Another pinch-blogger: Hunter Pence!

Hello, everyone. This is Hunter Pence filling in for Brandon Hicks, or Brandon Crawford, or Brandon Belt, whoever’s turn it is supposed to be.

I’m filling in because — you probably didn’t know this — Hunter is a nickname for Brandon.

My middle name is Andrew, which is Swedish for Brandon. And Pence is English for Brandon. So my actual name is Brandon Brandon Brandon.

You also probably didn’t know that “Tim Lincecum’’ is Dutch for Brandon.

Buster is a nickname for Brandon. Pablo is Spanish for Brandon. Pagan is Puerto Rican for Brandon. Madison is Southern for Brandon. “Bumgarner’’ is — I have no idea what that is. I think it’s Arabic for Brandon.

Pretty much everyone is Brandon. We’re Team Brandon.

Kruk and Kuip have got to get with the program. Brandon’s throwing the pitch to Brandon. When anybody steps into the box, Brandon’s up to bat. The double play combo is Brandon to Brandon to Brandon. (Wait, they already call that one.)

So now if you yell “Brandon,’’  you’ll get everybody’s attention. We’ll all respond because we all became Brandon when the third Brandon arrived. We’re a unit. When we take the field we’re a family of Brandons.

The original Brandons still have some privileges. They have their own really cool handshake. It’s the patty-cake chest-bump Brandon. You need to check that out. (We new Brandons don’t get to do the handshake.)

You might notice the originals all have beards. Beards are part of the ancestral tradition of Brandon-dom.

The rest of us Brandons who also have beards are doing this to honor the Brandon history. Pagan, with his beard, is clearly honoring his Brandon-ness. Posey has not yet matured enough for a beard. He’s still a Baby Brandon.

The original Brandons are all in the same hitting group, which is called, of course, Team Brandon. Buster’s in that group and Timmy. My hitting group is called Laser Swag: Morse, Arias, Perez, Vogelsong and Hudson. It’s a name we all agreed on. The other one is Pablo’s group, called La Guerilla. I think it means gangster or army in Spanish. Or maybe it means Brandon.

-Hunter P.


This won’t do, Hunter. You clearly need your OWN blog. You feel it; you know it. We all know it. This NEEDS to happen. You won’t rest until it does.

I loved this! I was laughing the whole time reading it🙂 pence should get his own blog !🙂

So, next week when my students and I are out on the field singing the National Anthem I can just yell out, “hey Brandon” and everyone will look our way”?
I agree with the SF Giants – get a blog Hunter! I’ll help you set it up (said the choir director)

Awesome. The more Brandons, the better. In fact, if I were a boy I’d probably learn that my name means Brandon in Cantonese or something.

“The patty-cake chest-bump Brandon handshake.” LOL! Hi, Hunter “Brandon” Pence! Welcome to the forum! :0) Go get ’em tonight! We’ll see you in an hour!

Hunter your not a pinch hitter so you shouldn’t be a pinch blogger, you simply are too awesome and need your own !🙂

The Brandons’ blog is fab, but Hunter needs to have his own blog! Lets rock the Dbacks tonight & take the series.

Very clever, Hunter.

Brandon, you’re crazy! And I love it!

Digging the Brandon-Mania but you definitely need your own blog too! So happy the Giants are back and kickin some a**.

Next time I go to the game I’m going to yell Brandon to see if you turn! This is too funny. Brandon is a good name!

This was awesome, just what I needed to read after a (very) long day at work. I couldn’t stop laughing. Thank Hunter…uh, I mean Brandon. 😁

Haha! love your sense of humor, Brandon Pence! Good luck tonight!

Hilarious. Great blogging Brandon Brandon Brandon… ROFLMAO

Loved this Hunter/Brandon! You clearly need your very own blog!

I think I just peed a little bit, laughing so hard. Thank you for making a crappy day at work have a wonderful ending. Gotta go, I’m watching the game of Brandons.
Here’s to a winning season.

“Brance” you rock!!!! LOL😀

I met a guy from Philly at wedding right after you were traded to the Giants. I asked him if I was going to like you. He told me I’d love you. He was right.

Thanks for the laughs Brandon Brandon Brandon! Love you Pence!

Alright, Brandons, Laser Swag, and La Guerilla, let’s win! Love, love, love, the SF GIANTS!

Just piling on here to say that “Brance” (aka the “Swedish/English Brandon”) MUST HAVE his own blog!

Let us pray to gods of that it happen… SOON!

Hi Hunter — you are so funny! I enjoyed reading ….

Best Brandon yet

The San Francisco Brandons.

Thanks for the fun post, Hunter, hope you pinch hit here when you can! Keep up the good work you have done here since coming over in trade, I can barely remember a time where you weren’t around, seems like you have been here forever already!

Glad the team was able to re-sign you and keep you around for a long time, you have been a great breath of fresh air for our franchise, as well as a great overall player, I’m still amazed by how many bases you stole last season! And now you are doing great on defense, you can do it all now!

This wasn’t funny at all. Talk about the games Pence.

In the animal kingdom, if I remember my zoology: species Brandon, phyla Brandon
family Brandon. Characteristics, play baseball at a very high level

Hi Hunter-Brandon! That was an awesome display of pinch-blogging prowess. I liked it so much, in fact, that I’m going to make you a birthday sign when I come to Sunday’s game🙂 I haven’t seen the Giants in person since I experienced Candlestick as a freezing, windblown girl. See you Sunday🙂

This is so funny my family all talked about renaming Pablo Brandon last night!!! Hey on a side note Brandon Lincecum needs to shave his bad luck stache!

And our ” Home Run Hunter”.

Hahahaha!!!!!! I love all the Brandons-new or old, Brandon and non-Brandons!

You guys should have Timmy join in on your blog wouldn’t hurt..👍 #TogetherWe’reBRANDON ✊

If I were having a baby this season, his name would have to be Brandon! However, since my “baby” turns 30 this year, I’m NOT starting over just to jump on the Brandon bandwagon. I was on business travel this week so I missed the opening games. However, I gave my Wed night tickets to my daughter and her boyfriend with the condition that they give me one of the Pence bobbleheads! Go Giants!

This was wonderful.

Why does this make me think of that scene in Spartacus?

Best blog ever! Brandon C & Brandon B we love you, love this blog, and now thanks to Brandon P we have more Brandons to love. GO TEAM BRANDON! ♢♢♢♢

Brandon, you are hilarious!

Here’s 2 of 3.

To Hunter. I want to say thank you for introducing me to Paleo. I have to say that I feel so much better. I wake up in the morning feeling GOOD! So, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

PS Check out we named it this BEFORE you came to play for the Giants but still kinda funny. .we joke we are going to send you a bottle. Can you drink wine on the Paleo?

“Posey had not yet matured enough for a beard”- this made me laugh so hard. I love “laser swag” as well. Lasers are cool. Giant robots that shoot lasers are also cool. I agree that you should have your own blog. High five.

Hunter AKA Brandon- you are too funny! Please start writing your own blog . Very clever!!🙂

And Christine is Irish for Brandon. Can I join the team?

It’s like that scene in “Being John Malkovich” only all the Brandons just keep saying “Brandon. Brandon? Brandon! Brandon.”
