Here we take a look at five things that we need to see from the San Francisco Giants in spring training to feel good about the upcoming season.
While I am well aware that spring training stats don’t mean anything, there certainly are plenty of conclusions that can be made during spring training. Otherwise, why would coaches make decisions on who makes a team during spring training?
We know wins and losses are certainly meaningless because the Arizona Diamondbacks went 24-8 last spring and we know how that turned out in the regular season. But instead, you have to look at each individual performance and circumstance to see how well a player is developing.
The San Francisco Giants still have a few loose ends to tie up this spring, and there are certainly some key areas that we’d like to see the team improve on this season. Those questions can be answered during spring training.
The way spring training usually works for me is that the first week or two is to shake the rust off, and then you have three or four weeks to really evaluate each player, and then the last few weeks is just trying to stay healthy for Opening Day.
In that thee or four week span we need to see a few things happen to feel good about the upcoming season.
