Greek Giant

Andrew Baggarly was the first to report all the official hirings of the coaching staff for the Giants Minor League system:

There are interesting names on the list, including one Dan Runzler who was called up to make his Major League debut for the Giants on the same day as Buster Posey.

Reno Jim: Rest In Peace

Two days the TWG family lost one of its own. I read the news of Reno Jim’s passing with great sadness. I looked forward to his many posts. He was usually the first to post with a hearty “Gooooood Morning Giants Fans! greeting. It was such a small little thing that said so much about the man. These little greetings made me smile. I hope someone from Jim’s family reads this and understands how much we will all miss him, how grateful we were for his contributions and how much better he made our blog and our discussions. My condolences to his family. We will remember Reno Jim always.
