Thursday BP: Where do the Giants most need to improve?

If the Giants want to make the postseason in 2021, they need to make some improvements.

Hello and happy Thursday.

If the San Francisco Giants want to make the postseason in 2021, then they need to be better than they were in 2020. I do not believe this to be a particularly controversial statement.

But where will they target — in free agency and in trades — as the area to get better? Hopefully all of them, but one area usually gets targeted more than the others. The bullpen was the weakness of the 2020 team, but also the least important part of a team, so you could make a case that it should be targeted most or least.

So let’s pretend the Giants can spend a small amount of money and/or make small trades across the board, except in one area, where they can spend a big chunk of change or swing a big trade. What do you want?

Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

He sure did.

October 22, 2002: In Game 3 of the World Series, against the Anaheim Angels, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 5th inning off of Ramon Ortiz, scoring Jeff Kent. It cut the Giants deficit to 8-4, and they would lose 10-4, falling behind in the series 2-1. It was his 7th homer of the postseason.
