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

Join us again Tuesday when we’ll be at AT&T Park in San Francisco as the Giants take on the NL East leading Atlanta Braves.

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Giants Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Our special guests before the Giants Monday night series opener against the Pirates are  Giants LHP Matt Moore and Steve Bitker from KCBS in San Francisco. 

MATTMOORE

 Prior to his first home start as a Giant, Moore told The Sports Virus about the vibe he felt when he first joined the team:

… “Just getting in the clubhouse, you can feel the winning mentality. You can feel the presence of a lot of these guys.”

BITKER

Bitker tells The Sports Virus that even though the Giants have been slumping, they have the edge over LA:

… “They’ve got too much talent. They’ve got too much experience. Post season experience and pennant-chasing experience. I don’t see the Dodgers still as a legitimate challenger to them. If you look at the starting rotations, even though the Giants rotation has had ups and downs, it’s infinitely more skilled than the Dodgers rotation…I just see the Dodgers wilting down the stretch.”
