INSIDE CHINA BASIN: Shawn Estes On Gabe Kapler, SF Defense, Lineup & Career Memories

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast 

Updated once a week and celebrating its 11th season on!

Former Giants LHP and current NBC Sports Bay Area analyst Shawn Estes joins us to discuss manager Gabe Kapler’s head scratching moves, try to figure out why the defense has been failing and examine the slow starts for veteran hitters. Also, we go down memory lane and hear some entertaining stories about Shawn’s career.

Estes on Kapler pulling Kevin Gausman in the 7th inning on Sunday in LA with 80 pitches thrown: “You’re going to get more long term out of a pitcher like Gausman by allowing him to get through and battle through situations like that…Dusty Baker was really good at allowing his starting pitchers to work through some trouble, see what they’re made of mentally…If you’re not put in adverse situations then you never know what you can get out of that guy. I thought he pulled the plug way too soon in that situation.”
