Good morning, McCoven!
First, I wanted to give a quick housekeeping note. As you are all aware, the Giants’ season is over, which means that this content factory is slowing down just a bit. We’ll only be doing weekday BPs, and the weekends will be pretty light overall, aside from breaking news. There may or may not be game threads for the playoff games, and you are welcome to migrate to those if you’d like. Otherwise, the morning BP threads will be the active threads at all time, with the ones posted on Friday morning lasting through the weekend.
Moving on, Brandon Crawford updated the Brandon Blog on Wednesday with his musical choices for his teammates in the final game of the season, as well as his DJ reasoning for most of them. You can read the blog post here.
I just wanted to share one that was a pretty great highlight, both head-scratching and hilarious, about Madison Bumgarner:
“Look What You Made Me Do” Taylor Swift. He really likes this song. We’d listen to it every time he pitched because he asked me one day to play it in the clubhouse and he got on a roll. So we kept it going. I love how much he likes that song.
Not exactly what you’d expect from Bumgarner, but then we obviously don’t know the ins and outs of these players’ musical preferences. Another example of this in the blog post was Buster Posey’s fondness for early 2000s hip hop, because that was what he listened to when he was in high school, despite being a country boy at heart.
