Episode #271: They Lost a Carlos

Somewhere in Oracle Park sits an unused Correa jersey.

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

Consider this a group therapy session, Giants fans. Eric and Chad try and make sense of how and why the Giants essentially walked away from the deal with Carlos Correa in the 11th hour. Just three hours prior to the press conference that would have introduced Correa and his #1 jersey, the Giants contacted his agent, Scott Boras, and told him they needed more time to go over an “issue” they discovered with Correa’s physical. Boras gave them 5 hours. The Giants never called him back. So, he hammered out a deal with Mets owner Steve Cohen and behold, Carlos Correa is now a Met. We talk through this and speculate why? Also, why have the Giants not offered any explanation. Aside from a short statement, they’ve been on radio silence. This is a PR nightmare for the team, the largest botched free agency debacle in MLB history, and an event that will have major ramifications for this franchise for years to come. No biggie, really.

Episode #270: They Got a Carlos

No caption needed

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

Just when you thought that the Giants wouldn’t make a big splash, Farhan pulls one out of his hat and signs Carlos Correa to a 13 year, $350 million contract. The Giants finally got their guy. This is in addition to signing Sean Manaea, Mitch Haniger, and Stripling…we think this team is absolutely better than last year’s version. And remember, they only missed the playoffs by six games…that’s one extra win a month. This new version should be able to do that. Join Chad, Eric, and Willie as we discuss this and more!

Episode #269: Arson Judge is Still Available

No caption needed

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

We digest the hot stove action, which unfortunately includes Aaron Judge denying the Giants their big fish, as he signed a 9/360 deal to return to the Yankees. What other free agents should the Giants target? Will this off-season be a failure if they only get Haniger? Plus, Bonds gets rejected in a big way by the HOF veterans committee. Check out this cathartic podcast (for Giants fans, that is!).

Episode #268: Dusty Gets His Ring

Dusty Baker finally got the monkey off his back and won his first ring as a manger as the Houston Astros defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 4 games to 2. Jeremy Pena won the first World Series MVP by a position player rookie, along with ALCS MVP and a gold glove. Yes, we talk a little Judge, since the hot stove is LIT! And, Carlos Rodon officially declined his $22.5m option, as expected. Barry Bonds will have another shot at the Hall of Fame in December. Also, who do you think will be the Giants’ uniform sponsor in 2023? And, why do we have to have a goddamn patch on these clean unis?!

Episode #267: Texas Ranger Bochy

Bruce Bochy was introduced as the next manager for the Texas Rangers earlier today (October 24, 2022). He signed a 3-year deal. The Rangers visit Oracle park Aug 11-13, 2023. That’ll be fun!

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

All three hosts have a very lively conversation about the Astros and Phillies in the World Series, and how the Phillies’ run is reminiscent of the 2014 Giants. Eric really, really hates the Astros, btw. Bruce Bochy comes out of retirement to become the next manager of the Texas Rangers (BTW, Rangers visit Oracle next Aug 11-13). Pete Putila is the new Giants’ GM, and Zaidi promises to be “very active” this offseason, with reports that they are targeting Aaron Judge and Trea Turner. This and Eric’s epic entry and run in a World Poker Tour 5 Diamond tournament at the Bellagio last week!

Episode #266: 2022 SF Giants Autopsy

Carlos Rodon appears pumped about the contract he’s going to cash in this offseason…probably. Rodon was voted by our hosts as the Giants’ best pitcher for 2022. Will he return in 2023? (probably not, if we’re being honest)

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

It’s time to bust out the scalpel and open up the body of the Giants’ 2022 season to determine what went wrong with the team that won a franchise-record 107 games just a season ago. Eric, Willie, and Chad put their gloves on and dig deep into the mediocrity of their offense, the sub-average bullpen, and bad defense that was countered by their excellent starting pitching. They also put out their Christmas shopping list for Zaidi, take a look at how their pre-season predictions went, and forecast the 2022 MLB Playoffs. It’s a full one! Enjoy!

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.

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

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?

Episode #264: The End is Nigh

Hunter Pence became the 55th player to make the Giants’ “Wall of Fame.” Here, Hunter rides around Oracle Park on his iconic scooter before the Giants played the Dodgers on September 17, 2022. (Jose Carlos Fajardo/Bay Area News Group)

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

The Giants had another disappointing week, and concluded their season series with their bitter rivals, the Dodgers, who took 15 of 19 games this year, the most losses to the Dodgers in a year since moving to San Francisco.

Episode #263: Without Rules, There’s Chaos

The Giants signed Wilmer Flores to a 2 year extension with a mutual option for 2025. He’s only one of two Giants to be on the books in 2024. The Giants’ checkbook should be open this offseason.

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

The Giants are humming along in their mediocrity, battling it out with Arizona for third place. In the meantime, we’ve seen some sparks from some young talent. Eric and Chad reveal what they would like to see over the Giants’ last 22 games, and they dissected the new and controversial rule changes approved for 2023.
