It’s not something a lot of fans want to think, but there were several disappointments from the San Francisco Giants in 2018.

With any season there comes a handful of disappointments. Whether that’s not reaching your goals, or players underachieving. The San Francisco Giants had their fair share in 2018.

Coming into 2018 many believed the Giants had put together a squad that was capable of at least competing for a Wild Card spot, and after early struggles from NL West teams, it looked like they had a shot at the division.

A starting rotation that should have featured Madison Bumgarner, Johnny Cueto, and Jeff Samardzija all year would surely be good enough to make them a contender.

They also bolstered the lineup with the additions of Andrew McCutchen and Evan Longoria, hoping to find more firepower in the middle of the lineup.

After a hot start, we hoped this was the year that Joe Panik broke out as an offensive player. And we hoped to see Brandon Belt finally reach that 20 home run plateau.

We also hoped we get to see at least a couple of young prospects burst onto the scene in 2018, but that never materialized either — whether it be because of an injury or lack of production.

Don’t get too depressed, there were certainly some positives to take away from 2018, which you can read about another day, but you won’t read about those in this article.

We are going to give you our three biggest disappointments of the 2018 season for the San Francisco Giants.
