Who We Are:
"This blog is dedicated first and foremost to the San Francisco Giants. Secondly it is devoted to the smearing and ripping of the most disgusting franchise in professional sports: The Los Angeles Dodgers. This blog operates in concert with Dodgerhater.net, a purveyor of fine anti-Dodgers Giants gear. Rock on and GO GIANTS!"

Thank you, Rich Aurilia
Who We Are:
"Frisco Fastball is the original San Francisco Giants blog on the FanSided Network. Our notoriety has grown thanks to our witty/humorous articles and mocking of San Francisco Giant players. It's all in fun though, so, if you like the Giants or enjoy living in the shadow of steroids, join us. Also? We despise Bruce Bochy with a passion. He probably kicked your dog while you were reading this. Twice. Oh, one more thing — PANDA!"

Who We Are: "As part of the Fanball Sports Network, Golden Gate Giants takes a look at the Giants through the eyes of a long-suffering fan, providing commentary, game analysis, and just about anything else you can think up. Our favorite topics include Bruce Bochy's giant head, Brian Sabean's mustache, why Fred Lewis(notes) is still in the Majors, Dusty Baker handing the game ball to Russ Ortiz(notes) during Game 6, and Marvin Benard's $11 million contract extension. Come share the joy and the misery ... but mostly, the misery."
