This week, we talk about BOOING. When is it okay to boo a player on your team? Marty Lurie, Carmen Kiew, and Ally Williams discuss, as well as going over the importance of speed on a team, the shift in dependency between starting and relief pitching, and our favorite Farhan Zaidi move so far. In a fun throwback question, the crew also discusses the hardest player to watch decline, the ones that ended their careers on high notes, and whether they’d rather the Giants play in a ballpark like Oracle, or like one more similar to Coors or Great American Ballpark.
