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.”
Samardzija tells The Sports Virus about his “twist” delivery: … “you’ve got to use your whole body, your legs and your core. For me it’s just a way of generating a little bit more velocity with a little less exertion. It feels comfortable for me. As long as I’m nice and slow and calm in my lift and my turn and not ahead of myself it usually works out alright.”
Evans tells The Sports Virus about the chances of Tim Lincecum being back in a Giants uniform: … “We’ve kept an open door. For him, he’s got to really evaluate opportunities and situations out there that are afforded to him in terms of a role. He’s particularly interested in starting. For us, we really see it more in the bullpen. That said, we understand what his options will be and he’ll have to make a decision here soon I think.”
