The Giants went 3-3 since our last podcast, but after losing the first two in Miami, I think most Giants fans will be quite pleased with winning 3 of 4 since then. But, let’s be honest: going 3-3 against two of the worst teams in the league is disappointing, but also a barometer of where this Giants team is amongst the 30 clubs. We talk about the great performances of Shaun Anderson, Tyler Beede, and Jeff Samardzija, Crawford’s 2 homer game, two easy wins in Baltimore, scoring 5 in the first inning just to give up 6 to the Orioles in the bottom half of the first, we review May’s atrocious stats (spoiler: the starting pitching stats are the worst in SF history for ANY month), we preview the MLB draft (Giants have the 10th overall pick), who’s hot and not, and much more!
Willie Dills is back this week, and he brings with him some questions about our Spring Giants – should we worry about Timmy? How good is Bumgarner? How do we see Huff doing this year? How did Gregor Blanco get over there so fast, I swear he was right here? What the hell is that thing in the Miami outfield?
And what about Tommy?
Willie, Chad, and Ben cover all this and more in a TortureCast record-setting forty-seven minutes! Grab some pine, and settle in (but not for long), because we’re talking some Spring!
