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.

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.

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)

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.

Episode #240: Not the Captain?!

Captain Belt and his sea men deboard the plane in Denver. This was all part of the annual rookie hazing. Just fantastic.

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

A fantastic 5-1 week saw the Giants’ NL West lead grow by one game to 2 and their magic number shrink to 5 with 6 to play. Unfortunately, the good vibes were marred somewhat when we found out that Captain Belt has a fractured finger that could jeopardize any playoff participation…and he had been one of the hottest players in baseball, cranking out homers 28 and 29 in a game this week. Eric, Chad and Willie talk about the week that was and look forward to the last 6 games of the regular season as the Giants try and clinch the NL West and avoid game #163 and the wild card game. Plus, we bring back the old segment, “Why we will win it all!”

You can join us live on Facebook every Monday around noon Pacific time. Episode #240 video is posted below:

Earlier this week the Giants clinched their first postseason berth in five years, but they are not even close to being finished. After a subdued celebration, they have their eyes set on the NL West crown, but the Dodgers keep winning, as they trimmed the Giants’ lead down to a single game. With 12 games remaining, the stakes are high. Who will come out on top? We cover this and more! Audio version is available wherever you get your podcasts.

The annual feeling that hope springs eternal when you hear the crack of the bat is upon us! Spring training has started and Chad and Eric are here to talk about it. On the table for this episode is the top of the lineup, new pitching acquisitions Aaron Sanchez and Scott Kazmir, Belt’s mysterious illness, names are being added to the Giants’ home jerseys and we reminisce about our top 5 Giants’ seasons of all time…that was a fun and nostalgic discussion.

Farhan Zaidi has been at it over the past four weeks, signing pitchers Alex Wood and Jake McGee and infielder Tommy LaStella, and trading pitcher Shaun Anderson to the Twins for outfielder LaMonte Wade Jr. All of these acquisitions certainly makes the Giants incrementally stronger via depth, role, and situationally. Chad and Eric discuss the impact of these moves, the possible starting rotation, where the Giants’ farm system is nationally ranked, our top five Oracle Park moments, the Super Bowl and more.

Episode #212: New Year, Who Dis?

The Giants’ most recent signing was catcher Curt Casali. Not a big splash, but he’ll be a serviceable backup to Buster Posey and will compete with Chadwick Tromp. Earlier signings included a returning Kevin Gausman and RHP Anthony DeSclafani.

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

Happy New Year! We’re back! Eric and Chad hop aboard the first podcast train of 2021 to discuss the players that the Giants have signed so far this offseason, what their needs are, and what free agents are left to pursue to fill the holes. Boy, the Padres certainly loaded up with Darvish and Snell, eh? Egad. That said, we do think there is a good chance the Giants could sneak into the playoffs with an expanded playoff schedule like last year, but those details have not been settled, yet. With the demonstration of the NFL finishing its regular season during the pandemic along with last year’s MLB and NBA seasons, it seems likely that MLB will proceed with its regularly-scheduled spring training and season. However, the owners will push to delay the season to offset the financial losses of not having fans in most parks for the first couple months. The players won’t let that happen. We talk about this and more on episode 212 of the TortureCast, the podcast by and for fans of the San Francisco Giants.

Episode #211: Braves, You Had ONE JOB!

Our old friend Pablo Sandoval and the Atlanta Braves had a 2-0 and 3-1 lead over the hated Dodgers, but couldn’t manage to win just one out of the remaining three games of the NLCS. Yes, the hated (did I say that) Dodgers are in the World Series…again. Photo by Carmen Mandato/Getty Images
