PHOENIX, AZ – APRIL 02: Pitching coach Dave Righetti

As we continue our grades from the San Francisco Giants in 2017, it’s now time to take a look at the Starting Pitchers.

Our 2017 Season Grades consist of many factors. The most important is how did they perform compared to expectations. Other factors will include injuries and missed time. Most of all, the grade comes from what was expected of them before the season, and in general how did they perform. This is the third of our series, and there are still plenty more to come. Check on the last slide for our publishing schedule, and links to those previously posted.

Ah, starting pitching. Remember when the Giants were good enough at it that they could win big shiny rings? Me too. Alas, their starting pitching wasn’t great this year. Of course, not much of anything they did this year was good. But let’s analyze it anyways!

Who was good? Who stunk? An even better question: who better than I- someone who last pitched competitively as a 13 year old in Little League- to critique men who get paid outrageous sums of money to throw a baseball well?

Probably lots of of people. Who cares? I sure don’t.

Let us dig in to the 2017 Giants starting pitching staff.
