"Why I subscribed to the Chronicle..." (But seriously, this two-year offer is a great deal. #subscribed )

CSNBA is airing the 2013 Lincecum no-hitter, and because what I wrote for them that night is no longer on their site, I'll include it here. Apologies for the micro-fine print.

Giants RHP Tyler Beede was thoughtful when I asked him about his decision to undergo Tommy John surgery and what constitutes a "medically necessary procedure" right now -- and he shared how the coronavirus is impacting his family in a direct way:

#SFGiants CEO Larry Baer outlined a program for stadium workers. The Giants will supplement the $1 million each team is donating with additional $700,000 from the ownership board.

The Giants’ $1.7 million pledge is the most among MLB teams thus far — and they are aware that it won’t be nearly enough if the season is lost. They anticipate raising more money from their ownership group to help stadium workers offset lost wages.

@RodneyFort  @TheAthleticBIZIt’s not. Giants were using an earnings benchmark of a month or so, which is a couple homestands, and assuming lost wages will be partially covered by state/federal unemployment benefits. As it becomes clear a greater share (or all) of the schedule will be lost, they’ll do more.

Trying not to be *that guy* to point out that Buster played in, like, a dozen games between 1990-2009. 🤨

@RaffoneCoach  @GrantWahlWhy  don't you focus on being less of an ass? He's not a content robot to service you at your whim. He's a writer with a family to provide for. And his tweet wasn't political in the slightest! (Although even if it was, he'd have every right to post that, too.)

@annkillion  Delicious! We blended some young pea sprouts from the garden for an early version of one of our favorite spring cocktails, the peatini. Gin, vodka, Lillet, lemon, pea essence, homemade yerba buena simple syrup.

‘Hard to pull off’: Players want baseball back, but some question Arizona idea

This is sure to inspire a ton of reaction: The Giants have informed Aubrey Huff, their top offensive player from the legendary 2010 World Series team, that he will not be invited to participate in anniversary celebrations this year. Our exclusive story:

Peavy said Bum was calm in a crazy dugout after Gillaspie HR. Bum simply walked up and said, "Conor, I appreciate the hell out of that."

Bumgarner on Puig’s homer on a fastball in: “He’s a quick study. It only took him seven years to learn how to hit that pitch.”

Baseball is worried about losing young fans because of pace of play? How about a third of the teams not trying to win? Ask a Pirates fan today if they're concerned about pace of play.

Bumgarner will hit tomorrow. First time a manager intentionally gives up the DH since 1976

I reached out to Joe Panik for a statement. Here's what he wanted to express. A classy person, and a privilege to know.

There’s a generation of Braves and Cubs fans from all over. Know why? BECAUSE PEOPLE COULD WATCH THE GAMES. If baseball isn’t affordable and accessible, then it is hurtling toward its extinction as a major sport. No matter how much they futz with the rules.

Bumgarner: “I can’t even say it with a straight face but the more I think about it, I should just let the kids play. But I just ... I can’t. ... They want to let everybody be themselves, then let me be myself. That’s me.”
