"bay bridge" Discussed on Giants Splash
"Top adventure athletes like rock climber alex handled who came on to talk through his incredible free solo climb of el capitan in yosemite. The big part of the film is like the whole love story with my girlfriend and all that but i hadn't even met her when we started listen in wherever you get your podcasts wild west today on as plus we are delighted to welcome in john shea the chronicles national baseball writer. John is often a regular on this podcast podcast but we've we have not seen enough of you this year john. It's just wonderful to have you back especially with one of our favorite things coming up this week. The first in the bay bridge series the as will be at the giants tuesday and wednesday <hes>. How do you see this. You know our arcor favorite beverage series especially with the as still in contention in the giants. Maybe playing a little bit better than i think. People expected earlier in the year but but not you know maybe maybe not quite worthy as our If these teams matched up this time of year in the past two seasons only one team would have had maybe one team would have something to play for but now both teams have something to play for the giants actually in it but i mean not really because half the league is in the national league wild card race. I mean literally. There's seven teams within three and a half games and the giants have happened to be three and a half out but you know the american league. Obviously they have a lot to play for the as all all they have to do is finish one team in this race unless boston makes some kind of crazy run here in the last two months which doesn't seem likely but they'll have to to do is finish ahead of tampa bay or whoever finish the second in the central cleveland or minnesota the giants have to finish the head a bunch of teams at the league like i says involved in miss crazy nationally wild card race so there's there's something to play for and that that's pretty cool because <hes> you know oftentimes the giants finished last the last couple of years was in the ace had their bad stretch a few years ago where they weren't really in this time of year so now suddenly both teams are in it and that's that's the beauty of the wildcard because otherwise they would not be <unk>. There's a very close to first place at all yeah. It's <hes> it's always tougher when you've got a ton of teams ahead of you that you know the the baseball people always say really. It's not the number of games back. It's the number of teams ahead of you because when you have to start leapfrogging so many teams playing each other down the stretch. The math starts just to get a little complicated so obviously teams really wanted. Just go for the division. I don't think that's going to be very likely in either case the way the dodgers played away the astros would play the as have four games against the astros on this current essentially too weak homestand at the is have they've got to san francisco and then it's a week and a half at the coliseum kim in a in a kind of a tough one you know they've got the astros coming in and they got the yankees and then they've got to against the giants finish up at the coliseum so fun week a busy week but a tough one now. I know you haven't seen the ice for a while. The thing that jumped out to me and you've probably noticed from afar is the rotation has just been so much better better than we ever. They all spring we kept saying man with this. Rotation might not be very good. We spent the offseason going. Who's even gonna pitch for them. A really it's turned into the strength of the team team. The offense has been dragging <hes> and the bullpen has been radic as everyone knows what are your thoughts looking at the as current rotation especially with some of the additions editions they made with roark and bailey will go in the second game at san francisco that was supposed to be the big question mark coming in it was a big question mark last year. Oh you had a strong bullpen. You knew you had a a deep and powerful lineup but in this case for whatever reason it's the rotation nation you're right with fires and passive just awesome since the all star break and <hes> you know without montages get the p._d. Suspension and <hes> i you know maybe you have puck and luzardo. Come in come in quickly here <hes> in that'll be good news in september <hes> <hes> but it's it it's cool to see these lower scored games because of the the as have not been able to you know the firepower two run homer yesterday and as we speak it's monday here <hes> with <hes> chapman double almost a home run and then then then the two run home run but but if if if <hes> if chris davis comes around i you know then you know all bets are off. This is a this is a mighty team once again but that's a really strange james thing. He seems healthy but <hes> he's seems out a rhythm timing. He's getting full. He's swinging balls out of the zone. What what do you see there you see because that was the one consistency in the lineup. You knew he was gonna hit. Forty home runs collect one hundred r._b._i. Is in hit <hes> was it to forty three to forty seven year and in this year is just not happening yeah. It's you know the the injuries obviously affected him before the break he is now fully healthy but <unk> as bob melvin mentioned in chicago this week <unk> sometimes when you're injured you can get into some bad habits when he come back. Can throw your timing off. It's such when you're talking about hating a big league fastball or taking pitch you're talking about you know just fractions of an inch here in in their something different with your setup with your swing and of course your timing just to a millisecond off and you're just not going to barrel the ball and that's what we're seen gene. We've seen a lot of <hes> he's. He's actually hitting the ball better but he's just not quite there. He's not quite barreling the ball up. He's having good at bats much better at bats recently. He's taken some walks. He's getting some big singles. He's mitch mixing them in but that is not with the as need they need that big threat in the middle of the order in the fact you know he volunteered to move down lineup which to take some pressure off him and he felt like other people could do the job better and kudos for him for recognizing that and suggesting it <hes> shows is no ego shows. He's a team guy but <hes> without as much a threat in the middle of the order that affects matt olson his numbers have been a little bit down recently and a clearly has affected matt chapman. You can pitch around matt chapman a little bit more you can pitch around metals and a little bit more when you don't have have chris davis swimming swinging the bat while they need him to get on on track the fact the as have stuck right in contention with chris davis doing very little power our wise and with trying to intervene oh really not getting on track at all you know they've been waiting for them for months and months and every it's you know it's a half step forward and two steps back two steps back it seems like it's pretty extraordinary <hes> and if they get any of those guys but especially davis to come back even partway to where they usually are they could be could be in pretty decent shape because she's they've essentially managed to do without them for for months. Now yet seems could be one of melbourne's best managing jobs given all that you just what we say that you know you look who really had been there and most electrifying player. You're the guy who kind of was getting things going. You know especially late in games. He's got you know kinda that plays with passion and had the knack for the big hit and and <hes> you know he's out until i i'm going to say a safe assumption. Maybe early september. That's a huge blow in here. The still are just hanging around. They will not go away. They've got that chance and you look at their schedule. They don't play anymore. Wildcard <hes> candidates <hes> but you know like you said houston and new york they play klay eight against the astros six against the yankees but otherwise they play all losing teams then again the raise who were right there with the as in the wild card art race <hes> are in the stretch applying twenty one straight games against losing teams so <hes> the schedule seems to be somewhat <hes> you know equal equal for those teams and <hes> you know the cleveland and minnesota just got done playing a four game series cleveland did better eh. That's the only race they only evisceration in the league right now. They're they're tied for first place but but yeah i'm i'm thinking if maybe the season goes as chris davis grows. Maybe he'll it is to to forty seven again and all that but but but then again he has seventeen home runs and we're talking giants as right going into inserts that would be number one on the giants and he's he's having his worst year in oakland so that that goes to show you how these two teams are built our you know one for power one not so much for fowler got to rely on other things and and <hes> anyway so it's it'll be a nice little two game series but but more than that <hes> like you said the as a stretcher where like houston in the end the yankee so van if they can finish you know five hundred through that they're they're a decent shape they are. Are you know hey ma as somebody asked me in the reluctant as mail bag that i just posted somebody asked me maybe should chris. Davis consider cutting his hair like matt chapman. It seemed to work for chapman hits. The homer almost hit hits went out in the the final game at chicago centrally did it just kinda got hauled back in a little bit <hes> yet. Why not ah i love chris davis his hair but you know maybe it's time to to sacrifice it for for i guess a bigger bigger 'cause if he if he wants to consider that <hes> the way the d. h. <hes> in the national league park with what's chris davis's role he he he played so well in the field in pittsburgh you know he he looked actually really solid. He's always been a decent outfielder in terms of being able to go and get the ball make the placing should it's always just been that arm but he actually made some good throws in that series but making a superb catch in foul territory up against the wall. He incurred that side injury which really has impacted his his season terribly. He's not gonna play in the field in notionally game and i get i'm guessing might not ever play on the field again as a result talk which is a shame but he's just too valuable for the as even when he's struggling. They're not gonna try so he will be. I guarantee you. He will be getting some at bats. He'll be coming coming off the bench but he will not not be in the field. The good thing is for from the as perspective is chad. Penders been playing very well in the outfield. He's always very good outfielder and he's also <hes> hitting the ball better than he has all year so <hes> he might be a little bit of a wildcard in in that series <hes> robbie grossman getting on as how some good options out there. <hes> canna always likes to mix things up in san francisco. I think that just kind of figured out that he's got a lot of personality <hes> and loves to play the giants who he grew up rooting for so we might see some who we see about flip against bumgarner. I don't know what happened. If if mac max muncie got that kind of reaction what is mark canada do they're going to be looking out for that so he's with laureano out. He's he's doing a nice job in center and almost providing as much personality and passion slower ghana which stuff to do and of course we should mention you know. It's a two thousand nineteen. You've done some really nice work writing about memories of those nineteen eighty nine teams <hes> specially the giants who wrote a really nice pace coming up these series have really got to remind you of <hes> you know really special season for both teams in one thousand nine hundred nine yeah i was at the giants little get together the night before the reunion <hes> downtown hotel and just urine some guys talk. Yeah i mean they're thing was winning the pennant obviously they got swept by the way so there wasn't a whole lot of talk about the world series <hes> it was you know quite a season to win the division and then beat the cubs in was it five games with we'll clark going off etc <hes> but but <hes> with again with the few things i did hear about the world series..
"bay bridge" Discussed on A's Plus
"Honolulu who came onto talk through his incredible free solo climb of el capitan. Dan yosemite big part of the film is like the whole love story with my girlfriend and all that but i hadn't even met her when we started listening wherever you get your podcasts wild west today on as plus. We're delighted to welcome in john shea the chronicles national baseball writer. John is often a regular other on this podcast but we have not seen enough of you this year john. It's just wonderful to have you back especially with one of our favorite things. It's coming up this week. The first in the bay bridge series the as will be at the giants tuesday and wednesday <hes>. How do you see this so you know our our kind of our favorite beverage series <hes> especially with the as still in contention in the giants. Maybe playing a little bit better than i think people had expected earlier in the year but but not you know maybe not quite worthy as our will yeah. If these teams matched up this time of year in the past two seasons only one team would have had maybe maybe one team would have had something to play for but now both teams have something to play for the giants actually in it but i mean not really because half the league is in the national league wild card race. I mean literally. There's seven teams within three and a half games and the giants have happened to be three and a half out but you know the american league. Obviously they have a lot to play for the gays and all all they have to finish ahead a one team in this race unless boston makes some kind of crazy run here in the last two months which doesn't seem likely but they'll have to do is finish ahead of tampa bay or whoever finish the second in the central cleveland or minnesota the giants have to finish ahead a bunch of teams in the league like i says involved in this crazy nationally while carre so there's there's something to play for and that that's pretty cool because <hes> you know oftentimes the giants finished last the last a couple of years in the as had their bad stretch a few years ago where they weren't really in this time of year so now suddenly both teams are in it and that's that's the beauty of the wildcard because otherwise is it would not be the leaders of very close to first place at all yeah. It's <hes> it's always tougher. When you've got a ton of teams ahead of you that you know the the baseball people always we say really it's not the number of games back. It's the number of teams ahead of you because when you have to start leapfrog in so many teams and they're all playing each other down the stretch. The math starts to get a little complicated so obviously teams really wanted. Just go for the division. I don't think that's going to be very likely in either case the way the dodgers have played with the astros have played the <hes> have four games against the astros on this current essentially too weak homestand at the they've got to in san francisco and then a week and a half at the coliseum in a kind of a tough one you know they've got the astros coming in and they got the yankees and then they've got to against the giants to finish up at the coliseum so fun week the busy week but a tough one now <hes> i know you haven't seen the ice for a while. The thing that jumped out to me and you've probably noticed from afar is the rotation has just been <hes> so much better than we ever. They all spring we kept saying man with this. Rotation might not be good. We spent the offseason going. Who's even gonna pitch for them. A really it's turned into the strength drink of the team. The offense has been dragging <hes> and the bullpen has been radic as everyone knows what what are your thoughts looking at at the as current rotation especially really with some of the editions they made with roark and bailey who will go in the second game at san francisco that was supposed to be the big question mark coming in it was a big question mark last year you had <hes> a strong bullpen you knew yet <hes> deep and powerful lineup but in this case for whatever reason it's the rotation you're right fires facet of been just awesome since the all star break and <hes> you know without montages get the p._d. Suspension end. I you know maybe you have puck and luzardo come and come and quickly here. <hes> and that'll be good news in september <hes> but it's it it. It's cool to see these lower sculler games because <hes> the the as of not been able to you know the firepower ought to run over yesterday and as we speak it's monday here <hes> with <hes> chapman double almost a home run and then and then then the two run home run but but if if <hes> if chris davis comes around you know then then you know all bets are off. This is a mighty team once again but that's a really strange thing. He seems healthy but <hes> he seems out of rhythm timing. He's getting full. These swinger balls <music> out of the zone a. y. Y what do you see. Do you see because that was the one consistency in the lineup. You knew he was gonna hit. Forty home runs collect one hundred r._b._i.'s and hit it. <hes> was a two forty three to forty seven year and in this year is just not happening. It's you know the the injuries obviously affected him before the break he is now fully healthy but as many as melvin mentioned in chicago this week <unk> sometimes when you're injured you can get into some bad habits when you come back can throw your timing off. It's such when you're talking about hitting you know big league fastball or a breaking pitch. You're talking about you know just fractions of an inch inch here and there something different with your setup with your swing and of course your timing just a millisecond off and you're just not going to barrel ball and that's that's what we're seeing. We've seen a lot of <hes> you know. He's he's actually hitting the ball better but he's just not quite there. He's not quite barreling the ball up. He's having good at bats bats much better at bats recently. He's taken some walks.

He's a team guy but without as much a threat in the middle of the order at that affects matt olson his numbers have been a little little bit down recently and clearly has affected matt chapman. You can pitch around matt chapman a little bit more you can pitch around medals and a little bit more when when you don't have chris davis swing swinging the bat while they need him to get on on track the fact that as have stuck writing contention with chris davis doing very very little power wise and with china and intervene oh really not getting on track at all you know they've been waiting for them for months and months and every it's you know it's it's a half step forward to step back two steps back. It seems like it's pretty extraordinary <hes> and if they get any of those guys but especially davis to come back even partway to where they usually are they could be. They could be in pretty decent shape 'cause she essentially managed to do it without them. For for months now yet seems could be one of melbourne's. That's managing jobs given all that you just said what we say that allow right now who really had been there and most electrifying refine player the guy who kind of getting things going you know especially late in games. He's got you know kinda that plays with passion and had the knack for the big hit hit in <hes>. He's out until you know i. I'm going to say safe assumption. Maybe early september. That's a huge blow in here. The still are just hanging around. They will not go. We'll wait if that chance and you look at their schedule. They don't play anymore.
