What a horrendous day. Just coming off the news from Puerto Rico, then comes the Vegas shooting and now Tom Petty. Let’s talk about baseball, shall we?

Chad, Eric and Willie reflect on the end of the 2017 season for the Giants, including what went wrong, how they may address it, Pablo’s season-ending walk-off and how that affects the draft, and of course, Matt Cain’s last start. Chad talks about covering Cain’s last start and Eric shares a poignant moment he had with his father when they watched Matt Cain and Barry Bonds beat the Cubs in Chicago.

We also dwell upon the impending playoffs and offer up our predictions. Chad and Willie both predict Houston and Washington making it to the World Series with Houston winning it all, while Eric thinks the Dodgers will hoist the Tiffany trophy after defeating the Astros. (GOD I hope Eric is wrong)

That means it’ll be the Twins vs the Rockies in the World Series, of course.

We’ll be back in a week or two to reflect on the playoffs, then again after the World Series before we head into the hot stove season.
