"Having the time of his life right now getting this opportunity. And he's taken full advantage of it. You know we saw in spring training and that's why far him brought him in. You know, he's got a good eye at the plate. Uh, knowledge of the strike zone and I took my cat to him. Capture him and hitting guys looks like he's made some adjustments at the plate or is getting a bad head out there, uh, more than he has in the past. Um he's taking better swings. And when you have that good I and plate discipline and you make those adjustments. We're seeing the results of that. The one thing I have to do is I got to get him to calm down on the the home run. High five slap. The bus took my hand off. Last night. I don't know what is with the A's. I mean, it was an exciting home run. No question, but Hunter Pence a few years back. Give me a high five in Oakland that blew out my rotator cuff and this kid last night that cold weather I couldn't feel my hand for two innings, okay? All right. Hey, um, Duggar, and he's one of my favorite players. I must say people ask me a question and you know his sub Clemson he's you know, he's a tough kid, and you had a couple of shoulder separations, and he stayed with it and I thought in spring training. I said, Why? Maybe he needs a change of scenery because I think he can play. Well, this kid has just played great in center field, but the ball he hit to tie the game up the one that scored Crawford in the 10th inning. Well, that was like a laser. It was a p that he hit right up the middle. Those are extremely big hits. He did it yesterday. You know, after we didn't get the guy to third base, the driving that runs to tie the game, he did it down in Anaheim in extra N. H. He is just getting big hit. After big hit, and you're right. I mean, look, there was comparisons to Steve Finley when he was first drafted and in the minor leagues. What the Giants and, um you know he was up. He got injured, but he really never found his stride. And he's been around a little bit. He's lived a little bit is getting an opportunity. Another guy that's made some very good adjustments at the play. We always knew we could play center field, and that's why we're fans of him because he was our best center fielder can run the ball down. But the way he's swinging the bat and laying off pitches, um he looks like a completely different place right now, and he's a big big reason why we're having the success that we're having. Yeah, confident at the plate. He just has that look in his eye and no wait does to the two of them and they've been a big big big help here. All right, let's take to the winning run here. Dugger said after the game, he said, if you put a stop sign up, there was no way he was stopping. And he said he wasn't even looking. Um, the ball goes down the left field line. It kicks off that that little cushion And, uh, Duggar just keeps flying. And, uh he scores the winning run great play. Yeah, well, I think he was a little excited after the game with those comments, but I would have tackled him if he had no chance to score. I think, um, you know, it's what as the play develops. Look, Tony Camp doesn't have a strong throwing army as one of the weaker arms in the league. So you have that going for you? We're really made the play and it was a late decision is the ball hitting the pad and kind of dropping still, then he had to come three or four steps and it really is a last minute decision. On my part, whether to hold them or send them because there is one out and you can score him with a fly ball. But you want to get him in if you can, and that extra time it took those three steps and we're Duggar was at And the way he can move at third base. Coaches dream to have somebody that can run like that. When you have a slow guy. It's a much tougher decisions so unfortunately for him, he cut the corners good, and that was a pretty good first to home on his part, and then ended up He ended up scoring and we ended up winning the game. They had that look in his eye, didn't he? Yeah, Yeah, yeah, I didn't see as I to go. But I watched the replace. I was watching the ball more than his eye. But, you know, I could see where he was at when he was coming around third. And when Cam picked up the ball, um, it just it just happened that you know, I felt good that he was going to go ahead and score and and the excitement that followed there was was fantastic because the previous ending right we have the guy thrown out. I know you may want to ask about that play. Um, which is something that we've done in the past, but it was a big win. Yeah, yeah. Believe me the ninth inning, another exciting moment for everybody, And that's why you go to the games. I mean, let's face it. This is where you everything unfold slowly. You see it almost in slow motion. And you take those images home and I take the image home from last night in the ninth inning. Of Chapman throwing just a laser to the plate. And Kemp doesn't have the big arm and Chapman throws weighed out at the plate and what happened. Well, you have two outs. And, you know camp doesn't throw, although he was really, really shallow, But I would say every third base coach in the league is going to make him throw you out. And what made the play was they did something that we didn't see them do before, and I don't know if it was a design play. I really don't think it was because I didn't see any on video. If Kim tries to throw that ball all the way to the plate, uh, made, um Lamont's got a real good chance of scoring with two outs and you have to make him Throw you out because of the reports in the way he throws, But he did something that we used to do with boats when he was here, and we had Dave Robertson left field, we called it the bonds I play. You know, it has been done, and it's been done and in Japan for years. And what the outfielders do. The way we set it up is we'd have the left fielder who didn't have a strong arm. Fire the ball right to Crawford. That's on the dirt. You know, depending how deep the outfield there are, is he could be. You know, it is deep shortstop position. He could be like a double play depth. But instead of that week arm trying to throw the ball the way in. It's a quick relay. Uh to the infielder. It's usually the cut off. Man is, you know down by the mound like a lot deeper, and they did the same thing and got that ball in Chapman's arm and And, of course, the rocket he has, You know, they had weight easily, but it was. It was a play. I didn't anticipate because we hadn't seen it and they pulled it off and it was a big play to save the game at that point. Yeah, no outstanding play. And Chapman obviously is a platinum glove winner, or whatever you know he was the best fielder in in the American League, so didn't shock me. We've seen Crawford do it as you point out, and I remember some of the outfielders and Johnny Damon didn't have a good arm in center field and the and the the infielder would go out halfway to get the ball. I've seen that before. Yeah, You're exactly right. And it's a design play and again. Maybe the age didn't we just didn't have the video on it, But, uh, we.

Whistler. Paul, what's first worked, Matt Whistler that Maddie Whistler. Okay. All right, Maddy Whistler. Come on in 20 month was Jersey Man. Yeah. The other thing that's in the news for the Giants is Chadwick Trump is back. Oh, come on. Don't you feel about that? He was seen. He's very upbeat. Dude. He tweets very positively. You know, he's a backup catcher. What That does sound like, though, is that that means of Buster comes back, and he will You start Joey Barton. Triple A, which is, you know, I don't know how you feel about that. I mean, I'd like to Like to see more bark, But maybe he does, you know, be nice to get a few more Triple eight. That's the whole reason we wanted him up last summer was because he wasn't getting any meaningful work and Sacramento and since it was a few Gezi season anyway, we wanted to come on up. So so Chadwick Trump. Maybe we'll be opening the season as the number two catcher. Perhaps to spell Posey. Then the other one is just guys to see Hunter Pence did a little thing on MLB network. And he mentioned Broadcasting the whole really? Yeah, I wonder. You know, I don't know. Hey, probably be pretty good. I could see him doing like a well we in terms of what, like in the booth or like a desk, he says, potentially doing something in broadcasting at least talking about the game being around the game. If the Giants do hit me up. Obviously, I'd love to share whatever I can with the organization. That sounds like a no brainer. Doesn't it disappoints me. They're very few giants or his beloved as he is. I mean, the fans love this, dude. And yeah, he'd be a great addition to the To the roster over there. Yeah, I mean, listen, drum on the desk. Give me some pregame 100 Pence. You know, Mike and Wayne to live forever, and I plan on them. They have no choice. They have to. I've made that decision on their behalf. They need to keep going. I believe was no on Liam Gallagher, Who said you and I are gonna live forever to see what I mean. I couldn't see. I couldn't have told you that. I can't quote those guys. Yeah, I scoop you on Oasis lyrics there told me, you know, um, but he if Mike and Wayne 20 years from now, do we They're gonna have to have somebody step on in and you know it made big strides. Was Estes. Yes. This really has and wiping and gotten very, very good. He's taken great strides. Yeah, as a broadcaster. Totally hunter could I don't know how Hunter would be just because you're like, super upbeat dude, and you're fun to talk to and listen to me that it's not necessary that you're always a good broadcaster. Like for access. It took a while, like he gets it first started. He wasn't as good as he is now. But you know, who knows? Maybe Hunter is a natural. Maybe Maybe it is some That he would want to do so he's probably gonna be pretty. I would imagine he'd be pretty good because you got so much knowledge He's seen and done it all in the game, and he and he's a good speaker. Like I think he would. Probably a good communicator. Get his point across. Yeah, he put out a picture on his social media over the weekend, Paul he was eating a piece. He was eating a box of a slice of pizza or maybe a small pizza in a box. On top of a garbage can right near our office. It zip. It was on the corner of Columbus and, um what was the other? It was the cross street. It was right near That science is Jackson Square. What was that place called the Bubbles Lounge. You know that place cope? Do what would you What? What? It's shocking. Murph. If I told you I've been to the bubble lounge that serious, dead serious after work event, why was a long time ago? I'll just put it to you like this. It is true story. I mean, I got nothing to hide. But no, I was on a date, and my date took me to the bubble lounge. True story was probably comfortable at the bubble and very uncomfortable in the bubble. Want what God's name am I doing? Here It was. Montgomery and Columbus is that he was on the corner there. He was eating a piece of peace and he tweeted it out, and people bombarded him with pizza recommendations around the city and all that coach. You want to close it out. You say there. We actually have Matt Whistler sound. You wanna be network radio yesterday, and he talked about what? He's excited. He's coming to San Francisco. Here we go way too good for me, I think Um, you know the way they use of opening something. What benefit me a little bit as the last year to a bouncer and a lot of different roles.

"They seem ready to go. I know Barry Gar give up that run, but ultimately they look pretty good. So Anyway, This one's about the trade deadline here traded lines around the corner. The 31st of this month last year four on was active. And I think this year it could. It may take him to the final like ours or day of this this trade window. To make a decision on what it is he's doing. They did make a trade yesterday, Daniel Robertson comes over. He was a former first round from the age who's currently in the race situation. He comes over for cash considerations or a player to be named later. After Well, this is what led to Hunter Pence being defamed. Robertson was taken 34th overall by the Asian 2012. He was traded to Tampa in 2015. That's when the A's acquired Ben Zobrist. He's got a 3 40 on base percentage in the minor leagues. It's I guess his calling card at nine homers in 2018 just 16 overall in 700 minor league bat. She's not some some big slugger, but it's a depth piece. Maybe something to add here, so we'll see what happens around the trade deadline. But anyway, they ask Gabe Kapler yesterday with the trade deadline about a week away, and you just had the six game win streak Sort of feels like it did last year. Just because things are have ramped up and things are in such a smaller window. Now you're near the end of the season or you're halfway through the season. Excuse me does the six game win streak? Paired with how the team's been playing and the trade deadline coming up. Change anything for you. For this season and also how important is this Dodgers series? Is this all coming to play with whether that you guys are buyers at the deadline? I can certainly understand that perspective. Sometimes it seems like one game or or a three game serious takes on added an element of importance. I wouldn't say that all games are equal and never believe that But I will say that our job is to just a especially focused on the step right in front of us. There will be time to get to Game two in the game three And to be thinking about the theories in its entirety. But before that, we have work to do on the off day, and we have to be thinking about Game one. And so right now, The only game that we're thinking about is the first name of the doctor Siri's could be fun could be really fun. If you do damage against the Dodgers, you take two or three from the Dodgers. Then things start to get a little Little interesting at the end of this week. Right? Then you start talking about what you could do again. I don't know how much you could give up or what you'd even bring in. You have to really Maybe maybe you're willing to take on some money for an expiring contract. Who knows? And how much money isn't in a short paraded season like this all stuff we're going to pay attention to for the rest of this week. Bottom line is 14 and 16 giant have been fun to watch this week and they have been competitive. You just aren't thinking if and maybe in what if had Trevor got napping in there in those ninth innings anyway, 510 checks in on the cash through text line. And I think this is an a stand coming back at the other texture Who'd taken a shot at name? One meaningful game that That Billy Beane and one this guy, says 51 meaningful game. How about four in the 1989 World Series? He says Billy was on that team. Is there any franchise that hangs her hat on, like one World championship? From 30 years ago. A man seriously Yeah, Dave whispers in my ear. How about bears fans? Yeah, the bears fans love love to tell you about 1985 and then get in my lifetime anyway, will make the connection with Murph it back Nice little landing spot for them here in the leadoff spot. On the other side you're listening to can be our 1045 and 6 80 sports leader. This is the leadoff.

"Yeah, we do need to fix that. Yeah, I do. I do. I mean, the fact they still had Hunter Pence out in right field, and they could have moved into left Took Darren Rough out. They put to go to Bonn and Centre and movie house toe left. They could have moved. He asked to write with pens to left. So it's like, Yeah, it's like, you know, that's one extra move the capital about making right now, that could be the difference. The Pence misplaced Ah bone, with no 50 expected average into a double. And that was just one more thing she ever got over that. He couldn't that Saturday against the A's so, but, yeah, I mean, we saw it and we all know £100. But we saw it two years ago. You can't play the outfield in major leagues anymore, And he's a detour a pensioner on this team, and that's probably what he should be, and that means you need to carry more outgoing. Great stuff, Andy. Even writing a good, thoughtful baseball analysis will continue to read it and talk to you next time. Thanks, man. Okay, don't you think it's Andy Bagley Coast? Top of your head. Do you know? Did Hunter pence? Play all I can look it up. Did he play any defense for the Rangers last year? I'd imagine he did. But I don't know if that I don't know for likes, actually, after talking a little bit. Probably a little. I don't know, because he says he's saying, you know, he's not a viable, right. Defensive outfielder named here Love No more Chalk outlines Murphy. As we said the other day. I wanted to give you right now on defense that it got a four. Yeah, he played gases so long. Yeah. 23 games in the last 23 games. I think I read that right? Yeah. Okay. On the other side. Well, listen, it was an emotional day. Maybe an emotional conclusion to the day next. Okay and be our own 045 and 6 80 years later. You're listeningto Murph in Mac available now on your Google home. Smart Speaker. This is knbr 1045 and 6 80, the sports leader.

"Repair and it's Hunter Pence. It's Houston. And this was a big three run homer. Here's the pitch. Drive to right field and pretty well hit Reddit going back. This one is over the wall and gone. Just barely, And I mean, just barely but 100 peds goes opposite field for a three run homer. Swing that the Giants have been waiting for. This is a one run game Hunters first home run of the year. Statcast has it at 337 feet. He needed every single foot of that to get it over the wall. Big home run and lead to a victory. So we're glad to do that. Time to take a look at this week's prevented steals total for every stolen base of giant Prevent. This year, Bay Alarm will donate $200 to the Giants Community Fund, just like the Giants control the bases and access control system from bay Alarm. Lets you control who could go Where At your business, safeguarding your people and your property. It's one more way Bay alarm helps Yuki less and control more now. More than ever, Bay alarm and believe me, it is the truth. So far this season, the Giants have five runners caught stealing a big week for the Giants for a total of $1000. Being donated to the Giants Community fund. So glad to do that, And we welcome in. Bruce Jenkins. Bruce. Good morning. How are you? Good morning, Dario. Very good. And, you know, I always say Khun Lightning strike twice and It gets you wrote about it and my guts. What? What did you think watching this thing last night? Well, not only that it struck in the middle of night. That makes three times I know. Well, I mean, I was just thinking, you know that this this you could see it unraveling, but this can't happen again. It's just not this soon. Not not not two in a row, and I didn't expect it from Canada. But, you know good, good grief. You know the thing I Take away from mostly, I guess is that got Trevor God has shown the Giants that he's probably the best option they have is a closer. Uh, he proved that early on, but you know his fastball straight as a string Marty, and sometimes he blows guys away, but sometimes he doesn't He puts it right down the middle on Canada's jumped all over it. That's not the not the first time you guys have gone deep on him. I'm not saying he's a disaster out there, and I don't think the Giants will give up on God. But I'm not sure what their options are, and I wouldn't be surprised if they at least try some other people as the season goes on. I think so. And the thing that got me Bruce and watching the last two nights and I don't know, maybe it's a cosmetic thing, and maybe I put too much emphasis on it. But Nobody goes out to calm the waters is Bill asked. He likes to say I mean, at some point after you almost hit Chapman. He was lucky They didn't hit him. And then Olson got the walk and all this chaos is going And this guy's still on the ball all over the place. Don't you come out and say son. Hell's afloat here. Billy's getting mad, You know, like garden Valley used to say Well, for one thing. You don't have a guy like they were getting, you know, going out there. And gay probably isn't getting mad, not, you know, he's he's pretty pretty even tempered. You know, they're they're they're coaching staff is in littered with people who can calm waters in a crisis, and I think also all around baseball. Teams are very reluctant to gather in any way to get close to somebody to talk to him. You hear wearing the friggin mask and the picture is it and it's just something you don't want to do. So I think there's a lot of factors there, but, Ah, you know, I think I think if it uh if they had somebody like, uh You know, like Dave Righetti really established pitching coach who's been known to Ah, you know, work miracles with guys and is very trusting. That might be a little different. That's a good point. Now, that's well taken. Ah, Darren Rough. I thought a big home run there a lot of good things. The giant should be up to nothing in this. Siri's Gausman pitched very well. The bullpen behind them was good. Watson was solid. Cueto is good the night before so rough it the big home run last night, too? Yeah, Once again, they were the right handed hitting lineup. This is just you know, every night it's it's proving it's it's worth. I don't think there's any doubt that facing a leftie, the Giants are going to put runs on the board. There. They're putting them up consistently treats a point where it's not some fluke ish thing that right handed hitting lineups get hit more often not get you five or six runs, which is what you usually would take to win a game. You know there, There's there is, um a lot of bright spot in the rotation with the guardsmen has been, you know very good. Cueto's very good. Ah, and you know, you kind of hope that Logan Web you know, put together a few good outings in a row. Smile is hurt right now, But you know, there's some good things are happening in the rotation. It's just Ah T. Matteo. A snake. That isn't the word, but they set themselves up for failure with these horrible defensive plays, Marty, you just can't do these things, and it happens almost every night. Yeah, Yeah, They shouldn't be enough to sink you right? I have been, but it has been. What happens afterwards had interesting discussion with Ron Wotus this morning. He got a good view of two great third baseman Matt Chapman, of course, and Evan Longoria. And he said Chapin Place so deep Bruce. He's on the grass. It's like Ernie Lombardi was up..

"I think you know you're talking about San Diego. We don't hear much. What's his name? J Sting, Glor. So, Yeah, just just saying that the capital was a former player that he's got ah, different philosophy on things. Of course. Everybody remembers the mishaps with how he handled the pitching staff in Philadelphia, his first Couple of weekends. I think that's sort of put him on the map is we've talked about morning. He's going to use the analytics. They're going to use the the readings of the computers and whatever the numbers tell them. I was looking today at the line of Hunter Pence's in there th today, isn't it? Yes, Yes, he is. Yes, it is another hitter, Native bath again serious in his career. So you know the numbers tell you what they tell you, but going riding against lefty just to do it. Sometimes guys just have other guys numbers. I don't know. I don't know what the numbers are there, but he's more of a character, I guess in some of those other guys for me, which is maybe why he gets more attention. All right, but she just seems for a new manager to all of a sudden you've got to deal with the clubhouse, so to speak. It's the last thing you want to deal with, because you're in the year honeymoon period. You know all the enthusiasm and everything else. And all of a sudden, you know, maybe it's the fact that we're doing zoom things and writers can't get to the players to really, you know, ferret out exactly what's going on. But it's interesting to me, eh? I asked the question of myself. What have I learned? The first weekend. The baseball and that is that the pitching staff is still very unsettled, as you say, and the defense's has moved around a lot, and that is still not settled, but that will get better. Because of Longoria and belt coming back, and I think Crawford will get more play. I don't think they can afford to take him out. So I've learned that and I do think the right handed lineup has some thump in it. And Wilma floors is is a hitter, I say, like Sandoval, San DIMOs Wild Sandoval swing in anything, this guy will swing it just about every pitch, but he is seems to be more selective and putting the bat on the ball agree. Yeah, I agree with you, he said he's a battler is the place. He doesn't strike out a whole lot of things. They never note yesterday of a broadcast that he was a bottom or as Faras. Ah, good rating goes like a top three strikeout rate guy last year in the National League. So for a guy who will battle and we'll stay in and bats and we'll put the bottom ball. I think that's your You're sort of public comparison there, right? We'll swing at pitches, but he'll put wood on them to stay alive at the plate, and he does have a little bit of top of the fact that he can play just about every position on the infield. Get more looked at third days Now, as you said, with one going out that helped them and he's he's kind of. I mean, he's a veteran that they need and the interesting thing about floors they think about you. He's the first guy and the only guy Farhaan has given a multiyear deal. He's gonna see you the contract, So he's here. He's gonna be here for a couple of years. And I think they plan on him being a key part of the day to day one. Even with the moving parts on defense that you're talking about. Yeah, They've got to find a comfortable spot for him because I already Solano is 1/3 until Longoria gets back. And now floors is over. It's secondly a trouble tone of first base, just but I like the bat. I definitely definitely like the bet. I thought Jalen Davis, you know, for his 11 hit. He had a couple of it bats. It didn't look very good, but for his one hit again, he had a laser shot to right field. Yeah, I wondered about guys like that, who are sort of looking to find their bearings at the major league level. Like we were talking about two platoons a lot with thighs like a Flores. Or, like Crawford. We're seeing other veterans. Maybe they're more accustomed to that. But I liked you and Davis a lot. I just wonder about you know what? What Ah group of consistent at bats might do for him if he got 15 or 20 consecutive The best way to get to play every day for four days, five days what that could do for him because I do think he's a He's a power guy. He could get into a groove and start seeing some tensions. But so far it doesn't seem to be the case in there again today, though, isn't it? Yeah. Yeah, And I think he could do some damage. Look curious is a guy change up guy and you swing and miss a lot with him gets a lot of strike out. These 20 three's a lot smarter. He's a change up on. I think that's Jalen Davis. You know, you know if he knows of fastballs coming, if he could just crank it up a little bit. He can. He can hit it, but we'll see what happens with him tonight. But he's clearly someone I'm watching concerned at all about Yvonne and then the start he's having you know, he is playing everywhere is it? Affecting his offense. You know, we kind of talked about that yesterday. He still he still kind of figured it out when he's he doesn't look a little overmatched right? Like he does look like he's He's kind of treading water right now, and I know every everyday at bats for a guy like that, as you said, and he's playing a new position sometimes second. Sometimes he's a short run of the play outfield you're looking for and to be a consistent right handed that for you against left handed pitching. And and the fact that he struggled, But he's out of there today, and I know he's away in one career of that. I think he's the only giant out of the lineup today that that has had it bad against worries. But yeah, a little bit concerned because I think they were counting on him. I think you're looking for plus defense, and, um, I was hoping for top of the order, maybe even even roll over it. That's there down in the end of the nine holes a little bit worried, but it's a relief for a couple games. I got him in center field. He's hitting ninth. I think tonight. Always in his place. Okay? Yeah, I think. Yeah, He's in there tonight. Hitting knife about your straps Key. Is he turning it to like, sort of the intelligent leader of the ball club. Yeah, It's sort of funny, right? It seems like he's a veteran. Maybe it's because he spent so much time in the minors and such a great season last year, But you forget it's just a second bigwig season them. I'm really impressive if he does, he does sort of seem like the model of consistency right now for the team. He seems like he's the He's the on field later, and I'm not sure how the guys take them in the clubhouse. First day, but every time we've got him on the show, we've spoken to him. He's a He's a great dude. He's a good baseball mind. Andi. I'm with Mark. He seems sort of like he's a leader right now and anything, but he's executed every Sunday pastor I love that He's an everyday player. Yeah, he doesn't get overwhelmed. He knows what he wants. He knows what he wants to say. And he's very strong in his convictions. I like what I hear from him. Hey, let's take a break. Adam is with us. We're after the break. We're going to come back with Ron Wotus. Part two. And then Adam will join us and wrap it up with us and get us ready for a Giants and Dodgers game four of this of this play of play off of this weekend, it feels like a playoff.

"A ball bouncing ball up the middle backhanded by Pinto. He will throw to first and Sandoval's retired two outs. Go ahead, Sana ball play perfectly. Now it'll take a hitter in the state. By the Dodgers and in the same spot in the fourth. They walk Buster Posey. After a couple of pitches, they walked him intentionally. So here's her shot a posie And the pitch and it's low, just low, one ball and no strikes. It is interesting, even with the left hander on the bound how the Dodgers are playing the right side of the infield against Posey are they're playing himto Pull way off the line is Hairston. And the pitch Posey hydride, right center field. This is hit a ton. This baby is way back and it bounces up against the wall Coming into scores. Zero in this game is time they couldn't get all night. They get here in the sixth. Very fastball belt high out over the plate. And Buster Posey does. Buster Posey does best He goes the other way. Another ball. That's probably a big play Most park almost every single one. I think that's a home run in other than this part. So here's Pence fences over to pit and pit line drive centerfield basis to it. They're gonna wave in opposing him. Throw is on the line. It's a good one poser slides. And he is out at the plate. So Tim Flannery taking a risk, and I think you have to take it. Hunter Pence with a base hit Posey thrown out of the plate..

"Couple notes for you as we awaits a phone call from Mister hunter pence we're gonna do is stock up stock down for the San Francisco Giants a little bit later on this hour and as mentioned Dustin land is going to happen here as well director of hitting slash assistant hitting coach for the giants he'll jump on here in about twenty minutes or so looking for that conversation also just so you understand where we kind of go stock up stock down I don't want anybody to think that one spring at batter one spring outing really changes the entire vision for the roster but I'm I I do look at certain players and there are certain trends that sort of pop up and even though many of us are simply reading a spring box score which is less hottest filled with fallacies as far as building opinions because does go to spring training especially the pictures for instance Logan Webb even this is a good example he talked about this today Logan is working on different things a pitcher in spring training may not be sitting there and thinking to himself okay I'm going to try to get this head around it's quite possible that a pitcher's sitting there in spring training going I don't even know who this header is but what that picture is doing that pitcher maybe saying log the I have this new pets that I've been working on let's see what we can do with it here and it may get knocked out of the ballpark and then their numbers look bad and and then we all pass judgment on the whole thing Logan Webb today went to a third gave up one run three hits couple strikeouts but I do think for instance in that race for the the fifth rotation spot I think that Tyler Beatty has taken a huge step forward he was probably already the guy the giants wanted to be in that spot that was the guy that the the giants were hoping would grab that spot and it's only been a couple outings but they've been good video went out there today through another scoreless inning had another strike out his his velocity has been popping they probably want him to be that guy they can be more patient with Logan Webb but there are so many other guys that you could probably factor into that conversation are there some of my trouble K. Heller Tyson Ross Sir Andrew Suarez or we could go on economist has had time coming up last year there are younger players Derek Rodriguez even so there is a wealth of options but that's by design that's exactly what Farhan Zaidi is hoping that by design a lot of options at every position but right now Tyler Beatty certainly the inside track and then the core for if you will to borrow a term from the Golden State Warriors for just a second the core for have done nothing to throw anybody off of their sent either Cueto and Samardzija have looks really good drew Smyly and Kevin Gosden have looks really really good the house man did he go out there earlier this week and not throw a ball that I see that we look that up for me Ralph I feel like god was last time out was something like thirteen pages in a Denver ball or something like that so he looks fantastic Hey I'm I know a lot of people think with these starters you have all those younger guys that the giants may want to get a look at in the second half of the season but you've got for a stab was veteran starting pitchers at the top of the rotation you see someone like Severino with the Yankees get hurt you thanks man might that be away for the giants to who knows get their hands on Clint Frazier or or some hot prospect of the eighties organization chart chart that's that is a scenario that could play out in the in may June and July so that's absolutely a possibility the other thing that could happen now is is that the giants have an excellent return from their starting rotation now what does that mean early in the season as far as their record whether the giants are are are dreaming of the playoffs this year or not whether you as a fan are dreaming of the playoffs this year or not are there very well could be a runner to in the team in the first half of the year just like there was last year because of the presence of a consistent starting pitching that is absolutely a possibility a couple other guys and a couple other things to mention Jaylen Davis got the plate for two plate appearances today he's still struggling with catching up to high fastballs and looking like he has about they can hang with major league pitching he did do a nice job with plate discipline though today as he walked in both of his at bats another observation Steven Duggar I mentioned him earlier he had a triple today that's huge dog is going to have to he's going to have to do some things with the bat his discipline needs to be better needs to strike out last they are looking at him he started to get a lot of the dots I think because they want to get as many looks at Steven Duggar as possible before they make a call on him he does have an option in other words he can be sent to the minors and he stays within the organization that's something that might work against him when you look at the outfield this year and see all of the different options that the giants habits not just outfielders pans deckers then your Stransky about players who can play in the outfield do bond maybe even Flores who knows belt I spent some time out there there are players like Austin Slater good I just mention Jaylen Davis there's Chris Shaw there so many options out there in the outfield it is very crowded I Joey Rickard is having a huge spring will that matter could he end up on the roster he got another hit today's hitting five forty five in the spring so that's kind of interesting when you look at a certain number of these players and how they factor in to the Max all right we continue giants hot stove we've got Dustin land assistant hitting coach for the team who's gonna join us here in just about ten minutes we'll try to connect with hunter pence as well and continue and your calls welcome also it away cambiar and stock up stock down around the corner as well as we continue on the sports later.

"Welcome back to K. B. on a Friday rot off today with the sick child to be back with us on on tomorrow I should say is on Saturday for fan fest if you're just tuning in giants fan fest cambiar giants fan fest tomorrow morning delaski gets rolling out of the ballpark nine AM and then we Murph and mac and gray again tall and John and then rod Tom and I and then Willard and should be great day giants back in action in the today the pick to Billy Hamilton and hunter pence and we'll see we'll see we'll see what this thing is going to be as funny as I say before that you know I bet Willard the under last year but the team that I bet against didn't have Dickerson didn't he has didn't have Pelor didn't have basically they're out entire good outfield last year it was really really bad so don't do what I did folks don't bet Willard on the under because I think far on just from talking to him he's looking to make incremental improvements so if he can make a little addition today in a little additional Morrow and obviously the main thrust is developing bishop and Luciano and Barton jelly and all their prospects but if you can make little additions the major league level he's going to do it so expect more moves coming up in the days ahead more moves in the cactus league more moves probably in the month of April the whole message there is don't but the under because you don't know which one do you hope you don't know exactly what you'll be betting what's a rotation a bit quite also marja Cueto some margin because men because men smiley BT yeah that sounds right that sounds right login web of swaras orgasm so disappointed in Calgary I as a reminder really likes war is that that I like the way he battles I like the way he can give up to in the first and get in and and just kind of pick himself up by the bootstraps and give you five but I don't like the fact the gives up to in the for other not give up to in the first but he throws for combined before then you think okay this guy of all yeah little guy but he just whatever it is I don't know because the ball if if it doesn't have a break is it just a a what I don't know what it is it is some guys throw like he threw harder in Bumgarner and may not even near the picture the Bumgarner is because Bumgarner has a damned and you know the slider and Bumgarner has that that arm angle to me like I I don't know if you can teach kids this but a lot of it is if you get the wind up zero had this wind up and then this kind of you don't know the ball's coming from is like Bumgarner had that like sling shot any of the massive back so you dislike where the ball was the ball push there it is and it looks like ninety five it's five ninety one yeah and then they had the Carter they just give you board in on your hands and then the Kerr we know what a pitch it good command yeah good command didn't but it is so much to pitching other than velocity velocity helps there's no doubt about it I mean I guess if you're a giants fan other than like winning the division and all that stuff which is a pipe dream it's you know what but best case scenario young guys play well they come up we're we're game you know gonna win in the mid seventies and then like quit doing some margin have like really good seasons ever get traded by the deadline in teams like when you get a couple prospects are one prospect for that guy like I do you know top two hundred guy for that guy for could be good mean it could be it could be gauze Miller smiley I mean that's yeah you're absolutely right they get at the trade deadline that is definitely a part of their core probably Mauricio to bond what they get for him Pomerantz exactly who would have thought that when the little piece of Baltimore when they take a five Natalie the first give of six I was like I don't want to see is K. ever pitching this guy go away it's is for nothing to five four or five nothing to six five I think is five nine six five as like seriously you can hold the five nothing lead into the second and then the patient out of the bullpen and the walk you wanted him okay well we can use this guide the bullpen he was good and you get a good prospect so that's what you're hoping like again this is gonna suck could kind of suck for us this summer we have Giants baseball all summer long and it's going to be another hard season eight over under sixty eight math I take the over but go I would go with the first well sixty at such a low number but that's that's approaching a hundred losses but this year look I'll watch the games you will too I hope some young guys come up but life sucks good thank you thanks to me next year is a year like next year it's time to bring out the weapons say what are we doing here like I'm not there yet I know some giant fans are but next your I am not even a giant fan but they didn't Jane fans suck it up you had three was zero seven angels fan try signing Josh Hamilton in CJ Wilson and Albert pool holes you guys just got a job in the other day and we have and we have Mike trout we can make the playoffs so you not only hear crap seriously I'd like I like my team to make the playoffs like once they take your crap tells where only two thousand for a long time ago okay so you get you three World Series but so this was inevitable at some point next year is the year make sure is here you're saying this time to see some real what we have for Hon what do we have guys who did the list let's we need to start moving forward this year is another year and it's been about three now and I'm willing to say it look it might giants fan no but I'd like to see some sensitivity estimate and we're tied to the whole thing let's be totally honest I don't know okay well we're tied to it I'm not I don't feel like I don't feel like I always felt like look we could do a show in would be we have fun we have a good time if the giants socked I've done that before so I I don't look at it is like all we need the chances exceed doesn't help course it helps but it's more fun to talk about a lot more fun when you come in here every day it's like he lost again seven to one well now do is say I'm just not as I don't want to be a screamer Ernie Yeller and like take calls like people are passed like a a they don't like that it's probably better radio but I can give me to the winds that's more fun to talk with him the wins so they one for a long time this school now they've lost one more year ago they come out next year and dislike their terrible on the prospects are good that I'm like you know what you've just wasted like three or four years I don't I win seventy games this year if bart reaches the bigs if Rameau's reaches the bigs of jelly reaches the bigs and we see some growth you know I'm I'll be excited right Timmy's Rabanus hard because we gotta take a time out Dennis remains in the last three over there don't over there maybe once and this gala Dennis rainy and top of the hour we'll talk a little bit with Dennis Tim Ryan at five thirty I want to throw to Tommy next segment though our good buddy Michael Lombardi from the athletics is the raiders get ready to move on from from Derek Carr is that is actually

"S. restaurant so giants lose it today three to one to the cardinals let's go to Robert in San Francisco Robert eight away can be our go ahead. well I got a new mortgage couple of questions. figured a great DiMaggio and manage with good outfielders well how come they are the media knew the spectacular whiting catches I'm not sure of being. what what are you guys better no well they did in fact today will only when it is when the center fielder in the right fielder collided it looked to me like that famous picture of Bobby bonds and Willie Mays climbing up on I think maze climbed up but bonds but not mistake catch I recall that yeah but they did Robert and how you doing otherwise what's the what do you think about this I respect your baseball knowledge let's get into the more contemporary times with you can I ask one other question about of about the ship sure okay I don't mean to single out Brian bellflower Brandon belt the other day the giants were down three to one yes the ninth inning there's one out there is nobody all on. no one sitting I think. two eighteen closer to a successful sharper voice takes about seventy percent of the time. if he has to say one in four chance of getting down to but not better than a one in five chance of getting a hit why doesn't he put the ball down not just the situation they put it down Robert depends on the situation Spencer what the game is look like who the picture is there's a million things and that's one you should call up when it happens because I don't remember it all right we're going to run on let's go to David on I five David you're on KNBR six eighty eight I can't be our go ahead. no I'm David you're Marty. alley Sally and Josh and RAF so good. okay so start Hey our first well we appreciate what you've already you're amazing so it's a lot of fun keep them alive even after a tough day like this. I want to pick up on what Brian was saying I have wondered for a little while about coaching specifically hitting coach Jay add to specifically point out hunter pence's experience where he struggled mightily certainly has miseries but could not find a stroke what the giants and moved to the Astros and just tears of that era yeah I would love to know the story behind that and whether there are other stories and then I just want to throw and also that maybe we can find something to what they're doing over in Oakland because our guys are not hitting a man the those young open days hit the ball. I agree with a lot of what you said it's a New World today of hitting coaching if you're hitting coach today and someone said this the other day and when you sign a contract you want to have you want it known that the players to go to other people for advice or not beholden to you so they that doesn't reflect on you players today you have a lot of autonomy and they're always looking for other ways to get better and all these online analytical things are coming about and the hitting gurus are showing up all around the country so players who struggle take advantage of it the hitting coach is obviously the day you'd like to get a better launch angle the game is different you walk you strike out yet a home run for pants specifically when he was here last year he was banged up a lot and here just change this is swing to some degree and I can't even explain what he did but he's now the American leak and he's in the American League with the ball flies and just like you just described the Oaklyn ETS he's got the swing when he gets a pitch now he's driving it he's not missing it and he's knocking it out of the ballpark the National League he couldn't do that because they pitched him away they pitched him away and he chased when they came up in any could get the bad around so he ended up with a very poor season last year but he never gave up and he went to the Dominican Republican nobody works harder than this guy so he landed in the American League on a team that crushes the ball where he's one of those guys that just fits into the ball club here he had to be the guy to carry it and it wasn't Katy wasn't capable and of it anymore so hitting coaches are in transition because everybody's got a shot to go somewhere else and I'll throw it out the alley on this one at RAF with Josh as well hitting gurus do they get in the way of hitting coaches today. I'm I think they can be complementary I think that they can help and and I mean. you're you're dealing with hitting coach on a seasonal basis right and so to have someone else to come help you and just have a different perspective I think can just make all the difference that think it's also I mean moving with hunter pence having that that new ballpark like you're saying in the American League the he just seem to really gel with with his new team and there's a lot that went into it but I think sometimes you do just need a fresh pair of eyes and that's nothing to say something against your hitting coach said you've been with the whole time but I think I think they can be complementary. all right Dave what else you got. all right now that's good that's good you know let's see what happens and what I'd love to see happen in September is to have quite get settled in and have a good game or two and it would really old you know that would from a PR standpoint and on optimism standpoint for next year that would change the perspective on this team a lot yeah I I I he's on my list of things that far hun would like to see and that is quite I put them they loved it together Cueto Bumgarner answered Marcia to have them finish strong and then made a I got to back off a little bit on the ending so Bogart as in the two hundred and some margin doesn't need you know as many is because he didn't pitch last year but for quite for those three. if you're gonna make an offer to Bumgarner and who knows what his mark it's going to be you don't know but if he did come back with those three you'd like this you'd like to know that you that they'd look solid enough in September to bring a back. absolutely absolutely and quite would I mean that would be like you know the second coming in to be great to have them back that's gonna be fun to see that David thank you thanks again. thank you but all right let's go to market Sam Cisco a to a cambiar go ahead mark. yeah more like to see a lot of jailing Davis and Chris Shaw. I get. you know I think Chris she was a chance to maybe be a future first baseman lot of power same with Davis you got two young power hitters and let's see what they can do let let them play give them a a lot of opportunity also stick with BT and let web page you know let these young guys pitch and by next year we should be figuring out this giants team might be don't pretty darn good we just have to take a look at some of the young guys see how they fit in I'm sure bond is going to be really active in the off season so I'm looking really optimistic at the giants specially for next year in the future with the organization change. I'm gonna give you another one here as a fan okay my first one was C. bow to get kicked out my next one is as a fan. I'd like to see Dickerson Anya strips you really have a big month of September because Dickerson went when they did their thirty two and eighteen and then got back into this thing and sort of turn the season around he led the way then he got hurt then he had some back spasms and he had the bleak and they look kind of you know really like he couldn't he wasn't mobile when he was when he was hitting any really hasn't had a lick since he's come back from from that injury at all you strip ski is exciting I am I just want to see how much you think you can count on it next year because the league will adjust to him he's an older players been around and there's a book on him so as a fan I'd love to see those two guys have a big September I would just like to see because I think that that's sort of the fun of this season so I guess that's right go with that one. I think your Christian it isn't boy if you could stay healthy I think that's the key with him if he can stay healthy and he showed he can hit and if you can do that next year and stay in the line up boy that would really help the giants quite a bit so I agree with you I like to see him have a good day good September. all right cool mark thank you thank you all right very good you guys got another thing is a fan that you want to throw out here RAF Josh anybody I'll go on the boat to train right now I just want to see all of the videos all the fan videos because US of G. productions is incredible with what they do for the website and on the video board and it's just I just want tribute videos every day like that and just like something that you can connect with the giants every day until the end of the season so that's where I'll start I have some others but all I'm just going off the boat to stuff okay tribute Josh we we've heard from you have a we have heard from RAF yet and what he wants to see is a fan rap is currently answering some phone dials very once again fantasy baseball and football by. apps job yeah that wraps doing a very good reps do his job but let's go over to pleasant in the gym and pleasant and nice to have ya gemmata AKB. hi there my forty are you doing we're doing great today glad to have you with us. yeah what I thought was well hope hope we get anything right the explosion and then went on today but that didn't happen. right like if they had they had their moment there but it got shut down by Martinez took care that they have the moment it look like that maybe a little bit of a fitting magic can belt got frozen on the slider and then let gory and they just blew him away. but I think I'd like to see in the lecture I guess when we got about four weeks left in the season is I'd like to be built on the bench I would like to see somebody work with posing on is heading I pulled out films of him from videos of two thousand and two thousand twelve. fixed wing span everything is nothing like he was now five six years ago so I don't know what's going on there and and then I got a question I mean you can act he started out.

I'm not sure as a streamer, I don't even know what I could define him as because I can't predict when I'm going to be able to use them velocity is down a little bit that came up in one of my early April reports when I was trying to do the velocity comparisons.

You just really don't know what you're gonna get so feel free take a flyer. But I don't I don't feel comfortable starting him. I mean, do you yet? No, not at all. But I thought the question needed to be asked. I think it's a very valid question. I it's a it's a great first step of twenty nine thousand nine hundred Rinaldo Lopez versus Zach eflin don't you have the exact Aplin, although he was good yesterday. But he wasn't good in previous outing. So I don't really know what to make him. But I'd say, you're right. I think it's eflin and national. Versus American League has a bit of a weight. There hunter Pence any interest at all homered knocked in four yesterday's hitting. He's doing well. And he is playing like really calendar was never gonna play. Like, if you if you were offering Willie Calhoun, and we can sign at that. But like, maybe he doesn't deserve. It not every prospect makes it in fact, like eight out of ten prospects. Don't become top hundred fantasy players is that fair like eight out of ten hitters that we think are top fantasy prospects. I'll bet people listening to say that's crazy to throw that number at it. But the truth is I think that a lot of the guys who do make it aren't in that prospect bucket in the first place. So you're probably right on if you take just like the top hundred prospects listed, the the rate of failure is extremely high. Calhoun? Let's get back to Pence. I've seen some interesting stuff from and I would be on board. If the league is deep enough in our game. No way. I just I don't think the role is firm enough for him Eric Sogard sitting well people routing him. That's probably mistake. I'd rather Stelle. Although I really wouldn't rather at either one right? Like, I would agree with that any other pitchers that are being added anybody that did anything yesterday. John means I guess we'll get to that. As we preview. Well, we compete with the week right now John means the to start started this week. I've ignored him. I did not bid anything on them. He's a Baltimore pitcher. That's all I need to know. But do you like John means he means anything to you, not really? But he did catch my eye for the to start matchups just because they are favorable enough. And he has pitched well enough means strength was good control in the minors. I really have nothing else for you to back him up. So if you're if you're rolling the dice because you need volume. Okay. I'd rather have Mike saroka this week. Oh, yeah. But he's he's long gone. He's not long. Grown. He's available and a lot of leaks. Thirty thirty percent. He's Rosser and thirty percent not available thirty who's the guy in the Braves who I put down roster. Let me look I wanna make sure I'm not wrong here. I could be wrong. I to that's why I remember one was one was at thirty. I remember sirocco Rosser and twenty two point seven percent. Oh, wow. That's a that's a slam dunk readily available. Yeah. I mean, the pitchers that are on the most added Liz means Caleb Smith, Luke Weaver, damigella, her mind, Frankie, montage sirocco, Mike minor. Wow. Did you see that Mike mine around? And do we have to start buying Mike minor this ridiculous? Yeah. We actually brought them under a couple of times on the show. I kept I kept saying no, it doesn't. I mean. He's a Texas. Rangers pitcher who doesn't have an elite strikeout rate. So I get it. But he's pitched very effectively for a year and a month..

"I just don't think it's going to last that long and Secondly those plate appearances unless he gets into the one sixty nine like Lamm got. A few years back or what was it one fifty six unless he gets that again. It's just not going to be that impactful. So I wouldn't worry about it. I mean, he hit two forty nine to forty eight in sixteen and seventeen. That's what you're paying for. And that was with the awful against lefties. You're trying to get twenty eight Chris ninety one thirty two eyeso- versus lefties bought. It would have been worse. I mean, Anna one hundred point better average OB. So he does take some walks. But anyway, see I'm still just drafting and I've been drafting Jake glam won't change price cheap that it. Yeah. I think one of the one of the things that this is. Kind of reinforces that he's healthy. Willing to play him every day. Good call. So he's he's he's healthy. He's back. They have confidence in them. They're gonna give him a shot to hitting and soft. He's even if they end up limiting him sometimes giving him their his quote unquote regularly scheduled days off when they're facing Kershaw or or another lefty. So the thing is like Arthur just a ton of lefties in the NFL west. I think there are like you have to give him a shot if he's gonna be, you know, one of the cornerstones of this on the lineup. Yeah. And I did a piece on that last year. I think I will do it again where I look at the projected rotations and see which has the most lefties writings breakdown, and maybe you can explain that or avoid certain guys depending on on that breakdown. Here's one Willie Calhoun going in the minors. He was beat out. Bye hunter pants. This is so. Like amazing to meet one because I've been big huge fans of both these guys and sounds like super cool for me, as you know, giants fan in hundred Pence fan to see his career continue at the made exact player. I'm actually happy for him. But at will aim time like my guy, dude, man, it's not his fault. I mean, isn't it though that he doesn't he hasn't done enough for them to say that you beat him out? It's like come on. He was it's not hundred Pence beating them out. They're just unwilling to play him defensively. And that's the problem. He's still on Cal. No, no. It's not. I mean like he's he he was willing ball. He's built like hydrant. He's not like, he, you know, he short stout and can't move laterally. Like they need to move out chew or move him out. Give him a chance. Like, I know like we had this discussion the friends vanish benefit staff. Chatting. And bunch of the guys are, you know, like, well, it's not like he's hit for power the over the last year because he's bored as all get out and jets. I mean, there is that element. I agree with. But I no I have no concerns about his skills. I don't think the Rangers. That's live concerns about his offense skills. He just can't play defense. And that's the problem. He was beat out because whether you like it or not the stats play into role here. I bet and hunter Pence pop three homers eight of sixteen heads for extra bases with ten ninety eight..
