Mid-Inning Relief Podcast — The 27th One: When Is It Okay To Boo A Player?

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.

5-4 Mid-Inning Relief Podcast — The 26th One: Is It Time To Panic?

We’re talking stats, trots, and bullpen carts in this one! Marty Lurie, Carmen Kiew, and Ally Williams discuss whether Rhys Hoskins’ home run trot was appropriate in this baseball climate of bat flip controversies. They also go over whether it is time to panic, if it’s time to trade, and how the San Francisco Giants can bring more energy to the ballpark while the Golden State Warriors and San Jose Sharks are on their exciting playoff runs. Finally, they share their favorite stats when analyzing hitting and pitching (with some explanation of advanced stats) and what the bullpen cart should look like once the Giants bring in the fences and move the bullpens.
