BRING ON THE CONTENDERS?

Ben previews the last five weeks of the season for the Giants. In a lost season (the Giants were eliminated from the NL West on Sunday), what should fans be paying attention to in the season’s home stretch? Is there hope for next year?

STRATTON DAZZLES, BUT TEAM’S FUTURE REMAINS BLEAK

Ben discusses Chris Stratton’s dazzling start on Sunday, but puts it all into perspective as the Giants look ahead to 2018. Stratton and Ty Blach may become fixtures in the Giants’ rotation for years to come. Music Credit: Music Released by Tasty Records Artist: TheFatRat Song: Xenogenesis

OLD-SCHOOL THINKING, LOYALTY KEY IN DREADFUL SEASON (with Adam Petke)

Adam is back in studio. He and Ben discuss what went wrong for the 41-68 San Francisco Giants. They point to the team’s bad bullpen, failure to platoon vulnerable players, and atrocious outfield defense (and hitting) as key causes.

LAST-PLACE GIANTS (40-66) STAND PAT AT DEADLINE

Ben discusses the Giants’ lack of moves at the trading deadline. Does a trade in August make more sense? What is (and what should be) the short- and long-term plan for this seemingly slipping franchise? Music Credit: Music Released by Tasty Records Artist: TheFatRat Song: Xenogenesis

EDUARDO NUÑEZ TRADED; IS A CORE PLAYER NEXT?

Ben analyzes the Eduardo Nuñez trade (why it was obvious and inevitable) and discusses the surprisingly decent return. He also opines that a core player (or two) may be the next to go. Music Credit: Music Released by Tasty Records Artist: TheFatRat Song: Xenogenesis

A SERIES WIN, THE SELLOUT STREAK, SANDOVAL, & SWIRLING TRADE RUMORS

Ben discusses the Giants’ series win against the Indians, and the reported signing of Pablo Sandoval to a minor league contract. He talks about needing the front office to be ruthless, not sentimental, if the team wants to compete in the National League West in years to come. Music Credit: Music Released by Tasty Records […]

TIME TO TRADE: ANALYZING STANTON, STRICKLAND, OTHER RUMORS

It’s that time of year again. The Giants have virtually no chance of making the playoffs this year, and the trading deadline is just two weeks away. Will the Giants make a big splash? Rumors abound and the clock is ticking. Music Credit: Music Released by Tasty Records Artist: TheFatRat Song: Xenogenesis

SHOULD THEY TRADE BRANDON BELT?

Ben analyzes the Giants’ difficult situation: they’re 64-98 over their last 162 games since the 2016 All-Star break. They have an aging offensive core. Johnny Cueto probably won’t bring back much in a trade. Music Credit: Music Released by Tasty Records Artist: TheFatRat Song: Xenogenesis

WINNING GAMES, BUT DOES IT MATTER?

Ben discusses the Giants’ recent hot streak, but puts it all into context in what has been a miserable 2017 season and past calendar year overall. Music Credit: Released by Tasty Records Artist: TheFatRat Song: Xenogenesis
