In the twelfth episode of Mid-Inning Relief, San Francisco Giants broadcaster Dave Flemming joins the pod! Carmen Kiew, Marty Lurie, and Ally Williams talk to the much-loved radio broadcaster about a number of things, including how Dave grew to love baseball and some of his favorite calls (and later, a special moment from Buster Posey during Matt Cain’s perfect game).

This week’s topics include the good and bad of rookie hazing, potential big names in baseball that could still get traded, whether the Giants should trade Madison Bumgarner, and more. The Mid-Inning Relief crew also discusses favorite promos, and whether the Giants should try to sign Clayton Kershaw if the lefty chooses to opt out of his current contract.

It’s the eighth episode of Mid-Inning Relief! This week, Marty Lurie, Carmen Kiew, and Ally Williams discuss whether Bruce Bochy will be back next season, the future of the San Francisco Giants’ rotation and starting outfield, and several international prospects that were just signed by the club. 

They also discuss whether it’s ever okay for a GM, front office person or manager to call out a struggling player, whether the All Star Game starters are really the best at their positions, and which patriotic holiday is the best to go see a game.
