On the program discussions on the rebuilding in the off season for the San Francisco Giants, manager Bruce Bochy will look to his farm system for prospects and the team will look at who will stay or who they can deal. Even amongst people who will remain nameless within the Giants organization there’s even been talk to move Joe Panik you could always find a second baseman because they’re easy to find why would anyone give you much in return for Panik?

This is someone you want to keep around defense up the middle is important and if your give Brandon Crawford the opportunity to work together for five years they will be a better double play combination than Jose Uribe and Robby Thompson were in the 90s. Panik is a player that reminds you of Thompson a lot. Who could forget that double play that Panik made in the 2014 World Series and Panik made one of the best double plays we’ve ever seen.

There’s much, much more from Il Foranio listen to the podcast below:

Welcome back to another podcast of Sportstalk  with your host Jerry Feitelberg with co hosts Matt Harrington, Ben Leonard, Jeremy Harness, Len Shapiro, and Lee Leonard my producer.

Podcasting from Il Fornaio Restorante inside the Westin Hotel at 302 South Market Street in downtown San Jose. I want to thank our hosts Il Fornaio general manager Sergio Lopez, sales and marketing coordinator Tammy Rowe, Ken Johns assistant manager, and manger Andrew Rowe. I will have some questions for Sergio and his staff but first I want to remind you,

Il Fornaio’s goal was, and still is, to offer the most authentic Italian dining experience available outside of Italy.

The company’s philosophy emphasizes serving the highest-quality food from the freshest ingredients in stylishly comfortable surroundings, while providing exceptional value. Using its Italian baking heritage as a foundation, the first full-service restaurant opened in Corte Madera (Marin County), California. The response was so overwhelmingly positive that Il Fornaio has since opened a total of 21 restaurants in California, Las Vegas, Colorado, and Washington.

We thank Il Fornaio for holding our podcast here at the downtown San Jose location inside the Westin Hotel and know that they will provide you with an elegant, memorable, and authentically Italian event.
