DateQuestionAnswer
2013-04-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's been the problem with Brandon Belt?
(nubber from tx)
Bruce Bochy mentioned some mechanical inconsistencies, but batted-ball luck has been as much of a problem as anything. He hit four balls hard in Tuesday's game and came away with next to nothing; a .231 BABIP and 28.2% line-drive rate won't jibe for long. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-11-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wondering how the Giants keep winning titles with such a mediocre farm system? The are never ranked very high and they never sign the big free agent guys. What gives?
(Paul Reiger from Bay)
The most precise answer is the draft. Their farm systems haven't ranked high because their top draft picks since 2006 -- Lincecum, Bumgarner, Posey -- haven't spent a lot of time in the minors. . John Barr has done a good job, especially considering he's not simply the domestic scouting director but the one who oversees the international front, too. Barr's first draft was 2008 (Posey, Crawford, Surkamp), but in '09 he drafted Zack Wheeler (traded for Carlos Beltran), Tommy Joseph (traded n the deal to land Hunter Pence) and Belt. Brian Wilson and Sergio Romo were also draftees. Romo a 28th rounder in 2005.

It also helps that Bruce Bochy runs a goldilocks clubhouse and they have leaders (Posey, Pence, Wilson) that don't allow things to crumble. (Jason A. Churchill)
2011-03-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Should we give any credit to the Giants for developing and keeping their star pitchers healthy? With all the words written about Moneyball and Billy Beane wasn't this same situation what really what made him look like a genius?
(EricJ from SF)
Absolutely, they should get credit, from the training staff to Bruce Bochy; it's the sort of basic logistical challenge every organization and every skipper has to deal with that trumps the value of any in-game machinations. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-04-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which GM will be the first to get canned this year? What about field manager? As a Giants fan yearning for a real rebuild, I'm desperately hoping the Brian Sabean/Bruce Bochy era ends yesterday. But if it's not these two, I'm still curious to hear who it will be. Bonus: Replacement candidates for these recently canned managers?
(Gregjitsu from Southern California (most unfortunately))
I really believe that Kevin Towers' time might be running short in San Diego. Anytime there is an ownership change, it's a possibility. He got put in a tough spot with Moores slashing the budget but there is still no excuse that you have to scour the waiver wire just to fill out a staff. That's because their farm system is terrible and that ultimately falls on the GM. As far as managers, as much as I like the guy, I think Manny Acta has to on thin ice for as horrible as his team is playing. It's not just that they're losing but they are playing like Little Leaguers. (John Perrotto)
2008-01-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)I continually hear that Lincecum should be considered for the super reliever role, 130-150IP. Is this a function of his size or that his stuff is better suited for such a role. Seems to me like he should be slotted as the #1 starter and left alone.
(Matt from Allisterisaprickville)
I agree with you. I always think an ace is the best role for a special talent, but if we can do though experiments (or even test this with a product like Diamond Mind), I'd like to see the relative value of both. That said, I don't see Bruce Bochy being the guy who'd both use someone in that role or effectively use a super-reliever.

I'd be much more interested in seeing Lincecum (and others) relieving on their throw day. That's a technique that's actually gaining some traction around baseball. (Will Carroll)
