INSIDE CHINA BASIN: Longoria Calls His Defense “Poor,” Slater Talks Hitting, Miller On Bonds

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated twice a week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Giants 3B Evan Longoria talked about his defense and the urgency to win now, Austin Slater chatted about hitting and playing first base. Jon Miller discussed the Giants season and Barry Bonds’ great moments. It’s all part of the Thursday podcast before the first game of a four-game series against the Pirates.

Longoria knows time is running out for the Giants to contend for a playoff spot:

“…I think we need to play with a little more urgency. This is the time that we really need to buckle down…I really do believe that we have the guys in here to win. This is a good baseball club. This is a team that knows how to win with a bunch of guys who have been around for a long time. We need to take that collective group effort out there on the field with us every night…Every team has a turning point, positive or negative and I don’t think we’ve reached that yet. There will definitely be a point in the next week or two where we look up and say we didn’t play well enough and we don’t have a chance anymore or the chance has become very real, we’ve put ourselves in a situation where the post-season hopes are right in front of us and that will flip the switch the other way.

Listen To Longoria, Slater and Miller
