The San Francisco Giants had a slow offseason while waving goodbye to three of their best players from 2020. What are their biggest offseason regrets?
Spring training is nearly upon us which means that the offseason will fade into the background as we get closer to games that count. Before it becomes a distant memory, we should examine what the biggest regrets are for the San Francisco Giants this offseason.
With numerous holes on the roster and weaknesses across the board in the lineup, rotation and bullpen, there are plenty of potential regrets. That to make no mention of a dissatisfied fan base.
The current state of the team leaves a lot to be desired, and while the Giants probably could not have turned themselves into a contender over the course of a single offseason, they definitely left some gaping holes that do not seem likely to be filled by younger talent any time soon.
Some will argue that is the point. If 2020 is going to be a rebuilding year, roster holes are to be expected from a team that does not have plans on contending in the near future.
Others will say that professional sports teams should try to win no matter the current state of the franchise and that the team should continually be looking for ways to better the roster.
It is clear what path the Giants chose, but there were several moves they could have made this offseason that would not have sacrificed their future while still improving the on-field product in 2020.
So let's take a look at five regrets the Giants should have from this offseason.
