The first two weeks of the season have not been pretty for the San Francisco Giants, but as people keep telling me, it’s early.
After a poor opening week to start the season going 2-5, the Giants followed that up by going 3-4 at home.
The week looked promising after winning a 3-game series at home against the Arizona Diamondbacks to start the week.
But after splitting the first two games with the Colorado Rockies, the Giants dropped the last two games of the 4-game series.
They’re now just 5-9 on the season and remain in the basement of the National League West. The Rockies are at the top with an exact opposite record of 9-5.
Posey was hit in the head with a pitch and placed on the 7-day disabled list for concussion symptoms. He is expected to be back this week, and the Giants certainly need his bat back in the lineup.
Things don’t look as good for Parker as he crashed into a wall and is expected to be out 8-10 weeks.
Another thing you have to consider is the Giants have only had one off day so far. And that was the Monday after Opening Night.
Most teams have two or three off days in the first two weeks of the season, but the Giants have played 13 straight games.
They do begin week three with an off day on Monday. Hopefully that will give the team time to rest and regroup to get on track.
Before we begin prep for week three, let’s take a closer look at the offense, starting pitching and bullpen through two weeks.
