The San Francisco Giants just suffered back-to-back incredibly discouraging losses at the hands of the defending World Series Champion Houston Astros.

Remember when the San Francisco Giants were defending World Series Champs? Three times? That was nice.

With the Giants most recent loss, you can feel the Giants bandwagon lightening up a whole lot. Their window for a playoff appearance was nearly slam shut over the past couple games by a guy named Marwin and the Astros third-string first baseman.

After a deflating series loss like this, it’s hard to blame fans for abandoning hope in this years team, but there is a lot to be happy about.

  1. If the Giants go on a playoff run, it will be one of the most unlikely and exciting runs in the history of the franchise.
  2. The youth movement has begun. With the emergence of Dereck Rodriguez, Andrew Suarez, Steven Duggar, and Austin Slater, San Francisco Giants fans have a lot to look forward to in the near future.
  3. They’re better than last year. If you told me the Giants would be playing meaningful games come August, I would believe it because I love them. But most people wouldn’t.

For those of you who are looking towards the 2019 season already, this is the article for you.

There are plenty of free agents hitting the market this season, including the prize pony Bryce Harper. Lots of fans would love to see the Giants make a serious run at Harper.

But what will they do if (when) they don’t land Harper? I had some ideas:
