McCovey Chroncast #21 - Season Premiere

Baseball is back, you guys. These games count. Which means this podcast now counts.

It's the regular season now, and that means I am going to start looking really, really stupid as all my really, really stupid predictions start to be really, really disproven.

Doug and I look back on a 5-2 week that featured two near-sweeps and an historically great Giants-Dodgers game. Like, an all-timer. And it was nearly a top-10 Caining.

We also examine Brandon Belt's contract extension (and deftly avoid making Belt-related jokes at Pablo Sandoval's expense), pick our player of the week (and an honorable mention), and focus on Matt Duffy a little bit more than you'd expect given everything else that happened in week 1 of the regular season. But the big news is that I talk positively about the Giants for five solid minutes. You won't believe your ears.

All in all, a pretty amazing week of Giants baseball and a near-best case scenario to start off the 2016 season.
