On the Giants podcast with Charlie O:
#1 Charlie O Giants going well they have won eight of their last 11 games and when they got into Cobb County at Suntrust Park on Friday were met by a Atlanta Braves club that showed them why their a first place team taking the first game of the three game series 6-5.
#2 The Giants answered right back on Saturday getting a 5-0 shutout victory behind starter Logan Webb who pitched seven innings and gave up five hits. Webb had all his stuff working against the Braves line up on Saturday
#3 Sunday the Giants got shutout in a laugher 9-0 the Braves used five pitchers to accomplish the shutout.
#4 Charlie this is a Braves club that the Giants could very well end up meeting in the post season seeing the Braves at this juncture of the season does that give the Giants a leg up with one more month to go until the post season starts?
#5 Kris Bryant has been a huge help especially with the bat since he’s joined the Giants. The Giants would like him to sign on and stay with the club for next season but everything boils down to money and a good contract. How important do you see it for the Giants to have Bryant sign on and be at spring training for the Giants next season?
#6 The Giants will be facing another first place club the Milwaukee Brewers who hold a 7.5 game lead on the second place Cincinnati Reds. The Brewers have won five of their last ten as they pay a visit to the Giants at Oracle Park for the first of four games which starts tonight at 6:40pm PDT.
