The Giants to wear gold-trimmed caps and jerseys for their ring ceremony

24 Comments

The Cardinals wore stuff like this for their ring ceremony last year. Now the Giants are doing it. I didn’t much care for it then and still don’t. Seems so every St. Louis Rams of them. Or, more to the point, a cash grab for more cap sales:

All that said, kinda surprised that we only have one black and gold team in all of baseball. It’s a good combo.

The Twins have informed reliever Glen Perkins they will not pick up his 2018 club option worth $6.5 million, MLB.com’s Rhett Bollinger reports. Instead, he will be paid $700,000 per his buyout clause.

Perkins, 34, has pitched a total of 7 2/3 innings over the last two seasons due to shoulder and biceps injuries. Bollinger adds that the two could come to terms on a minor league deal, but if they can’t reach an agreement, the lefty is likely to retire.

From 2011-15, Perkins emerged as one of the better relievers in baseball, making three All-Star teams. He compiled an aggregate 2.84 ERA with 340 strikeouts and 73 walks across 313 1/3 innings.
