INSIDE CHINA BASIN: Duggar: “Check Off A Box A Night” – Rodriguez: “I’m My Own Person”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated twice a week on!

Midseason promotions from the minor leagues have had a huge impact on the Giants season. CF Steven Duggar was ticketed for San Francisco ever since spring training when he performed well in the Cactus League. Dereck Rodriguez was a great find for the Giants after signing a minor league contract before the season. Now he’s a National League Rookie of the Year candidate. Duggar and Rodriguez join us from AT&T Park.
Plus, we get an update on the California League Giants prospects with the Voice of the San Jose Giants Joe Ritzo.

Listen To Duggar, Rodriguez and Ritzo

Duggar told The Sports Virus he’s trying to “find a way to check off a box a night, whether it’s a walk, a stolen base, a defensive play. Just one thing to help the team win a night.”

Rodriguez told The Sports Virus about his current relationship with his Dad, Hall of Famer Ivan Pudge Rodriguez: “Lately he’s been letting me do my own thing. I’m my own person. He had his career, it was a great career, Hall of Fame career. Now it’s my turn to show everybody what I got.”

Join us again next week when we chat with Ray Woodson.
