Should Giants have Belt lead off?

Denard Span is no longer a high-OBP guy, while Brandon Belt drew 104 walks last season and posted a .394 OBP. Belt usually hits in the middle of the order, but he could also fit atop the lineup, David Schoenfield writes. Unconventional leadoff options

Bonds makes it on ESPN's ballot

ESPN's 17 Hall of Fame voters cast their ballots, and Barry Bonds grabbed 13 votes. That's enough to get him over the 75 percent threshold. Jeff Kent only received three votes. ESPN's HOF ballot

Crawford, Bumgarner bring plenty of fun

Bryce Harper issued the opening salvo in the "Make Baseball Fun Again" movement, but plenty of others played their part as well. Brandon Crawford had seven hits in one game in August, and Madison Bumgarner pushed for a spot in the HR Derby with his prowess at the plate. Who made baseball fun again

Proof that anything is possible in baseball

How can you not love a sport in which only one hitter in baseball has homered off the best pitcher alive (Clayton Kershaw) in each of the last two seasons -- and it's a PITCHER (Madison Bumgarner)? Strange but true

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Royals signed infielder Brooks Conrad and pitcher Jonathan Sánchez to minor-league contracts. The two share a connection to one of the most famous Giants games in their 5-year, 3-title run. Sánchez started Game 3 of the 2010 NLDS against the Braves, a game the Giants trailed 2-1 in the 9th inning. Aubrey Huff tied the game with a hit and Conrad then made an error on a ground ball hit by Buster Posey to put the Giants ahead. The Giants won the game, and went on to win that series and the World Series.

ESPN Stats and Information  

In addition to signing Jimmy Rollins, the Giants also signed OF Justin Ruggiano and 1B Michael Morse to minor-league deals. Ruggiano's claim to fame is that he's 5-for-11 with 3 HR vs new teammate, Madison Bumgarner. The 3 HR are his most vs a pitcher and make him 1 of 4 players with at least 3 vs Bumgarner. Morse helped the Giants (and Bumgarner) win a World Series, getting 2 RBIs in Game 7 against the Royals in 2014.
