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.

We recorded episode #250 and reviewed the week in Giants’ baseball. Not the greatest week, going 2-3, but there were many challenges to overcome from COVID and injuries, Farhan is making deals everywhere, a career minor-leaguer finally got his chance in the show, and the rosters have contracted. Eric has a mini-rant about fair weather Giants fans at the end, so don’t miss it!
