Kontos: 'The excitement around here is great'
-- are raising Arizona coverage started here on chronicle live and head down to the desert. Georgetown don't remember that Giants relief corps he joins us here on the program and let's start would get real games started on Saturday I know you guys are done fielding practice bunds and fielding first base and all adds up. How happy are you that you get to pitch in real games start Saturday. I'm very excited to get -- wrong again you know you can only do so much -- -- -- deal with -- stuff but it's the excitement around here has been getting great -- -- -- tomorrow and enough from then on out. You know we'll get last year in the way Bruce bush -- that relief staff that he hadn't at times. It appeared that maybe didn't that the that the roles weren't as defined as maybe we would hope they work do you guys as a relief -- you guys know what you roles are right now. Comedy you know -- none of that I think Serge did not getting the majority of the save opportunities from what I've heard I think everybody else trying to. Just going out there doing now where they're going to be have a good I think we all have a good. Idea about losing anywhere I think to Seattle half Val Lopez to grow more into the back on the back of the bullpen as as of right now I can't see myself from -- being kind of that's. The middle to late and then I think there's still wants spot left open for for people to. For somebody is that it. Can people identify Sergio Romo now they shaved his beard. Yeah he looks the same -- same guys saying come on his -- Jesus -- there's no more -- it is just limited chance drop it. Questions about. Maybe that's -- good nickname that's not so bad it's that let's go back to last year you guys when the World Series how does George can't tell us celebrate winning the World Series would you do. You know what I did too much -- was a very shot short off season to begin -- I went home and I have laser -- surgery right after this season so I flew home -- drove home actually with my dad after the -- after the parade. Handout flew back San Francisco about a week later to have delays -- -- pretty much out of commission for about two weeks. -- then right after that it was Thanksgiving in the work Allison and throwing started against -- so it was a short off season but. Very productive I worked real hard to get to get to coming in the spring training inside has -- a best of shape that I could saw. During the offseason was thought it was quick but I'm ready definitely ready get back into it. You know you sit in your back when you're -- I know you grow up in a suburb of Chicago did you go all the Cubs Red Sox got. I grew up a Cubs guys have always been a big fan of the Cubs I got to watch Kerry woods out twice strikeout game on TV from home. Kind Kerry Wood was always my favorite pitcher growing up solace comes and -- And what was it like when you got to step up on the hill at Wrigley Field last year wearing a Giants uniform listen we know your True Blue to the Giants no question. But as a kid growing up following the Cubs at Wrigley what was that like to pitch there. I mean it was a dream come true I've seen I've seen probably a hundred games at Wrigley Field and and to finally be able to step out there on the mound and compete on it was was a dream and I've -- to want to play baseball since I was five years old and I just want to be out there and then to get out there and finally be able to awful fill that dream. It was good I wish I wish you would have -- -- started with Rizzo had no a home run off for me but you know whatever that is so I sound a little bit then the ball pretty well. That's right next time you go 123 that say you got that out of your way now Georgia and the next time you have an easy candidate to Wrigley Field. This right there when it when hitters come to the plate. They have music played today to pick to pick their own musical on the plate when you come out of the pen what music do you want him to play. Well I'm I'm a huge fan of them on the mound and last year I had Eminem song until I collapse. And it's just a song they're really pumps me up gets me fired up -- disregards I think I'm gonna stick with that -- Is it possible the Marshall Mathers is now old school because when the last and it came out anything new. I think he came out some news there might have been a collaboration I think in the last month or so he's come out to new song equipped with fifty send somebody else and it but. From what I hear the -- on the street sense coming out the new album sometime soon so hopefully he'll be -- maybe -- news soon. I that sound gay in a good way that is in any Q what's the name of the song and an -- -- it. But you've played so I -- -- like collapse I'll collapse -- -- on my my I've had my pod whatever it's called nowadays. George out of them. -- -- -- on their give adolescent I'm gonna do that George -- go get some sleep because game start on Saturday thanks so much for joining us here chronicle live. -- -- -- -- -- --
