Episode #243: 2021 Season Wrap

A bad call on Wilmer Flores’ check swing did not cause the Giants to lose this series. But, it did rob Giants fans and all baseball fans of a proper conclusion to the epic NLDS between the Giants and Dodgers that came down to the last AB of the last game with the winning run at the plate.

Recap and Sounds from NLDS Game 1

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA – OCTOBER 8: San Francisco Giants’ starting pitcher Logan Webb faces the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 of the National League Division Series at Oracle Park in San Francisco, Calif., FrIday, Oct. 8, 2021. (Karl Mondon/Bay Area News Group)

This is Chad King from Torturecast with a few notes and sounds from last night’s 4-0 victory over the LA dodgers in game 1 of the National League division series at Oracle park. Logan Webb reminded all of us of Tim Lincecum’s postseason debut against the Braves in game 1 of the NLDS in 2010. Webb threw 7 ⅔ scoreless innings while striking out 10 and issuing zero walks. The offense was powered by a 2 run opposite field home run in the first by Buster Posey, followed by solo shots by Kris Bryant in the 7th and Brandon Crawford in the 8th. Tyler Rogers got one out in the 8th and Camilo Doval retired the side in order in the 9th.

Our friend Ryan Leong from Bay Area sports wrap was at Oracle last night and kindly shared some audio with us. 

The first is Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford talking about how Logan Webb has improved in his abilities over the last two years.

Giants starting and winning pitcher Logan Webb says says it’s always been his goal since he was a child to pitch in a playoff game

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says his team kept the same approach at the plate and Logan Webb exploited their weaknesses

Dodgers losing pitcher Walker Buehler says he didn’t do his job and he takes the blame for the loss.

A big thanks to Ryan Leong from Bay Area sports wrap, go follow him over on Twitter @ryanleong

Well, the Giants and Dodgers will do it again tonight at ORacle when Kevin Gausman faces 20 game winner Julio Urias. Hopefully the Giants can put their foot on the Dodgers’ throats by going up 2-0. I’ll be in the bleachers with the rowdy crowd tonight. It should be fun.

Episode #240: Not the Captain?!

Captain Belt and his sea men deboard the plane in Denver. This was all part of the annual rookie hazing. Just fantastic.

You can download the episode here, or stream it below!

A fantastic 5-1 week saw the Giants’ NL West lead grow by one game to 2 and their magic number shrink to 5 with 6 to play. Unfortunately, the good vibes were marred somewhat when we found out that Captain Belt has a fractured finger that could jeopardize any playoff participation…and he had been one of the hottest players in baseball, cranking out homers 28 and 29 in a game this week. Eric, Chad and Willie talk about the week that was and look forward to the last 6 games of the regular season as the Giants try and clinch the NL West and avoid game #163 and the wild card game. Plus, we bring back the old segment, “Why we will win it all!”

Earlier this week the Giants clinched their first postseason berth in five years, but they are not even close to being finished. After a subdued celebration, they have their eyes set on the NL West crown, but the Dodgers keep winning, as they trimmed the Giants’ lead down to a single game.

The Giants are guaranteed to have their best monthly record of the season. They won nine straight series. They went 6-3 on the road trip, yet here they are, only 1.5 games ahead of the Dodgers.

Episode #235: Pinch-Hit Bombs Rule

What an exhausting week of Giants’ baseball, filled with a heart-crushing defeat, victories snatched away from losses at the last minute, and back to back jacks twice, Chad and Eric talk about it all. The Giants maintain their NL West lead, but it did slip a bit to the streaking Dodgers. We also talk about the pros and cons of a team that relies, more than any other team, on the long-ball to score runs. We’re in the last lap of the mile now, and the Giants have their eyes surprisingly set on capturing the division title for the first time in nine years.

Episode #234: Controlling Their Own Destiny

San Francisco Giants’ Brandon Crawford signed a two-year extension worth $32 million last week that will keep him in SF through the 2023 season. (Sports Illustrated)

You can download the episode here, or stream it below!

Chad, Eric and Willie talk about the last two weeks of Giants baseball, including Brandon Crawford’s 2 year, $32 million extension and how that might affect Posey and Belt, the fact that they went 10-3 and only increased their NL West lead by a game, the dramatic come-from-behind victories, the taxed bullpen, and how this team continues to be the best in baseball with its depth, consistency and resilience. We also make fun of our pre-season win predictions and look forward to how the Giants can clinch the West, something we didn’t even consider back in April. All of our episodes are also available on Apple, Spotify, Google, Stitcher, and most major podcast platforms.
