The SF Giants may not be in the MLB postseason, but there’s still plenty of orange and black DNA all over the eight remaining championship contenders.
You didn’t expect the SF Giants to have a chance at the playoffs. No one did. It didn’t matter. With an expanded postseason and a strong stretch of mid-season play they were right there looking at a playoff birth and you, like me, like all of us, believed it would happen for enough time to be upset when it didn’t.
Were there still plenty of positives to take away from this season? Absolutely. It doesn’t mean there still isn’t at least a little sting leftover. Still, there’s baseball on. We’re going to watch it even if it reminds us of how we could be watching Kevin Gausman hand a 2-1 lead to the bullpe… Maybe it’s not the worst thing in the world.
Anyway, with eight teams remaining in the divisional series, we’ll take you through all four matchups and the various Giants ties in each.
