Has Farhan Zaidi already met expectations? Also, Bryan and Sami go over the new community guidelines and talk Brandon Belt.
Unfortunately, it’s not all good news. Or much good news.
The Giants lost, 6-1. Arizona was not fooled by the Giants’ best starter.
Bumgarner (8-7, 3.63 ERA) vs. Kelly (8-12, 4.75 ERA)
Belt just had one of his worst stretches, but he’s the same hitter.
The dominant closer’s recent performance hasn’t looked so… Bright.
I swear, we can pretty much just C&P that headline at this point...
Oh, and Kevin Pillar was 5-for-5. Just an abundance of riches tonight.
Webb (MLB debut) vs. Clarke (4-3, 5.46 ERA)
It’s kind of hard to believe.
He doesn’t just have a new swing. He has a new approach, too.
Mike Yastrzemski and Kevin Pillar took turns being the hero as the pair combined for five dingers.
Samardzija (9-9, 3.55 ERA) vs. Leake (9-9, 4.58 ERA)
Cancel your Saturday plans, the Giants’ top pitching prospect is here.
He has the stuff. He just needs the confidence.
It was normal baseball stuff, just to be clear. Nothing too weird here.
Everybody was on the road, and it wasn’t a happy trip for most.
The Giants needed someone from the back of the rotation to step up and Dereck Rodríguez heeded the call.
Rodríguez (4-6, 5.32 ERA) vs. Young (4-2, 3.32 ERA)
The Giants will never stop transacting. Try to keep up here.
Numbers tell us what he can’t do, but they won’t tell us how he’s been able to help the Giants this season.
This series probably decides the season for both teams. Unless it doesn’t.
Apologies for the clickbait headline, but it requires some explaining.
Tight races coming down to the wire throughout the system
Bumgarner, Samardzija, and pray for a pardon-ja.
