Former Giants coach Tim Flannery to pinch hit — in the PA booth

You may recall Flannery as the Giants’ frenetic third base coach from 2007-14.

“I’m not going to do anything nuts,” Flannery said. “That’s my one thing going into it.”

Knowing that Flannery has serious musical chops, I just had to lob a suggestion his way:
