On the MLB podcast with Larry:
#1 Larry three more positive Covid tests for the St Louis Cardinals players on the Cards reportedly have gone to the Emergency Room and their weekend series with the Chicago Cubs cancelled due to the outbreak on the team how much more of this should baseball endure and should they cancel the season?
#2 At what point does MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred have to say that the game has a real pandemic issue, their not playing in a bubble, half the roster of the Miami Marlins are still out on quarantine, the Cardinals might have more than just three players out with Coronavirus.
#3 The San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence is one of the nicest people in the game you could either meet or interview, fantastic with the fans and a great clubhouse teammate but on the field he’s struggling he went 0-23 to start the season, he’s hitting .063 with just two hits in 32 at bats, and he totally lost a fly ball in left field when Giants pitcher Johnny Cueto was throwing a no hitter in the sixth inning at Dodger Stadium on Saturday night. As hard as it is to say it about Pence, how much longer will the Giants hold onto him?
#4 The Giants lost a tough game to open the series 7-2 and edged the Dodgers in game two 4-3 outside of the Cueto game the Giants are having struggles with the their starting pitching and getting starters to keep runs down and hold leads.
#5 Giant starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija is no exception, Samardzija has pitched in three games and has allowed six homers and gave up three homers on Friday night in the 7-2 loss in LA he’s on the IL with a shoulder inpingement and is expected to miss ten days at least. Samardzija reportedly could have pitched his last game as a Giant.
