This is my go to podcast for the SF Giants. Highly recommend.

Great Pod

It’s really nice to have a little Giants Talk on days when team isn’t playing. Pavs and Cole do a great job keeping it light and informative. Love this show.

Love it

Alex Pavlovic is one of my favorite baseball writers, and he and Cole Kuiper compliment each other well.

Also Alex, I’m a Giants fan in the Portland area, and if we ever do get a team up here please feel free to come and cover them 😀
