San Francisco Giants pitcher Logan Webb is letting fans in on the grind of the MLB. More specifically, he talked about issues seen on the team following a recent trip to Mexico City.
The Giants battled the Padres in a two-game set south of the border at the end of April. Apparently, players brought some problems back to the US.
In what was an entertaining series, San Francisco was swept in a pair of high scoring matchups. The opener saw the two teams combine for 11 home runs, which nearly tied the Major League record. The Padres would wind up winning that contest, 16-11.
In Game 2, the Giants blew a late lead by allowing three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to fall, 6-4.
Piling onto the two-game sweep, San Francisco players apparently brought some discomfort back to the States as they prepared for a three-game set with the Houston Astros.
Logan Webb went into detail about how the team is currently battling some stomach issues.
“I think three-quarters of our clubhouse has the s–ts.” 💩😂

“The whole trip was very grindy, I guess,” Webb said. “It’s been a mental grind. It’s been a physical grind. I think 3/4 of our clubhouse has the s–its… It’ll be good to get back home, for sure. Hopefully the s–ts go away.”
Luckily for Webb, the team returns to California soon.
After taking two of three games from the Astros, the Giants officially closed out their road trip. They’ll take on the Brewers this Friday, which will start a six-game homestand.
