  1. Sell high on Tim Lincecum, if you can

    Eric Karabell

    Let's get two things out of the way right away, and I assure you I have no reason to be biased either for or against San Francisco Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum or the woeful team he no-hit Wednesday, the San Diego Padres: • Sell high on ...

  2. What to do with Joey Votto

    Eric Karabell

    The Cincinnati Reds lost another close game Wednesday, as San Francisco Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong -- not exactly Roger Clemens -- registered a career-best nine strikeouts in a 3-2 win, and they're now closer to last place in the NL Central t...

    Eric Karabell

    Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp is expected to make his season debut in center field Friday night against the San Francisco Giants, and from what I've read he's feeling pretty confident he's healthy and ready to resume his productive ways. F...

  4. Opening Day closer shake-ups

    Eric Karabell

    If the first full day of the 2014 major league season is any indication, it's going to be a ridiculous season for big league closers, more so than normal. In a span of a few hours Monday there was one news item after another affecting the crazy world...

  5. Bits: Hunter Pence joins 20-20 club

    Eric Karabell

    Once upon a time back in March, San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence made my list of players I liked more than my colleagues did, and thus was more likely to end up with on my teams. My argument on Pence was simple: He was an established prov...

  6. Disappointing Sandoval homers thrice

    Eric Karabell

    San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval is listed on his player card at 240 pounds, and perhaps that's accurate, but I'm taking the over. Kung Fu Panda, as he is affectionately known, has battled weight issues in the past, and it's likely a...

  8. Bits: Thoughts on Pence, Gallardo ...

    Eric Karabell

    Two San Francisco Giants outfielders were 13th-round picks, on average, in ESPN standard drafts for this season, which surprised me a bit. One was Hunter Pence, who I thought was seriously underrated on draft day. He made my top 100, and while I didn...

  9. Realistic expectations for Gerrit Cole

    Eric Karabell

    It would be a waste of time to look for faults in Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander Gerrit Cole's big league debut. He took a four-hit, no-walk shutout into the seventh inning at PNC Park against the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night, with a larger...

  10. Bits: Giants' injuries, new Dodgers closer

    Eric Karabell

    Tuesday was not a good day for the San Francisco Giants. Before having to face hard-throwing Pittsburgh Pirates rookie phenom Gerrit Cole in his debut, the Giants placed third baseman Pablo Sandoval on the disabled list because of a strained left foo...

  11. Five things to watch this weekend

    Eric Karabell

    The first-place Cleveland Indians strode into Fenway Park on Thursday night to face the Boston Red Sox, which normally wouldn't be significant but the return of Tribe skipper Francona to the place he managed to two World Series titles in his eight-ye...

    Eric Karabell

    Four of the AL East teams will be facing off head-to-head this mid-May weekend, with the Tampa Bay Rays traveling to Baltimore and the mighty Vernon Wells-led New York Yankees hosting the last-place-but-hot Toronto Blue Jays. The other team is the Bo...

  13. What to do about Matt Cain?

    Eric Karabell

    By the second inning of Thursday night's game between the San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies, the concerned, panicked and, let's face it, angry tweets about right-hander Matt Cain started flowing in consistently. Cain allowed three home runs e...

  14. Can we still believe in Eric Hosmer?

    Eric Karabell

    Heading into Thursday's games, plenty of players with 100 at-bats this season had yet to hit a home run, but the names read like a who's who of powerless singles hitters, from Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus to San Francisco Giants infielder Mar...

  15. Bits: Zito getting the job done at home

    Eric Karabell

    I'm not quite sure how San Francisco Giants left-hander Barry Zito does it, since his stuff seems pretty average -- OK, perhaps below average -- but there he was on center stage Wednesday afternoon mowing down the Philadelphia Phillies at AT&amp...
