Pitching a big concern for Giants?

Pitching is the primary reason the San Francisco Giants were able to rattle off World Series Championships in two of the last four years, and by pitching we mean all phases -- the starting staff, the setup men and a lock-down closer (first Brian Wilson, then Sergio Romo).

But with Tim Lincecum far from the dominant ace he once was, Matt Cain (elbow/ankle) out for the season and Tim Hudson (9-13) recording the first losing season of his long career, this is a Giants team that will enter Wednesday's wild-card game against Pittsburgh that will have to rely on a difference recipe to win ball games in October.

Will Cespedes end up in RF in 2015?

Yoenis Cespedes has one of the strongest outfield arms of anyone to have ever played the game. A bold statement? Perhaps. But it's one that's hard to argue against if you've seen throws like this one from June, when Cespedes's laser from left field beat a stunned Howie Kendrick to home plate.

Incredibly, though, in 275 career major league games Cespedes has yet to appear in right field, the position where most strong-armed sluggers call end up calling home. But, according to one story out of Boston, that's likely to change in 2015.

With Adrian Peterson out of the mix and rookie QB Teddy Bridgewater making his first start Sunday, there was hope in Fantasyland that second-year WR Cordarrelle Patterson might finally break out. Instead, he saw a season-low four passing targets, zero rushes and ended up with just two receptions for 38 yards and no scores.

End of the line for Dennis Allen?

On Sunday, I noted that Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen and GM Reggie McKenzie were squarely on the hot seat heading into their overseas tilt with the Miami Dolphins. Surely, the heat on their seats rose further after they were mopped up 38-14 in London.

There was buzz from an AP reporter Sunday evening that Allen was out, though that tweet quickly was retracted. Still, it appears that Allen has a tenuous grip on the job, and a change during their Week 5 bye could be imminent.

“'I will keep you posted,' a Raiders spokesman texted me early this morning," TheMMQB.com's Peter King wrote Monday morning. "It’s just a matter of time for Allen, who cannot survive with a porous D plus Matt McGloin becoming the third starting quarterback in the last six weeks now that Derek Carr is out with a sprained knee ligament and sprained ankle.
