Bay Area Sports Guy

Bay Area Sports Guy was my personal blog, which I ran from 2008 through 2017. After just two years it became the top independent sports site covering professional sports in the San Francisco Bay Area. BASG is not an ordinary fan blog. It's a place where sports news is broken and analyzed by writers with access who are not afraid to question the status quo, writers who also produce original content in the form of videos, photographs and podcasts.

Once the video of Larry Baer’s altercation with his wife, Pam, was posted online by TMZ last Friday, it was borderline impossible to watch and not immediately react, one way or another. Some of those reactions included harsh criticisms of the Giants CEO and leading public face for a franchise that, up until recently, had a front office that was held mostly in high regard.

Why Comcast and NBC haven't brought their 'A' game to Bay Area TV viewers

NBC Sports Bay Area could be so much more than ESPN Light. While I can see some logic in the decisions made by NBC Sports Bay Area, watching our region's only cable sports channel do the bare minimum is still disappointing. The network deserves credit for excellence in live event coverage.

Media Column: Busy week of changes at KNBR and 95.7 The Game

For the last several months, things have been pretty static at the two major Bay Area sports talk radio stations, and that’s not a reference to signal strength. Other than adding Bonnie-Jill Laflin to the morning show, where she can barely get a word in edgewise while Brian Murphy and Paul McCaffrey dominate the conversation, KNBR 680 has seemingly been content to sit tight as its ratings advantage has dwindled to the point where they’ve been finishing behind 95.7 The Game in the genre’s key...

When your flat-screen TV goes on the fritz, you take it back to where you bought it or send it back to the manufacturer. Not so simple, however, for Major League Baseball franchises that need repairs on their flat screens - the giant high-def scoreboards that adorn most MLB parks.

Field Service: Will Natural Gas Vehicles Become the Norm?

Facing high gas prices, many field service organizations are getting creative and lowering their usage of gasoline by going mobile and cutting down on unnecessary driving.

A couple of requests for the Warriors' TV broadcasts

Other than adding a guaranteed Hall of Famer to their starting lineup on July 4, 2016, the Warriors’ recent run of astounding success has been marked — not coincidentally, mind you — by extraordinary roster continuity by modern standards. One could say the same for their broadcasting team … on the surface, anyway.

Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip

By Steve Berman | Even if you aren't on Board yet, Ubisoft's latest makes snowboarding fun on the Wii. Just look at Shaun White, with his wiry frame and long red hair. Couldn't he be a Mii character?
