Pat Burrell, naked, soaking wet, holding beer


I’m not going to provide much more in the way of details. I’ll simply add that in the presence of the naked, soaking wet, beer-holding Pat Burrell was Aubrey Huff’s mom. If this interests you, just read this.

Bonus: it contains the phrase “Back in spring training, he couldn’t stop staring at teammate Nate Schierholtz’s washboard abs.”

Context is overrated. Just go with it.

Giants starter Jeff Samardzija will undergo an MRI on his ailing right shoulder, according to NBC Sports Bay Area. The right-hander struggled in a minor league game on Wednesday, surrendering a pair of home runs and hitting a batter. Overall this spring, Samardzija has given up 15 runs (13 earned) on 17 hits (six homers) and seven walks with seven strikeouts in 11 innings.

This may mean Samardzija won’t be ready for the start of the regular season. Derek Holland would likely replace Samardzija in the rotation. Holland had been competing for the No. 5 spot in the Giants’ rotation.

Samardzija led the National League in losses last season with 15, also posting a 4.42 ERA with a 205/32 K/BB ratio in a league-high 207 2/3 innings. Since becoming a starter, Samardzija has been able to avoid injury, making 32 or 33 starts in each of the last five seasons.
