"Ready for the Rockies and the Giants in the home opener over at Oracle Park. Let's hit the lumber and that is sponsored by a golden state When you succeed, we succeed visitors today at Golden State lumber dot com. Well, let's keep the lumber going last year, of course. The oral part played absolutely great for hitters, and you can't say that very often in the history of this ballpark. 11 home runs so far, of course, all on the road in Seattle in San Diego, 11 home runs tied for fourth. In all of baseball. So keep that going, as John Miller told you a few minutes ago. One thing Evan Longoria is out today had a reaction to the vaccine. He's hitting 3 18 with three home runs, so hopefully he could be in there. Maybe he could do some late game hitting if they needed a pinch hitter, But he will not start today. So that's one piece of lumber that is out of the lineup. Some guys who have been very, very good. Donovan Solano, who had the game winning sacrifice fly last time out against San Diego. He's sitting for a nine and Buster Posey back in the ball park in front of fans for the first time since September, 29th of 2019 so he will get a huge ovation. In the home opener today. Buster Posey as two home runs in four games, and hopefully he can get things going and he can hit the lumber pretty hard. Some guys who need to get going of Brandon Crawford's in the line up against the lefty. Today. He's too of 18 Mike. Extreme Ski is just three for 22 Alex Dickerson, just one for 12 and Austin Slater's leading off today. Four for 23, So some of those bats need to get going. They've had some good ones. So far, they are hitting the long ball and that is hitting the lumber sponsored by Golden State lumber. When we six when you succeed, we succeed visitors today at Golden State Lumber calm right, Let's go places now. With the Toyota out of town scoreboard. There is one game in action right now. Yankees, doubling up the Rays in the battle of a least match up 4 to 2 clubber, by the way, Cory Clubber starting in that game course he signed with the Yankees in the off season. So you've got that one going on. Do not turn on your sets. If you want to see a ring ceremony that's gonna happen in the home opener for the Dodgers today. The nationals visiting the Dodgers. Joe Ross versus Walker Bueller. So make sure that you don't accidentally stumble upon that when the days of the Astros later on tonight, as well. Angels and the Blue Jays, Tigers and Indians Phillies taken on the Braves. That should be a good one. Former giant Zack Wheeler is pitching in that one. The Padres and the Rangers, of course, an interleague matchup in that one and the Reds and the Diamondbacks in that game, and that is Your Toyota out of town Scoreboard As far as the lineups are concerned, I told you some of the guys they're going to be out for the for the Giants today, Austin Slater is going to lead off the whole thing. So again, Brandon Crawford and line up against the lefty is well, Buster Posey back in there, and he's hitting In the six spot those of your diamond, let's get you ready for the home opener.

"I don't think that they're quite what we anticipated. But I think we're finally at that homes like toward the homestretch who we're going to see what they're able able to offer. Especially so I think the Giants where there is surprise you, but it's not a very no offense, intimidating lineup, but I I really excited to see That Cueto and and Monta matchup only because I'm excited to see you know, like it's a tough lot match up to go up against any of the header site, But I thought I might see what Cueto Khun do against them. Yeah, yeah, not an intimidating Lina put an annoying one. Yeah. Wait, No, we don't know It's weird. What's worse at the end of the day Go giants and a cz. I wonder if you feel this. This probably brought about. I know it did for me as someone who pulls for the Giants like It brought about some of the painful memories of the last Siri's, and I wondered if you know, you realize like if the ayes had just calm down and even maybe give the Giants one of those games where they had a huge lead in the ninth inning, the eyes would still win their division. Nothing would change. But that would have been so huge for the Giants. If you look at the way it's playing out right now. Okay. There are two groups of people. You never tell to calm down, Willard and that women and the eyes, right? No, don't just I would totally. I would totally do it to the A's more than women. So I do know 100% right? Way, way Less scared of the days that I am off all women, Okay, even close. That's not an easy call right there. Right, So I really enjoy it Only because the mark Canada Bay Area guy and watch and hit that at Oracle Park of a place that he grew up and just to watch it happen. That to me was special, so the fact that he didn't want to calm down and those aspects is really cool and every time studies on the field at the same thing, though, can it said it was a memorable homeruns he's ever had. And first one of the ones before that, I think was another Bay Bridge. Siri's battle the Bay and so that stuff I absolutely love. I just love when those two teams go up against each other because I mean, I'm a huge Oracle Park fan. I wish I could cover every single game there. So there's there would be no coming, Dad. But I I appreciate where you're coming from. But I mean, as an athlete, you're going to tell them to cause down. Just relax. Like yes, Calm down. You tell you tell Fernando talkies. Junior that Teo, you're at all like my gosh. He clearly needs to calm down and get to hit almost every time it comes up. Except for the last week, he can't get any Yeah, but is he as he's calm down? He's come down, but I would never say that to you, Jessica. In fact, speaking of that tone, I'd like to read you a tweet that I just got about a half hour now and let you respond to it. This this tweet I just got the Giants are in the middle of a huge playoff push and always Dickensian should not abandon his teammates to go take games off for his wife. Hey, Maybe this is not a real tweet right now. It's not. Yes, it is. Because I don't know if the person is being stupid or serious, or I don't know somewhere in between. I don't know. But, yeah, No, I'm reading. I'm reading actual words that are on the Internet right now. So it's either is somebody being a big troll, which like? Well, you've seen my mentioned like, Yeah. Trust me. I bet you if you ask Dickerson, if he could give birth to the child himself, he would happily do it. He would happily do it, but no I'm just I'm just going to respond to that tweet. No period, then tweets that bell. Perfect. Okay, believe there are actually people I'm going to just just so I could sleep tonight. We're going to pretend that that was not actual tweet that all right? Yeah, no faith. It's totally thick and no one. No one wants you to calm down. Please, just keep being you. And I can't wait to have you on the broadcasters path Zoom next week and Jessica Oh, my gosh, I cannot help. I cannot wait to help you shape the lives of wonderful people. A man like it is anybody just listen to this conversation? I know. They're like those two people should shaped the lives of human futures. Yeah. Yeah, said they would be like, you know, they seem like wholesome, educated human beings bid for that, Jessica have a good night and thank you so much. It's not a problem. Thanks, Mark. There should go. She's the great Jessica Kleinschmidt, NBC Sports Bay Area. Keep it, Pino. Keep it. Red Blend. Those are my two calls as well. Rosa. Not all day. Do not tell her to calm down, okay?

"But, you know, I think also we talked so much about the process and make such stars out of The front office or management, but you know, it's it's It's about the players always and what the players do to make themselves better. And so, you know, maybe that's a good place to start is true. Finally, and you just leave it at this After tonight, really interesting road trip for in San Diego hugely interesting. I'll even throw in two in Seattle. I mean, Mariners gave him everything that could handle last night and they go again tonight. And then three in Oakland s O. That's what three cities. I mean, if you count Oakland is a road trip, but that's nine games away from Homer Happy Oracle Park. To you. What's the like? How anticipating? How much are you anticipating this roadie? And is this, you know? Kind of the test of the season. Really? I mean, yeah, There's there's really no break in the schedule The rest of the way it is still, you know, not necessarily. I mean, again. Their schedules been tough all the way through. It really helped that they took eight of 10 from the Diamondback state. They they got a team when they were down that they'd just stripped down a few parts. You know, they had to face Baumgartner. Obviously, there was not going to be at his best coming off the injured list and they got they got what they needed to get down. It took three or four there. You know this this Mariner steam that ended with a six game winning streak. They know not to minimize them. But they did get those wins against the Rangers and Angels, who are pretty bad baseball teams this year s o. I think those games are ones that the Giants are gonna have to try to seize as well and then we know how good the Padres of them. They've got seven games left against them, and we know they've got four games left against the Rockies, and they're all at home. In the Rockies air hitting about to 10 on the road this year, so that could be very advantageous. But you know, they've gotta finish ahead of Colorado. I think and finishing third place in the NL West and then I'm pretty, but I think we're pretty certain that the third place team in the West should Be one of those two playoff teams and and and one thing that's going to be a big for them as they look down the road for that Rocky Siri's and starts on the 21st is the first tiebreaker is season serious because, you know, no tie breakers are going to be played out on the field, and you know there's going to be some tiebreakers that are going Determine playoff position or who gets in and the first tiebreaker between the Giants and Rocky's right now again, head to head record, The Chinese would have to win three out of four from Colorado to tie this season. Siri's and then the next tiebreaker would be record with the division and the Giants should should Being in good position to take that one. So ah, really? That serious to me Looms is the most important one of all that they have left. Great Chatman really interesting baseball in September. It's all we can ask for in this crazy season, so We'll continue reading you in the athletic Andy and check in with you on can be our thanks for the time, man. Sounds good. Tell milk.

"Start out at Oracle Park today for the Giants of the dime bags who played a surprisingly close Siri's here. I don't know about you when I watched these two teams, and the results have shown this throughout the year. So far, the Giants are way better than the time and backs especially when you look at it this week, and the Diamondbacks actually sent some of their best players out. A tea at the trade deadline. They went into sale Mo. They were one of the very few teams Who did decide to do that, And so, therefore I think it's important. The Giants. You know it's baseball. You're going to lose one here or there, but I think if if my memory is on point here today, it isn't always there. But when it is Six and two, I think is the Giants record against the D backs so far this year and one of the losses being that game Friday night, which, as I was just mentioning, certainly felt like the Giants. Should have won this one. They'll go against lefty Alex Young today for the D'backs, another lefty. We talked a moment ago about how the Giants How about a lot of success together? Sanders to and you're also watching Gabe Kapler start to do some things that they weren't necessarily doing at the beginning of the year, and I want to talk about that for a second. You're watching Brandon Belt being the lineup against Madison, Bumgarner and Donovan Solano is not OK. Well, so why wasn't floors at first in Solano? Its second or something like that? You're watching Alex Dickerson get a lot of it bats this week. Because his hot and he's taking advantage of those situations. He's had some good games. Against lefties use. Stransky has always been someone who they've liked his splits against righties and lefties, so they're willing to go ahead and put him out there. It'll be interesting to see what they do now that Austen Slater is back. I'm sure he's on DH. I haven't even looked at the lineup yet today but against the lefty, I'm sure he's in there again. And and But will he get some at bats against right handers? He was starting Tio before he got hurt. So what? I'm watching this staff D'oh. And over the first three weeks, they took a lot of lumps from fans. And and in some cases, deservedly so. There were pitching moves that that we're head scratchers. There was Kappler trying to make a pitching change when he couldn't The lineup sometimes would be frustrating. You could make the case He's stuck with Pence one too many times. Could you make that case about Pablo Sandoval now? It just didn't feel like someone being hot would earn them a trip into the lineup. Instead, it sort of just felt like We're going to go by the rules that we've set. What? I actually think that Wass I I think that the Giants like many teams, but especially the Giants, a lot of new players and new staff, a new regime a 60 game season, all kinds of new protocols. There was a really half T feeling out period. For the staff to know who should go where and when. And I don't even think it's complete yet. Hell you're noticing now save situation in the ninth inning. Who do they go to? Hell? You have no idea. Is it code Rod? He had a shot last week. It went well. But then things have been bumpy since Sam Selman is starting to have that look. Although I still think they like him, maybe more situationally. Don't forget. Selman was the closer in Sacramento all year last year and was lights out. And then there's Tony Watson, who closed the game last night. That's old, reliable. That's your veteran presence. I think there's some some comfort there. They're nowhere near ready to go back Tio Trevor Gott. Specially with him giving up another homerun in yesterday's game, So the ball pen movement is still something that Kappler Is is playing with, however, the lineup. I feel like they've now got a beat on it. They have now got it figured out. A little bit better. Who could do what? What's the right moment for the right guy? I know there's some frustration about defense of replacements. How early do we go to that? Some people looked at that and Colorado Wednesday. Should Wilmer Flores still have been at first base in the sixth inning? I kind of thought sixth innings a little early for a defense of replacement. However, you could make the case. Colorado had an all right handed bullpen. So why not just put belt in there anyway? Because it's not like his bat has been a problem. Quite the opposite. He's been amazing. But Florence has been good to do You want to take him out and I get all these This debate and and that's the same debate that they're having. So not all of these questions have unease, e answer, But aren't you starting to feel Like there. They've got a bead on what's supposed to happen with the lineup. They've been making better decisions. They're the team looks more confident the errors are going away. The shouting numbers air there and you're seeing it in the standings. I mean, I know as a fan you looking and you go or still in 19 and 21. Well, they were eight and 16. They were eight and 16. So if you're going to cut this season up into thirds, approximately, you want to take this middle Third, the giant have been a very good baseball team. Very good baseball team, and they're starting rotation came into form as well. Remember, at the beginning of the year? Nobody knew what was going on there. Do you remember that? It feels like a long time ago. You remember the first three weeks for like, Who's starting? I don't know. Actually, we do know, but we're not telling you what you're gonna tell us seven minutes before first pitch. And then at a certain point you could get to where you could guess. Yeah, I think they're Smiley's. Don't throw them up. Yeah, and he did. And then they had a couple injuries. Smiley goes down. Shark goes down. Cahill comes into the fold. And you've had some moments where guys have been allowed to throw 100 pitches. Tyler Anderson had the complete game. Logan Web out along one. Cueto has had a couple of long ones. And it got into a flow Now there are some questions still out there. Cahill came into last night. Start with the hip issue. They felt like he was okay. Hey, did not go very far into the game. Drew Smyly looms when he returns. Who goes out when he comes in Tyler Anderson starting to struggle a little bit. Shark is still out there as the big unknown. Um I heard a discussion yesterday about Whether or not the Giants would want to entertain resigning shark next year And as I was driving around listening to it, I was like, Oh, no, not like that is a hard pass. That's a hard no. And I love shark. I've always loved the way he plays sports. I remember watching him as a wide receiver at Notre Dame. I've loved the way he talks to other people, and he's a thoughtful person. I do not think He is a smart, analytic signing after this year. For a baseball team. I just don't I think you're watching the MPH fall off. You're watching the movement fall off. There are a lot of home runs. I don't think so. But that brings me to a point about Johnny Cueto, who is in the giant's rotation next year. I'm gonna let that question. Sit there for a second, so you could think about it, who is in the giant's rotation? Next year. And did we get a clue in trying to answer that question is too why Johnny Cueto didn't get dealt. I still get texts and tweets and everything on a daily basis should have traded Cueto. Should've traded Guardsmen should have done this and that And we say that without knowing Anything about what was or wasn't offered. We don't know the Giants willingness to deal Cueto. We have no idea what was offered..

"Now more cap with the skipper of the Giants before the Giants and Dodgers play to here at Oracle Park and the Dodgers coming in with the best record in the majors. The Giants a hot team, though, and that game on Tuesday night, the memories of that kind of stayed with you through The night and through the next day, because there was so many exciting and dramatic things that happened in that game. One of the things that stuck out to me the Jazz came from behind four different times in the same game. The Dodgers had three blown saves in the same game. All of these have to be a point of pride for the Giants and the Giants offense in particular. Yeah, and I think our our team has shown that they're toss there. They're not going to be Defeated early in the game, and oftentimes you see that with teams where they go down three or four runs early in the game, and you just can't They can't battle back. And so our team has continually showed that you have that fight in them. And that's from game to game. But it's also in game and I think that's what happened in the game. That your your references and it was a game where Joey Bard after all, of the great things that had happened with him, and that he had accomplished in his first few games All of a sudden, he kind of looked like a rookie back there. He had various problems behind the plate. He had some moments with the the pictures in terms of Ah, not being together with what they wanted and what he was calling for. How would you assess his game on Tuesday night was a tough game. And I think it's good when you can just kind of bring lights of the fact that you have Ah, very, very young and experience Catcher. Who is learning a lot and learning it all on the fly. So we prepared him as much as as we could while he was in the alternate site, Sacramento But that doesn't really get you ready for Getting kind of punched in the mouth at the major league level with everything on the line. So thankfully, we got through a tough game for Joey Barton, where he struggled in a couple of different areas. We won the baseball game and we were able to just chalk it up as a great developmental experience and one that I think will make him better knowing the Giants and the Dodgers are going to play 2 to 7 inning games here at Oracle Park, and that's the gate Capital Show for today.

P. people's interest and get out there and support you're fighting a lot of little be fun three one two five nine one eighty nine hundred if you got a prediction on the red box bowl again as the fighting Illini face the California golden bears or you know any of the any of the bowl games still yet to come in fact one E. is under way it is the peach bowl chick fillet people that is between the top rank LSU Tigers and the fourth ranked Oklahoma Sooners and I think Justin said he pretty made a bold prediction he said that Ellis you wearing fifty up on the Sooners I think this game at least is the way it's playing out right now is going to be a little bit closer than predicted Ellis you just scored it's still in the first quarter you're about ready to go up fourteen seven on the Sooners the but the big one tonight in in our minds Susan second ranked Ohio state at thirteen and no big ten this year taking on three Clemson that's going to be a that's gonna be a big match up it's going to be big and like you said a lot of these these games today really too close to call our I I don't even think he the experts know exactly who's gonna win who's gonna who's gonna make it yeah I I just don't you know the so called the so called experts they didn't really do much by Illinois this year with some other point spreads and how they kind of I guess disrespected them I would like to say well Shalom right exactly so yeah again the marquee matchup is going to be is is going to be huge and it just kind of a little bit of a history of claims and and Ohio state the Ohio state they've got they've got a little bit on the line here not just the fact that they want to win and go on to the national championship but the last time they faced constant was back in two thousand sixteen it was new year's eve out in Glendale Arizona Clemson crush them thirty one to nothing in urban Meyer said after the game not only do we embarrass ourselves in Paris the whole state of Ohio well our you got that right yeah and this is one of their first appearances in this poll are college football playoff to have their own my time I'm talking about Oklahoma part yeah I know that's okay yeah no we're do where does did send stuff to keep track of these days but look that's gonna be a good game of the one that's going on right now is Ellis you and Oklahoma hi you know it's just in these teams are so evenly matched we talked about it earlier I don't think it's you know overstating its when you say that I really like the top four teams this year and as they kinda you know get get themselves into that national championship of formation I think it's some we want to go with I think it'll be Ellis you're not really going out on a limb here because they're also even the match I think it'll be

"Are the Piccolo 's the rob Piccolo z-. You know, what's funny is I was just exchanging. Voicemails with Kevin Franson there. He is. He's I believe he's in Colorado. I believe the Phillies are in Colorado. That's where he is. We've got a great guest list for you today. To offset me, Marcus. Thompson is gonna join us from LA at about three fifteen makes you stay tuned for that. Obviously. We'll talk about eighty-five points. Give it up sang in half and seventy two thirty seven and Kevin Durant. Eight shots and nine turnovers, and blah, blah, blah, all that stuff. We're gonna dot conversation. Also three thirty in studio. Eric Byrnes is gonna join us burns as always awesome. I would tell you what we're going to talk about. But burns knows this. If he's listening. We could go on tangent. I used to do an hour long baseball show with with Virgil weekly. And we'd say here's what we're gonna talk about how this team and that team and this and that and then we'd go on tangent. We didn't talk about any of that stuff. So I'm not sure I do know that we're gonna be talking about his speed golf challenge for the let them play foundation. Which is he's trying to set the record which is over four hundred holes of golf. I believe I think it's four one four three something that neighborhood watch the videos and he's been warming up in Half Moon bay. And watching burns e so there's no doubt my mind that he's going to break that record. But anyway, he's doing that for the let them play foundation remember year ago? He did the the run swim bike across the country. I don't know when that that documentaries coming out. But anyway, I did see clips from its sole talk about that. We'll get into some baseball, obviously with the potential of oracle park being expanded in what happened with Tim Anderson. The White Sox and the. Royals and all those kind of by the way that wasn't even that wasn't a bat flip that was a bat. Javelin? It was about throw that wasn't a like baffled wouldn't a bath live anyway. We'll get into that. With burns eat about three thirty. And then I wanted to make sure I promoted this Jimmy outfield's gonna join us as he does every week four to five tomorrow. We have short shows really Jeremy in here early from the Scud ranch. But what we're gonna do is since we have them for an hour. And we'll talk about kangaroos and goats, and we'll even get some baseball in there. And then he's kind of like burns. I'm not sure where everything's gonna go. I know he's he's posted a bunch of stuff where he's in a boxing gym. And I just wanna know if he's planning on boxing, the kangaroo or something like that. So we'll get into that conversation. But if you have a question for Jeremy, and that's the great thing about Jeremy is we can talk about anything. It could be baseball related. Kangaroo related. It could be Scud ranch related could be pretty much anything related because we talk about everything with them. On Twitter at candy are and use hashtag Scuds suds S C U D S Scuds suds because that's the name of the show Scuds and suds for an hour. Usually every Friday we're going to do it from four to five today. So you can start bringing the questions now again at Camby are use hashtag Scuds suds in the last segment of the show today between four and five will get say five questions together, and we'll get them to Jeremy. So at can our use hashtag Scuds and asked germy anything anything at all. So we'll do that in the last segment of his show between four and five. So maybe four forty four forty five. And then you may have missed some interviews that we did over on ten fifty and we are contractually obligated to play them over here. But the thing is is that they're really good. So we wanted to play them. Anyway. So far Hans Zaidi's gonna join us at five o'clock a lot of conversation about the. Discussion of changing the dimensions. Specifically triples alley at oracle parks. We will we did discuss that at length. And I think you'll find that fascinating at five Steve Kerr at five thirty a lot of the discussion obviously was gained two and Kevin Durant and Patrick Beverley and giving up eighty five in the second half. And there's a great I think Luke Walton cut in there about how difficult or easy. It is to coach the worst. I played that for Stephen he responded. Plus, he did not know the story of Doc Rivers dropping the two thousand dollars on the sidewalk and San Francisco and have it return having it returned to him. And so we discussed that. And I asked him how much he had in his pocket at that particular time because look Doc Rivers has quite a bit of money. I'd imagine that Steve Kerr has quite a bit of money. I'm I'm of the belief that matter how much money you have Floyd Mayweather because I think Floyd Mayweather goes all cash, but most people don't carry cash. It's a debit card credit card society affect it's kinda discouraged even have cash flying. They don't want your cash, they won't take your cash if you wanna get boozed up like I do on a flight, then you have to use a credit card. This is what they do. So it is a debit card credit card society. So I was just curious. So we got into that conversation. Five thirty for Steve Kerr, Brent Musburger, six fifteen to talk numbers and six thirty. So we got a bunch of good stuff. So again, Marcus coming up three fifteen burns e in studio at three thirty four to five Scuds and suds with Jeremy five o'clock far Han five thirty Kerr, six fifteen Brent Musburger. So a full show. A lot of good stuff. Obviously. We'll get into the warriors today after we get with the with the guests, obviously, we'll do it with Marcus at three fifteen. But if you things that I wrote down in regards to discussions about the warriors today, I wanna get into that. I wanna play that cut before five thirty Luke on the job that Steve does with the words, which I think is really. Interesting, obviously, the story of the bat javelin, the Tim Anderson three yesterday for the White Sox we've discussed this over and over and over and over I think the new angle on it. To not just make it a story to kill time. And there's actually a new discussion point on this whole thing, which is. They made that spot let them play and let the kids play. It'll be interested to ask burns this to three thirty is is that what that is. Just let the kids play javelin throw the bat, whatever you want or as you heard. I was watching the MLB network this morning and marked Orosa was saying that there's a certain respect level of the game did not show up your opponent. I think burns he'll probably along those lines two. So it's kind of in between between let the kids play. In other words, you're entertaining. The fans, I don't think you're entertaining. The fans when you javelin the bat to your dugout in Kansas City, Chicago White Sox game in which there's hardly anyone in the stands on Wednesday afternoon. I understand pure emotion. So you hit a home run in the playoffs. You hit a home run in the World Series. Or at a critical time even in a regular season game ninth inning walk off tie the game in the ninth. Even it's like, I get it. And we are there is this whole let the kids play thing in baseball. There is more and more acceptance in showing personality in showing zoo Brinson all those kind of things, and I think that's great. I look I may just across the board. Just kind of expand this out a little bit. I'm a big proponent of having fun. You make you have a great dunk. How fun show motion us score a touchdown. I want you to do a dance. You have a big sack. I want you to play it up. You hit a a law? Look, I have no problem with you at Meiring a bomb into the night. No problem at the plate. But I think there are lines to everything. So anyway burns you'll know better than I will. But we get into that discussion as well. Employs. I was looking at some of the tweets it was just it was interesting to see some of the players some of the pitchers actually defending backflip some of the hitters saying that they're they're Bush league act like you've done it before. So I'll read some of those as well, I think those are interesting so beyond the warriors. You got that story going on? You don't have to do to at some point. We have to play the Kevin Durant. Sound the I'm Kevin Durant? Which by the way, had no problem with that certain people if they say, basically, don't, you know, who I am which Durant did yesterday, you go shut up with Durant? He's earned it. And not only was that poor cool. There was a couple of minutes where he. Ciphered the defense of what the clippers were doing against him. And that was really good too. So we'll play that. I think we played a lot of the audio yesterday could do that as well. And bunch of other stuff we can do as well. By the way, lots of good six thirty special type things today that will try to slide in, but we have so many guests. We're not sure how much of that we can get in. So that's what we got going on Marcus is gonna join us coming up next. He's in LA clippers warriors game number three. And we'll start talking about it next on the here. On these words. In the meantime, here is your latest..

I've I haven't had a chance to read the entire things at just dropped a couple of minutes ago. And we were busy talking to Baron Davis. Jim Foley from Wells Fargo, but just a couple of things for you one right out of the gate. They ask BUSTER Posey is oracle park fair. And BUSTER Posey said, no. And then he said can you elaborate and BUSTER said simple question. Simple answer. Brandon belt goes on to say, it depends on what your definition of fair is I'm going Bill Clinton on you. But seriously, if you think it's fair that we should be able to hit twenty to thirty more home runs if we played in another park then. Yeah, it's unfair. But it's not unfair in the respect that there's a lot of outfield out there, and you can get a lot of hits. If you hit the ball two right angles and stuff like that. You can get a lot of extra base hits. But yeah, you're not going to get the home. Runs. You think you might get in another place. So it's fair and unfair in that respect stats that Bagley. Drags.

Well, right now, we're on schedule. So that's good news. You know, we did not take batting practice on the field had to keep it tarp because of the rain, but they think we'll be fine start on time. So that's the plan. And that's how we have the guys geared up for all right now. You're starting pitcher today is Derek Rodriguez. And it's always it's an honor to pitch as the starter on on an opening day. But it also is something that quite often will be a guy with a lot of experience because there's so many destroy. Actions zone surrounding a home opener like this. But Derek Rodriguez. He's not an ordinary young guy. Because this this is the start of what would be his first full year in the big leagues. Right. And you know, we're Derek just the fact that he's been around a game so long with this his dad Pudge Rodriguez. The he's he seen everything he's comfortable in a major league clubhouse. He showed that last year when he came up. So I don't like anything can distract this guy. And he has great pocus. And but you know, what John along that line? We'll talk to the players briefly about, hey, let's keep her focused because there is a lot going on opening day. A lot of demands on the guy's tickets things like that. But also the ceremonies in the you know, you have to get ready to play the game. So I will remind them about that. So you'll have a team meeting before the squad game. Yeah. Well, I'm going to give it they hitters and and talk to them because they're they're the ones getting revved up and everything. And then, you know, we're we're going to acknowledge him people. So I just wanna make sure we do keep our focus. All right. It's opening day at oracle park the giants and the raise more. Coachee right after this. San Francisco fans in the no, no some of the shortest lines for drug behind the center field wall. And they should always bring a coat to the games just in case and your local AllState agents.
"oracle park" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Welcome back here to oracle park. It's effort Cisco where spring training has come to an end and a wet and tarp is on the field. The rest of this game called the final score six full innings the as change for the two days plumbing. John Miller back with you for just a final few moments. And now we can start the countdown to opening day in San Diego giants and all of us will travel down tomorrow to get ready for opening day at Petco park on Thursday afternoon as we sign off here tonight. John, I don't know if you have any final thoughts from this spring camp as a whole I think the giants were believing that the number one thing that happened for this team was that they came out of spring training so relatively healthy. Now. Hopefully that MAC Williamson news will be good news at the end of this game. He right at the end of this game. Got. Hit by pitch and his right hand. So hopefully that is good news. But overall, maybe that's the number one takeaway from the giants in such stark contrast to last year and even a year prior the giants have a full complement of healthy players as they began the season. Well for most of the spring, the news was especially good surrounding the pitching staff people stayed healthy. And there was a question about. Jessica Marga coming back from an injury plagued year. The first time we saw him. He was regularly lighting up the radar gun anywhere from ninety ninety two to ninety five miles an hour. And however that is not what we saw from him tonight tonight. The fastballs were generally ninety ninety one miles an hour. And he also was not very sharp. So whether it was just. You know, maybe a lack of focus because it's just a tune-up getting ready for the real deal. Or if that's an issue if the stuff is is not yet there, but we'll find out soon enough when he makes his first start perhaps in San Diego this weekend. Maybe it's early as Sunday. But anyway. Otherwise, I think the giants should've felt like pitching staff looks to be a real source of strength for this team this year, which the the good giants teams. That's always been the case. And they also did not hit the ball real. Well, but BUSTER Posey, no ill-effects after the surgery to repair his hip and. And so that was all good news and for the giants infield, especially belt. Looking better. And then he then he looked in terms of just his physique. Looks to be in great shape and perfectly healthy, Joe panic took off weight and Joe panic also. With those agility drills covering more ground, reminding us of his gold glove seasons. And Brandon Crawford who admitted that he was hurting had some injury problems that plagued him the second half of last year. He looked excellent and longoria throwing the ball better than I really at any time last year at third base looking great as well. So and Stephen Doug, I think did everything that they had hoped they th that he would do it as a in center field. So he looks ready to go to the question is about the core the corner outfielders, where's the power gonna come from? And and so that's. Remains to be seen. Because nobody really stepped forward. I think they were. There was hope that MAC Williamson go do this spring when he did last spring. With his his new approach and whatnot. Before the concussion waylaid his season. But we never saw that MAC William shin- really at anytime. He at one home run over in Maryvale one day over the centerfield wall. And that was it. So and he had more plate appearances than anybody else. So. So we'll we'll see there. But the giants have thirty players remaining they have to make five cutch before they get ready for the opener in San Diego. And it it could be five position players or four position players in one pitcher depends on whether they'll go with twelve pitchers or thirteen and that's those are the decisions that they'll have to make. And are there other new faces that might come into the fold? Four hundred eighty he's been very very busy with the people being placed on waivers and and designated for assignment and whatnot is teams have been paring down their rosters for the past several days. So anyway. If your four hundred ninety. This is an action filled time is as the chance get ready to to put their twenty five man roster out there could be a late night in giants front office. It's possible. Indeed. There could be conversations happening as we speak. So we'll find out a lot. I would think in the next twenty four hours. And then we kick it off in San Diego. Indeed. And along those lines. As we are getting ready to sign it off. Mark Melanson who would have pitched in ending tonight. Now the game has been knocked called off after six innings. He has gone out warmed up in the outfield. And now he's in the bullpen with Kurt young the pitching coach. And and he's going to throw a bullpen session out there to get his work in and and even from Milan the veteran who is brought it here to be the giants closure and experience closer and a good one. But he's had two Shays Israeli that were short-circuited by injury. And. Even he would not be guaranteed a job. He's got a guaranteed contract. But so for him. I think this is kind of a disappointment not to get in to this ball game tonight. But so he'll get his working out of the bullpen. A wet bullpen mound at that. But he's out there doing it. And and he'll get that work in and head back into the clubhouse where the rest of the giants are packing up their stuff and getting ready to travel tomorrow to San Diego, spring training two thousand nineteen is over interrupted in the end by rain. We don't finish the final three innings the as Windass game by the final score afford to. We will take our final break here in spring training and comeback wrap it up after this. Does the government say you owe taxes, maybe you do? And maybe you don't for variety reasons. I'm tax attorney Steve Moskowitz, and we have over thirty years of tax experience right here in San Francisco, if you haven't filed a tax return or file the returning correctly or the government disagrees with a tax return. You did file you have rights, for instance. The government often makes up a punishment tax return, which can be much more than you really all at Moskowitz LLP, we devise a strategy. That's right for you. Is it too late for the government to collect? Because the statue limitations has run. Do you qualify for an offering compromise where you pay only part of what you will was it. Your ex spouse that caused the problem can we contest the penalties. If you do, oh or monthly payments available understand this the government agent. Does not have the final say..

"So let's go back out. Oracle park for an update. Dave Flemming back with you live here from oracle park where we do have a little bit of news. At least the tarp is coming off the field. They are finishing rolling it up. The rain has stopped the field actually looks great. There's still a little bit of standing water on the warning tracks around the outfield and also some putting in shallow left field where they dumped the water that had accumulated on top of the tarp before they got rid of the tarp entirely. But anyway, that's all good news. If you're joining us here late we are scheduled to have an exhibition game for you tonight. The second to last of the twenty one thousand nine exhibition schedule giants and the aids a traditional bay bridge series giants here in San Francisco after being Oakland yesterday for two games in a row tonight and tomorrow night, and we are in a rain delay. We were hoping to start around six forty five. So it's already been a significant delay. It's gonna take a little longer for us. And we still haven't gotten an estimated start time, but you can. Figure that sometime close to the top of the hour, and perhaps a little bit beyond that. But that that would be a rough estimate based on where they are now in terms of getting field ready to players haven't emerged from the dugouts to start to warm up. When that happens, we will have an even more concrete idea of when this game's going to start at perhaps a giants will give us a start time here sooner rather than later. Sean Anderson against Liam Hendriks hats are scheduled pitching batch up. Lots of giants regulars hoping to play and for some of them perhaps their final tuneup before the regular season starts on Thursday in San Diego. So that's our update from here for now, we will come back at seven forty five local time, and by then I would imagine that we would have a a first pitch time for you. But we'll take a break again and go back into rain delay mode. Hopefully, optimistically rain delay mode is ending now. And we are getting closer to the. Part of a game giants NEA's here from oracle park in downtown. San Francisco a ballgame for you coming up as soon as the weather gets outta here. And hopefully that means sooner rather than later on our candy yard giants radio network. Dave good staff. So we'll check in again out of the ballpark here in exactly thirteen minutes. Seven forty five. We'll get an update on what's.
