John Shea From SF Chronicle, Part 2: Bobby Evans Optimistic, “There’s Plenty Of Time”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Our regular guest John Shea from the San Francisco Chronicle joins us to talk about his interview with Giants General Manager Bobby Evans in part 2 of our conversation.

Shea revealed to The Sports Virus what he learned from an interview with Bobby Evans on the recent road trip: “The answers basically came down to listen, it’s May, there’s plenty of time, we have core players in both the lineup and the rotation that got us multiple championships and the anticipation is these people who might have started slowly, their numbers are eventually going to hit their career norms and that will get them from an also-ran to a team that could get to .500 and then from there, who knows.”

John Shea From SF Chronicle: “Arroyo Is The Real Deal…Does All The Right Things”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

SF Chronicle Columnist John Shea is our guest. In part 1 of our conversation we chat about the Giants road trip including the Wednesday win over the Mets in New York.

 

Shea talked to The Sports Virus about Christian Arroyo’s game-winning three-run double in the 9th inning on Wednesday that beat the Mets: …“Arroyo is the real deal. Yeah his average is low (.242 after he went 2 for 5 in Wednesday’s game), but he always seems to get the right hit at the right time…He does things that help a team win. As his teammates said, the best compliment you can give him is he’s a ballplayer. He’s a smart, intelligent, wise man of 21 going on 28. He does all the right things on the field as if he’s been playing the game at this level for a long, long time.”

John Shea From SF Chronicle, Part 2: Bumgarner Timetable “A Guess At This Point”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

SF Chronicle Columnist John Shea is our guest. In part 2 of our conversation we chat about the Giants outfield situation, replacing Madison Bumgarner and the All Giants/Dodgers team.

Shea talked to The Sports Virus about Madison Bumgarner’s prognosis: …“This is all a guess that he’ll be ok after the All Star break. A month from now maybe his shoulder will be ok, but maybe his ribs won’t. Maybe his ribs are fine, but his shoulder is still bugging him and he’ll have to be pushed back. So, you can’t really rely on him for sure in mid-July if that’s the timetable because it’s really a guess at this point.”

John Shea From The SF Chronicle On A “Super Mom” And A Sensational Start For Arroyo

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

The Giants are in LA taking on the Dodgers and John Shea from the San Francisco Chronicle discusses the state of the team after game one of the series. In part 1 of a 2 part conversation we talk at length about newcomer Christian Arroyo who learned the game in a very unique way.

Shea explains to The Sports Virus how Christian Arroyo’s mother Kim Drummond taught him how to play baseball and how to hit: “…Christian said she went out and got a copy of the Ted Williams book – The Science of Hitting – and ‘read a page taught it to me, read another page, taught it to me.’ I said, who does that? He said, ‘well, my mom does.’ Super mom.”

Shea: Losing Madbum “Big Blow”…SF Issues Have “Given Us All The Signs That This Is Not The Year”

Shea talked to The Sports Virus about Madison Bumgarner’s injury: …“It’s real possible this guy could be lost ’till August and that’s a big blow for a team that is looking to get deep into the post season. It’s given us all the signs that this is not the year. How often can you say that in April? Pretty much never…This rotation took a hit, the team took a hit…The fans don’t know what to think. Are they bummed out because he’s missing time or are they bummed out because he did something to hurt the team that really shouldn’t be done during the baseball season? Do that in the off season. Don’t put your team in danger or at risk by putting yourself in danger or at risk.”

John Shea From SF Chronicle Says Matt Cain May Be “Able To Win & Get Outs With 88, 90, 91 MPH”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Our regular guest John Shea from the San Francisco Chronicle joins us to talk about Bruce Bochy, Matt Cain, the Giants bullpen and the left field situation in part 1 of our conversation.

Shea talked to The Sports Virus about Matt Cain’s hold on the #5 spot in the rotation: …“If they can find somebody better and Cain is struggling in May and June I’m sure they will. They’re not going to go on with his struggles forever. But, at the same time I think the last two starts by him have shown that maybe he is able to win and get outs with 88, 90, 91 miles per hour.”

We talk about the Giants offensive frustration with our regular guest SF Chronicle Columnist John Shea in part 2 of our conversation.

John Shea revised

 Shea tells The Sports Virus about anger on field:

… “They’re not handling it well because they’re not bouncing back from being in a hole. They’re not digging themselves out…(Eduardo) Nunez just rockets a ball to third base for the third out. So, he throws down his helmet. He kicks his helmet…(Buster) Posey threw a bat about 30 yards late in the game Sunday. He grounded sharply to shortstop, right at the guy and he just fired it towards the Giants dugout. The frustration angle is hitting everybody on this team.”
