Flannery: “Gotta Have (Energy Players)” Arenado: “I Can’t Wait To Get To The Ballpark”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Tim Flannery, the former Giants 3B coach and current analyst for NBC Sports Bay Area and MLB Network joined us on Tuesday night to talk about the Giants season. We also hear SF manager Bruce Bochy’s thoughts on a record-breaking season for homers overall in  MLB and chat with Rockies All-Star 3B Nolan Arenado.

Flannery told The Sports Virus about the importance of having energetic players on the roster: …“You gotta have it. Now if you have a superstar like a Nolan Arenado and he has that type of energy you’ve got a super, superstar who plays with an edge. Nolan is the nicest guy in the world off the field, but on the field he is just obsessed to do well and to play hard and to compete and to win…You look at the clubs we had winning here in San Francisco we had those types of misfits, whatever you want to call them. They might get kicked out of a restaurant once in awhile, but you know what, you’re gonna want them in your lineup every night.”

Arenado chatted with The Sports Virus about his September attitude last season compared to this season: …“It’s fun to come to the ballpark every day. I wake up in the morning and I can’t wait to go to the ballpark in the last 12 games. Last year I was like, I can’t wait to go to the beach and get this off season going. When you lose it’s just not fun baseball. Now we have a chance to do something special.”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Giants Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Our special guests from AT&T Park in San Francisco are  Former Giants All Star shortstop Rich Aurilia and Rockies All Star third baseman Nolan Arenado.

RICHAURILIA

 Aurilia talked to The Sports Virus about Brandon Crawford having an All Star season, but not being named to the National League team today:

… “We  get spoiled watching that guy play every day. A lot is being made of his offense the last two years and that’s not even the best part of his game. The defense is fun to watch. I think he has fun playing defense. He has a lot more All Star games ahead of him. So, if this doesn’t happen for him (could get added if there is an injury), good for him, he goes to get three or four days rest somewhere.”

ARENADOFEATURED

 Arenado also talked to The Sports Virus about the NL All Star roster, which includes him as a reserve:

… “It’s an honor just to be a part of it. Obviously you would like to start, but at the same time that’s the last thing that’s on my mind. I’m just happy I’m going. I know my parents are happy so that’s nice. It’s a big deal. If you had told me I’d be a ball boy at the All Star game I’d be just as happy.”
