The winds at AT&T Park make playing a game there sometimes challenging. Right field, especially, creates its own unique environment, with an odd-shaped brick wall and the swirling gusts that come off McCovey Cove. New Giants right fielder Andrew McCutchen, who has played 28 games at AT&T Park as a visitor -- albeit in center field -- appears ready for it.

Samardzija refining curve, changeup deliveries

Fri, 9 Mar 2018 21:25:09 EDT

Brandon Crawford bobbled the first ground ball hit to him Monday, Joey Gallo's first-inning smash that found the Giants shortstop playing a few paces to the right-field side of second base in an overshifted alignment.

Giants who will shape NL West race

Wed, 28 Feb 2018 09:13:46 EDT

If you can believe it, Opening Day is only four weeks away, and we're previewing each division every Wednesday. Baseball is an individual sport masquerading as a team sport, so, thus, we'll be previewing each division by counting down the 20 most pivotal players in the division.
