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!

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)

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 #263: Without Rules, There’s Chaos

Episode #262: When the Lights Go Out in the City

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA – AUGUST 31: San Francisco Giants’ Joc Peterson backpedals into the dugout jawing the whole way with home plate umpire Adrian Johnson after a call strike three during an MLB game against the San Diego Padres, Wednesday, Aug. 31, 2022, in San Francisco, Calif. (Karl Mondon/Bay Area News Group)

Not a good week. At all. The Giants are in the midst of a 7-game losing streak, including sweeps at Minnesota and at home against the Padres. At 10 1/2 games back of a playoff spot, tied with Arizona now, with 32 games left, the season is over. What went wrong? Who’s to blame? What can they do? The only goals left are to have a winning month, get close to .500, and see what the young bucks have in their tanks. 2022 is turning out to be an extremely disappointing season for a team that set a franchise record with 107 wins last year. Come commiserate with us!

The Giants have one of the worst records after the All Star Break at 5-12 and are almost completely out of the playoff picture. That said, they are getting a lot of their regular roster back and can make ground against the Padres starting tonight. The boys also talk about what the Giants did and didn’t do at the trade deadline, and how they may hope to compete with the Dodgers and Padres rosters in the future. Plus, Hunter Pence is going on the Giants’ “Wall of Fame” on 9/17! Remember, you can catch us live most Mondays at 12:15 pm PDT.
