INSIDE CHINA BASIN: Giants 1B/OF Chris Shaw Perseveres, Former SF LHP Scott Eyre Reflects

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast 

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

Giants 1B/OF Chris Shaw joins the SF Giants Inside China Basin podcast. He’s put up big numbers in the minor leagues, but has yet to prove himself in the bigs. Here’s his message to fans wondering about his future:

“STAY TUNED. I’M NOT DONE AND I’M NOT GOING TO QUIT.  I CAN’T EVER PICTURE MYSELF GETTING TO A POINT WHERE I’M WILLING TO WALK AWAY HAVING LEFT A STONE UNTURNED. I JUST WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO LIVE WITH MYSELF IF I DIDN’T GIVE IT EVERYTHING I HAD. THAT’S KIND OF HOW I’VE BEEN MY ENTIRE LIFE. I HAVE BEEN AGAINST ODDS FOR A GOOD AMOUNT OF MY LIFE BASEBALL-WISE AND I’VE ALWAYS REALLY LOVED THE CHALLENGE OF GOING OUT AND BEING ABLE TO PROVE EVERYBODY WRONG.”

Former Giants reliever Scott Eyre talked about the team’s reaction to the 2002 World Series game 6 loss to the Angels:

“I THINK WE WERE IN AWE OF WHAT HAPPENED. IT WAS LIKE A 12-PITCH AT BAT TO (SCOTT) SPIEZIO THAT FINALLY PUT THE NAIL WITH THE HOME RUN…I THINK A LOT OF US SUNK. THERE WAS NOT A WORD SPOKEN IN THE CLUBHOUSE AFTER THE GAME. I DON’T REMEMBER EATING FOOD AFTER THE GAME. THE NEXT DAY WHEN WE GOT TO THE FIELD ALL I EVER HEARD FROM ANYBODY IN THE CLUBHOUSE WAS POSITIVITY. WE HAD THIS, WE WERE GOING TO WIN AND THEN WE GOT SHUT DOWN BY JOHN LACKEY. CRAP HAPPENS.”

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Giants Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

The final push for the post season continues and our final guest of the regular season from AT&T Park is former Giants 3B Coach Tim Flannery, who is now an analyst for Comcast SportsNet Bay Area and MLB Network.

 The Sports Virus talked to Flannery about pinch hitting:

… “Usually when you’re coming off that bench you have a mental game walking to face the closer. One guy on your shoulder is saying ‘I haven’t hit in two weeks,’ while the other guy has gotta say ‘It doesn’t matter, you can get it done, you can get it done.’ So, it’s a mental thing and a lot of times it’s more for the older player.”

Listen To Tim Flannery

Come back next week if the Giants make the post season for a special playoff podcast.
