Sorry, Giants fans. Harper will not be wearing a Giants uniform, but then again, if he had signed, it would have been for 12 YEARS. I think some of us are glad this didn’t happen. (Graphic: NBC Sports Bay Area).

Chad and Eric reconvene after the #Harperwatch ended last week. The Giants were once again the bridesmaid after Harper said no and took the rose from the Phillies. But, we talk about the reasons why he stayed in the NL East, and why it could have been a prohibitive contract for the Giants, especially if they aren’t going to be competitive for a few years.
We also talk about the start of spring, the crowded outfield and pen, starting rotation possibilities, Bochy’s retirement announcement and the unfortunate Larry Baer incident.
The season is a mere 24 days away, and we can’t wait!
The Giants were considered the 10th seed in the MLB playoffs, yet here they are, demolishing the Pittsburgh Pirates and Washington Nationals to become one of the “Final Four” in Major League Baseball. Willie, Chad and Eric (@2outhits) discuss the Giants’ chances in the NLCS vs the Cardinals and what makes these teams so special in episode 73 of the TortureCast!
Chad and Ben jump into Spring Training talk looking at some recent results and some recent injury revelations and how they impact the players in camp. They also discuss converted infielders like Sergio Santos as well as several cuts to minor leaguers and roster invitees before bringing on Christina Russo for an interview and some of her Spring Training experiences. We wind up with a discussion of gender and female fans, hate on Bryce Harper, and close with a somber note on Fabrice Muamba.
