San Francisco Giants Is Over. (Yes, It Was A Dynasty.)

Over the course of the past decade, the San Francisco Giants put together one of the strangest dynasties in baseball history. And now it is officially coming to an end.

The Giants still have five players left over from their 2014 championship season, but the returns have diminished greatly since then. The team is in last place in the National League West; the FiveThirtyEight model currently predicts it to finish 70-92, which would be one of the worst records in franchise history.1 And it could get worse by season’s end, with ace Madison Bumgarner (among others) on the trade block.

The Giants got here in part by trying to extend the dynasty past its expiration date. But who can blame them? When a team’s initial successes defy the odds, it can be especially difficult to know when a downturn is permanent or just a detour along the road to another title. This is especially true of San Francisco, which sandwiched two mediocre nonplayoff seasons in between World Series titles. But we come here not to bury the Giants’ dynasty but to praise it — and imagine how Farhan Zaidi, the new president of baseball operations, might construct another one where the original once stood.

So what makes the Giants’ dynasty of the 2010s — and yes, it was a bona fide dynasty — maybe the most interesting ever?

Some commentary on the team so many people here have loved to hate.

Nick Vincent to be used by Giants as opener vs. Blue Jays on Tuesday

SAN FRANCISCO—Farhan Zaidi made waves at the Winter Meetings in December when he told a group of beat writers that the Giants could use an opener during the upcoming season. Just 41 games into the Zaidi era, the Giants will actually try it.

Nick Vincent will start Tuesday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays, the team announced Monday. Vincent has served as the bullpen’s de facto long reliever this season, but he has not recorded more than nine outs in an appearance. Vincent has made 366 appearances in his career but started just once, going two innings last season as the Seattle Mariners tried the opener.

The Giants originally had slated Tyler Beede to start Tuesday’s game, but they now are listing Vincent and leaving Wednesday open. Beede could in theory pitch the bulk of Tuesday’s game, although openers traditionally have been used to exploit platoons, so lefty Derek Holland, recently moved to the bullpen, could be a better fit to carry a heavy load Tuesday.

And the bullpen parade begins….

Holland rips Giants’ front office, says he faked injury

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Giants pitcher Derek Holland has criticized San Francisco’s front office and claims he faked an injury that led to a recent stint on the injured list.

Holland was demoted to the bullpen following a 5-4 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday night, then said he has “no idea what they’re doing” in the front office.

The veteran left-hander allowed seven runs in 2 2/3 innings Thursday during a 12-11 loss to Colorado, his first outing after going on the IL with a left index finger bone bruise.

Isn’t this the sort of behavior most likely to lead to the exact opposite of whatever Holland is trying to accomplish?

Report: Bumgarner submits 8-team no-trade list

Leverage to do what? If he doesn’t sign in SF, it’s clearly in his best interest to get traded.

Now, the fact that those teams are on Bumgarner’s list doesn’t necessarily mean he wants to avoid them. Rather, it’s a way for Bumgarner to gain some leverage over his situation, as the eight teams are all contenders that could be interested in acquiring him before the non-waiver Trade Deadline.

As Rosenthal notes, Bumgarner will likely be motivated to approve a trade because players who are dealt during the season are not eligible to receive a qualifying offer in free agency the following offseason.

Up until the next year’s MLB Draft, teams need to forfeit one or more picks to sign a free agent who rejected a qualifying offer, which can sometimes put a damper on a player’s free-agent value. That is believed to be one of the reasons why Dallas Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel remain unsigned, as both players rejected qualifying offers. The market for each player is expected to pick up once the Draft passes June 3-5.

Bees Invade Giants-Reds Game

When it comes to bees, they get what they want. Today, they wanted to be at the Cincinnati Reds’ stadium as the team was getting ready to play against the Giants

The bees swarmed the field just as the Reds were taking the field for the scheduled 12:35 start. The umpires ordered the players off the field, and everyone just sort of stood around and watched the bees for a little bit.

NO! NOT THE BEES!!!

Reds become first team in 12 years to homer on three straight pitches

After hitting eight combined homers in their first two games against the San Francisco Giants, the Cincinnati Reds did not need much to time Sunday to make it nine homers for the series.

It took them even less time to make it No. 10 and No. 11.

Eugenio Suárez, Jesse Winker and Derek Dietrich all hit back-to-back-to-back homers for the Reds in the first inning on Sunday, pouncing on Giants starter Jeff Samardzija for an early 4-0 lead.

Unfortunately for the Reds, they turned back into the Reds after the first inning….

Madison Bumgarner is forcing contenders to consider trade with Giants

Madison Bumgarner did not get off to the strongest start to 2019. But don’t look now, because the Giants ace just might be finding the form that made him one of the top pitchers in the game.

Bumgarner is coming off his best performance of the still-young season, giving up only one run in six innings to the NL West rival Dodgers on Wednesday. That prompted catcher Buster Posey to say the left-hander displayed “the best stuff he’s had all year.”

As it turns out, Posey wasn’t blowing smoke. Bumgarner was ... or was throwing it, rather.

As ESPN’s Buster Olney points out, Bumgarner’s average fastball velocity in the Giants’ win was 91.9 mph—essentially the same as it was in 2015, when the lefty arguably had his best season as a pro. He also generated 18 missed swings, his most in any start since September 2016 (also against the Dodgers). All 18 missed swings came on fastballs.

Mind you, this sort of trade talk is really only meaningful if there’s any sense of what the Giants could get in return….

MLB roundup: Giants dig out of 8-0 hole to beat Reds

Evan Longoria belted a homer to lead off the 11th inning, and the visiting San Francisco Giants overcame an eight-run deficit to post a 12-11 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday.

After striking out a pair of batters in a scoreless 10th inning, Jared Hughes (2-1) saw his 0-1 slider to Longoria deposited just inside the left field foul pole to begin the 11th.

The blast capped San Francisco’s comeback from an 8-0 deficit, highlighted by Stephen Vogt’s game-tying homer off closer Raisel Iglesias with two outs in the ninth inning.

Joe Panik launched a two-run homer, and Steven Duggar and Brandon Belt each had a two-run single for the Giants, who overcame a pair of three-run homers by Derek Dietrich to snap a seven-game losing streak in Cincinnati.

The last time the Giants came back from such a deficit? 1989- also against the Reds.

Something to make fans of both teams feel better: The Giants reached the World Series that year, and the Reds won the World Series the year afterwards.

Exclusive: Giants acknowledge it’s finally time to explore moving in the fences at Oracle Park – The Athletic

The problem isn’t the park; it’s the players the Giants are playing. .

One of the owners, making casual conversation, asked whether the time has come for the Giants to reconfigure their beauty of a ballpark on the shores of McCovey Cove. Should they remove the hazard of bullpens in foul territory? And if so, should they seize that moment as an opportunity to reassess whether their pitcher-friendly ballpark has shifted from charming and idiosyncratic to disadvantageous and extreme?

Giants slide past Rockies in 18th inning

Brandon Belt opened the 18th inning with a double, and he slid home on Erik Kratz’s bases-loaded ground ball one out later, giving the San Francisco Giants a 3-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies in a game that started on Friday night and ended on Saturday morning.

The win was the Giants’ second in two games in the four-game series and gave them their first winning streak of the season.

Colorado, which led 2-0 but did not score in the final 14 innings, dropped its seventh straight.

The sort of thing that makes you wish the Croix de Candlestick could have survived Candlestick Park somehow.

Giants add veteran outfielder Kevin Pillar in four-player trade with Blue Jays

On Tuesday, the Toronto Blue Jays announced that they were trading their longest-tenured player, outfielder Kevin Pillar, to the San Francisco Giants. In exchange, the Blue Jays received right-handers Juan De Paula and Derek Law, along with recently designated infielder Alen Hanson.

The best get for the Blue Jays was certainly De Paula, who was ranked as the Giants No. 19 prospect. The 21-year-old posted a 1.72 ERA in 52.1 innings at Single-A last season with a 9.5 K/9. With Pillar leaving Toronto, No. 5 prospect Anthony Alford now appears poised for a shot at the everyday starting center field job. And worst case scenario, if Alford doesn’t seem ready, the Blue Jays could move Randal Grichuk over to center and have Teoscar Hernandez and Billy McKinney play the corners.

On the flip side of the trade, the Giants add another veteran reinforcement to their young outfield. Outfielder Michael Reed was designated for assignment to clear a spot for Pillar on the 40-man roster. Now, San Francisco’s new outfield will probably consist of Steven Duggar moving from center to left, Pillar taking over at center and Gerardo Parra playing right field. The Giants will also have an off the bench option in Connor Joe.

So, what is more shameful- raising the white flag during the off-season, or doing so a few games into the season?

Reyes Moronta’s impossible dreams are coming true in the Giants bullpen

LOS ANGELES — Francisco Moronta stirred at four every morning without an alarm, sometimes not five or six hours after having nodded off to the New York Yankees on TV. He’d rise and go to the farm to milk the cows. Then he’d load a truck with gravel or sand or concrete and drive that truck, sometimes four hours or more, to some other town, some other place, and return with an empty truck. At night he’d sit with his boy and together they’d eat fried chicken and rice, Francisco on one side of the boy and his mother, Ivonne, on the other, and watch the Yankees again until he fell asleep.

He’d been a catcher once. He loved baseball. Like every boy, it seemed, in the Dominican Republic, he had impossible dreams. But the town, Quinigua, was so small, maybe 700 people, and almost 90 miles from Santiago, so those sorts of dreams more often ended up under a skittish cow at dawn or pulling a load filled with other people’s tomorrows. Sometimes both.

Nobody from their town had ever made the big leagues as far as anyone could remember, so even in a place where dreams came big and cheap—name the town in the Dominican Republic—there’d probably be nothing bigger than the weekend games that drew enough folks to make them seem special.

In spite of the fact that Richard Kiley has been no help whatsoever!

The numbers behind Farhan Zaidi’s busy first offseason with Giants

LOS ANGELES—It seemed a lock that at some point in his first offseason with the Giants, Farhan Zaidi would deal bullpen depth for a starting outfielder. The new president of baseball operations was even open about the calls he was getting on guys like Will Smith and Tony Watson, along with his desire to deal for outfield help.

On Thursday, Smith, Watson and the rest took their place in the bullpen. Connor Joe and Michael Reed started in the outfield corners. That’s not what was expected.

“It was a deep reliever market in free agency this offseason, and we liked our relievers—they weren’t kind of just fodder for us to trade and acquire other pieces,” Zaidi said when discussing the roster Thursday. “A deal like that certainly made sense on paper, but we didn’t line up on anything that made sense for us.”

That doesn’t mean it was quiet on the transaction wire. Zaidi came up short on his high-profile pursuit of Bryce Harper and didn’t really dip into the rest of the free agency market much, but he certainly kept busy. On Opening Day, there were 12 new faces on the 40-man roster.

In case you’ve ever been curious, a consideration of the moves a GM can make during a single offseason.

Dodgers are a hit to open season; Giants sputtering

One weekend series was all it took for the Los Angeles Dodgers to exceed the already lofty offensive expectations that were put on the club.

The Dodgers will head into the opener of a three-game series against the San Francisco Giants on Monday at Dodger Stadium having scored 42 runs and picking up three victories in a four-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Giants, meanwhile, have been showing something altogether different. They lost three of four at San Diego over the weekend, not scoring more than one run in any of the defeats. The Giants scored five runs total in the four games and did not have a run over the first 17 innings of the season.

Bruce Bochy’s early Giants rest days lead to surprising lineup vs. Padres

SAN FRANCISCO—Giants backup catcher Erik Kratz has plenty of experience as a Position Player Pitching, but Bruce Bochy said Friday that Pablo Sandoval is still his first choice for the role.

So some things haven’t changed. But the lineup certainly did Friday, and it came as a bit of a shock. Here’s the group for the second game of the season:

Michael Reed RF (picked up a week ago)
Buster Posey 1B (not catching after just one day)
Yangervis Solarte 2B (no Panik after just one day)
Evan Longoria 3B (this is normal)
Brandon Crawford SS (ditto)
Connor Joe LF (picked up eight days ago)

Recent cuts made by Giants could fit in later for team down the road

SAN FRANCISCO—For years, the Giants have made cuts in bunches. They would send out eight or 10 players at a time, but this spring it’s been a trickle, with 10 different sets of transactions thus far.

The latest set cut some big names from the spring roster. As we did early in camp, and again earlier this week, let’s take a look at the players the Giants took out of their Scottsdale Stadium clubhouse and their chances of returning

Mind you, those of us familiar with the Giants’ minor league teams aren’t surprised- a lot of the folk they had in Triple-A to start the season were with the team long before the minor-league season ended last year, and this year doesn’t feel like it will be different.

Giants confident massive new scoreboard will be ready for Opening Day

SAN FRANCISCO—When members of the local media were let into Oracle Park on Friday to see upgrades, it was easy to be concerned about the scoreboard. The new version appears nowhere close to done, but the Giants are quickly making progress, and in the few minutes it took three team executives to brief the media on the ballpark, one percent of the scoreboard panels got completed.

Bill Schlough, the team’s Chief Information Officer, said there are no concerns about Opening Day. The $10 million Diamond Vision board will be fully operational by April 5, when the team returns home to host the Tampa Bay Rays. Schlough said the scoreboard will be more than two-thirds finished by Monday’s exhibition game against the A’s, and since the Giants have been testing it as they install rows, they will be able to use the completed portion Monday.

Even that will represent a significant upgrade. The new scoreboard will be the first 4K version in the majors, and will be 153 feet wide and 70 feet high. It is more than three times the size of the previous one, with twice the resolution.

Giants acquire Connor Joe, who has shot at making Opening Day roster

SAN FRANCISCO—The Giants swapped out a Rule 5 pick who wasn’t going to make the team for one who now very well might.

Drew Ferguson, an outfielder picked up from the Houston Astros in the Rule 5 Draft, was designated for assignment Thursday to clear a roster spot for Connor Joe, a utility man who was acquired from the Cincinnati Reds. Joe is under the same restrictions, and given that the Giants picked him up one week from Opening Day, there seems a good chance that Farhan Zaidi will try to tuck the former Dodgers prospect onto the roster.

Joe, 26, has moved all over throughout his minor league career, primarily playing first base, third and the outfield. As a right-handed bat with a .363 career OBP in the minors, he fits a lot of what the Giants are looking for on their bench. That also could lead to some interesting decisions next week.

Benny Golson wrote a great jazz number about him, didn’t he?
