    World Series: After Too Damn Much Ado, Giants Crowned Kings

    Today it took the San Francisco Giants two and a half hours to roll from the Embarcadero to City Hall. And you can't blame Muni.

    San Francisco Giants 2012 World Series Drinking Game

    Seeing-eye singles, elimination games, Madison Bumgarner. In Giants baseball, before the joy comes the anguish and anxiety.

    The Franchise Episode 3 Recap: Got Heem!

    ​Over the past few weeks, I've complained that The Franchise has too often focused on establishing and teasing out narratives rather than using their access to its best advantage.

    Pat Burrell -- The Machine? -- Back in Giants' Fold

    Straight out of left field...​We're making an honest effort to not write a story every time the World Champion San Francisco Giants rejigger their lineup with a player transaction. You probably won't see the words "arbitration" or "Mike Fontenot" here for a while. But the resigning of Pat "The Bat ... More >>

    Machine for Mayor -- Why Not? Here's Why Not.

    'This city needs discipline,' reads the shirt​We've had great fun with Giants closer Brian Wilson's obsession with "The Machine" -- and the gimp mask-outfitted imaginary killer's odd entrance into San Francisco politics.  It seems, however, there is someone having more fun with us.

    Extreme Bargain Hunting at Giants Dugout Store

    ​When a big-, moderate-, or even small-time Giants player washes out, it's bad news for him and his fans. But for you -- it's a bargain in disguise.
