The San Francisco Giants Will Win Again … Someday
By Jake Mastroianni
It’s hard to imagine right now during an 11-game losing streak, but I can promise you that the San Francisco Giants will win again someday.
In the midst of another disappointing season, it’s hard for anyone to get excited about the future of the San Francisco Giants.
The 2018 season certainly was an improvement over last year, but it wasn’t enough to contend in a highly contested National League Central.
Coming into Friday night’s game against the NL West-leading Colorado Rockies, the Giants have lost 11 games in a row, and get this, they haven’t won a game in the month of September!
We are nearly halfway through an entire month and this team hasn’t won a single game!
The offense has been so terrible that they’ve only managed to score more than three runs in a game this month once, and they lost that game 9-8 to the team they are about to face over the weekend.
But enough about that. I told myself I was going to write something positive about the Giants, and here I go again being negative.

The San Francisco Giants will win another game this year — this I can promise you … I think.
But beyond that, I believe the Giants will once again be a winning franchise in the near future. There is too much love for this team and too much money on the table for them not to contend very soon.
In order for that to happen, I think hard decisions will have to be made. But there is no reason why this team can’ turn this thing around and get back to being perennial postseason contenders again.
The rest of this month and possibly the next couple of years could be difficult, but look at what teams like the Houston Astros, Chicago Cubs, and Atlanta Braves to a lesser extent have been able to do.
The blueprint is there for teams to rebuild a dynasty, and the Giants have an advantage over most teams because of their loyal fanbase and high payroll.
Once the front office realizes this dynasty is officially over and make an attempt to rebuild the farm system, we’ll start to see this team start winning again.
For now, we might as well keep this losing streak going to help the Rockies beat out the Dodgers for the West title. Watch us sweep them this weekend…
