McCovey Chroncast #26 - Four Aces and A Funeral

Madison Bumgarner leads a pack of wild aces (and Jake Peavy) against the Padres and Cubs and the Giants end the week atop the NL West.

He good.
He good.
Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

After a 5-1 week, the Giants have now won 9 out of their last 10 games, including a Sunday Night Baseball game. We talk about the dominant stretch by the top three starters and the sudden -- and welcome -- emergence/return to form of Matt Cain as a viable major league baseball player.

Is Matt Cain back? And more importantly, does Matt Cain's potential "he's back-ness" mean that trading for rotation help is no longer a priority? Is there a move the Giants might make that would make them regret it a la the Orioles trading away Jake Arrieta?

We also answer your Twitter questions, not all of which are baseball-related this week. Hear our thoughts on men's fashion and what constitutes the best party we've ever attended. You'll notice that we're trying out a new intro bumper, too. It's formal, cleaner, and pleasant to the ear before our voices (mainly Bryan's) assaults your senses.
