McCovey Chroncast #23 - 4 Wins, 2 Problematic Losses

The Giants survive several rough patches over April to start the first week of the new month at .500.

Santiago Casilla is the least of the Giants' worries. And look at his marvelous complexion. That is some flawless skin.

The Giants end a 4-2 week on a high note by snapping the Mets' winning streak, but there are definitely some questions about the back of the rotation and the bullpen. Maybe the organization doesn't want to focus on that too much, but the near-traumatic impact of a Jake Peavy or Matt Cain start makes it difficult for us here at the ol' Chroncast to focus on anything else about the team. Just how long a leash do you think the team should give these two going forward?

But we do manage to focus a lot of our attention on the truly great elements on the roster: Johnny Cueto, Jeff Samardzija, Madison Bumgarner, and Matt Duffy. And we spend some time kicking ourselves for not talking up Santiago Casilla enough over the years. We also answer your Twitter questions.
