Bochy: 'Angel made us a different club'
Bochy credits chemistry and pitching to the Giants' current success.
So let's go to Nashville in the winter meetings in -- the Giants manager Bruce coaching joining us here on chronicle live and Bruce you get the good news yesterday Angel -- -- for years he'll be a member. Of your Giants club how important was it for you know you're gonna get that -- back next year. Our guys thought it was critical I mean we needed a leadoff hitter and and a center fielder no better -- back -- -- -- -- Big Gabe Gross. -- -- before -- I enjoy these playing San Francisco he loves the ballpark and you know the fans so. It was important I thought that the -- guy who's done a great job on him. A guy gets a four year deal when there -- other implications with that and a lot of Giants fans kind of look at the minor league system and they see Gary brown and -- are hopeful that they'll see this young kid with speed. Coming quickly but there's a four year deal for Angel -- god. Mean that they development for Jerry Brown is going along a little slower than UN anticipated. Well a I don't think there's quite the case. I mean when -- Gary Brown's ready wont wont find a slot forma. You know we use a field this point we we news center fielder. For next year in these you know for a couple years in. You know these things have a way working out this was not about the Gary -- as much as. The job and Angel did fours who made this a different club here's a guy is one of those base runners and regain my covers a lot of ground out there and do a lot of great things with the bad and now. When when you have but the unit just came -- World Series -- you wanna keep. Pretty much to the same club you have if you can in especially guys who played such a. A big role in. Our success in included. Brian Wilson couldn't come to an agreement by Friday but he's he can still re signed with the Giants although he's a free agent how much are you trying to. Recruit Brian Wilson to consider coming back to the Giants. Well I'll I'll give Brian -- have a chance to talk to me it to him. Would like to. You talk to him on the phone at least in the number one yeah at least. Good chance to thank him for all he did to contribute. To our success of the Oakland won the World Series. I know these are always. Difficult times where the players of business. And you know Brian for warm from what I hear we're we're happy about. -- -- non tender -- its this part of the game in. But now hopefully. You know some -- have a chance to talk and talk about it. It sounds like you think you might not come back is that where you're leaning right now. I don't know I haven't had chance to use appetite dome a worries I don't coming back in. So this way I would like to -- call in. At least talk to them. All right let's get to the keys to success for the Giants you guys went two of the last three World Series that's magical. Is there one something out there a special magical potion that you can point to and say you know what. In in this three year stretch this is the one common denominator we've had that's why we're successful. Well I think it's source with a pitching so I think you have to look at. As the starters and bullpen. And the job that they've done you can throw five guys out there. Starters -- talking about an hour on a consistent basis that you you chance to win. You know you're probably gonna win more games than any of the bullpen who have done the job and our bullpen as. Holden you know believe either or or all of them -- Beijing -- us kids come back. That's that's always a good thing in I go back to the Atlanta Braves in the in the ninety's did a great staff and bullpen in the -- and stay in the more games -- probably gonna win and it's really the new Q your success this. Really if you look at the 2010 and 2012 team. They're good spirit -- -- different -- buster was pitch him but do occur around the field is really completely different club if you look at the pitching staff. Very similar the only difference. Post season this year was Zito was was starting in Timmy went through a bullpen that. You know the same pretty much -- took the ball -- so we've had the same pitching. -- -- a little fun after these winter meetings you get to really enjoy an off season how much fishing you gonna get it. Well I had a lot of chance you'll appreciate them -- go to Pablo and and gets summoned some tuna fishing and at least with that would be at two maybe three day trip. It's. It's a short off season as well worth it put. And I have a you know love family to see Brothers sisters. Nephews. So I I got it you know try to squeeze all that in but that same time as purgatory you approach spring training mostly in January. Then you gotta get your job done because they pick up your option for Tony fourteen so you know you got more work ahead yet response you congratulations on -- the option picked up. Thanks so much for joining us enjoy the winter meetings and enjoy your time off thanks for joining us chronicle live. I guys saying things for me on our it was season.
