Episode #54 – Giants Cactus League Baseball Musings

Episode 54 Cover_edited-5

In this latest ASP Stuff Radio episode, the deep thinkers Alberotle, Steveocrates and Paulato dive into sports, specifically a recap of Spring Training for the San Francisco Giants.  They discuss who looked good, who looked terrible and who should not be wearing short shorts to a baseball game.  Besides disturbing sights, we talk about the mentality of the team going into the season, the tough April schedule and break down the roster from top to bottom.  Please keep in mind this was recorded before the injuries to the Giants two-most depended upon starters this season, Madison Bumgarner and Jeff Samardzija.  So don’t think we were just ignoring that big hurdle the team will have to overcome to start the season.  No easy task!  And Paulato gives his thoughts on the GOP tax plan…let’s just say, “50 extra bucks a month in your pocket now vs. a trillion and half extra dollars in deficit for a future generation to figure out?  Sure, I’ll take it!” —Paulato
