    This was a no-brainer. Saquon Barkley was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his dynamic opening weekend performance in a 21-20 Giants win over the Tennessee Titans in Nashville. Barkley rushed for 164 yards on 18 carries (9.1 yards per carry), caught a team-high six passes for 30 yards, and added a 4-yard TD run and a game-winning two-point conversion to his 194 yards from scrimmage. His 164 rushing yards and 194 yards from scrimmage both lead the league after the opening week of games. Barkley’s 68-run in the early third quarter, with the Giants trailing 13-0, set the table for his touchdown and changed the game. He then made a couple defenders miss with 1:06 remaining to convert a Daniel Jones shovel pass for two points to give the Giants their late one-point lead. The 164 rushing yards was the third-highest total of his career. Barkley ran for a career-high 189 yards on Dec. 22, 2019 and 170 yards on Dec. 9, 2018, both on the road at Washington’s FedEx Field.

    DAVID DE GEA is on course for Manchester United’s Player of the Year award yet again. But that normally does not bode well for the club’s Premier League standing come May. 1David De Gea was superb as United won 3-1 at BrentfordCredit: Richard Pelham / The Sun Winning the Sir Matt Busby gong in 2014, 2015 and 2016 followed league positions of 7th, 4th and 5th. They bucked the trend in 2018 by finishing 2nd as De Gea triumphed for a fourth time – although 19 points behind winners Manchester City can hardly be celebrated. You would not put it past United following suit with a lowly finish this year either. It must sound like a broken record to United fans who have suffered watching dross after dross donning their badge year after year, but where would this club be without De Gea? Once more his performance sees the Red Devils avoid yet another mini crisis with several world class saves that denied Brentford heading into the break three or four goals ahead. And that is no exaggeration. United –...
    Before Game 1 of the National League Division Series between the 107-win Giants and 106-win Dodgers, I snagged a few moments with Giants general manager Scott Harris on the field at Oracle Park. The 34-year-old Harris — a native of Redwood City — is in his second season as the Giants’ GM and his first with the organization playing games at every level. I wanted to know what he’ll be doing during games, how busy his phone is with long-lost friends looking for tickets, and how the organization is looking top-to-bottom heading into one of the great postseason matchups in baseball history. Harris is a diplomat by nature. He was hired, in part, to be a face of the franchise. He’s too savvy to dig himself or anyone else any holes. You might pick up some of that spin in his answers. But when it comes to the stuff he really enjoys and can speak candidly about — the nitty-gritty of running a baseball team — and he lights up and will gladly talk for hours....

New Orleans began the year away from their home stadium in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, but now have the all-clear to head back and will do so with a 2-1 record. Meanwhile, the Giants will head down to New Orleans in hopes of finding their first win of the season as they've begun the year 0-3.

It was just the eighth time a Braves player hit for the cycle in the franchise's history. Rosario doubled in the second inning, tripled in the fifth, homered in the seventh and singled in the ninth to become the second Braves player this season to reach the mark. First baseman Freddie Freeman hit for the cycle on Aug. 18.

    DENVER — At the end of spring training, Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi acknowledged there was still one hole he needed to fill on the club’s 40-man roster. With Mauricio Dubón expected to earn most of his playing time in the outfield, the Giants still didn’t have enough shortstop depth behind starter Brandon Crawford. The void wasn’t necessarily glaring, but an injury to Crawford or Dubón could have quickly exposed the Giants at one of the most important positions on the diamond. It took two weeks for Zaidi to address the issue, but his decision to acquire Thairo Estrada continues to pay dividends. With two more home runs on Monday at Coors Field in a 10-5 Giants win, Estrada is quietly establishing himself as a potential building block for the Giants’ future. The 25-year-old utility man has spent most of the season at Triple-A Sacramento, but in 110 at-bats with the major league club, Estrada has posted a .791 OPS, picked up 20 RBIs and played solid defense at both shortstop and second base. ...
    Like a skilled chess player, Giants President of Baseball Operations Farhan Zaidi makes his moves with future ones in mind, calculating potential positions and monitoring others to strike when the opportunity presents itself. That is what led him to 30-year-old outfielder Mike Tauchman, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound outfielder who grew up in Illinois playing high school football against 49ers’ quarterback Jimmy Garappolo and spent the last two and a half years as a reserve bat for the New York Yankees. On April 27, Zaidi moved his pieces to acquire the Yankee outfielder. “Tauchman is a guy we’ve had interest in for a while,” said Zaidi, in his third season overseeing the organization. “Kind of my entire time with the Giants. From an offensive standpoint, Tauchman’s approach at the plate is his most attractive attribute, according to Zaidi. It’s ultimately what led the Giants to bring him to San Francisco for left-handed reliever Wandy Peralta and a player to be named later. An advanced feel for the strike zone has allowed Tauchman to see more pitches than...
    What an ideal 2021 NFL Draft would look like for the New York Giants By: Alexander Wilson April 5, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Giants have multiple holes they need to fill in the 2021 NFL draft, but what order they solve them is yet to be seen. With the ability to go best player available if they so choose, the Giants have interestingly been evaluating a wide variety of pass rushers, supposedly one they could select with the 11th overall pick or in a trade back scenario. The Giants feel confident that they have one of the best defenses in the NFL, and adding an above-average pass rusher would simply push them over the edge. Not only would they have an elite secondary with James Bradberry and Adoree Jackson manning the corners, but they would have a strong interior line, led by Leonard Williams who recently signed a three-year deal this off-season. Offensively, the Giants still need some support, specifically on the offensive line where they traded away starting right guard...
    SAN FRANCISCO — When Giants president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi and manager Gabe Kapler expressed their goals for the 2020 season, one of the greatest hopes the duo had was for an inexperienced outfielder to prove he could be a reliable, everyday major league player. Mike Yastrzemski didn’t take long to exceed those expectations. The Giants’ 2020 Willie Mac Award winner became the face of the club as the second-year outfielder willed the team into contention for a postseason berth. Yastrzemski received the Willie Mac Award on the field at Oracle Park prior to a Saturday matchup with the San Diego Padres that carries massive playoff implications. It seemed the award –which is presented annually to the Giants’ most inspirational player– was destined to end up in Yastrzemski’s hands after he built upon a phenomenal rookie season in 2019 to become an early National League MVP candidate. A dropoff in his second half numbers coupled with a right calf injury that kept him out of the Giants’ starting lineup for seven straight days robbed Yastrzemski of...
    On the day he was introduced as the head coach of the New York Football Giants, Joe Judge vowed he would deliver a team that would punch the opponent in the nose for 60 minutes. Four days from facing the rough and tough Steelers, four days from opening night, four days from the fulfillment of his head coaching dream, Mount Judge erupted. Because his vision of what he demands his New York Giants to be — smart, tough, fundamentally sound — he did not see. So the rookie coach stopped the music and punched his Giants in the nose with F-bombs flying after stretching and individual drills for what must have seemed to them like 60 minutes. He started practice over. Starting with the stretching. Because what he began to witness was not a team he wanted to represent the blue-collar people of the metropolitan area. But remember this about Judge: He has illustrated a Parcellsian knack for recognizing and understanding what makes each player tick. Just because he professes love for these players doesn’t mean he won’t be reluctant...
    Following an uncharacteristically quiet trade deadline for the San Francisco Giants, manager Gabe Kapler said he considered the organization’s lack of activity an “endorsement” of the 2020 club’s playoff chances. “It hasn’t been perfect,” Kapler said pregame. “Everybody knows that we’ve had some missteps along the way. But I think in general it’s an endorsement, and I’m glad to be here with this group today.” If the first 36 games weren’t perfect, Tuesday’s 23-5 win over the Colorado Rockies was as close as it gets. The Giants’ 23 runs were the most since the club scored as many against the Braves at Fulton County Stadium on June 8, 1990.

    SAN FRANCISCO — Veteran catcher Rob Brantly made the San Francisco Giants’ Opening Day roster, but he didn’t last long as Chadwick Tromp replaced the left-handed hitting Brantly less than a week into the regular season. Brantly was designated for assignment to create room for Tromp and ended up spending the last month at the Giants’ alternate camp in Sacramento, but the club announced Wednesday it found a new home for Brantly. The Giants have traded the 31-year-old catcher to the New York Yankees for cash considerations. The Giants felt comfortable with their catching depth moving forward as top prospect Joey Bart has ascended to the majors while Tromp is currently serving as his backup. The team’s Opening Day starter, Tyler Heineman, was optioned to the alternate camp to make room for Bart and has received praise for his professionalism and how he’s handled the demotion. Heineman and 2020 first round pick Patrick Bailey are the only catchers remaining at the Giants’ alternate camp, but trading Brantly creates an additional space in the team’s player pool ahead of the August...
    Blake Martinez Projected As The Most Improved New York Giant For 2020 By: Cay North July 24, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesThe New York Giants need some improvements in 2020. There’s no question about it after the team drafted in the top five again this year, but it remains to be seen where that improved production will come from. Will Saquon Barkley have a bounce back season and compete for MVP? Will James Bradberry step up and become a top corner in the league? Or will this be the real breakout season for Daniel Jones? According to NFL.com’s Cynthia Frelund, the most improved player on the Giants this year isn’t going to be any of those names, but rather Blake Martinez. With a big hit against the cap, most fans also expect such improvements at this point. Why the Giants will lean on Blake Martinez in 2020 The statistics say that Martinez was an active player with Green Bay in terms of tackling and getting...
    The San Francisco Giants waited until all 29 other teams announced their player pools before finally releasing the names of players on Monday who are expected to report to Oracle Park this week. The franchise’s 51-player pool, which features the organization’s top three prospects, will intrigue fans who are eager to learn more about some of the Giants’ most promising talent. Catcher Joey Bart, shortstop Marco Luciano and outfielder Heliot Ramos all ranked among the top 65 prospects in baseball by MLB.com, will join the Giants in San Francisco this week as players report for workouts ahead of the start of an anticipated 60-game season. 2019 first round draft choice Hunter Bishop was expected to be a part of the team’s pool, but was not announced as part of the initial list.

    New York Giants: Who will be the most improved player on offense in 2020? By: Alexander Wilson June 28, 2020 Follow ESM On Social Facebook Twitter Youtube Flipboard Instagram ShareTweet0 SharesOn paper, the New York Giants have a much-improved roster on both sides of the ball, but there will be weaknesses they have to iron out and refine as the season goes on. A rebuild takes time, and the Giants are currently in the middle of one. General manager Dave Gettleman made it a priority to fix the offensive line once and for all, but nothing is set in stone despite spending the fourth overall pick on Andrew Thomas. Nate Solder, who played left tackle for the Giants in 2019, struggled immensely, allowing 11 sacks, which ranked third-worst in the NFL. Improving this unit is essential, but there is one player that could explode in 2020 with new talent around him. The New York Giants are expecting big things from Will Hernandez: Left guard Will Hernandez is the player I’m referencing....
    Getty Dalvin Tomlinson (L) celebrates with Dexter Lawrence (R) after a sack Dexter Lawrence is a mountain of a man and one hell of a football player. Standing at 6-foot-4-inches and weighing in just a smidge below 350-pounds, the New York Giants standout has quickly bullied his way into the conversation of being the NFL’s most promising young interior d-lineman. However, with a new coach in town, one with ties to a previous organization who commonly uses players in multiple roles, could Lawrence potentially be taking his talents to the opposite side of the football in 2020? Giants.com’s John Schmeelk recently discussed this exact possibility after a fan wrote in about Joe Judge’s potential innovative use of Lawrence as a short-yardage/red-zone fullback on offense. While Schmeelk noted he wouldn’t hold his breath on Lawrence manning a role in the team’s backfield this season, he also refused to “put anything past Joe Judge’s creative mind,” adding he’s excited about the possibility. I’m not going to lie to you, Michael, you have me intrigued and a little excited. Is it possible?...

Photo:Han Myung-Gu / . The catcher of the Lotte Giants of the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) Ji Seong-jun, was indefinitely suspended from the team and will be subject to an investigation by the League, after being pointed out for sexual harassment towards a minor, as reported by the South Korean news agency Yonhap.

    Getty B.J. Hill #95 and R.J. McIntosh #90 of the New York Giants It’s pretty well renowned that the New York Giants‘ strongest position group is by far their defensive line. Put your feelings of Leonard Williams’ paycheck aside for just a moment, and you’ll quickly realize that your “franchise player” being arguably the third-best player along his unit is actually a positive in terms of communitive talent.  The talented ground headlined by Williams, as well as rising sophomore Dexter Lawrence and unheralded star Dalvin Tomlinson will spearhead a Giants front-seven looking to make major noise in the NFC East this season. However, that group may be adding another name in the near future, as a vastly more under-the-radar player is hoping to make a “big impact” along Big Blue’s defensive line in 2020.R.J. McIntosh Ready to Take Off in Year 3?R.J. McIntosh entered the NFL in 2018 as an extremely raw, yet tantalizing 5th-round prospect out of the University of Miami.

    For the first time in franchise history, the Giants have hired a full-time sports psychologist as part of an overhaul of their Player Engagement department. The move, coming this off-season, adds Dr. Lani Lawrence as the Giants director of wellness and clinical services, a newly-created role. Lawrence will also serve as the head of player engagement/development, working with Ashley Lynn, the current assistant director of player engagement. David Tyree, the Super Bowl 42 hero for his helmet catch against the previously-unbeaten Patriots, is no longer with the organization. Tyree spent the past six years as the Giants’ director of player engagement. Before Tyree held that role, another former Giants player, Charles Way, served as director. The organization this year has moved away from using former players in this role, concentrating on adding a professional well-versed in the many issues affecting players’ mental health and wellbeing. Tyree and his wife Leilah opened up a Clean Juice shop in Morristown, N.J. Clean Juice is an organic juice bar franchise. In the past, the Giants used sports psychologists in consultant roles, never as...

The story was the same across baseball as positive tests were reported elsewhere among the training facilities as outbreaks throughout Arizona and Florida surged....
