Ep6: Dodgers & Joey Lucchesi


Fresh off a winning streak is a great time to catch up on the Hot Lava Padcast. This week Kevin Acee and Jay Posner discuss why this series against the struggling Dodgers is a sort of measuring stick, and San Diego Padres pitcher Joey Lucchesi explains his “churve.”

Pence could fill the Mark DeRosa role of cheerleader.

Fair or foul Brandon Belt will win a gold glove this year? I know it's early in the season but last season before injury he was for sure gonna win one.

All the love in the clubhouse are BEST. The joy is back in San Francisco!!!! Teamwork.... still torture but teamwork. Any given day somebody will end the torture.

Posey is 1 guy on team that can figure out god swing in a 4 for 33 he's going to be hot for awhile again he's a career 308 hitter with a track record come September his numbers will be what they normally are.

Foul. Pence is at the end of his career and besides Wiliamson, Slater and Duggar are doing well in AAA. Pence may get the Rueter treatment.

At the game, I was looking down during Williamson’s swing and only heard it. I immediately just looked to the outfielders to try and find where it was heading, knowing it was gone

Best: Stratton and Mac best. WORST: Brandon losing his streak. But those are both positives besides the win. Even though we did have errors.

Belt will continue to fluctuate, especially when Uranus planet of expect the unexpected goes into Taurus in mid May.....epic at bat though......Taurus will not be rushed :)😊✌️

Belt has been on fire lately! I think it’s because I saw him out to dinner with his family not long ago. Kidding

Worst: It was the the giants were trying to catch basketballs with their gloves, Andrew, Evan, let Klay and Steph handle that.

Mac Williamson is player of the game. Could this be like 2010 when posey came up from minors and they rode all the way to the title

Best: Giants outsiders finally updated their intro, at teh beginning of the year, you had a intro with span still in it.

Foul : don’t think he gets all the playing time . But it’s not a negative thing we can have another seasoned veteran him and panda.

I think the Giants did a great job tonight on there defense and hitting, I hope they could do it again tomorrow night

Player of game Chris stratton he has grit and toughness and had enough guts to pitch through 2 errors he's Matt Cain 2.0

Best: The Giants cheapest aquisition (watson) has been the most effective, 0.84 era and another scoreless outing

I like Strick, but I have to change the channel and just follow At Bat when he’s up in the 9th. Too stressful.

Fair Belt has turned the corner. He'll have his high streaks and slumps but task is to be consistent all year.

Bonus worst: The idea of Harper in a Giants uniform. Don't think they'll be able to afford him at $400 million.

Stratton. Loved seeing Mac hit that homer, but Stratton made the game. Pitching through those errors was straight IMPRESSIVE.

Foul. It's been stated many times he's put in the work and made adjustments. Can't see it being just a high.

Fair at least for a bit to see if he can still be serviceable. If not, probably goes to the bench. They will not DFA him.

Player(s) of the game: Posey/Mcutchen duo, posey finally has a guy to bring in with all of his 2 out hits because Mcutchen can get on base, last year giants couldn't get on for Posey

We have two bests today. The new Big Mac and the Stratton performance. I didn't see a worst tonight!!!!

FAIR: Brandon Belt knows our park .Besides him Mac will put up Barry Bonds numbers. But Belt has been belting them. Proud of him!!!!

Please don’t send Graveman back on the mound.

The problem was the rotation. Problem partly solved ... For the moment. Too much talent to not shine with offense. Keep it going starters!

Looking to start this trip with a W!


Comment on Facebook

Smolinski called onto PH....misses bunt, grounds into DP! #unreal 1st & 2nd with no outs!

Smolinski may have saved himself a bus ride to Nashville! Finally!

I know Hatcher needs work but man he is awful

Hatcher the Disaster. Why?

Chapman can’t hit a lick right now!!! Id consider moving back to #8 or #9

Smolinski is just a double play machine! Why does he have a spot on the roster?

Smolinski is terrible. Why take the bunt sign off with one strike?

Nice W to start the roadtrip..Cahill with a descent start..bullpen solid except for Hatch..and the bats did their thing .let's keep it goin

Hey Smolinski AAA is calling or hopefully another team is..your days r numbered

A's bat around and score 6-runs in the 9th to bust the game wide open. YAHOO!

Boys are playing well in aspects of the game. Fun to watch.

I can't stand smolinski

No more Graveman, time for Brett Anderson to join the rotation


Smolinsky must have something on Bob Melvin....😂.

And the A's have broken it open in the top of the 9th..very nice

Dirty Chirinos. Straight up umpire deception and poor sportsmanship there.

Let's Go Oakland!!

The Unofficial Matt Chapman OPS+ watch is at 159

A's Up 🐘⚾😎

Marcus Panther Semien!

Canha can do!
