INSIDE CHINA BASIN: Ryan Vogelsong Reminisces, Brian Anderson Talks Brew Crew

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated twice a week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Former Giants pitcher Ryan Vogelsong’s journey to the AT&T Park Wall of Fame is a story of great perseverance and determination. Now, he is passing on his knowledge to SF pitchers as a roving instructor. Recently he helped turn around the fortunes of RHP Chris Stratton. Here’s what he told The Sports Virus on Inside China Basin on Thursday morning:

“He was getting a little rotational and coming off the ball a little bit and that does two things, it’ll make the ball flatten out, it’ll make it cut. The biggest thing for me when you do that is the hitter sees the ball early…I just talked to him about two little keys that helped me stay on line and hide the ball.

Vogey also reminisced about dreams coming true in a Giants uniform:

“There’s probably not a day that I wake up now and kinda look at myself in the mirror and I’ll see a picture on the wall and I kind of don’t believe that’s me in those pictures. I know it happened, but it doesn’t seem possible that it happened.”

Brewers and Turner Sports TV voice Brian Anderson is also our guest, setting us up for the Giants series in Milwaukee this weekend. Even though San Francisco has dropped out the pennant race, Anderson still has a lot of respect for the Giants organization:

“The Giants are one of the gold standard organizations in baseball and it’s been a few down years here, but I think it’s gotta be 5 or 6 down years for people around the game including me to look at the Giants in any other way than this is a first class organization that has not made great decisions on players here recently, but made so many great decisions that they’re still way ahead of the game in that regard. I don’t question anything the Giants do.

Listen To Vogey and Brian Anderson

Brewers Voice Brian Anderson: Posey Low RBI Total Due To “Not Getting Hittable Pitches”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Anderson weighs in with The Sports Virus on Buster Posey’s low RBI total so far: “…He’s not getting the hittable pitches that he would normally if he had a series of really big weapons behind him. No offense to Brandon Belt, they’re all having down years. So, right now the Giants are a team that you’re going into it saying, ok, by no means is Buster Posey going to beat us and we’re going to take our chances. So, then if you’re Buster Posey what’s the next level for you? You’re gonna expand your strike zone, you know you’re being counted on, that’s going to effect your run producing story. So, it’s just kind of a perfect storm of just lack of production offensively around Posey…he’s still elite in every perspective. My guess is he’ll rally up and he’ll have a good year.”
