It seems like it was just yesterday when the San Francisco Giants were eliminated by the Chicago Cubs in Game 4 of the National League Division Series, as Chicago stunned San Francisco with a ninth-inning comeback win.
But a new season is here! Spring training is an interesting one for the San Francisco Giants. The team is conducting open tryouts in left field, old familiar faces are trying to reinvent themselves with the Giants (like Matt Cain and Michael Morse), and newcomers are getting their first taste as to what it means to wear the orange and black.
Baseball pundits and analysts are busy making their predictions by crunching the numbers and using sabermetrics. But one woman is providing another perspective.

In the below audio interview, Mallis and I discuss what she sees in the season ahead for these San Francisco Giants players: the struggling Cain, newcomer Mark Melancon, and the almost 30-year-old Buster Posey.
It will definitely be a key year for Matt Cain. With Bobby Evans hinting that he may get sent to the minors if he can’t make the 25 man roster, the pressure has definitely been turned up a notch. With spring training coming to a close, Cain’s final performances in Arizona will be quite telling as to what they do with him.
As for Posey, the idea of a “new beginning” and “increased ambition” should get Giants fans excited, especially after having a down year at the plate in 2016.
Stay tuned as the final two weeks of Spring Training commence this week! We’ll have coverage of roster moves, where the battles are at, and what you can/cannot expect from the San Francisco Giants in 2017.
