Mid-Inning Relief Podcast — The Twelfth One: Is Any Player Truly ‘Untouchable?’ (Feat. Dave Flemming)

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.

Minor League Notes: Aramis Garcia, after his promotion to Triple-A in Sacramento. Joey Bart, who continues to rake for the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes, AND now steals bases!
