Giants Guests: Jeff Samardzija, Nick Hundley, Derek Law and Javy Lopez

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated twice a week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Once again we have a wide range of Giants guests as spring training continues in the Cactus League. Jeff Samardzija, Nick Hundley and Derek Law were interviewed at media day in San Francisco prior to Fan Fest. Javy Lopez joined us outside the Giants dugout at Scottsdale Stadium at the beginning of March.

Samardzija talked to The Sports Virus about his mindset after a difficult 2017 season for San Francisco: …“When you pitch through situations you become a stronger guy on the back end. Whether that’s a minor injury you pitch through or a rough patch you pitch through or a rough season that you go out and no luck is going your way and you keep pitching. When you do get a normal situation after that you kind of sit there and understand that hey, you don’t take it for granted. A healthy team, a strong team, a team that’s bonded together doesn’t happen all the time. It’s not the norm. It’s a special case when 25 guys come together and you have a nice long stretch. You appreciate certain situations a little more when you go through rough patches. Whatever that rough patch is when you come out on the other end usually you are a little stronger for it. For me, I’m just excited to go through that and then have a clean slate and start all over with great spirits and a team that’s ready to win..”

Listen To Samardzija, Hundley, Law and Lopez

Giants Guests: Austin Jackson, Mark Melancon, Austin Slater, Mac Williamson & Tyler Beede

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated once a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

We have a wide range of Giants guests as spring training continues in the Cactus League. Austin Jackson joins us (while getting some ribbing from Pablo Sandoval when talking about the 2012 World Series), as well as Tyler Beede and Mark Melancon from Scottsdale Stadium. Mac Williamson and Austin Slater were interviewed at media day in San Francisco prior to Fan Fest.

 

Mac Williamson is off to a great start in Cactus League play with a .412 batting average, 4 HR, 13 RBIs in his first 15 games, but he is realistic about the meaning of those numbers: …“I don’t think it’s super important to look at the numbers in spring. Everybody is trying to work on something and get in the rhythm and that includes the opposing pitchers. They’re not immune to making mistakes in spring that they’re not going to make during the season…I’ve had ok springs in the past and it hasn’t always translated to the season…For the most part it’s important to remain healthy.”

Listen To Jackson, Slater, Melancon, Williamson and Beede

Join us next week for another podcast with interviews from spring training in Scottsdale.

Hensley Meulens, Steven Duggar and Gregor Blanco Join Inside China Basin From Scottsdale

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated once a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Hensley Meulens is making the move from Giants hitting coach to bench coach, Steven Duggar is vying for a spot in the SF outfield and Gregor Blanco returns to his favorite team. All 3 men joined us from Scottsdale Stadium last week.

Blanco is hoping to bring a spark back to the Giants: …“I really saw that they were missing the extra fight that you always need to win games (in 2017). Extra energy. It was hard to find that, that’s the way I saw it from the outside (while with the Diamondbacks)…Now coming here in spring training and I see Pablo Sandoval and all of those guys who have a really good connection with each other, we are starting to have fun again.”

Listen To Meulens, Duggar and Blanco

Join us next week for another podcast with interviews from spring training in Scottsdale.
