SF Chronicle’s John Shea Part 2: Joe Panik “Has Value On the Market…A 2B Can Be Replaced”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

San Francisco Chronicle columnist John Shea joins us from San Diego to talk about what to expect on the trade front and the return of Madison Bumgarner as the Giants play the Padres following the All Star break.

Shea suggested to The Sports Virus that Joe Panik might be on the trading block: “…He’s three years until free agency. He’s a very good defensive player. He can get in a groove offensively. He’s a good teammate. He’s got some value on the market. I think a second baseman can be replaced… He’s not a power guy, they’re not going to miss any kind of power. He’s not a speed guy, they’re not going to miss any kind of speed. They would miss his defense and his presence, but if you could get a left field prospect and a pitching prospect for Joe Panik I think you’ve got to make the move.”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Giants Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Giants second baseman Joe Panik and Bay Area News Group Columnist Carl Steward  join us from AT&T Park in San Francisco as the Giants try to hang on to first place in the NL West.

Panik,Joe

 Panik told The Sports Virus:

… “I’m a very emotional player. People just don’t see it. I hold it in. I hide it in certain ways, but I care, I give a damn. Just because you might show that you’re even keel doesn’t mean that you don’t care.”

 The Sports Virus asked Steward about Denard Span’s hold on the leadoff spot:

… “It’s classic (Bruce) Bochy. He believes this guy is eventually going to come around and deliver for this team. He hasn’t been horrible. He just hasn’t maybe lived up to the expectation a lot of people had for him.”

 Doskow was asked by The Sports Virus about Hunter Pence’s rehab assignment:

“ …There’s no reason to rush him. They are going to slow play it and I think it’s smart. You’d rather have a healthy Pence go in mid-August than rush him and have something else happen. Even watching him leg out a double, he’s obviously not 100 percent, but he’s gonna get there and I think the slower you play it the better.”

 Shea talked to The Sports Virus about the Giants superb infield defense: “…  You talk about gold glovers. The only one with one is (Brandon) Crawford, but there’s gonna be more. I put down the computer (on a) ground ball. It’s a must watch because they’re turning double plays, it’s so swift, it’s clean and the essence of defense and glove work. It’s beautiful to watch right now.”

 Wotus tells The Sports Virus that Gold Glove winning SS Brandon Crawford is “kind of like Omar Vizquel, JT Snow and these guys that love playing defense. I don’t have to worry about him. I think he’ll work smarter. He’ll take care of his body and not overdo it. You just expect him to keep getting better.”
