Mid-Inning Relief Podcast — Goodbye, 2018! The 20th One: Should Game 163 Count As A Playoff Game?

Goodbye, 2018 season! In our twentieth podcast, Marty Lurie, Carmen Kiew, and Ally Williams go over storylines of the season, who the San Francisco Giants should re-sign, and how ownership can incentivize season ticket holders for the future. Looking forward, the crew also goes over this year’s postseason, Games 163, Yasiel Puig’s World Series promise, and our playoff predictions.

A big thank you to our listeners for staying with us through our first 20 episodes of the Mid-Inning Relief podcast! Even with the tough year from the Giants, we appreciate you listening and sending us your feedback. We will have podcasts interspersed throughout the offseason – whenever something piques our interest, so keep up with us and let us know what you’d like to hear. We’ll be back in full force in 2019!

Mid-Inning Relief — The Nineteenth One: Breaking Down The Front Office Shake-Up

It’s the penultimate episode of the season! In Ep. 19, Marty Lurie, Carmen Kiew, and Ally Williams welcome Bonnie-Jill Laflin (@BJLaflin on Twitter) to the podcast! Bonnie-Jill is the first and only female NBA scout, a former Warriors, Niners, and Cowboys Cheerleader, and the newest co-host of Murph and Mac in the morning on KNBR.

The four discuss Bobby Evans’ departure and front office shake-up, season schedules, and MLB’s fines and punishments for Carlos Gomez’s Periscope, as opposed to the Twitter storm of old offensive tweets that surfaced this season. They also share their favorite quirks about AT&T Park and their picks for this year’s Willie Mac Award winner. Finally, in light of Hunter Pence’s recent offensive surge, and the news that he’ll head to winter ball this offseason: should the San Francisco Giants re-sign the beloved veteran?
