Special guests joining us right now Michael Irvin from -- CSN Bay Area dot com Giants insider of course what you with the team you know what it would interest me Michael we appreciate you being here sure is not only that the record. Being you know almost better right. The fact the guys have stepped up emotionally. How they've been able to bounce back yeah it's a resilient team in much like this the team last year. If it was -- one I mean there's no real superstar Tim Lincecum gets a lot of attention actually Brian Wilson does as well and Posey started to get his during the playoff run but really this is not a team that's heavily dependent on one gotten even -- never really carry the club we even and I know when he's at peak of his powers. The fact that they've gotten better since both Posey went down on me better as a relative term their their opposite numbers are still bat. Other still not a very weak dollar took a lot like our tickets -- but they get to fixing to -- to you know make it work form. And and it really is and notes straight it's cliche but this really is the ultimate team every every 125 guys that's on the active roster at any given time. It's different hero every now and the team. Let's get right into what's gonna happen with this ballclub they already lead the division but -- bet they're gonna wanna get better as the deadline you know -- his -- July 20 ninth yet what are they gonna do to get better what they -- Well they didn't bat obviously they love to have a middle of the order presents a problem as most of the teams out there that have somebody like got that they've deemed expendable they're gonna want. But -- -- -- return everything and that's where the conversation and when they bring up a name like that but even somebody like Jonathan Sanchez who might be able to draw you know -- decent talent in return I don't think this Giants team has enough depth in the starting rotation. That was underscored this weekend when Barry Zito after three great starts off the DL he got smoked on Saturday in the instances -- -- six -- to a third. In a rehab start you're supposed to go for the only went to a two thirds if you -- -- guy like Jonathan Sanchez if Zito goes back to be in the Zito that was you know terrible in 2007 and eight. Or god forbid Cain and Lincecum -- one of those guys gets hurt there's nothing that the triple -- level there's nobody that it really trust with a regular turn in the rotation so I don't think they're going to be able to get that big bat because. To get the big -- they're gonna have to give a starter and they don't they -- -- starter. The saves leader Brian Wilson -- the guy with the beard and it is certainly a knowing that everybody -- outside of San Francisco I'd just overseeing distraction at all and what kind of teammate yeah. This season. Like by his team. Really well liked by his teammates is not a distraction at all. They got got more serious than anybody else in baseball over the past four years. And while they're not the greatest saves in the world when you certainly don't respond votes yes big problem bailouts. Office -- Bottom line is he gets the job done. And it's you. Easy when he has that shaky savory blows a save rarely if he beats up on water cooler you -- you know that the comments about Beltran at the all star game the -- -- show highlights you know that's it's been a tuxedo. If the -- when -- struggles much like when Shaquille O'Neal was missed -- free throws or you don't too many rap albums are doing to -- movie guys like that. The fans here start to say well maybe you should shape appear -- maybe he should dial back some of that stuff but that has nothing to do with pitching and Brian Wilson gets the job done. But it sort of a wide houses again or wherever the spandex suit itself and -- the -- maybe -- we asked -- -- -- that if you was gonna wear spandex maybe get -- one for the Carolina and he said that he probably wouldn't be able to get into the White House the one positive would be if you did where that. He wouldn't have to go through the exhaustive security pat down. Because there is no secrets regarding how he's good for. I -- was cool last year they went to the World Series run and it was all well -- good save it for this year move on you know I I'm really tired of getting. He's one of those guys in agree with the I think everybody outside of San Francisco thinks it's a tired act put in San Francisco this guy's a cult hero there's billboards. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Got their top three guys lined up. Got Arizona coming in after that they're right behind the Giants in this race even Pittsburgh its tail end of that round and for the first time -- finished they're legitimate. While we'll have some really good for the and right now -- nice little run of losses Barack for the Giants while the -- fans are gonna win like 12100. We're -- Right -- -- exactly keep an -- don't go and it's Michael urban CSN Bay Area dot com got a Twitter you got to face but -- -- little plug that in Brooklyn went. -- -- -- urban CSN and FaceBook Michael Irvin.
