SDP 5 - SFG 1

Giants are 6-7, in 3rd place, 4 games behind AZD.

But, hey!, we’re ahead of LAD!

It is looking like outfield defense will be a problem for the team. Pence in left rather than right is less damaging, but it is still damaging. Jackson in center and McCutchen in right would have been great five years ago, but neither is as fast as he used to be and neither appears to have very sure handed gloves.

Yeah. I think Pence is pretty much done this year as a regular starter. Maybe Gregor Blanco, with Gorkys Hernandez as a sub. Maybe. If the Giants can be competitive, they might make an OF move at the trade deadline. Big if, there.

But from here, from now, that is a LONG way off.

In the meantime, last night it was the Padres 5, Giants 4.

AZD 11-3 .786 — W3
COR 8-8 .500 -4.0 L1
SFG 6-8 .429 -5.0 L2
SDP 6-8 .375 -6.0 W2
LAD 4-9 .308 -6.5 L3

Ugly loss today to a weak team. San Diego got ten runs, the Giants only had eight baserunners, one of whom scored a run on a sac fly.

Yes, ugly! And SFG had dropped into 4th now, just passed by SDP, and only a half game out of the cellar.

But SFG is only 5.0 games out of 1st!

AZD 11-4 .733 — L1
COR 9-8 .529 -3.0 W1
SDP 7-10 .412 -5.0 W3
SFG 6-9 .400 -5.0 L3
LAD 5-9 .357 -5.5 W1

I don't think that five games rates an "only" optimism. They are playing .400 ball which is a pace for 65 wins, or one more win than 2017.

You are, of course, correct!

At least it would be more optimism than for the Reds who are playing .133 ball, a pace for a 22-140 record.

Ouch. They’re off to a rough start.

Good news on the Giants’ front — they did not lose yesterday. (Okay, it was a travel day.)

The early signs are that this is going to be another lost year. The newly hired help has been no help at all. McCutchen, Jackson and Longoria have a combined -0.6 WAR....sub replacement level. Conversely, the guys the Giants have available to replace them, Hernandez, Blanco and Sandoval, have so far combined for 0.6 offensive WAR

The starting outfield, McCutchen, Jackson and Pence, have combined for - 0.7 WAR. Posey and Panik are cooling off after hot starts. Hundley has been a disaster as the backup catcher.

The team OBA is .288. Yikes.

See any reason for optimism?
