The Giants are in the entertainment business. They just jettisoned perhaps their most entertaining, productive and admirable player from 2019. Welcome to baseball in the modern era, for better or worse. Story:

@JulesJeffs  Yeah, I addressed that in the story. They must be supremely confident that 1) Zaidi's long-term plan will be successful and 2) fans will return in droves once they win again. They do have the resources to weather a dropoff and then push in chips when they get closer to contending

Tyler Anderson, who was non-tendered by the Giants the other day, has agreed to a one-year contract with the club. (Yes, the arbitration process needs fixing.)

@sfgiantsphil  @BilbaoBrian  @hankschulmanO  @KO_Crowleyur  job has changed somewhat, going beyond the whos and wheres and whens. Analysis is essential, and it’s unavoidable that there will be some (light and presumably well informed) opinion baked into that.

Great piece from @david_j_roth  on the Astros and baseball's creep into soulless efficiency. Updated joke: What do you call 10,000 McKinsey consultants at the bottom of the ocean?

The best part of reading a @MarcCarig  @McCulloughTimes  co-byline is guessing who wrote what. Milk bag! CA

Kerry don’t freak out but there is a large furry caterpillar on your face.

The Giants and Dodgers were selected for ESPN Sunday Night Baseball on April 5 at Oracle Park. First pitch at 5:30 p.m. PDT. Giants and Dodgers also selected for a Thursday night telecast when the clubs open the second half July 16 at Chavez Ravine.

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.

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

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

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.”

Tim Lincecum is apparently: 1. Alive 2. Ripped 3. Doing baseball things 4. Hanging with Adam Ottavino.

Sandoval strikes out looking. At 0 for 38, he now owns the longest hitless streak in Giants' San Francisco-era history.
