We know this For them to look the way they have looked the last two days. I know it was there to best starters, but Man, That's not easy What they just pulled off.

Well, my building screwed around because he was a little back and forth on it. Yeah, man, you could always call in and talk baseball here early. I really appreciate it, man. Thank you for calling in Stephen Duggar is one of those guys this year is pretty easy to root for. And if you're just joining us, and you missed him hopping on with us about 20 minutes ago and admitting that it was a very, very emotional and difficult experience when he was set down About a month ago as he's having the best year of his career. Let's not remember or let's not forget how this season started for him as well, which was Really feeling like it was his last shot. I mean, Stephen Duggar has been, um that that homegrown Giants outfielder that everyone's been hoping would show up. For a few years now and at the start of this year at the end of last year really felt like I might have been hit. Um, but he got the chance this year and he was making the absolute most of it. And then he had a tough three weeks and because of a roster crunch, poof, he's gone. And just imagine what that feels like for a guy that that is not easy. But he had the faith you'd have another chance. Here it is and three days in, could it have gone any better? Three triples in three games, including a two run triple off a Walker Buehler in the game of the year. Like I said, Uh, 15 minutes ago. That's how you do life. There did nothing better than that. There's nothing better than having your disappointment. Followed by your opportunity, followed by making the most of it. That's that's the good stuff, man. That's the desert. That's a big bowl of ice cream. For for Stephen Duggar. Um, I think it's been hot. The last couple days. I got ice cream on my brain anyway. Danny Everman, who covers the Giants, for us is going to hop on here. Next mark weather with you on the sports leader. This is Mark Willard on KNBR, 1045 and 6 80 the sports leader.
