Hello and happy Wednesday.
On Tuesday, the 2021 Minor League Baseball season began after being absent for all of 2020. It was a beautiful thing, and full of San Francisco Giants prospects doing exciting things. Like, for instance, this:
For many of you, it’s probably been a very long time since you were this excited about a group of Giants prospects. For others — such as myself — it’s the most excited we’ve ever been for Giants prospects.
There are some of baseball’s top prospects, like Marco Luciano. There are great prospects trying to force the issue and make the Majors this year, like Heliot Ramos. There are raw, exciting players like Kyle Harrison. And there’s a heartwarming story, as Drew Robinson has made the AAA Opening Day roster a year after losing his eye in a suicide attempt.
This is not an ad. It’s just a reminder for those of you who haven’t found the Giants farm system worth watching in the last few years: they’re worth watching this year, and it’s easy and affordable to do so.
