I'm still on a baseball high from last year. Before the 2010 season, if you would have asked me if I would take an amazing postseason run and World Series win in exchange for missing the playoffs the next year, I would have laughed in your face. Of course that's not a necessary tradeoff that teams must make in order to win a championship, but I'm still happy to be rooting for the reigning World Champions even during a mediocre season.

Plus, this season wasn't completely miserable. The Giants will likely finish the year as an average-performing team playing in a generally below-average division. There were some really enjoyable things that happened: Aubrey Huff hit three home runs in a game, Schierholtz went nuts for awhile, the Giants won the season series against the Dodgers including a 10-0 win in LA, they took a series in Philly, Lincecum and Cain will likely finish the season with sub-3 ERA's, and Ryan Vogelsong was an All Star.

I'd be worried if the team was made up of nothing but old guys or players entering free agency, but the core of the team are guys who are going to be good for a long, long time: Lincecum, Cain, Bumgarner, Pablo, Posey, Belt, Wilson, Romo.

And you could always do what I do during the evenings now.

The Science of Hitting is a fantastic book filled with anecdotes, personal stories and great advice from one of the best hitters to ever play baseball. Even if you have zero intention of ever swinging a baseball bat you should read this because it is just damn good.

On the fiction side I just finished Castro's Curveball. Pretty entertaining. Kind of an alternative history story.

My secret Santa sent me the book 1954 which I will start today. I love Bill Madden so it should be a good read.

Baggs' A Band of Misfits is a great read. I would say support him of course, but if money is an issue, it's probably on some torrent somewhere. If you haven't read the full San Francisco Giants wiki page, that's probably worth it to, along with wiki pages on our best players of all time, like Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Christy Mathewson, John McGraw, Bill Terry, Mel Ott, Carl Hubbell, Monte Irvin, Juan Marichal, Orlando Cepeda, Gaylord Perry, etc. and some of the most successful Giants seasons.

"Hey Boch"


"Let's say there's a runner on third"


"And you have Buster Posey up at the plate"


"Would you rather have Posey try to get a hit or try to produce an out"

"well, i would rather take the hit"

"Wait, really?

"yeah. we only have twenty-seven outs in a game, so each one is precious. a hitter should ALWAYS be trying to get on base"

"Yeah, but in this situation there's a runner at third"

"and? a hitter should NEVER be trying to get himself put out"

Also, I've only seen Moneyball once and thought it was a pretty mediocre movie. They got rid of the actual baseball analysis (that definitely would have bored most people) and added a ridiculous conflict between Art Howe and Billy Beane that never existed.

Look, dude, I get it: hearing that the VAST majority of people in the field are realizing that your way of thinking is wrong is a SCARY thought; you've believed something to be true most of your life and all of a sudden other people are telling you with OBJECTIVE ANALYSIS that you are OBJECTIVELY WRONG. The good news is that it's not too late for you to open yourself up to the GOOD NEWS. Do yourself a favor: pick up this book

give it an honest chance (it's well-written on top of being informative) and open yourself up to the idea that people like Andrew Friedman (who turned the Rays into a perennial cellar dweller to contenders) and Theo Epstein (literally ended the two longest droughts in MLB history) know what the fuck they're talking about.

Not a film adaption per se, but I'm looking forward to this tv series adaptation starring Benedict Cumberbatch :) I finished watching recently a terrific HBO/BBC miniseries from 2012 called Parade's End based on a tetralogy of novels by Ford Madox Ford.

Yeah definitely a classic. Just to clarify I'm definitely not saying that clutch is a real or important thing, as it has never been statistically proven so. However, the biggest finding in most of these studies (the one I'm thinking of is unfortunately not available online) is the correlationship between performing well in high leverage situations and patience at the plate. So to reiterate, it's not that I think Belt is clutch as much as I think that a player with Belt's approach should continue to do well in high leverage situations.

Whenever I am at the park, I bring This with me. My gf also has one, its cheap and very good. Only problem with the AtBat app is how delayed the plays are. With the radio I can hear KNBR on every play. Its great.

Just finished this book and it's pretty good! I look forward to using it as a referential tool.

And now I'm starting this..

Anyone ever read it?

lets go Pence.

u/StevoTheGreat · 4 pointsr/SFGiants

I'll be wearing something similar to this tomorrow.I feel like it's all in good fun. But there's assholes on both sides for sure.

u/randomness12 · 2 pointsr/SFGiants

Forgot I had this, but now this is my only stream.

Edit: For anyone interested in this contingency plan, it's only 11 bucks on Amazon.

u/Vaufe · 3 pointsr/SFGiants

Amazon carries them -- Linked is 2010, but from there the 2012 and 2014 are easily located.

u/BombsInTheBay · 1 pointr/SFGiants

If your interested in Giants history you can also check out this book.

u/sabat · 2 pointsr/SFGiants

If you're the bookish type, this book is very much worth reading.

u/stfudvs · 1 pointr/SFGiants

I run my dishwasher empty with the hat in one of these then air dry in the case, works very well

u/DJ_Loaf_Sword · 2 pointsr/SFGiants

I received this book, an SF pullover windbreaker, a poster of At&t Park, and a leather Giants wallet. Soo pumped!

u/MadeUAcctButIEatedIt · 2 pointsr/SFGiants

At first I lol'd but then after he shouted her out I realized he's referring to this series of children's books by Amy G.

u/justin_tino · 4 pointsr/SFGiants

Random find: I was looking for some Giants related Christmas gifts and I found out Amy G wrote a children's book about baseball

This last week I watched Everest about the 1996 Mt. Everest tragedy and I've been obsessed with it since.

I've watched 3 documentaries about it and currently reading/listening to Into Thin Air

Pretty haunting to be stranded at the peak of the world (29,000 feet high. For perspective, planes cruise around 33,000 feet high) where the air is so thin and lacking oxygen but you're trekking up near-vertical terrain in -10^o F temperature. Then a storm comes and you're hours from camp. You can't stop or you'll freeze to death but you can't see because everything is white.
