Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – April 20, 2013

Today on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast, I talk about how the Red Sox are a symbolic healing of Boston. They need to also offer some real tangible methods of healing.

How about free admission to police officers?
And oh yeah, help out the medical bills of those injured.
Small potatoes money wise and a big way to get the love of fans back.

An Angel and a Panda bring the Giants above water

The Giants were about to dip below .500 again, but Angel Pagan smashed a 3 run homer to give the Giants the win today.

 That 1-4 start is further and further in the rear view mirror.

The team that has already withstood an opening 3 game sweep by the Diamondbacks (all one run losses) Lincecum’s crappy start, Bryan Wilson’s season ending injury, a defensive meltdown against the Mets and Aubrey Huff’s anxiety disorder that has put him on the disabled list.

Throw in the Dodgers great start and we could have been looking at an awful start to the Giants year.

Yet here we sit. The team is above .500 (and 9-5 since the awful 17-8 beating in Colorado).

Guess what? They are hitting too. Buster Posey is batting .362 and Pablo Sandoval has a 19 game hitting streak. Plus pick ups Melky Cabrera and Angel Pagan seem to fit the team perfectly.

Is it just me or should the rest of the west be nervous?
