Friday BP: Prospects, not wins

You’ll get one, but not the other.

The 2020 MLB season is right around the corner, which means it’s time to prepare for two things: San Francisco Giants baseball, and San Francisco Giants losses.

Get used to both, folks. Sources familiar with the San Francisco Giants tell me that the team anticipates played 162 games this year, which is a lot of games. Those same sources could neither confirm nor deny the rumors of the team’s exorbitant loss total.

Las Vegas, however, could confirm those reports, as they set the over/under for the Giants win total and a nice-and-a-half 69.5.

Losses mean two things: First, a lack of wins. Second, an abundance of prospects.

While President of Baseball Operations Farhan Zaidi obviously cannot confirm the team’s likely losing ways just yet, he can confirm that the team will be active and speedy in promoting their exciting prospects, of which there are now thankfully many.

According to Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports Bay Area, who transcribed a KNBR interview, Zaidi is openly planning for the prospects to be in the big leagues this year.

“Promoting guys aggressively and rewarding performance, rewarding guys addressing areas of weakness that have been pointed out to them as things that they need to address, that’s a real positive,” Zaidi said. ”I expect us to continue on that path in 2020.”

Well, that will be fun, at least.
