San Francisco Giants 2016 Season Grades: Outfielders
The San Francisco Giants bowed out of the 2016 Postseason thanks to another blown save by the bullpen. The Cubs advanced, winning 6-5, and the series 3-1.
Since I don’t get to write fun things about NLCS games, and the San Francisco Giants being the Dynasty of the decade, etc. etc. etc., I’m stuck doing stuff like this: 2016 Season Grades. Trust me, these are somewhat fun to do, from an analytical point of view. But I’d much rather be discussing a 2016 NLCS and the first postseason matchup between the Giants and Dodgers since they moved west. The Giants bullpen sure had a say in what I get to talk about now. Alas, here we are, the Giant’s 2016 Season Grades.
We’re going to go by position grouping, and here is the schedule:

The Criteria: These grades will be graded on somewhat of a curve. The scale will take into account expectations based on past performance, or lack of past performances(rookies), injuries, and other odd things. We will not include any position player that appeared in less than 30 games. Nor will we include any pitcher that appeared in less than 20, with the exception being starters. The Minimum amount of starts to be included is 10.
Let’s get started!
