5 takeaways from the SF Giants weekend series against Washington
2. Joey Bart is here to stay
While the young catcher isn’t putting up eye popping numbers, and is striking out at a huge rate, it’s clear that while no one can replace Buster Posey, Joey Bart is doing his best to try.
He was great in the first home stand, and while the offensive numbers have slowed down, Joey has been great behind the plate, and it’s clear that he’s the future of the Giants catching line.
This season will be a fun one all around, and if Joey Bart can become the player many within the organization expect him to, than this team could be a genuine World Series contender in 2022.
3. The SF Giants lineup is contributing 1-9
The SF Giants scored a whole lot of runs during this weekend sweep (to the point where Gabe Kapler had to defend himself and this team), and it’s coming from all over the lineup.
Joc Pederson, Brandon Crawford and Belt, Darin Ruf, Wilmer Flores, Thairo Estrada and more are all producing, and while it’s not sustainable as guys will start to struggle, it proves how much depth and quality this team has.
Sure, the Washington pitching staff isn’t extraordinary in any capacity, but the Giants did what they needed to do, and if the team continues to hit, they will be a very scary proposition come October.
