Today the Giants hosted a Media Open House (I didn’t get the invite, so now I know how the people at Deadspin feel with no access) to make some announcements about giveaways, park improvements and upcoming commercials. Some of the biggest news, and the one that seemed to cause more than a few people to scratch their heads was the addition of a “beach” on the first base side called the Corona...
Meanwhile in San Francisco
Jayson Stark of ESPN said (via twitter) over the weekend that the Giants are telling teams that they’re shopping Ryan Theriot and Mike Fontenot. If Freddy Sanchez starts on the DL, Manny Burriss looks like the favorite to get the Opening Day second base job. NOOOOO! Panda won’t let you take Fontenot!

Giants Release Veteran Arm →
The Giants have released Ramon Ortiz, reports Hank Schulman of The San Francisco Chronicle (on Twitter). The Praver/Shapiro client signed a minor league deal with the Giants last month. The Giants would have owed Ortiz a $100K retention bonus had they kept him in the organization past a certain date thanks to the new collective bargaining agreement, notes Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area (on...
An Adjustment Each San Francisco Giant Needs to... →
“Tim Lincecum: Needs to work on limiting his walks. This will directly allow him to pitch deeper into games by limiting his pitch count. If there is one thing you can knock Lincecum on, it’s his inability to keep his pitch count low, but that comes with the territory of being a strikeout pitcher. Madison Bumgarner: “MadBum” doesn’t need to make many adjustments...

Brian Sabean walked into the Giants’ clubhouse and did a double-take. To his left stood a short utility infielder with dark brown hair, dressing quietly at his locker. Sabean looked to his right, and there was another short utility infielder dressing at his locker. The only difference was this short utility infielder was thinner and had hair of blond. “What the hell is going on around here? Did...

Cain 'really torn' over Giants future →
Asked whether he was optimistic or pessimistic that an extension could be reached before the April 6 season opener, Cain pondered the question for a time. “I guess … I don’t know,” Cain told CSNBayArea.com. “I’m hesitant to answer that question because I’m thinking about the times I’ve had playing with these guys, growing up in this organization. I’m definitely going to enjoy this season to the...
