"A great manager with Bruce Bochy, obviously, but you had one way of doing things your whole career. When you have a new manager come in, and a new coaching staff come in. Everything changes and you watch how veterans handle it. You watch how how they adjust to the new regime and what we watched last year with Crawford and Brandon Belt was remarkable. As to how they adapted to the change and it it wasn't quite as dramatic is getting traded to another team. But it's pretty dramatic. When all of a sudden you've had your security blanket that you've had your entire big league career taken away. And now you have a new A new group come in, and I thought the way that they handle that was remarkable. So I think that there's a lot left in the tank with with Crawford. I think there's a lot left in the tank with Belle. And and I do believe after what we saw last year in early spring training, there's a lot left in the tank with Buster Posey. So intriguing conversations. Yeah, it is, And I mean it just really startled. I was like, Whoa, but it's it's out there that they had. I guess Glaber Torres did not win them over at shortstop. They could move him back to second. Then they'd have to move. Let Mayhew somewhere but Anywhere, just just one of the first hot stove rumors to percolate. Make another one that cropped up I want to ask you about is the and this guy you could talk to us about. And this is something we talked about a lot with Pablo Sandoval through the years, but also maybe I don't know if you saw this with players Throughout your life, and I think Rick Russell comes to mind, too. But there's a story out now about Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Who we all think it's just, you know, unbelievable player and you would move heaven and earth to have on your team. It is now revealed that when he showed up at summer camp He was he was £30 overweight is up to 2 80. And he's now apologized to his team. And said he got back into shape and he said he's eating better now, But he's only 21. Mike. You wonder you worry about that. And it just gets me thinking about light weight problems in the in Major League baseball team. This is there are players who battle it all their lives and He's battling in a 21. That's a little bit alarming. Well, it is and first on regressive it. What is it about him? That makes you say he's great? But first, I just his swing When I look at his swing, I'm like in love with it. It's the most vicious hack and I think it's a Power hack, and I like a like a power hitter. Yeah, but what has he done? I mean, he hasn't done anything with 20. She hasn't done anything. I mean, really want more bombs, and he comes in with All the hype it and I think he's got rushed. I think that you know he was given the the title of chosen one early in his career, which I don't think he really I don't think he really earned it. I don't think he really went to the minor leagues and put up the kind of numbers that would give you that type of expectation that he's going to be. Ah, pretty all star. I mean, he was, you know, I see him on. On Twitter cm on Instagram and he be hitting along home run but is usually during batting practice. You know, it wasn't something in the game, so yeah, the guy's got power. Great. Well, Are you a hitter? I mean, can you make adjustments within a game? What do you know about it? So I second generation guys dead? Vladimir Senior mean he taught everything? No. He's exactly like his dad undisciplined. He's a hack. Now His father is a Hall of Famer granted, but this kid has a long ways to go and the one thing that he has to do. He has to get control of his diet. He cannot eat himself out of the game because you can get away with 30 or 40 extra pounds early in your career when you're 21 years old, But you can't when you're 32. I mean, look what happened. Publish Animal I mean, he cut his career short he really has. And it's a shame because he's extremely gifted. I don't think that That Vladimir grow Junior has shown me the type of talent that published Sandoval had. And I hope the guy does. Well, I hope he maximizes his down hoping comes agree out becomes a hole just like his dad. He looks like he's a great kid. He looks like a great teammate. And he's a guy that loves the ballpark. I mean, I love that about him. In regards to his talent. I think he has not proven to us yet that he deserves the reputation that has been given a young age. Certainly be 21 years old. Battling away. Problem is there is a red flag, you know, comes to mind also, Mike is ah, here. We're going to all these heavy guy. Prince fielder didn't his career. I had a neck injury. I know, but Didn't There's another theory that he thought that he fought the battle of the belt for a while, Um do you think backto like Bob Horner was kind of chunky or my misremembering there? I don't remember. No, no, I think because his career short too. I mean, he wanted pin in Japan were on me, and that was a tough out for me. I think Bob Warner is the quickest middle in hitter I ever saw. I tried to jam him in in Chicago when Dad threw a ball that was off the plate to see movement running on his hands and good nineties, and it almost hits him. And his balls shove all part of the ball park And I thought, my God, what? So he comes up the next time and I'm gonna I'm gonna flip this guy. I'm knocked him down. And I threw a ball right at his shoulder. You know, he did. He did out of the ballpark, and I said, that's it for me. I'm away and then my whole career I was a tough battle. And I don't think he ever maximized his town. I think he himself out of game Prince feel the same deal. Cut it short. You cannot carry that type of weight and play everyday Baseball is everyday. And sooner or later you're Your knees, your hips, your ankles They're gonna wear out on going to cut your career short..

Coming up, we'll be talking about Andrew mccutchen. We'll be talking about Dallas kaikal and Craig kimbrel. What's going on there? Let's get to it. Emphas- Gershon play by play man for ESPN on Sunday night baseball. And of course, four works for the MLB network. And in a previous life met you were a broadcaster for the scene Diego Padres. And you got to know one Bruce Bochy. So it was pretty cool last night to see him. Get number one thousand. Yeah, it really was I I'm positive knowing him as I do. And you know him as well BUSTER positive this was not what he envisioned as swan song, managing a last place team with very little play for this year other than, you know, grossing up a few nights here and there and maybe some individual goals, how ever the accomplishments do. And I just I just love the fact that, you know, when you look up from Boches name on the all time managerial wins list is nothing but hall of famers. And I think even without the round numbers in terms of total wins win three World Series titles, and five years, you had a pretty good chance of going to Cooperstown PA. Is it positive that, that's where both is gonna end up? Oh, no doubt about it. Given the success. They had the one round number. I kinda would love to see him get right now. He's got nine thousand nine hundred fifty one wins. I love to see him. Get to two thousand you know, we'll see if the giants can finish that off. He here's the cheers that he got after the game last night. This from the San Francisco Giants Twitter account. They were Bush just one thousand win with giant. Insult to get the two thousand. That's get it from this year. So a big cheer for him after the game last night, some of the, the, the stories that came out were, then when he met with reporters he absolutely reeked of beer, he had, of course had a big grin on his face. I tell people all the time about Bruce Bochy, the absolute core of what makes him great as a managers. The fact that he likes people. And I think that's I think that's what was so great about Bobby Cox manager. I thought that's what Joe Torre did really just he likes people. Yeah. That's well said he likes people he likes to laugh. Choice conversation in Joyce, the human part of the team. And I think, you know, guys like that, unfortunately, you get typecast now as being you literate to advanced metrics, and I, I don't think that's the case with all these guys. I know that, you know that Bruce Boches and a terrifying cone is of the world..

"All the warriors of putting a finishing touch on their game two victory over the Houston Rockets. It's one twelve one four with about eleven six left to go there. So that's all in the bag. The warriors are going to be up two games to non the San Jose Sharks. Where they really good road performance against Colorado tonight, Logan, couture a hat trick. They went for two to take the series lead their two to one. However, the giants, and that's why we're start get beaten up pretty soundly by the dodgers by final of ten to three. We welcome you in. We'll go to midnight tonight live from oracle park. At a lot of good stuff plan for you starting with you as always special shout outs. Anybody who is on their way home from the ballpark tonight. Definitely wanna hear your your reactions your stories from inside the yard. Let's talk a little bit about everything that is going on APRIL's done April has died. And so I think a good time to hear from you. Give the giants grade. How would you assess their April, and where they sit and there are some obvious things that are on the negative sides such as being in last place, but believe it or not there are some good things to highlight as well. Based on what certain individuals have done and collectively even and we'll get to that. For instance. I'll give the giants to see to give them a straight up. See? And that's because I could come up with five things on the plus and five things on the minus even at all out. It's going to be an even see. But I wanna know what grade you would give him for the month of April, eight thousand eight Cain, be our. We'll get into that. The giants took a look at type block tonight, it it was not good. He comes up from Sacramento a couple of days ago and Bruce Bochy admitted tonight that it was to cover their bullpen for a night. And that's exactly what he did. And that's why they left them out there, even though. He did not have much and it gives up seven earned runs. However, this could dot dot dot lead to something that I know a lot of giants fans have been clamoring for and that's exciting young prospects and with tie block performing tonight going along way and not doing well, my guess would be not confirmed, but my guess would be you're going to see him get optioned back down within the next twenty four to thirty six hours because on Friday. I dare Collins turn in the rotation is is here, and he will be on the injured list and not ready to go. Who's gonna start that game? Odds on favorite is Tyler Beatty. And that's exciting. Because this was a guy that had a lot of buzz around him. And then suddenly it wasn't working out. And then there was renewed optimism before this season started spring training only bolstered that and what he's done in Sacramento. So far start this season. Has got the excitement even further. He's really really performing really performing his strikeout per nine is up over thirteen really performing well excited to see what he can do at the big league level. I do not have it on any authority that this is happening. But that's my guess. So that's an interesting thing. But just to give you an idea on April grade, and how I come to the letter C here are the five things on the plus side that I found for the giants so far these things have gone. Well, the good is the bullpen the shark. The trades the panda and the defense. Those are the five the bullpen has been lights out. That's not only good for their games. But it's good for building assets. Those bullpen arms are going to be wanted this year by other teams, they can turn that into prospects. The shark has been fantastic, first and foremost, just to see the look on his face the happiness and the comfort of knowing that he's healthy, and he's gone out there, and he's pitched very very well. Including last night five scoreless in three two win over the dodgers, are the trades have been good the trades. Once the season started, Kevin pillar and Tyler Allston. You may look at that and go, well, wait a minute, you know, plazas moments, but he's not huge average. And Tyler Austin doesn't even play that much. When you look at what they gave up. They got something in return that Israel and Austin, even though it's a small sample size has got one of the best batting averages on the team. And I don't need to tell you about the spark Palomar has provided. So I like those traits the panda. He's been really good. The giants need to continue to find ways to get him. More at bats. He's been their best hitter. No doubt. And then the defense has just been absolutely incredible. They play and I know some people get tired of pitching and defense. But you do have to point it out and give credit. It's been fantastic. And even players struggling at the plate right from Brandon Crawford to Evans. Longoria. They've been really really good out in the field. The bad the one that's obvious right off the top is the hitting the five came up with for the bad, the hitting the attendance the record the morale the blend, and I'll explain each of those are the hitting I don't need to say a whole lot. It's it's a difficult watt sometimes and and they're struggling up and down the entire board. Brandon Crawford for instance, finished off the month of April twenty for one hundred and even Mendoza line. And you know, you listen certain guys have, you know, BUSTER Posey's starting to hit for instance, you can see guys have flashes. But the collective is is just not up to par in in the major leagues the attendance you looking at a dodgers and Yankees series. Where games are not fully sold out. That's new for all of us. It's new for all of us to try and process that idea so that's a little that's a little odd. And I think it sends a message. The record is twelve eighteen that's not great. That's last place in the National League West when I say the morale, by the way, I don't want that to be received as the guys themselves actually, quite the opposite. I think is true not only based on my observation. But based on their own words, I think the team gets along. Really, really? Well, I think that they feel like the chemistry is absolutely right. When I say the morale I'm talking about San Francisco Giants baseball, collectively. Therefore, I mainly talking about you. I think that the morale of the giants and the giants fan is is in a tough spot. And then lastly, the blend and that is a reference, quite frankly, Defar Hans -iety and Bruce Bochy being a part of the same staff. I don't necessarily know anything about their personal relationship. But it's obvious to me. That they don't necessarily see baseball the same way. And that's not any surprise Boji old school citing new school. There are moments where that that sort of you can see it with the decisions being made on the field where butts heads a little bit. And you know, that that's what makes this transitional year as Bruce Boches last year. I know that for a lot of fans they would love to see more of a positive vibe just for Boetsche because he's meant so much to this organization in this city, and therefore they love to see everybody. Let's just do it Boches way. One more time by the same token organization is being turned over and handed to somebody who does it the new way. And and the way that the rest of baseball is doing it. And so that's a difficult thing to navigate, and and you see it sometimes with decisions I wonder if the old Bruce Bochy if he were just sitting. In the dugout three years ago. And yet a scoreless tie after five innings. Jeff's Marga was up second in the inning. What do you pinch hit for him? He last night. He told me in the end, it was a no brainer. But I wonder if that were two years ago, what would happen? My doubt states that the same decision would be made. So I'll give him a c and I do think that's probably being somewhat kind. But that's the great. I'll give him. What grade? Would you give the giants eight? Oh, eight kmby are we'll get to your calls in just a second. The warrior game is final by the way. One fifteen one zero nine the warriors have a two games to non lead. Now, they've got to go to Houston. But by the same token, isn't it really hard to imagine the warriors losing four times in five nights. They have a really nice stranglehold now on this series. This game had a completely different look. As far as the officials in the way, the players handled it we'll get to that a little bit later on in the evening. And also there was an odd report that came out about the forty Niners earlier today that had a lot of people scratching their head. So we'll get to that. And Brian peacock our buddy on the locked on forty Niners podcast is going to join us on the show tonight as well before we go out to the phones, I wanna share one completely off the subject of the final score cool thing that happened tonight. And this is something I think is always great for fans. Remember, you go to the ballpark, and you watch your favorite team lose to their rival by seven runs, and sometimes he might get to the car and not really in the best mood that didn't go the way you wanted it to go. But I think it's fun to remember that everybody involved in the whole darn process of a baseball game. Are just a bunch of people who have all kinds of things. Good and bad going on on a on an afternoon on an evening on a Tuesday. No matter the final score. And an example of that was cool tonight. I stayed in the press box. Normally, I would go see Bruce Boches visit with the media, but they broadcast that into the press box. So I decided to sit there and listen to Bruce Bochy talk while we also had monitors. And so I could monitor what was going on with the warriors rockets game that was the choice. I made and happened into seeing something down the field that I don't think anybody else with the media actually saw all of a sudden there was a crack of the bat, and you look down right beyond the giants dugout, and there's a big part of blue smoke and a man and a woman hugging one another and like, wait a minute. Which is a gender reveal down on the field. And the man was wearing a giants uniform. And as you all know names on the back of the jerseys, and he was kind of at an angle and some like who is that. It was ball. I mean, it could be a bat. Boy, it could be someone who was dressed up as a giant to do the gender reveal. It was giants reliever. Nick, Vincent, and his wife and their little son who's about to have a little brother. And so inside the giant clubhouse after the game. They beat by seven against their rivals. But in one corner of the of the clubhouse for just a couple of minutes. There were huge smiles and huge hugs mainly from the corner. Where a lot of the bullpen guys are Vincent's locker right next to will Smith's, for example. And and congratulations and big smiles all the way around as Nick, Vincent and his wife. Did agenda reveal and they're having a boy that was kind of fun. You know, turn to frown upside down for some people inside the clubhouse for the team. All right. Your turn next. If you're on hold stay right there. We do have a couple of open lines. If you want to jump on in. What grade do you give the giants for the month of April?.

"All right. Got Pat Corbin yesterday. We take a break from warrior breakdown and Kevin Durant sorta ogling ogling Durant's thirty eight point game to talk about the giants who could not hit that Corbin yesterday, and they wound up losing the series of the nationals. They fall to eight and twelve on the season four and a half out in the west. They go to Pittsburgh where Madison Bumgarner will be on the hill tonight. Piracy good ball ten and six actually believe it or not a top the central with Milwaukee. So a lot to get to with my Cuco haven't talked to Mike since Tuesday morning, Mike. How are ya? Well. To to watch the bum today. Get them back on track. Let's go. Yeah. For sure. And he's the guy who you know, obviously is the leader. And we'll see him go against a decent pirates. Seem we start with yesterday though, Mike and there's nothing more frustrating than a strike zone that Bruce Bochy and Brandon belt don't like they get tossed. I don't know how you feel about it. You know acquires around Pires, we do this a lot. But it's rare to see and belt guitarist in the same game. He's a young player and he's inconsistencies in his own. And they really frustrate you. And you know, especially you get. You know, you have opportunity and you'll have a position you've worked hard to get there. The guy the hill, you're facing and you as a whole lot. But also. Sudden guy makes a pitch place six inches. You get run-up strike three spread over and. And you've worked your kill off that one opportunity, and you feel like you've had to take it away. Who? In called that pitcher strike the whole game. And that inconsistency is is what drives dugouts nuts. Just a manager hitting coach buddy of the team. And once it happens and guys openly bitch and moan about it. That everybody else has refuse as a shorter colors of it. And now the sudden you have that negativity that runs through actually go up there at dissipating, you're gonna have a bad call against you and intake. It just so sensitive and way when you're losing. But it's it's it's part of the deal inconsistent strikes. You're gonna have one once in a while. And the thing that you have to fight through is that frustration that you'd get collectively? And that's why I never liked it. When guys came back to the dugout it just their helmet, we're slammed they're bad or or just, you know, they go off they have some snappy. It just wears on everybody. And it just puts that little level of negativity in the mind everybody else, and it makes it easier for somebody else to do it. One guy starts pretty soon. Two guys are doing a pretty soon. It's just your minds guard. You have to be able as a professional to deal with it. It's it's it's part of it. Some of the first of the Paul our it was a great zone of all time. It was it was total pitchers on and into the next night. It was small CB Buckner. It was like he was trying to baseball to see you know, there was no zone there. There were no corners though. Deal with it. A pro. So I I since the frustration. I feel the frustration. But if that's your reason for a loss that you know, what that you've missed something here. Mentally, and it's it's frustrating. It is as mad thing as it is it's no excuse areas. My cook on the Adam Copeland in for paulie, MAC off a little getaway for a couple of days. Copes crew or belt mentioned this after the game as baseball players in pro athletes. It's your responsibility to adjust to the game when the gives you a side of a plate or takes part of the plate away. He think it's an empire responsibility to do the same as he adjust to the game like a pitcher or batter is observing the balls and strikes. For the most part. I do think that that's the for you get. There and they want to be perfect. They want to be the best that they can be very few times. Have I witnessed an empire that gets an attitude about a pitcher hitter? And just, you know, just sticks it up his nose for whatever reason you back in the old days. But now there's a report card every day. The judge these guys, and they they're they're intimidated by them, they won't they wanna have a good report card. If you have a ninety six percent success ratio on your balls strikes. You had a horrible night. So you get an idea of just how high their standards are. And you know, they're human. I mean, I in defensive I'm I really think that they worked to be as good as they can be having said that there are guys that are better than others. And they're guys that are not very good. But like I said, I it's just like, you know, wind you can't control the wind and every day. The wind has something to say about your your game. You gotta identified you gotta deal with it. If left field is open window out there. You got pitch away from it. And you. You have to deal with whatever strikes that is given to us up are, you know, as unfair as it may seem certain nights you have to deal with it. Jill here too on a Friday morning by Jill. Yeah. Could break down Pomeranz. He has a four point eight two ERA heats not really with the giants have hoped for walking lotta hitters and given a four bombs. What are your takeaway? So far with Palmer and unique. I like him when we saw spring training and got to know him. You know, there were times he'd go out there, basically guy. He's a curve ball fastball guy. Lots of deception is delivery and works out the first base out of the rubber and against right handed. Hitters would he comes out and comes out? He can pick up. He could pitch in on hand. That's his goal staffer said inside strike at the hands. And then elevate he we saw spring training where he would throw his curveball and ties when he wouldn't even talk for strike. It was enough of an eye wash to where would set up the fastball. But the key was he was consistent with the fastball. A nice command of it. You'd flop up a curve ball. Get a guy just look at it and said he buried at. Fastball and his hands break a bad jammed the guy, and which not many guys can do you know, which makes Palmer engineer because he has some deception is delivery right now he hasn't had the same fastball. Command that he hadn't spring training at times. Curveball. But the same fastball command where he just berries inside location on the hands for both sides of the plate. He hasn't been as good with it. So, you know, I think that's where he goes forward. He needs to improve upon that best ball command. So maybe out of whack just a little bit. You know is philosophies pretty good. And that's usually the first indicator that that you're your mechanics aren't good. You start to lose a couple feet on on the fastball. But you know, you can be better with his with his location with his fastball. So I don't think he's at far up yet seven strike yesterday. And, you know, over on numbers battle though, you know, it's just a little sloppy. Stuff's good. His arm. Feels good to me. That's the keys healthy. I go along giants fans hoping that he would be involve some wins. Unfortunately, though in two four eighty two. So he's got some some work to do to kind of get back onto the positive side of the ledger, but the other guy, and you know, if you're looking for a positive, listen, nobody giant fans are so ready. And have totally given up on Mark Milan-San, totally given up. He came in yesterday with the first and third. Nobody out got out of it to strikeouts. The evidence is starting to mount. I mean, we talked about Pomeranz seven a rough start this guys had the opposite, Mike, how do you explain what you're seeing with Mark Melanson? And then I guess the second part would be how does this affect his role in the bullpen? I mean, I mean this stuff there is armed feels good. And if you go back in the spring training, he was horrible. He was horrible point from thinking they're gonna cut him a check they're gonna let them walk. And then the last two outings you started to see the little jump on the cut their bad late movement and a quick again. And now sudden the twelve six curveball which makes him totally unique. It's it's quick. And he looked like his old self. Okay. Do you look good? Once look it's been every time out. And so I think if he's got his arm back he's gone through the hell of dealing with an arm injury. He picks short last year couple times when his are wasn't quite ready wanted to justify that contract. He went out to give giants whatever he could still wasn't sound. And now he is he's healthy. And as he goes forward, they're gonna keep giving them, you know, he's gonna keep getting later ending setups. You come a new person third with nobody out and you're on the road and it's a two run game. Or it's close ballgame. And you get out of it with two strikeouts. You're you're you're going up the ladder. So that's been a really great story. And you know, every rooting for because they pro and he just, you know, basically kept his mouth shut when things weren't going. Good. Tried to grind it out. One outs going good and everybody's happy for him. And it's pretty cool. That is all good. But we talked to you three times a week. And I don't want to touch his every time but since his Vincent's Tuesday. A little evidence. And they just still the offense is so interesting because they scored runs on Tuesday and Wednesday and yet they lose the game. And then they don't score runs yesterday. I'm reading from Henry showman's game story in the chronicle. He writes, the lineup is one large mass of struggling hitters what he wrote, and you we talk about so much. But what did you see anything when the offense since we last talked to, you know, couple of bombs there in one of the games, but Mike the offense as they continue to try to find maybe even a first inning. You know what I mean? I have done it yet. But I definitely think better Bessis they've got the road they've gotten some some better weather and they've gotten into more hitter friendly ballparks the big concern. I have is BUSTER Posey. And I I've never seen BUSTER out balances much, and I've never seen him not barrel balls, usually two or three times hit the ball the nose. And now, it's not happening breaking ball him to death. And I don't know if you see it. That's my biggest concern, you know. I don't think it's an hips Udal. He cannot throw to second base better than he saw right now. I mean, he's throwing the second base was such accuracy, which such power. And the only way you can do that is you've got to come out low and you've got to throw from a low position with your hips. You couldn't do that last year. He it'd be a little more upright because he had paid internships. He couldn't throw a low position. Now, he on rocket. So I know hips feel better and. Just has to translate the plate a couple of times. You know, we saw in the last home where he would spin on on inside passed balls. And it's like, yeah, there it is best feedback. But these just not barrel in the ball up enough. So I I'm concerned as as the giants go forward as to whether or not he seeing it, you know. I mean why their explanation? Why weather breaking baltimat-? He's not picking spin up. He's been off balance. He's been on foot a lot and he's been reaching a lot. And I'm, you know, this is something to really watch very closely as they go forward. You can't hide before spot. And there's a a way that they could give him a little relief because he feel he put so much pressure of south to produce. And what he's producing grinds out. I mean, you feel like he should be the catalyst of this of this lineup. And maybe a little pressure off in the moon down the line for couple of days. I don't know, but we need to see him barrel more balls. And that's that's that's that's that has to happen..

After the show today say what's up to the king, Bruce, Bochy, etc. And so walk me through last night.

"Oracle park. I'm John Mina with Jack manager Bruce Bochy today's bocce before the giants traditional home opener against a nontraditional fo the rays from the American League east and Boccia it's been raining all through the morning, and what's the latest forecast that you've heard about today's game? Well, right now, we're on schedule. So that's good news. You know, we did not take batting practice on the field had to keep it tarp because of the rain, but they think we'll be fine start on time. So that's the plan. And that's how we have the guys geared up for all right now. You're starting pitcher today is Derek Rodriguez. And it's always it's an honor to pitch as the starter on on an opening day. But it also is something that quite often will be a guy with a lot of experience because there's so many destroy. Actions zone surrounding a home opener like this. But Derek Rodriguez. He's not an ordinary young guy. Because this this is the start of what would be his first full year in the big leagues. Right. And you know, we're Derek just the fact that he's been around a game so long with this his dad Pudge Rodriguez. The he's he seen everything he's comfortable in a major league clubhouse. He showed that last year when he came up. So I don't like anything can distract this guy. And he has great pocus. And but you know, what John along that line? We'll talk to the players briefly about, hey, let's keep her focused because there is a lot going on opening day. A lot of demands on the guy's tickets things like that. But also the ceremonies in the you know, you have to get ready to play the game. So I will remind them about that. So you'll have a team meeting before the squad game. Yeah. Well, I'm going to give it they hitters and and talk to them because they're they're the ones getting revved up and everything. And then, you know, we're we're going to acknowledge him people. So I just wanna make sure we do keep our focus. All right. It's opening day at oracle park the giants and the raise more. Coachee right after this. San Francisco fans in the no, no some of the shortest lines for drug behind the center field wall. And they should always bring a coat to the games just in case and your local AllState agents.

"There we go. That'll do that came to a quick and abrupt ended net, and maybe Mercifully, maybe, thankfully, that's it for spring training. And you know, what whenever we're talking about an exhibition season. I think no matter what sport all when you get to the end of it. It always is kind of thankful feeling. And so even though this one was abrupt and outside of I think a few fans, and we have some funding response is actually from a few fans at the ballpark are like, wait a minute. We got more. We got more ball to see I think everybody is thankful to get to this moment and say, okay, let's play some baseball. Now without said, this is going to be an incredibly interesting call it approximately thirty six hours, I think it's actually thirty seven until the giants have to produce a firm twenty five man. Roster who's going to be on it are there. Any surprises laughed. Bruce Bochy will be meeting with the media, very soon. And I'm expecting at least one very interesting conversation or response to come out of that meeting. So we'll discuss that as that comes down. But just a back everyone up, and if you are now just heading to your car, if you're on your way home from the giants as game which only went six innings, and therefore the as it by final of four to two we would love to hear from you at eight oh eight can be are you can text in four one five eight away. Camby are Mark it here with you for the ride home and to talk a little giants baseball. And now we get to go ahead and preview this season officially but last night. Bruce Bochy was asked do you want to go ahead name you're starting rotation? And to paraphrase is answer was no. No now. Yeah. And then Farhan Zaidi's spoke to the media before the game tonight. A few nuggets came out of that. And we'll get into that coming up here in a little bit. But he was asked would you like to go ahead and name a starting rotation? And he said, no, and maybe Bruce boats, you will have more on that later tonight. Maybe but just to let everyone know here's the timeline of events from last night to now with regard to the starting rotation Bruce Bochy last night declines to name anything other than the fact that Madison Bumgarner will start game one. So he's your opening day starter shocker, we all knew that. So that's Thursday afternoon. What happens after that? I'm really waiting on this because there has been the assumption all along that the remainder of the rotation would be filled out by these four drew Pomeranz. Derek holland. Jeff samardzija. Derek rodriguez. That's the rest of your rotation in some order. But for some reason the giants brass won't say that they won't say it. And I said for some reason all I know is there is a reason why I don't know. If you're going to start guessing that one of those players could be part of a trade. It's hard to imagine that player not being Jephson Marga. They've already announced Baumgartner's your starter. He's your as we know that Derek Rodriguez is not going anywhere pomeranians in Holland. Both of whom have been good are relatively cheap and recently signed free agents. That leaves some are. So Marjo who has had a positive sprang prior to tonight when he did not look good. But what I imagine a lot of teams the giants included. But if others are scouting them what they're looking at is his velocity velocities been good. It's been back to the old shark it at times south of spring is touch ninety three ninety four. I was at the ball game tonight. And he was only hitting maybe about ninety one. But still if you had a deal in place that wasn't official yet another team. I would doubt is suddenly going to get scared off by four runs in three and two thirds innings. They're not going to be that focused on a flash in the pan moment, what they are going to be focused on is does he look healthy. Was he hitting the right numbers on the gun? I don't know if ninety three down to ninety one in some way would scare someone off. But I wouldn't think so so we're sort of bracing ourselves right now for. Or the potential of what is going to happen next with the starting rotation. So we'll Bruce Bochy and again, this should happen within the next. I would say half hour at most probably less. We're gonna hear from Bruce Bochy the media will that is assembled still over there at oracle park. I'm sure that's going to be one of the first questions asked at I cannot wait to hear how he answers it. If he declines again, then. I don't know what to tell you discussions are ongoing. I think it's ten in the morning on Thursday that an official roster needs to be produced. We know about the Straaten trade from last night. Suarez has been set down tie block has been sent out all of those things happened before Zayda declined to name the rotation again today. So it wasn't those three guys they were trying to protect its somebody in that group of five. And then the only starters left on the roster right now, so something's up and hopefully, we'll get a little bit more on that soon. As soon as we do we will pass it along to you. I see some texts coming in on this right now we'd love to hear from your data. Wait can be are also on this. Because I think this is another huge nugget. They came out of the conversation for Audi had before the the game today. He spoke of Pablo Sandoval and to paraphrase what he said he is incredibly versatile can be a helpful right handed bat off the bench for us. Which we need and then it went dot dot dot. But there was a but in there. And a but this close to start a season is not a good side. The but wise he doesn't play shortstop. Other than Alan Hansen. I don't really know who does you might be able to. In spots. Think about putting in harvest solarte's over there at shortstop. Maybe you'd definitely wouldn't want to do it long term. And the team is admittedly worried about either overextending Brandon Crawford or not being ready to go. I should something happen. So as they are now moving off the idea of three catchers, they'll go with it sounds like just to they're still toying with how many pitchers on the staff. They have announced that both. Trevor got and Travis Bergen those guys are likely to be on the roster. So what are you doing out there twelve men or thirteen as far as the pitching staff is concerned? If it's thirteen which they said was there lean you've got very few spots left. And here's what I want to ask you because they always call him fan. Favourite Pablo Sandoval as well changes full name. It's not Pablo Sandoval. It's not the panda. It's fan favourite Pablo Sandoval as as a clubhouse presence. He's a big personality. He's beloved by the guys. What's your reaction? If Santa doesn't make this club. This club, which is dying for hitters is dying. For fun is dying for personality. What happens if Pablo Sandoval is not on this team? And if he is indeed such a fan favorite, then it's up to you the fans to speak. Now, let the giants here how you'd react. If Pablo Sandoval is let go by this organization. That's a very real possibility in the next twenty four hours. So would love to get your reaction. Your phone calls on that eight. Oh, eight candy are I will read some of these texts coming up at also shortly coming up here this hour. Jessica Kleinschmidt with NBC sports bay area will jump on here. And we'll get her reaction to the start of the season for this club. Mark rather with you on these sports later. Found.

"Are welcome in and get evening following a giants. Six two four win down in Arizona. That'll be their second to last game in Arizona, one more to go. And then they make the trip. In fact, they're headed back to the bay tomorrow night and then the bay bridge series going to start on Sunday and Oakland couple of ball games at oracle park on Monday and Tuesday, and then it is an off day Wednesday before baseball that counts will start next Thursday in San Diego, lots to get to and we will have mardi Laurie coming up here in about fifteen minutes. So lots of discussed with the giants right now. In fact, some interesting news has just broken from the giants. Courtesy of Bruce Bochy three players three more players that have been named as guys who will be on the opening day roster. Two of them are not as surprised at all one of them. I know. No. If I would call a surprise. But it's interesting to me that he got singled out and named by Bruce bocce is someone who made the team because he's definitely a bubble guy. One of those bullpen guys. But Nick, Vince it will make the team Bruce Bochy. Singling him out. Nick Vincent will be on the opening day. Roster says Bruce Bochy and they said the same about Geraldo power and harvest solarte's. So get used to those names. That's no surprise par right now. Very much so looking like the everyday right fielder, or at least a starting right fielder for the giants on opening day. And then solarte's who is a fantastic Swiss army knife. I've watched his career actually quite a bit. And he has absolutely ripped the ball this spring, including a three-run Homer in the game tonight. And so has earned himself a spot on the team and he's guy playing the infield. He can play in the outfield. He can do a lot of things hits the ball with some pop from the left side of the plates. So solarte's is in. So there's your news. There's a lot of interesting stuff that's gone on with the team today. Both within the clubhouse and beyond Bryce Harper had some stuff to say today that you're absolutely going to have to hear we'll get to that Cameron may been was released from the team before the ball game tonight. So that has a fact and a little bit. A trickle down theory going on now without outfield that seems to maybe get someone and lose somebody almost on a daily basis right now. So we'll get into that. Certainly. We'll take your calls. If you're up listening to the game have any giants thoughts or questions tonight. Eight oh, eight can be our four one five eight eight can be are on the text line. And then later on in the evening. We'll definitely get to some college basketball, Casey Jacobsen is gonna join us all what I thought was actually kind of a a sleepy day as far as March madness was concerned. And that led to a lot of talk about Tom Izzo. We'll get to that later. But right now, we'll keep it giants. It was a split squad. Mad bum. Got shelled a start earlier tonight against the royals. Is there any concern there? We'll have some observations with regard to the newest giant Connor Joe who started and played out in left field in the game that they just one against the Rockies, and we got updates. Regarding Mark Mouland, sin and more. So we'll do all of that coming up in just a moment again, mardi Lori will join us at the bottom of the hour. Stick around. We've got it covered from top to bottom. Mark Willard here on the sports later..

Good friend, the Andre Jordan. Fickle be fine. In New York. Totally happening. Rick Barnes is no longer coaching at Texas. JJ watt was the grand marshal at the Daytona five hundred over the weekend.

"You had to take your shirt off to have a good time. Buffoon five. Cut it in half time. What a maroon. That was a shirt show. And I had Adam cans goody, boo shoes. Oh. Next the game. See more entertaining. Now when you look back that was real shirt show. Yes club the president's names. There's like millions of sports guys have the same names as president. How is he reigned himself in for our very tough? Well, maybe he has some that are modern day athletes, and maybe there's some creativity. I'll find Lincoln Kennedy and Ted Washington. Oh, I know. But but there there's nobody who is playing now that you come up with these smell. What Barack is cooking out what in there? God. Well, Clinton Portis. There you go. Every week on the St James harden capable. The norm. Nixon way white what? James, k Polk. He's James harden. K polk. Actual full. That's yeah. That's Reagan up show. Reggie bush. We. Yeah. We've done we've done this. And we shouldn't Reggie Andrew Jackson. I actually I saw this from Darren Revell. He tweeted this out Bruce bocce announced that he's going to step down following the twenty nine thousand nine seasons. The manager of the giants and he's going to be a whole Famer won three World Series. Three, and I think five years and he's going to end up with two thousand wins in his career. He's up there on all time playoff wins. But really the most important stat with Bruce Bochy is his hats has the largest head in baseball history. At least that's what they believe. That's unofficial eight and one eight inches. So he's got an eight head. We should ask for the hat from his last game. Okay. This is what Darren Revell tweeted out when Bruce Bochy played he had a special order batting helmet to fit him. And with each new team. He took the batting helmet with him. And then he would just get a fresh coat of paint on the batting helmet. So he had a helmet that was made up with the Astros and the Mets. So Bruce Bochy the manager. And I remember in spring training. The late Kevin towers, and we're at a bar in Scottsdale, spring training and the giants home is in Scottsdale. And I remember seeing Bruce there, and so I said, you know, we used to talk about your eight head like how many beers could we get in your batting helmet. And he said, well six pack and ice like he was all in on. And he said, yeah. People always want to know, they always wanna put on my hat just to see how big it is. But Bruce Bochy wonderful career and. Three World Series titles in two thousand winds. I'm trying to think he's one of ten managers in history to win at least three World Series titles. The other nine are in the hall of fame. Fourth all time postseason went. He'll he'll have over twenty two thousand wins after this season coming up..

"I think that's going to be huge for the angels. Did. Did you agree with me that the money's almost relevant than it is? Yeah, I mean check. Yeah. You know, you know, Mike more than you know, obviously than I do. But look he's making thirty four million the next two years, you know, per season. So he has his money already. He's going to get it. No matter who ends up signing him do deal. So yeah, I think it's going to be word as he wanna play. All right. I wanna ask you about Bruce Bochy and his legacy because I'm completely biased. I was covered Bruce Bochy when he was a third base coach with the Padres. I wrote the story when he became the Padres manager for the San Diego union Tribune, I said at the top of the show I played rec league basketball with them. Fifteen feet. I've known him forever. And I as he's gone through this as he went through the World Series in two thousand fourteen thought was okay, cemented it. He's he's going to be a hall of Famer someday. What do you think? Yeah. No doubt. Right. I mean, he ten managers have won three World Series. The other nine are in the hall of fame. So even though his career record is a few games under five hundred no doubt. He's a hall of Famer. And Josh could always hire him as the deep voice guy. After return, I'm not pleased with wiscon-. Yeah. Look at he always seemed to do as best work in the postseason the way he maneuvered those three giants World Series teams. I know Bumgarner carried that team in fourteen. But you know, he was playing Travis if it in left field and they want a World Series. You know, he had a different closer all three seasons on that team. So his best work came in October the overall resume eleventh in wins three World Series titles. Yeah. No-brainer hall of Famer. One of my favorite stories about Boetsche after Travis Ishikawa with home run when they won the pennants. I was doing stuff on the field. And sportscenter said, look, and you grab some member of the giants. So I run up the stairs in San Francisco at AT and T park and duck my head into Boches office. And he's there, and I say votes could you come on sportscenter. And he goes, yeah. And he gets up and starts walking toward me. So BUSTER gotta be honest with you. We had a couple of pops here. Like, we just had a couple of like we just did. It toast your couple shots. I wanna make sure that I'm okay. And I was like bocce tell you what I'll listen to the words in your first answer. And I'll throw it back to. I think it was Steve Levy who was the host at night. And I'll throw it back to him. If I hear anything said, okay, no problem. And so he moved down the steps and went out into the interview and sounded absolutely fine. But you know, that's classic boats. Right there. That's a good one. Here's a this isn't a story factoid. That quite as good. But it's fun. I saw this on Twitter credit the guy that pointed out guy named Christopher Camco. Bruce Bochy has the only walk off home run ever off Nolan. Ryan did that nine hundred eighty five. Wow. There's a cool factoid for verified. It is true. He's also the career home run leader from players born in France. So there you go nice. He also has a one thousand batting average in the World Series one one for one. I think for the Padres in one thousand nine hundred three. Yes. He's he's been in uniform for four. Yeah. Every Padres playoff game because he was on the eighty four team and all the time they were in the playoffs. He was the manager in the nineties in two thousand so Mr. Padre next to twenty win. I guess. Yeah. Exactly. All right yesterday. We had a really interesting Bleacher tweet that was sent in actually lead Josh to a Twitter pole. Yes. It did esoteric..

And so I heard this big burly voice sitting behind me. And I I it's silly recognizable. I haven't covered the team in a couple of years. So I turned around and he Bruce Bochy hits me on the shoulder says. And we proceeded to have a very nice conversation. And so it sounds simple. Right. But in baseball that that that kind of relationship is pretty rare now between writers and managers like him. And here's a guy who's had. The greatest success manager could ever have. And and and he still remembers someone who who. A couple of years and wondering why wasn't covering baseball. You got to me as a sign of the over and above everything else. We can say that at as hard as I really. Person. And so that makes his success all the more celebrated in announcing today at the beginning of spring training. Darlene makes it easier for the giants the him plan now without even recrimination. But that is going to get the affection and respected accolades that he deserves all season long because he certainly deserves it at Sacramento bee columnist, Marcos Brittan, and it is six Forty-six.
