All-Star Giants second baseman Joe Panik joins host Jeff Todd on this week’s edition to discuss his offseason rehab from a back injury, the development of his power at the plate, and how his background as a finance major impacts how he follows contractual matters in baseball. Panik offers insight into his incorporation of statistical analysis in his day-to-day preparation for opposing pitchers and also shares fond memories of retired teammates Jeremy Affeldt and Tim Hudson as well as a story of an influential conversation with teammate Hunter Pence early in his career. Following that, MLBTR’s Steve Adams hops on the show to discuss some of the most glaring team needs from around the league that, to this point, haven’t been addressed.
