Like i said overall these projections should be taken with a grain of salt but are pretty realistic. I do have a few gripes with some of these:
The bullpen isn’t projected to be phenomenal for a lack of a better word, and that’s completely understandable. Melancon is projected to bounce back and have a nice season, with Strickland, Dyson and Smith also performing well. My one concern with these projections is
. Why in the world is Osich pitching fifty innings? After a rough couple of seasons, i would hope
does not give him that big of a role this season.
Again, these are just numbers spit out from an algorithm projecting a general idea for how the Giants will do this season. Things will change here in the coming weeks and at the end of the season these numbers will probably look a lot different. But if you’re looking for a general consensus for what the Giants expectations are this year, i think this could be a good tool to use. There should be much improvement up and down the lineup, the rotation and bullpen should be able to do its job if healthy, and the Giants should be in the hunt for a wild card spot throughout the season.
