San Francisco Giants Link Dump, 11/26

The other links in a dump

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

You know what was really good? Bryan's post from yesterday. If you didn't read it, go read it now. If you did read it, go read it again. Or don't. You can make your own decisions.

Edit: This is Grant. Just pointing out that groug never singles out my posts and that he's on thin ice. Back to the links.

Kevin Frandsen Wants Nationals Fans to Know they were ‘Louder’ than Giants Fans
We've always known that Kevin Frandsen felt mistreated by the Giants organization, and now he's lashing out. In a savage attack on the fanbase, the team, and the city of San Francisco, Frandsen has called into question the loyalty of Giants fans, and thus, the talent level and character of the Giants. If we are to curtail this aggressive behavior, there's only one move to make: We have to burn down Bellarmine High. Your move, Kevin.


Giants think big post Panda: Upton, Tomas, Cruz, even Scherzer on menu
THEY'RE EVEN TALKING TO MELKY. Sure, Hank basically denied it, but I know an entertaining nugget in an otherwise informative story that I can blow out of proportion when I see one. So if they're talking to Melky, which they're not, then that means the Giants are out on Tomas, which they're also not. And assuming they can pry Headley away from the Yankees, which is based on nothing, they should still have room in the budget for James Shields, who will come to San Francisco solely because I want him to.

I'm gettin' pretty good at rosterbation, y'all. Pretty good.


The Effects of Pitch Sequencing
Data! Facts! Science! If you wanted a study on whether or not going fastball-changeup was effective, then you're in luck. That study was called "Jason Schmidt when Jason Schmidt was great" and he proved it beyond a doubt. If you wanted something like that, but with less strikeouts and more tables, you get this article. Something for everyone!


How Twitter Has Changed Baseball Coverage, for Better or Worse, 140 Characters at a Time
When baseball writers hear about breaking news, do you think they rush to Twitter to immediately tweet whatever hacky joke came to mind? That's what I do, and it seems to work out pretty well. I mean, Neko Case has responded to me on Twitter multiple times. If that's not success, I don't know what is.


The 15 Worst Owners in Sports
I'm always happy to link things about how awful owners are, not only because the scumminess and general boobitude of owners should be remembered, but also to illustrate how good the Giants' ownership group is. I know we all want them to tuck millions of dollars in every free agent's jockstrap like a drunk John Henry (MISS U PABLO), but they spend lots of money, hire good people, and aren't embarrassing. That's winning the owner lottery.
