A Bad, Bad Start

Already it’s looking an awful lot like 2017 isn’t going to be the Giants’ season.  With today’s 8-0 pounding administered by the Rockies in Denver, the Giants are now 6-13, their worst start since 1983.

The Giants went 79-83 in 1983, which wasn’t dreadful but a big comedown after the Giants had just missed the play-offs in 1982.  With their best pitcher Madison Bumgarner injured in a damn fool way (riding dirt bikes during the baseball season), and likely to be out for a while, things sure don’t look bright.

There is talk of the possibility of the Giants fining Bumgarner, but the commentariat seems to think that won’t happen.  There’s a good chance the team’s kangaroo court, if they have one, will fine Bumgarner something like $500 to pay for a party later in the season.

There’s still time for the Giants to turn things around, but a start this bad usually says something about the team.

    Andrew Baggerly of the San Jose Mercury News is already suggesting the Giants treat 2017 as a rebuilding year and trade away veterans for prospects.
