8.3: Mike Krukow and Duane Kuiper at the CSN BBQ
The Giants' broadcast team stops by the Authentic BBQ to talk about the season.
Barbecue here as well but yeah. And sportscaster. Experiences well. The next got to raise -- -- be the next my -- go the next lane diaper and let me tell you certainly want to be. Pablo got a huge ovation and I know about the rock star status you both have -- I didn't know what pulling. Until right now like Mick Jagger but it's pretty play and then had a chance to -- your hair. Okay. You're. This wherever you acknowledges that the Giants won the World Series that will we get it -- parades we get a British guys I don't know very good last November. Don't you know it and I think you. We have a great relationship with the fans because you were in the house every night -- -- And am I -- group of of the Giants -- we were probably the most approachable because. They kind of feel like He knows that we're in their their house every night so it's been great day if you could've walked our walk this last offseason. The Giants win the World Series and we had a parade. And all offseason wherever we went people came up to us whether we're in the store day at a restaurant to them in a mall. Get a little line and they get their testimony as to what that team into them and and we just were good listeners we just became good listeners so I think there's a kinship with the story -- about this great team and we get to be the story tellers so. It's a great -- do we have. Well plus I think there's a major misconception. That. We're together all the time. -- Now after we do this. We're gonna go off somewhere and we're gonna have dinner and we're gonna go back in we're gonna spoon you know it and I think I think people like that -- Joseph -- well. Would have mattered either but I think people think we're together all the time and I mean Mike lives in the city I love you know Indian -- Then. People ask me all the time they go hey guys. Worst -- know like he's supposed to be attached to leave it at that particular moment so. It's a great compliment it really is because I wouldn't mind being with a multi time do my wife asked me all the time she said. Same thing going on with you two guys at go into an old. I mean maybe on the road this smells a book with your wife and my dad and outscored revived his. Kelly why can't you know me and I don't. What I -- get it over to talk a little baseball and you guys but since I -- the ball so well you are very very different. People you have different interest I think the way. -- the baseball world when you're together though you're the best of friends your chemistry on the year I've told this before. Is second enough I think you are the best -- not only working baseball that can maybe the best dual. In the history sportscaster and oh god I would make you blush because you work it's not like you're the best that you what you do he's the best at what He does put together. You're just so great together because it's such a genuine as to what you are different so. How -- -- didn't come together for three hours of watching ball Mike and it's just beautiful. First off thank you very flexible so wonderful company we. You know. We're best friends we get to go to -- Every day we enjoy. Making each other -- and we get to see you know the game that we your beloved. -- we're we're blessed because on our crew with -- with Jim Lynch's brother. Jeff I've heard it and our entire staff of the truck and on the -- camera people wrong about the same age. And we've all been raised throughout the game everybody at some point is play this game. Head please feel a great responsibility to tell the story on the basis that. Here are two guys have played together the hung out together as players. We've gone through life and you know we shared life's experiences with the our children -- are raising their families of one we just have a lot in common everyday and we just like being around each other. You know and we like. The rest of our -- mean Jon Miller Dave's living there are wonderful people and great friends. Really feel a little luckiest guys the world we are the luckiest guys in the world so it's a wonderful compliment you give to us and and we just feel like every day we get to do this we don't take for granted and we want to have a win. Very callous and Richie Ashburn who were great friends and a great duo Philadelphia Richie guys. -- we watch we've done dries -- passed away. We do not take one day progress that we are not that we we just take every day like it's going to be the last we're gonna do we just try to enjoy each other and and experience. Every day see I can simplify it okay. I know that if I can interchange him. Then I'm entertaining. And vice Versa if He makes me laugh. -- he's entertaining me then he's entertaining the entire audience because I think we know our audience right. Andy and I think that's what makes -- work you know we hit games all the time that are very good and we ask our our guys. Did into the stands and show us some people that. That are odd virtuoso. A baby you're. Did they do and you know and then we'd play off each other and we really enjoy it because. It's truly brutal blows all the time just because of the bad games -- doesn't mean it has to be ahead run. Chemistry here your chemistry is as the best and there's a certain chemistry it seems I -- -- way. For the Giants bring it in three new guys in the -- what two weeks of the day starting with the Keppinger trade I heard people talking on the -- About chemistry of a baseball team but unlike other sports it's hard to bring in three new football players -- -- this season won't work and basketball and take a long time and hockey likewise. Just watching baseball and why does it take long for guys you have to -- why can't Carlos Beltran hit right away but Andres Torres leading off as opposed them. To Jose Reyes why does there have to be a chemistry -- -- has to come together in a game that is a team sport. But it's individuals doing individual things doing. Well I mean that's really good question and I know a lot of people worried about it when they brought new people that but the bottom line is the best thing about chemistry is. Is it that helps you win the everybody's gonna buy into the new people that are dominant He was very odd. That you trade for a player. Like Carlos Beltran when He gets in the lineup. He become your best player. Mean that's very odd that usually doesn't happen. So other people are gonna have the volume that including the leaders from last year like in Aubrey Huff any little fat girls on the DL. He has the buy into it. And once they start to win but these guys. -- the chemistry is going to be. But it does get a little tricky and the heads up for the veterans to make this happen and then they will make him. Well it's a -- -- baseballs and everything sport yeah did that it is a routine. Player has their routine. That Carlos Beltran Jeff Keppinger. And Orlando Cabrera they were leaders in their clubhouse it's. They had they sit policy in their clubhouse is now so they come to a new team and their policy their stature just a good chance. They're routine has been uprooted and coming in new new clubhouse and hit it changes the routine of everybody has everybody's watching them how -- they -- it will that. You know that the chemistry is so fragile on an everyday basis because it is in every sport -- when you bring new people -- was like Kevin houseguest. You know they have to know I don't -- bad reviews in the morning they need to know you know they got to clean up after themselves that they have breakfast or whatever He. You have to learn the rules of -- clubhouse disease called us around baseball's different so there is that period of time where you're vulnerable. Nobody's comfortable not the guys who are coming in and out the to the guys who are receiving. So the fortunate thing about it all these guys. Have have been -- before. -- they know that. It takes a certain amount of time required to to get that comfort zone. And they're in the process right now today has done wonders because every time you go out and you perform like temperatures before you perform like Beltran score. You and you perform like coach Cabrera. Comfort zone really music you're allowed got to say something of those guys to perform on the field those -- the guys are gonna have the biggest voice give them enough time enough game. Two weeks down the road they're gonna feel like I've been here all year and that's what I think you can see the chemistry start to -- And Giants scored eight runs today better again six for the first time in their 53 home game -- all year so here you guys talk at all the time people love of barbecue. So what would you gators stick around a little -- have a little barbecue here with us what what would you like to have served for you today well -- the ultimate -- barbecue -- -- Iditarod -- coming in here He was killing me. Your dog got no lobster on the girl doll you watch avoidance. The bottom right it would be by your blog again Wisconsin that's lobster on the grill I think we have had lobster -- -- well. -- a lot of dog could provide key Chicago dot it is a voice Bubba has a six time might do group coach lane. -- --
