The San Francisco Giants aren't going to the postseason in 2015. Again, following a World Series championship season they found themselves unable to stay healthy and produce back to back postseasons.
But you gotta give it to Bruce Bochy and staff for giving it the old college try. As quick as starters were going down with injuries, they were bringing up unknowns to fill spots and make a gallant push down the stretch.
Having a shot at making the playoffs in the final week of the regular season, even if it were a long shot, ain't bad. An 83-76 record with three games left guarantees them a winning record. Giants had the sixth best record in the National League. The five teams above them are in the playoffs. Go figgah.
It was a disappointing season mostly because of injuries and suspect pitching at times, but the Giants are by no means a team in rebuilding mode. They've got all the parts to continue their run to the championship come next season. There will be changes, but there won't be an overhaul of the team.
Thanks for a competitive season San Francisco Giants. Let's do it again next year. Psssst! it's an even year boys.
So who do I root for in the MLB postseason? Why the amazing New York Mets of course. They meet the dah bums (Dodgers) in the NL Divisional round.
Let's Go Mets!
