Machine Generated Transcript
Every week -- like to sit down the general manager. And vice president of the Giants and it's bright saving joins us right here all right let's let the let's start with. What's the over Chad Gaudin but open with his performance he had a big start for you guys and perform quite well. Is he the guy who you look at as the number five starter while wow what a performance we've really needed that game which was great about a half a fish and he was how he uses fastball. Down in the strike zone really attack the strike zone and it was a much needed star quality started you know. I didn't need those numbers to -- brought around my head when he points I looked up. That's how bad the studies that spent so he's a veteran fresh air and talk and post today. He certainly in -- rotation that's your second it's a chance at number five starter you have other options other than going to the minor leagues do you guys have other options that you can use there. Well it's the Jets can be given the first opportunity and as of right now we do have five starters with him in place. I know he and the Toronto Blue Jays are in town -- you talk to him at all what he said anything to him and I have enough I didn't go to Toronto and I don't know if I'll get out there in time today or even tomorrow because of us being in the draft from early -- foursome pilots moved to Tim Lincecum because that seems to be the topic of conversation aren't you actually spoke with Tim Lincecum and there was that discussion. About -- possibly moving to the bullpen. When you hear that discussion. Is that a good thing to have is that something that you guys have discussed of moving him to the -- You know -- open to really any suggestion or any option that's gonna turn around this staff. And he certainly personal. But as we speak and again this it would -- again today and coming up the road trip with a three game. Stint in in Saint Louis he's committed to the five stars and -- want right now. One part of his answers jumped out to me is that quote been if the he'll do what it is it's quote beneficial to the team and playing for. Do you interpret that has all the say that maybe in his mind he's left San Francisco. None out and -- know I think it was an all inclusive dancer and that we know two things about him he's ultra competitive. And he was successful as a reliever so I think he's very open minded to what our needs might sounds weird because of an odd schedule you played in Saint Louis you come home for two and then you're out on the road is there such a thing. But these two games were only in June is there such thing as a must win games this early in the season. What you wanna you wanna beat up would be teams that are -- in in win loss record and we certainly have to patter road games over 500 because we are going. Into a month that we played for Donnelly on the road in this this next road trip's going to be a tough -- so even though it's a two game homestand. You hope to open when the two games Brian we're interacting with the fans we asked a matter Twitter handle at YS TL. -- some questions for you -- may 287 wanted to know this I know to publicize the ball is in the lineup tonight. But was -- his injury because of his weight. No I don't think it all effect when that when they did all the diagnostics I guess this was an old here line. And -- is actually proves the tendon in and around that so no I don't so all right next what are question at YS TL Yahoo! Sports talk live. SF she will want to know this. Busy week for you guys the draft is coming up on Thursday. But the Giants looking at certain positions to fill within the organization. Or do you just go for best players available whenever you draft well -- in a perfect world you want some is that size strength athletic ability and incident some is gonna move faster your system though. For instance as you look back if one of our 25 picks in the first round. Back in 2002 was Matt Cain subject high school kid you want somebody that stats is gonna move fast -- -- have the impact and -- at. In a it's a college player you beat me. Sure that he he's more -- get to the big leagues and probably best of fashion. And high schooler frank good luck this week at home and good luck on Thursday with a trap that's always a great time I don't fans might not know these guys -- were always interested to see who's going to be where the Giants colors that I don't even think that's not accurate.
