Episode #265: Now the Giants are Good?

Buster Posey most likely used a lot of his successful investment into Body Armor to buy a portion of the Giants to become their first co-owner that was a player.

Giants went 6-1 this week, making a .500 season possible if they go 6-3 the rest of the way. Buster Posey owns the Giants (partially)! Aaron Judge is going to be very expensive, no matter if he hits 60 or 63. Albert Pujols crosses 700 homers. The Giants’ pen is hot, and is it ok to wear your name on the back of a jersey?

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!

Giants set opening day roster

Here is your 2022 San Francisco Giants Opening Day roster:

The roster is expanded to 28, from 26 for the month of April to help out with the double headers and lack of off days due to the season starting late from the lockout. Personally, not too many surprises, as it’s very similar to the 2021 opening day roster and what they had at the end of last season, aside from subbing Bart for Posey, adding Rodon and Pederson and a few others. Hey, the Giants are apparently 107-win underdogs this year. Let’s see how they do. They open tomorrow, Friday, April 8 at 1:35pm PDT at home against the Miami Marlins. Chad should be at Oracle on Monday when they battle the Padres, be sure to follow all the action at TortureCast on twitter.

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.

We had to take a few days (or longer) to process the finality of the end of the #SFGiants‘ remarkable 2021 season, but we’re ready to talk about it.

Join us for a playoff special episode as we review the first four games of the NLDS against the hated Dodgers and preview the “win-or-go-home” game 5, to be played Thursday night at Oracle Park. We share our keys to the game, our super (or little) -stitions while we watch games, and quite honestly, just get pumped about the fact that this is happening for the first time in our lives.

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)

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

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.

Don’t forget to follow us on twitter @Torturecast, like us on Facebook and check out our site at Torturecast.com. Just yesterday KTVU ran a story about Torturecast and Giants fandom featuring yours truly. The video is up here at torturecast.com.

Have a great day, and Go Giants! Boom!
