What an exhausting week of Giants’ baseball, filled with a heart-crushing defeat, victories snatched away from losses at the last minute, and back to back jacks twice, Chad and Eric talk about it all. The Giants maintain their NL West lead, but it did slip a bit to the streaking Dodgers. We also talk about the pros and cons of a team that relies, more than any other team, on the long-ball to score runs. We’re in the last lap of the mile now, and the Giants have their eyes surprisingly set on capturing the division title for the first time in nine years.

Episode #234: Controlling Their Own Destiny

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

Chad, Eric and Willie talk about the last two weeks of Giants baseball, including Brandon Crawford’s 2 year, $32 million extension and how that might affect Posey and Belt, the fact that they went 10-3 and only increased their NL West lead by a game, the dramatic come-from-behind victories, the taxed bullpen, and how this team continues to be the best in baseball with its depth, consistency and resilience. We also make fun of our pre-season win predictions and look forward to how the Giants can clinch the West, something we didn’t even consider back in April. All of our episodes are also available on Apple, Spotify, Google, Stitcher, and most major podcast platforms.

Chad, Eric and Dills chat about the team with the best record in the bigs and their power surge to the top of the homerun charts and how Farhan’s moves are paying big dividends. We review the series in Texas and Washington and focus on the sweep of Arizona and series win against Philly. Who’s hot and who’s not, all star game voting, the pen has improved tremendously and playoff odds are increasing by the day and at this point, we’d be surprised if they don’t make the playoffs.

Episode #226: Snatchin’ Walk-offs

San Francisco Giants’ Mike Tauchman snatches a would-be walk-off home run off the bat of Albert Pujols. The Giants would end up winning the game in 10 innings by a score of 8-5. (Photo from NBC telecast)

The Giants’ season took a depressing turn when they were swept at home by the Dodgers. But, being #ResilientAF, they brushed themselves off and won 6 of their next 7 games, including 3 of 4 in Dodger Stadium. That weekend was highlighted by a gut-wrenching, classic torturous Giants game as the Dodgers tied it up with a pinch-hit, 2 out, 3-run bomb to tie the game at 5. The very next batter, Albert Pujols, sent what appeared to be the walk-off blast over the left field wall until Mike Tauchman put on his cape and lept over the fence to snatch defeat out of thin air. The Giants proceeded to put a 3 spot in the 10th and held on for the win. That propelled them to 3 straight over the Dodgers. Chad and Willie talk about the last two weeks of baseball, the shift, Gausman winning NL pitcher of the month, postseason predictions, the upcoming series vs the streaking Cubs (9-1 over 10…and swept the Padres) and more.

Join us for episode #225 as we chat about the 26-16 first-place Giants as they stay hot. Yes, they should be 6-0 on this road trip, but sh$# happens. Despite having the best record in all of baseball, the Giants have still been walked off 6 times on the road. That’s HALF of their 12 road losses. As Eric put it, they aren’t #ResilientSF, they are #ResilientAF. We chat about the Pittsburgh and Cincinnati series, and preview the BIG series against the Dodgers this weekend. (apologies for some audio level problems, they will be fixed for the next episode)

Join Chad and Eric’s discussion about the last week of Giants baseball and the surprising development that this team finds itself alone in first place for the first time since August 2016. Remarkable for a rag-tag team, eh? They review the series at home vs Colorado and three at San Diego. The starters continue to dominate while the hitting and bullpen still need to pick it up. But hey, we can’t complain much at this point. Then there were the infamous three straight balls called strikes in the 9th in San Diego (see tweet below). Ump had a dinner reservation, apparently. This and more in episode 223 of the TortureCast!

Join Chad, Willie and Eric’s discussion about the Giants series victory over those pesky Marlins.
