The San Francisco Giants huh? Who woulda guessed they would have the year they’re having.
What makes this season even better is the fact that those who move out to the Golden Coast seem to suddenly become infected with an amazing taste in music. Well, according to Giants starting pitcher, Kevin Gausman, that exact thing happened to him.
In a rare moment after Tuesday night’s win over the New York Mets, Gausman was asked about his taste in music. The question was prompted by his sudden change of warm-up song to “Money” by Pink Floyd. Giants extending their All-Star shortstop and fan favorite Brandon Crawford had some speculating that it was a nod to his contract extension, but Guasman says it was just his newfound taste in music. 
 
“I got into them last year, being on the West Coast I wanted to get into some weird music.” Gausman said postgame. “I hopped more into rock n’ roll since I’ve been out here.” 
Guasman who started in Batlimore, and bounced around a couple years, has finally appeared to find his footing again here in San Francisco as a lynchpin in the Giants rotation. Gausman said he had “Money” as his warm-up song in the past, but didn’t know much about it then. Now, he says the song fires him up.
“I just think it’s such a cool intro, with the cash register. It just fires me up every time I hear it,” Gausman concluded.
