On the SF Giants podcast with Michael:

#1 Michael, on Friday former San Francisco Giant third baseman Matt Williams and current San Diego Padres third base coach will have surgery for colon cancer. Padres manager Bob Melvin says he doesn’t have a time frame when Williams will return.

#2 Williams broke in with the Giants in 1987 and was one of their top hitters and is best remembered for being on that Dusty Baker 1993 team where he hit .294.

#3 Michael, you covered those glory years when the Giants went and won three World Series in 2010, 2012, and 2014. The Giants just honored retired pitcher Sergio Romo who was a huge part of those teams and shut the door in relief for the Giants in the World Series but also in some of those crucial to get there.

#4 Michael, how ironic was it that Romo’s old roommate Hunter Pence came out to take out Romo motioning to the bullpen after Romo gave up two hits and a wild pitch to the Oakland A’s in relief. It was quite and emotional send off for Romo but he said he loved every moment of the opportunity the Giants gave to him.

#5 Michael, talk about the opener at Yankee Stadium this morning as the Giants will be going with Logan Webb going up against the Yankees Gerrit Cole. Talk about the match up and how you see the Giants faring at Yankee Stadium today?
