Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast
Updated 3 times a week on TheSportsVirus.com!
USA Today baseball columnist Bob Nightengale is in town for the Cubs/Giants series and we catch up with him to talk about the two teams, the deaths of Darren Daulton and Don Baylor and the suspension of umpire Joe West.
Nightengale told The Sports Virus he thinks the Giants still have a hangover from losing to the Cubs in game 4 of the 2016 NLDS and gave his thoughts on their future: “…I think it was a psychological blow, the first time in 11 post season series they finally lost one. They didn’t quite have their swagger…I think they’ve got to go get a slugger. It’s imperative, whether it’s a Jay Bruce, whether it’s a J.D. Martinez, they can’t go into 2018 without some guy. I can see them moving a Joe Panik or a Brandon Belt. I think they’ll be creative in the off season…They need to shake up that lineup.”
Come back FRIDAY when we hear from LHP Josh Osich and INF Kelby Tomlinson of the Giants from AT&T Park in San Francisco.
