Join all three of us as we dissect the road trip in Miami and Philadelphia, where the Giants maintained their .500 road record. The trip included a couple of shutouts, great pitching, heartbreaking losses, and a couple of fantastic comebacks. Where are all these pinch-hit homers coming from? We discuss Doval’s debut, Cueto’s injury, Giants with the unlucky BABIP and more in episode 221 of the TortureCast!.

With the way the Giants are playing, we DO feel good! For those of you who are old enough to remember the 1989 “I Feel Good” commercial/campaign the Giants ran….you’ll understand. Join us for episode #220 as Chad and Eric review the Giants series in San Diego and against Colorado and Cincinnati. We discuss the incredible timely hitting (despite being second-worst in batting average in the NL), and excellent pitching that has contributed to their scorching 8-4 start to the season. Alex Wood joined the rotation and will pitch in Miami, but that’s balanced by a lat injury to Johnny Cueto in the finale of the Reds series.

Episode #215: Young Spring Power

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

The Giants have a small power surge going in their lineup this week with two bombs by young phenom Heliot Ramos and solo shots coming from six other players. Jose Alvarez also signed with the Giants this week, further bolstering their pen with yet another lefty. Eric and Chad talk about how the Giants are building their roster with depth as a strength, since they lack some of the talent that lurks on rosters in LA and San Diego. We also look at another top 5: this time our top 5 Giants pitchers in our own lifetimes. Obviously, Bum and Timmy made our lists, but perhaps we’re old enough to sneak on pitchers from the 80’s? Look for us to regularly record every Monday throughout the rest of the season. We streamed this episode on Facebook Live and the video is accessible below.

Exclusive Player Interviews…and some not so exclusive interviews…

 

Yesterday was a very productive day at AT&T Park, as I grabbed quick group interviews with Buster Posey, Brandon Crawford, Hunter Pence, Matt Moore, Bruce Bochy, Jeff Samardzija and the new closer, Mark Melancon. All but Samardzija (audio only) are in the YouTube playlist above.

Now that FanFest is over, and spring training is about to start, just sit back, relax, and see what your some of your favorite Giants have to say about the upcoming season.
