Baseball Barista | 3-Time WS Champion Jeremy Affeldt talks playoff intensity, Giants-Dodgers Game 5 & who will win the ALCS

Thu, 14 Oct 2021
The Baseball Barista with Hunter Pence and Grant Brisbee have a fresh cup of playoff baseball takes ready for you. They are joined by 3-time World Series Champion reliever Jeremy Affeldt. They give their thoughts on Giants-Dodgers Game 5 for all the marbles and how the bullpens will be a big key. Oracle Park will be jumping just like it was when the Giants won their World Series titles in 2010,2012 and 2014. Jeremy talks about how different playoff intensity is then in a regular season game and how you have to always be ready in a playoff game cause anything can happen. Jeremy talks about how baseball brawls are really just dumb and not really a fight at all. He tells a great story about a brawl with the Phillies and an altercation he had with Chase Utley. Grant and Jeremy talk about about freak injuries that happened involving baseball and how Jeremy just seemed to have them happen to him. And the guys discuss the ALCS and who they will think will represent the AL in the World Series- Boston Red Sox or the Houston Astros.
