Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Giants Podcast
Updated 3 times a week on TheSportsVirus.com!
We talk about the state of the Giants bullpen with former Giants lefty Jeremy Affeldt who now serves as an analyst for Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.
The Sports Virus talked to Affeldt about late inning relief for the Giants this season:
… “Because of the youth of the pen you don’t know your identity. Are we going to get a shutdown game? Are we going to get a panic scenario?… It’s about walking out and knowing who you are and saying to yourself, ‘I’m a Major League bullpen backend guy. When I go out you’re not supposed to beat me.’ The game is supposed to be over. That’s why you throw your 7th, 8th, 9th inning guys because it IS over…These guys are just missing that because they lack the experience.”
Come back SATURDAY for an update on the farm system with AAA Sacramento announcer Johnny Doskow.
