Good morning Giants fans. Today is Memorial Day, so don’t forget to thank a vet and remember those brave men and women that have fought for our freedoms.

But what does Memorial Day usually mean around baseball? Day games! The majority of the league is playing under the sun, including the Giants. They host the Cubs at 12:05 PT today in the first game of their 3-game series.

A game this early in the day is rare for the Giants on a Monday, so that’s when we usually record our podcast. After today, the Giants won’t play this early on a Monday until August when it’s breakfast and baseball in New York.

Since the Giants so rudely interrupted our normal 11 am recording time, we’ve decided to try something new this week. The AtF Podcast is going live for a Giants preview show.

You can listen live starting at 12 pm by clicking the link at the top of the page. We’d love to have you call in as well!

We’re taking calls throughout the show if you want to talk Giants baseball with Chris and Eric call in!

We’ll cover everything you need to know for this series, as well as recap the last few games and talk about another Giants winning streak.

The hot bats of Pablo Sandoval and Hunter Pence will get much discussion. Ryan Vogelsong‘s resurgence will probably also get a mention or two. Also, who can forget Mike Morse‘s Sunday in the park?

The Giants are 32-18, are in first place in the NL West and have the best record in baseball. They lead the Rockies by 5 games, which is their biggest lead this season.

The Cubs are, well, the Cubs. They hae the fewest wins in baseball (18) and have the 2nd worst win percentage (.375) behind only Houston.

The pitching matchups for the series.

Monday 1:05 PT: RHP Jeff Samardzija (0-4, 1.46 ERA) vs. RHP Yusmeiro Petit (3-1, 4.76 ERA)

Tuesday 7:15 PT: RHP Jake Arrieta (1-0, 2.33) vs. RHP Tim Hudson (4-2, 2.13)
