    There R Giants Pod-56 with Joe Ritzo

    Tonight, the Low-A West Championship Series begins pitting the San Jose Giants against the Fresno Grizzlies. The Giants will be trying to win their first championship since the 2010 season, which ended their Cal League dynasty of the first decade of this century. To get you all set for the championship match, Joe Ritzo stops by today to discuss the changes on this San Jose roster, how they look heading into the playoffs, and whether this is the best San Jose team Joe’s ever seen.

    Joe will be calling each game of the series, starting tonight. If you can’t listen in (or watch on MiLBTV), follow Joe on Twitter @JoeRitzo to get all the details. And, of course, you can follow me as well @rog61 to find all of my thoughts and work, or subscribe to There R Giants to get all of my writing delivered straight to your Inbox.

    There R Giants Pod-55 with Johnny Doskow

    Long time voice of the Sacramento River Cats Johnny Doskow joins me on the latest edition of There R Giants podcast. Johnny and I talk about the difficulties of being an “extended” part of the Giants roster, how long players need to stay at minor league levels, and the difficulties of developing into a big leaguer. And we talk lots and lots of players, too! It’s a great conversation that I’m sure you’ll enjoy.

Baba Daraja ,

The best sports podcast out there!

I have been listening to 49ers, Golden State Warriors and giant podcasts for years and this is my absolute favorite. I am a (football, basketball and baseball) prospect/draft junkie and no other podcast can deliver like this one.

Keep up the awesome work. 🙏 Please keep em coming!

Giants Just Around the Corner

Roger sees how the Giants farm is working plus has the best guests. Right now you really want to know how the Rebuild is about to become real. Listen to Roger!

MichaelSB89 ,

The best Giants prospect podcast

There are so many Giants podcasts popping up, but Roger’s is my favorite. His prospect knowledge is top notch, and the guests he brings on are outstanding. Just got done listening to him with Jim Callis, and it caused me to be even more excited about the upcoming minor league season.
