SF CF Denard Span Says Eventual “Full Strength” Giants Will Gain Confidence

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Giants CF Denard Span is our guest, explaining how the club is trying to get out of its first half funk. We also talk about his role as the leadoff hitter and even get his thoughts on the NBA Finals.

Span talked to The Sports Virus about why the Giants are optimistic despite a rough start: …“we just got Hunter (Pence) back off the DL and we’re still waiting on the big fella (Madison Bumgarner) to come back…once we get full strength it will be good and just give us some confidence knowing we have our opening day roster in tact.”

On his DL stint earlier this season: “Whenever you’re on the DL it’s kind of like a sad, lonely feeling, especially when you see the team not doing as well. The main thing you want to do when you are activated is try to bring some energy. That was my main focus.”

  Span talked to The Sports Virus about new Hall of Famer Ken Griffey, Jr.:

… “He’s one of the reasons why I played this game. He’s influenced this game so much. I think you could go around every clubhouse in Major League Baseball and I guarantee you probably 95% of the guys would say he was their favorite player growing up. Salute to him. Unbelievable career.”

O'DONNELL FEATURED

 O’Donnell talked to The Sports Virus about Bruce Bochy:

… “I think Bochy has done one of his best managing jobs since being a Giants manager. If you look at the first half they compiled the best record in baseball really without 30% of their lineup. If you miss that much talent and you have the best record, at some point you’re going to hit the skids. The 1-7 (to start the second half) doesn’t surprise me. They’re not a 1-7 team but I think this kind of streak was inevitable given the fact that so much talent is sidelined.”

 Brown tells The Sports Virus that Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija are the key for the Giants … “If those two guys are 190 to 210 innings and pitch the way you assume they are going to pitch, this is a really good team because they did score runs last year.”
