We talk about the absolute thud of a sound that the Giants made over the last two weeks. They have completely fallen out of the NL West race and now are on the outside looking in at the wild card race. What happened? Can they fix it? How did 107 happen last year? We also discuss the Giants All-Star selections of Joc Pederson and Carlos Rodon, and will the Giants be sellers at the trade deadline? Plus, what we think the chance are that the Giants sign Aaron Judge this offseason. This and more!

Episode #254: Mediocre May

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

The Giants finished May with a 13-14 record, their first losing month since 2020. Despite producing more runs per game in May than they did in April, they also finished the month with an MLB-worst 6.26 reliever ERA, and a 5.44 staff ERA. Clearly, the pitching is holding them back. Eric and Chad talk about this hopeful outlier of a month, the best Giants for the first third of the season, the “slap” by Tommy Pham on Joc Pederson, and where the Giants hope to go from here.

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.
