Either Mac Williamson’s due or he’s done, right?

The Giants have washed out so many hitting prospects over the years because of their organizational impatience with people under the age of 30. They’ve been saying “Those damn kids” for nearly two generations now, and Mac Williamson’s career feels like it was gobbled up by this mentality.

The key with young players is to not give the manager veteran options to turn to, because he will, without fail, turn to the veterans. And the veterans, as we know, get the longest possible period of trial and error. Mac Williamson’s had some chances, and he’s done well when given an extended look, but hopefully, he knows now that he’s not going to get an extended look and figures out a way to succeed this weekend.

But, of course, the healthiest approach he can have is to not tie his happiness to other people’s judgment. If he has personal goals and meets them, then it doesn’t matter if his manager thinks he’s a failure because he went 0-for-2 with 2 walks and scored the team’s only run.
