We talk about Giants recent winning ways with our regular guest SF Chronicle Columnist John Shea in part 1 of our conversation.
Shea talked to The Sports Virus about the possibility of Madison Bumgarner competing in the All Star home run derby: … “he hasn’t gotten hurt. He hasn’t had arm problems. He’s a big durable guy and if he wants to hit in the home run derby I think you just let him do it because he pretty much does that every day. He takes regular batting practice and it’s a show. He hits balls farther than anybody on that team except for maybe (Hunter) Pence and maybe (Brandon) Belt here and there. He’s a big, strong man and he hits the ball a long way and that’s a perfect addition to the home run derby.”
Ryan Leong is The Sports Virus Warriors reporter and he will be at Oracle Arena in Oakland for our Warriors podcasts the rest of the season. Today’s guest is San Francisco Chronicle reporter Rusty Simmons.
Simmons tells The Sports Virus…”this year you literally could write about Stephen Curry’s toilet and people want to read it.”

Barnett tells The Sports Virus that the Warriors season is “surreal.” On Steph Curry: “I’ve been in the league since 1966. I’ve never seen anything like him. He’s the most unique shooter I’ve ever seen. I’ve never seen players take backward dribbles and fall backwards shooting a three pointer. Usually you have to step into that shot. He’s got the quickest release.”
