We’re still more than five months away from the San Francisco Giants playing a baseball game. And given where the world was five months ago, it’s probably not too smart to start projecting what things will look like too far in the future. But as of right now, it looks like there just might be some fans in those hard green plastic seats at Oracle Park when the Giants have their home opener on April 9 against the Colorado Rockies.
Instead, the World Series features the Dodgers for the third time in four years and Rays for the first time since 2008. It’s more fitting than Braves-Astros on a national stage because the final teams were the No. seeds in the expanded 16-team tournament, the only ones to reach 40 wins in the 60-game mini-season.
The reviews of the San Francisco Giants are marching right along, and today is a fun one: shortstop Brandon Crawford. Season stats 54 games, 193 plate appearances, . OPS, 8 home runs, 28 RBI, 15 walks to 47 strikeouts 116 OPS+, 112 wRC+, 1.2 rWAR, 1.0 fWAR Status throughout the season Crawford began the year on the Opening Day roster, and stayed on the roster all season long.
