We review the last week in Giants’ baseball, including a 2-4 record, using Nick Vincent as an opener after being outscored 42-5 in the first inning through 40 games, Derek Holland’s comments about a “fake” injury and Zaidi’s response, injuries, the revolving door that is the roster (36 on the 25 man and counting), who’s hot and not, Hunter Pence’s renaissance, and much more.
