There R Giants Pod-56 with Joe Ritzo


Tonight, the Low-A West Championship Series begins pitting the San Jose Giants against the Fresno Grizzlies. The Giants will be trying to win their first championship since the 2010 season, which ended their Cal League dynasty of the first decade of this century. To get you all set for the championship match, Joe Ritzo stops by today to discuss the changes on this San Jose roster, how they look heading into the playoffs, and whether this is the best San Jose team Joe’s ever seen.

Joe will be calling each game of the series, starting tonight. If you can’t listen in (or watch on MiLBTV), follow Joe on Twitter @JoeRitzo to get all the details. And, of course, you can follow me as well @rog61 to find all of my thoughts and work, or subscribe to There R Giants to get all of my writing delivered straight to your Inbox.
