The Giants’ hot streak has been muffled by losing 4 of their last 5, all by 1 run and 3 by walk-off. Although they are still in contention, they can’t afford to continue to lose these close games. Eric and Chad talk about the last 2 weeks of Giants baseball, a trade, injuries and more!

Chad and Eric discuss the last week in Giants’ baseball, including a trade for a catcher and the demotion of Joey Bart to Sacramento. Also, their defense is at the bottom of the league and we explore why. Chad also asks the question, is it ok for a grown man to wear a baseball jersey at a game?

Episode #254: Mediocre May

The Giants finished May with a 13-14 record, their first losing month since 2020. Despite producing more runs per game in May than they did in April, they also finished the month with an MLB-worst 6.26 reliever ERA, and a 5.44 staff ERA. Clearly, the pitching is holding them back. Eric and Chad talk about this hopeful outlier of a month, the best Giants for the first third of the season, the “slap” by Tommy Pham on Joc Pederson, and where the Giants hope to go from here.
