The San Francisco Giants Continue to be an Embarrassment
By Jake Mastroianni
After losing two-of-three to the Chicago White Sox, the San Francisco Giants continue their embarrassing play in 2017.
I know the season is over and wins and loses at this point don’t mean much, but come on. They were absolutely embarrassed by the Chicago White Sox in the last two games of that series. It’s like this team isn’t even trying.
I don’t care how far out a team is, there has to be some sort of sense of pride on this team.
This is what concerns me the most about trying to re-tool for 2018. Nothing is going to change unless there is an attitude change in that clubhouse.
From what I’ve witnessed this year, no one is showing a sense of desire or urgency to improve. Why should we think that will be any different next year?
This idea that the front office wants to stand pat and hope things turn around next year makes me want to hurl.
The talent is there, I understand that, but what did that get us this year?

I’ll admit, I thought the San Francisco Giants were going to win the National League West this year. They had the pitching, the offense and you hoped an improved bullpen. Well, that didn’t quite work out.
Anyone who has watched this team this year knows something is not right about the psyche of this team. In my opinion it should have been blown up and rebuilt.
This past weekend against the White Sox, the third worst team in baseball behind the Phillies and Giants, continued those concerns for me.
After winning the first game of the series 9-2, the offense scored just one run in each of the next two games. Both of the starting pitchers in those last two games for the White Sox have ERAs over five.

I hate to be so doom-and-gloom, and I want to tell you there is a reason to keep watching this team, but games like that make it really hard for me to tune in and believe in the future. It’s just embarrassing.
