Happy birthday, America!

To celebrate, the Giants have won six in a row, and have mystified some Giants’ fans who seem to think “there’s a chance” of making the playoffs.

No. That’s not going to happen.

But, that’s no reason to not celebrate this winning streak, the bullpen, and the timely hitting! I mean, even a guy who goes 1 for 10 with a homerun celebrates that dinger, right?

Eric and Chad talk about what’s gone right for the Giants, why they should trade Cueto, Posey’s selection to the All Star team, the homerun derby, and who’s hot and who’s not.

Stay safe out there! Don’t blow off any fingers and don’t drink and drive.

The plan was for Marty to sit down with me a couple of hours before the first pitch of last night’s Brewers-Giants game. However, forces out of Marty’s control (the Bay Bridge was closed down to one lane), he was not able to get to the park until game time. Instead of canceling or postponing the interview, Marty graciously invited me up to the dining hall to conduct the interview, certainly a way to kill two birds with one stone. We talked for about 20 minutes, discussing his career transition, his first game at Ebbets Field, the BioGenesis scandal, and the current state of the Giants.

It was a true pleasure to talk to this baseball oracle, and I hope to do so again.

You can follow Marty @baseballmarty or visit his own production company website at www.loveofthegameproductions.com.

He also hosts the pre and post-game shows on the weekends for the Giants. He gives everyone a chance to speak, except maybe “Salty” from Clovis.

I will try and transcribe this interview soon, as well.

Also, don’t forget to listen to our press box “bonusode,” recorded at Zeke’s after the Giants’ 4-2 victory. We get silly, as usual.
