On the Giants podcast with Michael:
#1 In the Andrew McCutchen deal that sent him to the New York Yankees, it gave the Giants a young prospect that’s maybe the key to this deal in acquiring Abiatal Avelino a promising second baseman.
#2 Avelino thought that when he got the call to go the show. He thought he was going to New York to replace injured second baseman Greyber Torres, but he found out he was being traded to San Francisco for Andrew McCutchen.
#3 Avelino wasn’t disappointed about coming to SF realizing he’ll have a better chance at starting in the Giants’ rebuild. Also, what does that mean for second baseman Joe Panik’s future with the Giants?
#4 The Giants take a five-game losing streak into Milwaukee tonight. The Brewers are in the hunt. Is this going to be a series on what the call ups can do or can they get up for this game and take it to the Brew Crew and play spoilers?
#5 Also, talk about the Rockies’ Trevor Story, who hit three home runs Wednesday night and 31 for the year, and how Giants pitcher Andrew Suarez just couldn’t contain him.
