Warning, your Twitter account will once again produce a bit of smoke this evening as Willie, Ben and Chad will be in the press box for Rockies vs. Giants tonight. It’s strange, but this will be the third game this year, out of 5, that we’ve seen Lincecum pitch. Not trying to line it up that way…just happens.
This could be Lincecum’s second-to-last start in a Giants uniform at AT&T. Strange to ponder that possibility, but looking at the schedule, he’ll have 4 more starts; tonight, in LA, in NY, then back at home for a final start against the hated Dodgers. Wait…holy weed, Batman…I just realized that if the rotation keeps that way, our next game in the box will be that Lincecum start, and potentially his final for the Giants.
We’ve decided to expand access to our podcasts by putting them on YouTube! They’ll normally be posted a little after they go up on iTunes, Podomatic, Stitcher, and our website, but if you can’t find us now, you might be a Dodger fan…
Chad and Willie talk to San Francisco Giants first baseman, Brandon Belt at Giants’ “Media Day” about the Olive Garden, his nickname “Sparky,” the sight of all the baby giraffe hats in the stands, staying consistently calm, and the influence of Will Clark and JT Snow in the clubhouse.
Willie asks San Francisco Giants’ Pitcher Barry Zito about his awareness of #RallyZito, the fan support during the playoffs (Twitter is still not for Zito), and how the hell he got a hit off of Justin Verlander in the World Series.
Chad and Willie talk to San Francisco Giants Manager Bruce Bochy at Giants’ “Media Day” about the calming effect of Hunter Pence’s speeches, how he wasn’t planning on driving the 49ers down Market Street, the honor of managing for the Giants, and how Brandon Belt reminds him of Bernie from “Weekend at Bernies”
Chad talks to San Francisco Giants’ 2 time Cy Young award winner Tim Lincecum about his off-season training regimen, if the Giants have a target on their back, timing differential between his fastball and changeup, his new haircut, and why he’s not eating In-N-Out burgers anymore.
Up first is my interview with Sergio Romo, asking him about the 49ers Super Bowl loss, the similarities and differences between football and baseball, Hunter Pence’s speeches and how they helped in the 2012 playoffs, his off-season training regimen, his rubber-band arm, and he likes to crack his knuckles.
We had unprecedented access (well, at least for us amateurs) to the Giants players today for “Media Day” at AT&T Park. Willie and I were able to make it up to the park for the 2 hour speed-dating session with the players and had more access than we could have imagined.
Currently, I’m editing videos of the players that I interviewed, and they’ll be posted throughout the wee hours of the night, as you sleep, or at least, after you drank yourself to sleep, still bitter of the 49ers Super Bowl loss.
We have video interviews of Sergio Romo, Tim Lincecum, Ryan Vogelson, Bruce Bochy, Buster Posey, Barry Zito, Brian Sabean, and maybe even the custodian.
