Wow, can you believe it? Thirty Chroncasts already. Where does the time go?

Well, this week, it goes to discussing the Giants'  unlucky ace, Madison Bumgarner, whose two pitching losses equaled the Giants only two losses. But we also talk about how his dynamic presence at the plate as a hitter means his presence at this year's MLB Home Run Derby is *essential*.

What are the Giants needs as the trade deadline approaches? Who are our players of the week and what was the best game of the past week?

In addition to answering your sharp Twitter questions (i.e. "What happens when some of these injured Giants come back? Who stays? Who goes?"), we also discuss how easy it is to tank a major league franchise, and, Bryan introduces Doug to his name for the Giants' dark persona -- their Mr. Hyde, if you will.
