We’ve taken that hardcore fan perspective to the next level. I present to you, the verbal SF Giants Heat Check! Last night, I called all of the Heat Check members and we brought our prose to your ears.
I first called THE Mary Walton (@themarywalton) to set the tone. We discussed the big Dodgers’ trade and how that affects the NL West race. We also talked about the Giants’ moves (Pence, Scutaro, Mijares).
Then we called Butch Husky (@butchhusky) to talk about the Melky Cabrera suspension and who took the reigns as the public Giants team leader. I also let him speak glowingly about his favorite Brandon Crawford.
Stephen Mar (@realstephenmar) joined the podcast next to talk about the struggles of Tim Lincecum. I then asked a hypothetical question about who everyone would choose to be the 4th starter if the Giants made the playoffs — Lincecum or Barry Zito. Craziness ensued.
Darrin Reyes (@drey2531) came in to hit clean-up and we discussed Brandon Belt, which was another hot topic (specifically the way he was handled earlier in the season). We finished off the show talking about how we became Giants fans and who were our favorite players growing up.
