The boys are back after a vacation break to bring you some heartache, but silver linings. The Giants were swept by the Cubs, but thanks to the Pirates and Nats, sit only 2.5 games back of the Dodgers. We talk starting rotation, injuries, who we love and hate, and basically sing a huge kumbaya.
We got to talk about a winning week in episode 85. The Giants swept the Dodgers at home, and they went 4-1 for the week. We’ll ignore the fact that the Giants lost to the Dodgers tonight. That doesn’t count.
Chad thinks Sanchez will be DFA’d when Pence comes back, we love Maxwell and Aoki, hate Ventura, Twitter and Arte Mareno.
Come join this “less than 1 hour” episode of the TortureCast!
Willie and Chad kept this podcast much shorter than usual, mostly because Willie wanted to throw himself out of his apartment window after that crushing, epic, utterly pathetic choke-job the Warriors pulled in San Antonio. They blow a 16 point lead with less than 4 minutes left!! Then leave Ginobli THAT WIDE OPEN for a 3 pointer with 3 seconds left in double OT!!!!??
But, we digress and get back to talking Giants baseball and their tonic that was a 6 game winning streak.
Giants have now swept every other team in the NL west, mental edge from here on out?
0.5 ahead of COL, 3rd best record in NL after tonight’s loss
After 32 games last year, they were 15-17 and 6 GB of LA
