Weirdness after the jump.
You may have noticed — the three of you that read this website — that we’ve been down for a few days. The reason: hackers. Dirty, dirty hackers. Sometime around 10/10/11 malicious code was inserted into some server files that help run the blogging software that we use here at BCB. The result was a script that tried to redirect… Read more →
I’d like to welcome our newest site contributor, Chris Martinez. If you’ve been reading up on the Giants’ minor league system the last few years, chances are you’ve read some of Chris’ work. She has written for SFDugout (now defunct, sadly) and she has covered minor league baseball for MILB.com. I’m excited to get the chance to add someone to… Read more →
There’s another place you can catch the Bay City Ball writing staff, and that’s on Twitter. Do yourself a favor and give us a follow. Chris Quick (@BayCityBall), while riffing on the Giants’ “offense,” will say stuff like… He also has a tendency to get really excited when he hears the word “graph,” similar to the way Dug the Talking… Read more →

A quick update: I haven’t shutdown the site for the offseason, but I am in the middle of a couple of things. Expect updates to begin again by tomorrow. I’ve got some things in the pipeline that I’m hoping everyone will enjoy. Thanks for bearing with me.
Dear readers, I’ll be away from BCB for the next week or so because of vacation. I’ll be, as they say, going off-the-grid at least until next Friday. Looking forward to catching up on my summer reading (Catch-22 by Joseph Keller and a short story collection of sci-fi legend Philip K. Dick). In the meantime, feel free to watch all… Read more →
I’ll be posting some Lincecum thoughts later today but I wanted to give a quick update on Bay City Ball. You’ll notice a new nav-bar at the top of this website. I’ve been asked by Rob Neyer of ESPN to join the ‘SweetSpot Network’ — a collection of baseball bloggers covering, eventually, every team in baseball. You can read Rob’s… Read more →
