For the second time, Sal and Steiny did a live taping of their show at Pacific Coast Brewing Company in Old Oakland. The guest this month was the affable Bill Laskey, a great baseball man and great storyteller.
Lackey talks about all things Giants, A's and Bay Area baseball. The Giants have been slow out of the gate after the All-Star break, and Laskey isn't as nonchalant about the struggles as a lot of the team's fans. Lackey spent the better part of an hour talking all things baseball and it was a boatload of fun.
If you're into the Giants, A's or want to hear some great talk about some old-time baseball -- Dale Murphy, Al Oliver, Will Clark, Tim Raines, Frank Robinson, etc. -- Podcast No. 70 from Sal and Steiny is worth a listen.
Matt and Sal talk about the impact of Warriors center and Hall of Famer Nate Thurmond: not only in his playing days but afterwards too. The Warriors move to San Francisco appears to be an important step closer to coming to fruition despite some well-heeled opposition. If the Warriors changed their name from Golden State to San Francisco or "The City," would many fans defect?
Kevin Durant is now a Golden State Warrior! Holy Shiite.
It wasn't long ago when the Warriors couldn't pull a mediocre free agent let alone maybe the best player in the NBA. So, now that the Warriors have Kevin Durant, what happens next? Well, one thing that already has begun is the Warriors are the most despised team in the league
Hey, that's better than most fans not even knowing where the hell Golden State is. Sal and Steiny talk all about the Durant acquisition and the ramifications to come. How will Durant fit in? Well, of course he'll fit in, but let's get into some nuts and bolts. The Warriors may be better, but they're not as deep. That likely won't matter but it could -- if the Warriors get some bad luck, for example.
Sal and Steiny also talk about Tim Duncan's retirement, the humidity back east and, most important, Steiny's hole-in-one.
