The 2019 NBA Draft will take place tomorrow night. Most of the buzz around the draft is centered on Zion Williamson, who is being touted as the best prospect since LeBron James. However, I have essentially stopped watching any college basketball, preferring instead the NBA. Therefore, I don’t have opinions for this coming draft. I […]

Hoops I Did It Again!

The NBA’s contract rules are slowly letting smaller market teams keep their stars long term by allowing them to spend over the cap for a homegrown player. The league also experienced a cap spike in 2016 due to a new TV deal, and now, many teams are stuck with unmovable contracts on mediocre, average players. […]

You didn’t think I’d let another NBA Draft pass by without me attempting to evaluate and rank players, did you? I used the same methodology to rank players this year as I did last. I tried my best to grade players out of three categories: 10 points each for ceiling (C), floor (F), and personality […]

[dfm_iframe src=”https://apps.mercurynews.com/newsletters-signup/?campaign=giants-hq” width=”100%” height=”220px” allowfullscreen=”yes” scrolling=”yes” /] LOS ANGELES — With National League ERA leader Hyun-Jin Ryu and second-year flame-thrower Walker Buehler on staff, the Dodgers have an embarrassment of riches atop their rotation. Veterans Kenta Maeda and Rich Hill add solid depth while relievers Ross Stripling, Julio Urias and Caleb Ferguson have all enjoyed past success as members of the starting rotation. It doesn’t matter who is or isn’t in the Dodgers rotation at any given point during the season. The Giants would rather face anyone but Clayton Kershaw. “It’s been the same his whole career,” catcher Buster Posey said. “He just does a good of not missing on the plate much, he changes speeds and he knows how to pitch as well as anyone in the game.” The three-time Cy Young Award winner is the richest and the most capable of providing the embarrassment and he did so again Tuesday, shutting down the Giants (31-40) in a 9-0 blowout defeat for San Francisco. Kershaw tossed seven innings of three-hit ball, earning his 23rd win in 46 starts over the Giants. He lowered his career ERA against the Giants to 1.68 and again left the Giants wondering how much time the 12th-year veteran has left on the mound. “We didn’t do much with Kershaw,” manager Bruce Bochy said. “It’s always tough sledding going against him.” Even when Kershaw does decide to hang up his cleats years from now, it wouldn’t surprise anyone in the Giants dugout if he could throw quality innings while barefoot against his rivals in San Francisco. Kershaw’s first scoreless start of seven innings since July 18, 2017 and a seventh-inning onslaught from the Dodgers’ offense overshadowed a decent outing for Giants rookie Shaun Anderson, who was off the mound by the time Los Angeles flexed its remarkable depth. The Dodgers’ offense torched a pair of Giants relievers in the seventh as Derek Holland surrendered two runs before Trevor Gott gave up a grand slam to Joc Pederson’s defensive replacement in left field, Kiké Hernández. “Gott’s been throwing so well, this is his toughest outing, his worst outing,” Bochy said. “He’s really been good for us.” In one inning on Tuesday, the Dodgers scored six runs. In two games this series, the Giants have seven hits. Anderson’s streak of three consecutive quality starts to open the month of June was snapped Tuesday as he finished one out shy of logging six innings. After allowing two first-inning runs, Anderson tossed four scoreless before three Dodgers hits in the sixth including a RBI bunt single from Chris Taylor interrupted his bid to finish his night on a positive note. Anderson has proven to be among the Giants most reliable starters over the last three weeks, but even he isn’t immune to the first-inning troubles that have ailed the rotation all season. The Giants have now been outscored 68-19 in the first inning this season and eight of the 19 runs Anderson has allowed this year have come before half the fans have found their seats. “It all comes down to execution,” Anderson said. “I don’t think I executed pitches in the first inning and they got to them, obviously. I just have to keep the same mentality throughout the game and after that first run scored, I’ve got to make sure another one doesn’t score.” In seven starts this year, Anderson has allowed seven earned runs in the first and just 11 earned runs in the other 31 2/3 innings he’s pitched. Of the five homers the University of Florida product has allowed, four have been launched into the stands in the first inning. “Once he gets through that, he settles down,” Bochy said. “He gets his good command. That happens a lot with pitchers. He gave up a home run there, a couple of other hits, but after that, I thought he pitched well. He gave us a chance.” After Pederson sent Anderson’s second pitch of the night over the left center field wall, the Dodgers added to their advantage eight pitches later as third baseman Justin Turner pulled a double into the left field corner to score center fielder Alex Verdugo. The Giants’ best opportunity to tie the score at 2-2 came in the sixth against Kershaw when left fielder Tyler Austin launched a flyball deep into right center field. The ball sent outfielder Cody Bellinger scampering toward the warning catch, but he leaped up and snagged it in front of the wall to help Kershaw escape trouble. Austin’s 371-foot flyout likely needed about three additional feet to sail over Bellinger’s glove and above the fence, but it was one of the lone swings worth remembering from an otherwise dreadful night for the Giants.
