 Munn tells The Sports Virus about the current mindset of Diamondbacks fans: “…a lot of people have come off the ledge. Especially after (Wednesday night’s Diamonbacks win). If (Shelby) Miller doesn’t pitch well today they’ll be right back on the ledge tomorrow morning.”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Giants Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

While checking out Giants prospect Jose Vizcaino, Jr. in San Jose, we had a chance to talk to his dad, Jose Vizcaino, Sr., who played for San Francisco in 1997 and 2006 as part of an 18-year Major League career. When Jr. broke a few bats, Sr. was able to ask a good friend with the Angels for some new lumber.

 Vizcaino, Sr. tells The Sports Virus that his son used a special bat to hit his first HR in the California League for the San Jose Giants: … “Albert Pujols is one of my best friends. He always calls me and tells me, ‘when you need some bats just let me know.’ Two weeks ago I sent (Vizcaino, Jr.) Pujols’ number and told him to text Pujols and tell him to send you some bats. During spring training he sent some bats and now he’s sending more bats, especially (after Vizcaino, Jr.) broke 3 bats (in one game).”

John Shea revisedTOSCALITO ON SITE

 Shea tells The Sports Virus: “…now without the neighborhood play the infielder has to stay on the bag longer and therefore is more prone to contact with the runner who has to come to the base. If you’re on the base and he’s gotta go to the base, those are two trains coming at each other.”

 In the wake of the opening home stand against the Dodgers, Purdy tells The Sports Virus:  “…I can’t think of a 4-game series in the first two weeks of the season almost as compelling as that. We had a little bit of everything. The home opening game kind of showed why this Giants team may be a little different than others.”

 Shea tells The Sports Virus: “…I think Chris Heston is going to start some games this year. At the back end (of the rotation) you have (Jake) Peavy and you have (Matt) Cain and those are the question marks. Until further notice all eyes are going to be on them and they’ve gotta succeed because they have Chris Heston waiting on deck maybe at some time in May if they’re not effective.”

 Brown tells The Sports Virus what he learns from watching Buster Posey… “I watch a lot of his pitch calling. I try to sit there on the side and call pitches while I’m not playing to see how on the same page I would be with Buster. I try to watch his strategy.”
