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!

We’re back for the new year with a fresh episode to bring updates regarding the MLB lockout of players, but in addition, we have a little discussion about the insane football playoff games from this past weekend, the fact that the Giants never even offered Kevin Gausman a contract, and it looks like Bonds will not make it to the Hall of Fame in his 10th and final year of eligibility.

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.

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

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.

Giants. Dodgers. Elimination Game. Playoffs. It doesn’t get any better than this!

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!
