Giants sign Ted Lilly

Wonder what it means, if anything, for the rotation of Cain/madbum/timmy/gaudin/vogelsong

Who the Giants should trade away at the deadline (Lincecum, Scutaro, AND SANDOVAL)

The Giants have hit a slide of epic proportions. They stand to make an even worse title defense than they did in 2011, when they scored the least runs of any defending champion. As they sit now, the Giants are 10 games out of first place, and are currently on a 4 game losing streak, this season looks as bleak as ever and it may be time for GM Brian Sabean to start trading away their veterans. Although the Giants are notorious for never entering a ‘true rebuild’ mode, this could be the year they ship off a ton of assets with the hopes of restocking their minor league system.

Giants signed 16-yr-old Dominican SS Kelvin Beltre

Per Henry Schulman "Baseball America reports Giants signed 16-yr-old Dominican SS Kelvin Beltre for $650,000. That's about 1/3 of Giants' slot pool of $1.9m."

Kyle Crick strikes out 10 (again)

It's technically a downgrade considering two starts ago he struck out 10 in four innings. It took him six innings this time. The kid can only do so much.

Joe Ritzo: Angel Villalona has been promoted to AA Richmond.

Villalona hit .229 with 14 HR and 42 RBI in 73 games with SJ Villalona overcame a 2-for-41 start this season to make the Cal League All-Star team. Hit .263 w/8 HR in May, slumped to .215 in June.

Giants' director of social media doing an AMA

The Giants' director of social media is Bryan Srabian. No, that does not get old. Yes, he is a pretty interesting cat with a pretty interesting job. He's also been very, very good to McCovey Chronicles, and the Giants are one of the more progressive teams in baseball when in comes to reaching out to us unwashed heathens on the Internet. Now you can ask him anything! Whether he answers it is a different story, but he's doing a Reddit Ask Me Anything at 11:00 a.m. PT on Friday. Think of a good question, and head on over. "Uh, so, like, has anyone ever told you your name is like ... you know ..."

Kyle Crick strikes out 10 in 4 innings

Speaks for itself. Kyle Crick had 12 outs on Friday night ... 10 were strikeouts, 2 were pickoffs. Video of all 10 strikeouts plus Panda's home run with San Jose, all here.

Help JFK's Quote of the Day:

Hello, I’m jrockies and a member of Purple Row. Every day I post a baseball related quote to the site noted as "JFK’s Quote of the Day." I have, however, come up with a problem. Most of the quotes I have are from former players/coaches (Berra, Mayes, Hornsby, Peter Uueberroth, etc.) or older authors and sports writers (Boswell, Russell Baker, Kahn, etc.) and I don’t have many from players and writers of today’s period. As an attempt to build my list of quotes I have decided to ask the different baseball communities around SBNation to help me out. I don’t get to read local articles for non-Denver teams very often and I know that players have said something wise/funny/absurd that should be remembered somewhere ("These are thin mints. I put them in the freezer. My favorites. So good." ~Reds outfielder Adam Dunn, on the Girl Scout cookies he keeps in his locker) So here is the challenge: In the comments section post your all-time favorite baseball quotes (I don’t have all of them) and your favorite quotes you’ve heard from around the league in recent years. For the next two weeks I will post my quote of the day in the comments here. Thanks, jrockies JFK
