Giants claim lefty Tyler Anderson off waivers from Colorado, announce reliever Kyle Barraclough was designated for assignment.

The Nationals would out-pitch the Astros the first two games and grind to a World Series title, as someone I know said in this pre-World Series podcast.

Check final line of this @hankschulman  mailbag, published last week, to see who Giants' new manager will be:

Rising #SFGiants  infield prospects featuring Marco Luciano, a real deal, and why they're loading up on shortstops again (second in a three-part series on the farm system):

Now that baseball season is over, it’s hoops season. And wouldn’t you know it? Steph Curry broke his left hand: via @sfchronicle  @Con_Chron 

I'm told Mark Kotsay definitely is out of the running for the Giants' managing job. So don't be surprised if your 2020 manager is Joe Espada, Pedro Grifol or Gabe Kapler. Farhan Zaidi likes them all. #sfgiants

Congratulations to my good friend and partner @hankschulman , who was inducted tonight into the Jewish Sports Hall of Fame of Northern California. Oh, so was Joc Pederson.

Hearing Giants about to trade Matt Moore or Hunter Pence (or both) to clear up payroll space and that a deal is done pending a physical.

Giants trading Matt Moore to Texas for prospects. Deal pending physical.

Scully; "One hundred and thirty-three pitches and a blooper to right, and so it goes in this great game. It seemed almost unfair."

Giants will retire Barry Bonds' number 25 in an Aug. 11 ceremony. Pirates will be in town. There you go. Wall of Fame. Retired number. Will we see a statue next?

Mo'ne Davis throws out first pitch. Was asked to throw from front of mound. Instead walks to top of mound, throws fastball for strike.

I can confirm Pablo Sandoval deal with #redsox  is done pending physical and that it should be announced shortly. #sfgiants  need 3Bman.

Whoops. The Freeze came all the way to the All-Star Game to beat some guy in a race ... and lost.

Scully's final sign-off: "I have said enough for a lifetime. And for the last time, I wish you all a very pleasant good afternoon."
