On the Giant’s podcast with Daniel:
#1 The San Francisco Giants have been struggling losing six of their last ten games dropping their last two games in San Diego and are in third place in the NL West some 23 1/2 games behind first place Los Angeles the Giants chances of a wild card birth fading fast.
#2 Since the All Star break the Giants are 6-14 and have lost by 37 runs this stat shows they really need some help with middle and closing relief.
#3 The Giants opened their last three game series in San Diego last Mon Aug 8th with a 1-0 win thanks to the pitching efforts of Alex Wood who pitch six plus innings and the bullpen came through to uphold the shutout effort. The Giants lost the next two games to the Pads by scores of 7-4 and 13-7.
#4 Daniel, some sad news on Thursday the San Francisco Giants announced the passing of former pitcher Tim Lincecum’s wife Cristin Coleman. It should be noted that Cristin had been battling cancer. Lincecum who is extremely private didn’t even tell the Giants that Cristin and he were married and that she had died June 27th. It was also Cristin’s parents who made a statement regarding their daughter’s bout with cancer. Lincecum has not made a statement of any kind and did not go to the 2012 World Series reunion. He last appeared at a reunion when former Giants manager Bruck Bochy retired in 2019.
