"In tonight in the recall election as Republicans are trying to kick him out of office, ABC s Alex Stone says the polls have changed in recent weeks as one GOP contender has gained attention a month or so ago, Polls showed Gavin Newsom was in danger of being recalled. But now the polls if accurate show he has a substantial double digit lead, and it's unlikely. He'll be recalled. The change might have been the leading Republican candidate. Democrats outnumber Republicans in California, 2 to 1 and Larry Elder has policies ago totally against Democrat ideals. So for Democrats who might want change, elder would be a big change much more in line with former President Trump as elders. Stardom rose in this state among Republicans, Newsom's likelihood of being recalled declined in the polls. Alex Stone kgo 8 10, tiny Sierra County has the largest voter turnout so far in the recall election. ABC seven reports. The county that distributed just more than 2000 ballots has a 56% return rate.

They beat the Padres 91 last night to become the first major league team to clinch a postseason berth. The achievement comes and manager Gabe Kapler's second here really happy for our players, and they've done just as such a nice job of sticking together and staying even I think tonight is a good opportunity to celebrate and smile a little bit. The Giants have the best record in baseball at 94 50 with 18 games remaining..

"Wrap Part two. We're going to pick some players of the game. Sean, you want to lead us off? Well, I'm going to go with a guy. Nobody really is gonna is wanted to go with her thought about today. And that's warmer. Flores, the insider pick, huh? Yep. Yep. Inside. I got some. I got some tips on Wilmer. Um, He had a pretty good game today. So I'm going with him coming off the ill not playing in nine days, and, uh First That about of the game drives in the first run of the game, and then Scores the third run of the game in his second at bat, or in a set in the fourth inning with a knock and then Uh, hits a home run. First 18th home run of the year, and it ties a career high for him. So probably beat that number. And then he walks in his last about so not only that, obviously the great game at the plate with three R B I, but then he played first base, and he He had a rough day at first base. I mean, he played well, but I mean, he had some tough plays. You had to scoop a couple balls. He had to make a player. He came up off the bag yet to make a quick tag on sh Wendell. I believe it was in the first inning. Um At some point in this game. I don't remember when it was. I felt like he never got a clean throw at first base and then He had to make pretty too pretty tough place to end the game. You know, he had to make the play on swindle ready to jump and make a nice throat, Um to McGee and then the last at bat of the game, and that's not an easy play. I mean off the bat, a half right hander hitting the ball hard to first base has different spin to it. We couldn't see that. But Floors makes it look easy over there first, so great game offensively great game defensively, get a righty back in the lineup. I mean to writings back today where they're a little short right handed bats. Uh, perfect time for one floor is to have a good game. Wilmer Flores. My friend. Totally ready to go, Your friend. Everybody's friend couldn't want it. They couldn't have done it without even even that walk. Because he had a couple of strikes and he fouled awesome and he refused to go out of the strike zone. He did not chase a single pitch and ball four was a wild pitch. And that wild pitch brought in what proved to be the winning run. Wilmer was trying to knock it in. And they ended up walking in but on a wild pitch, but And that while pitch doesn't happen if he chased any one of those pitches out of the zone, or if he just couldn't foul off one of those tough pitches, so it's just pretty good day all the way around for Wilmer Flores. He was a star in this game time. Inside pick from Shawn Estes Digging deep Yeah. Thanks for giving me the layup. The first pick. Yeah. John, you want to pick a guy? Okay, Dave. Well, I'm going Tyler Rogers. Because, man, he, uh, I guess you know, I guess Sean doesn't like to pick pictures. But, uh, I think this was my not my first non pitcher pick of the road trip, so Well, I mean, he came on the scene on two pitches. The score went from 63 to 65. He comes on with the runner at first in the top of the order coming up. And and then after he gets the first guy or take it, sh Wendell gets a base hit and happy. It's another one of those bloops. They had a couple of loops in the inning, and now the bases were loaded. With only one out of their cleanup hitter. The veteran Contreras is coming up. Struck him out. And then Reeve us the left handed batter who had already had to walk in and hit in the game. He was seeing the ball well. And struck him out as well. So, uh, That was as tight as it can get The game needed saving right there and and he got it done big time leaving those bases loaded. You know, Gabe Kapler always told us One thing about Tyler Rogers because he I mean, he was a strikeout pitcher today, but because usually he's not. The ball is going to be put in play. And when you when that's your style, you're going to give up some hits. You are Groundballs. Find a whole bloops fall in whatever. He's just so accustomed to pitching with traffic out there with chaos behind him, and he just doesn't really get flustered by it. So That's a pretty good quality to have. I would say I got flustered me too. Yeah. All flustered. Another Bluepi was whining all all in it And that the Count 123 and two to re revise took one. That was what Uh, an eighth of an inch off the corner and took that. I mean, he's not. He was not being good The empire. Barrett was not given the pictures at the knees. That was not. I mean, he kept taking those close pitches with two strikes. With impunity. And then finally he struck him out on the ball. It was several inches off the inside. So, uh, I guess it just looked pretty fat to Rebus at that 0.83 miles an hour, so we're glad it did. Yeah, Good. Big could still be here if he didn't swing at that big time performance for Tyler Rogers. Okay, my turn. I mean, there are there are lots of other choices for the Giants Sauce, and Slater came back just like Flores. I kind of wanted to hear part of the song, but I'm not picking Austin. You said Slater so you could hear this. Did you want to hear a little bit of it? USC fans had to hear a lot of it. Last night. Stanford, Davis scored 42 on USC down.

"Injury. How bad is it? I read that it's a bad one, and he may not come back the remainder of the regular season. What That impact is. Availability can play offs. And what are you hearing about? Donovan Solano? Is he going to be able to get back out there and play maybe when they go to regularly over the weekend? Well, you know, the giants of the two hamstring strains right now with floors and Dickerson. My impression is that floors is more significant. The Dickerson's, but he is working out, according to Gabe Kapler, he said Solano, Dickerson and Flores are all working out in San Francisco, so I'm not sure I'd be ready to guess that he's out the rest of the way. I would certainly think even if he's limited, maybe you know in in the last week or two that in a playoff situation, he would probably be ready. Hamstrings are tough. You guys know they, you know they're pretty susceptible to three injury. You have to be really careful. And Dickerson certainly sounds like maybe he's a little bit of a head. Solano is just needs to work out a little bit. He's feeling good. He popped into the dugout actually on Sunday, and everybody was apparently like really delighted to see him. It had been a while. Um, so Kapler's sort of sort of cautiously optimistic he might be joining them in Chicago, but, yeah, you're right. This does add a what happens. You know in your You know, you got lost. L A. He's he's available. Now. You've got Solano coming back and Tiro. Estrada has been kind of outperforming everybody. So, Yeah. Good problem to have. I mean, that's what they always say. But some point even with the two extra guys in September, you wind up with a little bit of a roster clinch, and this is a team that can definitely use the extra reliever at this point. Given the you know the fact that they're in a situation with right now they don't have to members of their rotation. Cueto Potentially about the rest of the way. We really don't know what's going on with Alex would except for every time we ask, we're told he's very sick. So who knows? Who knows how long he'll be out? You know, even the two extra guys, I don't I really, really wish that they had found some sort of compromise between essentially unlimited September. Call up stand to He has to, especially in the season following a pandemic when there are so many injuries, and so many guys, you know on covid lists, they really needed more. Okay, so let's go back to this whole opener thing. So the school funding pitch well on Friday night, Gaza's bitch. Well, yesterday Logan Web has been one of the best pitchers in all baseball. That's it. Those? Are you three going on right now. So so what do they do? As far as do they just continue to do openers or relief pitcher games? How do they handle this? Moving forward? Well, Scott Kazmir was mentioned yesterday. I've talked to Scott a couple of times since he's been back from the Olympics. His last time out was really good. He's starting for Sacramento tonight, Catholics said. He's starting to be a pretty viable option. He throws a lot of strikes. Which again here. That's important when you're talking about a bullpen game, and he said Scott might even wind up as a book an option for them. So maybe they're thinking, you know, either, like, start and go a few innings or be part of a bullpen game. I don't know, but that is a big plus because he is a major strike or doesn't throw hard anymore, But he has a smart guy knows what he's doing. You know, his season altogether has been Extraordinary coming back from a very long kind of semi retirement. Getting a silver medal in the Olympics. You know, making some starts with the Giants, and here, it could be pitching. You know, in the stretch run for the Giants, and potentially even the playoffs scenario, depending on what's going on with the rotation and the Giants needs, so I love that idea. You know, he's one of my exam. We're not supposed to root, but he is one of my favorite guys, and it's such a good story. It's really hard not to to kind of hope that maybe he does have something here to say. But I do suspect that he's At the very least, an option there entertaining. So keep an eye on what he does with Sacramento tonight, because if it's good, we might see him here is next time out. Yeah, maybe go Sunday and Wrigley when they wind up the weekend there, Um, speaking of Wrigley, as Kris Bryant could be healthy. What's going on I saw was a wrist injury and early in the game, Brendan Rodgers hit that ball between Uh, you know, in the gap in right center, he dove and landed and when he got up, he got up slowly. Was it on that play and what's going on with Chris Bryant right now at the wrist? Cutler says. It's minor said it's something that's actually been. He's had some discomfort here for a few games. I think it's something you know, but related to his swing. Uh, so I wouldn't be surprised if maybe he gets a start off for a little extra rest. Like you know, Yesterday, it was more get a little bit of pattern getting out of the game. But, yeah, you know, he Makes the throw. That certainly was not, um you know the norm for him the error? Uh, I think he's okay. I'm not sure that there's like massive alarm bells. But like everybody he's banged up in the you know, a wrist injury for a hitter of his caliber is not ideal. So we're I the Giants. Certainly I would err on the side of caution, and they usually do. Susan. Great stuff. As always. We appreciate it. We'll talk to you next week. Awesome. Thanks. Thank you. Shirley. Susan Celester, generous from the Chronicle graduate glad she's OK and gives us some great information will hit a few of those things.

"To give you a real quick giants, notes Alex Dickerson and Darren Rough or off the aisle. That's good news. The Giants are obviously swinging the bat well after six and one home, staying with which where they hit 16 home runs. And added batting average collectively of 3 33. Hey, man, more sticks to the party. I'm sure those guys can't wait to come up here and eat. Here are the corresponding moves Jason Vossler, who was played a more than capable third base in the absence of Yemen. Longoria, Jason Vossler, optioned out and Lamont way, Junior who really did nothing to warrant just to kind of, uh, a punitive demotion if you will, but it definitely seems like a numbers game And I know a lot of people going away. Mike talk hman well, His defense is spectacular, not the wage defenses. Is this substandard by any stretch of the imagination, But You know, Search your heart, You know to be true Talk. Meanwhile, the actual putting the ball out there and and and getting hits that's been in short supply. Mike Hawkman does take very good at bats. He makes pictures work, and we know that is the part of the Giants. Hitting ethos if you will, And when we had the chance to talk to Gabe Kapler last Friday, he mentioned just that. That, uh, that talk Ben JBs. He's working guys. He's working pictures. He's grinding. And that fits into what the Giants want their hitters to do. So Lamont waiting Jason Vossler going down if you will Dickerson and rough coming up Giants back in action tomorrow for two against the Angels Chris Mullin joining us next our weekly conversation with the sharpshooting left hander. What he must think when he sees Ben Simmons absolutely refused to shoot. We'll find out when we talked to Chris Mullin.

"You know, guys defense. You look at what has happened, Uh, it more than most remarkable things about this Giants team is the defense. They weren't a good defense Last year. They were a good defensive last three years. I mean, they had good defensive players. I mean, you know, he had Longoria and you had Crawford and you had belt You had Posey. But Too often, you know, they made mistakes They made through the wrong base or didn't didn't didn't do a cut off or for whatever reason, Every one of those guys got better. Posey, you know, they introduced the the style of catching on one knee, and, uh, And he's doing He doesn't do it all the time, but he does it. Now he's frame with a lower pitch, but probably better than he ever has. And you take a look at the footwork with belt and they've made him a better thrower in Longoria, Here's a guy his 14th year. And he's brought into the cake, career drills and and ways to make your hands quicker and ways to make them in sync more with your lower body and give you a better reception when you're reaching out to the ball instead of stiff arm of the ball when you're going to your backhand, you know you're not crossing over with your left leg. You know you're bending your right leg leg and you're and you're able to receive that ball to your backhand, which comes up high with a bend elbow and it gives you soft hands. They're all doing things like that. And this is just remarkable how they've made even Established great defensive players better and because I gotta tell you, I didn't by end of the 13 coach. I thought that was Bs. I thought, Wait a second. You're letting all these coaches with big league experience. Walk out the door. What is going on here? Now I am an advocate. I am what I see on a daily basis What this coaching staff has done what Gabe Kapler is done. I am on board for that very recent. They've given this team confidence and every aspect of their game. Yeah, and they've done it with guys who have been established and I think that That needs to be applauded and pointed out more often. What you just said, is pretty darn important and will said Mike, I was just like you and, uh and and man o men they have earned. Everybody's respect the way this is gone. It's really, really pretty amazing stuff. So fun stuff they go this weekend at at Washington. Everybody right. Today's game regularly scheduled four or five DeSclafani Scherzer, tomorrow's Double header seven innings will be at 11 in the morning and at four in the morning for in the afternoon before they do their thing. Just a little bit on the Nats 2019 World Series champs 2020 comes around. They get the pandemic here, and they're not. It's not happening for them. This year. We had Bob Carpenter on yesterday. There play by play guy and it's just, he says. They can't hit and and Pat Corbyn is not performing. So it just goes to show you right. I mean, Remember how great it was to win that First World Series in 2010, the Giants back it up with another one in 2012. The Nets don't seem to be on that path, so they're probably feeling a little frustration, although on soda remains a An absolute Dynamo. Well, they're dangerous. And the thing about every team in the National League East is they all had high expectations coming into season, every team and and you know, the Mets are on top of the of the division. Right now, I feel the only team with above 500 record and there's six games over, but every team still thinks they're in it. That includes the Nationals. And look, I don't care if the nationals were 30 games under 500. They get Max Cher's are on the hill. And that makes them one of the best teams in baseball. Every time he takes the rubber, so you cannot take this Washington team lightly. You have to do what you always done. You've gotta grind. Make plays. Get the big hit, you know, set up an ending with walks. Get pitches out of the starter. Just basically what they've done. It's going to be it. It's going to be a tough series. And but I do think that to a degree, their team that gets helped By the seven inning doubleheaders just because of how good they're they're starting staff has been and which means they'll the starting staff, in theory would throw more innings in the bullpen would have to throw less. So, um, you know if you're looking for a slight edge, I think that's one. But I do believe he's gonna be a tough series. Yeah, for sure, and also want to mention we talked to a carpenter by Max Scherzer. And, uh and the cops is pointing out. There's rumors out there on the you know, Well, the Nats with a bad year dump assures her and Carpenter was talking about him like like he was Tim Lincecum and Madison Bumgarner and Matt Cain rolled into one. He's like, Oh, my God! Don't touch my Max Shires or he's our deity. He is our God and As an old right hander. You must love was sure to bring to the table can imagine the Nets trade him what he means. It's funny because you know he didn't come up as a gnat or anything, but he's like there. He's their guy. Strasburg was the M V P, but sure, there's the It means so much to that team. Oh, he's a true anchor. I mean, he's a true ace and a true anchor. No matter how bad your teams playing when you go out there, just what I just said. I mean, you feel like you're not going to have a chance to win. You think like you're going to win that you're supposed to win that you're one of the best teams in baseball because he's out there. You know, so I He's a guy that everybody wants. I mean, who doesn't want Max Scherzer and know that he's a good guy and your guy in the clubhouse. He's a good guy in the community. I mean, he's the real deal. Um, so you know, you got your hands full. Yeah, Here's the opportunity. You know, Disco funny right now, after the Anthony de Stefani right now is making that transition we watched happened with Kevin Gausman. And what has happened with disco. Funny is, you know he's got the new toy, which is the two seam fastball from high three quarter release. That's such a great pitch, and he's learning how to pitch within on both sides of the plate. So you know it's it's transition time for him in his in his career, when you get to that point where you've got weapons that you never had before, and now you have the ability to use these weapons. You want to take on a Max Scherzer. You want to take on a Strasbourg. You want to take every badass in the league on and you want to.

"Twist, bouncer hit the first couple hops right to wait. Who's going to Sprint to the bag for the put out that retires the side and Giants fans ago? Stand up for Cueto's really pitch Well today. After kind of a shaky start. That could be it for him. Seven strong for Johnny Cueto here on Memorial Day Monday and, Yeah, Johnny, Walking off the field slowly wave to this nice Giants crowd. Cool moment for kwaito. Indeed, itwas Johnny Cueto's seven strong innings. One run five hits, allowed five strikeouts, No walks. He did hit the one batter two different times, and that was it. So Johnny Cueto with his fourth win of the year. He is the player we give credit to for their stellar performance. It's Johnny Cueto sponsored by Geico, a proud partner of Major League Baseball. Giants would get their final two runs in the seventh, and this had some significance in terms of allowing Gabe Kapler to bypass using his top late inning arms and keeping them fresh for Perhaps coming into hold on to a game late tomorrow. We'll see how that plays out. But Tyler Rogers was warming up during the seventh inning, getting ready to come on in the eighth inning. But in the Seven. Donovan Solano lead off the inning with a walk against the former giant hunter Strickland and then Duggar hit that. Shot out toward the deep part of the yard Right center field. It bounced up just to the right of the 4 15 marker and up off the bricks and then cleared the wall. Over the 4 15 marker for the automatic double. I think easily would have scored Solano from first base. Had it stayed on the field, and in addition, I think easily would have been a triple for the speedy Duggar. So he kind of got robbed of his R B. I. And who knows If that bonus stayed in the field and taking a funny bounce, you might have even been able to sprint all the way around the basis for an inside the park home run. We'll never know as it was a double putting runners at 2nd and 3rd, then talk when the pinch hitters struck out. And with Wade coming up fresh off his home run. The Pitching changes made strictly was taken out of the game and key Hatta left hander just brought up for the minor leagues today by the Angels came in. So the Giants countered that move with Wilmer Flores and while Wilmer was up The Giants. We get two more runs. One of them scored on this play. Leo to pitch is off.

We're gonna pick some players of the game. Just a couple Quick update Gausman, according to Gabe Kapler, Dealing with hip issue the past few weeks, felt it on the base hit and when he came off the mound to make that play at the end of the six so Again. I think the Giants being extra careful with Gausman. One other thing, the D. C wrote down his Kershaw just talked to the writers after his start, and this was interesting. Kershaw. Somehow it came up. Talking about Buster Posey, playing better maybe than he ever has just a sort of an overall. General. Basta obviously went in there today, but so cursed are trying to change the subject. I think he wanted to just talk about something else. What happened? How did you feel today? Buster's playing great. He's unbelievable. Oh, my goodness. Can you believe that guy's going rats a veteran? Move right there. Yeah, He's no dummy. Lot of respect that those guys have for each other, though. Radio Yep. John, it's your turn to pick first today is all right, Dave. Thank you so much, And but I'm gonna go into the seventh inning. The Giants, things started to Just sort of subtly drift the wrong way. Gausman had to leave the game after only 72 pitches when when he was just money. And then the judge had the bases loaded. Nobody out in the seventh and the middle there order coming up, and they did not add on it didn't score. And then so hardly. Garcia came in has been so good, but he couldn't find the strike zone. He walks Ballenger, the lefty to start off the NFL behind Lux. After that, and And Giants fans. I'm sure started for a little bit anxious, You know, not not. We broadcasters hours, but you know what happened And then he got through. He got lex in a pop up and rolled through portholes and makin Street. And I thought that that was a steadying thing and considering what happened in the next couple of innings Essential in this Giants one run ultimate one run victory. So I'm gonna just put the spotlight on Harley Garcia little bit there. It'll be my guy. Good. Pick out a bit. Yep, Very good. Okay, my turn. I'm taking the guy who started off the game with a base at Austin Slater..

You know, you have two ways to approach in it bad and you know, it's take your pick. Ideally, the club would like to see each guy go up there and get five plus pitches and never get that run The pitch. Count out and get started out. The game is still standing. That's what they'd like to see. But the reality of the situation is a lot of these guys going through thinking, man. I don't not want to get into a two strike situation against this guy, so I'm going to swim in the first direct it comes So there's there's the dilemma. Yes. Should I stay in that box and woodwork pitches or should I try and jump on the first thing I see. And, uh, You know, you just hope for Miss takes you hope for something. It's in a good location that you can hit. You hope that he kind of beats himself a little bit by by walking a couple of setting up a rally for free and then getting the big hit. Well, you have good players. Pictures like that. I mean, that's that's how you beat him. You beat him with an heir or a blue por Ah, walk and then a minute big hit. That's kind of how you have to do it. But that's kind of how the league has been doing it against. Giants pitching as well. I mean, that's the thing that British stood out in this particular three game serious and the only time they really had a chance. Um, there were a starter matched up with with Alex would going against power on Friday night. And, you know, look again. Keczmer did great, but I do think that there was a little bit of deflation in the clubhouse. Because they didn't have web in that start and they were gonna face Bueller. You know, nobody would ever say anything like that. But I do think there is a feeling when you you don't have your number One guy going against, you know a number one ace. Like like bueller, Huh? I I do think that has an effect on it, but I mean, that's just the way it's gonna be in this way. It's gonna be with the Padres all the way down the road. This could be one run game. Just gonna be close games. It's gonna be good baseball. I just think that Sunday game was just kind of, you know, baseball just kind of having fun with Anthony DeSclafani who's been so good, I mean, You know? Yes, I think that's the worst starting his career. I don't think you'll see another when anything close to that I know he's chomping at the bit to get back out there in exploiting Dodger Stadium. So I do think it will be a different story, then. The A Z you mentioned. You know, the on field stuff was one thing. The off field stuff. I should say the peripheral stuff was another thing. You know, you went viral Friday night. Ah lot of Giants fans, including me and my buddies were at the game. Having fun with Trevor Bauer. He I haven't seen a Dodger. I mean, tweet comes to mind You talked about in the postgame wrap on this another way home, But I even think Bauer was even I don't know more demonstrative than Puig in some ways. It reminded me a little bit of the sword of Mike a Zoe said here Monday morning. How do you evaluate the Bower antics? And also, how does it play in the giant clubhouse and dugout? I'm another pros. They're all they're all you know. They're pro baseball players. They're getting paid to win a game in some of that stuff is extraneous. But does any of it chap the Giants and what's your evaluation a couple days later? Well, first of all, it's noticed. He's talked about. And is remembered. That's what's going on the clubhouse right now. No, they're not talking openly publicly in front of a microphone. Don't think for one second, that wasn't seen and and I think that Bauer's a gift to this rivalry. I do right because he is a great bad guy, and we ain't seen nothing yet from what this guy's going to do. Oh, she's So guess what? Go out there beat us, But, yes, I mean, you know, you know, you know the thing about Bauer. You do that You're gonna get focused from 26 guys. It's going to be intense. He goes. I don't know if he's gonna go. I think I know what he's gonna pitch. Thursday. I don't know. I don't. I don't know what his next artist he might not pitch against the Giants in this upcoming four game, which is a shame, because I really want to see the next time around because he has their attention. And I think that's interesting. He has the attention of the fan base. Let's get to talk about right now. But I mean, here's a guy that everybody has sort of paid attention when he was with the D backs and then Cleveland and Cincinnati. But But now, now that he's got a Dodger Union, and he's pulling that stuff, it's adding fuel the fire I did. It's a gift. I agree. I mean way had a lot of fun with him, and he made it juicy. And maybe by the time he threw that ball away Friday night, we were just all over him. And I was 2 to 1 Ball game. Try to go get it. But man, he made pitches when he had to. My God. When that happened, I looked in the stands and everybody was sitting there holding your balls. Gallons. There's hardly good. It was unbelievable. You might see you can't have your boo than that. Oh, yeah, It was You guys. I know. I'm sure you heard John's calling that thing, John. He was right there. Hold them, too. I mean, it was deep. Yeah, it was really fun. And I have to say I agree with you. He was great. Now. It's funny. He didn't He did Cup this year. Jared Weaver, former Big league pitcher tweeted out Wait six and a 3rd 126 pitches in your cup in your ear. You do you bud with the laughing crying emoji, So I mean, that's the next big league pitcher. Sort of like you, Mike like talking and I got a little bit at him. Yes. Yeah. You know, he is what he is, and he ain't changing. I mean, it's Hey, you feeds on it. And And again like I say, I just think that in the grand scheme of things when you start looking at I had a focal points on that Dodger team over the year. Were they absorb? They absorb all the hatred? Giants fan base? You know, he's right up there. I mean, he just elevated. You climb the ladder in one serious and one start. He climbed the ladder. He is now the guy. In fact, that was a Friday night added to the juice of it all. He was really, really good. Just a little bit on the Dodgers. Mike. If the Giants are going to chase these guys down, you know, like I said, they did it without That's Seeger and Dillinger. And then Mookie Best didn't even play Saturday and Sunday. If there weren't guys like Sheldon noise and DJ Peters and, you know, I mean, it was just like, what the heck's going on out here? What did you think that Dodger team that line up the way they attacked, etcetera. Well, the big league hitters and you know when you get good pitching, um then you go into a game as an offense taken. You don't have to score a lot to win a game. That's an that's an advantage. I think that frees up in offense. But you know they work counts. They had good to strike it bats. I mean, they put the ball in play. I mean, they did a lot of good things. You know, So I I I don't think you ever and and plus again. It's a rivalry game that elevates a knave Bridge player into an above average player. Just because the focus in the adrenaline this is intense. And that is the beauty of the rivalry. That's you know, I look, I I've seen a lot of teams. Lot of Dodge teams that didn't didn't match up to Giants team. A lot of Giants teens did match up to the Dodger teams over the years. It never felt like that once they played each other, but I always felt like it was a playoff game, and it was. It was even adrenaline and those type of games elevate Big League players. So you know nothing that they did with a bad surprise Me. You know, it is the biggest thing time for Gabe Kapler in the coaching staff to to see how they bounce back from this and what any adjustments they may make or may not make going into Dodger Stadium like you said they have to against Arizona..

"Six and 6 to 3 Thescore of last night's game Logan Web Takes up the W there. 25 men 16. They're in first place in the NL West with a huge Dodger serious. Get ready to get going on Friday night, and Oracle Park should be a really, really fun weekend. They get that Saturday evening, late afternoon game to the four o'clock start on Saturday. Dodgers got the win yesterday. 3 to 1. I was hoping our old buddy Madison Bumgarner was gonna help us out a bit. Was a little bit erratic in the ideas. It was the first game for Albert Pool halls as a Dodger. You went one for four within our beyond Whatever. Just give me the exactly pulls. By the way. Did you hear these reports that That part of the reason the Angels released him was, he said he wanted to play every day. They don't report came out yesterday. He was like I never said that. I never told the angels that looks like It's It's sort of weird pageant forward for a guy who was there for so long for the Angels to potentially have made something like that up seems seems unrealistic to me. I don't know why you need to make something up like that. We could look at his numbers and see why it was that you. You let him go if we're gonna pay him. 40/40 years old. It's been 41 years old. So anyway, I'm Madison. Bumgarner in that outing yesterday for the Diamondbacks against the Dodgers didn't leave with a A doctor. Strange guess is like a groin injury inside of your grown so Bumgarner leaves the game did the four innings, two hits, two runs, five strikeouts for walks in that game, But Walker Bueller was nails for the Dodgers yesterday, seven innings, one hit allowed to the Diamondbacks. He struck out seven in a 31 victory. Also, the Padre shut out the Rockies yesterday. Seven. Nothing behind Yu Darvish is Four hits allowed 10 stretch outs, No walks in seven innings. So these are the teams. This is the teams that are built to play 1 62. Well, the Dodgers we know are built to play 1 62. The Padres played 60 and then puff their chest out and thought they were. They were world champs. I don't need to hear from the Padres fans. That's all I'm saying. Let's get back into some of these giant stuff here. The wind yesterday Logan Web Gabe Kapler said he would like him to have him come out for the seventh inning on Bob Lee would have brought him out for the seventh. Just based on how many games we're playing in a row here, how you don't have a whole lot of trust and right handed arms out of your benefit game would have liked to go toe Tonto Logan Web here and then maybe have gone. Tonto, Caleb Barrenger, maybe Harlan Garcia just to finish off the game. Let him go out there for the eighth and said one more guy out for the ninth and close this thing out, but Logan Webb was having some shoulder soreness. Here's Gabe Kapler after the game, saying doesn't think it's too serious. We're gonna keep it on. On it, But there's a reason he wasn't out there in the seventh. He was having some shoulder soreness. So so I spoke to him with our trainers, and we thought it was best to get him out of there and get him treated so well. We'll keep evaluating him, but that that's why we took him out again. Okay, So what's the next step here? Gaby going toe. Memorize it. Is it something serious like that? Or is it just some normal wear and tear? We're going to see how he feels tomorrow. I don't. I don't feel like it's it's anything serious at this point. Obviously, things can change. But it's something that was enough for me to say that I didn't want him to go back out there and put himself at risk. Check him out tomorrow and see how he's doing. So you have a big lead in the game, right? You feel pretty confident of that. And you know it. Z You just as young hey, hasn't pitched a full season. You got to remember that some of these guys who they're still getting ramped up for a full major league season. We saw him a couple of years ago, right? We saw a boat to use them. We saw him last year pitch at times pretty decently and came out of the bullpen at times. But really, this is a guy who I think they believe can be a middle of the rotation. Maybe in the future of Frontline rotation guy. He seems like he's been locating a whole lot better. We heard tons about the change up early in the season and how great he threw that pitch and spring training, and then he got into the sea. Season. It was just getting knocked around a little bit. Wasn't finishing pitches was not getting swings and misses that they were looking for, and then he had a 10 strikeout came out of that game last week against the Rangers, and he talked about pitching with more pace right the way Alex would pitches and Buster Posey a huge part about that, where the second you throw a pinch, you turn around and you get the ball back and he stepped back upon the rubber. You get ready to go again. Put the pressure on the hitter. Don't let him feel like he's got any time up there. They get a little and see they get jumpy. You could attack the zone You can you can pound the hands in and he can go soft away, especially to let Here's what you're gonna see. A lot of is a right hander. With that changeup so more from Logan Web here, they asked him about the injury. How you feeling, Logan?.

"About Chad Zerby like the way I believe they would youse guys is, you know, he's from a different generation of managerial mindset, Right? Like he was a guy who was like, Hey, if we have a hot and we have a guy who fits in this role, and I have a guy who can get me from the fifth to the eighth wonder of the Jim Brower come out there and throw three innings five times a week. Like on occasion, it felt like that would happen. And I think It was the year where you had a pitched upwards of 80 games or something. And Tyler Rogers right now, I think it's on a pace where you're gonna be close to 100, so I know that you can keep using it. But I actually do believe that if you were to move him into the closer role, you would throw him less frequently or Maurin frequently than you're using them right now, because he's the best arm. He's the Swiss Army knife, but the Giants have and so Gabe Kapler has to rely on him because he doesn't really have Many other right handers he can trust. He's not going toe Tonto. Matt Wisler. Sam Selman from the left side is not proving he can get out. So we talked about you know, identifying with the biggest problem is with right handed pitching out of the bullpen for the Giants and Tyler Rogers is the most consistent the most reliable the swinging this guy. Get your ground out. He can get you a strikeout. You can come in with guys on base. You can come in with a clean inning. He could do just about everything that's asked of him. So I don't blame Dave Chappelle for wanting to keep going to him. But you're right. It doesn't have that sort of belief. A allude Enbrau a vibe and we were talking the other name or from back and I about about Chad Bradford Susan's cluster of the Chronicle on how many times the A's used to use him, But I think there was a season where they used him like 68 times, which I guess is a little bit high, but not abnormal for reliever. But then he goes over to the Baltimore one here in the Orioles you some 78 times in a season, which is more Jim Brower like so Don't know for sniff 100 appearances with Tyler Rogers, but I think those appearances go down. If he's in the closer spot. I want to throw it off the Giants fans extra innings, the postgame show I interviewed National League umpire Ed Montague. We talk about balls and strikes. Replay talk about injuries. We talk about Joe West. So please tune into extra innings tonight after the game, but I want to stay with the umpires. And Mark Rip Inger yesterday just got to heat to their own at him by the Pirates manager gets tossed Strike zone was open. It was really tight. He was inconsistent, and I think that's what the players and managers want more of a consistency behind the plate. Hopes you saw the game. What did you think of that? Yeah, I mean, If you're noticing the Empire's felt like that, in any game, or any leads, or any sports, you never seeing the empires of the officials. It's not a great thing. Baseball is, I feel like they were noticing it, maybe more now than ever because of instant replay in because of the The They've changed the number of things you can argue, right? Like if you come out to argue balls and strikes that you're gonna get tossed pretty instantly. That's what we saw last night like you start chewing out an umpire for something he's like now, man. You can't argue that this is something that we're supposed to debate. The same thing can happen on an instant replay for Guy comes up to argue after instant replay review Your generally toss pretty quickly. They don't give you a long rope on that, because The thought is that we got right because we went to replace. So I think there's something lost in the game without having those those. You know we don't We don't need Lupin l out here throwing first space there or anything like that. But I think there's something fun about another fire. Sort of getting into it with a manager or Ah, head coach. Bill did you ever to out and umpire Did you ever get into it with with Ed Montague? Did he let you have it on the mountain? And it was really good. It was Bruce from Ng. He was the one that I used to always argue balls and strikes with it. And Terry Tate. It cost me a couple of times. He find me pretty much. They didn't toss me Find me for drilling and events like I had seen, like Andy Van Slyke and I I drill them four times. So at the end sooner later, they thought I was this head hunting for him. But he had a big mouth on him. So I just drilled him in the leg and the back and moved on. But no. You know umpires really communicated just on balls and strikes. Lee Wire was awesome. He was one of the best. And you could go right down the line. Oh of with a few of them, but no, you Noah's long as they communicate with you and you don't show him up and you don't have that catcher's head turning and they have communication. You get to know a little bit about him and you get to know their strike zone. So It's difficult now because of the box and I think that box needs to be removed because the strike zone isn't the same box at every hitter. You sort of cracked actually agree with you that fucking it's off line two. It's a different to different angle and lying to the plate that we're seeing from the center field camera depending on the stadium. You remember you just cracked me up there, Bill. You said Yeah. And Andy van place four times He had a big mouth and for some reason, they thought I was doing it on purpose. You caught me their CO c. You are awake this lorry doing a great job of defending yourself there, boy. He might have been right to run you. You know, those were much. Oh, that reminds me comes. Who's the guy who had it out for Omar Vizquel, who hit him every single time He saw him. Was it was it Jose Lima. There was some guy who we always would, you know? Oh, 607 there. I want a boy. He was on the Indians of a maid. For there You go. Good knowledge there, wrap it So they make up on. I believe I believe what happened was this is this is pretty cold. I think what happened with something basic off the World Series for the Indians in 1994 90 95 96. Somewhere in there might have been 97 might have been the Marlins here anyway. Oh, market Still afterwards, I think you wrote a book or he'd done an interview or something. And he said that when he looked into his into his eyes on the pitcher's mound, he knew that he didn't have it. So who's the maid forgot all upset with Omar has said every time I faced that I'm going to drill him, and if he charges the mound, I'm going to kill him, and I was a boy. That's pretty intense stuff, man. But you want to send you look into a man's eyes on the pitcher's mound, and you knew he didn't have it after he lost the World Series. I thought that was that was a little telling. I thought of what was going on in that clubhouse. That's great stuff comes arrives with the game. We play on our podcast Walk one, hit one and pitched the one That's always It's always my favorite. We should bring Omar Vizquel into that conversation. But thanks so much for joining us this morning and go back to bed. All right. Guys like breakfast in bed. That's what you need to do. Breakfast event. Great stuff. We love having him Adam Copeland. You can hear him every weekday morning on the leadoff spot. Five.

"On your home of the orange and black KNBR, 1045 and 68, these sports leader. Giants baseball on the radio. After getting rained out last night, the Giants and Rockies will play a double header to seven innings. Official games. I'm John Miller with Gabe Kapler, the Giants manager and the cap first off the Giants with a double header. Add a roster player teams can add a 27th player to the roster. Who have the Giants decided to add. We've added Connor Menezes are 27 John. We did that. Because, as you know, of course, feel can be a little bit tricky. And every once in a while, you get a short start. By one of your starters, and you have to cover a bunch of endings with your bullpen, given the fact that we have a double header and that we're gonna have to cover at least 14, maybe more on given the fact that sometimes things can get a little sideways here in Colorado, we felt like some length of a picture that could cover some innings for us. Made a lot of sense and Carmen eyes is stretched out. And you can. You can go three plus for us, and it's just really nice to have that luxury. All right, So now you have Mike talk Hman in the leadoff spot in the lineup. How did what was your thinking in terms of putting him there? Well, I don't want to discount the gap or the the void that losing Tommy lost Ella. Creates right way had a bona fide leadoff hitter, a guy who walked up to the plate and kind of depend on 45 pitches, probably not leadoff spot. Not every time, but It just felt like a pretty good bet, And he was going to see what the picture had been foul. Awesome pitches, maybe work, walk and get on base in front of guys like Belgium, Posey and Dickerson and And Longoria so way wanted to try to replace that might talk Man doesn't really nice job of seeing pitches. He always has Hagen also and those that bath with a little bit of thunder, but we saw in San Diego with that three run home run. We kind of considered both belt and talking for that that spot. I just like talking it up there at the top and see what it looks like today. No, you mentioned Lost Ella and he's been placed on the injured list with the hamstring strain. How long is he likely to be out? If this is about 4 to 6 week injury? That's generally the case with Moderate hamstring strain. Any time you get the soft tissue injuries, it's truck. It's difficult to predict with a lot of certainty and like it's 100% clarity. But that's my guests right now, something that discussed with Dave freshener. That's where we came out. You've got Aaron Sanchez and Alex Wood is your two starters for the doubleheader. You like to go with Sanchez in Game one, and you could have gone either way. What was the thinking in terms of Which one goes in which game? Yeah, I think we have a tendency. Tomov think these things strategically Well, we have to guard good starting pitchers, and Sanchez would both of them have had a lot of early states success. Touch base with Sanchez and Wood. They're both comfortable with sand. She going one and Woody going game to kind of get Sanchez get advantage of knowing exactly what the start time is gonna be. Paired him up with Buster so that Buster could be ready to go for us and have a little bit more recovery. Tomorrow's game and consolidate will catch into with with Alex wouldn't feel like that's a good plan. Giants and Rocky's doubleheader.
MLB Spring training: Which Players Have A Shot At Making the Giants' Team?
"One guy that stands out to me and we'll get to Luciano. We've talked so much about him and how exciting and tantalizing he is. But we're talking bullpen, arms and guys who have a legitimate shot to make this team and one of the parting gifts from Bobby Evans. It seems like one of these guys. Camilo dove all he's been in the system time now did we saw him against the Dodgers the other night? He is exciting, and I think is you put out carry the best hair in the Giants bullpen right now. Oh, yeah, he he does have the best care because last year they had a guy Rodolfo Martinez, who was a Johnny Cueto look like just with better dreadlocks than Johnny Cueto. If you can imagine that this year, they've got Camilo Jovel who does not have better dreadlocks. But he has died his dreadlocks, so they're like orangish Red, And I'm hoping that by the regular season he'll have in his Giants Orange, because could you imagine that coming out of the bullpen? Got weapon 97 98 with a cutter and the breaking off a nasty slider. And then all of a sudden he's got the closer like hair, Camilo Devil and you make a great point. He is a parting gift from Bobby Evans. And this is something that we should talk about. I should write about eventually is all the parting gifts from Bobby Evans because you're starting to see the fruit of the Giants International. Sign me focus coming through the system. Marco Luciano, a Bobby Evans guy, Alexander Canario, Bobby Evans Guy. Curving Castro, a Bobby Evans guy. And so the Giants are starting to see this focus that we saw in the like post 2014 2015 World Series era where they went down to the Dominican Republic, Venezuela and other Latin American countries and sign some dudes and you're seeing that those dudes who they got when they were 16 17 years old are coming through this farm system and are going to be ready to contribute and so The village of all immediately popped out the other night against the Dodgers Cubs, But there's several other players, several other young players. Several other young pitchers who have really stood out so far. Well in another one is from the left side. Jake long this kid is from Sacramento. I think you would the Sac state or he's like up from the Northern California area. So he said. It was so funny. The quote I saw from him the other day was Buster Posey called him over to throw a bullpen and he called him by his name, and he was all stoked that Buster newest name because he's of that age group beauties like you and I. If Buster called us over, he'd be like, dude, that's Buster Posey calling my name so Him from the left side. You know, I hate to do the com thing, but I'm getting I'm getting Billy Wagner Vibes. Dude, What do you think? Billy Wagner vibes? That's that's fascinating. And so the reason I say that is because the jobs are actually building this guy up is a starter there. They're thinking of him a 97 from the left side, a guy with a hammer curveball and a good change up there looking at him as someone who could actually be in the rotation. And so when can't first started? Gabe Kapler traffic trump Buster Posey. They all said. Hey, pay some attention to this Sam Long guy. He's got something to him. And we're thinking, okay, This is just, you know, a guy who threw two good bullpens. You never know that happens every spring. He's probably a double A or maybe a triple a arm who could help them out of the bullpen Eventually. Then all of a sudden, he appears in the Cactus League opener against the Angels, and he has got major league stuff. No question in my mind after seeing him. Three pitches in I turn to Mark Sanchez in the press box. I go. I have seen enough. This guy can help the Giants right now, and I think that in keeping him as a starter and sending him down to triple A or double a to open up the season, you're potentially talking about someone copes who could somehow morphed his way into the Giants top pitching prospect and maybe beat Sean Jelly or Tristen back or some things other guys. The chance to excited about to the major league level. And so it's really fasting to see Sam Long come out of the bullpen because you're juxtaposing that with guys like Camilo, Javelin Caribbean Castro, who is another guy, Bobby Evan, signed who just has that hammer curve coming out of the bullpen 97. Very little mite early experience. But there are the pieces in place and you can correct me if I'm wrong. If you've seen anything differently, the first three or four days of spring training their pieces in place for the Giants to have one of the most exciting bullpens and Major league baseball and potentially one of the best is far as electricity goes like with stuff

"Greg Papa and John Lund continues. You're among your Google home Smart speaker by saying Play K NPR Here's the pitch. Was a swing and there's a drive deep into right field way back there, and it is gone on Mike Trout. Never Enters the picture in the ninth inning. Tommy list, Stella hits a home run over that now. Lower right field wall. And so it has happened again to Trevor God. John Miller on the call. That was August 17th time us. Stella with the walk off when he was of the Angels moves over to the A's, and now he crosses the bridge and he is a member. Of the Giants, and Tommy joins us, courtesy of the My guess line. First of all, Tommy. Thanks for joining us. Welcome. Well, you've already been in the bay, so welcome crossing the bridge over to San Francisco. My first question is so when spring training starts do you go up to Trevor gotten? Go Sorry about that, bro. Or is it just It happens, man, You've got some great stuff, and I'll be honest. All I was trying to do. There was not bouncing. You don't play with Mike on deck so Lucky You got one in the air, but, yeah, he's got a great stuff. Congratulations to you. And welcome to the Bay Area, And we remember that fateful Monday night. Well, when you hit the walk off, and that was a pitch, you know, down a little bit in the strike zone. I do want to start with your your contract and mainly The annual donations you're going to make to the Giants Community Fund. I mean 10,000 his first year 26 250 and 2022 57,500. Right away. And like your contract, it does stair step up. Just tell me about why that was important for you to do right out of the chute, Tommy. Sure. Yeah, well, the team approached me with it. Um, and I knew immediately have something. I want to be a part of it. Maybe I don't have all the details yet is Theo you know where the funds are gonna be going, But I am looking forward to being involved in Um, connecting with the people who are going to be spearheading these efforts and learning more about it. Formula. Stella joining us one of the newest giants, so it must be nice for you, though you did come over in a trade, obviously, from the angels to the AIDS, so I don't know how settled you got, But then all you have to do now is is cross the bridge. How nice is that? Yeah, that's great. I love the area. Um, unfortunately, last year didn't get to see as much of it is I would've hoped, But you know, coming over here over the years being the National League always really enjoyed the area. We'll get an opportunity to explore it a little bit more, but, yeah, I'm really excited about No ace fans were crushed. That whole week is Marcus Semien and just last right around the same time to go play for the Blue Jays, and I think the A's fans were hoping because they enjoyed what you did there and saw you Against them with the Angels in the American League West. Did you have any conversation with with Billy and a force their bars far customers coming back to the ace? Um During the all cities and, you know, I left that just tol my agent, But after the season had ended with spoken briefly, just be a text. Um they thanked me and You said that they would love to have me and you know that we would be in touch as far as you know any offseason contact Now, that was pretty much just left my agent. So tell me, what do you envision is as your role with the Giants. Yeah. Hopefully, a little bit of everything. Hopefully somebody you can play multiple positions. Um, get on base. Oddball little bit, Um, keep the ball in play. Keep the strikeout slow, I think His party. You guys in the lineup who have been around for a long time. Got a lot of success, so hopefully something of the table center for those guys. Firing was saying with the Brandon Belt surgery on the hell he may not be able to make opening day and he mentioned your ability to play first base. You can play obviously second base and you can play. Third. How much shortstop have you played and your your career and is second base your best and most natural position. Um It's tough to say I I really feel comfortable at 1st 2nd and 3rd. I hadn't played My short. Um, but, yeah, I'm comfortable with the other three positions. On. Do you know, flipping over the first base? If friends not ready to goes, certainly won't be a problem. Formula. Stella's Jonas News giant here on the SportsCenter. So a couple of things Farhaan Anxiety, definitely said that he was absolutely obsessed with your strikeout to walk right, which he absolutely loves. But he also said yesterday that you and Gabe Kapler hit it off so well that he's worried you're going to cut into his phone time with Gabe Capital. So what was what Z? What was what was the reason why you would engage got off so well? Man. He's Ah, yeah, I really enjoyed talking to him. We had a couple lengthy conversations, um, on a number of things, but He's very thoughtful. Um, he's a progressive thinker, which which I like and Give you something a little bit differently And ultimately for me, it was You know, some of the I felt like I could learn from and that was important in this decision for me. Hey, not sitting really Well, if your times I've interacted with him, he's really impressive that way, So he's gonna help you as a hitter, But you're already a really good hitter. And John mentioned the strikeout to walk ratio is just really impressive. You don't you know the modern game is just let it Let it fly. And you don't worry so much about strikeouts, But your hand eye coordination. Your ability to put the ball in play is so impressive, but you know, a few years ago in 2019 with the Angels you did hit 16 home runs and you know when you add it all up last year, double digits as well. So do you feel like, you know, being around Gabe and the way that they teach hitting here? You're not going to lose any of the you know, contact ability, but you'll be able to drive the ball even a little bit more. Just give me your thoughts about that. That balance between not striking out putting the ball in play but still having the ability to strike back and hit the ball out of the ballpark. Yeah, I certainly hope so. I think for me, I kind of let the flow of the at bat dictate my approach. Um, and also the guy on the mound and the situation. Um, it doesn't always feel like every That is a time to try and drive the ball. Um not that I'm not trying to do that. But I do like the count and the game situation kind of dictates What? I'm going to take a shot like that, Um, guys out there. He's got good stuff. I don't see the ball particularly well out of his hand. You know, I don't see it benefiting me to be taking on a swing and trying to drive the ball. I think the likelihood of that starts toe to go down in those situations. So in those instances, I'm more looking to put the bat on the ball. Barrel it and hopefully find the outfield grass somewhere. But I also think that you know an advantage counts being able to pick my moments and get my a swing off and you know, being able to play every day over the last two years has allowed me to get back to that. I think you know pinch hitting for those four years in Chicago was definitely a different approach. But Being able to be out there every day getting 45 babies. Had had help with that. We're speaking with Tommy Lowe. Stella signed with the Giants officially yesterday. What was it like out there in a pandemic being a free agent, and then I would assume you want to get things going. Obviously, there's discussions of may be pushing things back, which, what's your view on on one baseball is gonna get going. I mean, also, we were on track. You know all that stuff about my pay grade, but, you know, hopefully we're good to go. I'd say you know, this offseason was Difficult just with, you know all the uncertainty,.

"You journalists. John Miller. In what 10 minutes or so We always love talking to John and we'll talk about baseball with John and But you just never know because when's the last time you spoke with him? I believe it was the Wednesday after the season it Eesh. I believe I could be wrong. You may have had a mom, but I think it was a Wednesday. After this season, and they came close. They were one hit away from winning the any one of those last games against San Diego. They could have won and they just didn't come up with the big moment. Torto to get to 500 basically sneak in, so I saw your eyes already on the Giants winning the National League West. Can we wait and see what the roster is going to be like? Okay. Just January the 13th is gonna be very different. What is this season? Gonna start is one thing you want to his john, But their roster is not complete yet. We have no, we have a lot of good free agents still out there on the hot stove, John. I know your man crush Power's out there and then I could see that But you know, how do you? How do you do this now? When the rosters air in the middle of an offseason tweak and for some teams more than that, So it's not done yet. We haven't really started the off season yet. Well in plus your palace got areas He owes this little bit because you gave him the good information on Jeff Wilson to maybe I don't know what you have to give it back Ox. He's still in No Phoebe, Gabe Gabe Kapler in their fantasy football match up, but John Rosie did tweet out yesterday on MLB network radio. Guess Scott joined those guys. And he did say that the Giants are looking for a left handed starting pitcher Esso. I did look at Lefty's who are available a lot of veterans of names here. I think it is Lucien names. Maybe maybe we'll be on this one of them. Tyler Anderson. Much of bringing There's one Tyler Anderson is on that list. Guys from outside of the organization and they're They're vets. Jose Quintana, Jon Lester Cole Hamels, J. A. Happ James Paxson, Alex would Rich Hill. So I mean, there's there's a lot of lefties. It's just those air. Those air veteran guys out of that whole group. Canton is only 31. I know a lot was expecting him with the Cubs, and they had that big trade. They gave up a lot to the White Sox, and they probably regret that trade but at one point in his career He was a good number two to Chris sale, and there's a lefty of 31, who probably cost a ton. He wouldn't be bad to have a rich hill I think would be interesting, obviously was good from his past employment. Alex Ward is a funky left hander, who could also be In the mix there, so I think that Z. I mean, if they had to play right now, um, I think there you could say going around the diamond what they would have But I don't think they have enough starting pitching right now and specifically. You lost two lefties. You know, Drew Smiley was somebody They wanted to bring back the Braves game a lot of money, but I think he could easily. Have a breakthrough year. Um and then Tyler Andrus finished more of a completely different stylistically. Smiley could blow you away or Tyler Anderson's gonna try to trick you up a little bit. And he did, you know? Is he who was he faced Colorado that one eye's former team was in Arizona or color. Arizona. It was Arizona that he faced three straight starts, which I have never heard of that. It's very common to face too. If you, you know, play a team back to back weekends. For whatever reason home in a way you may see him on a Sunday come back and see him on a Friday or You know, it happens. But for three in a row that was like, Wow, and the third one was not good. The first one was really good in Arizona was pissed. They got tricked by him because he's kind of a little more of a trickster. And then they hit him the second time and they hit him even more the third time so that there was little bit disturbing, so they may want to move on from him. But the point is, I know Billy Beane loves his left handers. He's always think one point time he had 4 to 5 starters were lefties. And it depends on supplying the man but I you know that they could play right now. With the team they have, but I think the one area they've got to get More depth. And even I would say starters, you know whether the back end guys are, however, you wanna look at it is I think they need left handed starters. So So Scott did confirm that And I think for Hunter said that as well, they need more. I think they need a couple of them. Not just one. Well, right now they're in some way shape or form Gossman Cueto. Sclafani Logan Web Tyler Beatty. They need ladies across the public's right, Thomas. Exactly. So I think you need to I think I think I would prefer them to be boat. I mean, I'm not. You noticed the Dodger lineup is pretty left hand. They did add my, my, my, my mom. They've got some good right handed hitters. Yeah, I mean, predominantly, they're pretty left added. So, Yeah, I mean, I mean, so who was predicted? To win the National League West, the eighth time division champions Dodgers or the San Diegans? Well, the odds are minus 1 65 for the Dodgers. So you've gotta put 1 65 to 100, then. The Padres are plus 1 50. So that's not bad. There's a little bit of belief in the in the in the padre. So you give up 100 bucks. You win 1 50 So that Zach closer now what I thought it would be because you go to the ballet 3 33 30 was rocking my bet $100 on the giants to win the West. I take back 3400. 3300 Plus 100. I laid down. Mm yeah. Go for it may go skiing this weekend at the sports book open, and, uh, I think they are. I think they are. Yeah, We got a little kick off late on Saturday. We're back to to know her Saturday, So I got a little ski window on Saturday morning..

I think that is going, Tio Generate a lot of discussion around the country and we saw a quick Word from the giantsclubhouse sort of like in a Cactus League game. Players who leave the game are made available for comments. I think it was Kevin Gausman, who commented on it and said, Hey, we're all here to support each other, and the message before the game was with the first anthem coming up. Since this restart that whatever anybody does, you're going to be supported around here. It's your choice and will support you.
