Monday BP: When will the Giants be back in the World Series?

Put in your optimistic — or pessimistic — predictions here.

Hello and happy Monday.

The 2020 World Series starts tomorrow. By now you know who’s in it. Personally, I don’t know who’s in it, because this is Friday Brady coming to you on a Monday. But hopefully it’s the Tampa Bay Rays vs. the Atlanta Braves, and not the Houston Astros vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers.

What we all know is that the San Francisco Giants are not in the World Series, marking the sixth straight season that the Giants aren’t one of the final two teams standing.

And so I ask you the obvious and unknowable question: When will the Giants return to the World Series? Not necessarily when will they win it, just when will they again fly an NL pennant and play in the most important games of the season?

I’m going to be optimistic and say 2025. In five years please mock me.

Your turn.

Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

Yes he did.

October 19, 2002: In Game 1 of the World Series, against the Anaheim Angels, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 2nd inning off of Jarrod Washburn. It gave the Giants a 1-0 lead, and they would win 4-3. It was his 5th homer of the postseason.
