Hall of Famer Gaylord Perry – San Francisco Giants | Photo: MLB.com
The Giants left for San Francisco in 1958. Because of their move, along with the Dodgers jump to LA, New York was awarded an expansion franchise in 1962. Thus, the Mets were born. Fun fact about the Mets, their uniform colors being orange and blue is a nod to the Giants and Dodgers who left town. That’s what I’ve always known and apparently it’s true.
There were still Giants fans left in the city of New York. My father was one of them, and he’s the reason I want to write about a Sunday doubleheader at Shea Stadium in 1964. He was there, and this is one of the stories I grew up listening to that made me a Giants fan today. Who knows if the account I was given was totally true, but who cares? It’s Giants lore, and I ate it up. Let’s dig in to the day. Continue reading →
Melky, why? Why did you do that? What the crap dude? We’re super mad and we tell you why.
Chad and Willie almost cry over spilled Melk. As Giants fans, we feel betrayed and lied to, and much of the Giants organization feels the same way. It’s not just that he took PEDs, it’s that him and his camp tried to cover it up with a ridiculous fake supplement website plot. WTF WERE YOU THINKING MELKY!! At least the Giants had time to cancel 20,000 t-shirts with his likeness on it.
Chances are that we’ll never see him in black and orange again (well, except maybe the Orioles), even if the Giants make the postseason.
The Week In Review
Giants are 4-1 without Melky, suck on that

The Big Question
Bochy: “It’s time for Lincecum to be Lincecum”
Who should the Giants play in LF? Blanco v righties, Christian v lefties? Reported today that Theriot is taking practice in LF. Belt with Posey at first and Sanchez at C? Xavier Nady? Should they go after anyone? (Francoeur, Cody Ross, Scott Hairston, Rick Ankiel, Burrell?) How may September callups affect this?
Tweet At Me, Bruh
@TheFakeESPN: Melky realizes he should have just presented YouPorn instead of fake website as cause of boosted testosterone.
@DodgersGM: Juan Uribe’s PEDs didn’t work because he bought them off MelkyCabrera’s fake website.
@CSNBaggs: Bochy asked Theriot how he felt after working out in LF: “He said, ‘I’m fine The only thing I’m having trouble with is fly balls.'”
We Should Hate This Guy
MELKY FREAKIN’ CABRERA
Why We Will Win It All
The Giants somehow make the playoffs, Melky juices while he’s suspended and comes back and carries them to the WS title…or not…
This whole Melky thing actually galvanizes the locker room. The Giants love to feel like underdogs and now they really do.
